How organised is your Christmas??

Christmas has come early to It's a Creative World!!
Okay so talking about Christmas in October is shocking.....BUT if you want to get organised this year you really start with a CHRISTMAS PLANNER :)
I was totally inspired by the links Trish has posted on IACW today, in particular AuntNi's beautiful planner on 2peas. I was tempted to do the same size but chickened out as I wouldn't be able to fit the file into my bag and keep it handy ;)
So onto my planner, the size I went for is 8.5x5.5 for the inside pages, and 6x9 for the cover, which is just mount board covered in YUMMY Chatterbox Gingerbread House papers. I have been saving these for some time so i'm glad they are finally used up.
I painted a BG naked chipboard label holder red, tied some ribbons on the edges and then stuck it to a piece of white cardstock and then onto the front of the book. I hand write 'christmas planner'
I decided to keep each divider page the same to give it a bit of consistancy.

Each section has a handcut label holder with the section title hand written.

I have had drawn all the pages cause of the odd size, but the ones linked in Trish's post are awesome!! And of course so easy to just print off ;)



After finishing all the pages I made 2 holes using my cropodile for bookrings and have hung some christmas charms off the top one. I would like to add pages next year so it's also a book I can use as reference each year, so i'm not sure I want to bind it until it's full (but of course i'm still thinking about that ;) )
Have fun creating your CHRISTMAS PLANNERS and don't forget to leave a link in the comments on IACW with your creations

Caz, I love your blog and often come over, but I am a terrible lurker. Just love this planner - don't know why I never realised I could so totally make my own instead of looking for the ideal one! And thanks for the reminder to scrap my boobies - I planned to and then forgot...
