Christmas Planning

I received my first skinny notebook several years ago from my sister-in-law, Bonnie. I just loved the cute design and the usefulness of this gift, and was inspired to start making some myself. I believe I originally saw the notebook idea on Michelle Wooderson's blog. She has made lots of them over the years as you can see from her blog link. I always get good ideas to CASE when I browse her blog!

The notebooks are lots of fun to make, and lend themselves to all holidays and occasions. This one was made for my friend, Linda, to be used as a holiday planner. I made a cute little reindeer tag to go along with it.

The notebook base is kraft paper. The jar is a PTI diecut. The green dotted paper with the pinked edge is also a PTI diecut. The peppermint stickers were purchased at Hobby Lobby. The snowflake was punched out and I put glue on the ends and dipped them into coarse MS glitter. The inside features a skinny notepad.

The tag is Tag Sale #2, from PTI. The reindeer was stamped and then  cut from cork and colored with a red copic. The set is new from Hero Arts/Sizzix and features reindeers, snowflakes and trees. The dies are "open" which makes it very easy to stamp and then cut.
