Everyone Needs a Christmas Planner

Hello Stamping Friends,
Do you have that one place where you can keep all your Christmas planning information?  If not, then you need one of these Christmas planners.  Or you need to make several to give as gifts this Holiday Season.  They are so easy to create that you can even personalize them by making them each a little different to suit the recipient perfectly.
This is one of the quick and easy Christmas gifts we made at my class earlier this month.  How do you make it you ask?  Very easily, it's just a black and white marble composition notebook covered and some tabs added.  See told you it was easy.  I used this year's Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper as my starting point to pick colors and layout.  I covered the notebook first with solid colored cardstock and then layered with designer paper. You definitely need to use sticky strip to hold it together. I think that's the part everyone hated at the class.  You can embellish the front any way you would like.
For the tabs you count every 25 pages (this notebook had 100 pages), put a piece of cardstock (cut to size) on the front sheet of the set of 25 pages, then punch a decroative label punch in coordinating cardstock. Fold it in half and attach to the page. I used the small oval punch to add more dimension to the tag. Here's some ideas for each section: recipes, family traditions, gifts, christmas card list (sent and received).
