hi everyone, now that we are deffinately into the christmas season, i hope everyone is having a joyful time. this new planner is late getting "out there" but i hope someone will still be able to use it to keep organized and frazzle free. i have it listed in my etsy shop here.
it's been created from 3 manilla envelopes, measures 6" X 9.5", has 13 decorated pages, 22 various sized pockets and a full december 2013 calendar; plus 3 built in, full sized page pockets.
christmas planner 2013 cover
there is 1 large pocket here printed from a vintage book cover image.
i like to keep these planners clean and simple without a lot of distractions that may get caught on things and torn off. there is room on the spine binder clips to hang a name/date tag or any little treasure that you may want to keep there.
my wish is for someone to use this journal and add all those things that will make this unique to them. each page is hand inked.
there are 2 pockets on page 1 and 2 pocket on page 2; one is a full page pocket with a scoop opening on top and a bottom pocket.
the flap on the left is easy open with the folding clasp but if you have ever used these, you will know repeated openings of these causes the metal to break. to fix them i have just used large paperclips to keep them shut. you could use ribbons and tie them together, or just leave them alone and they will most likely stay shut.
planner pages 3 and 4
there are 3 bottom pockets on page 3 (one is paper lace) with a large tag tucked in and 2 side pockets on page 4, one is a little die cut tag pocket with a little tag slipped in.
