Holiday Planner

It is great to see so many of the mini notebooks popping up on blogs as people are receiving their PTI orders. My mom is a teacher and is always looking for little gifty things - and I think these are perfect. I started with a holiday notebook, pulling my colors from a sheet of patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly Collection.

The strip of Vintage Cream cardstock is stamped with Background Basics: Text Style II in Chamomile Tea Dye ink. I added some holly accents (both images from Believe) to the upper corner and the label and colored them with my Copic markers and Spica glitter pens.

Nothing too fancy here, just something classy and functional to make it through the busy holiday season! These were easy and fun. I love creating projects with a unique size, it is a fun change of pace and a great way to jumpstart mojo. There are more of these notebooks in my future!

Have a great night - thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit!
