Christmas Planner by Bea Valint

Hey everybody! It’s Bea here with you today sharing a DIY Christmas Planner idea with you. As Christmas approaches, it is important for me to prepare for the holiday in a well-organized, thoughtful way. We can save a lot of time and energy if we compile and think through the tasks in time, from Christmas cards to charity or the festive menu. This year I decided to write down my plans and tasks in a DIY planner.

The new Disk Power Punch tool by WRMK inspired me to create a discbound base for my planner. Iā€™m not exaggerating when I say that this tool is sure to be my big favorite. It easily punches through the hard cardstock cover or 10-12 sheets of paper at once.

The size of my planner is 12,5 x 22,5 cm. To create the cover, I used heavy cardstock sheet. I covered the edges of the cardstock with red acrylic paint, then I adhered patterned paper pieces to both sides using double sided tape. Fortunately, it was not a problem for my Disk Power Punch tool to cut through all those layers. Next, I trimmed down paper sheets to fill the planner with pages. It literally took minutes to bind together the inside pages. I used glittered disks from the Day-to-Day collection to hold together the pages.

Next I placed six pieces dividers between the pages. I created the dividers using patterned papers. I love the fact that I can add to my planner with the accessories from the Day-to-Day collection like the ruler or stencil.

I wanted to add labels to my planner and tried to find the easiest way to do that. I had the new Photo Corner Punch tool on my desk, and while I know it was originally invented to create photo corners, the shape it cuts out is perfect to use as a label as well. Win-win šŸ™‚

To be more organized, I added titles to my dividers such as Cards, Gifts, Decorate, Recipes, Budget/Charity, Bucket List etc. To create the titles, I used my Word Punch Board tool.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Planner walk through, and I could inspire you to create pretty and useful projects using your scrapbook supplies. Thanks for stopping by!
