ClubScrap November Artist Challenge

Club Scrap Artist Challenge

This month's challenge is all about holiday projects. With Christmas only weeks away, we were given some past stamp sets including Homemade Holiday UM stamp sheet and the I'll Be Gnome for Christmas UM stamp sheet to create some goodies for you all!!

As I was sitting at my desk contemplating what to make - I noticed my stack of manila folders leftover from doing the ALSB at retreat this year and decided to make a Christmas planner using a folder.  This way I can keep my shopping lists for gifts, stocking stuffers, meals, holiday decorations, etc.  I can keep a list of meals ideas for the holidays.  I can print out a calendar for one tag.  I can keep a list for who to send Christmas cards to and who I receive cards from...Keep todo lists, track budgets, etc.

Manila Folder
Cardstock (Moroccan kit)

1.  Take manila folder and re-fold exactly in half.  Then fold each side in half.  Then fold from the bottom up the bottom 1/3rd as shown:
2.  Ink edges.
3.  Cut panels in red, green, brown to fill all the spots on the planner.
4.  Use liquid glue and adhere the bottom flap  to the top at just the fold lines:
5. Rubberstamp images on to front lower panels as shown:
6.  Cut panels for back side of planner and rubberstamp:
7.  Punch holes in sides and use snowflake eyelets and ribbon to finish off the sides of the planner.
8. Cut panels to fit into pockets and add tag toppers.
9.  Cut a 1 inch strip and create a band to hold the whole package together.
10. Embellish band.

The majority of the materials used in this project are from ClubScrap. TFL DebDuzScrappin
