Holiday Planner - Magnolia-licious

Hello, it's time for an inspiration challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!  So are you loving the Christmas line yet? I know I am!! They are soooooo cute!  I wasn't too impressed with the Winner Takes All collection at first, but some of those have really grown on me.  It's nice to see how others use them too.  I used Tilda with Gifts on this card. She is from a past collection, but I just LOVE her. She is so versatile. You can use her for Christmas or birthday.....showers...whatever. She is definitely a must have. You can find her in the Shop HERE

This weeks challenge is an inspiration challenge picked by the talented Pat Franks.

I purchased a 5x7 notebook from staples. They come 3 in a pack and are about a buck a piece. I then tore out a sheet of paper from the inside and used that to mark on my DP where I needed to punch my holes.  After I punched the holes I cut a slit up them so that I could just glue the page down onto the book and it would go through the spiral wire. I didn't have to bind the book or anything Much simpler. I then covered and decorated the outside to my liking.  I've made a few of these in the last couple of weeks. I added some tabs to the pages and I made a pen to go with it. If you buy the RSVP pens you can take a piece of paper and stick it in the tube to coordinate. I have also made beaded pens, those are always very pretty. These make great little office gifts. Of course you don't make them as a holiday planner. I did because I can add things like ppl that I need ot buy for and my holiday recipes, etc.

Hope you can join us at Magnolia-licous challenge blog. Please come check out the DT work by the other ladies.

Thanks for sharing...that little trick will save me TONS of time!! Hopefully I can get a little Holiday Planner done. I love the image you used too, she's my favorite!!
