Don't you just love when you see a fabulous project that you can't wait to create one for yourself? Me, too!! And that was the case on Friday when I saw Lisa Johnson's (Poppy Paperie) Christmas list project. I had some mini composition books on hand (got them from Walmart last year), so I knew this would be my project for my monthly get-together on Saturday.
Here's my take on Lisa's idea:
Inside front cover - I made the envelope to hold receipts.....now will I stick them in there?????:
Back inside cover - this is perfect for those weekly Michael's and JoAnn's coupons!!:
One of the tabs I added using half of a circle punch. My tabs included gifts, shopping, and cards:
I actually made two yesterday - even though the first one took me forever...I can't talk, listen, think, and craft at the same time! This one is going to my mom. She likes more traditional Christmas colors, so I know that I'll gently hear how the colors aren't really Christmasy - she'd prefer Real Red and Glorious Green rather than the Riding Hood Red and Olive Green that I used. Mine is black, cream, and Riding Hood Red using the damask stocking. I'll post a photo of it later :) For now, I need to finish reading The Lightning Thief - my students are beginning Greek Mythology Mania this week and I'd like to use this novel with them. It's a super cute book - think Harry Potter meets Greek Mythology....and the movie comes out in February (I think) in case you're like me and have to read the book before seeing the movie.
