A Vintage Christmas Organizer

Hello and Merry Christmas! Heather here with a Christmas organizer notebook. I love all things practical AND pretty. This notebook is the perfect blend of Vintage Christmas and Christmas planning. 

I started with a Moleskine. Luckily, I had one that was partially used, and needed to be re-purposed. A traveler's notebook would also work for this. I had to take a few pages out to allow for the fabulous Authentique papers, but it created a nicely sized notebook.
 I started by running a piece of Vintage Christmas Two through my Xyron 9" Creative Station. Once it completely covered the notebook, I trimmed off the edges with a craft knife. Then I die cut the December 25 with some dies from my stash, doubling the 2 and 5. 
 The inside cover was created with scraps and a Details sticker. a little faux stitching added a sweet touch to this page.
 I found a printable for a traveler's notebook calendar, and printed it out onto white paper. Then I cut it, and added some die cuts and Details stickers.
 By keeping everything on the flat side, I was able to still close the notebook, while having a lot of fun details.
A fussy-cut section of the Vintage Christmas Twelve paper will create a good backdrop for a Christmas Card list.
 Vintage Christmas Four and Six made for festive envelopes that will hold some important lists and receipts.
By layering the sticker from the Details sticker sheet, I was able to create a fun paperclip. 
 Four envelopes made with a punch board creates four spaces for lists, recipes, and other sorts of details.
 I loved the pairing of the red of Vintage Christmas Five with the fun diamonds of Vintage Christmas Ten.
Some white paper created spaces for shopping lists. I left off the details just in case a few of my family and friends are reading!
 I used Vintage Christmas One, Two and Three to create two pocketed pages. A couple of Details stickers added the perfect embellishment.
I hope this inspires you to create something beautiful for this holiday season. Life is too short to keep track of every important thing on plain notebook paper!
Supplies Used: Moleskine notebook, binder clip, dies, printable, envelope punch board, pen, Xyron Creative Station
