Thought I’d at least upload a quarterly project! Here’s something that I think you’ll enjoy. It’s a combination of cards and a 3D item. Oh, and a picture of the birthday boy. Of course this was in February, but… what the heck! Enjoy!
After a few days of pondering what should actually go into my organizer, I’ve finally come up with what I think is the perfect year-round organizer for my gift giving. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those Christmas organizers that I’ve seen lately, but I wanted an organizer that could be used throughout the year. I’m thinking of giving these to my kids teachers for Christmas. So, here’s what’s in my pockets:
- a perpetual calendar
- thank you cards and envelopes
- a gift guide for ten people
- a small 2007-2009 calendar with four months on each page and
- an envelope for gift receipts
If you click on the links above, they should take you to a PDF file for each of the documents I created.
To make the organizer, I followed two tutorials and then combined them both to personalize my own and make it useful for my own purposes. Here are links for the samples that I used as my inspiration: Blue Moon Stamping, Stamps, Paper, Scissors. My spirals for my gift guide are quite large. I only had the 5/8″ binding coils for the Bind-it-All. I think the guide would look much better if it were bound with the 1/4″ coils. Just one more thing that I need to order. If you have a chance to get one of these little beauties, GET IT! I love mine! It cuts through chipboard, CDs, metal, and lots of other stuff.
My supplies included:
- Stamps: Amazing to Zany, Bold Alphabet (retired), Flowers & Flourish
- Cardstock: Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, and Linen Prints background paper
- Ink: Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Cameo Coral, Apricot Appeal
- Accessories: Rose and Chocolate 1/4″ grosgrain, Old Olive 5/8″ grosgrain, Scallop circle and 1 3/8″ circle punch, white 2-pocket file folder, Large Open-end envelope, Small Open-end envelopes, Bind-it-All.
Thanks so much for looking! If you have any questions, please be sure to let me know!
