Planner ClosedThis is page one and two of the inside of the planner. The pockets measure 4.5" x 5" and there is a total of 4 pockets (receipts, cards sent, events and parties, gifts) On page one, I stamped the Hanging Christmas Ornaments stamp CG221 onto white cardstock (twice) with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Then I distressed it with broken china distress ink. On the second stamped image, I colored each orniment with individual distress inks and then cut each orniment out and paper pieced them to the panel. For page two I stamped the raindrop background stamp S5101 onto white cardstock with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The background of this panel was colored with a baby blue chalk ink. The stamp Joy F5246 was stamped onto white cardstock with Soft Pool ink and cut with a Spellbinder die.

For page three I stamped the four framed snowflakes CG209 onto white cardstock with baby blue chalk ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The word winter (Create Your Own CL368) was stamped onto white vellum and embossed with white embossing powder and then I glued it to the panels with glossy accents. On page four, I distressed the paper with bundled sage and forest moss distressing ink and then stamped the Classic Holly stamp CG229 using forest moss ink. I added red nailheads for the berries. The sentiment under the Holly comes from Holiday Sayings CL343.

Planner opened flat
The background paper that is behind each panel is from Stampin Up. The back of the planner is also covered with Stampin Up Paper. To hold the planner closed, I attached ribbon and tied it into a bow. The total measurements (when opened flat) is 8.5" x 20". Each panel is scored at 4.5" and folds up accordion style.
This was a fun project to make and I the time went by very fast while I worked on this. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Hope that everyone has a wonderful week.
