Magnolia Christmas Planner



I saw a tutorial on how to make a Christmas Planner on Paper Crafters Planet. You can view the video here. I have to add that I watched it and then made it a few days later with a slightly different folder. So I didn't really follow the exact instructions but the folder turned out pretty similar! I made the lists with Word. Printed them and adhered them to some card stock to make sure they would be sturdy enough. I have the lists on both sides of the cardstock because I know I am going to fill them all in!

I think it will help me keep track of the comings and goings in our house as well as everything that I need to do during the Festive season. It has the added bonus of having all my new Christmas Magnolia stampson it! The only thing I forgot to take a picture of is a little calender (the same as I used here) that I slipped into the "Special Dates" pouch. I took loads of pictures so bear with me!





  • Stamps: Magnolia Christmas & Winter 2008 Collection
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU! Alpine, Folder from Staples
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Su! Red Riding Hood Ribbon

      Would you happen to know the copic colors you used. I love the colors rather than the traditional red/green for christmas.
