Santa's Gift Planner

Stamps: Doodle Palace (Santa and Rudolph); Patterned Paper: Basic Grey (Figgy Pudding); Cardstock: Stampin' Up (Always Artichoke), Georgia Pacific (white 110), unknown source (textured red, linen black). Markers: Copics; Ribbon: Stampin' Up (Spring Moss grosgrain); Gems: Hero Arts; Die Cuts: Spellbinders (Oval Nestabilities); Paper Punch: Creative Memories (corner rounder); Other: Stampendous (white flocking), Inkessentials (Glossy Accents), Easy Touch (pen).

Merry Christmas! By now, most of us have already celebrated Christmas with family and friends, leaving only happy memories and mounds of wrapping paper to be recycled . Time to relax, right? Definitely, but also time to start thinking about how to make the next holiday gift giving season easier. My plan is to carry this mini gift planner with me, making notes and keeping lists to keep me more organized from the after Christmas sales through next year's Black Friday!

This altered mini comp notebook design is inspired by Lisa Johnson's Christmas' List tutorial.

Rudolph has some Glossy Accents to make his nose shine, while Santa is flocked out for touchable texture:

This is my last project from the final SheetLoads' issue. Be sure to download your free December issue and check out the archives for other great inspiration. I'll miss you, SheetLoads!

Wishing everyone a merry finish to their Christmas day!
