Good Morning - and Happy TGIF eve Ü

Good morning! I hope that the weather is treating you well, where ever you may be. This morning I woke up to some snow falling lightly. Then it stopped and the sun came out. Now it looks gloomy. So I don't know what will happen next.
I've been a little busy the past couple of days. I want to share with you what I've done. Remember those card trackers that I made up a while back? The ones with the months and you fill in the days? Well I finally made one for my SIL. Since she's been bit by the card making bug I thought that I'd make one for her.
She was on the phone the other day and mentioned someones birthday and she said "I better write that down" and I remembered that I wanted to make one of these for her and never got around to it ~ so I made the time.

The pages are 12" x 12" that you score at 4" turn the paper a 1/4 turn and score again at 6". You fold the 4" flap up and fold it in the middle at 6" and you've made your pocket. Really simple. You do this with 6 pieces of 12" x 12" paper and you have the pages of the book. Add a sheet of the printed monthly pages and it's good to use forever. I always write things in pencil so when I add or delete I don't have to use white out.

The stamps that I used for the inside pages were from TAC. They are from the Butterfly Swirls and Simply Devine sets. The paper used on the front of the organizer was from TAC's Amelia collection. I used various Primas, crystal brads, buttons & stickles to decorate it up with. I sure hope that she likes it.

Well - I'm off for today. I hope that I'll have time tomorrow morning to post ~ but Betty is stopping by early so I might not. But I'll be back, promise - with more to show you!

Have a great day!
Hugs,
Joani

I have had this on my list of things to make for soooo long now! Yours turned out beautifully! Maybe, just maybe, this is the inspiration I needed to get mine created too.

Thanks for sharing!

Joani this is fabulous! I made one or two back when you posted them before. I really like that you used plain cardstock and stamped the inner pages. Much better than looking for matching pp and trying to get it all different. I really need a bind it all! Thanks for sharing.
