Here's what I've been doing....

I told you that I was working on something but it was not yet complete. Well, I've completed it!

One of my fellow TAC angels, Vicki ~ had posted this on her blog and when I mentioned to Betty to take a look this is what she wanted to do next time we came over - so here it is. It is a Christmas planner.

Now, my dimensions are a little off of what Vicki did. Betty and I sat there trying to get it to work out right but it didn't. The one I'm working on my for SIL is actually nicer ~ I should show that one to you tomorrow. But that's fine ~ the first of something hardly ever turns out for me. It was my "experimental" one Ü

All you use is a plain file folder. And talk about recycle - I had bills in this one dating back to 1997!! It was time to do some shredding!! This is the front view of the folder with it closed.

This is the view of the folders back side, open.And here is the folder open, showing the inside. For Vicki's directions you can go here. But I basically took the folder and opened it up. I then scored 8" from the top to fold up to make the "pocket". Then each side I scored at 4 1/4" out from the middle of the file folder. The one that I will show you tomorrow is made of the pieces of light weight cardboard. Kinda like the ones you get in a new pack of paper. Hubby brought them home from work - and I just cut it down to a 16" x 16" piece and scored it like the above directions I just gave and it was perfect. With the file folder you have the tabs to contend with ~ They are cute, but the one you'll see tomorrow does not have the tab.As far as the little sheets of paper inside, I printed them off from a site called Organized Christmas. They have lots of little planner helpers there. I'm kinda a list person and if you are to this site is a must!

Now this is not all I've been working on. I had to make a card for a swap I'm in, and I'm afraid that I pushed it to the last minute. I needed to make a double slider card and I thought that a Christmas theme might be cute. Besides, I just got a cute little snowman set that you see on the planner! I had to use it again!!!

This card I made using Lavender Lace, Eggplant Envy & Pale Plum. I stamped the image from my TAC set In The Snow. I was fortunate enough of had the snowflake paper that I ran thru Betty's cuttlebug. I sponged some ink over it to keep with the purple theme. These double slider cards really are very easy to make ~ and I think that I may use this to make some more cards for Christmas.

Well see, I told you that I had some things to show you today. I hope that you like them. I'll be back tomorrow with more!
Have a great day!!!
