Card and 2015 Diary

A post tonight to share what I have been making this week.

First a simple card I made as a sample for the Scrapbooking/Card Making class I run each Saturday at Camelot Studios here in Adelaide.

I have cut some strips of 2 patterned papers, put them through my Big Shot with 2 different embossing folders then inked lightly over the top to highlight the embossed pattern. A strip of plain co-ordinting paper across the card topped with a ticket I have cut on the Big Shot using the Die-Namics "Just The Ticket" die and foam tape. I printed the sentiment on my computer and added it to the ticket. A bit of faux stitching to finish off.

I have spent a bit of time working on making a planner. I have finished the actual construction now I get to decorate it. It is A5 size.

I have bound it using my Cinch and a white spiral binding wire. It has a white "leatherette" heavy cardstock back and front cover with a clear cover over the top of them both. I am not that keen on the way the spiral binding wire has the pages uneven when the book is open so I am going to try to buy some 2" binding wires to replace it. The planner is quite thick, about 3cm so is not as portable as I had first thought I would like. I might take some of the note paper out when I re-bind it as there are 100 note page in there....don't think I will make that many notes

I have created a week to an opening calendar which has room for notes at the end of each week so I can write down my "To Do" list or things I might forget. Each month has a divider at the beginning of it that I am going to decorate and add pockets to keep "things" in.
I need to decide how I am going to date the days, either stamp or just hand write and also not sure about the month tabs, may see if I can buy some already printed. The ones that are currently in there I have punched using the McGill Tab punch and written the months.

After the calendar there are 4 sections of lined paper for things like Notes, Scrapbooking ideas, Tickets for functions that I have to organise and holiday ideas for our trip to New Zealand later this year. They will have tabs too but I ran out of the white card I was using to make them. Each of these sections have a zip lock coloured plastic pocket at the beginning of it for any bits and pieces that I want to keep handy.

So as you can see there is still lots of work to do but that is the idea isn't it........

Till next time
Thanks for dropping by
