Christmas Town Tags and Planner Pocket Storage| with Anabelle

December is one of those times of the year when gift giving is frequent! There have been many times when I've needed a quick gift and a card to go with it. So, I decided to create some little gift tags to keep on hand for just those times. And what better place to store them than in my December Planner. I created several tags and a pocket insert to hold them. I placed it into my Daily Doodle and now I'm ready to give them out at a moment's notice.
To create the pocket, I took a piece of patterned paper and cut it to 8 1/4 by 10 3/4 inches. Then I scored the bottom two inches to create the fold up flap. 

I added a strip of washi to finish off the edge and scored it down the center edge. I stitched the sides to seal off the pocket. Now it was ready to be placed into my notebook.
Now, I was ready to create my tags. I used my 6 by 6 papers for this. I like using small prints, or monochromatic colors for the tags so I can layer on top of them.
Each tag was decorated with the Die Cuts, some stickers and gems.

I love this little guy carrying the tree. I added some stickers and a gem pom pom on his hat!

This one uses one of the large stickers from the 12 by 12 sticker sheet. I love the little mice die cuts and thought they would look cute with it.
On this last tag, I created a little scene using a Doodlepop, some stickers and a Chit Chat. I love that adorable snowman. 
The tags look so sweet in their pocket home in my Daily Doodle. I almost don't want to give them away!
As you can see, these little tags will look great with any gift. Whether they are on a wrapped box, attached to a gift bag or tied to a bottle of wine, they are bound to steal the recipient's heart.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy Creating!

Christmas Town Planner Pages | with Jennie

It's almost Christmas and we're all pretty excited. Except, there's stuff to do, am I right? There are gifts to buy, there are lists to make and there are cookies to bake. So, how do we keep track of that? This year, I've started a brand new hardbound notebook to keep track of all that is going on and everything I need to keep track of this season! Obviously, I needed the help of Doodlebug's Christmas Town collection! It's so cute and motivates me all season long.

One of the things I need to track is the stocking stuffers!  They seem simple but they multiply if you're not careful. So, a page devoted to them is easy - especially with Abigail Alphabet Stickers and washi tape.
Now, gifts?  I usually use a few pages to jot down ideas.  I've got those.  But, once I've finalized the ideas - I need to have a page to add those gifts and who they come from.  The easiest way for me is to do so with a blank page but I like to add a little bit of decoration, too.  So, I did the same thing as I did before with the Abigail Alphabets and the washi tape.  Simple yet oh so festive!

This notebook, heavy on both cute and function, is going to keep me going all month long.  It'll make the season even more festive thanks to the organization and wonderful Christmas Town collection!

What I Love about Christmas

December is just a super busy month for me and I'm sure for everyone as well. As much as I would love to do and create a December Daily entry, I don't think it's possible for me with this busy holiday season. I truly have been wanting to try it, then again I say that every year.

So for everyone who's busy as much as I am, I want to share with you my simple and short cut take on December Daily. I thought why not do "What I Love about Christmas" and make it into a daily journal entry. It's simple and super easy.

First thing I thought when creating this layout was that I wanted to use my washi tapes. I started playing around with the washi and decided to add the snow washi all around the border. Then I just added the tree washi on top and the houses washi on the bottom. 
"You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen and Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer."

I saved the strip from one of the 12x12 paper with all the reindeer names when I was creating my last project and I knew I wanted to use it somehow in the future. I had to figure out how to use it. Then I remembered  I bought a roll of reindeer stickers when I visited DB Headquarter in August, so it's perfect to use the reindeer names with the stickers.
I originally plan to use the number cutouts from the 12x12 paper for my December Daily, so I decided to use the small version from the 6x6 paper pad for my journal entry.

What I love about Christmas No. 5,6,7,8,9 and 10. I can't wait to list more.

There you have it. My simple take on "December Daily" that I'm confident that I can complete. Thank you for stopping by and I hope I was able to inspire you.
