Sugarplum Collection: Fauxdori Traveler's Notebook by Kathy

 Hi Everyone!  It's Kathy today with a fun Sugarplums project that will help you get organized for the upcoming holidays!!  I created a traveler's notebook, also called a Fauxdori with inserts and printables to organize all of my holiday activities!  Take a peek...


I started with some Doodlebug Fabrics from the Santa Express collection and created my cover following the instructions in this great video by Doodlebug DT Coordinator Lori Allred on her Inspired by Pinterest Show on My Craft Channel.  The cover uses elastics to hold little notebooks you can mix and match!  The Christmas tree charm on my notebook was created by laminating a tree from the Sugarplums Diecuts Craft Kit, cutting it out and adding some sequins.


Inside, my fauxdori has 4 little notebooks.  Each of the covers were made using papers and stickers from the Sugarplums collection... take a peek ...






Inside each notebook cover, are printables to help organize everything!  I started with a calendar for November, December and January... because you know the holidays start early and continue long after some years! I love the little reindeer sticker on the Icon Sheet...too cute, and I used some of the new Polka Dot Washi to mark out some dates in my calendar!


My next notebook cover contains a Santa's to do list... just some blank pages to write down all the things that you need to remember...gift ideas, errands, party lists... I thought the All I want for Christmas sticker from the This and That sheet was perfect for this!

Every year, I make cookies for friends and neighbors, so I thought it would be good to have a recipes notebook.  There's a little spot to add a picture (perfect size for an Instax photo!) and plenty of room to write out ingredients and instructions.  Of course I needed to use the gingerbread boy & girl from the Diecuts Craft Kit!

My last notebook has an insert to keep track of my Christmas Card list.  I make and send about 100 cards a year, so this is important to keep up to date! 

 
Just a peek inside my notebooks... each of the covers have little pockets for me to keep extra items such as receipts or loose notes.  The covers were created using a Silhouette file that I altered to fit the size of my inserts.

And what planner would be complete with out some little clip bookmarks??  I created these by super gluing a few of the Sugarplums Sprinkles Shapes to some Doodlebug Mini Clothespins.  They're perfect for keeping my place!  And they're too cute!

Now for the fun part!  I'd love to share the printables I created with you!  Even more fun, is the colors perfectly match the Sugarplums collection so you can create your own fauxdori notebook!  You can download the printables for free on my blog here.  I hope you enjoy them!  That's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by!

  27. I love your set up! I need to start putting my Christmas book together, I'm just trying to make it through Halloween first. Haha. I was thinking that I need to put my favorite christmas recipes in a separate book, as well as keep track of my xmas card list. Thanks for sharing!

    Love, Jenn
