Christmas Planner and card

You know how you get a couple of weeks before Christmas then start realising just how close to the BIG day you are and how little you've actually done? well, I do that EVERY year! but, this year is going to be different!!

I have made this:-

I have used 2 6"x6" pieces of chipboard which were covered with Christmas papers left over from last year and some ribbon run along the spine. The main decoration is a fab piece from the New Christmas Collection from Tando - these baubles come in two sizes and this is the larger of the two. The baubles were painted with viva decor metallic paint and hi-lights added with a white pen - picket fence distress stickles and small crystals were used to create bling, the leaves were painted with inka gold and then outlines created using a brown pen.....inside I have several sections for presents, cards, food lists, invitations etc and by using the rings I can add extra sections or pages as necessary!

I have used the smaller version of the baubles to make this Christmas card - the bauble was painted with acryllic paint and hi-lighted using glossy accents picket fence distress stickles was used, as before, to add bling....the leaves were painted with inka gold and glossy accented!

TFL xx

That's lovely, the bauble chippie is excellent. I know I use my planner every year, so it's worth making something that will last.
