Getting started on Christmas lists... (And Find The Freebie...)


My post for today is a last minute entry for Triple The Sketch, sketch 71. I have seen all kinds of ideas to get organized for Christmas, and I am determined to carry out my plans this year! I found this great site that has downloadable calendars and lists, The Grand Plan. I printed the sheets out, put them in a white 1" binder (super cheap in the back to school supplies right now). And of course I had to decorate it (can anyone say, high school flashback!). The base is Martha Stewart Golden Woodland cardstock pad, and I cut the scalloped circle and flourishes using SCAL. I added a vintage Santa freebie I found on the web, printed on watercolor paper and heat embossed the edges in gold. I added this cute Peppermint Digistamp from the April Collection at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, printed 3 times and colored with my Bic markers and white Uniball Signo pen. I attached it in layers with glue and pop-dots, and added the little 7Gypsies sticker and the title strips. Thanks for looking!

If you would like the svgs for the flourishes, click HERE and HERE . Now head on over to the other LSS designers' blogs,Lindsay decided to give away a bonus free digistamp this week!

  3. Thanks for the files and the inspiration. I fear that the scrapping part will overwhelm the Christmas organizing part, though!
