What the...?  November?  This year has really gone by way too fast!!

I love the whole idea of being organized while shipping for holiday gifts.  The Season of Style This and That Journal and Designer Stickers were just the ticket.  In the organizer there are four pages for monthly planning.  I decided to have them all be December but have them each be a different year.  Then I got a little excited to think about next year I can look back and see what was planned for this year. I honestly can't remember what I did last December.  WHAAAA?!  Tell me I'm not the only one.  I'm not even sure what I did yesterday.

I used the Stickers and Journal as-is EXCEPT for the Window Sheet I added to the front cover.  I really liked the idea of letting things "float" on the front page without having to worry about trying to get stuff to stick to the cardboard cover.  You know what I'm saying?

It took a little time to uncoil the journal but once it was off, it was easy peasy.  I cut a window sheet to fit over the front cover and then I just aligned it when the front cover so I'd know where to punch the holes.  Then I put the coil back on.

And here's a shot of the back of the front cover. I put gold circles on each side of the window sheet so you wouldn't see the glue dots underneath. I didn't care to re-cut another reindeer.

I'm over it.
Are you?
Glad we're on the same page.

To get the uber cool reindeer, I stamped him (yes, it's a him) on scrap paper, cut him out, FLIPPED the image, traced him onto the back of the Glimmer Paper, and then cut out.  Perfect!  An e-cutter would be handy for this but since I STILL don't have one...

The only element I actually adhered to the catalog was the glimmer "arrow" thing.  I love how this organizer turned out!  I love how it looks like it has a lot of dimension when it really doesn't.
