Get Organized for 2011

I want to show you what I did with a $1 notebook from Michaels. I thought it might be the answer to staying organized during Christmas (too late for this year...lol). The tabs are ready to be labeled...maybe gift ideas, card list, recipes. What are your thoughts for the tabs? This was not difficult to alter and was a fun project.

I used Tilda with Fir from Magnolia-licious.

Recipe:
Tilda with Fir stamp
Papertrey Ink cardstock
Memento black ink
Copic markers
Bazzill cardstock
K&Co. paper
My Mind's Eye paper
American Craft ribbon
Dress It Up snowfall buttons
jingle bells from stash
Quickutz tab
SU tab punch
Stickles
Glossy Accents
Martha Stewart ink

I am entering this in the Paper Cubed December challenge. Maybe I should make a run to Michaels and get a handful of these $1 notebooks!!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a Merry Christmas! Linda C

Oh this is beautiful - love it - the tabs could be different lists - food, gifts, Xmas cards, to do etc... but in any case it's lovely. Thanks for taking time to play along with JUGS this week. May your holidays be filled with blessings, love, laughter, hugs and smiles.

It's beautiful Linda! Love the colors and the snowflakes on the front. What a great idea to section the book and leave the labels blank for your friend to fill.
Merry Christmas
