Wow Jan I am really inspired. This is awesome!! Amazing job as always.

Rose Ann isn't that the coolest? I love it, Jan!


This project is totally awesome! I can't wait to make one (or several!!) Thanks for sharing as always!!


I'm so glad you love the planner. My friend and upline Dena came up with the planner design after a project they did on the SU cruise. Here's her blog link to check out I love your Christmas planner idea and will be trying one myself. I found white folders at Staples for a nickle a piece...what a bargain!!! This project would also make a great wedding, baby, teacher, or 'high school senior headed to college' planner.
Thanks again for the shout-out. I love your blog. It's so inspiring and hysterical all at the same time. :)

Ann M. Clemmer

Yes, we do love you Jan! You are da bomb!


Beautiful work and fun idea! Thanks for the great tutorial!

Kathi S.

WOW!!! You have outdone yourself. This is so beautiful, wonderful, crafty, awesome and terrific. Can I come over to recreate this? All I would have to get is the scrappin kit, bind it all machine, craft knife, and Jr. legal pads. I have a bunch of folders. opps, all of mine have the things with prongs for paper.

I think you have a class on this. We could prepay for the supplies.


Holy Smolly how adorable is this !!!! WOWZA !!


Soooooo... darn cute! Sending lots of love your way!
Thanks Jan!

Lee Conrey

Another great idea!!! It's fabulous, just fabulous!
.....and of course we DO love you!


Yes I truly love you -- you are the best.

What a FANTASTIC idea -- love it


I love your Christmas Organizer! I just made my 1st folder/organizer this week, too--it's to leave with the babysitter and has all the info she would ever need.

Also, THANK YOU for pointing me to!! This is going to help me SO much this year--it's AWESOME!

Once again Jan, you are awesome! Thanks so much for sharing. I believe I will have to CASE your idea, and have a class over here in Western WI. THANK YOU.


GOJUS!! Love it, love it, love it! I can't wait to CASE this one.

Jenn D

This is wonderful! I had a chance to make a folder like this at CHA, but haven't had a chance to make a SU one yet. I love the Christmas Organizer Idea.


This a fabulous! I wonder if it would actually help me get organized? Yeah...probably not! I also wanted to thank you for the trip down memory lane back into the 80's with your reference to a well known song that will be taunting me all day! LOL!!!


Simply wonderful!!! You as always are an inspiration. Thank you for all of the detail that you have given.


So creative, so clever, so amazing, so beautiful! Jan, you always have the best ideas and I really appreciate how you are so generous in sharing them with us!!!

Michelle Wallace

Very beautiful! I'm sitting here trying to decide if I could get anyone to a class to make something like these! ;)

If you're doing a class on these, I would recommend taking your stack of notepads to office max & having them chop them in half. They SHOULD be able to do quite a few at a time, if not all at once depending on how many, but of course we know how that goes sometimes. ;) Just a thought if you need to cut alot of them in half! Good luck with the class!


You are the best!! Now I know I need a Bind It All!

christina fischer

This is fantastic!!!! Thank you so much for all the details -- it is such a great project!

Cyndi Bundy

OMG! I want to come to your class, this is sooo stinkin' cute! Too bad you live so far away, I'll have to create my own, sniff. Thanks for the awesome directions and photos, as always your blog ROCKS!

Jana Emmert

Awesome, Jan! (As always) How far away from Duluth are you anyway? Maybe I need to sign up for a class.

Heather P.

Oh my goodness, you've been BUSY! These are INCREDIBLE!

Mary Jo Price-Williamsm

Jan this is great! Perfect choices on what to put in the pockets. I especially love the size and favorites pages. Beautiful work.


Jan..this is way too cute! I do have a question for you. I am not always the most computer literate, but here it goes...How do you print the calendar pages smaller than a full sheet size? Like the ones you did to make a small notebook. Thanks for all your help!


This is the best thing I have ever seen, totally! Thank you so much for your time in posting this for us. You rock!

Alexandra Hobson

wowzers!! that is an amazing idea - I am thinking you are sooo right and it makes for an AWESOME class....gotta go now and start plannin - you amaze me girl!



Guess what? Your organizer was featured in Organized Christmas They really loved it just like we do!!


Awesome folder! I would love to come to your class? Where are you located???


Thank you for sharing this. I just found this through and love the idea. I think I may case it myself for a stamp class sometime this year. What a great Christmas in July project to get everyone ready before the big season hits :0) TFS


The only thing I don't understand regarding this Christmas notebook is how you were able to get the organized Christmas calendar pages small enough to fit? Is there a way to reduce the sizes from the website?
