Sharing From the Heart Blog Hop

Welcome to our November Sharing From the Heart blog Hop. If you have come from Heather's Creative Coconut you are on the right path. Besides the SOTM, we are sharing Thanksgiving and Christmas ideas
My project for this month's hop is a mini pocket planner using the November Stamp of the Month "Cherish the Day."  Every year I make a calender project for my Christmas gifts. This year I'm making these pocket planners. With our new Cricut  Art Philosophy cartridge this project will be quick and easy to make.

Pocket Planner
Inside has a pocket for every two months. The first pocket holds the planning card for January and February
On each side of the pocket is the monthly calendar.
Each pocket hold the planner card with a month on each side. The planner card slides into the pocket.

Thank you for hopping with us. See you next month. Now it time to hop over to Kathleen's Bowl of Stamps for some amazing inspiration.

Directions: Cut out six envelopes from page 29 of the cricut booklet. I used 4" envelopes but you can adjust the size for your needs. Cut 12 tickets for the Stamp of the month tickets for each page.  Fold envelopes, cut off the top flap, and secure together using Bonding Memories Glue. Add scraps of BTP to each side of the envelope as desired leaving the top open to insert the planner card.  Attach your calendar and embellishments to each side of the envelopes. To make the front and back cut a piece of cardstock 4X8 and fold in half. Secure the folded piece together with bonding memories glue. Decorate and embellish as desired. If you don't have a Bind-It-All you can put your planner together with 3 loose-leaf rings.  Click on Picture tutorial to view tutorial.

This is a fabulous idea. I have been trying to come up with a year of cards planner/holder book and this may be my inspiration.
Love the Roxie papers with this and they haven't been my fave so far so this really inspires me to get some.
