Christmas in July - Planner/Organizer

Hi Peeps!  No it's not Christmas yet!  LOL!  I thought I would share this book again since I have nothing new to show you at the moment. LOL!  This book is about 3 inches thick!  Approximately 6x9".  I used chipboard covers and hinges to construct it.  In the picture below, I left the bead work incomplete so you could see the binding.  I just used various beads in colors that matched the paper collections.  The card stock on the covers is Bazill card stock.  I don't remember the color. All of the kraft card stock is from Stampin UP.  
The paper collections I used are My Minds Eye Snowed In.  My Minds Eye The Merry Days of Christmas. My Minds Eye Lost and Found Holly Jolly.  The divider tabs are scallop punches.  The stamping on the tabs is individual letter stamps from Just Rite Designs.  I did a search on their website and I don't believe they are available anymore.  The letters are so tiny I have to use tweezers to use them!  
 The tabs say; Traditions, Holiday Recipes, Breakfast, Recipes to Try, Treats, Pantry Inventory, Freezer Inventory, Menu, Crafts, Gift Lists, Gifts to Make, and Addresses. 
  In the picture below, you see envelopes.  They are coin envelopes that I covered with design paper.  The flaps have Basic Grey Magnets on them.  There are also clear protector sleeves scattered throughout the book for photos, or magazine clippings, or favorite recipes.
  The the paper collections I used are all single sided papers, I adhered two sheets back to back and then also included white printer paper for note taking and writing out addresses. 
I thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed a quick peek at my Christmas Planner!  Have an amazing day!
