Christmas Pocket Planner

I am a planner and an organizer so I have been wanting to make one of these pocket planners for AGES!  It really wasn't hard, but just finding time to do it geesh!

I kept it pretty plain since I feel it will be handled a lot and I wouldn't want to be fiddling with flowers and such when I am using it, so super plain was the name of the game! haha!

You can see it is made from a simple file folder and there are 4 pockets for different things.

I made my own little cards, but you can find templates online very easily. 

I used the Intense pencils again and still LOVE them!!! I used the light grey Stazon to stamp with for a sorta "no line" look.  I am please as punch! I think this may be one of my favorite Tildas.  She is waaaay cute in my book!

Maybe you will make a little planner yourself? It really was pretty easy and I do believe I really will use it YAY!!!!

Thank you so much for all your support!  Have a very special day!

Big hugs to you all!



  1. OMG, Dena, this little girl is breathtaking...colored to perfection! She is also one of my fave Christmas images. Your project is it! This would also make a lovely gift.
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Love this planner idea and this Tilda is a real cutie for sure. I checked to see if you had a tutorial on how to make it but didn't see one. I'd love to know how you made it. hugs, Ruth Ann

  3. Dena this is a fabulous creation. Would also love to know how that is done, maybe it would help organize me !!! This Tilda is one of my favorites too & love how you've colored her.
    Hugs, Janie

I love the snowflake die (just bought that one, whew) and love the whole concept. I love little Tilda. Ok I am really going to have to invest in those Inktense Pencils! Thank-you so much for the inspiration!
    Have a great weekend!

Yours is just perfect!!!! Thank you, also, for the information on the Inktense pencils!! And for the sweet comment you left!

  9. I love this Dena. Tilda is gorgeous and I love the design. I could really do with one of these as I am so unorganised. I drive my husband nuts!!!

  11. This is cool, Dena. What a good idea. I should make something like this too to help me organize. It's gorgeous. Love the traditional Xmas colours. Adorable Tilda. Fabulous colouring with those Inktense pencils--sigh, another new thing to try.

  12. What a good idea. Have fun filling it.

  13. GREAT IDEA Dena!!!! And so very PRETTY to boot!! I just love it!! I really need to open that Inktense box!

  14. Wow Dena,this is a beautiful creation for Christmas and your coloring with the pencils, still amazing!

    Hugs Thea

  15. Ooh I love this Dena & what a fab idea :o)

  16. Awesome!!!
    What a fabulous idea, I think everyone could make good use of a pocket planner, I know that these days if I don't have it written down then it won't get done!

    I've not seen this Tilda until now, she's a real cutie and your colouring is amazing - no change there then! (Rusty nail still springs to mind)
    I went in the wardrobe and dug out the Inktense pencils...then shoved them back in the cupboard again, I just can't get the hang of them at all.

    Big hugs to you
    Love Elaine xxx

  17. I really love your blog, and this little planner really caught my eye. I hope you don't mind but I've case'd it in my post today.

    Mine is nowhere near as nice as yours, and I missed off the tab part too, but it was a bit of a trial and error creation.

    I did give you credit on my post, but if you want to pop over to see it, then I'd be delighted.

    Thanks so much for your inspiration Dena.

  18. Dena, that is utterly fabulous! I love your Christmas planner!! I so need to make one for myself. I so forget these days, who I've sent what to and when with birthdays and Christmas. An inspired idea. Really love it! Hugs, Wends xxx
