c4e june kit project

When I saw the C4E June kit I immediately thought it was perfect for this Family planner that I had been thinking of doing. You can still get the June kit, Home Bird HERE.
The planner basically consists of 2 single layouts, a back cover and a lot of printed planner sheets, all bound together with a BIA. I used a Microsoft works spreadsheet to create a weekly planning sheet that suited out family.
Extra materials needed in addition to the kit are: 12x12 chipboard sheets, white cardstock, sewing threads, beads, pegs and BIA wire.

I have used the same 4 photographs on both the outside cover and the inside LO. The title was printed, then pierced holes and sewed using back stitch. Using the Bracket shaped paper in the kit I made a template to use on the front cover so they would match. I have sewn around the edge of the bracket shape using zig-zag stitch (by hand!).

Inside the planner is the second LO which will be on display. I have hand stitched (back stitch) around the edge of the bracket PP and the tree design, adding the occasional bead in.

I printed about 50 weekly planner sheets to include. I am hoping that when they run out I will be able to open the wires and add some more!

At the bottom I added 2 pegs with diecut shapes on, to hold little notes and letters. They are attached with superglue so should stay put!! lol

The final result is a unique family planner, made to suit our family needs!! It's kind of tucked away by a cupboard, but that is where my "command centre" is in the kitchen!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
