Simple Stories & Tombow: A Claus & Co. Planner

Hello! Today I'm sharing my version of the "Claus & Co." Planner 
 featuring many of the goodies from the
 SIMPLE STORIES
collection, as well as several of the great adhesive products from Tombow!
  Because the Holiday SN@P! Album is nice and large, it will work double-duty as
 a holiday planner and as a December-daily-style album...I cannot wait to fill it up! 
 To get a jump-start, I decided to have all of the cute pre-planned pages in place
 and then added a few embellishments that I'll share today.

To begin, I cut the "Oh Joy" (side B) paper down so that it covered the chipboard portion of the album front.  I used the Tombow Xtreme for attachment.  When you want something to really stay PUT, the Xtreme adhesive is what to reach for!

I wanted to create a fun 'bridge' between the fabric binding of the album and the patterned paper, so I used various sized circle dies to cut the motifs from the "I Believe" paper.  The circle sizes ranged from 1.5" to 2". 



After deciding placement for the circles and other embellishments, I used the 3D Foam Tabs, Multi and Aqua Mono Liquid Glue and Stamp Runner to adhere the different pieces.  The Mono Glue was perfect for adding the Wood Veneer pieces and small sequins (from my stash).

Here is a look at the completed album front:




As I said earlier, I did go ahead and add all of the inner workings to the album: the Claus & Co. SN@P! Journal Pages, Holiday Planning Inserts and the clear pocket pages that come with the album.  I mixed in some fun embellishments to some of the pages:




The introductory page to the album is the "Holiday Planner" tabbed page from the "Holiday Planning Inserts" packet.  I decorated it with some of the leftover circles that I didn't use on the cover.  Notice the two half-circles at the top and bottom...I just cut one of the 2" circles in half and glued it in place with the Stamp Runner!  The holly berry die-cuts were attached with 3D Foam Tabs.

Here I dressed up the banner insert page with one of the 4X4 Elements.  Again, I used the Mono Liquid Glue for attaching the sequins.




3D Foam Tabs were used when adding stickers and die-cut pieces.  I found the the Multi or Aqua Mono Liquid Glues worked best for the veneers.



The decorative insert pages are great places to add a splash of personality!  I tried to leave the pages, where a lot of writing would be done, without too much bulk so writing would be easier when the time came.

One last peek at the album cover.  I'm so in love with how this turned out...what fun!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
