Hi all! Today I thought I would share with you a look at some of my Planner decorations for December – specifically my planned out first week! I used the ridiculously adorable Snow & Cocoa collection by Crate Paper because I think it is just perfect to use for your planner decorating for December! Snow & Cocoa is such a great and versatile collection because it can be used no matter what holiday or holidays you are celebrating this December. It is a really fun winter-time collection that is perfect for the Holiday season but is not necessarily Christmas specific.
To decorate and plan my first week in December, I first wrote out all my plans in pen and then I started building up my two-page spread with some fun tags and stickers and things. I cut out one large tag from some of the pretty 6x6 tree paper in the collection and I used a smaller pre-made tag from the ephemera pack to layer on top of it. This tag is so super duper cute with the sweet little polar bear on it! I used one of the oh so amazing decorative paperclips from the collection to hold my tags in place. It says “brrr” and I think it works really well with my bear!
I used some really fun stickers like the little girl and the little boy with the cocoa in my planner because I think they just bring a lot of whimsy to my planner pages without feeling out of place. I sometimes find stickers like these that are cartoony in style to be difficult to use for certain scrapbooking/papercrafting projects. However, for a planner, this kind of a sticker is perfect and so fun to use!
I added some little stickers in diamond and circle and snowflake like shapes to signify snow falling on my pages. This is a simple way to add a little bit more movement and flair to your planner pages. You get the feeling that snow is actually falling and it just re-iterates the theme of this decorated week spread which for me is how much I wish I could get snow this month. I know it wont happen since I live in Sunny Southern California...but hey, I can wish right? I actually wrote “dreaming of a white Christmas...in So Cal?!” in the top right corner of my spread to add a little humor to my planner pages.
I really had fun playing with the fabulous Snow & Cocoa collection in my planner pages for December. I hope I have inspired you to do the same as you decorate your upcoming plans for the next week and month! Happy Holiday Season!!!
