Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s September 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stamps and Dies. If you arrived here from the talented Keeway Tsao blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!
Take a look at my holiday planner notebook:
For this holiday planner notebook, I used Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection patterned paper, the new Altenew Blessing Stamp Set and the Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set.
Here’s how I created this notebook:
Place the chipboard on top of the pattern paper, use a number 15 Penblade to cut the patterned paper.
Once the front is done, do the same for the back cover.
Now use the We R Memory Keepers Cinch to put the book together.
Now, stamp each kraft pocket with a different sentiment.
To finish the notebook off, add some tabs so that you know which section of the notebook is which!
You can tuck all of your coupons and receipts into the pockets of the notebook. Everything in one place.
I kept this notebook clean and simple. It allows the recipient to decorate it they way they want.
Let’s take another look:

I really like how you put that book together. It was amazing. I have an old UGA notebook that I use every year for everything. I really am thinking about doing what you did. Thanks!!
This is such a great idea. I usually just use my address book to mark who I send cards to each year, and it’s turned my book into a mess, LOL. I’m definitely going to try this. Thank you.
What a beautiful idea! I can see you going through your holidays, reading the encouragements you stamped on the pockets. Wonderful!
This is another wonderful release from Altenew with great variety, but I really love those Bountiful Branches and the Blessings stamp set. Clever project!
Those simple little touches added so much to your planner. It looks fantastic!
Oh my goodness Kymona! I was thrilled to see your name on the list of blog participants! Your artwork and creativeness never disappoints! I love your out of the box creative use of the newly released stamp sets! Yay! You’ve totally made my heart happy!

Your planner is wonderful. I need to make one — my organizational skills are a bit lacking.
A planner notebook is beyond my abilities, but I think your design ideas will look good on cards, too!
