I downloaded the page templates from Creativity Prompt and got cracking. I decided to make the pages smaller than those on the templates so adjusted the sizing at the printing stage. My finished page size is 13cm x 9cm so that the planner is small enough (and still easily read) to fit into a small bag and not be too bulky. The covers are made of chipboard and have been painted with Eco Green Pure Silver acrylic and then over painted with PVA glue and black acrylic paint to give the distressed effect. The die cuts on the front are by Tim Holtz and the chrome corner protectors from Artistic Stamper.
Instead of using the month tabs supplied in the kit I used Tim Holtz File Tab On the Edge Die. I bound the book with a Zutter Bind It All using a 3/4" wire. The pages were printed, double sided, on only 90gsm paper and this worked very well and reduced the bulkiness considerably. Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment - I appreciate your encouragement.
