Giveaway :: 2012 Planner | handmade by The Creative Place

Per my post earlier this morning, I decided to go for it and put together a quick and simple planner for 2012. After seeing a lot of inspiration (thanks so much for the comments and links!), I came up with this planner, and made 2.

Each month includes a calendar of the entire month, and then a space for each day throughout the month. Several notes pages are sprinkled in as well. All printed pages are printed on 30% post-consumer recycled paper. Also sprinkled in are various extra pages, including ledger pages, graph paper, and other office-y type papers, because nothing is complete without some extra fun pages :) 

A lot of my motivation to make the planner came after having this idea for the cover -- 1" paper squares punched from various papers -- new and vintage, adhered to kraft cardstock :) I knew what I wanted the cover to be, just needed to have a book for it to be a cover to ;)

Please note that as I stated in my earlier post, this planner is not perfect (the o-wire binding is a little kinked, some of the pages are punched really close to the edge - but none are falling out of the planner ;), little things like that). This was my first one I have ever put together and the first time I've ever bound something with my new Bind-It-All. It is still fully functional and I am comfortable giving it away. I wouldn't sell them in my shop until all of the kinks are worked out, but since it's a giveaway, it's free, so I think it's ok :).
