Everything Eleanor Life Organizer and Tutorial


As promised I have something special for you today.  This week is Preview Week for the New Catalog Edition over at Create with Connie and Mary and my preview project... a life organizer made using lots of fabulous products from the new catalog.  Every time I go to buy an organizer it doesn't have all the nifty features I would like for it to have.  So I decided to make my own with everything I thought should be in there using the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set.  It has all sorts of dividers, pockets (even a secret pocket) and pages.  The pages were all made by me as well (except the small yearly calendars).  There are pages for just about everything from weekly menus to an address book.  The best part is you can just print the pages as you need them.      




To download the FREE Life Organized Tutorial and Pages head on over to Create with Connie and Mary.  This week the lovely ladies are also offering their Early Bird Special...$24.95 (only through June 16).  That's five weeks or 30 projects for less than $1.00 a project.  You DO NOT want to miss out on this! The last two editions I have been part of have had the coolest projects.  They are exclusive projects so you won't see them anywhere else.  If you're a Stampin' Up Demonstrator these projects are fantastic to use in classes or workshops.  If you just love stamping, these projects make great gifts and are fun to make just for yourself. 

So if this isn't enough already...I'm also offering some Blog Candy today!!  Just leave me a comment on this post to be entered into a drawing for a free subscription to the New Catalog Edition.  Don't worry if you sign up and win the subscription, you can apply the credit to the next subscription or have a refund.       
I hope you will hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary right now download the free tutorial and sign up for this edition.  Have fun making your own organizer and have a fabulous Monday!  Take care.



Supplies:  listed over at Create with Connie and Mary.

Very nice, Carrie. I love to make albums like this one, and you have some great ideas. Thank you!

Debbie Flattum said...

This is an awesome project, Carrie. I love that you can customize it, too. You are right about other organizers...they just don't have everything you need & have many things you don't.
Thanks for sharing this idea and the chance to win a free subscription!

Carrie - You hit it out of the park!! Lovely to look at, and even better for daily living. Something about a Life Organizer connotes a "new beginning!" When I went through the PDF I was holding my breath to see if you put 2013 calendars in as well, (not putting it in is a mistake I've seen by others). You were orgnaized!!! Awesome.

Mary Beth Krakowski said...

Love receiving your posts. I get so many great ideas. Keep up the fantastic work
