As usual I started my spread by adding some strips of washi tape along the top and bottom of my pages and then chose some coordinating Christmas Trendy Page Dots to reinforce the holes and add an extra splash of colour.
An extra splash of colour with the Trendy Page Dots
These pages are my monthly overview so I'm only adding the most important reminders and events to them, I will be recording everything else like housework and my regular to do lists (or the boring bits!) in my weekly pages so this is really just to give me an idea of how my month is shaping up so far. I also wanted it to look fun and festive so I'd feel a little tingle of Xmas excitement whenever I check my planner!

I've recently moved into an A5 sized organiser so I had plenty of room to add some fun decoration to my pages using stamps from the Foodies, Drinks & More and Perfect Pairs sets, after all it's the season of cocoa and cookies with the odd glass of fizz thrown in as well!
As you can see I still have space left so I can jot down anything else I need to know or remember as it comes along and I am going to use my naughty and nice sections to keep track of the things I have to do (naughty) and the things I want to do (nice)!
On one of the pages I popped a Love Letter planner clip as it reminded me of writing letters to Father Christmas, something I still need to do with my youngest daughter this year. Fingers crossed there are no surprises on her list as Santa has already brought all her presents!
I absolutely love the APB Christmas stamps so I used lots of my favourite ones on this spread. Some are for reminders and others are just quotes to add to the festive feeling. There is a nice mix of practical and creative stamps in each set so you can use them for Christmas cards, crafts, memory keeping and planning. They are really versatile and all six sets are currently on sale so you can grab yourself a bargain!
