I got the inspiration for the day planner here. It took me awhile to find a book that I liked and felt comfortable taking apart. When you remove the cover save the pages and you can use them for stamping, paper crafting and even Christmas ornaments. I don't have a cropadile but that would have made this project a lot easier, still though it was fun.
While I was at it, I needed a birthday calendar to sit on my desk. I have it sitting on an easel next to my workspace in my stamp room so I can make cards for the people on my birthday list.
