Product Challenge - Day planner using Teresa Collins Memories Collection

Hey everyone! I was so excited to be a part of this challenge! I loved the idea of going up against one of my team mates to share and hopefully inspire you over on the Teresa Collins team blog today! I loved that Yvonne and I have created calendar/day planners using the same collection - MEMORIES, but each of our projects are very uniquely different! Please head over to the Teresa Collins design team blog to see the great project Yvonne created too!!

To create my book, I used the stitched notebook and file folders to create my base pages.
Each month/page I created a pocket using the decorative papers cut on a slight angle. I cut small doilies in half (from my stash!) then added them to the fronts of each of the pockets. For the "TABS" I used the filmstrip paper from the collection, I cut it into a strip then cut the numbers as I needed them for each month!! I think it looks so cool!!
I created Journal cards from the papers in the collections and added some manila tags so I can jot down notes as I need. I love texture and paint so yes, I did paint all of the edges of everything! I love how the bright white paint looks with this book!
To add the file folders from the collection, I cut them to fit the height then using washi tape as my adhesive I binded them to the stitched notebook. You can see how the filmstrip washi tape overlays the seam of the April page and the file folder I added. 
I love the pocket envelopes in the collections and I added one to the back of the file folder.

I loved decorating the manila tags with layers from the embellishments. 

Here is where I added another file folder, again using washi tape.

I added the largest envelope to the back page, this will be a great spot to save important receipts, etc.

Thank you so much for looking!! I hope you are inspired to create a fun and useful book!
Be sure to head over to the Teresa Collins Designs team blog today to check out Yvonne's project!!
