Is It Too Early for New Year's Resolutions? for The Cutting Cafe

Hello, and happy Wednesday!  I'm posting for The Cutting Cafe today.  Regina has designed this awesome 2015 Planner.  And, I'm already determined to be more organized in 2015 -- all because of this Planner.  It is sooooo cool!
Warning:  Picture heavy post!

I kept the cover simple.  I plan to use this planner everyday.  I don't want lots of embellishments getting in the way.  I used one of the covers the come with The Planner.

Here's a look at the first tab and the yearly calendar.  I stamped "2015" on this tab.
This next picture is of a typical month.  Each month starts with a calendar of that month.  

Then, flipping to the next page, there is a page of notes, and then a daily planner:

Here's a page showing more towards the middle of a month:

The last picture of the planner shows the back cover, the tabs, how I bound my planner, and the ribbons I tied on my rings.

I used a retired Close To My Heart calendar stamp set to stamp the month on each tab.  I stamped both front and back so I could find the month from either side of the planner. 
Pages are 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper, folded in 1/2, and glued with a glue stick. the tab pages (like the one pictured above) are cut out of cardstock.
I plan to use this Daily Planner for scheduling blog posts, keeping track on design team assignments, doctor's appointments, work schedules, etc.  Regina has added Oct-Dec., 2014.  I have them printed, but haven't had a chance to add them to the planner yet.
Before I end this post, I want to leave you with one more picture:

Happy birthday to an awesome design team leader and friend.  Regina, you are the best! (and her birthday is tomorrow).  Stop by The Cutting Cafe blog on Thursday, Aug. 21 to wish Regina a great birthday.  Tell her Julie sent you!
