It feels great to be able to say that you made something yourself. But what's even greater is to be able to give these handmade crafts as presents for others. This is the concept behind CBTL's 2013 Giving Journal, a planner that gives back to the community by supporting the Real Life Foundation, and at the same time, encourages you to make + give to your loved ones.
Every monthly divider features moments and things that the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf celebrates, as well as handmade crafts that you can make yourself. You can also expect planner staples such as the Giving Game Plan to be part of the inside pages of the planner.
For this planner, I worked closely with Dar and Em, and designed the cover, dividers, and crafts, while Beam worked on the inside pages. Ralph Hilario shot all the divider photos and product shots. Here's a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the 2013 CBTL planner!
