Did I scare you?! I did NOT mention the C-Word – yes it’s still November and not December yet, BUT: it is definitely less the three weeks until the first of December! And girls, you need to prepare your Christmas Journals! Perfect timing – lovely Shimelle is hosting a whole weekend with ideas and chances to win prizes!
Come over and join the fun!
It already started off yesterday evening with a woven card (with the paper I’m using for my JYC this year: Crate Paper – Peppermint).
The next post was about choosing the right size for your own Christmas Journal! That was quite a thing and I will tell you about that later!
The last entry for yesterday was about a Christmas Garland – I think I saw it already last year but didn’t have a go! So I will do it this year!
We got an early wake up call from Shimelle at about 6 am that morning! Don’t worry, not a real one, just on her blog! We should look through our projects and decide for a favourite one – I linked my Christmas Journal from last year – my favourite so far!
And the actual one is another Christmas Card by Pam Brown – it really looks easy and I will have a go on that as well!
Ok, let’s have a look at my size of this year’s Christmas Journal.
Last year I saw a journal which was made out of an old book cover like that:
And as you can see – I already had two options to go with. But still – I wasn’t quite sure!!! So when Shimelle posted her blog entry yesterday I had a flash inspiration: Composition Books! I still got some on my shelf because I’m using them as a diary! So this year (finally) I will have a bigger size: 9 3/4 x 7 1/2″
The paper inside was already cut off and I think I have to extend the spine – but that is going to be not before it is finished in January!
The paper (as I wrote before) this year is Peppermint by Crate Paper and I got it all together (still the little bits and pieces to come):
