Design Team Project #2 ....

Did you see our news!!!!!!!! .... oh my I'm still giddy with the excitement. To see all the details and how to register your interest, click HERE.

So today I'm back sharing an easy peezy project using the beautiful 12x12 papers & embellishment sheets. A quick and easy way of journalling your christmas day memories either to keep for yourself or to share with a loved one.


Simply cut your preferred cardstock cover to size, score down the middle, ink edges with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain), then cut various size pages from remaining cardstock and embellish with tags/stickers from the collection. It really is as easy as that!

(3rd page)

(4th page to which I have added a kraft gift label for extra journalling/notes)

(the journal has simply been bound with gold metallic thread)

(back cover)

If you are like me *a real paper hoarder* this is a quick and easy project to use up your cardstock, it doesn't just have to be for christmas.

I will be back on Friday to share one more project with you, until then thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. x

A neat idea Gillian! I love little books, folders or journals and it's a lovely idea to have one just for Christmas Day. I love the way you've incorporated the stickers too.

Those papers are really lovely - and what a great way to have them together in one place... a lovely journalling book for your Christmas notes.
