Journal Your Christmas

This year I am taking part in an online class called Journal Your Christmas. The idea is to spend about 15 minutes a day making a daily entry in your journal. I signed up at the last minute and with a busy start to the week it has taken me a few days to get up to date and of course that meant ignoring the ironing to do crafting instead - such a sacrifice!!!

Here is the cover which I made from covered chipboard and chipboard letters covered with acrylic paint and Glamour Dust - well actually everything is covered in glamour dust - that stuff gets everywhere!

Day One

This is my manifesto, my intention to journal everyday and enjoy the magic of Christmas. I had fun using a patchwork of scraps on this page.

Day Two

This is about the weather and the hope of snow at Christmas. I used a photo that I took in the park earlier this year. I managed to use some of my Basic Grey Blitzen on this page.

Day Three

This is about Christmas cards so I have created a little pocket to keep some envelope in and in one of them are some photos of my Christmas cards.

Ooh I love all your pages, they are beautiful, mine are lacking that little bit extra at the moment. Loving the size as well, it's a while since I did a 12" x 6" album which is what I'm guessing it is! I love this class, it really puts you in the reflective mood! Hope you're having a great day!

I love the little pockets to keep the cards in. Your manifesto idea with the scraps like a quilt is fab as well.
