It's November, and you know what that means.. the Countdown to Christmas is on.
Christmas is my very favourite time of the year. There is just something truly magical about Christmas. Even though for me, Christmas is normally spent at the beach, I would one day love to have a cold Christmas, or even better a White Christmas. Until then I will just have to make do with the gorgeous Christmas lines that are available..
Today I've got just the outside of my Christmas Journal to share with you. I am actually organised this year and have it finished before December.! ( well the cover anyway!)
As you can probably guess it is made with of course, some my very favourite Tim Holtz Christmas goodies..
I started off with a Christmas Worn cover, Now these are just gorgeous on their own, but I've decided to cover the front of mine. I've used some paper form the Holidaý's Past Paper Stash. I loved this paper when it came out, and was a little sad to see it retired..
I then layered some pieces from the Christmas Ephemera Pack which I've inked with Distress Ink around the edges, using of course you guesses it Gathered Twigs and some Idea-ology embellishments onto my background paper. Added in some die cut elements , painted with Distress Crackle paint - Love the Vintage Lace die! , Some trim, machine stitching and my ring binder and I was done..
I just love the Mirrored Stars and the Reindeer.
You can't have a bow without something dangling from it.. and what could be better than a Bauble, Christmas Muse Token and Ice Skate!
Now all that is left to do is fill it full of even more Christmas Goodness!
