In my last post I shared with you the Scrap Journal I created for December 2011. So I thought I’d take a minute just to show you the scrap journal I made for keeping this years memories. It’s much more simplified and not nearly as chunky. But I like it equally. 🙂
For this journal, I up-cycled chipboard I got from basic food boxes in my pantry. Most food items that come in boxes (such as the ones I used this time from my Slim Fast Bars) use thin chipboard. So I use double layers to make sure the pages are thick enough in the end. I don’t think you can see it in this picture very well, but this one has two rings for the hinges and I added lots of fun ribbons to each of them.
This book only has a dozen pages in it for now and I don’t think I’ll be adding any extras. I’ve got enough to create pages highlighting the special events planned for this year and maybe a page or two showing off some creative endeavors as well. Like for the door-decorating contest at work, etc.
For the pages in this journal I used papers from the Fair Isle Christmas collection from Deja Views. With a coupon I had, I got this paper pack for less than 5-bucks. I just couldn’t pass that up! Love these reindeer pictured on the front and all the papers inside are absolutely delicious!
I hope everyone has had a great start to their Holiday Season! I’m off to play some more in the art studio. Wahoo! Lot’s to do, lot’s to do, and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here!
