Here is a Christmas Journal created to add to each year. I have included family Christmas traditions and recipes as well as photos in the journal. Some of the recipes handed down from my late mom-in-law are in her own handwriting!
The Simple Stories [email protected]! albums are perfect for the journal. To create the cover, place an acetate sheet onto front cover of album, securing with a strip of Tissue Tape and washi tape to bottom and top edges. Secure a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and apply light coat of embossing paste using a palette knife. Remove excess paste. Carefully remove stencil from design. Set aside to dry. Apply Distress Ink (colour of choice) and Pumice Stone Distress Paint over dry paste. Lightly spritz with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl Mists. Swipe Galaxy Gold Brillance ink over corner areas. Decorate with pleated trim, burlap strip, jute, buttons, sequins and chipboard elements.
