We've taken all of the decorations down today, and I hate the feeling of emptiness it leaves behind, so I'm going to fill it by sharing my Christmas album! I fully intended to complete Shimelle's JYC this year, as I completely failed last year, but as usual life got in the way. I did take a load of photos though, so I've done a retrospective Christmas album instead :DPin It
I mainly used the gorgeous Crate Paper 'Peppermint' collection - all I added to it was some seam binding in red and green, a bit of Tim Holtz tissue tape on the spine, and an odd Studio G rub on from a sheet that I picked up in The Range for 25p, bargain! Oh, and the numbers on the cover are Thickers.
I built the journal from scratch by folding pieces of patterned paper and gluing them back to back. Before I share the rest of the photos with you (and there are a lot!) I must apologise for my sewing - it's only the second time I've used my sewing machine on paper, and the first time I've sewed through photo paper. I think I need to work on the tension, and on sewing in a straight line....
The rest of the post is photo heavy - but I hope you like them!
If you made it this far, thank you! I hope it was worth it :D
