Simply Monica: Christmas Journals

Christmas Journals

Friday, November 20, 2015
Hi crafters! Today I am here sharing some gift ideas for Christmas.  This year I thought I would do something different with my niece and nephew and made them some Christmas journal books.  From December 1st until Christmas Eve they will have to write in these journals their dreams and wishes for Christmas.  Then I will have them each share their wishes and thoughts on Christmas Eve with everyone.

So I found some perfect books I could use and covered them with  CutCardStock: Classic Crest: Solar Whiteand Stardream Metallic:Fairway.  For the sentiment I used  Bright Foil Cardstock and  Classic Crest: Solar White.  Everything is pieced together with Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose glue.



I then used my CutCardStock in Royal Sundance:  Emerald Green



 I used a die from Spellbinders in the shape of a Christmas tree and used Stardream Metallic:Fairway.  I just love how nice and thick this paper is and it ran through my Spellbinders Grand Calibur with such ease and it cut all the intricate pieces with just one pass.  That goes to show the true quality of the paper.

Now just glue it to the front of your covers as shown below

Now you have some journal books with memories that will last a lifetime!
