Many of you will have heard or be participating in Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class - I first signed up 2 years ago and love the journals I have created - but not that I was finishing them in March each year! So this year I have put some thought into how to make it more manageable for myself - espeically as we have a new kitchen arriving on 1st December (aaagh). This is what I've come up with:
27 4x3 inch cards, 1 for December 1st-25th, and the covers. All have patterned paper on one side (which will have the photo for the day on) and a space for some journalling on the other - with embellies already stuck on. I've also cut my numbers out of a sheet of K & Co PP that was sitting in my christmas stash
and made my covers (the front is here)
The PPS are the My Minds Eye I Believe range, with some of their brads and die-cuts (gorgeous!), and a few pieces from previous years, there's some basic grey and some cosmo cricket I had in my christmas stash.
I've resigned myself to not keep up daily - instead I'll print my photos once a week and stick them on to the cards with my journalling and the relevant number in one go - am hoping this will mean I finish in the christmas holidays though instead of in the easter ones!
