December Daily!



I had a go at making a 25 Days Christmas Journal. The only scrapbooking I've done, is Leanne Beasleys Journal, where I pretty much had step by step DVD to follow. So as I was fairly new to scrapbooking, and its already an expensive time of year, I decided to make do with what supplies I already had. The cardstock I had, wasn't very christmassy, but oh well!

So I started on the front cover, which I used cardboard from a shoe box and the back cover was cardboard from a dolls box. Yes, I have probably broken a few rules there, but I was quite happy once the edges were sanded! Ive just made a few blank pages and will go back and embelish later...probably after Christmas! Lol!

Looks great Lisa! Great that you used items from around the home - it is called 'scrapbooking' after all!
Looking forward to watching your journey

Hello Lisa, I agree with the other comments. Go with what you have on hand and just look at what you have you can use things in different ways. Have fun with the journal.

it looks great! well done! My only scrapping to date was the quilter's journal too so my December daily journal is a little simpler than others I've seen - but it's getting there!!!
