Merry Christmas

I sincerely hope everyone can stay safe, but things are not looking too good are they.

I always make a December Daily journal each year. I won’t have very much to put in it again this year, but we are doing our best to hold on to the Christmas Spirit. 

I started by making a little bag to hold my journal, my mother taught me how to use a sewing machine last year, but I am pretty hopeless at it! My excuse is I cannot feel my foot so I don’t know when I’m pressing the pedal ! 

For my journal I used a small book binding kit I received as a blog prize quite a few years ago. I had not made this type of journal before. You use thread to stitch  the pages in. I also cut down my old Christmas papers which I’ve had for years, so it was a bit of a mismatch. But I have so many scrapbook papers I really need to use them up.

Our Christmas tree this year. 

I wish you the happiest Christmas it is possible to have , stay safe xx

Christmas Eve

Hello, how are you? I hope you are enjoying the festive season so far. I have finished making all of my Christmas cards, and today I have written and stamped them all! A task and a half!  I have lots of cards to share, and today I’ve chosen a card that I’ve Called “Christmas Eve” as it features Father Christmas, and his reindeer. I decided this reindeer is Ruldolph. so I have of course given him a red nose. I used watercolours, Sprinklets, white pen, and lashings of glitter. I also used some old Christmas scrapbook paper to make an extra special envelope for the card. I am on a mission to use up my mounds of patterned paper 😁

I made a larger size of the card too. 

Thank you for visiitng today, and please stay safe xx

I would like to enter “Christmas Eve “ into the following Challenges
