Christmas, Journal Your Christmas

Happy 2015!

Happy 2015 everyone!  May this year be all that you hope it to be!

Man did December go by fast I have soo much to share with you! New and Old!  I am going to take the month of January to wrap up my Journal Your Christmas.  I am still waiting on printer ink so I can print my photos.  I got a new printer I will post a review once I ‘ve had my chance to test it thoroughly and learn how to use it, lol.  2 Custom albums I’ve completed that were Christmas gifts and so much more!

Let me dive right into Journal Your Christmas here are is page 6.  I am going to use this page to post about our Winter Getaway.

Documenting December

Season Greetings!

December is here and I hope you plan on capturing every minute of it.  Too busy, too overwhelmed, too much month than money!  Those can be all the feeling we feel during the month of December and we begin not to enjoy it.  Let me propose this…Document your December!

There are several ways including December  Daily, Journal your Christmas or create your own.

Too busy-

write on a 3 x 4 card every day and file it

Take one photo a day-once December it over print it or make a digital album

Have your family each take a turn a write something every day

You can do it!

This is my second year documenting my  December mixing Journal Your Christmas with my own ideas.   I purchased my supplies last year and alas the season is upon us…did I say I was ready.

To tackle this busy month with ease here’s my plan

Keep all your Christmas delights together

Use a smaller album-8 x 8 Album(So much fun last year used three 6 x 8 albums just for one Month!)

Uniform your Dates-Thickers, handwritten, date stamp

My Collections this year is Santa’s List by Theresa Collins.  (I purchase my Christmas Collections the year before when they are marked down:))

Supplies organized, condensed and ready

I adore little tags, boxes and different size pages…nothing is off limits.  Here I embossed a bag off center so I can hole punch the bag and add it as a page.

Bits and Bob-I wanted to add some brads and banners  to bring out page more.

My dates will be date stamped this year for uniformity.  I also added snowflake veneers to play off of the snowflakes on the file folder.

After printing my Manifesto I rounded the corners

Fil in the rest of my embellishments and added my title.  I often like to cut out my titles 3 times for more depth and texture.

Yup you can stamp right on your wood veneers.

Good Christmas Morning To You and Your Family!

Wise Men still Seek Him

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

 My You take this time to Remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season.  Without Him We would not be and would be eternally separated from the Father.  The Father who has allowed us to be with our families and loved ones.  He as provided the means to purchase toys even the ability to remember loved ones who are no more.  I thank God for sending His son and giving man a way to reconcile.  Happy Birthday Jesus and thank you for providing a way.  Merry Christmas to All.

Embellish, Embellish and oh did I say Embellish!

I have a ton of Brads and for some reason I just don’t use them.  I think its because I don’t like the bulk so now I just cut off the back pieces and use my hot glue gun!
