Vintage Christmas Journal

Howdy Crafters, 
Fit Kitty Challenged me to make a Christmas Journal - and I finished one up today! Yeah!

Although, Journals take time to create - I surely enjoy creating them and giving them as gifts. My Journals are primarily for writing. However, the recipient could add photos.

I made a decision to start using supplies I have been hoarding- [the brads, paper, charms, etc.] Like WHAT!! I said to myself... " You purchased these items for crafting - Hello!! Stop hoarding and use them---- you know-- so you can justify buying more!" LOL

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week.
Main tems I used for this Journal
Cuttlebug ~Misti- Scissors, Corner Punch
MFT-Die-Namics Stitched Tag Die/Banners [various sizes]
Scotch White Glue - ATG
TLC Printables throughout Journal
