We may be well into December but its not too late to get organised for recording your festive season. I'm loosely following Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas with a bit of a daily diary aspect too. This is my desk at the start of the month (temporarily cleared off to accommodate wrapping...)
I keep everything to hand when I'm doing an ongoing project like this because it helps to narrow down the decision making and gives continuity by only using the supplies on the table. I'm using divided page protectors this year so that I can do a lot or a little, depending on time, inclination and story. Its also easier to think in smaller chunks and it is a lot less overwhelming than filling a full 12x12 page everyday.Bundled Up by Crate Paper because it matches the Winter Project Life kit that I had. Its not a usual Christmas colourway for me because I'm usually quite traditional but I just fell in love with it. Also I like that it is wintery and not just Christmassy so will be useful for any snow pictures too.
Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection called Flea Market because the colours matched so well. It pads out the variety nicely and is perfect for those days that are not full on festive.
My punches are all here at the ready too. Aside from continuity and limiting my options, I find that they inspire me when they are out like this so I get a good start for deciding on the design of each pocket.
Bundled Up ephemera. My little heart shaped bowl has my very small embellishments like the Studio Calico veneer stars and snowflake brads.
I'm going to be posting regular updates and some of my journalling so I hope you'll come back and share your thoughts with me too.
Bye for now
