Jolly Holiday!

Good Morning everyone! Yesterday I made some little mini scrapbooks from the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper. I LOVE the Jolly Holiday paper :D. I used the Scallop Square die to make the covers and the pages. I normally use acid/lignin free matboard for my covers. The matboard makes nice sturdy covers, but it's also archival quality. It's really easy to die cut the Designer Series Paper for the covers with the same die- no sanding, no fussing, a perfect fit :-).
 The first page as you open the book...
 I alternated the inside journaling/photo pages with Old Olive journaling lines/Cherry Cobbler photo mat....
 With Cherry Cobbler journaling lines/Old Olive photo mat. I stamped the little deer from the Winter Post stamp set (LOVE that set!!!) with Early Espresso ink on each journaling page.
To finish off the book, I tied two little jingle bells with gold crochet thread to one of the binding wires.These don't take long to make and they are great little brag books to haul around with you or make several with different themes and keep them in a basket on your coffee table. These are a good size for sharing your favorite photos with family and friends without taking up too much space. I hope you all had a wonderful week and that your Christmas To-Do lists are very small :D. Mine is still pretty big, but I'm checking stuff off my list one by one! Have a blessed day today!!!

Another adorable project. The pages are all great and love the little extra touch of the bells.

This is so cute, I really need to get my BIA out. Maybe I could make some Valentine ones, since it's too late for Christmas.

Thanks for sharing,
