December Journal Completed

I am so happy that my December Journal is complete!
 
I think I have enjoyed doing this December Journal more than any year before!
But I probably say that every year!
 
To begin with, what I really love, is printed burlap that I used for the spine.
It is just so cozy, rustic and festive looking.
It was the perfect addition to the chipboard covers.
 
In the end, I also used a burlap ribbon to wrap around the album.
It then has some Heidi Swapp wood veneer "Cheer" to the end of it.
 
 

I ended adding a back flap the journal. I then close the  book with velcro. 
 
 


 
The inside of the journal has a very eclectic feel with all types of pages including pocket pages... 
 
 




various sizes of pages,



shaker pockets, flaps, and ephemera packaging,




...and even pages from old books.
 
 
 
 
 
My December Journal is finished off with some lovely charms which included...jingle bells, snowflakes,
 


cameras and tags,
 

and of course even angel wings to signify those watching from above.



Thank you for looking at my December Journal.
I am so happy to share this with you.
It truly has been a treasure to create.
 
I hope my Journal can inspire you in some way!
 
Happy New Year!
 
Gilly!
