Christmas Book

Hello everyone. I have been holding back on sharing this project with you as I wanted to do it as close to Christmas as possible. I start my vacation next week and will not go back to work again until January 5th.

I get to start my wonderful vacation by having a wisdom tooth pulled. I am not looking forward to that at all and will probably be down and out for a few days.  So I thought this day was as good as any to share my project.


This is the second Christmas book I made this year, and I sold both of them at craft shows!


I loved making them, but boy they are a lot of work. Now when I say work, I do mean fun work. There are so many pages to decorate and design, and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it when I am done.


I created a pocket page to insert a gift card or fun tag. I thought this may be used as a gift so wanted to make room for a little extra insert. 


With both books, I created matted pages which would be perfect to add pictures. My other thought that this may be used as a holiday album keepsake where a few holiday pictures could b e added.


Journaling is also very important. Many people forget to document the event, I  made sure I left plenty of room for journaling. I created a Naughty page and a Nice page.


I also included a little December calendar. I thought that was a nice touch. 


Here are a couple more matted pages for pictures. The one below is light enough where you could even write a little paragraph or funny story, if one so chooses.



Well, I hope that you like my share. I was foolish and did not take pictures of my first one before it got sold, I made sure I took pictures of this one right away. I am hoping to make a few more of these in 2015. I figure the more I make, the better they will be.

I would love to hear your thoughts on my Christmas book. Thanks for stopping by.


I would like to enter my Christmas book into the following challenges:
