Journal Your Christmas 2011

As December approaches, I'm thinking about how I'm going to Journal My Christmas this year as I participate in Shimelle's class.  Last year I used divided page protectors so I could create little pages, but still keep them in my main albums, and I'm going to do that again this year.

I was really please with my JYC from last year - it was my third and favourite - and so I'm going to develop that idea a bit further this year and aim to coordinate a bit more.  How?  Well, you'll just have to wait and see!

And I'm going to be sharing some thoughts and ideas about wintry crafts along with Jennifer from Jennifer's Jumbles and lots of other bloggers this weekend.  Jennifer has organised a lovely weekend of winter themed goodness called Frosty Festivities and if you pop back on Friday, you'll find a bloghop that I'm taking part in, along with my ideas for Festive Scrapping this season.  Looking forward to it!

P.S. The one thing that I can think of that I really don't like about this time of year is that there's never enough nice, clean, fresh natural light to get good project pictures.  *sigh*  Here's to the yellow tinge of indoor winter photos :D

P.P.S. If you raise a glass or two of mulled wine to that, it doesn't seem so bad.


  1. It looks fabulous - I'm a big fan of the 4x6 canvas put into page protector pockets. Looking foreard to seeing your plans for this year

  2. Your JYC looks great. I'm going to use the prompts this year to catch up with 12x12 Xmas pages missing from other albums(because I've been doing JYC)

  3. Oooo, really like the divided protectors, may have to think about doing this myself as my christmas pages are beginning to feel a bit samey :) thanks for the inspiration

  4. I was thinking of something along these lines for my project this year, wonder if it's because my subconscious remembered how good yours looked? :)

  5. Mulled apple juice here but yep it does help with the winter lighting blahs... as does good daylight bulbs for your lamps. Just replaced one and am astonished at how well the photos come out!

  6. I love what you did last year and cannot wait to see your work for this Christmas album!
