Yikes! Only 36 Days until Christmas

How did that happen? I would probably say I am as organised as usual (which very disorganised  but I have managed a few tasks that I wouldn't normally do by now. I spent the whole day yesterday making a special Christmas present which I won't share because it's a surprise. I have also made a December journal for Merly Impressions which is super-organised huh?

I created my own chipboard book but obviously a ready made book would make it much quicker to make.

The Turtle Dove Collection features loads of beautiful images in traditional festive colours.
The collection has a beautiful die-cuts and stickers which are perfect for this type of project.

If you click on the images to see a larger version, you will see that many of the pages are shaped. I had bought a Basic Grey chipboard album years ago which I use as a template. I often will buy a chipboard piece with a view to using it as a template only (saves lots of money!)

As I have never made a December journal before, I kind of went with a page to cover several days (I wouldn't be taking photos and journaling every day as I don't have time).

Most days I left a spot for journaling but I can add extra tags later if needed.

I think in hindsight I would put the numbering on later but the Sticker sheet has such cool numbers to choose from I had to use them straight away.

I tucked in Boutique Buttons here and there from The Vintage Christmas.

I have left space near the end to allow me to add anything I missed out during the month.
