My Journal Cover for JYC

Two posts in one day. This one is short and sweet though – too busy with the tea party!  🙂

This little stash is for my cover for the Journal Your Christmas class I am taking over at Most of it has been around for a lot of years. Just went through various boxes in my scraping area and pulled this together. The cover is made with chipboard and some sticky back suede stuff that Annette from Scrap Happens Here found at our local craft store. This stuff is from France and is very easy to use too.

Although I am doing mainly digital with bit of hybrid the cover will be prettied up a bit. As usual this album will be made totally from scratch. As I am hoping to find a Bind it All under the tree on Christmas Day I am not cutting any holes yet. If it comes down to it I will just use O rings like on the Stories in Hand journal I made a while back.

Living in the Middle East the evergreen tree thing is pretty rare. This palm tree is more apt for our Christmas. So many times I have gone to throw the little wooden palm tree away.  And as always hung onto it. Can’t help myself. =)) Just knew it would come in handy one day. The bling is a Swarovski crystal star that I had purchased, then not used, on a quilt challenge some years ago.

The tag is the same as the one I am using on the dailies. Yes it is upside down. Will remake it. It is laminated and will be punched and left free on the front. So in absense of a completed cover you will just have to use your imagination and think binding, some more bling, perhaps some beads and definitely some ribbon tied to the binding.
