My Christmas Organizer


It has been a long time since I created something other than a card, and it was fun to decorate a plain journal, to create a Christmas Organizer that I can use for Christmas card lists, and to keep track of gifts that I have bought already, or ones left to buy!!

Images are all Amber Ink. digi images, and were printed multiple times onto diff. patterned Making Memories papers as well as cardstock, and were then paper pieced. Images were also colored and shaded with Copics, and accented with stickles and Glossy Accents (boots and skirt are made shiny to look like leather!).

Rub on snowflake borders are Pink Paislee, and ornament pearls are a mix of Kaiser, Prima and Basic Grey.
