Santa Claus is Comin’…

Yeah, it really is a bit early.  But hey, I’ve seen Christmas stuff in the stores already – so why not get started on Christmas books?

I used pre-made covers for this one and managed to mess up the front cover when some glue went astray, so I had to cover it with paper.  I’m rather glad I did, as I like the design of the paper a little better than the pre-printed one.

Last year at Christmas time, the awesome and grungy-esque Tim Holtz made 12 holiday tags as his fans followed along.  I displayed the tags on my cabinet at work and they’ve been sitting in a little silk bag since then.  After looking through them for ideas, I decided to use one on this book.  I enhanced it a little with glitter and replaced the silver elements with gold ones to match the tapestry ribbon.  Voila!  My work was half done.

The papers inside are by K&Company; lovely soft greens and reds.  It will make a beautiful holiday memory book!  🙂

    You know how much I LOVE your T!m tags, right? It looks so amazing on the cover of your book, it’s stunning and such a treasure! Because I was lucky enough to hold this tag in my hot little hand, I know this picture doesn’t do it justice. Beautiful Christmas Journal – I think I’m a little jealous, mine pales in comparison!
