My Creative Time's 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~DAY 5


Welcome to DAY 5 of the My Creative Time's 12 days of Christmas Blog Hop. If you came from Liz's blog, you came to the right place. Christmas is just around the corner and most of us still have some shopping do. I know I do! I thought of making a fun and easy journal for my mother-in-law. I bought a composition notebook from Walmart and covered it with designer paper. I then distressed the edges and inked it up with Tim Holtz vintage photo. I then used mod podge to seal the paper.  I tied a ribbon around the front cover to give it a soft look.  I used Emma's XL Label Die  and XL Label Borders for my title. I then stamped "Nana" and the heart using Anyday Bingo Crossword stamps. I added some yellow brads to finish it off. Cute and simple gift!! I really hope she likes it.




Recipe:
DCWV Mariposa Paper Collection
Satin Ribbon
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
Composition notebook
Mod Podge
Brads


Up next is Nikki

Here is the line up in case you get lost along the way.
