Merry Christmas Large Pocket Journal~

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas!!
I know that there are a lot of different colors out there being used for Christmas, but there is just something about those Traditional, Red, Greens & Whites that capture my heart!!

Today, I have a large Pocket Journal that I created with products from and Reneabouquets Etsy Shop that capture that Vintage Christmas feel that I love so much:

I started with a Reneabouquets Handcrafted Sewn Pocket Journal Base, and then got to layering with 
papers from the Blue Fern Vintage Christmas Paper Collection. I absolutely love the papers from this collection!! I used the traditional reds, greens and whites for this project. 

I added some YUMMY background texture using Ranger Texture Paste and a damask stencil.
The Snow White Glitter Glass Butterflies are my own handcrafted butterflies that I carry in my Reneabouquets Shops.

Next, a layer  of Wide Floral Lace was added to create a soft sheer background for my floral layer, which I created using some Prima and Petaloo flowers, as well as some feathers for softness.

At the corner of the sentiment paper piece, I added one of my Reneabouquets Victorian Christmas Die Cuts.

For this piece at the top of the folder system, I took a Blue Fern Ironworks Accent Chipboard Piece, painted it with Dina Wakley Gesso and then coated it with Reneabouquets Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass for a wonderful sparkle that you just can not see in the photos. I added a sweet little santa hat, and a tiny glass vile of Reneabouquets Silver Christmas Glitter. I used velcro to adhere it, so that the glitter can be removed and used on the journaling pieces. 

The system contains:
2-Oversized, Double Sided Tags with seam binding bows topped with Snowflake Buttons
1 -Large Punched tag wit seam binding bow topped with a real Jingle Bell
2- Pull Outs that open up booklet style
2-Small, Double sided Pull Outs with seam binding bows.

I hope that you enjoy this Thanksgiving Holiday with your family and friends!! I just love all the fun stuff that surrounds these next weeks as we go full force into the Holidays! Thank you for taking the time during this busy season to stop by and let me share my projects with you!! Hugs ~Renea
