25 Days Of Christmas Stuffed Envelope Pocket Journal~

Today, I have a large Stuffed Envelope Pocket Journal to share with you. I wanted to create a Vintage Christmas Theme, and I used lots of products from Reneabouquets to get that "days gone by" look that I just love~so nostalgic and so dear to my heart!

I started with a base that I created by cutting down manilla file folders and sewing them together to give me a piece that I can tuck lots of goodies into. I added a layer of distressed edge Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas Paper , and then edged the pocket out with Silver Christmas German Glitter Glass.
I ran a piece of Vintage Wedding Lace across the bottom. I added some Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Medium Victorian Scroll Pattern pieces, 

and then fussy cut out a Christmas Tree from the papers, adding texture paste to the edges for a snowy effect and layered that on top of the BBoard pieces.  I then added some flowers from the following RB Flower Sets:

Winter White Mulberry Poinsettias, Curly Roses & Holly Leaves Flower Set

Soft Pink Roses Gardenias & Leaves Flower Set
Pink & Ivory Mini Roses Flower Set
to the corner of the tree, popped on a little Magical Miniatures Premium Paper Double Side Printed Watercolor Spun Sugar Butterfly, and took a small glass vile, filled it with Silver Christmas German Glitter Glass, added a "wonderful" sentiment to it along with some hand dyed seam binding and a tiny Pink & Ivory Mini Rose, and tucked that behind the flowers for a fun embellishment for the journaling tags inside the pocket.

I then added a Large My Doll And Me Printed Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Die Cut, and then created a little seam binding bow with silver tiny jingle bells and added that to the scroll boarder.

I added a sweet, little bottle brush wreath to the top corner of the pocket, adding some matching flowers and seam binding bow to decorate it up.

All the tags and booklets were made from the Blue Fern Studios Vintage Christmas Papers
and include:
2 Large Double Sided Tags with Seam Binding Bows topped with Anastasia Rhinestone Brooches
2-Medium, Double Sided Tags with Seam Bow Binding Bows topped with Pink & Ivory Mini Roses
2- Small Double Sided Pull Outs
2- Folded Pieces
A Little Jar of Silver German Glitter Glass

The backside of the pocket is finished out in matching papers and edged with the Silver German Glitter Glass for a finished, designer look.

I hope you have enjoyed the walk through of my Stuffed Envelope Pocket Journal, and I also hope that you are enjoying this Christmas Season!! Now it is time to grab a big (ok huge) cup of hot chocolate and lounge around the fire place and dream up some new Reneabouquets Creations!! Hugs ~Renea
