 Yuletide Christmas Junk Journal

Today I am sharing a beautiful Christmas inspired journal using the new Yuletide collection designed by Jen Bishop and a vintage 1956 copy of a Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book. It is such a fun way to re-purpose a book into 
something special to share with family and friends.

 These papers are so rich with color and texture they easily stand alone with no decoration whatsoever, but using the laces, trims and the ephemera from the collection take it over the top.

I love the to add lots of techniques to incorporate into my journals. Little pockets and tags make a perfect place to tuck journaling,

 
The Bits and Bobs pack filled with unique Cabinet Cards are a great focal point 
and layering them over lace creates drama.
 

 
 
Using lace as a "belly band" is a fun way to add extra tags, photos or extra ephemera.
 
 A complete video series of the making of this 5 ring binder journal 
is under my playlist, Blue Fern Studios, on my
YouTube channel - Gayle Agostinelli.  

A flip through video is available at https://youtu.be/gHy5toyqDHs , 

if you'd like to see a walk through of the entire journal.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Journal.

Thank you for coming by today!

Hugs, Gayle
