hi everyone, another christmas journal available at my etsy shop . let me say i have had this little book for some months and couldn't find just the right papers to create the journal so i thought i may have to save it for later, but, i am happy to say, while looking at one of my favorite paper sites, "a cherry on top" i spotted this perfect christmas collection by "october afternoon" called "make it merry". life is good!
the covers were created from a 1948 christmas storybook called a jolly season. it measures 5.25" X 7 5/8" and has 50 pages which include a combination of lined writing, sketch, linen, and watercolor papers, on which you may journal, sketch, draw, paint, and glue.
attached to the o-wire binding and book tag with vintage seam binding.
name/date page with a bottom pocket and cutouts. each divider page is a full pocket page with a top opening. the facing page is an original page from the story book.
back side of divider 1
3 side pockets and a strip pocket on top.
mail stop page. the second divider has 2 horizontal pockets, the bottom pocket may be used for a book of stamps, phone numbers or anything that needs a shallow place to be. there are 2 little pockets on the top half of the page and a strip pocket on the bottom. aren't these papers sweet? they are premium double-sided card-stock papers, just the right time frame as the book.
