Documenting December in my Junk Journal Traveler's Notebook

Earlier this week I was trying to decide what to do, if anything, to document December. Then I came across Shimelle Laine's Journal Your Christmas class and decided to participate. After registering for the class I realized I needed to make a decision on how I was going to document the month. My choices were:
  • 12x12 album - I quickly ruled that one out. I know based on past holiday seasons I just don't take enough photos to do a full 12x12 page each day and that it would be too much pressure for me to keep up with.
  • 6x9 album - with pocket pages and a mix of traditional pages. I really contemplated this because I've see so many fun samples of this style of documenting lately. But I decided I'd try that format for a different themed album in the new year.
  • Regular Travelers Notebook - I considered this option as well but then looked at my collection of Christmas papers and embellishments that I have left over from this years Holiday Catalogue and decided to go with...
  • Junk Journal Travelers Notebook - well at least that's what I call it. 
I pulled out a bunch of supplies that coordinate. Note: they don't have to coordinate but I like it when they do:) Here's a photo of what I pulled out to begin with. I added some fabric after I took the photo.

When I do projects like this I don't worry about what is current or retired of if it's Stampin' Up! product, I just pull out whatever suits my fancy. It feels so good to use stuff that I've had for years and have never found a use for. I love it!

So then I went to town and created my junk journal. I did a flip through video, you can find it here, or below if you are reading this my blog.

At the end of the video I mentioned that I had a few junk journals with the supplies to decorate. I still have a couple left, if anyone is interested. The cost is $35 Cdn + shipping (if needed).  Contact me if you'd like one. Available while supplies last.

I will also be offering a class if you are in the Edmonton, Sherwood Park or surrounding areas - class will be on January 22nd at 7pm. Obviously it will not be Christmas themed:) More details to come mid month.

Have a creative day!
