I don't know about you but thinking about the holidays already is getting me a bit stressed. Here is a little Holiday Planner I created . Planning and writing things down always seems to get me more organized and less stressed.
First, I die cut several dies out of pattern papers using Donna's Sprightly Sprockets and Carnation Creations dies. I added Mix'd Media Inx and Fairy Dust glitter to give them appropriate holiday shine.
Next I assembled the book distressing and inking the edges of various pattern papers from the Weathered Winter line.
Yikes... Instead of looking like a crime scene, I was able to absorb most of it onto a roll of papertowel. Not wanting to waste any of that gorgeous stuff, I decided to have some fun with it instead!
I added some Evergreen smooch spritz with the Holly berry.
I hand cut leaves to make holly out of the spritzed and stained dry paper towel.
Next, I created a little bow by carefully tying a strip of the paper towel. Once it is spritzed, it is a bit delicate. Allowing it to fully dry helps it absorb the liquid and hold together better. I snipped the ends to resemble a bow.
I layered and bound the book using my bind it all.
