JYC Day 5-7

Been delayed in posting these pages,but I am still up to date, I have still a bit of journalling to do for each page as well. I also have cut some envelopes on the Cricut (similar to the beautiful kraft maya road ones) which I will put some extra journalling in.

JYC Day 4

I decided to differ from the prompt today and feature a recipe that I tried out today. It went down very well with my mum and dad who I took it over too. It is the first time I had ever done anything with fresh cranberries, and I am thinking of stocking up the freezer with some more.

Hope everyone has had a productive day.

Thanks for Looking

JYC Day 3

Today's prompt was about cards, this one had me stumped for a while, I still need to do my journalling, I like the idea of listing who I am sending cards to this year which has been mentioned on the forum.

I have shown examples of the cards I am sending to my work colleagues including the fairy motif and some of the cards I have received. I made my title to look like a string of cards and am pleased how it turned out.

SCD Tag Challenge

Well with my second SNOW DAY in full force, I decided to crack on with the SCD tag challenge this week. I love having time to catch up on all the tv I have recorded and to spend the day crafting.

The challenge this month is tags and the theme is: TREES

I decided to go Christmas themed of course, and am going to include this in my journal. I coloured the background with DI's and marbled with water and diluted glimmer mists. I stamped over a Papermania Christmas tree in brown archival ink. The tag was from a free download from misscutiepie which I embellished with some twine and a pin, and a button. I then highlighted the edges with some bronze embossing powder.

Thanks for looking.

JYC Day 2

Well after a my Snow Day yesterday(I have one today also) I got to take lots of photos and they fitted in great with weather prompt.

I still have the journalling to do am going to try and cut some envelopes on the Cricut today to fit this in.

JYC Day 1

I have had a snow day today so spent it crafting and catching up with the tv I have recorded. I am still enjoying this project and have taken lots of photos today of all the snow. I am loving my pogo printer as they are just the right size.

Here are my pages for the first day...
I was very happy to go in to work and see all the blooms had opened on my Christmas cactus. I don't have a garden at home but I have my window sill at work full of plants. I thought it would be something good to record as they bloomed on the 1st...I know a bit early for Christmas!!

The next is a page about a festive treat I had for lunch.

My album is starting to shape up nicely. I have include Shimelle manifesto, and also a lovely freebie from SJ over at Little Musings.

JYC Manifesto Page

I have started as I mean to go on and have been crafting away on the Journal Your Christmas class. The first prompt was to create a manifesto for the project and what you want to gain from it.

I have used a mixture of supplies from my stash and some from the Shimelle kit. I am really happy with it and think I am going to enjoy the format too.

My Manifesto...

This is the first year of me tackling the Journal Your Christmas class and I a

m really excited, it seems that we have not had a proper Christmas since we moved in our own place. It should be a time for me especially to get the house decorated and sorted but things get in the way. First year after moving out I had my bad back, second year we moved in to our current flat and nearly had no heating. This year after the many stresses and strains I am looking forward to doing Christmas my way and creating new traditions.
