Tips on How to Make a Beautiful Christmas Journal.

Good morning ScraPerfect friends,  Steph here today to show you tips on how to make a beautiful Christmas journal.  The Best Glue Ever was the perfect adhesive to use in adding bling to a journal.

I picked up several clearanced spiral bound notebooks figuring I would be able to use them for a variety of future projects.  Since I still had some Christmas papers close at hand, I added some cardstock to the front of the notebook and put layers of pattern paper on top.

The pattern paper, consisting of holly and berries, needed some bling, so I used the Best Glue Ever and the Embellie Gellie to add gems to the berries.  You just add a little bit of the Embellie Gellie adhesive to the flat end of the stick and then use the stick to pick up any gem you are looking for.   Since the gems cling to the adhesive, it was quite easy to then place the gems directly where I wanted them.  A dab of the Best Glue Ever and the gems are permanent on my journal.

This was a quick and easy project as well as fun to make.   All I need now is add photos and journaling and I have the perfect Christmas journal.

Thanks for stopping by today.
