3 Girl JAM Holiday Blog Hop - A Christmas Journal

Welcome to the 3 Girl JAM Holiday Blog Hop!

If you came from Jovan's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to visit today and haven't started the hop from the beginning, click here to start at 3 Girl JAM.  We have some fabulous projects lined up today and some special Guest Designers too.  We have all used some of the new Holiday Products (including: The Ribbon Candy Crinkle Ribbon Bundle, Christmas Flair, or the new Jute Ribbon and String Bundle).  I liked these new products so well that I found a way to use something from each bundle.  Don't they coordinate well?


To start with I created this large flower with the Red Ribbon Candy and the new flair.  To view a tutorial on how to make this, click here.


I then turned a composition book into a Christmas Journal for my nephew and his wife.  It includes sections for recipes, traditions, gift giving, photos, and recipes with a few already included.  I made quite a few of these last year and have a few to make this year too.  They make perfect gifts that will last a long time.   Jute ribbon, Green Ribbon Candy ribbon and some rose trim from my JoAnn's provided a great accent for the Tim Holtz Holiday Paper Stash pad that I used.  The video will show you a bit of the inside of the journal.


Now you might say, "Well that's pretty enough, but it's just something else to clutter the shelf".  I actually made one last year year and I love the organization it helped me with.  I will be collecting even more of our favorite recipes and memories to add to it.  Check back tomorrow to see my personal journal and how I used a few more sections to make it work for my family.

Now it's time to Hop on through and get inspired for the Holidays!
