Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

12 Days of Christmas

Meighan, one of the design team elves at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge  chose the challenge this week.  The challenges theme is "inspired by a Christmas Carol" and I chose to make a book with the theme of 12 days of Christmas. 

Several years ago TV Weekly featured Tricia Morris from Club Scrap making a mini book  from CD Literature folders.  The episode was called Pop, Pop, Fizz, Fizz and can be seen of YouTube.   I followed the basic directions to make this Christmas book.

I used a collection of digital images from Bugaboo Digital Images to make this book.  I thought they were cute and perfect for my little book.  I added lots of colours, ribbons, magic mess and glitter to make up the book. 


I added the music for the song on one page and put the complete words in an envelope and made a pocket to hold the envelope.

I added on the last page the history of the carol along with a tag to put a greet for the person who I am going to give it to.

 Thank for stopping by and have a creative day.  Hope you will join us at Holly Jolly this week.
