I inked the Santa stamp again with Wicked Black ink and stamp onto a piece of red cardstock (Color Washed Paper Pad). Only the Santa hat and berries will be needed. Next I fussy cut Santa, hat and berry images out and adhered the hat and berries to the Santa image.
I cut a 6"x9" piece of stripped cardstock (Paper House Color washed Paper Pad) and fold into to create a 4 1/2"x6" cover for the journal. I also cut five pieces of patterned cardstock in various sizes to fit the inside journal cover and folded those in half was well.
I measured 2 inches down on each end of the spine of the cover and mark with a pencil, poked a hole with the Tool 'n One on each marked spot. I centered the pages inside the journal cover, poke holes in each page. I threaded a Needle with Twine and sew all pages inside and tied the twine off on the inside of the journal.
Next cut 2 1/4"x6" piece of patterned cardstock and adhere to the cover along with the Santa image. Cut a gold piece of cardstock 3 5/8"x 1/2" and a patterned piece of cardstock 1 1/4"x3". Cut the end of the 1 1/4"x3" at an angle to create a banner. Adhere both to the bottom corner of the cover. I cut a Seal (Hipster 1 Diecuts) from red cardstock. Next I cut the "d", "e" and "c" letter stickers down and add to the seal diecut.
There you have it! This little journal can be used to take notes, as a planner or photos can be added to it!
