Merry Penguin Christmas

Hello my friends!

Just wanted to stop my packing for a min. to share a few pictures with you. This is one of my most recent journals for a swap. The fun thing about this is... I made my own book cloth and covered book board to make the cover. It was easy and so much fun, so now, the sky is the limit for fabric covers.

The journal is 7" tall and 5" wide with a 2" spine. It's actually suppose to be a December Daily journal to track your busy, family filled month.

I decided to use a more retro color pallet which fits me sooo well. I adore everything mid-century!

The fabric I have had in my stash for years. I thought it was perfect for the two kits I used.

I used kits from Ephemoire's Peppermint Stick and Calico Collage's Joyful Christmas. I thought they worked nicely together.

All the vintage ephemera I used for the journaling inserts I found during Pinterest searches.


The mini clothes pins and charms I purchased from Walmart and Hobby Lobby. The lace pockets are lace from a dress I purchased at Goodwill.

I hope my swap partner likes this cutie. I know I had a lot of fun creating it. Now, I'm off to pack a few more boxes. Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles & Hugs!
Peggie Sue
