Papermaze Christmas Blog Hop

Hi and Welcome to the Papermaze Blog Hop.


I'm not a Christmas Scrapper.
I get chance to scrap most days, but I just don't enjoy Christmas Scrapping. 
I've given up with all the Christmas Journals. I just can't keep them up and then feel let down after when I have another half made/completed journal. So last year I found a way of having a teeny Christmas Mini and not feeling the pressure to keep it up throughout Christmas. So this year I've made the same kind of Teeny Mini and feel so much happier. 
Here it is:


I've used the Jillibean  Christmas Eve Chowder - Bite Sized Bits. I've cut them all up and used them as my pages.


I've decorated with the matching Jillibean Soup Die Cuts.





Once all the cards were stuck back to back and inked, I holed them in the correct order and added a book ring.
I used some ribbon from my odds and ends jar and a little glitter here and there and the mini book is now done.
I will now add a little journaling throughout the month and a few photos.
Easy Peasey!!

If you are playing along with the Papermaze bloghop here is the list for you to hop through.


  
 You will need to leave a comment on each blog as you hop through.
There will be one lucky winner picked at random at the end and they will receive this lovely kit of Christmas Goodies.


Seeing as it's almost Christmas and it's been a while since I've offered some blog candy, please become a follower here if you aren't already and I will also pick at random one person and will post out some goodies too : )
I'm thinking stamps, pretty things and a little chocolate too. It is Christmas after all. 

 Thanks so much for playing along with us.

Brilliant idea, I think youre right it can be daunting trying to keep up, you also put yourself under pressure.
