Holiday Planner & a give-away ~ Crafty Secrets

Good Monday morning, I think. It might not be so good when I step out to get in my car.....booooo-zeeeeee!!!!!

A perfect day to show you my Holiday Planner/Holiday Open House Guest Book/Christmas Card Journal, what ever you want it to be! This was so much fun for me to make. I love doing projects like this, it means I can really use some bling!!




I used the Crafty Secrets Wood Clipboard Album, Christmas Vintage Postcard Kit and Earthy Paper Pad. I painted the 2 board pieces with antique white acrylic paint and covered the top board with Earthy paper. Sandy had sent some paper doilies quite awhile ago and I got one out and dirtied it up with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink and a blender tool. I put in on over the paper. I covered the inside of the top board with confetti white card stock to cover the doilie I had adhered to the inside. I covered the chipboard pieces with the papers from the postcard kit. I put Distress Crackle Paint~Clear Rock Candy on the postcard piece, it's all cool & crackly IRL!
I used Grungeboard~Seasonal (snowman, snowflake & ornament) I used Crackle Paint~picket fence & black soot on the snowman. I painted the snowflake with acrylic paint and sprinkled on Diamond Dust glitter. The '25' numbers are by Tim Holtz.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I picked this up at a flea market for $2.00. I remember seeing them in cafe's years ago sitting by the cash register, they would poke the tickets on it. Remember? I thought I could use it for something. Well I decided it made the perfect hemp holder. It could also be used as a weapon if need be, LOL!! Cool, huh?!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~OK, time for the give-away!!

You'll have a chance to win this Crafty Christmas! There is 1 Christmas Vintage Postcard Kit, 1 just released Christmas Creative Scraps and the Christmas Images & Journal Notes booklet!!All you have to do is leave a comment here on this post, along with your email address so I can contact you, that's it! I won't make you work too hard, LOL! I will announce the winner Sunday,Oct. 11th.

Pam--gorgeous! Love the journal. I'm going to have to do one of those, such a great idea! Great idea for the little stabby thing, too--what are those called, anyway? Thanks for sharing these.

broni (waterchild12) said...

What a gorgeous Christmas album, Pam!! Love your flea market find too! Yes, I DO remember those!

Julie Ranae said...

I love albums like that too where you can just PILE IT ON! And...I am a flea market girl, but I must admit I tend to 'store it' rather than 'use it', but I am getting better.

Thanks for a chance to win...my email is paul.julie1102@sbcglobal.net

Sherry Cheever said...

GORGEOUS journal/guest book! I remember those little pokie things too . . . you've come up with a perfect idea for it. I can also see it being used to poke holes through grunge, etc. At least you would have a handle to push against! I might have to look through Bernie's Bargain Barn to see if I can find one!

I love your journal - very pretty. Thanks for a chance to win!
