Hello and welcome to my blog, wasn't Karen's project amazing, I love how elegant and sparkly her desk calendar is. If for some reason you get lost along the way you can always start over at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and go on from there.
As you know we are having our annual Christmas Magic Blog Hop with 2 chances to win a $20.00 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious, the rules will be at the end of my blog post. I sure hope one of my friends win this one!!
I made this book using 2 5x7 inch canvases and file folders from Tim Holtz. My papers and embellishments are all from Prima's Victorian Christmas and I was inspired by their creator Frank Garcia to make this book.
Here are the inside pages of the files with pockets and accessories from the Victorian Collection.
The story of Christ's birth is told in a simple kids style so that it easy for my little guy to understand what happened. In one of the folders I have a paper in a pocket "Our Gifts" so we can reflect on the scripture.
I colored the Magnolia images in distressed inks and printed out each scripture on the designer paper to match. The first one of the Angel folds out to read.
Here are the side views of the book, the back shows the spine and 2 canvases put together with scor-tape and glossy accents glue, it was heavy and wanted to pull away. I decorated the front and back but made sure that either side can be laid down or handle by childrens hands.
