Christmas Gift Blog Hop Day 1


Thank you for joining us on our
Christmas Gift Blog Hop!
These past few months have been very exciting
for the Tsunami Rose Design Shop!
Keep up with Tsunami Rose updates by checking out our:


Daisy Collins, owner and designer has been hard at work on
3 new printable journals, we are here to show off
“Christmas Gift” which is her Christmas themed journal.
About “Christmas Gift” Printable Journal
A vintage grunge themed printable journal kit that is packed with
vintage Santas and grungy vintage Christmas images. There is a
lined journal page that you can print on the back of all of your
papers and make them double sided! Perfect to organize your
Christmas pictures and memories.

There are endless possibilities on what you can do with this kit,
print as many times as you need. There are different ways to
bind the journal, we are here today to show you ours! The
best way to print these pages out is on white card stock, but
you can also use other types of papers. They are all high
resolution files and are meant to print in
excellent quality on most printers.
Now onto my Photo Album I made using the
"Christmas Gift" Printable Journal

For the front I used lace, flatbacks, Mulberry flowers, a buckle and
crysral sprays the spritzed with liguid pearls
I made a pocket using a shimmer red cardstock and then trimmed
one of the pages of the journal to make the pocket,
then used more of the journal to make tags

I fussy cut the Merry Little Christmas and added it onto a wobble,
took one of the pockets that come in the journal for more tags!!

The tags I cut from the kit... added ribbon and twine!!!

I left the left page alone to use for journaling while I
took another poket that comes with the kit for more tags

The back of the pocket is as pretty as the front so rather then
gluing the poket on a page I binded it onto the rings in the album!

Added a mat also using the paper in the Christmas Gift Journal kit,
Mulberry flowers, leaves, pearl embellies and spritzed with liquid pearls!!

Here is the coin envelope I added brads and twine to, to make a closure.

Added another mat, and left the page on the
right blank to also use for journaling.

And.... here is the back cover... I just added
lace and flatbacks for some texture and binded it with wire
using my cinch.. In addition I also disteressed with whole album with
 Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo distressing ink!!!Hope you enjoyed my
project today... I really enjoyed making this and I really think I
will be adding even more to it! The possibilities are endless when
creating with these printables... check out my tutorial on it later
in the month and be sure to come back tomorrow for another
project using these BEAUTIFUL printables!!!
Now onto more info for you about the journal :)
