AJ Week 3 ~ Wrapping It (Crusade 47)

This is my favourite departmental paper bag.

I make them into journal book. I recycle the products catalogue as the inner page.
Tuck in all my favourite wrapping paper, cards, envelopes, embellishment & etc...


From the right : beautiful snowman envelope that I received few years back, there is a snowman card in it.

Close up
Quote that i read, found meaningful, record it...

A very cool catalogue and card I collected during my last trip to Singapore.

I enjoy making those precious scrap into journal rather than 'dust' them into drawer.
Thank you Michelle for this new series prompt for new year !!!

This is such an amazing layout! Not just the cards, but the memories, the ideas--all safely layered and hidden in your journal. A real inspiration!
