JYC 2009: Day 13

Today's prompt is about the sound of Christmas: carols, song, etc. So I started by making a pocket where I'll add a cd with my favorite Christmas songs. In order to make the pocket I used the Martha Stewart "Flower Bed" deep edge punch and sanded the cardstock a lot because I wanted an old, distressed look.
The backround paper with the notes is not from the Basic Grey "Figgy" collection that I use for this album but from the Cosmo Cricket "Jolly by Golly" collection.
I printed some verses from Sinatra's "White Christmas" and used an old, blunt blade in my Fiskars trimmer to cut the lines because I wanted to tear the paper a bit, I didn't want it to be clean cut. I also used distress inks.
Next step I used a Dovecraft stamp with the little carolers and colored it with my copics and then cut it with a round nestabillity die. Then I made the journaling spot and added the stamped image on top.
The tree is a die cut shape from plain chipboard, it is from the Basic Grey "Undressed Chipboard Holiday" pack. I colored it with distress inks, I also used Sakura "Stardust" pens for the details. Then I wrote all over it the lyrics from the greek carol that children sing on Christmas Eve.
For the title I used ready made Basic Grey alphabet stickers, I can't remember the name of the collection, and layout ready!
