Gluebook and Travels

You may recall not too long ago I started Mary's Christmas Gluebook class (which by the way you can still sign up for). Being the over achiever I am I decided to make a Vintage and a Retro version. Well I've managed to get the pages done for the first, though I still need to "bind". Let me know what you think - I tried to use as much "original" material as I could (primarily my stash of old Christmas postcards)...
This is the Back and Front cover...
Pages 2 and 3 - I have the original photo of the lovely lady on the right - this is a scan I made of her.
My centerfold - pages 4 and 5. The Christmas definitions came from an old Universal Encyclopedia.
I like how pages 6 and 7 turned out - splitting the graphic and framing each piece seemed to work really well! All in all I am pretty happy how it turned out (despite all the glue on fingers, in my hair and on my countertop...)
Hubby and I are off to Canada for American Thanksgiving (yep, we celebrate both) so I'll be offline a little bit. Not many more artsy things planned for the rest of the year - but plenty of ideas (and things I do need to get done) starting in January! Safe travels to those of you on the road this holiday. Cheers, Jewels


  1. Have a great holiday Julie, and relax. We are off to Chicago to visit our youngest son at law school. We will celebrate with him. Hope that we both have clear traveling weather.

  2. These pages are SUPERB, Jewels. All of them are so interesting and well balanced, both in those gorgeous images and lovely vintage colours.

    Happy Thanksgiving!


  3. Lovely as usual. Joanna has described your work very well. I like the clean fresh look. The images are superb. I love the little girls walking in the snow. Have a great vacation, Jewels. Hugs. Beth

  4. Just plain eye candy, Julie! Your work is wonderful. Have a great Thanksgiving and a fun and relaxing break.
