Working the Christmas fabric book

Remember those fabric images I was cutting out and sewing the other day?  I've gotten a little further with them:
I've decided to make them into a fabric book with pockets to hold Christmas-themed tags I've collected over the years!  This will be the cover -- lots of silvery details.
This page uses another fabric scrap collage I made a while back, but never used.  Sewn to some soft, fuzzy white fabric, I think it will be such a pretty pocket!  And, even though it's not Christmas-y, it fits nicely in with the theme.
This page consists of a recycled piece of crazy quilted fabric (an early attempt of mine...) which creates another nice pocket when placed over a fabric panel.  I added one of the fabric images to be sewn onto the front.
And this deer scene will eventually be the back cover.  I trimmed the fabric panel with gimp and some silver beads sewn on in rows.  I'm having a lot of fun with this little project and hope to finish it in time to enjoy it this holiday season!

Oh I love your little Christmas fabric pieces.
I looked on Pink Studio and guess she doesn't sell those any longer?
I tried to use my small printer with no results LOL

Your crazy quilt page is wonderful also

This will be such a treasure to look at over the years. Your lace and collage and CQ pages with pockets is delightful. Christmas Bliss...

What a great idea to round up all those tags and incorporate them as part of this fabulous piece. Nice idea and nice work Laurie.
