Ding Dong!

ZZproject20810

Oh Yeah! A bit of early planning from me today ... well ... I say early ... this book has been in the planning stage for about three years :0) So although it is early for Christmas 2010 .... technically it is very late for Christmas 2008 or maybe 2007!

I am finally being brave and using up all my scraps of the Cosmo Cricket 'Be Good' papers! I LOVE those papers ... a lot ... and each year I look for something I am going to like more and each year ... I still LOVE the 'Be Good' range the most! Why ... Oh Why don't they make them any more??? I know I am not the only one that loves them ...ZZproject2b0810

It's like when you fall in love with a certain lipstick or blusher ... it becomes your all time favourite but when you go in and try and buy some ... they have stopped making it! You get that ... 'Well nobody wanted it anymore' response from the counter assistant ... and there is a little voice screaming inside you saying ... WELL ACTUALLY I BLOOMIN' WELL DID!

ZZproject2a0810 Anyways enough of my moaning ... I had great fun making this ... I used the 6X6" craft covers from Zutter ... my trusty Bind-It-All ... the aforementioned papers ... Darkroom Door Christmas Stamps ... Ranger Distress Inks as water colours ... some ribbon and a few jingley bells ... so it even sounds like Christmas :0) Ooops I nearly forgot the PaperArtsy Poinsettias and the triple embossing but not the Lord Tim of Holtz Grungepaper ... you know Tim ... the man that can wing walk without a harness or a plane while making chocolate eclairs with just an ornate frame and one brad!

Right-Ho then ... I am away to make stuff ... not sure what yet ... but I am sure I will think of summink! What you up to???

C'mon spill ...

This is wonderful, Linda! I completely agree with you on the CC Be Good papers, I have been using mine bit by bit, hoarding as much as possible! You'll just have to keep this book for yourself and enjoy using it with the yummy paper!

Rosie said...

LOVE IT and those papers look fab. You've reminded me that I should begin to think about an album for my Christmas art journal ... it's nearer than we think!!

hahahaha
Why don't you start a campaign to get them to bring the papers back - well I suppose you're too busy to do that really, but perhaps a Facebook campaign wouldn't be too time-consuming?
Gorgeous book, love the colour :-)

Love it Linda, I NEED a bind it all, although they seem to be as rare as hens teeth!! Well in northern Ireland anyhow!
Even tinternet isn't throwing any up!! You must be starting a craze Linda!
Was at my local c/shop to buy some coloured card stock. Had come upon papertray ink card stock. Loved all the colours, matching buttons and ribbons but just silly money on shipping, emailed them to see if they could consider a uk distributor!!
Rant over! Lol well you did ask!!!!!
