12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 1~~Bind it All

Speedy the Cat at Mark's Finest Papers likes to get a head start on special Christmas gifts and memories for friends and family. He gathered the design team at Mark's Finest Papers to bring you 12 days of exciting paper crafting gift ideas to get that holiday mojo flowing. The hop runs for 12 consecutive days, Oct 17-28! Begin your holiday hop at Speedy's home base, the Mark's Finest Papers blog and relax with a cup of eggnog (or sprig of catnip, your choice) as Speedy leads you though a short, daily hop. You'll find your holiday paper crafting ideas and supplies at Mark's Finest Papers.

This is my Bind it All project closed.  I covered chip board with designer paper from my stash and used "Little Birds with Big Mouths" as my focal image. 

This is the inside of my project.  I bought a calendar and notepad from the dollar bin at M's and put it on the inside.  Since I used chip board, I can keep this in my purse and it won't get all dog eared. 

My second Bind it All project is a Christmas theme



This is a small note pad that I stamped with Versa Mark ink using the Stamp set "Cardinals in Winter" and heat embossed in Silver. I used 4x4 inch coasters and covered them inside and out in Dark Night Navy by Mark's Finest Papers.  I stamped each of the inside pages with the small cardinal in night of navy ink.

Awesome work on both these wonderful projects....love that you decorated the inside of the second one and the fact the first will stay "nice" in your purse!

Both projects are really nice, Patty; but I especially like that first one. You could get a whole lot of use out of it -- all year long!

Those are so pretty! What a great collection of notebooks and bind it all projects, I like the paper choices, and the silver embossing on the first one! That stamp looks great in outline form, doesn't it?
