We need a little Christmas...

Hey yall!! How are you doing tonight? Good I hope! I have been working non stop for 2 days on this board book. A lady at my Mom's school ordered this one for one of their student teachers. The last name is 'Noles.' So that is what the board book spells. I also added a solid blank page on the back so she could add more pix and it helps to finish of the book. I hope you can see these pix. I had to take them inside since it is so late and I have to mail this tomorrow. It is really cute in person. I hope you can tell. If you are having trouble seeing, if you will click on the individual pix, they will come up bigger and then just hit the back button to come back to this post. Here is the whole book:

This was the second project that I used my new Bind It All on!!! I LOVE that toy!!! Brandon bought it for me for my bday this past Sunday and I am just looking for stuff to bind! It is so easy to use and fun, fun, FUN!!!!! Around the binding, I tied white toile, some red dotted ribbon, and twine.

I used the Cricut 'Joys of the Season' cartridge for most of this book. On this first page, I cut the standing Santa and used Stickles glitter glue to bling him up. All of the patterned paper on the book is from Martha Stewart Crafts.

Here is a pic taken from above the book. On each letter, I added some rhinestones for bling and some twine.

Back of page one and front of page two. I stickled the tree and added some bling to the 4 corners of the photo mat.

Back of page two and front of page three. I used some cute chocolate colored trim on my mittens. I used the 'Winter Home' Cuttlebug embossing folder on the back of page two.
Back of page three and front of page four. I used some cute ribbon that says 'holiday cookies' on the left hand side. I left is so that the recipient could slide the bottom of her photo's underneath the trim. I used my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) software for the 'sugar and spice' title.
Back of page four and front of page five. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the brown and added some more cute ribbon. The tea cup is from 'Joys of the Season' as well. I used red Stickles glitter glue on it as well.

Back of page five...I thought this would be a good place for some portrait pix. I used the Cuttlebug Snow Embossing folder. The ribbon is meant to mimic picture wire....almost like these are two photo frames hanging on a wall.
Front of page 6. I used Joys of the Season for the present and Santa hat, which are also Stickled. I also brought in some red decorative trim.
Back of Book...this phrase was cut from 'Joys of the Season' as well.
I hope that Mrs. Noles will like this book. I put a lot of time and hard work into it. Thank you all for stopping by to sneak a peek! Enjoy your weekend and Happy Scrappin'!!!
