I’m like a big furry alien…

…you’ll just have to watch the video to get that reference. Kidding aside, can you believe it is just 25 days until Christmas? There are so many things to do this month: Parties, concerts, plays, decorating, cooking, cleaning (no seriously, I do from time to time) and entertaining! Who has time to scrapbook? But what if you could put a book together cheaply, quickly and easily so you could just jot stuff in as it happens and enjoy the month guilt free? Well, my friend you can, and I’m gonna show you how!

That’s pretty chic huh? And it is made from coffee filters! I had hundreds of them left over when my coffee make broke and they do not fit my new machine. The fancy bakers twine, tags, rhinestones and other odds and ends are fromPapermart. Let me tell you folks, if they sell it they will have the best price, often times by as much as 50% so check them out if you are in need of some crafty goodness 😀

OK, folks, this is an easy project but the video is a bit long so grab your favorite beverage (Whatever you want, I don’t judge LOL), sit back and watch some scrapbook magic happen…no wait, can’t say that with a straight face…I mean, we are using coffee filters…maybe not magic per say but some darn nifty crafting!

So, are you ready to give crafting with coffee filters a try? Do you have a Bobby McFerrin song stuck in your head! well, welcome to my crazy world then!

Got questions? Leave a comment and I will get back to you. Have a wonderful weekend and til next time happy crafting!

CC&M Blog Hop Time!!!

Yippee Skippie, it is time for the Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop. If you just arrived here from Jen’s blog thanks for joining us and WOW, wasn’t her project FAB! If you are jumping in in the middle of the hop make sure you start from the beginning over at the Die Cut Diva blog…rumor has it that there is some blog candy hidden along the way 😉 Here is my Creative Cuts project, I used the Castle mini album cut from brown chipboard:

First I traced all if the pieces on to Autumn Leaves paper, trimmed them and glued them to the blank chipboard pages. Don’t forget to color the backs! Then I sanded and inked the edges, added photos, stamped images, bling and punches. I bound the book together by punching holes with my Crop a dial and inserting a cheap-o binding coil from Staples (you get 25 11″ long coils for $5!) Who need a Bind it all? OK I’d love one but it’s not in the budget so this will have to do 🙂

Now that you have seen my Creative Cuts and More mini Album (I know your disappointed that I have no candy for you 😦 ) you can hop right on over to Guest Designer Eva’s blog to see what she has in store for you. Thanks for stopping by and as always happy crafting!
