Countdown Until Christmas Calendar...

Isn't this the cutest? I totally lifted it from Amy Keller, a sister CTMHer. I can honestly say that hers is much better than mine, but I still like how mine turned out. This is my first time using my Bind-It-All and I definitely need some more practice working with it. But at least the 'first-time jitters' are out of the way and I can and will use it again. I've had my BIA since August and hadn't used it yet... so thanks Amy!

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
2 - 5x7" pieces of chipboard (from the LSS)
Creative Basics Evensong B&Ts
White Daisy, Cranberry and Olive C/S
New England Ivy, Cranberry and Olive inks
Olive grosgrain ribbon (to attach the front and back at the bottom, so it doesn't slide all the way open)
Chocolate Alphabet Small stamp set
December Word Puzzle stamp set
Tiny Typewriter Alphabet stamp set
Red and clear sparkles
Scallop circle Nestabilities
Scallop edge punch (SU)
Bind-It-All (Zutter)
BIA 1/2" silver coil (Zutter)

Very cute, Vicki! I have a BIA and really like it. I don't use it as often as I should. I might have to try this one. TFS!

This is a cute idea!

What a great idea! I really, really, really (did you get that?) want a BIA. It's on my Christmas list for my hubby this year. We'll see.

Thanks for always sharing such great artwork. You're so creative!!

This is great Vicki! I've been wanting a Countdown to Christmas "something" but not sure what. Now I am inspired to create my own! I know better than to think it will happen this year but this is definately going in my "to do" file. Thanks!
