I think you will soon get the idea of my 12 Days project...I don't imagine this is a new idea!!

I decided to make a fat book...
using 6x6 squares of chipboard.

Today I am going to show you the front cover and page 1!

Each page was covered with papers from Lelli-bot Gothic Grunge collection
and then embellished in various ways.

The front cover uses Smeared Ink's Christmas from Occasions Grumpies
coloured with Promarkers and glitter and distressed with Tim Holtz' tea dye.
I added some glitzy letters...here's a first peek:

And a first glimpse of Page One...On the first day of Creepmas my true love sent to me...
A Raven in a Dead Tree!


I used Tim Holtz 'Tree' die to cut the tree and a Sizzix 'Bird' for the Raven.
Instead of 'Caw, Caw' the Raven says 'Eek, Eek'!
This SU 'Eek' stamp I was very pleased to recieve as part of a grab bag prize
 from Shoni Matney in 31DOH!


See you for Day 2!!
Happy Blogging and Hopping!

  4. Can not read your post without adding the music in my head.
    The Grumpie tangled in lights is perfect for the cover.
    Also makes me think of the parady version of 12 days.
    Beautifully accented raven.
