A Leather-Look Notebook for TV

Hello friends
Something a little different.....
Really hoping I get to show you this today on Create and Craft because 
it is so very simple but it looks really effective.
I've altered a normal little notebook using patterned paper, brown cardstock,  Locking Loops and the Numbers and Letters M-Bossabilities folder. 
Some inking helps the leather-look.  A great gift for a gentleman maybe. 
I'm shall be driving up to the TV studios in Peterborough nice and early this morning.
Also I believe I have another show so my times are 11am, 4pm and 6pm.
My lovely Mum is coming along to TV with me today - she keeps me going with chats, snacks and is the
best organiser in the world!

In fact I'm so grateful that  my Mum is such an organiser because on Sunday evening
I'm hopping on a train to Birmingham for a few days and leaving the running of my home,
the boys and very importantly Bella under Mum's instruction!
I'm going to be at 'Stitches' meeting up with Kim from Spellbinders and
Betina from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
I'm going to walk the floor to see what goodies are new and interesting.
I hope to bring you lots of future ideas and no doubt continue you to tempt you
with craft goody gorgeousness!

Oh yes, while I'm away if you happen to order from my Amazon shop I have eldest son on standby
to fulfil the orders so hopefully no inconvenience will be caused.
But, just in case there is a slight delay - teenage boys keep different hours to me!

Take care friends and if you have a chance, tune into Create and Craft today
and possibly drop me an email there - I love to see familiar names.

Not able to watch TV today, as I am on 'nana' duties, but I like the look of this notebook, especially as I have the embossing folder pre-ordered.

Pretty Book Christine. Will have to record your first show, but should be able to watch the other two live! Don't work too hard at the NEC.

Janice said...

Morning Christine

I have set the recorder for all your shows in case I'm unable to watch them live today. I always like to do this in case I need to rewind a demo or two!

Love your notebook, really hope you get a chance to show us all how you made it.
Wishing you a safe journey with your Mum, maybe we'll get to see her as they sometimes pan the camera around the studio!
Have a lovely day at C&C.

Have great shows and time at NEC,hugs Carole Z X

Morning Christine,
It's so frustrating , they never give you enough time to demonstrate , it must be so frustrating for you when you have taken the time to create and plan projects to inspire people!
Anyway I emailed in and will do for your TWO other shows!
Today's project is brilliant and would make a fantastic gift!
I look forward to your two other shows and I hope you have a fantastic class tomorrow, I look forward to seeing your creations.
Crafty hugs
