Fun Binder album (using Maya Rd & Cosmo Cricket)

Hi Everyone – HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Another Christmas present to share today – and this one couldn’t be easier.
I was desperate to make a Christmas present for my husband, and this came down to a Christmas Eve last minute rush job!
I had some assorted odds and ends of a few early Cosmo Cricket lines I picked up from Trade Me (NZ equivalent of ebay!)
I have used Jack’s World, Cogsmo, Joy Ride and possible a couple of other bits too!
I also had a Maya Road 5×7 Chipboard album which I thought would make for an easy project.
It did make for an easy project and I am just starting to use some of their products. I LOVE the chipboard books – but each time I have had to make a new cover as there are no allowances for adding additional bulk when you cover the pages with paper.. maybe it’s just me!
I cut the papers to size, glued them on and then sanded the edges lightly for a neat finish
I have used a few of the die-cuts, chipboard pieces and stickers from the odds and ends I had – some of these lines are discontinued I think now, so it’s a great way to use up quite a bit of paper without feeling guilty!
I have a couple more albums and some baby-stuff coming up soon – I am going to be an Aunty – and I will have way more time to make bits and pieces for my new niece/nephew than I ever did for my own kids!
Any questions – just leave a comment – I would love to hear from you!
