I love new, pretty books and I’ve written quite a lot of book reviews over the years, but I have never done a video book review before… So this is a first for me, making a video about a book that I’m really excited about. But this is such a visual feast, I just had to show it to you. The book is called Collage Carnival – A Book to Colour, Cut & Paste Your Way to Creative Heaven by pattern designer Lizzie Lees.

When you see this happy yellow cover, you will probably understand why I felt so happy when I got this gem in the mail…

Collage Carneval is an activity books for grown ups (and kids) who love pretty papers, glitter, creative play and to cut and paste papers. Inside you’ll find coloring pages, patterned paper that you can pull out and use, fun illustrations and quite a few guides to make depicting collages of little bits of patterned paper.

Collage Carnival is filled with pretty papers

You can use it to make postcards, greeting cards, journal pages, wall hangings, or simply find inspiration for setting up a play date with yourself. I’m in the admire phase right now, but I would really like to use this book eventually.

And without further ado, here is the video format book review! Please let me know in the comments if you enjoyed this and would like to see more like it from me?!

I’m such a newbie at talking on video in this format, and then trying to edit it a bit to shorten it. Was it too long? Are you on YouTube yourself, and if so, are you subscribed to my YouTube channel? What kind of YouTube videos do you enjoy the most? I’m a huge fan of anything that is about journaling and notebooks, so I think that’s where I want to move my own channel too: doing some flip through videos, filming my cut and paste work, and such. :-)

Gimme feedback please, below or in the comments at YouTube. Thanks!
