Fun with My Bind-It-All!!!


Well, nobody even tried to guess what my new tool is!! Are you all too busy enjoying your long weekend??? Well, okay then, that's fine!! I spent yesterday working on cards for my workshop on Friday, while everyone else in my family slept in. We had a nice barbecue for supper, watched Big Brother, then Emileigh and I watched a movie and did each other's nails!! How fun!

Anyway, I must blame Beate for the fact that I HAD to have this awesome new tool!! It was her tutorial that enabled me and made my imagination start flowing with all the cool ideas of things I can make!! So I placed my order for a Bind-It-All from Scrappin' Great Deals and as usual, Sheila had my package on my doorstep in two days!! The customer service there is fabulous and she has 12 hour specials every Wednesday, so if you haven't checked her out, you need to!

So I decided for my first attempt I would follow Beate's tutorial on how to make these cute little address books! I used some spare cardboard and some recipe cards from the dollar store. I decorated it up with the designer paper and cardstock stickers from the Happy Me Scrappin' Kit and also some Soft Sky designer paper. I just LOVE the colour combo from this kit, so I used SS, Groovy Guava and Purely Pomegranate inks and ribbons to go with it. I also used my Round Tab Punch for the tabs and stamped the alphabet on them with my Classic Alphabet.



The tool itself is small and compact, so light, only 3 pounds so you can take it anywhere. It's very easy to use and I was able to punch and bind the little book in just a matter of minutes. The coils come in long packages of 6 and they will last a long time, I think. For this one, I used 3/4 inch coils and it seems to be a good size for this project and would also hold a lot more. I've also got 1/2 inch coils on order for smaller stuff.

I'm so thrilled with the way it turned out and this one is going in my Secret Pal package which I will be mailing this week. Guess what all my friends and family will be getting for Christmas this year???? Address books, birthday books, journals, little handmade scrapbook albums.....the possibilities are endless!! Heehee! So if you already have one (or if I've enabled you at all...and you end up ordering one...) I'd love to see your creations and hear any tips or tricks you might have for this tool!!
