Bind It All!


At last! Some time to play! I have had a REALLY bad week, plus I was really busy so that = no play time for me all week! But today I was inspired. We were gone all morning and I came home and found that I had received my new "Bind it all!" Yippeeeeee! I put it to the test this afternoon, and finished the book this evening.

I cut pieces of matboard for the covers and a piece of canvas to the size of the cover.

I painted it, stamped it and collaged on some handpainted papers and added a touch of Caran D'Ache crayons (my favorite!). It needed more so I added some ribbon to the binding.

I can tell I am going to have fun with this machine! It cut through the covers with ease and was so easy to use from start to finish. This thing is just totally awesome.

This cool! I haven't heard of the "bind it all" before, but it sounds like it's more versatile than the coil binder that I have.

The book looks awesome, Kelly. Glad you like your binding system. An idea for you...I have a couple of binding systems, and I take the front and backs off cereal boxes, coke cases, etc. etc. and use them for covers to bind specialty recipes...i.e., drinks in Coke covers, breakfast recipes in cereal covers, etc. Hugs, Gayle.

I apologize for referring to you as Kelly...not a bad reference tho, but not you...lol...sorry about that...I should have been more careful. Tired out from a 3-day scrapbooking crop has probably put me in a numbed state...sorry about that, Kristy.
