Finally Did It!

I finally made one of these ADORABLE books! For a while there, Beate had a new one on her blog each day. Well, when she finally posted a tutorial to show just how easy it is to use the Bind-It-All, I decided I better just do it! You know what, it IS easy! I can't believe I just let my Bind-It-All sit there for as long as I did. Beate is really good at "motivating" you to get moving since she always has TONS of projects going at one time. When she posted those books, I was beginning to feel like a slacker! LOL Anyway, if you have a Bind-It-All that is just sitting there like mine was, check out Beate's tutorial and see just how easy it is to put one of these together! You'll find a new "favorite gift" to give! I know I have! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful and safe Labor Day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy, True Friend, Simple Serif Mini Alphabet, Karen Foster Snap Stamps Tiny Casual; Paper- Apple Cider Designer Series, Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Really Rust; Ink- Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black; Accessories- Stardust Stickles, small oval punch, Making Memories brads, round tab punch, horizontal slot punch, rust organdy ribbon, Bind-It-All, cardboard.

Charmaine, I LOVE this book. It's absolutely beautiful!
I need to make another one of those books. I love them!

Wow, I love your book! I had to get the BIA and then it sat there in the box for two weeks. I finally took it out last night and now can't find the extra stack of index cards. How did you make the butterfly? Is it transparency or vellum? Very beautiful.

Alexandra said...

Love it Charmaine! I want to make one too but I don't own the Bind It All - is it easy to use? Where do you get the coils? I think these books make perfect gifts and yours is adorable!

You did an awesome job. Between you and Beate you almost have me running to the store for that darn Bind it All! Don't that sound like a swear word, Bind it All! My mom never swore in her life but when she was really mad she would say "Oh Horseballs!" I have to tell her about this one.
