~ Bind-it-All Minibook (and 10,000 Posts Blog RAK)

08/02 Update – Zutter has chosen to show this project on their site in August!  Hooray – http://www.zutterzisters.com/InspirationStation2.html

Friends, in celebration of the impending 10,000th post on my blog, I’m having a RAK!  How can you get in on it?  Just post a comment anywhere on my blog by Friday, July 18 and I will pick two winners at random – one in the States and one International.  I’m giving away two mini Kaiser Craft wood items – one mini heart album and one tag album. 

Please don’t forget to add your Fiskateer # and State or Country listed in your profile so that I’ll know who you are! =)  If you’re not a Fiskateer, why aren’t you?  That’s okay, leave me enough information so that I’ll know how to contact you if I draw your name.  Good luck, all!


Here is my first effort using the Bind-it-All.  I had a little problem at first with getting the chipboard into the tool so that the holes would line up correctly but I think I’ve got it all straightened out (so to speak!)  This is a mini book I made for Celia, the MOTG (mother of the groom) from the wedding we attended a few weeks ago.  I’m not much of a glitter person (it gets everywhere!) but I love the Doodlebug stickers that I glittered.  It really added a little extra something.

binding, hat pin and flower detail
Stuff:  chipboard covers – Teresa Collins (for Bind-it-All); patterned paper, pearls, crystals and hat pin – Stampin’ Up!; flowers – Prima; stickers – Doodlebug; coil – Bind-it-All; ribbon – Target

  11. Nice job! I might want to get a Bind it All one day, but there are so many other projects I need to do first — like putting together my two grown sons’ scrapbook albums before I die of old age! LOL

    I have to tell you that the glitter on those stickers is just awesome. I think I might try it on some Queen&Co scroll stuff that I have. Great idea!

  12. What a lovely mini album, and congrats on hitting 10,000. Well done.
