Tina's Note Book

I have been creating a lot of items lately!  So much so that I have a back log of things to show you.  In fact this piece was created last month for the Secret Leprechaun exchange at SCS. I made this as an altered item for Tackertwosome (Tina).  Her favorite color is purple so I put this together as my first attempt at using my Bind It All.  If you haven't seen this product in action, check out this video.  Nope, I don't work for the company but I do like this tool a great deal. It is a sturdy tool that should last for a very long time.
As you can see, I did not add a lot of dimension to the front of this piece. I thought it was the perfect size for tucking down in a purse and too many things sticking out of the front would be a problem in a purse.  Okay, I know I got a little happy with the bling. I don't know what came over me!  I just kept adding more! Crystal Effects was used on the initial and to adhere the bling to the cover. The metal corners I picked up while in Ireland a few years ago and the embossed metal behind the initial came from our home renovation. Nothing like recycling trash now is there?  I found this long strip of aluminum on the ground one day last fall.  The contractor made some new flashing and this was the part that he cut away.  I thought is was pliable enough that it might work in my die cut machine.  You got it, that's a cuttle bug embossing folder that I used.

I love it, great way to re-use material. The Bind It All is on my "need to get" list. I've only been to 2 crops and I saw it in action. I agree it's great.
Love the little loops you made to hold the pen, just great!

This is so really pretty! I love the use of the ribbon on the bottom to hold a pen. I have a die that I'm thinking of turning upside down and doing this with. Great idea. Thanks for sharing wiht us, love your great blog,I'm always inspired when I visit!

That turned out great! I had been wanting a bind it all, but I settled for a binder from the office supply store that uses those little plastic binders (you've seen them for cookbooks)
Have a blessed Sunday,
