seriously, it was really dusty, since I’m on a self-imposed mini-album hiatus poor Mr. Bind It All doesn’t get much of a work out these days.
I was organizing my craft room on Saturday (who knew I had 3 spools of dark brown thread, not me) and I needed to move Bind-It-All to make room for a newish sewing station(after all if I have three spools I should probably try and sew something.)
As I moved my Bind-It-All to its new home I was immediately struck with an idea — not for a mini-album but a way to store all of my uber fun Studio Calico stamps. Which, if the truth be told, are one of my favorite things about the kits even though I hardly ever use them. I’ve had this post by fellow SCer Reyanna rolling around in my head for a few weeks and the combination of ideas had all attempts at organization for the rest of the room coming to a halt so I could stop and make this…
This was truly an ‘all scraps on deck’ project. The covers were made with some packaging from some We R Page protectors, I misted them and the KI paper which was a green that I wasn’t in love with the started cutting apart bits and pieces of the packaging that comes with the SC stamps and wrapped a ribbon around for closure.
For the inside…
just some cheapy white cardstock, transparency sheets and again more SC stamp packaging. I adhered the plastic piece with the image that comes with the stamp to the cardstock and then put my stamps on top.
I love that they are all in one place and that the book is easy to transport, maybe now I’ll actually use them.
but at least Mr. Bind-It-All feels loved and useful again.
