I know the Bind-It-All is for BINDING books and such but like Alton Brown I don't like uni-taskers in my scrapbook room (he doesn't like them in his kitchen. He is the host of the Food Network show “Good Eats”). So the Bind-It-All (BIA) HAS to be more than just a BINDING tool for me!! And luckily it is!
I've been playing with this “eating away” technique for a few months now, where I use the BIA to “eat away” at the edges of paper to create an interesting effect. The first page I did this on was this page about Matt I did as a class at Desert Scrapper's Retreats in Palm Desert in September:
Everyone has been buying all of these Martha Stewart border punches to make a “spooky fence”. Well, not me. Though I love Martha's borders, I could not think of something else to use that spooky fence for besides Halloween. And that would make it a uni-tasker so it's a “no-no”.
The full product supply list and details can be found on the Zutter Zisters website in my gallery.
I actually lifted this layout design from one Anne Fisher and I designed for our “Twenty Pages In A Day” class earlier this Fall. So that makes two lessons for today:
- Don't buy uni-taskers. Luckily, the Bind-It-All is a multi-tasker!
- If a layout design ain't broke, keep using it!
Hope you enjoy your turkey day!! It is officially TG right now but for me, it is still “Wednesday” so I am going to call it a night and get ready to gobble gobble gobble up some pie and smoked turkey (mmm) tomorrow!! Catch you all later!!
