Wish List-Week 6 - Blog Candy Wrap-up!

Good Morning,

This is the last week for ideas for your wish list as well as a last chance at the growing blog candy. Be sure to read to the end as there is a twist today!

Today I thought I would share one of my larger toys I like to play with. It's the Bind-It-All machine by Zutter.

The Bind-It-All is great for making books, journals, calendars and a number of other crafty projects. It's lightweight but can punch chipboard, acrylic, light weight metal and can punch as long as 12". It comes complete with DVD and written picture instruction booklet. It is very easy to use.

The o-wires come in a variety of sizes and colors to match your projects. As well you can purchase protective pages if you wanted to bind your own scrapbook.

Here is a great article featuring the Zutter Bind-It-All and it also compares it to other similar machines.

If you think you might be interested in one of these you can contact Deborah over at Fargo Cat Shops or call 902-923-2835 for a price and delivery availability.

Also if you're still looking for other great gift ideas be sure to check out Marilyn's blog. She's been showcasing some  Tim Holtz products and there's some great Christmas tags.
Here is a project I made last night with the Bind-It-All. A cute little recipe book just waiting for your favorite recipes.

My chipboard was extra heavy...my guillotine cutter had trouble cutting it but the Zutter had no problems punching the holes for the wires. Once I had the chipboard covered I sanded it and then distressed it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Victoria Velvet. The letters are cut from the Cricut using Base Camp.

The inside pages were stamped and I left the backside of the page empty for notes or extended instructions.

Seeing how we are on a food/recipe kick my blog candy for today is a stamp set that fits the celebratory season.  As a added bonus I will also add my recipe book to the blog candy.


Here is all the blog candy you are playing for. Today when you leave your comment I want you to tell me what your favorite crafty item is. If you've been playing along you should have your name entered six times if you left comments each Wednesday for the past six weeks. There's still time to go back and comment. The Blog Candy will remain open until Friday midnight and then I will draw one name from all the entries. Be sure to check the blog to see if your name was drawn and claim your prize!

Thank you for all your comments and Good Luck!

Yvonne

Hi Yvonne! OMG...love the recipe book....wonderful! I have seen the bind it all before, but thought it would be too complicated to be honest. I think it's wonderful that you're adding it to the candy! Thanks!
Hhmmmm, my fave crafty item, that's a hard one! I love it all! If I only pick one it would have to be my cuttlebug. And well it would go without saying everything else in my stash!
Have a great day! Sue
