No, YOU Rock!

Having fun playing with my new Bind It All! I made a little mini scrapbook in shades of purple and a bound Post-It Note holder in red. Both books have acrylic covers that are re-mastered pieces from toy packaging or stamp set boxes. Every time I see a piece of that acrylic cover on a toy package, I cut it off and put it in a basket near my Big Shot. My favorite thing to do with those pieces of acrylic is to run them through the Big Shot and create fun die cut shapes. But for these projects, I cut them with my Table Top Cutter to create covers.

For the Just Jawing' mini scrapbook, I made a 5x5 acrylic cover for the front and back. On the front piece of acrylic, I stamped the stars image and sentiment piece from Just Jawing in StazOn Jet Black ink. The inside pages have some layers and punches and Jumbo Eyelets tied with ribbon to coordinate.

This Post-It Note booklet has an acrylic cover with a wrapped piece of stamped and embossed cardstock. The sentiment strip is adhered to the front cover and then another piece of cardstock 'backing' is adhered to the inside cover to hide the adhesive. I rounded the corners of the acrylic cover with the 3/16" Corner Rounder. I covered both sides of a 4" chipboard coaster with some (retired) designer series paper using the Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue and sanded the edges and corners with a Sanding Block. Then the Post It Notes are adhered to the back using the Tombow Mono Multi adhesive. I tied off the binding coil with a few pieces of ribbon. All it needs it a mini pen to finish it off.
