this is a BIA (Bind It All) project. a small notebook for a young friend friend of my son. T will be going to Connecticut to study theater/film production. she is very smart and already wrote, directed and produced a small play while in high school. T also assisted on the production of Lil' Abner, where my son played Abner.

5.25 x 3.25
NOTES were stamped with the Font-abulous clear stamp set from My Pink Stamper. the theater faces (sometimes called (Comedy and Tragedy) are from Locker Talk---image #24 with all its layers.

the ticket border is from K&CO. and the faces were stamped with an inkadinkado stamp set i own.

another view so you noticed the thickness of the notebook and the faces. i used modge podge to adhere the paper to a very thick chipboard.

this is how your BIA wires should look when closed. i still can't get a perfect "O" but i am getting much better. i really do not think you can get a perfect "O" but i keep trying. :P
T school colors are red, black and white.

thanks for stopping by and i hope this project reminds you of the dusty BIA in your closet. hehe
(that is where i found mine--LOL)

love you all and have a fab day!


  1. Very cute! I actually used by Bind It All for the first time!! It was a xmas present! And after watching the instructional DVD that came with it, I was ready. Wasn't as complicated as I thought. I'm working on a small 5-page chipboard mini-album which I hope to post very soon. Check back in a few days!--Pat N.

  2. Love the notebook! You did a fabulous job; I'm sure she'll appreciate it.

  3. What a perfectly apt gift; you've got the school colors and theater masks and tickets. This turned out beautifully. I think you did a fine job with the BIA too. I tried it once a couple of years ago...I practiced before actually binding my little book...and it still wasn't even. Yours is well-done!

  4. What a sweet gesture. Dusty BIA that I forgot about? Have you been in my craft room?! Yep, mines up there getting dusty. Whats worse, I've never used it. Great project and motivation.

  5. Cute notebook! You did a great job! Your "O" looks pretty darn perfect as well. I can never get an exact perfect "o" either.

  6. I knew this was going to be as cute and as perfect as it is when I saw the preview picture on my reading list! You always do an amazing job on your projects!

    Hugs, my friend!

  7. That is a super cute project! Thanks for the idea. I hope you had a blessed day!

  8. Oh I love this Agnes, what a great project! Love the colors and the way you decorated it. Your spirals look great! I've never used one of the binders, but you sure make it look easy and a lovely result! Hugs, J:)

  9. Oh yes thank you for the inspiration mine is collecting dust.

    Great job on your note book-looks better than store bought.

  10. This turned out great, I love the ticket border with the masks!!!

  11. LOL! That's mine--dusty, along with the Cinch that is still in the box! She will love this book :)


Have a fun day!!!
