Look what I got!

This weekend was the Rubber Stamp Expo in Del Mar. I helped out Johanna this weekend by helping with the hosted make 'n takes. It was a lot of fun! I even had time to shop and this is what I got. It's a personal binding system. It is very small. Weighs about 3 lbs and seems easy to use. It will cut holes in just about anything. Well, not wood or metal, but most cardstock and chipboard, I think. I got it for $53. What a deal, huh? This will make it so much fun when doing classes. I'm not a big ribbon person, so the books I used to make and bind with ribbon are now passe. Oh, I think I might tie a ribbon or two on the spiral bindings now and then. Look at all the cool things this binding system can do. I can't wait to make my first book. I read on a website that sells these systems, that it will even cut through CD's. Wouldn't it be cool to alter CD's and bind the CD's together with the wire binding? I think it would be cool! I'm off work tomorrow and I plan on making a little something with my new Bind-It-All by Zutter. Stay tuned.

I can't wait to see what you do with this machine! I'm so jealous! I heart all office products that you can use in crafts!
