Bind-it-All Christmas Shopping List

Today I had a little bit of time to play with my new toy, my Bind-it-All. Yes I'm happy that I bought it, the first project I made was this Christmas shopping list book, and it was sooo much fun to make. I thought what better way to kick off the holiday season when it comes around then to be organized with my thoughts of gift giving. On the inside I put a tab for my husband, my kids, other family and a section for notes in the back. I was inspired by two women when I put this together, one of course was Beate who gave an awesome tutorial on how to make one of these books and the other was Tammy on her blog Creative Juices, I really liked the way she colored the Season of Joy stamp on her Deck the Halls card.
Its hard to see but the background of the real red card stock has been stamped with the pointsettia stamp from the SOJ stamp set and the center of the O from the JOY has been popped out and has a rhinestone brad in the center.
Supplies: Season of Joy Stampin' Up stamp set, Snap Stamps by Karen Foster, Cardboard, Lined Index Cards, Tab Punch, Circle Punch, Stampin' Up markers, Ribbon, Rhinestone Brad, Pop Dots, and of course my new BIA. Colors: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White.
