I had been wanting a binding machine for like, forever.  Then I finally bought a Zutter Bind-It-All machine and I'm like, "OK, what am I gonna make with this now?"  So starting with something somewhat simple, here is my first project using my new toy, a sweet little journal....
I have to thank my Sis-in-law for so kindly allowing me to use stamps from her HUGE Magnolia stamp collection - thanks Linda!  Keep collecting so I can use them! (Ha-ha, Wink!)
