Beyond the Book

I am a mini album addict. In fact, when I first bought my blue Bind It All several years ago...that's why I did! To make my own little books to gift away and share. Since that time, my BIA has become the staple of my scrappy space. I've learned to create a variety of projects with this great tool: books, home decor and, most recently...layouts.

Now I must admit, the idea to incorporate an interactive element into a layout isn't new to me or many of us. But, for me, using my BIA was. I got the idea from Zutter's own Nan Paturzo...she used it to create an amazing two page layout. You can see it in the soon to hit the stores, Bind-It-All Around The World Idea Book.

Here's the layout I created. Thanks Nan, for the inspiration! Hope you will share your projects with us. You can find out all the details on this project in the design team galleries at Zutter Zisters and how to submit to the Inspiration Station!

What a lovely tribute, just beautiful! You have inspired me to get together with my sisters and create one for our mother and father who passed away 9 and 10 years ago. We have so many photos and small items belonging to them, but we have had a hard time deciding what to do with all of them. This is the perfect solution - thank you so much.
