11 Zutter Projects for 2011 Blog Hop!

Zutter 11 for '11 Blog Hop
Welcome to the 11 Zutter Projects for 2011 Blog Hop!
We thought we would kick off the new year with some Bind-it-All yumminess and project inspiration!  Join us on a journey with 11 projects from the Zutter Zisters Design Team to get your creative juices flowing and your Bind-it-All cranking up for crafty goodness!  Leave a comment on this blog and each of the other blogs for a chance to win a Zutter Supply goody package.

The project here is a really simple, super fast 4X6 mini album filled with blank pages to keep me focused on my never-ending to-do list! Gonna start the new year organized....a project like this takes no time at all and takes only a few supplies - many of which you probably have lying around or can be re-purposed from scraps and leftovers!




I used Zutter 4X6 chipboard covers, 3/4" Antique Silver owire, and a bit of embellishments and voila!

This idea is great and it got me to thinking - my hubby wants a journal type book to throw into his lunchbox for work - I have very thin 4x6 sheets of metal meant for scrapbooking- it would give a 'construction' look (he's a welder)
Thanks for the inspiration!
