Bind a Jounal

Hi everyone, Nancy here today to share another fun project I made with my Bind- it-All.

Living in Northern California, my husband and I occasionally get the opportunity to try wines (I think the nearest winery is only 7 miles, and one of our favorites is just 15). But keeping them straight; remembering which wines we have had and would like to buy, and which we are not interested in purchasing can be difficult.  I decided to create a small wine journal to save our tasting notes and wine labels.

I chose to use the 7.5x5 Acrylic covers due to their light weight and beautiful translucent properties.  I kept the cover fairly flat as I wanted to be able to toss the journal into my purse if needed.  I really love how you can see the front page of the journal through the cover, showing off the Webster's Pages papers I have had in my stash for quite some time.
 I created a little pocket on the first inner page to hold bits of paper for our notes.
 Here is one of the labels we saved with the tasting notes next to it.
One-half inch silver 0-Wires hold my journal together nicely.
And of course, I couldn't resist tying some scraps of trim to the o-wires to coordinate with the Webster's Pages papers.  Definitely a favorite technique for me.
Thanks for stopping by the Bind-it-All blog today.
