Guest Book and Pen

This is a book I created from cover to cover with the aid of a great little machine called the Bind-It-All. The Zutter Bind-It-All is very compact and binds any project, such as books, post-cards, pictures, envelopes, etc. A close friend of mine bought the Bind-It-All for me. Can you believe that? What a sweetheart she is! Thank you over and over again, Alicia!

You may have to zoom in to see the rhinestones in the center of the large flowers, as well as the little green “leaves” I stamped with half a piece of a pencil eraser.

Guest book- Created by Michelle Hoffman
Stamp set: En Francais background stamp, Fabulous Flowers, Schoolbook Serif Alphabet
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red CS

Here is a close up of the matching pen I made. I ended up removing the bow and replacing it with a long piece of Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon which was attached to the book so that the pen could not be lost.
