I love my bind it all!

I just had to let you know how wonderful this little gal is! Ive called mine Belinda! I have a habit of naming all my tools for some reason! I know Im mad, anyhow, this little lady is my fav peice of scrapping equipment at the moment and will be for many, many months I feel!

Firstly this machine is compact and it doesn't take up a whole desk while being used. Secondly, it does both the punching and the binding and thirdly, its so easy to use, even without instructions. I have carpel tunnel and was worried that it would cause me a problem as I have had with some die cutting machines, but this little lass gives me no problems at all, even my 3 year old is able to punch the chipboard covers of a book with ease!

It has a practically fool-proof slide to adjust the settings and allows for a freestyle sort of punching, continuous punching, and depth adjusters so you can create books with pages that nestle perfectly inside the covers. For me its more useful than old robbie robo!

This is a high quality, heavy duty scrapbooking tool with a lifetime warranty. and it retails for a mere £39.99 at craftsuperstore making it a very affordable investment!

To be honest I wasnt sure that I wouldt use it that often often, but the more I think about it the possibilities are endless, it is perfect for mini albums, which I make a lot of these days.

But then ... why stop at mini albums? It is simple enough to put scrapbook pages in page protectors, decorate two chipboard covers and bind the whole set together to make custom albums! Im really keen to try scrapping in 12x6 so this little tool will give me the opportunity to without spending a fortune on albums which I think are highly overpriced!

The Bind-It-All works with cardstock, chipboard, acrylic... even as thick as a standard CD.All in all, I think it's a great product. It was easy to figure out, easy to use, and created a professional-looking binding in seconds. It's a quality tool at a reasonable price and everyone I know that has one loves it to peices too!
