A tutorial on binding a mini and some snow..snow...and more snow.

Lots going on today. Pictures and 2 video's oh my. Its like a Friday night party.

Day 11 of my 31 Days of video's. This video is a long time coming. When I made my Vintage mini, I have a lot of requests on how I did the binding on it. I said I would do a here it is about 9 months late :)

Here are the photos of the binding. This is it normal and flat.But because the binding is wide, it can open 1/2" for each page. That way you can embellish your arse off and not have a book that looks like a "V".
We got snow again today...all day. When is spring coming? I could use some warmth and sun. I think Kristy agrees with me on this one :)

I had Friday Night Scrapbooking tonight. Sharon came by to just chat again, teehee.
Hubby and I did a bit of running around and that is about it for my day today.

Plan on having a nice relaxing weekend. I tried to upload or download a short video on blogger. It didn't happen. How do I do this. It said it was uploading, but it never stopped. Is there a trick to this?

Hope you got some creative time in today.



  1. you make me want to get the bind it all--you are such the enabler! hope you had fun at your crop--mine is coming up in 2 weeks--cant wait

    I love this binding method. I also like how you painted the edges of the chip board, so much easier than fussy cutting it.
    Thanks for the great ideas.
    I wish you lots of sun to melt that snow!

  3. Great idea for the binding and the scallop edges! Thanks for sharing your idea!

  8. Hi Tracy, after watching your videos and seeing all your wonderful creations, I am now hooked on making mini albums. Although I love making cards and paper toles,I am determined to make some of your mini's especially the toilet roll ones.
    Thanks so much for the inspiration :)

  9. Tracy,
    what a great project. I have that book and didn't want to fussy cut it either. What a great way to finish it off. I am so glad you told me the tip about giving my self a bit more binding for embellishment.;)
