I had made one for her before but had to scrap it because I ruined it by punching the holes for the binding with my Bind it all wrong. INSERT CHOICE WORDS HERE!!! Well I replaced my BIND IT ALL with a Cinch and lets just say the words that are used in my scrap haven are a little more G rated. Now...I did practice and thought I had it all figured out with what I was doing and I did still make a boo boo but I figured I could live with it and Emma would be ok with it as well. She says there is no mistake in paper crafting....well she may think differently once she looks my book over! I love the Cinch much better but I have to say the bind it all squeezes the binding together much better so there are pro's and con's to both. The pros out weigh the cons for me.
The first book had alot of red because I know she loves red. But when I had to do it all over again I chose to use my Momenta Kaleidoscope paper pack. It is AWESOME paper. The weight of it is like good wallpaper and I love the texture. The colors I knew would all coordinate so it made making it much easier. I used my beautiful Timeless Twine in Aqua. I added a cute "Hello Kitty" charm from "The Charm Store 24/7 on facebook. I cut about 5 of each layer of the Hello kitty and make it almost like a cardboard dimensional sticker you buy (thanks to my friend Leanne for mentioning how to do this!!)
