This is a great Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop week!!! It's beautiful colors, AND I got to play with a new tool!!!

Hello hoppers from Helen's blog!!! Luv what she did with these great colors! I like them alot!!!

So here is the inspiration for this week:

And here are the Stampin' Up! colors:

Now my creation:

Yup, it's a bit different this week! See, my good friend Amanda from 
Our Crafty Playdate (keep hoppin'-you'll see her design!!) hooked me up with a great deal on the Bind It All! I've wanted one of these forever! They aren't cheap, but I got a great deal!! Now I know that's not Stampin' Up!, but it's a great tool to use with all my 
Stampin' Up! products!!! I love to make books, and now I can bind them very easily!! It's highly recommended!  So no card this week-a cute little book instead!

Here are a couple of other views:

The back of the book!
I used my Kinda Ecclectic stamp set! It's quickly becoming one of my favorites!!! I just love that starburst in it! And the leaves are so perfect!!! I think it worked well with these colors! I kept the sentiment design simple 
(Chalk Talk of course!) because the leaves were kind of busy! I'm not one to use tons of stuff! If you follow, I'm fairly CAS (clean and simple!) I like a clean look!

The inside pages!
I thought the butterflies added a cute "tab" effect to the pages. A little different.It can be used as a journal, diary, date book, address book, note book, whatever. They can divide the sections. 

I realized that the o-wire I used was a bit small for the amount of pages. Next time for this size book I'll use a larger wire for easier turning, but it still works fine. Looks nice I think.  I'll be using my new Bind It All quite a bit I think. Plus, it's pink!!!

So keep hoppin' on over to Liz's blog then keep going! These are some very pretty colors, and I know you will love all the great creations!!!

Until next time!

Happy Stampin'!!!
