I've been working on my new J-Rev journal here at my desk with what is ON my desk. I'd show you a closer view of the page but the text is an email from someone super cool who might not want her private email to me blogged all over the place. I will say this tho, had it not been for super cool emailer, we'd never have known the secret Journal Revolution lingo going on in Canada. Blogger Pals, we love you. Your emails make our days great!
So anyway, you can see I secured the text to the page with my favorite chemical filled supply: Matte Finish Magic Tape. This stuff really is magic. I love it. I buy it by the case and keep it in every room... just like peanut M&Ms. A while ago I bought the Bind-It-All because I wanted to bind my own journals. I do not know what I was thinking. I bound the J-Rev journal myself and in the time it took me to do that, I could've gone to Barnes & Noble and read every magazine while enjoying a Tall Passion Iced Tea and a scone, bought a journal, then come home. I could not for the life of me figure out how to get my paper punched so that the holes were centered or not running off the pages. There should be a ruler attached to the machine or a way better slide guide for placing the paper. I now know why every journal I have seen bound with this machine is tiny~ it's just easier to make a tiny journal than figure out how to punch the holes in a good way. So, in the process of binding this journal, I decided I like my binding off center and weird, and that is what I got. Now that I have changed my expectations, I am very happy with it! The fun thing is each page is a different kind of paper and that is what I really wanted.
If you have the Bind-It-All and you know secret tricks to using it on paper larger than 4"x4" without a degree in Engineering, can you tell me?
