I can't believe I finally bought a binder - and not just a binder.. but The Cinch!!
I'm so excited! So much new styles for making journals and planners! Yay! I'm twice happy because I bought a used one so it wasn't that much expensive! Well of course buying used things has faults.. what kind of ones? For example, my binder smells awfully.. yes it does o.O it has an awful cigarette smell, and I can't get rid of it. I used a lot of different liquids etc. but it didn't help.. I'm just curious how much a person smoked near this binder, that this smell is so strong! Ehh.. but like I said it's the risk of buying used things! :))
Of course a day after I have received it I couldn't resist and I tried to make a small planner which I had in my plans for a while now.. I have to admit, using a binder isn't that easy! I have to practice a lot more before I start selling some binded journals :)
I was in love with this technique from the moment I saw it on pinterest.. lovely!
I used scrapbooking papers from ILS for the main cover and some other papers for the separating cards :)
On the inside of the main cover you can see a small envelope decorated
with some washi tape ♥.. and a sticker witha a beautiful quotation..
Everything else like in all of my planners, some paper (but this
time recycled checked pages) and separating cards.
Binders are super useful when talking about recycling some old school notebooks, I had a lot.. really a lot of old notebooks from my previous schools and when I ripped of all the blank pages I couldn't believe that I have them more than 600! I can bind so many journals from them instead of throwing them out! :)
Probably I won't sell any notebooks with recycled pages because they are a bit crooked, I'll make some new notebooks for my university instead of buying new ones! ;d
What do you think? Would you like to have some binded planers/journals? Something different (on my blog) but you have to develope, right?! ;d
Have a nice Sunday!
