Teacher's Bind It All Book

Emily and I worked on this Bind It All book this week for her teacher who is retiring. Each page features a personal note from a student in her 8th and 9th period Language Arts class. Emily designed everything, and she had my help putting it all together.


This is the cover. It features a My Mind's Eye Daily Dose journaling card with Making Memories tiny alphas. There are also two Petaloo flowers with a Making Memories button center. The gorgeous paper is also My Mind's Eye. Some of the ribbons are American Crafts.


The inside cover features a couple of sentiments from an upcoming retirement set of printable images from The Cutting Cafe'.

This is the first page in the book. Emily typed up the information, and we printed it directly on the My Mind's Eye patterned paper. The circular sentiment is a cardstock sticker from my stash.

This is the inside of the last page. This is another sentiment from the upcoming retirement set of printable images from The Cutting Cafe'.

I love this sentiment! This is also from that retirement set at The Cutting Cafe'. This is on the backside of the last page of the book.

This is inside the back cover. Once again, an awesome retirement sentiment from The Cutting Cafe'. Hopefully this is true for Emily's teacher! Retirement is such a milestone, and I hope she enjoys her free time! Emily did a great job with this book, and I hope her teacher LOVES it! How could she not? It's gorgeous!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!

My Dear, Dear Friend,

Your comment on my blog sure put a smile on my face today! I loved how you used the baseball phrase...that was so clever!

Tell Emily that this book is definitely a "Grand Slam" in my eyes. :-)))) Her teacher is going to hold this book close to her heart for all eternity. What a precious, precious gift!
