Blog-iversary Celebration Day 2

Welcome to day two of my blog-iversary celebration!   Today's blog-iversary gift is a complete Yourstory set - pictured above.   I do want to assure the lucky winner that this IS a NEW set, though I confess the outside of the box may leave you with questions. 

Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned how Duncan the Wonder Dog thinks that all deliveries to our house are for him?  Yes, he did indeed attack the box in which the Yourstory arrived.  Of course when I told him that he was being a bad dog, he gave a blank look as if he had no idea what that meant!  Probably because most of the time I assure him that is a sweet boy, a handsome boy, a good boy..... This concept of "bad dog" had no frame of reference.  Sigh....

So why should you be interested in the Yourstory set?  Because you can do two awesome things with the Yourstory.  You can laminate documents, cards, tickets and other memorabilia for your scrapbooks  - AND - you can bind books!!   

Examples of great uses for this machine:

  • My mother and my mother-in-law both like to receive 8 x 8 inch themed scrapbooks and with the Yourstory they can now receive customized bound books!!!  
  • Think of the great customized teacher gifts - a photo book featuring highlights from the year!
  • Theme books - prom book, dance recital book, baseball team book, etc
  • AND - Girlfriend make & takes!!!

My scrappy girlfriends had no problems assembling five double sided pages (for a total of ten pages) with elements from the Imagine's Lori's Garden cartridge and binding them in Yourstory chocolate 4 x 6 inch books.
