I have the blue old version BIA and I really love it!!! The pink new one has better figures than the one I have and yes it's worth every penny!!!! LoL There are so many things you can do besides binding just a book!!!! You can can make so many different sizes of binding for planners, calendars, recipes, home decor, brag books, and so much more!!!!! I hope this answers your question!!!
Happy Scrapin!!

I have a bind it all - the new pink version and although I haven't been able to craft so much lately I absolutely love it! I found it very easy to use and I can't wait to start making lots of cool stuff with it!

One tip that was shared with me was that you can make mini books from beer mats. Obviously acid free ones if you can get ahold of some in a craft shop but I went and made one using regular beer mats for a present for someone I work with. All you do is cover them in PP and embellish to whatever theme you want and then bind it! I tied lots of ribbon around the metal spirals and it was done. My friend loved it so much, I really wish I'd gotten pics of it to put on here!!

Go for it - it's great, especially if you like making your own albums - you can make them from absolutely anything!

In a word - YES!!

Its worth it.
Its easy to use!

It costs a bit for the machine but I've made so many gift mini albums with it that its definately made up for it. You can bind just about anything with it.

Thaiti gave you great pictures of some of the products. The Bind it All website has some video tutorials that answered any of my questions.

Its one of my fav - have to have - tools!!
I have some examples in my gallery if you want to see - I just entered their Summer Challenge - and was one of the winners - I've never ever won anything before - but I digress - only to tell you it makes awesome stuff!

If you like making books it is a MUST have and it is really easy peasy to use! Also you get a dvd inside to show you how to.

It is one of the best tools I have.

I love mine. I don't use it much as I don't make many books. BUT I bought it for the specific purpose of making ONE book a year (to match 10 others that I've already made each year) and it works for me. I just don't make many mini albums or books. Most of the time mine sits on the desk looking pretty

The new Hobby Lobby in Pa is about two hours away from me!!!!!! I wish I could upgrade to the pink one and use a coupon!!!!! The drive is a bit much just for a BIA!!!!! My drive to NYC is shorter than that can you imagine!!!! Wow!!!!!!

How do you choose what size binding wire to use? I like to make smaller "tag" books and have decided to purchase the BIA, I just don't know what sizes to get to start.
