I'm especially fond of the back covers. The nutrition chart on the cracker notebook, in particular, makes me smile:
Where's the Inky touch? On the inside pages! The stamp images are 10851E Cracker Me Up and 10855E Hiya Cookie:
Besides making all sorts of fun (and handy) notebooks, there are tons of other bound items you can create. You'll find links to several ideas in the right-hand column of this blog. Even better, our Inky designers have been merrily punching pages and inserting coils, working on projects that we think you'll really enjoy!
