Bind it all extravaganza

Recently my next door neighbor rang my doorbell and asked me if I would like to help her with some Christmas gifts. I had given away a notepad I had made as a prize during one of our monthly Pokeno games. Everyone I play Pokeno with was totally impressed. LOL. They are not crafty , they don't stamp or scrapbook so they had nothing to base their impression of them on. Lucky for me! Anyway, she wanted them to be personalized with her recipients names. I had a hard time coming up with a way to do that. I cheated and borrowed an idea from a previous project. I told her I would make them each different, no 2 alike and she liked that idea. It really only took me about 4-5 hours total to make these. I got faster as I went along. They are filled with plain copy paper that I had cut at the Office Depot, then I just bound them using the Bind It All. The chipboard is mostly from Stampin' Up. Most of the paper is basic grey, different 6x6 paper packs. I used PTI papers on 2 of them. I hope she likes them.
