How to: Select your favorite designer print, paper, journals, books, mini albums, etc. and stack them all together on your favorite Desktop Essentials clipboard. Select coordinating ribbon and secure it to wide elastic that will help secure your journals and all your items in place. A full tutorial for creating the elastic band can be found on my blog. Secure all the elements together on the clipboard and in your custom band. I want to be able to journal, I want to scrap in the 52 week journal, and I want to have items for my kids to draw on so I included glue, scissors, pens and pencils, funky erasers, even confetti! You can add additional embellishments to the clipboard to customize it even more to your liking. Now I have everything I need, along with my portable printer for all my on-the-go documenting needs.
