  1. Becky Fritts says:

    I love your ideas. Can this system be used in the Retrospection 365 album or will the extra 1/2 inch make the pages stick out from the cover? I plan to put my Retrospection album together in the next few weeks.

  2. This is so fabulous. I am new to mini albums and this looks like it will save me tons of frustration.
    A few questions.. Where can I purchase this tutorial (I saw the youtube video) and where do you recommend purchasing tyvek?
    I am so glad I found you on YOUTUBE!
    Thank you so much

  3. Connie McDonald says:

    love it, love it. THANK YOU KATHY, you are the best.

  4. Kathy – congratulations on this achievement. You are an inspiration and I wish you much success. You are wise to protect your intellectual property. I am trying your new system today! Very excited!

    Also, I will be sure to give you credit for the binding system!

  5. Samantha says:

    I love this binding system!! I made the “I Am” album and it is indeed a better way to bind pages. I’m new but I love the “box” way of viewing videos! Thanks for all you do and the thought you put into all your projects!

  6. Congrats

  7. Connie McDonald says:

    Just finished a book and anxious to try this on my next one that I will be starting very soon. Kathy you are the greatest. I so love all of the things you come up with, always a new thing to learn. Thanks again

  8. I think you’re awesome!!!!! Love the binding system and all of your projects! Thanks for sharing your talents with us!

  9. Good for you for getting YOUR system patent pending. I have only purchased one other “pattern” for an interactive album from someone other than you. As soon as I purchased the pattern, a pop up stated that it would require an additional purchase of her binding system pattern as the album could not be constructed without it. Needless to say I made the purchase. I was shocked to discover that this person was selling your system as her own. Shame on her! I am so happy that you have taken the steps to set the record straight. You go girl !!!

  10. Loydene says:

    I’ve said before, and told you, that I think you are brilliant and would love to be able to sit and watch your process of creation! I am thrilled for you to hear that you’ve started the patent process for HH+. I’ve always believed that you were getting “ripped off” by other people failing to give credit to you for “remarkably similar” paper binding systems.
    But — I have to say – I hate the “Box” system for distribution of your classes.

  11. Kelly Harms says:

    What a great system! Will you be selling a tutorial about it? I hope you will so artists who create tutorials of their own album designs and want to use your binding system can point people to your tutorials for the directions for the binding system. That seems like it would be a win-win for everyone.

  12. love the looks of this system I am working on doing my first album so newbe here I would love to make some as gifts for my family thanks for sharing

  13. Victoria Daniel says:

  16. Carol Kesteloot says:

    Thanks Kathy, I like this. Will try it soon. I think you did a great job.

  17. So proud of you Kathy. Great job. So happy you got the patent and can take all the well deserved credit. Your first system was used and abused by way too many. Cheers to you on your success and your engagement.

  18. Millicent says:

    Awesome Kathy, glad you got your things protected this time.

  19. Kathy your creativity continues to inspire us to make better and better projects. Thank you so much for always improving your creative ideas and leading us so effortlessly through each project. Your instructive abilities are so well thought through and make even the most difficult concept easy to follow. You make all of us look good when we create a project. Thank you as well for sharing your amazing brain power with us. Kudos to you for patenting your genius process and thank you for always sharing with us. Without you my projects would be mundane at best.

  20. Valerie says:

  24. Michele Taylor says:

    Kathy, Thank you so much for this early video, I have had the
    instructions for a while now and every time I began it I was
    mathematically challenged, plus I didn’t get all those wonderful
    hints and tips that I did just listening to you now. I am on my
    way now, thank you again, love your Paper Phenomenon!

  25. Brenda L. says:

    Good for you for protecting your binding system Kathy!!! It is your business and your design, it only takes a minute to give you credit for it if one uses it. How hard is that?! Well hard enough for some people. lol You rock Kathy, and the ones that know it and respect you and your business knows it too! Hugs, Brenda

  26. Gracie Mizell says:

  35. So proud of you Kathy. Been thinking of you so often as my ex and father of my children died unexpectedly. We are so devastated and it has been so hard. I lost someone very dear to me and God is with us. I have found much peace praying for those who I know have been experiencing loss. Congrats on your patent.

  36. Kathy, I appreciate your creative expertise and the energy it takes to design. And with that creative energy you have built a very successful business. My hats off to you for protecting your designs. You are a great example of a woman owned business that keeps reinventing her craft. Stay focused on that and the best is yet to be! Go get it girl!
