Be sure to watch the following video that I made to see the Discbound notebook system in action.

Boy! I sure could use that for my crafting ideas. What a great idea. But then Martha Stewart seems to always come up with great ideas. I like the decals.

Sharon said...

I would LOVE to have this - 2 actually! One for me :) and one for my future daughter-in-law. My son and his fiance are getting married next October and this would be a perfect gift for DIL to keep all of the wedding details organized in one place. She would love it! Thanks for the chance to win it....keeping my fingers crossed!

Sharon said...

I went to Facebook and "Liked" your page and have your feed appearing in my news feed. I LOVE your posts and videos - so helpful. Thanks so much.

I am new to Martha Stewart items because here in Australia we don't get much (sadly) and I am a huge fan of her stuff but the shipping for items that aren't already in stores is a killer lol.
But I must say this is the first Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery product I have seen, and I LOVE it. I hope they bring them out here. It would be perfect for all the women in my family with everything we need to keep up on.
Thanks for the chance to win :D

i love just about anything from Martha but I will say I use daily in my office at work her pockets that fit up on a bulletin board. They are so clean looking and a great organizing feature.

This is a great product, and I love the Tiffany blue color. So pretty! So far, my favorite and most usable product from her line at Staples is the little file tab labels. They are so versatile. =)

I would love to have this new folder. The possibilities are endless! If I win I will attempt to do a smash book. It would be so easy to pop things in and out of the book. It is hard for me to choose just one favorite, but i think I will have to say my favorite office item is the pantry pockets. Thanks so much for the chance to win! Debbie

mary said...

i like the MS removable labels.The Staples website kept repeating the same page of her items. I need to find some way to label all of the charging cords that I am getting for all the electronic items: Ipad, Iphone, keyboard, wireless speaker, external battery, car charger, etc., on and on. I have to keep them straight as which goes with what.

Martha Stewart Avery lines are so adorable and proffesional looking. Everytime I see them, they always make me inspired to go outand ge organized...That is until the effect wares off, and I'm stuck being desordanado again! Anyways, my favorite product are the journaling products- they're so cute and worth it, even though I usually forget to use them (:

TeacherMom said...

This books is so cool! I would LOVE to have one of these to organize my scrapbook ideas and such all in one place. Love how you can move things around.

I, along with everyone else, absolutely love Martha! I love her all over the page punches and fine glitter and paints. Linda, please note, you really inspire me. I get so excited when I get your emails to see what you came up. Thanks so much for all your inspirations. I just made some business cards and the holder came out fabulous. Thank you!

RJillOK913 said...

What a wonderful book to work with!
I like the multi-colored tab sheets to separate the book into different sections. I agree that this would be an excellent tool for keeping those Scrapbooking ideas. I also have a 4 month trip up to Puget Sound's Whidbey Island where I'll be dog and house-sitting for my sister while she and her hubby travel around the world. I want to record my adventures. Thanks,
