Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #44

This is a 4x6 photo album for my Grandma. She lives in England so I try to send her pictures once a month. So for Christmas I asked for and received the Your Story Photo so that I could bind the photos together that I send her. I like it for that purpose but I'm not impressed with how the pages fold. I scored the photos as recommended and they still arch open. I do like how fast it is so I guess everything has pros and cons. The recipe for this cover is:
  • Dark Green - DCWV Neutral Cardstock stack (I'm having a hard time cutting with this paper due to its white core. I've been doing a lot of intricate cuts though, so that may be the problem)

  • Green Pattern Paper from K & Company Eloise stack

  • Paper for the snowflake is from my scraps


  • Font - Printing 101 (I got this at Michaels, its on clearance, and it is my favorite font. You can also get it with your cricut points.) cut at 0.75"

  • Snowflake - Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cut at 2" (I would not recommend cutting the final layer any is very intricate and barely worked at 2")
