Here's a 6 x 6 album/journal which I recently made for the Pink Swap. I'm really happy wirh how it turned out.

I used a selection of double sided scrapbooking papers from the Peabody range by K & Co. And the rub-ons were from the Bailey range, also by K & Co.

I cut the borders & tags using my Fiskars shape cutter. I finally got the hang of it after much experimentation and now I use it for everything.

Too many ads ruin a mediocre site.

I made the whole book - it has 16 pages.

I cut 2 pieces of double sided 12 x 12  paper in half (to make 4 lots of 12 x 6) and then folded them in half (to make 6 x 6). Then I stacked all the pages up and glued a binding strip to the front and back page. I also glued binding strips in between the pages to keep them together.
