I am posting this for my friend, Rose. I know she would love to see it in person!
I used a tutorial from the old Cricut message board to help me make this book.
I used George & Basic Shapes and Base Camp to cut the book. I made the book back in February 2011, so I'm not sure of the size, but I think it was cut at 5". The pictures are from January 2011, but I just got them scrapped last week.
The paper is from a stack I got at WalMart about 8 years ago. The embellishments are K& Co.
On the page that has the journaling...I messed up. That dark blue mat in the back was supposed to be a pocket, but I didn't cut my tags quite narrow enough. So, I just clipped them together at the top with a brad and glued the last one down. They rotate out so you can read the tags in the middle and back.
