I made 20 cards (A-2 size) with 3 sheets of patterned paper plus card bases. Since I used 3 sheets of paper, I guess this is a "Three Sheet Wonder." :0) I got the cutting pattern from the Cricut.com message board. They are basically "any occasion" cards as the majority of them have no sentiment since they are a donation for a silent auction.
The paper is DCWV cardstock and Colorbok Jewel Paper Stack.
So, here's the rest of the book. I'm not sure why it wouldn't let me do it all in one post. Oh well....
The photo mats on these two pages are cut at 3.5"x3.5" and is glued down on 3 sides to creat a pocket for a tag. The tags are cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and altered in Design Studio to be about 3" wide by 4" tall. They are white on the back to allow for journaling.
I made this pocket about 2"x4" and stamped some baby feet across the bottom and added gem cluster to the top. The tags are about 3"x4".
This is just like the inside front cover. This is an invitation from Wild Card, folded and glued on the back. The inside is white for journaling or additional pictures.
Thanks for looking!

I used Elmer's Craft Bond Spray Adhesive to adhere all my papers to the chipboard. It provides a nice even coat with no bumps.
For the cover I used New Arrival and cut the baby at 2" and the stork at 3". I cut the baby sling, stork, and hat twice. I inked the edges and then used pop-dots to attach the duplicate cuts. It adds a bit of dimension to the front cover. And of course, there is lots of ribbon on the binding rings.
This is the invitation on page 37 from Wild Card. It's cut at 4". I glued a length of ribbon to the back and then tied the extra into a bow to keep it closed. It is such a perfect bow that I hated to untie it! The inside is white so the mom-to-be can add a photo or use it for journaling.
This is also from Wild Card. It is the doily card cut at 3.5 inches."Bath Time" is from New Arrival and cut at 2". I used my gel pen to color in the bubbles and then added a jewel as the dot the "i."
The photo mat is cut at 3.5"x3.5". I stamped the sentiment and added some cute buttons.
This is pretty much the same as the facing page.
This photo mat is cut at 4"x3.5". "Little One" is from New Arrival and cut at 1" with a jewel used to dot the "i".
This photo mat is also cut at 4"x3.5" with a cluster of jewels on the border for some added sparkle.
OK, for some reason, it's not letting me post the rest of my pictures, so I'm going to have to do it in another post. Grrrrr!
