2008 Family Memories book, Cricut DS


I'm taking a couple hours to go scrap with a friend tomorrow so I thought I'd put together a mini book for 2008. This was made using Plantin Schoolbook and Cricut DS, final size is 6 by 11. The "family" and corners on the front are Home Accents (not included in file), and the Memories is a rub on. The pages are done using shadow letters and the final page of the file has the letters for layering, but they could easily be left off. I don't have a BIA (yet) so I used a 12 x 6 inch paper, folded over for my base, then put in some jumbo eyelets to keep it all together and scored the pages so they would all open nicely. I will post the inside photos hopefully tomorrow after my scrap time. The paper is double sided designer paper I got recently at Costco - 300 pages for $30! Such a great deal and I happen to be there on my birthday, so of course I had to buy it!
If you would like to make one, I've attached the file below. Happy New Year!

I'm so excited to make some of these things. I wanted to ask you if I could make some scal files out of your cut files...I don't have George.
