user posted image1. Start with the Journaling sheet (I also call this the die cut sheet or ATC sheet) This sheet provides an already decorated option for making a quick mini. Cut down each die (3x4)

2. Next using your Glue Glider layer two die cuts together to create 6 pages from the 12 cuts. Using your Crop-A-Dile punch a hole in the corner and sand the edges of your pages.

3. Next trim down one sheet of cardstock in the same fashion to create blank slates for your photos.

4. Using the Elements sticker sheet embellish the inside of your pages. I used U-Cut foam to pop certain elements up! Print your photos at 3x4 and attach and you will be all set!
