So Cute

I don't normally use photos bigger than 4 x 6 due to the cost. I can buy a 4 x 6 for as low as 13 cents if I print a lot or as much as 28 cents if I do instant prints. Gets expensive since I just LOVE SCRAPBOOKING! Still 28 cents is not a bad price. Going up a size though; its expensive. One 5 x7 is around $1.50 and an 8 x 10 is about $2.50. That is too much of a price difference for my taste and until I get a nice printer at home I am happy with cheap 4 x 6 photos. Every once in a while though you just have to use something a little bigger. I LOVE this layout.

Pop Up Card

First of all thanks to Melani Hawkins for showing me this card. I love it! So I made my own instructions and I am now sharing with you.
Here is my template. The dashed blue and red lines are score marks. Make sure you fold each one a few times both in and out. The reason for this is that it will be easier to work on the paper. Then hold the two flaps at the end and gently push the triangle backwards so the center diamond 'pops' out!

I chose a pattern paper that is not too busy. Something pretty so you don't have to spend a lot of time decorating.

this is the back of the card. I added a tag and it says you are darling. The diamond on the inside is great to add a message to whomever you  are giving this card to.

I added some butterfly and flower decorations.
