I got a beautiful stack of paper. DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack 180 sheets reg $20 on sale $8. I also got a DCWV little mat stack in Neutrals 87 sheets that's 3.875" x 3.875". I haven't seen one this size before. It's textured and colored on both sides.
I thought I'd try making one of the 12x12 mini albums and using this mat stack for the cover.
Using the little mat stack for the cover is a little larger than I would like, but doable if you don't want to cut and are in a hurry. I rounded the edges of the album only on the opening side. I added a little burgandy birdie charm to the ribbon on the spine, and threw some fall stickers on the cover. It's simple on the outside, and the inside is GORGEOUS! I love that Indian Summer paper!!
