This Journal uses the Pink & Green Papers Collection for Journals & also includes Cut & Creates. When using papers that are faded at the edges like these, it is difficult to find the actual edge & end up with pages that are the correct size. The double pages are 10" x 7". To cut accurately: 1. mark the centre horizontally with a pencil - choose 1 paper that is the most obvious 2. put that mark at 5" on the cutter & cut the outside edge 3. turn paper & cut the other side at 10" 4. mark centre vertically at 3.5" & cut, turn & cut the other edge at 7" I cut several sheets at a time Products used: ribbons, laces, transparency butterflies, paper flowers & leaves, laser-cut chip frame, ivory cardstock, vintage trinkets, pearls, paper lace doilies, silk flowers, die cuts, laces w diamante centre, tea-dyed vellum. The papers are available either printed or as a digital download. The journal papers are available in 2 sizes - 5.5" x 8.3" used in this book & also 5"x7" at www.megsgarden.com
