Altered Photobook

The fish cardboard inserts are removable. Stamps: Everything Nice Inks: Black Stayz On for a nice crisp image Papers: tempting turquoise, tangerine tango, real red, whisper white (color combo taken right from the new Color Coach) Accessories: dotted embossing folder, hearts and brackets Big Shot die, tasteful trim Big Shot die I lined the back of both the front and back inserts with whisper white since the dotted embossed paper is not real attractive from the back side. It also allows someone to insert some journaling or a nice message.

Accessories - tasteful trim Big Shot die, daisies #2 Big Shot die, v
