Artbooking Snapshots Mini Album

I actually have been working on projects, but haven't had much time to get them posted for you to see. Here's one that I just finished up today. 
I can't take complete credit for this design. I found inspiration from Stacy Julian's website.

Oh snap! (Sorry; couldn't help myself.) So, I made this album way more difficult than it had to be. I finally figured out on literally the last 2 pages that all I had to do was set my dial size to 8" because everything was already linked on the two buttons I used (buttons 3 and 4, pages 40-41). I kept thinking I needed to use the real dial size button and then set the dial at a certain number of inches. I went through about 5 pieces of cardstock before I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. 

If you choose to create this album at home with your very own Artbooking cartridge, remember to set the dial at 8" and keep the real dial size button OFF. It will cut everything to size just for this album. (Side note: I laughed myself silly when I set the my favorite photos cut to 1". Teeny, tiny!)
