To Do List with the Your Story Photo & Imagine




I am definitely a list maker, and I just used up my favorite lined note pad. Luckily, the Imagine and Your Story Photo came to the rescue! To make the outside of my note pad, I trimmed this 4" x 6" cover, which came with the Your Story Photo, to a width of 3 1/8". It was very easy to cut on my paper cutter. I then trimmed the front cover flap down to 1".


To decorate it, I flood filled a rectangle with a pattern from the Better Together Imagine cartridge. It didn't come out to be the exact size I needed, but I just trimmed it down to 3/4" x 2 7/8" and inked up the edges. My "to do" is cut at 1" from the Cheerful Seasons Cricut cartridge, flood filled with a brown from the Imagine More cartridge. I added a little stitching to these letters with a white gelly roll pen. The strawberry, from Better Together, is cut at 1".


For the lined paper, I printed and cut from the Imagine More cartridge. This is a layer from another image, so I just separated the layers, deleted all of the other layers, and cut this one at 6" true size. I cut about 20 of them.
