  2. On the “Merry & Bright” border, Step 3 of the instructions should include that the green patterned paper should be cut with the Green Blade. (I know it can get confusing with both greens! :~)

    Lovely ideas. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m going to adapt them all into cards, since my customers seem to be mostly interested in cards rather than scrapbooking.
