Kim used the Filagree Rectangle Window 8x8 album (with the vertical window & top opening) for her project Bazzill's "Dragon Fly" Criss Cross cardstock.
She filled in the window with that adorable vintage image for the cover. Each 8x8 cardstock page is glued back to back with Red Tacky Tape (also available at CC&M!) to give the album a sturdy feel. But you can also order the Album Kit with thin chipboard to adhere the pages to!

There's no place like home...(Duplicate Post from Die Cut Diva)

This is a duplicate post from my July 26th post over at Die Cut Diva...

Hi all!
Becky here today to share a little Wizard of Oz card I made for a girlfriend using the simple A7 Card in Candy Apple Bazzill CrissCross cardstock!
(Poppy photo courtesy of Wikipedia)
I decided to cover the front of the card with an image of a poppy field I found online. Then I layered over the bottom edge of the field that great checkerboard! It's actually a stamp I got from Lost Coast Designs! I embossed it in TH's Antique Linen Distress Embossing Powder for my "Yellow Brick Road." Dorothy was then "popped" onto the road. (I found her at a local scrapbook store, but forgot to see who make her!) 
Inside, I added a stamped ATC card with this perfect image from Stamp Camp! I stamped it 2x - one on the card itself, then again in glue on another scrap to glitter the shoes & then added them on top of the other image. Viola! "Ruby" Slippers!!
That's it for today!
