Rasberry Tart Squash Book

I'm hosting a mini album swap at leadership next week and wanted to share with you one of my creations for it. I've always loved these squash books, it's amazing to me what you can do with just cardstock! This one features the new Rasberry Tart designer series paper and and Sweet Stems, both will be available in the upcoming Spring/Summer Idea book and catalog! The Rasberry Tart paper is just beautiful. I've been creating with it and I just love all of the colors together in this paper! Left is the book all closed up. It measures just 4x4 inches when closed. To the left is the book when all closed up. All products from Stampin' Up!
