It's Georgia's turn to be featured in my 50 states album! The state is cut at 4", the flag at 3", the bird and flower at 2 1/2" and the word 'Georgia' is at 1". To see the rest of the album posted so far, click here.

I like your 50 state pages. Are you still glad you started them? I was thinking of doing something for my little one but I don't know if I am up to the challenge of 50 pages. Also your blog makes me want to check out the FF cartridge. I like the file folder & the coin holder. Did you alter the coin holder in any way in DS or is it as is from the cartridge? That turned out perfect for the coins.

Thanks for the compliments. To answer your questions, yes I am still glad I started them. In fact, I am almost finished with them but I just need to catch up posting them on the blog. I put the project on hold right before the holidays to work on Christmas projects, and haven't started it back up again. My goal is to finish in February. It is a lot more work than I had first imagined.
The FF cartridge does have a lot of potential, but you do have to use your imagination. The coin holder is not altered at all. I don't even have DS, so all the images you see are exactly what the cartridges will cut without manipulation. It is cut at 2". I do have to score 4 lines for each holder before I fold it because my cardstock is rather heavy, so that is a little tedious. Overall I am happy with how it is turning out though and I hope my boys will appreciate it.
Thanks for asking and thanks for your feedback!
