I've yet to decorate or add pictures. I'm sure you notice this is done differently than most. I may have 'overscored' the lines. I felt the cardstock was too weak where it was scored and wouldn't stand up to much use. In fact one of the sides broke off when I was working with it. I ended up cutting the pattern paper the same way as the cardstock to give it strength. I'll add mats before I put in pics and journaling.
