which part is badly explained? ? I think it's wonderfully explained. If you have a negative comment; you must explain why

Sorry. This is one of those items that I've made several times, but I found trying to explain just how I do it a little harder than I thought it would be. If you can tell me which part is hard to follow, I'd me more than happy to try and edit it for you. Thanks for your feedback.

Pretty!

Thank you for your kind words. This one is really pretty and was made for my BFF. It's amazing how each one I've made looks so different from the next. Using different themes and paper stacks gives each one a unique look. Thanks again :)
