BFF Word Book

Yay! I have upgraded to SCAL for Mac 2.0. Liking the layers feature and type really seems to be alot easier to work with in 2.0.

Here is a BFF (best friends forever) Word Book. I made this for our friend's 9yr old daughter. This is my first word book. I have some ideas for some other ones and hope to work on some soon.

Here are a few images of the word book.

I have a few tips if you haven't created a word book before.
1. Cut the first layer out of chip board (I use cereal boxes). Under "Cutter" select "Multi-Cut" and select "2 Times".
2. Cut the same file using your background paper (remember to take off multi-cut) and adhere to the chipboard.
3. Select the image and click on "Flip Horizonal" and cut this. This will be the back of the first layer, adhere to chipboard.
4. Repeat for remaining layers.

Here are the elements for the bff word book.
If you'd like the SVG click DOWNLOAD. (all three layers are in one file)
If you'd like the SCUT click DOWNLOAD. (separated as layers in SCAL2)

Since I am new to SCAL 2.0 please leave me a comment if you have any issues with the files.
