Instructions:
The following chart will help with the Cricut cuts.  You will be using "From My Kitchen" and "Just Because Cards" for this page.
From My Kitchen - 
     Page #     Feature Button          Size          Paper
     35            "tabs"                         3.75"       light green card stock
     59             "words"                     1.75"       light green card stock (cut 3)
 Just Because Cards - 
    Page #     Feature Button          Size          Paper
     69            "layer 1"                    3"            light blue card stock
     69            "shift" "layer 1"          3"            dark yellow card stock
     69             "layer 2"                   3"            dark yellow card stock

     69             "layer 3"                   3"            white, red card stock
     69            "shift" "layer 3"          3"            yellow card stock
  1. Cut 2 pieces of card stock from the Nana's Kitchen Stack to 7" X 9.5".  I chose the paper with the coffee cups for the front and the wheels for the back.  Set the paper with wheels to the side as this will be the back piece.
  2. Lemonade - Using the chart above, cut the lemonade pieces.  Using your sticker maker and/or adhesive, adhere the pieces together.  Use yellow stickles to fill in the dark yellow portion of the lemon and lemonade.  Set aside to dry.  When dry, adhere to the upper left corner of the coffee cup page with dimensional adhesive.
  3. Cut the word "beverage" and the tab from light green card stock.  Turn all 3 "Beverage" words into stickers and stack on each other to give them added dimension.  Chalk the edges with evergreen pigment ink.
  4. Using the yellow polka dot ribbon, make a small bow and attach to the upper right hand corner of the front page with a mini glue dot.  Run ribbon loops around "beverage" and adhere to the front of the page.
  5. Using the ATG tape runner, apply a liberal amount of adhesive to the wrong side of the wheels paper that was set aside.  Adhere the completed front of the page to the back of the page.  Ink around the edges of both sides of the page with evergreen pigment ink.
  6. Tab - Cut a light green tab following the above chart.  Using your scoreboard and bone folder, score and fold your tab on the center line. Write the word "Beverages" on the front of the tab.  Ink around the edges with evergreen pigment ink. Adhere to the middle of the page.
  7. Eyelets - Color the white eyelets by using the Tim Holtz "Bottle" alcohol ink and applicator tool.  Cut holes and set 3 eyelets in the left hand margin of your page.
