"Endless" Portfolio Album Tutorial

Good morning!!!
This is my first August design team project for Country Craft Creations and it is soooooo cute!  I love how it turned out and I think you will too!  The paper collection and the Artisan Card Stock as well as the seam binding, gem dots and magnets are available at Country Craft Creations.  Stop by their store and pick it up!  
The customer service is AMAZING!  

Supplies used were:
Artisan Cardstock, 12x12", 11 of the brown, 4 of the ivory
Authentique papers ("Endless" and the Spectrum papers to go with it, total of 13 sheets.
Seam binding, approximately 1 1/2 yards
Magnets, Large, x2
Graphic 45 gem dots/flowers (assorted from my stash)
Key Hole (from my stash)

 I did this so that you can maximize the use of the cardstock and not have a lot of waste.  I did not do this for the patterned paper as you may want to use different papers.  I did give you the total of how many sheets it took me to make the book.  (See above).

Here is the cut list for the cardstock... (for the base of the book, not the photo mats as you may choose to do things different).  All of the photo mats and patterned papers are cut 1/8" shorter/narrower than the cardstock they cover.  All measurements listed below are in inches.
