Are these always vertical with the blank 1 inch on the 7" side?

Aumonae 07/ 5/2013 #

I prefer to have the inch margin on mine on the 5" side.... I don't like the tall and skinny.... does it matter? Can we ask our partner what they prefer?

art3osb 07/ 8/2013 #

I've made one that was a different size for my partner but I would rather not leave a margin. It takes away space for artwork. It can be vertical or horizonal. It is up to the person making it. If I'm wrong @Jjean you can correct me. There is a group or two that I know of that requires a margin. I do one every now and then.

Oh, wait, this one is in the group. I'm use to doing her public journal pages. If there is a margin requirement I will do one but if we don't have to then I would rather not.

heheh, it does say leave a 1" border on the left side of page.

Jjean 07/ 8/2013 #

Sorry, did not see this....I would ask my partner if there is a ? about the 1" border....I make mine on the left side...

art3osb 07/15/2013 #

Oh man, I have my page made and it still looks kind of bare. Not sure what else to do to it. I forgot about the 1" border again, darn it. The way I made it though there is a border on it. Since it is a book page I hate to cover up the back so the it isn't thick. What if I laminated it? It isn't thick but it makes it sturdy and safe from being ruined. Hmmmm, gotta think about it. I might have to redo it.

Will send you a PM
