I would use Time to Flourish for a card keeper. However, since it's Steampunk Spells that is being given away, with that I'd make a halloween album. Thanks!

Another nice collection. G45 never disappoints.

I like to make a Halloween mini of my kids and grandkids through the years in costumes.

Beautiful cards using Graphic 45 collections!

Inspirational at its best. Love all your papers and steampunk would be something I would love to play with...
