June 2007 Kit
I had so much fun with this one! I covered the box entirely with paper and decorated it, using the circles and some ribbon to make a closure for the box. I painted the entire accordion album with off-white paint before adding paper (be sure to let it dry completely and re-bend into accordion before covering with paper to un-stiffen it a little). I used entirely June kit materials with the exception of one piece of paper from the May kit (the brownish file folder paper), some black number stickers and some black primas (they just matched so well!).

To make the flower on this card, simply push a flower from the kit onto the pin (all the way to the top) and tie some of the green ribbon on the pin to make "leaves". I used a small piece of the lined Autumn Leaves file paper from the May kit as the "thanks" block.

This is an easy card to make - make a knot with 2 pieces of ribbon and wrap a rhinestone brad around the knot in the center. Adhere ribbon across bottom of card. Add 7gypsies labels above and below ribbon in straight lines. Ink different sections of Heidi Swapp Thank you Corner stamp and stamp across labels.

I thought this would be a fun card for a birthday, graduation, etc.
To make the crown, apply paint to the top half only of the tulip stamp in the Pebbles, Inc. Fanciful foam stamp collection (I used Pebbles, Inc. Earth tones paint), stamp right on patterned paper.
The "sceptor" was made by sticking a flower through the pin before pushing pin through the paper. After sticking the pin through, I used wire cutters to cut the sharp tip off the pin.

This card reads: You hold the (key) to my heart
I cut thin strips of paper and fed it through my manual label maker (then liberally inked edges and letters) to make the words. I used glue dots to hold down the key and a cut the heart free-hand from a piece of scrap paper.

This paper is SO easy to layer! This is literally a 20 minute layout!
Ink the edges of all pieces with a black ink pad as you go: Start with a large background rectangle (after I had my layout blocked out, I cut the excess patterned paper that would be under the photo out to reuse on another project). Add a smaller rectangle peeking out from the bottom right corner of the first one. Then layer a photo mat and photo on top (keep all layers slightly tilted except the photo - I stuck that on with edges square). Slide on clip to top of photo. Add small strip of paper to bottom right. Stick a pin through a flower and adhere to top of strip. Add title (with glue dots) and any other handwritten info - wah-la! Done!

For some reason I always end up with a lot of "backside" photos of my family -- so, in true scrapbooker style, I made a layout about it!
This is all completely from the June Express kit except for the black letter stickers that spell "REAR" and the black ink to edge the photos and paper.
This layout was essentially made with scraps - just layer different sized rectangles (ink edges) sticking out from underneath an overlapping photo collage.
