My Vacation Album
By LeNae Gerig

LeNae's Designer Tip: To adhere the overlay to the cover, hide the adhesive under items glued to the top of the overlay, such as the twill border and the die cut pieces. Use a small amount of glue stick to secure the overlay to the edges of the album.

Instructions:

1. Remove the posts and pages from the album and use the surface of the inkpad to ink the album binding. Glue the blocked plaid/tweed and brocade paper to the front cover. Turn the cover over and use the knife to trim away excess paper. Cover the back of the album with plaid paper.

2. Cut the "vacation" overlay so that the definition fits within the tweed section. Glue a 2-3/4" x 2" vacation photo to the right side of the brocade section. Glue twill under the Vacation definition and a black knotted ribbon from the kit to the left end of the twill. Adhere the die cut shapes below the twill.

3. Journal the vacation destination and date onto the light ivory cardstock. Cut into a strip and ink the edges black. Glue above the photo.

Summer Family Fun Letter Box Tray

Summer Family Fun Letter Box Tray
By Susan Cobb

Susan's Designer Tip: I covered each compartment in the tray with paper or photos, then embellished each one differently with Dazzles stickers, ribbon, and punched butterflies and dragonflies. I backed some Dazzles with holographic paper or colored paper to embellish them before adding them to the tray. I cut a flower from the pink border paper, cut it in two pieces, then glued one piece to the left side of a compartment in the tray. I glued the second piece of the flower to the adjacent compartment, matching up the edges of the flower with the first piece. I punched holographic paper circles for flower centers.

Instructions:

1. Turn the tray so the handle is at the left side. Cut pieces of patterned and solid papers to fit inside the compartments and glue in place, alternating colors for a pleasing arrangement.

2. Add photos to some compartments as desired. Embellish as shown with Dazzles, holographic paper, punched dragonflies and butterflies, and ribbon.

3. Use the template to trace and cut out a blue paper tag and ink the edges. Computer print or write on the center, then punch a 1/8" hole at the top. Add a sun sticker around the hole, then hang from handle with ribbon. Tie lime gingham ribbon to handle as shown.

Relaxing Birthday Card
By Susan Cobb

Susan's Designer Tip: I sanded the sand pail Brad Buddy and brads for added texture and to highlight the embossed details of the embellishments. I used the Multi-Shaper Punch to create a border in the orange paper, overlapping the blue for great contrast! I repeated the look on the inside.

Instructions:

1. Turn the card so the fold is at the left. Cut a 5" x 6-1/2" striped paper rectangle and cover the bottom 2" with blue textured paper.

2. To create the border: For the first punch, remove the magnetic punch head from the base and place the orange paper on the base. Lightly place the upper punch on paper allowing magnets to lock in place and firmly press on the center of the lever with heel of hand. After the first cut, align punched paper with raised pink design guide labeled "border". Replace punch and press lever. Continue punching a third image.

3. Trim the orange paper to 5" x 3-1/2" with the border centered at the bottom. Write or computer print a greeting 1-3/4" from the top of the orange piece, with space between the words for the "fun" word fragment. Glue to bottom of the rectangle over the blue textured paper. Glue the "fun" in place between the words.

4. Sand 2 yellow sunshine brads, blue sunglasses, 1 standard orange brad, 2 orange mini brads, and the sand bucket Brad Buddy and brads. Attach the bucket buddy and brads to the center of the tag punch-out. Sand the edges of the tag and then Zot a ribbon to the handle of the bucket. Glue blue ribbon across orange paper leaving a 1/8" border at the top. Glue the tag overlapping the striped paper, orange paper, and ribbon. Attach the sunglasses brad and yellow sun brad to the rectangle as shown. Glue the rectangle even with card front. Sand the front, concentrating on straight edges.

5. Inside the card: Cover the inside with blue textured paper and sand the edges. Create another punched border with orange paper: 5" x 3-1/2". Sand the straight edges and glue centered over the blue paper. Glue aqua ribbon across the center. Write or computer print "Celebrate!" on the striped label, add sanded mini brads to the ends and attach centered over the ribbon. Add the remaining sun brad.

Enjoy Sweet Treats Card
By LeNae Gerig

LeNae's Designer Tip: When piecing the Dazzles stickers with different papers, start at the dish portion and silver holographic paper, only adhering the dish to the edge of the paper. Use small scissors and lift the Dazzles as you cut the paper under the sticker.

Instructions:

1. Place the card fold at the top. Cover with silver holographic paper. Cut the confetti paper into a 4-3/4" x 6-1/4" rectangle and ink the edges brown. Glue to the card center. Cut a 4-1/2" x 3-1/4" rectangle of striped paper. Ink and mat with brown paper, leaving a 1/16" wide border. Glue to the left side of the card. Adhere the cherry border 3/4" from the bottom edge of the striped rectangle.

2. Piece the banana split with silver for the dish, gold for the banana, pink paper for the ice cream, a red holographic cherry with green stem. Glue the split to a 3" light blue square with inked edges and matted with brown paper. Adhere a row of crystal stickers at the top and bottom edge. Foam tape the square over the striped rectangle. Adhere "Enjoy" at the top right card corner.

3. Inside the card: Cut a 1-3/4" strip of confetti paper and ink the edges brown. Glue to the card inside back, 1/2" from the left edge. Adhere "Sweet Treats" to the brown tag and glue to the top of the strip. Top the tag with a crystal. Foam tape the ice cream float stamp cut-out to the left and an ice cream cone Dazzle to the right.

Happy Birthday Metal Flower Card

Happy Birthday Metal Flower Card
By Susan Cobb

Susan's Designer Tip: I used the pointed tool in the tool set to outline the template shapes onto the back of the metal, against the thin foam pad. I also used the tool to emboss the shapes inside the petals. I refined the shapes with one of the flat-edged tools against the acrylic mat. After cutting out the shapes, I sanded the embossed areas to highlight them.

Instructions:

1. With the fold at the left, cover the card front with the red circles border paper, with the border at the left. Ink the edges. Attach a 1/8" strip of plum metal to the left edge of the card front.

2. Turn over the desired color of metal so the silver side is up, then place over the thin mat on your work surface. Place the template on top of the metal. Use the pointed end tool to outline the desired flower shape, plus the inner shape. Turn the metal piece over and trim loosely around the shape. Place on the acrylic mat and use the pointed tool and a flat-ended tool to define the lines and shape. Cut out the shape, then sand the embossed areas. Repeat for more flower shapes, a green stem, and 2 leaves.

3. Layer the flowers together with foam tape. Attach stem and leaves in place with Zots. Foam tape the flowers over the top of the stem. Write "Happy Birthday" along bottom of the leaf as shown.

Happy Birthday Ice Cream Sundae
By Susan Cobb

Susan's Designer Tip: This makes a fun gift wrap for a small birthday gift or other treat. The foil makes it really sturdy. Tacky glue works well to keep the tabs in place.

Instructions:

1. For the Ice Cream Cup: Position the template on the back of the blue paisley foil and trace the entire cup pattern including all fold lines. Keep pencil close to the inside edge. Remove the template and cut around the outer edges. Score all fold lines and fold as follows: Fold A is a Valley Fold and Fold B is a Mountain Fold. Glue each tab to the inside of its neighboring panel.

2. For the Ice Cream: Position the template on the back of the Pink Polka Dot Foil. Trace the entire pattern including all fold and cut lines. Keep your pencil close to the inside edge. Remove the template and cut around the outer edges and along the inner cut lines. Score all fold lines and then fold. Glue each tab to the inside of its neighboring panel. Working clockwise, hook each top swirl in the center. Tuck each swirl under the previous one with the last swirl under the first (top will be very fluffy and edges will stick out a bit).

3. Place the ice cream in the ice cream cup. Trace and cut out the topper from light pink cardstock. Working clockwise, fold each arm inward, interlocking at the center. Lift the first arm to tuck in the last arm. Add mini brad at the center of the topper and Zot to the top of your ice cream. Trace and cut out a light pink tag. Write or computer print "Happy Birthday!" on the tag then punch a hole at the top. Hang tag from ice cream with silver Memory Thread. Trace and cut out spoon from blue paisley foil and glue to the ice cream as shown.

Instructions:

1. Trace the template on the back of foil paper, be sure to mark the fold lines. Remove the template and cut out the pattern. Fold according to the template directions.

2. Sand the edges of the ice cream swirl to define the edges.

3. For the cherry made from Memory Thread: start with 24" of red Memory Thread, make a narrow loop, 3/4" long. Continuing with the same length of Memory Thread, make another loop across the center of the first loop (so the loops look like a +). Now wrap around the center 3 times horizontally, then 3 times vertically. Continue wrapping until you have used the length of thread. Now shape into a ball and Zot
to the top of the chocolate ice cream.

Disneyland Resort
By LeNae Gerig

LeNae's Designer Tip: Notice the printed border at the top of each page, the punch-out border glued across the bottom, and the photos and journaling running diagonally between the 2? This creates a basic "Z" shape in the page layouts, which is the natural path a viewer's eye will take when looking at your pages - entering from the top left corner of the page and exiting from the bottom right. Using a "Z" formation lets you know where to effectively place your page elements and adds balance to the layout.

Instructions:

For Page 1:

1. Place a sheet of aqua paper with the Mickey block border at the top. Double-mat a 7" x 5" photo on yellow, then black cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Glue the photo centered on the page.

2. Foam tape the "Disneyland Resort" punch-out to the top right corner of the photo. Attach the Mickey Brad Buddy to the bottom right corner.

3. Add a yellow mouse head brad to a small tag punch-out. Glue the tag to the left side of the photo. Zot a bow of red ribbon to the tag's tab. Computer journal the date on white cardstock, then mat on black cardstock and trim to 1/16". Glue the year tucked under the bow.

4. Glue a Mickey border punch-out across the bottom of the page. Foam tape a Mickey tile punch-out to the left end.

For Page 2:

1. Place another sheet of aqua paper with the Mickey block border at the top. Glue a Mickey border punch-out across the bottom of the page.

2. Mat a 4" x 5" and a 6" x 4" photo on black cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Glue the vertical photo in the top right corner of the page, just below the printed border. Glue the horizontal photo in the bottom left corner of the page, just above the punch-out border. Foam tape a word punch-out to the right edge of each photo.

3. Computer journal in blue ink on white cardstock. Mat on black cardstock and trim to 1/8". Glue the mouse head tab punch-out behind the left edge of the journaling. Glue the journaling above the horizontal photo and add three mini brads to the bottom edge. Glue the ticket punch-out below the vertical photo.

Cinderella
By LeNae Gerig

LeNae's Designer Tip: Have an empty spot in the corner of your photo? Want to add a little flair to a pre-printed page border? Don't be afraid to overlap! Overlapping elements is a great way to create unity and lead the viewer's eye through your layouts.

On this "Cinderella" spread, LeNae overlapped her journaling block with a small photo, glued punch-outs over the larger photos and added tags and Brad Buddies on top of the page border.

Repeating the overlapping technique in a few areas of the pages helps to unify the spread as a whole. And overlapping saves on space too, which means you can include more of your favorite photos!

Instructions:

For Page 1:

1. Place a sheet of blue paper with the striped border at the bottom. Double-mat a 5" x 7" photo on pink, then white cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Glue the photo in the top left corner of the page.

2. Glue the "Cinderella" punch-out to the bottom right corner of the photo. Add a gold crown brad to a blue tag punch-out and glue it to the top right corner of the photo. Zot a bow of pink ribbon to the tag's tab.

3. Computer journal a vertical block on white cardstock, then crop with 2-1/2" blank space at the bottom. Glue the journaling to the right side of the page. Foam tape a small photo in the space below the journaling. Add 3 mini brads to the left of the photo. Zot a bow of pink ribbon above the journaling.

4. Attach the pumpkin carriage Brad Buddy to the printed page border, centered below the journaling.

For Page 2:

1. Place another sheet of blue paper with the striped border at the bottom. Mat a 7" x 5" photo on pink cardstock and trim to 1/8". Mat again on white cardstock, trimming the right edge to 2" and the remaining edges to 1/8". Glue the photo centered at the top of the page.

2. Attach the "dreams do come true" punch-out to the top of the large edge of the photo mat. Foam tape the Cinderella punch-out below. Add a pink crown brad above the top left corner of the photo.

3. Computer journal a horizontal strip on white cardstock. Glue below the bottom right edge of the photo and add 3 mini brads. Glue the glass slipper punch-out to the left of the journaling and accent with a white starburst brad. Glue folded ribbon behind the top of the mouse punch-out, then foam tape it to the right end of the printed page border.

Girls in Flowers
By LeNae Gerig

Instructions:

For Page 1:

1. Ink the edges of an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of purple paper. Use the Multi-Shaper Punch to punch two perpendicular sides of the paper, stopping 1 " from each end and glue to the dark green fern paper, 1-1/4" from the top.

2. Cut a sheet of 5-1/2" x 8" light blue sponged paper and ink the edges black. Journal at the bottom of the paper and glue to the right side of the punched paper. Mat (2) 4" x 6" photos on black glimmer paper, leaving a 1/8" wide border and glue overlapping the blue sponged paper. Adhere a Dazzles flower border above the journaling on the blue sponged paper.

3. Create a cluster of both torn and cut paper elements from the Collage book. Glue and foam tape them overlapping at the bottom left corner. Line a large Dazzles humming bird with burgundy glimmer paper and cut close to the sticker edge. Foam tape the Dazzles and a green ribbon bow to the bottom left with the cluster.

For Page 2:

1. Ink the edges of an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of purple paper. Use the Multi-Shaper Punch to punch two perpendicular sides of the paper, stopping 1-3/4" from each end and glue to the light green fern paper.

2. Overlap the 5-1/2" x 8" blue swirl rectangle and a matted 5" x 7" photo, as shown. Attach paper cut outs, art, and ribbon bows down the left side of the page. Create a cluster of art, a ribbon bow and another backed Dazzles in the upper right corner of the page. nd the edges of a large slide mount innie. Flock and let dry, leaving the center clear for foam tape and adhere the "gratitude" cut-out.
