Clear Envelope Photo Book

Stamp Set: Inspired by Nature
Ink: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Basic Gray
Paper: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, and Urban DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Scallop Die for the Big Shot,Clear Envelopes, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-A-Dile, Sticky Strip, and Sponge Daubers.

To make the Photo Book-cut card stock to 7 1/4 inches x 5 inches. Score one side one inch from the edge of the card stock (this will form the "spine" of the book). Use this piece of card stock for the front of your photo book.

Inside View of Photo Book:

Apply sticky strip to the back of ONE clear envelope. The opening of the envelope is the "front". Attach the envelope with the sticky strip to the back of your photo book. Peel the protective plastic off the envelope, then attach the next envelope. Continue until you have as many envelopes as you would like as your photo pages.

Assemble the book, and use the jumbo eyelets to "bind" your photo book.

Cut Designer paper to 4 3/4 inches x 6 inches and attach to the front of your book. Use the Big Shot and Scallop Circle Die to create scallop circle. Use the sponge daubers to apply the Baja Breeze ink to stamp, then the Kiwi Kiss to the leaves and stems, then Basic Gray to the tops of the flower. Lightly "huff" on the stamp to re-moisten the ink, then stamp the image on your scallop circle. Apply Kiwi Kiss in to the grass stamp, then stamp on top of the flower image. Adhere to front of photo book.

Chalkboard Nature's Silhouettes

Stamp Set: Nature's Silhouette
Paper: Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, & Basic Black
Ink: Garden Green & White Pigment Ink
Accessories: Stampin' Pastels & Cotton Balls

Stamp the images on black card stock in White Pigment Ink. Use the cotton ball to pick up chalk from the Stampin' Pastels. While the Pigment Ink is still wet, apply the chalk on the cotton ball to your stamped image. Continue to add chalk until the image has the desired color. Use a paper towel to remove any stray chalk from the black card stock. I used Chocolate Chip and Garden Green chalk on this piece.

I used the 1 1/4 inch punch to punch the "moon" out of the Post It© Note. I then put the circle on the stamped image, and used the stampin' sponge to create the "sky" out of Night of Navy and Basic Black Ink.
