Big Deal ALSB Pages and Greetings to Go

Let's start with the batch of ALSB pages created with the Big Deal collection.

Rounding the corners of the 2.5x3.5" Grey mattes adds a nice playing card look. I really love my Corner Chomper!
The photo mattes and journaling areas fit together like a puzzle. Remember to attach the elements with even spacing for a great look.
The long, narrow mattes on the right are perfect for landscape images. If you lack horizontal photos, add two smaller squares to each matte.
I love the neutral tones in this pair of pages. You'll be surprised by how many themes it will support!
Note that the edge of the Yellow Print on the left has been trimmed away to add dimension to the cool swirl and border.
This page would be great for any group family photo when you've got an actual "full house"! Rounded corners are an important design element on this layout. The Red papers used as the base show the contrast of the front/back of the sheet.
Reaching the end of the process with a well-balanced page always makes my day. Wrapping a corner of the Grey mattes with satin ribbon adds a nice finishing touch.
Up next . . . Greetings to Go!

The A2-sized cards this month are double-scored to form an easel. They include two sets of double panels for the outside and inside.
For the card in the lower left, I placed all four images onto a mounting block to plan placement, then removed the diamond/heart. Ink and stamp in black. Replace the diamond/heart; remove the spade/club. Ink and stamp in red. Ta-dah!

I could go on an on, but you will find more details about each card in the instructions. Enjoy being as creative as you like with these gems!
