I had some varying sizes of photos from our engagement shoot that I really loved, and they really worked with the black and kraft paper.  I arranged them in a grid, with a glittler heart in the center and a quick paper flower (hand cut circles, crinkled up, with a brad stuck through them).  I made two frames around the grid, one with black paper and one with the striped kraft paper to emphasive the photos.  The outermost kraft paper is actually the packaging from the Prima transparency cut to 12x12 size with scallop scissors!
This was a super simple, quick layout.  I cut out a piece of the Making Memories flower paper, rolled the edges up slightly, and added a paper fringe (I cut a piece off the packing paper included inside my kit with pinking shears and just stapled it along the edge of the photo).  I hand wrote a title and drew some journaling lines.  I also used the shiny black packaging from the Making Memories tiny alphas to make some page corners.
This is probably my favorite layout.  I used the embossed white cardstock (which I loved, the texture is subtle but really great!) to create a "snow bank."  I just cut the paper into two pieces and used a scrap piece to create a second row of hills (you can't really see this because it's covered up).  Then I cut trees out of patterned paper and added the pictures and journaling.  Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year!
This layout is super dimensional, all the hearts & picture on on pop-dots.  I just layered bits and pieces of the scraps I had lying around for some (and the rubons) for an unique patterned paper effect.  I used a sharpie to outline the picture, and cut the hearts out of the packing paper!

I loved the ledger paper and packing paper so much, I made several beautiful flowers out of it (these shown are about 3-4 inches wide).  To make them I hand cut circles in varying sizes and cut a small slit about half way through the circle.  I then slightly pulled to create a bit of overlap and taped on the underside of the flower.  To avoid getting a point on the bottom of my flower, I smooshed every layer up a bit on the bottom. I then attached all the layers with a brad.  To make the pleated flowers, I just kept folding and taping a strip of packing paper into a circle and then hand cut a ledger paper circle to cover the tape and added a button on top.  Quick, unique gift wrapping!
