I used the Rectangle Mini Album Tin Set from Creative Cuts and More to start this project. I chose to use smooth cardstock because I wanted to stamp on these. The brown accordian layer (called Album on the website) is Carob Cream Bazzill Smoothies cardstock, and the little panels (called Mats on the website) are White Bazzill Smoothies cardstock. The metal tin comes with this album and they fit together beautifully. The Killer Red Tacky Tape is the only adhesive that keeps the cardstock on the metal tin. Everything else just popped right off, but the cardstock is NOT moving since I used the Killer Red Tacky Tape.
All the stamps used here are from Verve. I just pulled out all of my Verve stamps and had a blast picking and choosing which stamps to use. I laid out all of the cardstock pieces and set the stamps next to them to get a feel for how this project would flow. I love the way it turned out!

Artistic Outpost Lovely Day plate in Black Archival right through the opening of the window. Let the ink dry, then colored the image using an H20 Brush and Rose Quartz and Green Olive paints from Creative Inspirations. The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival on the Mat, then adhered to the base card.
I love the window cards, because not only does the recipient get to enjoy the image on the outside of the card, it's on the inside too!

This was my first time playing with Tacky Tape die cuts and glitter. Boy was it fun! I wanted to give a close up of the frame.
In case your wondering what the tacky tape die cuts are like and how you use them I took pictures along the way.
First, this is what it looks like.
I peeled off one side and put it in a bowl.
I then sprinkled the glitter over it and patted it down to make sure it was on there good.

I cut out some eggs from plaid designer paper, stamped the butterflies and sentiment, and threaded some ribbon through the hole in the tag. After playing around with different ways to display the eggs on the front of the slash folder, I decided I needed some grass for the eggs to sit on. So I pulled out some green cardstock, cut it in a wavy freeform, and sponged the edges with some green ink.
The pocket is so easy to put together - just fold the scored tabs, apply some Killer Red Tacky Tape to the tabs, and press together. Just remember not to adhere the top of the slash - that's where the tag goes in. LOL
