      We got a piece of 12X12 Cardboard in our June kit. What are you going to do with it? I have some ideas in my tutorial on some ways you can incorporate cardboard into your projects on the blog today: http://swirlydoos.blogspot.com/2013/06/incorporating-cardboard-into-your.html So, check it out, and if you have a way that you like to use cardboard, tell us on this thread, and post a pic if you can!

        Rae, great video! And thanks for the tip about putting the cardboard on it's side before spraying, I never knew about that. I've been peeling it dry because of the warping for like forever.
        Btw, I do like to keep some of the top layer on, no real reason, or maybe it's because of the above.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

              Thank you! That was trial and error about putting the cardboard on the side- the wilting really pisses me off, and this way works, most of the time.

              I also like to keep some of the top layer on sometimes. 🙂

                    LOl…that's what you told Ang but I'm on this whole reducing the clutter kick right now…I have one that is functional. I don't NEED a pretty one (but I really really really want one.)

                        Great video Rae and great tip about spraying it with water. This is a layout of my daughter that I did a few years ago using cardboard. I just thought the cardboard kind of went with the photo. This is another photo that my daughter's friend (the aspiring photographer) took for her portfolio.

                        Awesome tip about the water – would have never thought of that! BTW RAE – the link from the website does not link to here on this thread on the forum.

                        VERY pretty layout Steph!!!
