Using Journaling notes

I've been waiting anxiously for all the new product to start arriving in the store.  In the meantime I've been trying to use up what I already have and, slowly, clean and organize my scraproom.  I discovered I have quite a few pads of journaling notes.  Mostly Making Memories ones. 
I put together a couple of layouts using those journaling notes as partial mattes for my photos. Maybe I can give you some ideas on using up your extras.

I bought the Making Memories pad of journaling pages when I picked up the coordinating line of papers and embellishments. I used a few pages of the pad for my layouts at that time, but still have more than half the pad left.
On the layout I used 3 pages to matte my photo and a 4th to make the pleated strip and the piece at the top of my page.
The stickers are all 7 Gypsies from their travel line.

On 'my nerd' I used only one journaling note.  Everything else (photos and embellishments) are layered on top.  This was  a really quick simple layout.  Especially because I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.
