Use It Up Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper

I'm on a mission to use up samples of Designer Series Paper that are now discontinued. They started out as 3 x 3 squares with a hole punched in one corner so they could be on a book ring. I don't want to just throw them away- there's nothing wrong with them other than you can't buy the paper anymore. So I'm coming up with all kinds of layouts to use them and thought I would share the cards I've made. If you have these papers, here are some ideas of how to use them! If not, replace them with other papers you do have. And let me know what you come up with- I'd love to see your cards!
Here are the supplies for these two cards...
Stamp Sets: Vintage Verses (Sale-A-Bration), Basic Label (single stamp), Everything Eleanor
Colors: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist (according to Stampin' Up! the coordinating color is Not Quite Navy, but I thought it was too dark)
Accessories: Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper, Apothecary Accents Framelits
