I've been looking for a way to document some of the lovely flowers that my One True Love plants for us each year. This year, he took a bunch of photos (often times it's just me), I think because they were particularly beautiful. When I received my package from Paper Issues for the current issue (did I mention that it starts today?), I knew that these bags, stickers, twine, and tags would go together quite nicely for a little mini book!
I used one of the bigger bags for the front and back covers (it's just folded around some card stock). Inside the bag I created a shaker for the cover (totally fun)!
Next, I printed photos of flowers that included an array of colors (2.5 inches by 2.5 inches) and paired the photos with the bags, tags, and stickers from Whisker Graphics. I also used Gelatos throughout the book (one of my favorite things, of course)!
I received some twine in my Whisker Graphics bundle of goodies. So I used those for some added embellishment on some of the pages and with the tags.
I found some quotes about gardens and flowers to pair up with each photo.
I did use some washi, alphas, and punches from my stash, a few other little items here and there (and gelatos) but all the big stuff you see is from Whisker Graphics. I love how this turned out!
I had to change my thread and bobbin A LOT for this project. LOL
