How Does Your Garden Grow?

Stampin' Up! as you may be aware, see above if not lol, has a new independent demonstrator:  me!

Yesterday I received lots of goodies from Stampin' Up! and after unpacking a very large box and finding some bright and sunny paper I got to making a mini album.

This is a 4x4 inch mini with 6 pages inside with space also in between each page for either adding more photos or adding some journaling.  I used my Sizzix Spiral Flower die, which I purchased from Stampin' Up! and also used my Sizzix Eclips Flowers and Phrases cartridge to make the flowers.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I also added some Glossy Accent to the roses to create a rain effect and used tweezers from Susan's Garden set also from Sizzix.

I added a tag from my stash and a variety of washi tape on the page.  Using the banner punch and some dimensionals I added these to the photo in complimentary colours. 

This is my eldest daughter, who now has black hair around 20 years ago, she will not be happy with me as she hates the way I used to dress her!

As this is a mini album my photos required trimming.  My dad's garden used to be beautiful as he was an avid gardener so not to lose the opportunity to show this I used a butterfly punch to make butterflies from the part of the photo I trimmed, which had a wonderful bloom of flowers.  In real life the butterflies look amazing.

In between each page there is an opportunity to add more photos or tags.  Stampin' Up! have this amazing tab punch just out, which everyone is scrambling to buy.  It is so incredibly versatile and crafts around the globe are all. Asking some wonderful projects using it.  I added some tag toppers using the punch in some gumball green cardstock around the top of each side of the tag.  The tag card is Cherry Cobbler.  The journaling is from Smash cards I have in my stash.

Hope you enjoyed this.  I will make a video tomorrow so please come back again to see this in greater detail.

Take care of u.
