I am so sorry to have been away for so long. I will soon begin designing again and I can't wait. I thought I would go back in time and post some of my favorite projects. I completed it in 2011 and I still have it proudly displayed today.
I wanted the cover of the book to be something special. I used lots of beautiful Prima roses in a beautiful crimson color to add depth to my cover. I love the contrast against the kraft colored background. I also used wooden vines to add texture, as well as a metal butterfly also from the Gabrielle collection.
You are going to see me use the word “love” multiple times during this post. I love each and every page of this book. I wanted the first page of the book to greet you with beauty and softness. I used a beautiful journaling spot and I adorned it with flowers and fabric leaves. I finished my page with a delicate wood flourish vine and liquid pearls.
Here I am as a little girl in my little garden. I have already started journaling about all the fun I had watching my flowers grow.
This book has an abundance of journaling pages and pockets. It truly takes brag books to the next level! The Gabrielle collection came with stunning metal trinkets which I used throughout the book.
On the left side of the book I used glittered layered chipboard flourishes to frame my future photo. I left plenty of space in order to slide my photo in the space.
Here is my daughter when she was around 8 years old... and of course, she's surrounded by flowers! I used lace, chipboard, stickers and cameos to adorn my pages.
On the right side you can see where I used another metal cameo from the collection. You can also see my favorite lace at the time from Maya Road. I bought 10 yards of it and 3 years later I still hoard it! It is soft and dainty and I love it!
Surprise! Here I am again still tending to my little piece of heaven. I am an only child and I have always found solace in nature. The "Happy" chipboard banner is from My Mind's Eye.
