April Create a garden Bog Hop

I Double Dog Dare You

The group this month was Double Dog Dared to create a garden project since April Showers brings May Flowers whether it be a card, lay-out, with their creativity being the only limitations!!!!! We had several talented crafters that took that challenge for today's hop!!!!

From Lynne's stash, if you remark on each of the blogs, one lucky winner will receive flowers and buttons to add to their collection to create their own garden!!!!

 For my project I created a 4 inch square mini album to hold pictures of my spring plantings!
The album was made with one 12x12 sheet of card stock and is an adaptation of the meandering mini book.
It  has two page pockets and 3 diagonal pockets. I will confess I am Embellishment challenged and am always afraid to over do so I under do. This cover was a real challenge for me I like it but it was nerve wracking to say the least! LOL

 For the cover I used the Spring Cottage cartridge and cut the gate 3 times and stacked them for dimension and strength. the ferns were cut from the same cartridge The Roses were cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge art1.5 inches  The sentiment on the cover came from "Pink By Design" Artisan Tags set.

I used the Art Philosophy cartridge and the Mothers day Bouquet cartridges  to cut out all the the flower and leaf shapes

 The Tags and the tiny butterflies were punched wit a couple Creative Memories punches and the tags were embossed with an assortment of embossing folder. All the patterned paper was from an SEI bundle I got for cheap at Tuesday Morning.

My printer ink is low yellow is empty so my photo prints look off.

While rummaging through my stash I came across this seed packet holder I made last year and thought I'd add it to my garden post. I can't remember what cartridge it came from will have to research that one.

Our list of talented, creative hoppers include:

Big Blog Hugs, Janet
