The Craft Garden

I have really splendid news. I have joined the lovely design team over at The Craft Garden.  Kerry specialises in lovely flower goodies from Prima in nice usable quantities.

Kerry has sent me the lovely new mini collections from CHA.   I played with Road Trip first of all.

I have created a mini-book all ready for the photos from our holiday to Menorca recently.

I'm a real sucker for travel goodies and when they're cute like these they are such a joy to play with.

I wanted to do something a little fun as well as quirky.  I cut out the characters from one of the papers and used the pattern as inspiration for decorating the page.

I like different types of page, so I used a Basic Grey Mini-book as a template to create this double-tag page.

The green page is actually a pocket which can hold tickets and other ephemera - I'm sure you're like me and keep all those silly ticket stubs of your trips.

I have put my stamps to good use adding more detail to pages, but essentially the entire book was made from a mini kit plus some extra card stock, ribbon and dew drops.

I won't bore you with all the photos of the pages but here is a sample of them all.  The paper set can be found here for just £2.40.  Add a little of your own cardstock and voila!  A fab holiday album.

Congratulations to the other fab ladies joining the team:

Pop along to The Craft Garden Blog for the full announcement and details of the monthly challenge.
