National ScrapBooking Month!
When I saw how bright and cheerful the patterns and colors for our National ScrapBooking Month promotion were, I was completely inspired to create this Milk Carton Flower Pot for Mother's Day. I love how happy this little project turned out to be.
Both the patterned papers and cardstock are from the Dream Pop Promotion. The colors are so joyful, it just screamed "Celebrate Something" to me. And since Mom's Day is right around the corner, what better to celebrate?
I used our Juniper Ink to color our Color Ready Seam Binding (if you've never done this before, it takes about a day to completely dry before you can play with it). After I cut all the individual papers out, I edged them with the Juniper Ink, too. I love inking edges, I think it adds dimension without the additional weight of more paper. It's one of those techniques that allows you the versatility to determine how light or how dark you want the edges to be. I usually start out pretty light-handed and wait for it to dry before deciding whether I want to add more. I used Slate Ink to stamp the leaves and flowers with the Heartfelt Treasures stamp (they're on both sides of the milk carton). Then I pulled out the bling! I think it added just the right amount of pop and shine without being too over the top. I used our Bitty Sparkles, our Blue/Green Sparkles Assortment and our Red/Pink/Purple Sparkles Assortment.
I'm having so much fun playing with this paper pack! The colors are so vivacious.
