more botanical bliss...

I've been busy making lots of Christmas cards this week, so it was a very nice distraction to put together this simple card together using pieces from the gorgeous Aromatica Botanica kit

I've used the rose A4 paper as a background, a strip of the cream floral tape and embellished it with the purple rose blossom, ribbon rose and cute little flying heart charm

Happy Sunday everyone,

something old..

Here's my first creation using the oh so pretty Aromatica Botanica kit..
This kit combines perfectly with a vintage themed layout so I've chosen to scrap this gorgeous old typewriter I spotted whilst on holiday recently..

I've used quite a few pieces from the kit (couldn't stop myself) including the rose A4 paper, the vintage paper doily, flying heart charm, cream ribbon rose and a strip of the velvet brocade paper I'm off to create some more.. bye for now :)

It’s Coming Up Roses!!

I just loved the book page that came in my Aromatica Botanica kit
It inspired me to do a floral page about our trip to the gardens


I cut up the rose that was on the book page


so intricate and delicate!
I also used some of the fabric tape and the tulle to add some texture and depth to the page


such a simple technique
You just loop the tulle, add the tape to one side and stitch over it, to hold it in place
Other pieces used were the rose blossom and 2 of the gorgeous gorgeous felt leaves.


Can’t wait to see what others create with the kit, it’s just beautiful

Funny Duck!

As soon as I saw the Aromatica Botanica kit I knew I wanted to scrap some photos that I took on a recent trip to the Botanical Gardens
The first page I made was all about a duck that tried to make friends with us
I wanted to capture the funny story so it would be talked about for years to come


On this page I used the paper doily, Rose A4 paper, Floral Velvet Brocade Paper


and imagine my glee when I found that you can actually punch the Fabric tapes


Oh so so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to making another page about our garden adventures!
