2014 Journal and bookmark

Hello Flourishes friends! Welcome to our December Sneak Peeks! Once again we’re proud to begin our New Release Sneak Peeks to you, they have a wonderful theme of “blossoming". Today’s set joins a gorgeous family of sets and many of you have been looking for it to complete the collection. Introducing….
NumbersInBlossomGraphic
   

 Part of the special Flourishes Blossoms Collection, numbers never looked so pretty! This 4 by 6" set features hand-drawn numerals by Marcella Hawley that have been embellished with beautiful florals. This set offers a one-of-a-kind way to create gorgeous correspondence, birthday or anniversary items, or even home decor. Set is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After, Letters in Blossom and Summer Blossoms.
 A new year coming means I need a new journal so this is a little gift for me. Yes that is two gifts for myself this year, I am spoiling myself. ;-)  Here is the matching bookmark with the journal using the matching Letters In Blossom set stamped on classic white card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Colored with Copic Markers:




I used Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One die for the top and bottom and tied in my designer paper under the cut edges. tied off some Color Made Easy Emerald Coast Paradise Aqua  ribbon with jute twine and button combo.
This is the front and oh do I like how this turned out. I love blue so I obviously went with that since this is for me. I have a base layer of Color Made Easy True Blue card stock with some Classic Kraft card stock for the base with designer paper. Die cut a Spellbinders base shape that has Crochet white ribbon and Color Made Easy paradise Aqua ribbon over the center. My Numbers in Blossom are colored using the same above Copic Collections. Added some flourishes jewels and a single Prima from my friend Pat. Voila!
Blossoming inspiration is yours along the way today with our talented design team and this set. And, while you’re hopping and looking at their creations, don’t forget to try to figure out….
