Hi there friends. As promised I’m back with a project that uses my new Spellbinders Swirl Bliss Pocket die from the Amazing Paper Grace Collection. I wanted to make something other than a card and I think the pockets lend themselves to so many cool projects – a scrapbook page seemed like a good thing to try out. I talked myself into thinking it was a huge card :-). Remember, baby steps. I had just been to Rogers Gardens in Corona del Mar California with two of my sweet friends – Linda Duke and Tosha Leyendekker. This home and garden destination has exquisite Christmas decorations and room after room of themed displays – we were happy girls and that explains the starry looks in our eyes.
Even though this is pictured from straight on and it’s hard to tell the dimension, I used the pocket die as if it were a cornice and it actually stands out from the page a bit. By putting another pocket on the bottom it frames the picture. Then I used the round element to carry embellishment across the page. I also used Spellbinders Urban Blooms by A Gilded Life for the spiral flowers and I printed all the memory specifics on Spellbinders Baby Buntings by a Gilded Life. The tendrils that cascade down from the flowers are from Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.
This was a stretch for me but it feels great to try something out of my comfort zone :-)

Oh, by the way – are you sitting for a couple of minutes with your cup of coffee? I’m gifting you this link to see a three minute video of Rogers Gardens. Lol, I have to put up a little bit of a disclaimer that I can’t be held responsible for extreme longing, swooning or daydreaming today after you watch :-) I’ve watched it twice and what a way to start the morning!
