Hi everyone! The theme of the week is "garden" and it sure is timely! This year we tried the "garden tub" that little ones can use to practice gardening while at the same time decorating the garden. My 4-year-old daughter participated and had a great time with her dad, while I snapped pictures. We had to capture the right moment between father and daughter.
For this, I chose to make a 12x12 page for this album. You can agree that the Bloom Collection by Maggie Holmes is perfect for this theme. For the background, I have not changed my habits. As always, I used Bazzill white yardstick underneath my layout :)
First, I stapled a large pink and white striped piece of paper and then layered two floral papers on top, simply to recall the theme of gardening. Before pasting the pictures, I added a few ephemera tags and a Project Life card. I then added a few stitches on top of the pictures.
Then, I added the nice banner from the chipboard sheet. This introduced several colors. Thus, I added elements to go specificially with this banner, such as the cute little pink tassel I placed on the tag. To finish decorating my page, I added some stickers, also from the Bloom Collection.
Finally, I used a typewriter for my journaling and cut out strips of text. I love doing that and I think it adds a nice effect on pages or in mini albums. Personally, I don't enjoy writing by hand.
I don't think I will ever get tired of this beautiful collection by Maggie Holmes and I hope my layout will inspire you!

Hello CP friends! So excited that this week we are featuring Gardens theme. Whenever I think about gardens, floral elements immediately popped into my mind. I am a HUGE fan of any type of pretty floral! And probably that's one of the reasons why I can relate & can't stop using the Bloom collection on my projects :) With that theme in mind, I took the opportunity to decorate in my gold planner. Simply because everything looks good with gold *wink*
To create the dashboard and decorative cover page, all you need are a few supplies like patterned paper that will work as base and all the pretty embellishments (floral ephemera, die-cuts, clips, chipboard stickers, etc.) that you can add as you decorate.
The dashboard (on the left) is useful especially when you want to add any pretty elements on your planning pages. You can always grab those and make your pages pretty & interesting!
The decorative cover page (on the right) will be great as a monthly cover for your daily/weekly planning. You can always add the month for reference.
By keeping or changing things around in your planner will keep you going and it's a fun way to keep up with the new products as well. Isn’t that a perfect excuse? *haha*
Don't you just love that cute little tassel? That is definitely a fun little piece to add to your planner!
It's absolutely fun to personalize your planner and of course it brings out your personality, own unique style & design! Try it out with CP products today!
