This is an 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" journal made with the newly released Petticoat Ephemera Journal Kit from Tsunami Rose Designs. "Petticoat Ephemera" is a grungy shabby chic printable journal that is full of vintage feminine elements and of course FULL of flowers! 


Kit include:
-10 pages that will print (20) 5x7 journal pages
-6 pages of sentiments, ephemera, cutouts,tags and envelopes
-Front covers, inside covers and a full lined page for more journaling 


There are endless possibilities on what you can do with this kit, print as many times as you need.
Simply print out the pages and begin assembling your journal - it's that easy




I print out all of the pages, cut and trim everything and organize the cutouts and tags before beginning any layouts.

Then I match them up with my papers.  

These kits are so easy to work with. 
 I absolutely love all the colors and flowers.



Between each of the decorated pages is 2 sheets of lined journaling pages for lots of writing.

    Easter Blessings



    Monday morning means it's time for a new challenge at FOSTV at Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps





    Somehow again, I've managed not to have any type of Easter Stamps for my DT card so I had to improvise.  I ordered one to use for this challenge, but it hasn't arrived yet so I've used an image from  the Lots of Words set which you can purchase here.  

                                      

    I embossed the image with Recollections Snow embossing powder and colored with water color pencils.  The sentiment was cut from my Cricut using the Easter Blessings digital download.
