Bloom Passport Book

By Ginger Ropp


“This months’ challenge is #G45LightSide. I love the pretty pastel colors in the new Bloom collection and wanted to create a fun little journal book. This would be great to document all of the fun things in your spring garden. In keeping with the light side theme, I used some ivory waxed cording to bind the book and signatures.  I even used some pastel papers for the signatures and adorned them with lovely snippets of the pretty papers from the Bloom collection. I added a flower to the back inside cover that was created with the fabulous flower dies that are available in the G45 Large Tag die set.” ~Ginger

What a fabulous little mini album.  Love the hand beading on the binding and the light and springy elements.  Join us in thanking Ginger for sharing her talents in the comments below.  We thank you as well for following our blog.  Have a wonderful day and as always... 

Happy Papercrafting!

What a petty journal book! I love how you were able to match the beautiful beads to the color palette of the gorgeous G45 papers.
