English Garden Mini Album ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Whenever I pick up the pretty English Garden papers I have a little tune go through my head: 'How many kinds of sweet flowers grow in an English country garden....' The version I know best is by The Wiggles (an Australian kid's music group): *click here*.

So... it's been fun.

Well hello if you've clicked through from our August Facebook showcase!! Always great to have you stop by :)

Our Artisan team theme this week is the English Garden designer papers and the Garden in Bloom stamp set. I can't wait to go hopping!

Want to make your own? Check out the concept by Anna K in the video and my own tweaks below. Stampin' Up! totally have the goods to make these look fabulous!! If you make one of your own leave me a photo on my Facebook page. I love seeing your creations :)

I used these measurements for the rectangles inside my cover.
4 1/4 x 2 1/2"
4 1/4 x 1 1/4"
4 1/4 x 3 1/4"
4 1/4 x 1 1/4"
4 1/4 x 2"

Each of the 7 inner pages measures 6 1/8 x 4" (with a 1/8" spine on each insert to allow room for the thickness of photos).

I didn't use any magnets - just the twine (keeping it simple). And I couldn't bear to cover the beautiful English Garden flowers on the front with any other detail. I look forward to filling it with pics of all the grandkids for my Mum. Sorry - didn't quite get around to that before this post!



Let's go check out what Teneale has made! Be sure to flip through all 14 blogs and have some fun ;)
