 I created is this mini album I received as a gift from my friend Jessica. She gave me the kit so what a better way to make the mini album using IAR flowers and products. I used the black roses code:R40-274, new sprays code:SP1, brown leaves code:K1-828. It turned out very pretty and the new flower sprays go well with the whole warm color palette. It's an odd shape mini so I worked hard to position the patterned paper just right. The paper I used is from DCW the new collection, along with some pretty gold trim, white doily, a heart charm, TH vintage key, and a brown bead long hanging charm.I binded the mini with basket rope twine. Hope you like it and try to create your own odd shape mini using the beautiful IAR products. My friend even made the box for storing the mini.

"The Life in Me" Embroidery Hoop Layout.

Hi everyone,
I created this embroidery hoop layout for my IAR July Design team project. I also made a how-to step-by step video, but unfortunately something went wrong when editing and it cut off last 2 minutes of video. However these photos show the end result of the hoop layout.
I used the Cherry Blossoms mix color pack Code:53-427 and the Mini Roses Code:T30-578. I also used the new BOBUNNY "Gabrielle" paper collection, teal rose trim, bling, fussy cut outs from the paper line, and Making Memories metal letters.
Hope you guys like it and try to create a hoop layout :)
