Secret Garden






This is the most beautiful paper I have seen in a long time (except Christmas paper of course) I purchased this paper a while ago but had a hard time using it because I wanted just the perfect album to make out of it. This is it, this is the album. I got this idea from LMs Crafty Creations on you tube. She is brilliant and a gift to the You Tube scrapbooking world.  Here is a link to her channel. www.youtube.com/user/LMsCraftyCreations/videos

The paper I used for this creation is Graphic 45’s Secret Garden collection.  It holds enough photos for any occasion you like.  The album is for sale at $100.00
Here is the cover. I left it plain because this paper does not need frills and bling. Its beautiful all by itself. I did put glossy accent on the key and the flower centers at the bottom. Just to add texture and make them pop a little.



When you open the book, it folds open on both sides of the album. The purple cards on the top and bottom open to reveal more space for photos or journaling. They close shut with magnets. 


Then you open it again and you have the pink flaps. The outside flaps open to the right and the inside flaps open to the left.



Inside you will find purple flower paper with pockets to store more memorabilia, photos or to journal notes on. There are little booklets with adorable cards on them and plenty of tags.


Close the sides and open from the center again and you will have green flowers and a vertical belly band on each page in the center and pockets on the sides. Your photos can slide underneath the belly band and it holds them in place. The pockets are filled with more little booklets and journaling cards.


On the same page, the green flowered paper flips up on both sides to reveal a beautiful paper that is filled with words of antique gardens like; seed and grow. The yellow flowers sticker is mounted on card stock and punched out with my scallop punch. The side pockets are journaling cards I mounted on card stock (not from the collection) and made pockets out of them. 






This picture is the other side of the album opening the pink flower pages to the left and to the right. It reveals the purple flower paper just like the left side.



Close that all up and open the inside next page to pretty blue paper. Each side has a horizontal belly band that will hold your photos and these two pages flip up. In the center are two built in booklets with magnetic closure.


Flip up the side papers and there are gorgeous pink flowers. More pockets with little booklets. I left the top part white so if someone wanted to journal or use a 5x7 photo it would be blank. The Secret Garden on the pockets are stickers from the collection put on card stock and placed on the paper.


When you open the inside blue pages, it becomes a brilliant yellow paper full of happy flowers and room for some serious photo collage or memorabilia


One more time and it is this wonderful bird cages and blue birds…. the greenery pops off the page. Its gorgeous. 


The last pages open to the Secret Garden once again. I could not pick the pages I like best in this book. The whole book is wonderful and beautiful. If you interested in this book please email me at ilovesherbearcreations@gmail.com or leave me a comment. 


Thank you for looking!

Happy Un-Birthday to Me!! Every year I post this same unbirthday message. I like it,I do it for me. This year, i have added a photo of me as a baby. This is a photo we did not know even existed. I have come to be friends with my sister from birth Teresa. She gave me this photo of me as a baby. You have no idea how it felt inside to see this...me...for the first time in 50 years....I thank her from the bottom of my heart for this little photo of "me".  8/2/16:  When I celebrate my Un-Birthday ever year, it was something that was celebrated between my Dad, my Mom and I. They are both gone now, and have sadly taken my Un-birthday with them.  Its not a "real" birthday but it was fun while I had it. Mom & Dad would call every year, sometimes cake, sometimes a movie (one year the Muppets Movie), one year a bike, but most years just talking about the memories we had together. I am very sad today. You don't miss something until it is gone, right?   On September 18,…

Autumn is in the Air

I love making autumn photo albums. The colors are always so beautiful. You get to choose from bright patterns or soft elegant leave patterns. Either way, I love them.
 I covered the binding on this with a course ribbon. I love it because it is glittery yet soft.

 Plenty of room for photos. 15 spaces 3 x 3.5 on the waterfall and 6 tags of various sizes. You can always add more photos in the pocket as well.

 I made lots of tags so you can add photos to the fronts and backs or to one side and journal on the other. Lots of space.

 Pretty paper on the waterfall. I love the pumpkins :)

Is this wreath just beautiful? I love it!!
Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please share it for me. Thanks.

WELCOME ZACKERY
In October we were blessed with another Grand~child. Zackery. He is perfect. Such a cutie and so good...omg he seldom cries. 💗 I "needed" to make him a baby book. I had soooo much fun making this album. I used the Bundle of Joy paper from Echo Park. I LOVE this paper.


 The way the ultrasound photos just fell into place with the dates on them and I love the title "Life in the Inside" Stole that from Pinterest.
 Then in the center...Daddy holding his son for the first time...Awww how can you not get emotional at the photo. That is why I placed it in the center.



 First time meeting  my favorite Auntie 💖
 I love photos of the child sleeping on the father. So this one just melts my heart.
 This is another photo that just melts me...Ya, I melt a lot like the Wizard of Oz witch ha ha

 Are those not the most darling flirty eyes? You just want to pinch his cheeks and kiss him all over!!
 Grandma and the twins were the first visitors. Grandma looks so happy…
