Bloom Where You're Planted - A Mini Album

Hi everyone! Allie Gower from My Card Party sharing a mini album I made as a gift using Jodi G. Warner's Blooming Card Kit.

The kit actually has this as a card, and I really didn't modify anything, just added adhesive carefully, allowing all the layers to function as pockets. I especially love that Jodi left room in the very front pockets with some clever box pleats to allow for bulkier items.

I created some easy tags and note cards to match the project. I used lots of ink and paint to distress the edges of everything. The sentiment "bloom where you're planted" was created using a Chomas Pen Holder with a Memento Marker. The font is called "Champagne and Limousines" and it's one of my favorites.

Inside, I created a smaller outline of the actual card base and added the flower that comes with the card kit, along with a plain mat for another photo. More pages can be added, and photos or journaling could also go above on the top flap.

When I purchase a kit, I love to have lots of options. The kits at SVG Attic are so versatile and fun to use in new and exciting ways.
