This is one of my favorite layouts and I currently have it hanging in a frame in my livingroom. All supplies are by CTMH except for unknown flower eyelets: Let’s Get Together B&T papers, Colonial White and Cranberry cardstock, cranberry ink, and C1271 Treasures of the Heart stamp set. Layout inspired by CTMH Imagine book.

I have lots of pics so this may take a bit to load…
All supplies are CTMH:

- Stamp Sets: Free Spirit, June Word Puzzle, Friendship Blessings, Spot on Backgrounds, Playful Flourishes, April Word Puzzle, Celebrate Life, A Friend Is…, and Made by Me.
I used a blending pen to color in the flowers on the front cover. The cover was very easy to stamp on, just lay the book open and hold flat with the ribbon tucked under. Now I want to do more of a “boy” one. I’ll share when I get it done but it could be awhile.
Mulberry paper is a light-weight, semi-transparent type of handmade style paper. It used to be quite popular in scrapbooking and has fazed out although there’s no reason why you can’t still use it. I found this page from the past with mulberry paper and it also includes a tag (yesterday’s topic). Mulberry paper can be used as a background, as an embellishment, or (my favorite) as a frame. You can cut it for a straight edge, or you can wet it with a waterbrush or paintbrush and then tear it for a unique look.
