Sweet Sentiments of Spring

This project is a slight departure from my usual style.  I was inspired to make this little book when I scored the Matchbook die at a local crafty outlet.  I decided to use Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments as the theme, since I could really use a dose of spring!  It has been a tough winter in Kalamazoo, Michigan!

Happy National Craft Month:  There is a full tutorial for this project over here on the Graphic 45 blog.  

Inside I affixed my pages with ribbon.  The holes were reinforced with eyelets to give it a finished look. 

My love of tissue tape shines through again.  I framed each of my pages with the trusty tape I love so much.

Here is a better picture of the eyelets.   I always find vintage ones at garage sales and I love them.  

I can't wait until the spring weather heralds in the garage sale season, it has been a while since I have been junking.




  1. Delightful! I am with you. I can't wait for the first garage sales!

  2. Great project and I, too, love finding great stuff at garage sales to use in my art.


All the comments and feedback you leave affirms my creative spirit on a very deep level. I am grateful for your time and readership!
