If you've followed me for a while, you have probably heard me say at least once, that I have a black thumb. I can never get anything to grow. Miraculously, I've manged to keep three of my succulent's alive for about a year now. The Growing Garden Stamp and Die set were perfect for documenting my photo.
I started with the cute watering can from the stamp set and stamped it onto a pink striped patterned paper. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I also added the cute butterfly from the stamp set to the center of the watering can. I wanted to create my title with the Home Grown sentiment, so I stamped it on a 3x4 card from the Spring Market collection by Carta Bella. I placed the watering can under the title and stamped on the cute lady bug to complete the 3x4 card.
For the left hand side of my Traveler's Notebook layout, I cut my photo to the same dimension as the 3x4 card and placed them side by side. Then I used a couple of the cute gardening tools from the Stamp set to create a cluster on the left side of my photo.
Combining the Stamp set and coordinating die makes it so easy to create your own embellishments! Make sure you visit the Technique Tuesday store to check out all of the new releases and join in the Blog Hop to see what the other Designers created!
