Hello and welcome to JustRite's Garden Tour Blog Hop. I'm experiencing computer & camera technical difficulties today, so I'm going to just load my photos (some are from my iPhone, so I apologize for the quality) and come back to explain/add later ... so sorry! (EDITED: Photos have been replaced)!
Today, we are showing you projects using JustRite's new January stamp set releases, which are now shipping! I adore these beautiful new botanical images -- they are fabulous to color! I made this seed packet template sized to fit JustRite's new botanical series of flowers and 25 & 15-point fonts!
The finished size of the packet measures about 3" x 3.75" -- perfect for a card front or scrapbook page. You'll be able to find the download for the seed packet template on my download page as soon as I get my computer problems solved. (EDITED: The file is loaded now, thanks for your patience!)
I'll also have some more photos on how I created the seed packet in the next few days -- again, when I get my camera and computer communicating to each other! All the "printing" on the seed packet cover was customized with JustRite's fonts! EDITED: You can see how I laid out the wording on my blocks over on this post at the JustRite Inspiration Blog.
After stamping the seed packet in black ink, I colored it with these Copic markers and Spica Glitter Pens in Pink, Sky Blue, Lavender, and Orange:
I added Copic R000 to the background of the flowers after this photo was taken. The edges of the packet were aged with Distress Ink. The packet was added to a 6-inch scrapbook page of my youngest daughter. The journaling was done on Spellbinders' Fancy Tags die cut with a Copic Spica Glitter Pen (Black) -- Yes, they are photo & archival safe for your scrapbook pages!
I also have another example using this seed packet template over on the JustRite Inspiration Blog today!
