January Paper Trail Blog Hop, WINGS

Welcome to the January 2011 edition of the Paper Trail Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Mary's blog Road to Peace of Mind, I am sure you already have fallen in love with the new Wings paper and how she used it on her beautiful project!!

I was challenged this month to use a Level 1 Wings kit with our new black accessories and our 12" assortment Flip Flaps. I'll be honest with you, I am not so big on scrapping as much as stamping and card making, so this was more challenging than I really want to admit!

First photo is my project with the Flip Flaps closed. I used 2 12x6" Flip flaps and attached them to open like French doors with the equivalent of a double layout being revealed as shown below. I created two paper flowers from one of the included B&T papers to embellish the front. The letters on the front and inside layouts are part of the Stickease assortment included with the Level 1 Wings kit.

I chose my husband's parents' gardens as my subject, using photos I took when we were out in Seattle the summer of 2009. Their garden is full of fruits and vegetables which adorn their table all summer and into the fall. Much is canned for the winter months, too. Bee keeping has been a hobby for my father-in-law for many years. We love all the gifts that we receive from their wonderful garden!

I cut a tag from one of the pre-printed pages and made a little pocket behind one of the center photos for my journalling. I'm thinking this may be a little small for all I want to say about their garden, I may have to add to it.

Since I was a bit behind on getting my items ready for the Paper Trail blog hop my daughter, Alyssa (also a CTMH consultant), jumped in to help with a couple of cards done with Wings. She also used the January Stamp of the Month Set, "Find your Style" and our new Bohemian alphabet.

All these items can be found on my Close to my Heart website in our January Inspirations brochure. Click on the photo in the lower right corner when you visit my website, Paper Boutique. There are some deep discounts on the stamp sets when you purchase the Wings Workshop on the Go. Please go look, you won't want to miss out!

Now to see more with Wings, go visit Erica at From the Heart.
