Carta Bella-Wildflower Blog Share

Hello and welcome to my blog.  If you have arrived here from Jenn's blog  you are in the right place.  At the bottom I will have a list of the participants so you can go back if you missed any.  I am so excited to be participating in this blog share today.  Some very talented ladies and friends of mine are embarking on a new adventure and I am honored to help them spread the word.  Gia Lau, Lacey Gasper, Jody Speigelhoff and Erica Thompson, all former Memory Works Consultants and design team members are launching a new scrapbook kit company called  Clique Kits.  It is exciting and I hope you all stop by and check them out. 

The following quote is our inspiration for the projects and products used in this blog share.  I had so much fun with this line of products.  I just love the colors and designs.  Lacey Gasper designed some die cuts and flare buttons for us to use that coordinated beautifully with the main products.  Thanks Lacey for your talent!

I decided to make a "Junk Journal" for this blog share.  I love mini albums and the possibilities of things to put in them.  I have lots of little tags and I can use for pictures, quotes or journaling.  I am only limited by my imagination!

This is my front cover.  I like to layer and boy did this kit have good stuff to do this with!
Close up of front cover.

On the corners of the front cover I used these neat antiqued brass corners that I had in my stash. 

The next pictures are my inside pages.  I used a variety of tags and embellishments.  I also used some different things for pulls on my tags.

On the edge of everyother page I used an edge punch just for texture and variety.  I love how it looks lacy and softens up the pages a bit.
I had so much fun working with this kit!  I can't wait to see all the wonderful products and kits that the ladies at Clique Kits come up with.
Be sure to leave a comment on every blog because there will be a prize given to one lucky reader!  If you are not a follower of my blog or the other ladies I encourage you to become one.  These ladies that I am lucky enough to be associated with are some of the most talented in the industry! 
Your last stop is back at Clique Kits.  Thanks so much for hopping by today and I  hope you have been inspired to create something beautiful for your world today!
