City Crafter Strawberry Farm


Yummmm...
fresh red, ripe strawberries with real whipped cream perhaps sitting on a thick piece of pound cake or just plain in a bowl (the way I eat them). I can taste them now! They're a favorite warm weather treat, right?... and for this week Kirsty of City Crafter Challenge Blog has given a challenge of creating a project that includes strawberry/s. 
I still had some papers
and buttons from one of my old Pixie Dust Paperie kits that fit the bill to perfection. So, for week two of my Guest Design spot, I made this strawberry journal...


I am addicted to making 
mini albums and journals. Every time I look at a paper collection, I think, "what kind of album will this make?" Yowl... I LOVE creating them... I LOVE using them... and I especially LOVE giving them away! So, please let me show you...


This journal has tons
of journaling and photo spots. The photo spinner is attached with a strawberry brad and tucks behind the border strip.



Aren't these papers
just ideal for a summer time journal? You could tuck in some recipes for shortcake or a fruit based bar-b-que sauce. Oh man, I'm really getting hungry!



A double page
that folds over... room for photos... and the other side...


has several journaling
tags and space for even more photos.


Go grab yourself
some paper and a strawberry image and create something pretty. What a fun challenge theme... for a fun time of year! Hop over to CCCB and see what the Design Team have created to inspire you... some beautiful stuff over there, ladies!

Thanks for stopping by!
Linda

Fantastic! I'm in the middle of an album myself. It's a commission and it's not going to be as loaded as I would normally make it with embellishments. It sure is fun to dabble in a different end of the crafty pool a bit. Gorgeous album Linda! Hugs!
