Urban Rhapsody

Have you checked out Guv's blog for her 40 days post today?

I really love the K&Co Urban Rhapsody range, the colours are nicely muted and the birdies are beautiful. My mum wanted a place to store the plant tags from her garden so I made her a little book full of pockets for her birthday.

I used a sheet of Active Imagination paper which I cut into 6x6 pieces and stuck to the front and back of 2 pieces of chipboard to make the covers. I then cut some cardstock to 6x12 and folded it to make tabbed pockets. (If you want a pattern for this post a comment to let me know and I'll try and work out how to post it on here!) The new Core'dinations cardstock would be good for this, especially if you want shabby chic look, just sand it lightly to distress it and expose the different colour underneath.The lovely blingy frame on the front is in the sale at the moment and comes with 2 cute photo corners which I'm saving for another time! I backed it with a scrap of paper and stamped the title on (you could print your title on the pc and stick it behind the frame instead)

My mum is going to draw a little plan of each part of the garden and pop each one into a pocket with the relevant plant tags, care information, etc for the plants in that area.
