Designer's Workshop by Sherry Wright

Garden Journal & Seed Envelopes by Sherry Wright
Prima white flutter vine (sold out)... this would be a beautiful replacement: Blue Songbird Vine by Prima
Mini Calendar Journaling Cards by Webster's Pages
October Afternoon alphabet cards (sold out - will be reordering)
1. Use a pre-made 6x6 album or cut up a cardboard box into two 6x6 sheets. Pull the covering off the cardboard to show the corrugated areas underneath. Brush with white paint. These will be your cover and back page.
2. Cut a 5"x4" piece of pattern paper and adhere to front. Adhere trim to top of paper, envelope to right side, and "G" alphabet card to center. Spray lightly with lemongrass glimmer mist.
3. Adhere flower & butterfly branch to left side. Run twine through button and adhere to lower left side.
4. For inside cover page cut pattern paper to fit, add photo, flower chipboard piece and cut out butterfly.
5. For next page use calendar page adding calendar month (sprayed with glimmer mist) to lower corner.
6. After calendar page spray envelope with glimmer mist, add label and embellish.
7. Repeat steps 5 &6 for the entire planting season, alternating calendar page and seed envelope. The last page will be your cardboard back.
8. Punch holes in cover and continue lining up and punching through all calendar pages and envelopes until you get to the back cover. Run metal rings through holes and tie vine ribbon around ring.
Use the album to keep track of planting, collecting seeds for next year, harvest time, and recording how things are growing ect. :)
