So excited to show you my Secret Garden Tag Star Album

I am so excited to share this project with you.  I think this will definitely be in my top 10 favorite creations for a long long time.  No I don't have a list written down just in my head but I am thrilled how this project came out.  

Well as you have already figured out I love love love Graphic 45.  The new collection A Secret Garden is one of my favorites.  This paper is really popular at the LSS where I teach too.  Everyone loves it!  
I love looking at the  Graphic 45 Blog as there are the most amazing artist from around the world and wow what they do with Graphic 45 is stunning.  
So recently I saw a post with a 
 Tag Star Book by Sharon Ngoo.  I knew right away I wanted to try this amazing book and that A Secret Garden would be perfect for this.  
The change I made was instead of using the smaller Graphic 45 Tags I used the Larger ones.  
I taught this class yesterday and the ladies loved it and were so happy with their completed books.  



Here is the book closed.  
The seam bind ribbon is colored with ink and we tied a lock and key on it also from G45. 
The Secret Garden title background was cut with Elegant Edges  

Book open 

The way the pages are cut and glued they form a double frame for each window.  
We used Chipboard package 1 
Added some twine and Stickles here and  there. 
Here we punched leaves and cut out flowers with the Cricut. 
This is my favorite page with the door on the right. 
I found some little wood birds at Michaels we added to each corner and we punched a leaf edge with a MS punch I had that matched leaves in backgreound.  
Edges done with another MS punch and scraps 
This is the back.  

Hope you enjoyed my project and that you will check out the Graphic 45 Blog or following them on Facebook.

  7. WOW Suzanne, what an amazing project! I love all the additional embellies you used! It gives it all such a warm and dreamy look.
