Ephemera's Vintage Garden - Ephemera's Heartsong - Project #3

Hello, my friends!

I have a fun new project to share with you today!

This is my third project using the wonderful "Ephemera's Heartsong" kit 
from Ephemera's Vintage Garden
Guess what?...The journal kit is even 50% off!
  You can find it HERE.

I must say that I think this is one of my favorite kits from EVG.
It is so cheerful and versatile!

For my project I made a sweet little tag book!
I printed out the Jumbo Tags, cut them out, and used them as a template for the album.
I cut a multitude of tags out of the Journal Kit pages,
and then added in a few cardstock tags.
I adhered them all back to back in a pleasing order.
I inked all the edges with Distress ink, and shagged everything up with my Distrezz It All.
Finally, I punched a hole at the top of each page and slipped them on a binder ring.
Then all that was left was to embellish the pages.
Not much was needed because this kit is so full of goodness!

I've got lots of pictures to share.
I've placed the pages side by side without the ring to make it easier to take pictures.
Here we go:

This is the front cover, and one of the Jumbo Tags.
I fussy cut some extra mushrooms, and popped them up with foam tape.
I added a pretty pink bow to the binder ring.

These papers are so pretty!
I simply added a flower in one corner.

On the left page I added a belly band, and a stopper.
These hold the sweet little envelope.
The envelope holds some journal tags.
Finally, I added a flower to the belly band.

On the right page, I added a punched pocket to the bottom.
In the pocket is another fun envelope the holds some mini postcards.
Another little journal spot is added to the pocket.

On the left, a simple flower was added.
On the right, I fussy cut the butterfly and turned it into a  tag pocket.
The sentiment was also fussy cut and adhered.

On the right, I fussy cut a flower and made a tag pocket.
I also added a "wish" ticket tag

On the left I created a tag pocket out of a journal card, 
then added a "believe" ticket.
On the right, I fussy cut one of the cute girls, adhered her on one side, and tucked some tags behind her.

More wonderful bits from the kit!

On the right I used a corner of the paper to create an angled pocket.
I tucked in more sweet journal cards, and added the "inspire" ticket.

Another butterfly pocket on the left side,
and a simple flower on the right.

Pretty pages!

Another flower pocket and the "dream" ticket.

Here I used the other Jumbo Tag for the back cover.
A simple flower and bit of lace and it was finished!

Below is one final picture of the front and back cover.
I added coloured eyelets for the binder ring.

Wow, these are lovely tags...Love the papers and designs and your awesome paper-piecing. So glad you joined our 200th Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week. We have a new Challenge today and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Colossians 2:6-8 which says, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ." Have a blessed day!
