Barrow Of Blooms

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well. It is a hot one here with temperatures in the 90's. Emilia has been spending a lot of time in the pool to stay cool while I have been sitting on the swing reading Twilight. I started with the last book in the series so I am reading them from the beginning now.
Today I want to share a project with you that I started a few weeks ago for a CR84FN challenge (Pink, Green and Cream) but didn't get it done it time. I finally finished it yesterday and am entering it this weeks Shabby Tea Room Challenge which is to use your favorite papers and embellishments.

I started by using the Bouncing Baby Buggy Template from My Time Made Easy for my base. The patterned paper on the sides is from Beatriz Jennings Etsy shop. I love her digital papers.I used some of the pieces from the The Barrow Of Blooms template for the handles and wheels the rest I created by hand. Paper lace was added to the sides and a handmade flower was added to front panel.
After I was done making the wheel barrow I decided to make some matching seed packets.

The packets were made with the MTME Simple Seedling Cut file. I stamped the main image from the Garden Variety Stamp set on vintage cream cardstock after cutting out the middle with the PTI Seed Packet Frame Die. My favorite kind of embellishments are handmade flowers. I originally saw these on Pinterest. I finally got a chance to make some using this tutorial Beautiful Blooms dies 2 and 3 and Berry Sorbet Cardstock. I love how they turned out and think they make a great addition to the seed packets. Here is a closeup of the flowers. I tied the seed packets shut with some Sweet Blush Satin Ribbon.

I am really happy with how this turned out. I hope you like it too. I will be back Saturday with a new Sketch For You To Try. Until then I hope the rest of your week is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
