Power Poppy Friday!

Hello Everyone!!  It's time for another Power Poppy Friday and a chance to have a peek at some of the creations the Bloom Brigade have been making this week!!  I have another Teacher Journal for you today using Power Poppy's Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher digital stamp.  I particularly like the digi stamps for journals because you can enlarge them for a bigger journal and then shrink them for the matching card!  ;-)  This particular journal is for my daughter's yr 3 teacher.  Now because this is a 'Sweet Treat' (a gift for someone this festive season), it's also perfect for this month's Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge!!  Why don't you join us this month - you could win a Power Poppy Stamp Set of your choice!!

Today is the very last day of the Australia School Year and it's my middle child's last ever day of Primary School!  You look back and think where did that time go??  I can't believe he's off to High School next year!  (For all the American folks wondering, we don't have a Middle School here, just a middle school section at the High School - he's not a freak genius jumping several grades!)

I covered the journal withe some Kaisercraft paper from my stash, using a spiral punch for the side and sticking it down well with some X-press It High Tack Double Sided Tape.  Down the side is more Kaiserpaper matted with cream card and tied with some So Saffron ribbon.  I've printed the Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher digi image onto X-press It Blending Card and then coloured with Copics (G40, G43, G46, Y21, Y35, Y38, W1, W3, W5, B0000).  I've cut this out with Adorning Squares, matting with So Saffron cut with the larger of the dies and glued to the front.  To finish I die cut the initials in yellow and added a couple of chocolate coloured pearls to the top.

Here's the matching card I made - instead of putting the initials, I've used the sentiment from Bloomin' Wonderful clear set for the bottom.  I've also shrunk the image compared to the size of the one on the journal, but coloured it the same so it would match!  :)
