Prima Lavender Loaded Envelope Pocket Journal~

With both the and Reneabouquets Etsy staying so busy now, I don't get a lot of extra time for paper crafting projects, but the new Beautiful Board & Printed Beautiful Board Laser Cut Chipboard Creations are so beautiful as is and they allowed me to put this Prima Lavender Loaded Envelope together in a snap!!

I started with a piece of Prima Lavender 12 x 12 Paper  and scored it in half at 6 Inches, folded it and cut it at 9 Inches. I then cut the front panel at a 45 degree angle and then glued the left side, bottom and right side to form a pocket.

Next, came a layer 6 Inch in length layer of  Flower Crown Lace topped with a 
Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Heart Lace Laser Cut Chipboard Border that I cut down to 6 Inches (saving the 2 Inch piece for the top of the Envelope), and then finger rubbing the already Vintage White BBoard with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink to bring out the edges.

I then cut out a sentiment from the Lavender Papers and mounted it into a Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board Small Lavender Lilac Heart Frame, and layered a Beautiful Board Tiny Lacy Heart Frame for a double layer heart effect~YUM!!

Next came layers of flowers from the following flower sets:
with some sweet Beautiful Board Tuck It In Ivy Laser Cut Chipboard that I inked with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink, and then added in detail with a distress marker on. I love these little cut apart pieces, so perfect for tucking into your florals!!

To finish out the envelope part of the project, I added on some True Love Story Butterflies, and then stuck a handcrafted stick pin that I had received from a swap partner into the florals. I used the left over piece of Heart Lace Beautiful Board to accent the top of the envelope.

I then created little pieces to load into my envelope.

A large tag cut from the Lavender Papers, topped with a seam binding bow and accented with a 

Another tag created from the music note paper in the Collection,
and a smaller pull out topped with a Beautiful Board Rose Bit Laser Cut Chipboard, when you turn the piece around,

you discover a little pocket with a folded booklet tuck in.

Here is the back view of the Piece.

I just love getting to create, it frees my soul and allows me to get to work with some of the pieces that I design for the shops!! I hope you enjoy working with the pieces that I create as well!! I love getting to see how different artist use my products in so many different way!! It is a feeling like no other to know that others enjoy what comes from my heart and soul. Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you get to create something "Beautiful With An Edge" for yourself!! Hugs ~Renea
