Today I have an August Design Team project for Ephemera's Vintage Garden! I am using the new digital kit called Tea and Tweets, and let me tell you how colorful and wonderful this kit is!! It's amazing!! I let the paper do all the work for me in this project. I printed the kit at Staples on matte photo paper, card stock thickness. I used the ENTIRE kit; all the pages, all the ephemera, every last bit! You get a lot in this kit to work with, so if you haven't checked it out, run over and take a peek at it. You won't be disappointed!
I made an envelope journal and bound it with my Cinch. The covers are 8 3/8" x 6 5/8". I didn't add any embellishments to the front cover, leaving the paper to speak for itself. I used a red coil in the binding because it matched beautifully with the papers. I also tied several pieces of hand-dyed muslin onto the coil.
In the photo above, you see the cardstock pulled out from the envelope pocket and you can see more torn cardstock with an ephemera piece from the kit attached to it. This piece is then attached to the larger piece of cardstock just along the bottom and right sides to form a pocket on the page.
In the photo below, I show what I added to the back of this cardstock pull out; another envelope from the kit, a little file folder piece inside the envelope, and they are both tucked into a pocket. The piece you see on the pocket is from a free printout called Spring Tea.
Tea and Tweets kit. The exact colors will differ from printer to printer, and paper to paper, so it may look different to you here than on Debbie's site.

Isn't this a sweet little girl with her dog? You could attached letters in the pennants to make a title for this page as well.
kit! You don't have to do anything on these pages, except to add your photos!
On the last page, you see I added this cute file foler that comes in the kit. I glued it shut so it forms a top loading pocket on the page. I then added a circle ephemera piece to the center.
I LOVED this kit!! I can't tell you enough how gorgeous these papers are! I hope that you go check out Ephemera's Vintage Garden and look at this Journal Kit along with all the other amazing digital designs she offers! Thank you so much for visiting me today and I hope you have a wonderful day, wherever you may be!!
