Aquamarine – Week 3 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Finding style with October Afternoon’s Holiday Style collection was super easy. The nostalgic look and tons of embellishments made creating this project fun for me. I couldn’t choose between all of the bits and pieces, I just had to use them all! Don’t be alarmed that there are no photos on this layout. I may just be hanging this in a frame on my wall this holiday season.

Here’s what I came up with:

I started with a base of the journaling cards and laid them out on my background paper. Then I went to work embellishing the cards.

I love the included tin pins, they remind me of using my old button maker.

The flower sack includes so many die-cut pieces, you can layer for days and days.
