Let's get this hop started!

I had quite a few of Christmas and winter projects lately, so I decided to kind of "water it down" with other projects. For the hop I have prepared a mini album with the "Zella Teal" paper from Prima and beautiful I AM Roses flowers in the matching color scheme. 

The album measures 4.5" X 6 1/4", the spine is 1 3/4". It has 6 pages inside, which are simply matted with the "Zella Teal" papers.

I've used the  IAR flowers on the cover of the album (the links will follow):

On the inside covers there are fabric pockets:

Besides the album, I've made a laminated traveler's notebook with the same paper and the whole set looks wonderful together:

For the Traveler's notebook I used a tutorial from YouTube (in case you were wondering). 
So... That's my portion of the inspiration for the Blog Hop, and here is the line up of other I Am Roses Design Team:
Alexandra Morein (You are here)
Roselany Caroline
Rosemary Bridges

Let's get this party started and enjoy the hop! Don't forget to comment!

"Fabrika Decoru" DT Application

Hello dear readers!

This will be a quick post with an application for the great "Fabrika Decoru" Design Team. I had been a member of the team and had to leave it because of the move to another country, but now I am back to crafting and would be happy to have a chance to return to "Fabrika Decoru" as well.

I love everything about paper and unusual constructions, I love to create cards and mini albums too. I adore the designs of the paper collection which "Fabrika Decoru" has to offer, and during the recent years  I have been watching how the brand grew, flourished and expanded, finally reaching the international stage which is absolutely amazing, I believe that it will only continue growing the same way and I am happy to assist in spreading the love to "Farika Decoru's" products among the fellow crafters and the readers of my blog.

Below you can find a few of my projects created with the "Fabrika Decoru's" products.

You can find me through the following Social Media channels (other than here on the blog):

I wish myself and all of the participants good luck!
