Have you used the Botanical Tea collection yet? It has so much gorgeous imagery, floral patterns, butterflies, and more!


Keri made the most gorgeous piece of altered art using Botanical Tea. It is so beautifully layered and her fussy cutting is masterful. What a stunning creation!

"When I was creating this project, I kept thinking about all the weddings and wedding showers that happen in the beautiful months of June and July. The idea of having a wedding “tea party” shower just sounds like it would be amazingly perfect, doesn’t it? I wanted this piece to be the center point of the decor for such a party, maybe used on the entrance table to welcome everyone and get them in the tea-drinking, garden-sitting kind of mood."~Keri

"June is a perfect month for wedding ideas, then I used Botanical Tea to make some wedding favors. I love this collection with birds, butterflies and flowers. This cake serves as embellishment and after the party  the guests can take home these favors with a piece of cake or sweets. I used some mediums to get more texture on this project and prepared a tutorial to you." ~Solange

The plaque and that wonderful wedding cake favor holder, wow more than fantastic. I couldn't stand to let the little individual boxes be taken, but what fun to see people's reaction. Lot's of fun in this week's prize package as well. Good luck fellow blog fans.

Beautiful Botanical Tea projects today! I love this paper, but haven't made anything out of it yet; I've been waiting for the perfect project to come along. I think the plaque idea might be it!
