here's an easy way to grow your own journal garden! first, grab all of your favorite paper punches (you can also cut shapes by hand)......
and some of your favorite papers.
punch out a circle, and stamp or write a word in the center.
(i distressed the edges of my circles with a stamp pad)
use adhesive to attach some "petals" to the back of your word circle
(i used a tape runner, but glue will work too).....
then add some fun little doodles and a paper stem, and you've got a flower!
add some more flowers to the mix (you can never have too many of these little cuties!), attach them to a colorful journal background.....
and you've got yourself a happy little inspiration garden!!
have fun, valentine sweeties!
