Garden of Weedin'

Here are the projects I did for Hallmark.  Now that my week is over, I wanted to post them to My Craft Spot.  Thanks again for all of your sweet comments!

I had so much fun making these "Garden of Weedin'" scrapbook pages!  There were so many details that I thought it would work best to just show you on a video how to make all of the fun embellishments on these pages. It turned into a 3 part series!!  :-)

Garden of Weedin' 12 x 12 Scrapbook Pages :

These are the cartridges that I used. I cut all of these using my Gypsy so I am listing the width and height measurements instead of dial size (inches).
