Hello friends. It is with sadness that I say that this is the last Alumni Blog Hop as Heartfelt Creations has decided to cancel any future hops. 

For this last one, I made an insert notebook for my Traveler's Notebook to start off 2023 organized!

For the background, I used the Floral Shoppe Paper Collection. I used a 3"x4" card, distressed the edges and mounted it on dark green cardstock, and added to the center of my notebook. I then stamped the hyacinth from the Fragrant Hyacinth Cling Stamp Set and die cut them using their corresponding dies. I inked them and ran them through the corresponding mold. For the greenery, I used the Floral Butterfly Accents Cling Stamp Set and it's matching die. I finished it off with stickles to make it stand out. I handwrote the word "Notes" on a strip of paper and arranged everything on the front of the notebook as shown.

Here's a close up of my embellies:
