One of my favorite things to do is to create my own designer series paper. Rooted in Nature has so many beautiful images. It makes that task super easy.

Starting things off, I chose a color palette. This one is Tranquil Tide, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron. All those yummy colors can be found in the Nature’s Poem DSP. Be sure to pick up a pack or two before it retires on June 3rd.

Rooted in Nature  You are Wonderful

There are lots of spectacular benefits to the Rooted in Nature bundle. First off, there are lots of images and a great mix of sentiments. The set can be used of all occasions. Then we have the dies. Oy my goodness, these are special. Not only do some of the images cut, but they emboss as well.  Did you see all the texture on those leaves?

I’ve even included a tip and trick using the Nature’s Twine. It’s a little thicker than our regular baker’s twine. That’s because it’s twisted multiple threads. So, I thought, if it’s twisted, I can untwist it. That’s how I achieved the threads under the large wood image.
