paper bag album, whimsy jar, trims, ephemera, flowers...

This is the package I put together for Cerri (I mentioned our swap the other day).

Cerri and I agreed that we would include some art supplies and some handmade things for each other.
Some of the art supplies I included for her were these ribbons, trims, buttons, embellishments, and flowers:
I also included some ephemera in a handmade pouch with ruffled ribbon and that image of the little girl in her pink dress petting her puppy. The ephemera fit with our very specific theme "playful/whimsical/girlie..." I shared a few pictures the other day of some of the ephemera I included for Cerri.
These are a few more of the pieces I included for her:I also included some handmade things like this paper bag album:
I plan on showing more details of the paper bag album another day.

(See more of my paper bag albums here. If you're interested in making your own paper bag album, I have tutorials here and here).
The third whimsy jar I mentioned that I made was for Cerri. When I first introduced the Whimsy Jar Swap, all of the items inside of that sample jar were for her. The pics are here.Our "whimsical/playful/pinks&yellows/sweet/girlie..." theme is my new favorite.See more artistic kits here.
