Today we are featuring the Flourishes and Frame stamp set:
For my card, I used the flourish frame and one of the sentiments from the "Flourishes and Frame" set.  I embossed the flourish frame then cut it out with a circle die.  I cut the brown frame with a Nestabilites die then embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  On the green layer, I used Martha Stewart border and corner punches.  I completed the card by adding a double bow and a small flower spring.  The papers, Nestabilities dies, ribbon, and stamp set are available at Mark's Finest Papers.

Here I made a small gratitude journal by using the "Flourishes and Frame" stamp set and the Bind It All binding machine.  Mark's Finest Papers now sells the Bind It All machine and accessories.  For my book, I covered two coasters with patterned papers from Bo Bunny.  I stamped the pocketwatch from MFP's "Take the Time/Father's Day" set inside of the flourish frame.  It's amazing how perfectly the clock fits inside this frame.  I used one of the flourish stamps to stamp on the patterned paper for a subtle look.  The sentiment is also from this same stamp set.  Finally, I added blank pages and put the book together with a 5/8 inch Bind It All coil.
