Gold Greenroom in Review & New White Birch

I wanted to share some thoughts and spreads with you since I finished my gold Greenroom notebook last weekend. ❤

Pressing Flowers with a Microfleur

This is just a quick demonstration of an awesome gift I received this year: a microwaveable flower press! Yay! It’s so fast, and the color retention is amazing. Dried flowers are kind of expensive anyways, so now I can add them into all my letters without breaking the bank.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this with you: my first ever process video! ❤

The lovely lady who’ll be receiving this enjoys vintage, so I thought earthy tones mixed with some bright green shades would match the lilac and lay a great foundation for the vintage theme. Soon, I’ll be uploading a look into the finished letter–to which I’ll invariably make some minor alterations.
