Saturdays With LeAnn

Sending Hugs


Welcome back on this beautiful Saturday! Do you need some inspiration to get your crafty mind going? I have some beautiful spring projects in store for you today. I hope you will enjoy these unique ideas and be filled with inspiration.

Spring created by Lisa Nazario-Gregory

Spring is such a beautiful time of the year. We are thoroughly enjoying the springtime weather that is finally here in Utah. This adorable layout brings that beautiful feeling of spring to us. I just love the colors and beauty of this fabulous layout.


Lisa created this by starting out using corrugated cardboard and Mod Podge. This gave her a great base to build on. You could also use a canvas, which would work just as well. Lisa’s fun flowers were made using the Sizzix Susan’s Garden Dogwood dieCLICK HERE and we will go on over to Lisa’s blog where you can find her instructions and supplies to create this beautiful layout.

Happiness created by Pam Sparks

This is one of those WOW “I have to make it” cards. This card has a great sentiment and such beautiful layers. Stamps can be so inspiring when creating a card. Dies are also great to work with and they have so many possibilities. Just think of all the occasions this card could be used for just by changing out the sentiment.


Pam truly has a talent with her card making. Take some time and visit her blog Outside The Box  to see more of her outstanding projects. You will be so happy you did!

Sending Hugs created by Maya Isaksson

This card is simply gorgeous! I love, love, love, the airbrushed background on this card, don’t you? It is fun to work with large script for a change. Using the pearlescent embossing powder really pops the lettering!

Maya fussy cut a fun flower out of patterned paper. She added a circle of vellum behind it, and decorated with gold thread and gemstones. The colors and design are so stunning. I recommend you stop by Maya’s blog “Little Outbursts of Creativity” for a visit whenever you need a burst of inspiration.
