Happy Spring, everyone! Another fabulous weekend is here and I wish you a very happy Easter weekend. I thank you for sharing part of it with me. Today you are sure to be inspired by some wonderful and talented designers. I hope you will take the time to enjoy and create some of the fabulous projects I have to share with you.
With the winter season behind us and summer on its way, I thought you might enjoy a nice summer-inspired project. I fell in love with the beautiful blue colors, along with the gel paste and the new Under the Sea Stickable stencil by Bo Bunny. This layout is perfect for those summer photos that are waiting for you to showcase them on a lovely layout.
I love the way that Denise added some drops of acrylic onto her page, then sprayed water onto the drops so the paint spreads out and seeps into the paper. This gives such a beautiful look to her background. Mixed media is really fun and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Most important is to play and have fun with it! Click here to see Denise’s full step-by-step tutorial on how she created this fabulous layout. It is time to break out some of those treasures you might have of beach and travel, and begin to have fun creating your own beautiful masterpiece!
I really enjoy working with die cuts. They make my projects work up quickly and also give some dimension to them, not to mention how beautiful they always turn out! This darling card was created with several die cuts and an embossing folder.
Leslie Miller created this fabulous card. She completed it by stamping the adorable birds, coloring them with Prismacolor pencils, and shading with soft chalks. She colored her birdhouses and flowers with Copic markers. Be sure to pop on over to Running With Scissors to get all the supplies you will need to create this fun card.
When I see butterflies I always get so excited knowing that summer is just around the corner. Today I want to share this darling card made by Amy Sheffer. Don’t you just love the soft chevron background and how it complements the beautiful butterfly? This outstanding card could be used for many different occasions.
Amy heat embossed in white, then sponged some yellow, green, and turquoise inks. She used a fun chevron stencil for her background. Come with me over to Pickled Paper Designs where you will find so many more wonderful projects created by Amy. You will be so inspired by this talented lady!
I am so ready to add some spring to my home, how about you? Now is the time of year when I like to change out some of my winter home décor and add in some bright, spring colors. This fun ampersand décor piece can really add some fun color and charm to your home. Place it on the table, fire place mantel, or even hang it on your wall. The rolled flowers will be so fun to create and bring in some springtime freshness to your home.
Gina used a die cut machine to create her rolled flowers out of various patterned papers. Come with me over to Gina Lideros Design to see how she puts her ampersand home décor piece together. I can only imagine how your mind is spinning of all the fun spring flowers you can create with that stash of papers in your craft room! You will be so surprised how quickly this fun home décor item comes together. Have fun creating! 🙂
What could taste better than cranberries, marshmallow, and chocolate? Putting these three ingredients together creates a very delicious cookie. You can even learn today how to make your own marshmallow.
