Saturdays With LeAnn

Easter Wishes


Hello, my crafty friends!  Thank you for spending a bit of your Saturday with me. My hope today is that you will jump into trying something new. Most important, have fun and enjoy your creative road. I hope you will enjoy the spring projects that I have to share with you today!

Dream By Maryana Volkova

Don’t you just love all of the layering and the mixed media background that Maryana has used to create this lovely layout?  What a great way to take a piece of white cardstock and turn it into a gorgeous page using the Blue Bay and the Ma Cherie collections by Kaisercraft.  Maryana really shows how the layering complements her photo. One thing to keep in mind is that a background should take a back seat to your photos. Allow your photos to be the focal point of your layouts.


Layering is such a great way of using up some of your scraps.  Layering will also give some dimension to your layout. I would like to say thank you to Maryana Volkova for sharing her beautiful design with us. I hope you have been inspired to do more layering while creating your layouts.

Happy Spring By Olga Direktorenko

Do you have spring fever?  Today’s fabulous card will capture that spring feeling you are looking for.  I just love to make cards! I enjoy the way they can be created very simply or taken up a notch with more details added.  The best part of creating cards is to share them with the special people in your life. Now is the time to share your spring creation, so push that cold, chilly day away by giving a card to your friends and family!

Happy Spring

Olga used vellum and white and ivory cardstock along with some inks to create this fabulous spring card. Click here for a terrific step-by-step video tutorial for this project.  Be sure to visit Building Your World for more wonderful inspiration from Olga Direktorenko.
