Happy spring, everyone! And happy April Fool’s Day! Another fabulous weekend is here and I hope you are enjoying warmer spring weather. I thank each and everyone of you for sharing part of your day with me. I have some wonderful inspirational projects to share from some very talented designers. I hope you take the time to enjoy and create some of the fun projects I have to share.
Favorite Gardener By Missy Whidden
When you scrapbook it is a great joy to feel the fulfillment that comes from the projects you have created. As scrapbookers, we know it is all about preserving and sharing memories for your family, friends, and future generations. This masterpiece layout definitely showcases just how to beautifully capture a very special moment.
With spring in the air; we soon will see many beautiful flowers, and Missy created her layout around a floral theme. This is such a great way to break out those treasured scraps you have been hanging onto, and transform them into your beautiful layout. Missy fussy cut flowers out of bright fun colors, and to contrast those colors she added some blue acrylic paint to white cardstock for the background. For a full tutorial on how Missy created this adorable layout, click here and I will take you to her video. Be sure to visit Little Nugget Creations blog where you will see more of Missy’s outstanding projects. You will not want to miss out on any of her wonderful projects – it will be a real treat to follow her!
Happy Easter By Yana Smakula
Easter is not too far away so now is a good time to start making your Easter cards, from cute and cuddly to inspirational and elegant. I love Easter and this time of the year. When I came upon this adorable card created by Yana Smakula, I knew I just had to share it with you. Pull out your favorite markers and Easter images and have some fun coloring and bringing that spring feeling into the air!
I just love how creative you can get using kraft paper. Today I want to share some step-by-step instructions given by Yana Smakula just by clicking here. You will be able to make two of her spring cards as well as the Easter card, using the Spring Seeds stamp by Simon Says. These are not only fun to create, but they are absolutely adorable. Can you just imagine the look on the faces of the ones who will receive these darling cards? Nothing is more priceless then receiving a handmade card that is delivered by mail from someone so special!
Office Memo Board By Ashely Broviak
This Wood Chicken Wire Memo Board is perfect for your office or any other room. This fabulous memo board will be an eye-catching decor piece for your home. Personalize it by adding photos, reminders, calendars, recipes, notes, some embellishments, or just some odds and ends for your entry display! This is much more attractive than the good old cork board. This would make such a great gift!
I just love the use of the clothespins to hang up wedding invitations and cards so they can be displayed and not just end up in a pile somewhere. Click here and I would love to escort you over to the Little Glass Jar where you will find how to make one of your own. A big thank you goes out to Ashely Broviak for sharing this outstanding project. What a fun home decor item, along with some great organization!
Malted Coconut Cake By Country Living
This is an Easter dessert that is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth! This beautiful cake will be the hit of your Easter dinner, not to mention how impressive it will look! This cake is almost too pretty to eat (but also too delicious not to). If you love coconut this is the cake for you! This towering creation is loaded with coconut flavor.
You can certainly put a spin on it for other spring occasions such as a Mother’s Day luncheon or even a fun baby shower. Whatever the occasion is, this outstanding cake will become one of your favorite cake recipes. I know you are dying to get this recipe, so let me take you over to Country Living where you will find the ingredients and recipe to this fabulous cake. Enjoy baking, everyone!
