Okay, so technically, it's not feeling very spring-like outside today. Kind of gray and dreary and cold. But we had a long string of 80+ degree days before this cold front rolled in, so I'm going to consider it Spring! (Fortunately, the calendar agrees with me.)
In honor of the arrival of my favorite season, I'm sharing some spring projects I've created over the past few weeks. First up is a layout I created with the March Sweet and Sassy kit from Coordinates Collections. The kit is now sold out (sorry!), but the papers are from the Echo Park Little Girl collection, with some American Crafts Dear Lizzy mixed in.
These photos had such nice sunlight in them that I decided to tie it into the layout in a very literal (a.k.a. huge sunshine title block!) way. I did my journaling in a half-circle on the bottom of the layout to balance it.
Next up is a layout using my favorite Upsy Daisy papers -- the Vogue collection. I can't seem to get enough of the green/navy/white color combo. So fun!
I really liked the diamond print in the patterned paper so I did a crazy thing and cut it out. They were straight cuts (up and down, and up and down), but they still took me a while. I do love the way it turned out though. Note to self: use more diamonds!
And finally, here's a card I made using the same Upsy Daisy papers to create a rolled window effect. It's an easy technique, and I posted a full tutorial on the Upsy Daisy blog, in case you're interested.
Thanks for stopping by!
