Is everyone ready for spring? I love this beautiful time a year, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and the butterflies are visiting my garden. I love to create pretty little pockets of tags to give away to my sweet friends. It is also fun to tuck in little packets of seeds, for them to plant in their garden. A little gift card to Starbucks tucked in is always a big hit too.
I fussy cut these beautiful flowers from Anna Griffin paper and stamped the rest of these images.

I love all of the inspirational She*Art that is becoming so popular. It's so wonderful to see people expressing their creativity, and really letting their imaginations run wild, with some positive words to go along with it. I decided to try my hand at this trend using one of my favorite paper companies, Graphic 45, and true to their wonderful vintage style my little lady is sporting her very own flapper dress. This was really fun to create, I started out basic, but I can't wait to make a few more pieces and get more elaborate as I go along!

I couldn't resist making a fun little banner to accent the title.
I cut some eggs out of various pattern paper and placed them in the grass I also cut. I put pop dots on the flower border and embellished them with liquid pearls. Then I added the cute little bunny and the birdie to go along with the springtime fun.

Mini albums are incredibly popular, so leave it to Graphic 45 to come up with this completely adorable Metal Film Canister with an accordian album inside.
I love how this album stretches out. I decided to use the gorgeous Tropical Travelogue papers and just 4 pieces of the album to stretch across the mantle of my fireplace. It's like a mini vacation every time I see it!
I love the beautiful palm leaves, they are so real looking, like actually being in a beautiful, lush tropical garden. I added a few Petaloo velvet hydrangeas. Graphic 45 and Petaloo have been teaming up a lot lately and the two together coordinate perfectly.

I made this creativity journal to write down all my crafty ideas and to sketch project inspirations for 2012! I love the new Tropical Travelogue collection from Graphic 45, it is full of the most beautiful shades of turqouise and corals and lush greens! Happy crafting to you all in this New Year! I hope you are filled with inspiration all around and find lots of joy in your crafting adventures!
