Spring is coming...Anna Griffin style

 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.

She*Art Graphic 45 style

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!

Spring mini album

Spring is here!! I think everyone loves when springtime finally arrives. All the gorgeous flowers start blooming, the birds are singing and the wonder of nature fills the air. I created this mini album for all the wonderful photos I am so looking forward to taking this season. I used DCWV "Nana's Nursery" baby girl stack. The lovely pastel pinks and greens are perfect to bring in this special time of year!

Happy Easter! Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime

I love the Once Upon a Springtime collection for Easter and all kinds of spring celebrations! The beautiful pastel pinks, blues and greens fit perfectly with these Easter photos of my two precious nieces.

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.

Tropical Travelogue mini album

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 hope you are filled with inspiration all around and find lots of joy in your crafting adventures!

Echo Park Holly Jolly mini-album

The holiday season is upon us once again! I love crafting for Christmas in non-traditional colors. Red and green are fun yes, but if I see something for the holidays in pastel shades: lavender, aquas, and especially pink, I am definitely sold. The Holly Jolly collection from Echo Park quickly caught my eye. As soon as I saw the soft pink in the line, I knew that would be the focal point for this mini. I decided to make a fun christmas stocking shape to fill with all of the wonderful memories that will be created in the coming weeks. Enjoy...
