Spring is in the Air

Don't you love Spring? It brings the promise of warmer weather, flowers, and a few months where our winter clothes can be put away and not thought about! This month, our hop theme is Spring is in the Air and we are bringing you layouts, cards and general paper crafts featuring Spring. 

If you arrived here from Kirsten's blog, you are on the right path, but if you get lost along the way, just head back to Michelle's blog where you will find the complete list of hoppers. As you hop through, please leave your comments as we love to hear what you think of our projects. If you see something you would like more information about, whether it is a particular product used or a technique, leave a comment and we will get back to you.

Now, here is my project. I already had about a dozen cards in my stash that have a spring feel to them so picked my favourites to use here. 

Easter on the first card was cut with the Artistry cartridge with Thistle cardstock. I reduced the distance between the letters in Design Space until they were overlapping. The front of the green Easter card was cut using the Artfully Sent cartridge. I LOVE that cartridge! It makes creating cards so easy! 

Don't you just love the new Close to my Heart Thin Cuts!? The flower on the cards above and below where cut using the Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts and my Cuttlebug, and then stamped with the matching stamp set. Love it!

Yes, it is contraband paper, but I didn't have any other that matched the PML card! Sorry...

Cardstock used: Thistle, Pixie, White Daisy
B & T used: Penelope, Kaleidoscope, contraband
Cricut cartridges: Artfully Sent, 
CTMH Thin Cuts: Springtime Wishes
Stamps: Springtime Wishes, Curlicue Alphabet
Inks: Pixie, Honey, Fern, Black
Other: 3D Foam Tape (Thin and Thick), Silver Glitter Trim, Pixie Thick Twine, clear sparkles, Enamel and Glitter Duos Purple Hearts

Thanks for hopping with us this month! Come and join us next month when we will be recognizing mom's! 

Since I am the last person in this hop, you can go to Michelle's blog to start all over or continue if you started in the middle of the hop. 

If you have seen anything here that you would like more information about, please leave a comment. I will get back to you as soon as I can!
