Welcome Spring is a happy new line of papers and embellishments from Imaginisce/American Crafts. I've created some cards, layouts and a mini-album using this joyous new line filled with springy colors.Imaginisce die-cut cardstock shapes, and Pebbles printed bags helped get my imagination going. Inspiration on how to create the unique folds of a few of the cards came from Card Maker magazine.
Here are a few layouts with Bo-Bunny Cardstock and Welcome Spring patterned papers:
WeRMemory Keepers has Chevron shaped tape-I used STONE on my layout below:
We R Memory Keepers punch 6 inch Trellis Mini-8-Punch for the white background paper. I cut the 12x12 white printed paper down to 10x10 and then used the punch on the corners, turned the paper "on point" or in a diamond shape and adhered it to the pink cardstock. I then placed photos over the parts of the white punched paper that were straight to make the white printed paper look like I had cut the entire 10x10 edge background piece all the way around the edges (but I really didn't).
Pebbles printed bags are the perfect mini-album backdrop for the Welcome Spring papers from Imaginisce/American Crafts:
Zip Dry liquid adhesive on the front and back upper edge of the printed bags and in the inside gutter of the accordion folded papers to adhere the "pages" or pockets to the top binding. I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch through the binding and placed three hinged rings in the holes for added stability.
journaling cardstock paper from the Welcome spring line and die-cut cardstock shapes for embellishment throughout the book.
Distress Markers in chipped saphire, peacock feathers, evergreen bough on journaling pieces, and an American Crafts Slick Writer in Black on the printed bags.
