Welcome Spring with Imaginisce

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. 
 Martha Stewart butterfly punches, 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:
 A grouping including Maya Road bingo marker and acetate tickets, wooden and chipboard buttons add masculinity to the layout:

 I love WASHI tape and WeRMemory Keepers has Chevron shaped tape-I used STONE on my layout below:
 To adorn my the layout I created for my daughter, I used some fussy cut butterflies from the Hello Spring line and a 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:
 I cut a piece of printed paper to the same length as the printed bag, accordion folded it, then scallop punched the front edge only.
 I used 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.
 I used the journaling cardstock paper from the Welcome spring line and die-cut cardstock shapes for embellishment throughout the book.

 We R Memory Keepers Chevron Washi tape (stone) was used as a border:
 EK Success 2.25" circle punched was used for pictures on some pages and 2.5" circle punch was used to create a background circle for the 2.25" punched pictures. I used Distress Markers in chipped saphire, peacock feathers, evergreen bough on journaling pieces, and an American Crafts Slick Writer in Black on the printed bags.
Thanks for checking out this month's projects! Remember, you can pick up all of these goodies at The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL online or at their store.
