   I used the phase 'Live Life in Full Bloom' from the element stickers for my title. 

Hello Spring....

A few strip of patterned paper was used to create flower stems for the Prima metal flowers. I also added some hand stitch X's to each of the stems and really love how this turn out.    

A few of the word stickers as well as the cute bird sitting on the branch was added to the bottom left hand corner of the page. 

 Welcome Spring...

I used a heart die cut to back the butterfly cut file to create a grid design.

Add some zigzag machine stitching down the middle of the butterflies.

I created two small embellishment clusters, one on the bottom right hand corner of the photo and the other on the upper left corner using stickers, a few die cut cardstock pieces and a couple of Prima brads.

I finished the layout off  by adding some of ribbon (from this months kit) across the bottom of the layout, and added a few more stickers as well as another Prima brad.

Bee Happy | My Creative Scrapbook-April Tutorial

Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Today I am sharing a quick and easy step-by-step tutorial using this months beautiful Creative Kit, with the April sketch as my inspiration. Sketches are such a wonderful way to get your creative mind started, which can help you to complete your layout in no time.

I started by die cutting the hearts border (Hearts & Butterflies Borders) from some white Neenah cardstock.  

I decided to flip the sketch horizontally and place the die cut down the center of my page.  

Behind my photo I added some layers using color cardstock and some of the beautiful patterned papers from the 'Spring Fling' collection. I fold the paper in the left corner onto the photo and added a staple to hold it in place.      

I also added a doily from my stash to the back of my photo before I glued it onto my background.     

I fussy cut one of the beautiful butterfly from the Fluffy Bunny patterned paper to embellish the Bee Happy tag, which was also used, as a title for my page.   

A few drops of white paint was then added to the layout. Once the paint was dry, I combined a few die-cut flowers (Stitched Flowers) with a couple of 'Spring Fling' stickers to create a cluster on the right hand side of my photo.      

I finished the layout off by tucking some tangled black thread underneath the photo and some stitching around the border of my layout.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Bloom Where You Are Planted | My Creative Scrapbook

Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing one of my layout using the beautiful April main kit from My Creative Scrapbook

This kit is full of the Carta Bella Flower Market collection, I couldn't get enough of the beautiful florals in this collection, so I decided to fussy cut some of the floral cluster out of the gorgeous Flower Market Floral and the Garden Floral patterned papers! 

I also used the April Take Heart cut file and back it with the Crate Paper Flea Market-Heirloom patterned paper and added some stitching around the perimeter.  The Maggie Holmes-Flutter patterned paper was used as my background and I adhered the cut file to the page using some foam tape for added dimension.

Here's the April-Take Heart cut file....

I used the chipboard phase from Creative Embellishments for my title and added the floral clusters, one in the upper left corner and the other to the bottom right corner of the title. 


I finished the layout off by added a couple more sticker and some black ink splatters!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!
