Is it Spring yet? The calendar says yes but in my part of continent, I'm not quite sure where it is! I'm seriously hoping it's on its way!
To ease my craving for Spring, I decided to create some fun projects using my favorite bright colors from the new Picket Fence line by Lily Bee. I'm so excited to have had the opportunity to design this line and I hope you enjoy creating with it!
My first project is a card design with lots of prints and textures.
I started off by die cutting this sweet bird with the Sizzix die. I always think of birds and spring together. How about you? I've covered some Craft-a-Board with the Fresh Air patterned paper and then die cut both at the same time. When I designed this paper, I wanted it to be super flexible. You can use it just like cardstock and ink it up. The text will show through very subtlely.
One of the many new and exciting products in Ellen's store over the past few weeks is the pure wool felt. It's thick, gorgeous and has a beautiful texture. It's easy to stitch and die cut and here I've die cut it with the Tattered Florals die.

When I get started creating, I always hate to stop. A great way to put away scraps is to use them up instead for quick little projects.
This darling Keep Calm Maya Road stamp set arrived just as I was cleaning up and I just had to use it right away. My problem was that I love ALL the little possible sentiments on it. Which would I choose?
A light bulb went on! Love it when that happens! Why not use them all?
Essentials by Ellen Magnetic Masking Material sheets to the rescue.
I covered the sheets with patterned paper and stamped away. Now I can keep this fun little magnet on my scraproom magnetic board and change it up at will.
Here I've changed it to Keep Calm and Carry On. I guess that's just what I'll have to do until Spring arrives.
Thanks for stopping by the CLASSroom! Happy creating!
