Happy weekend, everyone! I was in the mood to get scrappy today and decided I needed an updated Spring scrappy magnet page to spruce up my fridge, so here ya go!

I adore the huge variety of dies Ellen carries -- they make any kind of papercrafting project so easy and professional looking! Today I used a great sized (approximately 1/2") classic font die from Memory Box that worked well on my 6x6 sized page and are also a great size for creating your own sentiments for cards, Typewriter Lower Alphabet & Typewriter Number Set. I started my project with all these pretty coordinating patterned papers from My Mind's Eye Memorable 6x6 pad, from which my title and year were also die cut.
For small/thin/narrow die cuts like these, I like to use Zig's 2-Way Glue Squeeze & Roll pen to adhere them and EK Success' precision Tweezer Bees are wonderful to use when trying to get die cut placement just right! I adhered the year die cuts to My Favorite Things cute Say What? Die-namics speech bubble die.
The pretty flower was made with My Favorite Things, Winter Rose die and the wavy border is MFT's Jumbo Ric Rac cut in half. Have you noticed the sequin trend in papercrafting lately? Well, Ellen has you covered, with her own Essentials by Ellen line of sequins in just about any color you could need ... check them out here! I used the Cool White Sequins on my flower center (held in place with a Craft Glue Dot) and to dot the "i" in my "spring" title.
I adhered my page to Ellen's Craft-a-Board, backed it with Inchie Magnets and ta-da, I have a cute and unique big magnet for my fridge! I certainly Spring has come to your part of the country by now! ~ Sharon
