Hello and welcome to the Spring Project Parade!
Rain showers, brightly colored flowers, new green buds sprouting on bare tree branches. These are the things we think of when we here the word Spring. This month we are thinking of all those things and how we can recreate the beauty of Spring with our projects. The Polly’s have been hard a work creating inspiring Spring projects to share with you. You can join the fun and recreate your own projects like those seen in the parade by visiting the March Project Parade category. Shop for these products at a 20% discount!
Lets get this parade started! The parade begins with Miss Millie mini-kit by Lynn Grieveson.
Using Miss Millie Sarah created a beautiful gift box for her daughter. She explains, “My daughter’s birthday is the first day of spring so I thought it would be fun to make a gift box from the Miss Millie kit and Boxed in Vol. 5 by WendyBird Designs. To make the ribbon flower on top I used the two bows from the Miss Millie kit. I copied and resized them so that I had three copies of each bow in three different sizes. I print and cut them on my Silhouette and then shaped them by hand giving my ribbon petals a bit of dimension. Next I stacked them by size, alternating by color with glue dots and adhered my ribbon flower to the box lid. This box is the perfect size for a piece of jewelry or other small present.
Next on the parade route is Cleaning Bug | Elements by Pink Reptile Designs.
Courtney whipped up a handy cleaning list for her planner. She tells us this, “I created a cleaning list for my planner in PSE14. I then print and cut by hand. I laminated it for durability and so I can use a dry erase marker on it.”
The parade continues with Spring Day by Kristin Aagard.
Jewelle created this beautiful card. She relates the tip, “Adding a few simple touches to your hybrid card can add a wow factor to them. Investing in just a few traditional scrapbooking supplies does the trick to obtain this wow factor. For my card, I printed each layer of cardstock separately to add some texture when assembled. A bit of wink of stella on the hearts and glossy accents on the clouds add some much needed dimension. The bakers twine quite literally “tied” the whole card together.”
Farrah created a statement piece for her mantel. She tells us, “I redesigned my mantle for spring using Life is Beautiful Kit by Amber LaBau. I printed the word art on an 8×10 piece of cardstock. Then I printed the balloon on another piece of card stock, cut it out and attached it to the 8×10 base with a foam sticker so it sticks out a little bit.”
Our last goodie on today’s parade is Sprinkles V.21 by Valorie Wibbens.
Ellen wowed us with this layout about Spring flowers. The use of two clusters in opposing corners add movement to her layout. Also by scattering the elements within those clusters she has added a nice amount of texture to her layout.
Thank you for following along with the parade. Stay tuned next week for the rest of the parade!
