A reminder of Spring...

by Carrie Walz | March 27, 2013

Hello to all you RRBF fans! I don't know what the weather is like by all of you, but the last time I checked it was supossed to be Spring here by me but I think Mother Nature was not given the memo. Here we are the last couple of days into March and it has been snowing, freezing rain and lots of wind here in Chicago. I myself really wish those beuatiful spring days would hurry up and get here. Besides taking pictures of my children, flowers are my next favorite photo subjects. Since I have so many beautiful flowers to photograph in my yard, I have a ton of photos in my library so since Spring wasn't coming to me I would do a layout to remind me of what will be coming if Mother Nature would just quit being so stubborn...

For this layout I used several different product lines, again showing how veritile the RRBF lines are. The background paper is from the  Bella! J'adore line. I used the 12x12 diecut from the Cook line. I didn't want to cover up the detail in the corner of my background paper so I cut out the outline with a craft knife so I could insert the corner of my diecut through allowing the beautiful detail to overlap. I also inked the edges of the diecut to make  it stand out against the background a little better. I used some more background paper from the J'adore line, some Bella! Bling and my favorite, Decoupage.



For this piece of Decoupage, I changed it up a bit and added more decoupage elements to it choosing to only  "uplift" one part of the design.

I fussy cut some random elements out of another piece of J'adore paper and added some bling around my photos to help highlight...
