Hello! Tegan here today with a spring themed layout made with the fresh and fun Spring Collection. I love the colorful palette of this darling collection. It is just perfect for any spring project, card, or layout. I am in love with hand stitching these days, so I embellished my favorite stickers (the banner and sun) with embroidery floss to make them stand out.
I first stitched each of the ‘spring’ banner pieces with coordinating colors of embroidery floss. I then adhered the banner in place with foam adhesive. I adhered a couple pastel pink mini buttons to the flower sticker with Glossy Accents and tucked it under the banner’s end.
I then hand stitched the rays of sunshine on the background paper and adhered the sun sticker using foam adhesive. I ran the bicycle ephemera piece through my computer printer to make it my journaling card. A sweet little yellow bow finishes off the layout.
Our Spring Collection is the perfect thing for chasing away the winter blues. I can’t wait to use this cheerful collection to document all of my spring activities!

Hello, everyone; Shellye here with you today. According to Punxsutawney Phil, Spring will arrive early this year…yay! I have a cute flower shaped mini album to share using the new “Spring Collection”.
I started with a four page, flower shaped chipboard album that I picked up from Michael’s for a couple of dollars. It measures approximately 6.5” in diameter. I traced the shape onto various 12X12 patterned papers from the collection, trimmed out and attached with adhesive using the Xyron Creative Station. The edges were sanded lightly to give a clean, finished look.
I die-cut a large label shape for the front of the album using the Designer Labels Die-Set #5 . It was layered with one of the Ephemera sentiments, die-cut flowers and sticker shapes.
Pages 2 and 3: on all of the pages I used the largest scallop circle to die-cut mats for the pages. As you can see, I added lines for journaling on the one page…just make sure to choose a fairly neutral background paper for journaling!
Pages 4 and 5: In keeping with the circular shape of the album and mats, I die-cut the photos with a circle die as much as possible. Use all different sizes of circles to create a collage of pictures for each page.
Pages 6 and 7: I added the photos after placing all of the embellishments, but I love the off-center placement of the photo on the last page! And don’t forget to add enamel dots and brads to dress up those cute stickers and make them extra fun!
