spring fling: minialbum ‘i love spring’

spring fling: minialbum 'i love spring' cover by momentstolivefor
Spring is here and I had the urge to create something beautiful to honor spring time. Because I love my Summer love minialbum, I tried to craft something alike for spring. And this is the pretty result, naturally in light and bright spring colors and with lots of washi tape:

spring fling: minialbum 'i love spring' overview by momentstolivefor
I thought about things, I’m happy to see or experience in spring. Little details like spotting the first snowdrop or the first ladybug of the year. It was more than inspirational to go through my photo collection and search for spring photos. Although the raindrops and snow crystals are monochrome pictures, they bring out the statement pretty good – that changing weather from snow to rain means, that spring is back, don’t you think? What do you love most about spring?

For the minialbum cover I used simple cardboard and covered it with washi tape. The pages are grey and white papers, which measure 10 cm x 10 cm. The stamps are from Elise Blaha-Cripe and Evalicious.

spring fling: spring garlands

These light garlands are so pretty and instantly give you a feeling of spring. The round circles and flowers in different spring-like colors like light green, light blue, white, light yellow and pink are gorgeous and the use of paper with text gives it a little extra, don’t you think?

But what would be spring without some butterflies. Even though here are papers with darker colors used, the garlands has a light effect, because the space between them is bigger. Very cute idea.

Another cute idea is this pom pom garland in this springy colors. If you are interessted in creating one, here you can find a good tutorial for making pom poms on the blog of Anna likes by Anna.

If you can’t decide what shape to use for your garland – circle, flower, butterfly – why don’t use them all in one. But to make the garland not too messy, you could choose only two or three kinds of paper. That way the shapes are more in focus.

Beautiful for Mother’s Day is the last garland. Only made with rose blossoms. Wouldn’t that make a lovely gift? And if you do it with dried flowers, it will last a long time.
