Spring Garden BFF Scrapbook Layout

Hey everyone! I'm back on the Doodlebug Blog today, sharing my 12x12 Spring Garden BFF layout. I just love the patterns and colors in this collection. The plaids, dots, flowers and chevrons are all so cute!



I used pictures of my sweet nieces and cute papers from the Doodlebug Spring Garden Collection. For the base, I started with the 12x12 blue and green polka dot called Kiwi Dot and added white cardstock on top of that. Then layered the blue Sweet Talk, Fruit Stripe and Garden Plaid on top.


The "smile" and larger flower die cuts are from the Spring Garden Icon Stickers and the "together" tab and "good times" banner are from the This and That. Sprinkles are, by far my favorite scrapbooking embellishments. I added a bunch of tiny flower shapes and enamel dot sprinkles to this page ... so CUTE!!
 

Aren't those little polaroid frames adorable? This collection has an entire page of them and it's called Berry Blossoms.

Doodlebug's Fairy Garden Collection would be a really pretty substitute for these products. I've added some links below in case you want to take a look. Happy crafting everyone!

I love the bright cheerful colors, the sun with the pink cheeks and lil bunny with the bow! I mean ... Easter and springtime always have the happiest collections! Am I right?! I hope you have as much fun making this as I did!
 
Update: Other than the icon stickers linked below, the Bunnyville Collection is difficult to find now-a-days. So, I've added links for two great substitutes - Doodlebug's Hippity Hoppity and Fairy Garden Collections. A small wooden photo crate can be purchased at most craft stores.

Easter & St Patrick's Day Magnets - Lori Whitlock March Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today I'm hopping along with Lori Whitlock's Creative Team for our March blog hop! If you are starting here, be sure to head back over to Lori's Blog to start from the beginning. We have lots of creative ideas to share with you!

For my project I created magnets for my refrigerator using 2 of Lori's cutting files called, 9 Easter Eggs and St Patrick's Day Icons (links below). But ... you can use any of her files to make magnets that are perfect for other holidays too. I decided on St. Patrick's Day and Easter since it's that time of year. 🐰🍀


I used self-adhesive magnet material by Silhouette (link below).  It cuts easily and is really fun to use.

 

After cutting your shape from card stock or pattern paper, cut the same background shape from the magnet material.  Peel off the magnet backing and adhere the 
material to your shape. So easy!

Aren't these cute? Perfect for displaying photos, notes, or your child's artwork!


Just imagine how many fun magnets you could create with Lori's files. The possibilities are endless! I've added the cut file & magnet paper links below. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!
