Spring Blog Hop

Please note: Blog Candy Contest is now closed

Hello and welcome to the Spring Blog Hop hosted by Jen at Jen's Craft Corner!! You should have arrived here from Amber's Blog.  If you are just happening upon this post randomly you can head over to Jen's Blog to start at the beginning.  Jen has some blog candy available too, so definitely check it out!!  The theme of this hop is anything SPRING which I love because it is one of my favourite times of the year!  Everything is fresh and new, and summer is just around the corner!

We each created a Spring themed project.  I created a scrapbook layout which will be included in a baby book I am making for a friend.  I used my Cricut Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, and Papertrey Ink Fresh Alphabet stamp set.




I then used the same goodies to make a similarly themed card to show how quick and easy it is to use up your scraps, stick with a theme, AND switch between scrapping and card making...something I used to think was IMPOSSIBLE!!!




Be sure to leave a comment to be entered for a chance to win some blog candy!!  I have a super cute floral stamp set from Sassafras called 'sketched'.  SO cute.


Leave your comment below for a chance to win.  The contest is open until Monday March 28th at 12:00 pm (lunch time!).  I will post the winners Monday afternoon.  Good luck!  Your next stop on the hop is Beach Creations!

Hi, Lisa! Your layout is really cute and I love that you made the matching card. That's a brilliant idea! I should start doing that to use up my scraps while building up my card stash. I do save even small scraps and I use them all the time but I never seem to be able to use them all up and my scrap boxes get fuller all the time. Thanks for sharing and for offering a chance to win some cool blog candy!
