Spring Flowers & The Sound of Spring

Another great week designing for The Memory Nest! This week myself and the other members of the Design Team were working with Simply Spring by We R Memory Keepers. What a lovely line of paper, perfect for Spring and Easter layouts.

This time around I was able to complete two layouts. The first is called Spring Flowers:
I used the perfectly coordinated cardstock (also by We R Memory Keepers) and the yellow and green patterned papers as the base for my page and then layered my pictures on top.

I cut my title out using my trusty Silhouette (font: Segoe Print). The butterfly and the branch are from the coordinating sticker sheet.
The second layout I did is called The Sound of Spring:
This series of pictures was taken when we went to visit some family at their farm about an hour and a half away from home. The weather was so completely different there - warm and sunny compared to raining and cold at home. The girls were thrilled to run around in the sunshine, shouting and laughing. It was a fun day.

I used quite a few of the patterned papers on this layout, in small pieces to keep the focus on my pictures.

In the top corner I made a little embellishment by layering patterned papers, a sticker, and a tag from the coordinating tag sheet.
My title is a mix of Thickers (by American Crafts) and letters cut with my Silhouette (font: Kristin ITC). The small dots that are scattered across this page are from the coordinating sticker sheet.
This is a lovely line of paper - so many possibilities for layouts and even cards. Yes, I can see a few cards in my future using this paper.

Please go and visit The Memory Nest to see what the other talented ladies of the Design Team have created.
