Scrapbook Heaven's "Spring in my Step" blog hop!!

Welcome to Scrapbook Heaven's "Spring in my Step" blog hop!! Thanks so much for joining us! We are excited to be hosting our First ever blog hop!



If you just happened by my blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Scrapbook Heaven and start the Hop. Our members have some wonderful inspiration to share with you . . . and also some prizes:-)



Our theme is "Spring into my Step" We'll be sharing a variety of Spring-y projects with you.



For this hop I made a little Mini Album. The background papers are from the Citrus Stack. Some of them are glittered and some of them are plain. I also used the DCVW mat stack for some of the accents.







I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the mat from DCVW, then sanded and lightly inked the mat. I glued the ribbon to the bottom of the page to make a ruffle the covered the edge with another piece of ribbon.I used the Argyle Cuttlebug folder to emboss the tag holder then wrapped a piece of jute around it and glued it down.



I have the frame up on pop up dots so that a picture can be slid behind the frame. The frame is cut from Accent Essentials.



I embossed with the snowflake Cuttlebug folder to give the mat some dimension. I used Design Studio to cut the fence and the flowers are from a small silk bouquet. The photo mat can slide out from behind the fence.


For the next two pages, I made little file folders that fit behind the "SPRING". I glued the piece of lace onto white card stock before I glued it down to the page. The chipboard letters are from a couple of different project, after gluing it to the paper, cutting out, then inked the edges in red.



I have a coupe of white silk flowers to the file folders.






I used Design Studio to make the scallop rectangle. I cut the tag out of DCVW mat stack, used and eyelet and strung a piece of Ric rack through it.



Here's the last page. I used a cut from Accent Essentials, inked the edges then glued some yellow silk flowers in the bottom left corner.


I'm also hosting a giveaway. I've put together a mini album kit with the papers I used here along with some ribbons, lace, silk flowers, buttons. There's enough for you to make your own mini album. Just leave me comment and I'll draw a winner on the 21st.
