Heartfelt Wednesday

Hi! I feel the spring in the air. It’s still freezing cold, but the sun is up and the birds are singing so I’m happy about that right now. Easter is coming up and we are going to celebrate with family. I’ve done quite a few treat boxes which will be placed on everyone’s plates filled with some yumminess.

Since I want to enhance every tad bit of spring-y feeling I can find I’ve worked with beautiful pastels, starting with the soft colored gorgeous papers in the Vintage Floret Paper Collection. Then I used the many AMAZING butterflies from different collections and colored them in the shades of the paper, cut out and glue down. Done.

Here is the template I used, but there are loads of similar boxes on the net too. If you want to use it, click the photo to get the actual size before printing it.

My second project this week is a card using one of the beautiful scenery stamps from the Sweet Serenity Collection. I adore the flower corners of this paper from the Posy Patch Paper Collection and I thought I’d try to make it shine on the card.
