Happy Spring

Hi everyone, I am a guest designer on Shesasassylady today.  I wanted to share with you a festive spring sign made with Art Philosophy, Kates Abc's, and MS seasonal Cakes. I also used a new Graphic 45 paper stack, called Little Darlings. I love this paper and didn't want to cut into it. I also used my Gypsy, but you don't need one for the project.

I started with Art Philosophy and chose the Oval5 Banner sized to 8.18" on my Gypsy. I cut one out of chipboard and one from patterned cardstock.

I cut several 12x1", or 12x1.5" strips of patterned paper and made rosettes out of them. I glued them in a pleasing pattern on the Oval 5 cut. Leave enough room for the Happy Spring and the girl with bunny. After these were attached, I glued buttons on top.

From Kates Abc's I cut the Girl 4 with all of her layers at 3.68". I glued her offset from the middle of the banner. I cut Happy Spring from MS Seasonal Cake at 2.29".

Here is the finished plaque. I inked the edges slightly on some of the cuts.

Thanks Sheila for having me as a guest designer, Beth.
