Cutters Creek Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cutters Creek Spring Blog Hop! All of our designers have created some wonderful Spring projects featuring products that you can purchase at the Cutters Creek Store! If you would like to start from the beginning head on over the the Cutters Creek Design Team Blog. Each blog along the way will have a link to the next blog in the chain. Don't forget to make sure you are following each of our personal blogs and leaving comments along the way to enter to win a box full of CHA Swag!!!!

My project features the super cute Springtime paper collection from Echo Park, along with some Fun Flock and some American Crafts brads.


What I love about the Echo park collections is that they come with everything you need for a great project - just add cardstock!  It's a little hard to read my title, but it says "what the bunny brought", using the alpha stickers that come right in the package.  These are some of the few alpha stickers I enjoy using, as they are so easy to line up without any rulers, pencil lines, or whatever.  I also used stickers from the collection to create the little scene on the right page.  Allowing the tree to go slightly off the edges of the paper and trimming makes the whole thing feel more grounded instead of just floating there.  I have plenty of room for my journaling  in the pink section on the side of the page; I haven't included it yet because I finished this layout at a crop last weekend and I have a rule about no journaling at crops.  I have found myself in the past talking a little too much (I know, me?  Really?!) and writing what I'm saying instead of what I mean to write, so now the rule.

Now, for the extra embellishments on my page.  I anchored the thin pink strips with some American Crafts pearl brads.  Then I created a little bunny and added Fun Flock for his fur.

I chose to use a die-cut bunny from my Cricut, but you can do the same technique with a stamped image, simple die-cut, or sticker.  (Sorry the picture's a little blurry, but he looks really cute in person!)  Just cover the portion of the image you want flocked with a liquid glue (I used Glossy Accents, because it was handy) then sprinkle on the flock.  I press mine into the glue to make sure it holds, then knock off the excess and return it to the jar.

  11. I am always afraid to put just one picture on a page, that it would look too lonely. Then I see it done properly with the insight of another scrapper and then realize that sometimes less is more. Beautiful!

  30. I love your LO & the spring colors! I like your journaling rule! I don't go to many crops, but sometimes have to watch what I do when writing my journaling even by myself! I like to scrap while sitting in front of the computer and if I chat that messes me up sometimes.
