Easter Cupcakes

Here's another layout I created using the Spring Zing kit with an Easter theme this time!
 The photo is of the cupcakes I made for Easter! I started by tying a bow in the lovely green ribbon and stuck it down. I clustered lots of the embellishments, like some flowers, a cupcake case, the bird (which I outlined and added form dots the the back to give it some height), a journalling spot, a fabric bow, a crocheted flower and some twisted orange bakers twine. I then added some of the green thread to the paper strip at the end and tied it in a bow and added two paper clip flags on to the top of the photo.

I'm having a problem with what to do with old packets of  Thickers that don't have that many letters left and I can't seem to throw them away(!!) so I made up the title using lots of different ones, I'm quite pleased with how it looks too!

I have also added these colourful embellishments to the shop today!
They are only £2.00!!

There won't be a new kit next month as I will be added new products, if you are a Facebook fan you may have and will be seeing some sneaks of things to come!!

Signs of Spring

I created this layout using the Spring Zing kit. I love these bright, springy colours and they went really well with these photos of spring flowers I took!
I only used some letters and a little bit of patterned paper on this layout the rest in from the kit! I used the large butterfly as a template and used a paint dabber to go around it. I used two of mini cupcake liners, I flattened them then added a punched scalloped circle from patterned paper to stick in the middle of them. I also used from the kit the green lace, yellow rick rack, orange border washi tape, a little word flag, a button, the small journalling spot for the date and the handmade yellow gingham circle embellishment and crocheted flower!
Here are some close ups:

Hope you like it!
