PaperHaus Magazine Spring Release and BLOG HOP


Can you believe it is March 1st?  I've got the perfect thing to get you in a springtime mood...the latest edition of the PaperHaus Magazine!  I believe I have 5 or so projects in there!

This is another spring inspired project I want to share today.  The colors of the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection are the perfect spring palette.  And since spring reminds me of "new" things, I wanted to do a page celebrating some "new" REAL friendships I've made!  I got to spend a scrappy weekend with some of my good online friends, who are now my friends IRL: Heather Leopard, Diana Fisher, and Sara Zenger (whom are all on the blog hop list below!).

I cut out the doilies from the patterned paper and then stitched around them on the inside with some gold thread.

Behind my photo cluster, I did some more stitching with cream colored thread to add some more texture.

A lot of edge distressing as usual, and lots of layers.

Along with the release of the magazine, we are celebrating with a GINORMOUS blog hop!!!  Most of the contributors are giving away RAK's on their blogs, too, so be sure to stop by!
