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!
