SNR Spring Fling Blog-o-Log Event

I am so excited to be a part of Scrapbook News and Review's Spring Fling event. If you have not checked out their site before be sure to pay a visit...not only does SNR have a fabulous online magazine but they recently launched Card Universe too and between the two sites there is just a ton to explore and lots of great projects to feast your eyes upon! :)

The first project I wanted to share with you all is a 12 x 12 layout that I created for my LSS using My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow collection (a great Spring line). So, I decided to do a Park Days layout featuring my oldest son and I thought it would be fun to have pictures of him playing at the park both as a young toddler and as a big 5 year old to show how much he has grown.

Here are some close up shots so you can get a better look at the details and you can double click on any of the pictures if you want a full screen view.





Next, I wanted to share a set of clean and simple cards I created this week using a few of my Unity stamps. I love getting the most out of my stamps and supplies...for these cards I used one tree stamp (Burberry Tree) and just embellished it in different ways to make each card unique while still keeping them similar in style to work well as a set.





The sentiments are from Unity's Simply Said and Gratitude = Joy sets. For the cupcake tree I just carefully cut the little cupcakes out of a patterned piece of paper I had, put some Stickles on the frosting for some added interest, and put each one on a foam square for a little dimension.

Thanks so much for visiting today! If you have any questions about my projects feel free to ask them in your comment and I will make sure to provide you with an answer. I will be back tomorrow with my EtsyInspired card...I hope you will stop back by and play along in the EtsyInspired Challenge...this week's prize is not to be missed! :)

I love all your work! You can really see how your son is growing with that layout. What a treasure! The burberry tree looks so different each way you treated it. Such versatile ideas!

Beautiful pages and cards! I love the idea of placing a younger/older page side by side. That is one thing I love about scrapbooking...being able to see in a few minutes how much our children have grown. Thanks for the inspiration!
