Today is a Gift - Spring Home Decor


This week I was inspired by the beautiful Spring weather we are having, Crate Paper's Creative Weekly challenge (butterflies), and the Spring Home Décor challenge in the Moxie Fab World to create this...



ETA 4/2/13 - Just had to share that Crate Paper picked this as one of their runner ups for the challenge.  I'm featured on their blog along with several other talented crafters HERE!

Would you believe that I created this bright, spring décor mainly using Crate Paper's Snow Day collection?!  I had a lot of fun creating this and think it will now have a permanent place in my craft room.  If you are considering creating a framed décor item, I highly recommend embellishing at least part of the frame and removing the glass so you can include 3D items inside.  This adds much more interest to your project. 

Also, be sure to take a second look at some of your holiday/season specific papers...you might be able to use them in a whole new way!  In fact, Crate Paper's snowflake paper made some gorgeous butterflies when I was very intentional about where I punched the butterflies.  Although I didn't end up using them on this project, I thought I would still share a picture of them with you. 



Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter!  Remember...today is a gift, so enjoy every minute of it!
