Do you love spring as much as “we” do? We happen to think that “Pink Plum” is the perfect paper crafting collection for accenting your spring inspired layouts this year.

Window boxes, both large and small, leave plenty of room for
surprises. This particular layout houses a large window box. Within the box
sits a long series of pattern papers and homemade embellishments. The box
serves a “frame” for these items and is the base for the title.
Speaking of popular, paper rosettes can be found just about anywhere these days. They’re really simple to make and offer up all kinds of design options. All that’s required to make them is paper, tweezers, scissors and glue-dots. Trim a medium size circle from paper. Cut circle in a spiral-like fashion. Wrap spiral around tweezers tightly. Remove wrapped spiral from tweezers and adhere rosette at base using large glue-dot so that it doesn’t come apart.
