Hello, it's Magda! I'm very happy to share with you my first project crafted from Crate Paper. When I first came upon the three new collections from CHA Winter, Maggie Holmes, DIY Shop and Party Day, I thought they'd be a great option for upcoming Spring projects! The lovely bows and other assorted embellishments from the Maggie Holmes collection stole my heart, and the flower patterned paper from DIY Shop is some of my all time fave! So, I thought I would do something for my craft space! I looked at my wall and right away, saw a messy, disorganized board, hanging below my desk - definitely not ideal! Time for a change...
I perused my Pinterest boards and from them, selected a number of inspiring images symbolic of Spring. Most reflect pastel colors, funny quotes, beautiful imagery and free printables. I decided to print some of the "printables", as well as the photos, to try and organize a new "Spring" mood board!
To get started, first, I made a layout invoking "Spring" using quotes and an updated self-portrait I just took a few days ago. I chose a bright color palette to go with them; yellow, green and a bit of light mint. I also included a camera from the Maggie Holmes collection.
My favorite decorative touch is the cloud with hanging hearts (Studio Calico). I trimmed the cloud from patterned paper (DIY Shop) and then hung the wood hearts from it's backside using embroidery floss.
Following the completion of the layout, I chose printables I liked and decorated them with Crate's patterned papers and embellishments. I then glued a few pins to the board and adhered colorful bows to them. This is the result!
What do you think of my "Spring" mood board? Talk about a great addition to my craft space! I love it! I recommend that everyone give this project a try - it's a definite change to my scrapbook space and is truly uplifting!
