Easter Bunny

It's Laurie again, and I'm back with another layout using the A Rustic Spring kit! I almost veered away from the traditional spring theme, but I had this extra photo of my daughter with the Easter bunny, and I really wanted to use the Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Rabbits on a layout about it, so that's what I ended up doing.

I'm also rather excited about this one because I broke out my heat tool to use with the Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink Embossing Powder Forest on the Creative Embellishments Archway and chipboard words.

The papers on this one are 49 and Market Tattered PlaygroundFab Scraps Love Grows Here, and Bo Bunny Cottontail Festive and Hippity Hop. All four collections played so nicely together!

And I did a big 'ole mixture of flowers in my embellishment clusters using the 49 and Market Blossom Blends Bluebell49 and Market Shimmer and Shine Blush Jardin Secret (my faves!), and Prima Flowers Relics & Artifacts Blushing Bouquet.

And it wouldn't be a layout of mine lately without a little bit of misting splatter. For this one, I used the Shimmerz Spritz Plum Pudding. It splattered well, but the splatters were small, so you can't really tell unless you're looking at the layout up close.

There's more to come from this collection, and I'm having fun playing around and experimenting! While you're staying tuned, don't forget to visit The International Scrapbook Garden store and purchase A Rustic Spring kit of your own!

Thanks for looking!

Hi, guys, it's Laurie, and I am so excited to share with you my first layout using the new A Rustic Spring kit. I only used tools from the main kit on this layout, and there is so much to play with. Lovely papers from 49 & Market and Fab Scraps, beautiful Kaisercraft flowers, lots of chipboard and mixed media elements. You just have to check it out!

I used the 49 & Market Tattered Garden Tattered FlourishLettersCrackle, and Beauty papers on this layout, plus a lot of the 49 & Market Floral Mixology Pink Flamingo flowers.

For the background, I combined the Prima Micro Beads Grass with clear gesso (also from Prima) and used a feather stencil that came in a past ISBG kit to create a textured design.

I loved the pre-printed flowers on the patterned paper and how they gave me spaces to build flower clusters. I also used the Kaisercraft Paper Blooms Amethyst and the 49 & Market Vintage Shades Yellow flowers, plus a few of the Kaisercraft Lucky Dip Butterfly Wooden Shapes painted with either the Ingvid Bolme Chalk Ink Blossom Tree or green and purple misting sprays from past ISBG kits.

The chipboard frame around the photo is the Snip Art chipboard frame from the most recent Kisses and Snowflakes kit. It didn't fit into any of my layouts from last month, but it was perfect for this one!

I also did some splattering with the Shimmerz Spritz Plum Pudding, and that comes from the A Rustic Spring bonus mixed media kit. So that's the only A Rustic Spring product that isn't part of the main kit.

I really like how this one turned out. And for once, I actually used up a whole package of flowers on one layout! I'm getting better at using up my embellishments!

Thanks for looking!
