Blogging Friends Blog Hop - I've Got Spring Fever


Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month's theme is "I've Got Spring Fever".  I chose to Welcoming Window Bundle.  It feels like a perfect way to celebrate Spring which has definitely arrived on the West Coast where I live!


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Lay on the card base and cut window through the top 2 layers using the window die.  It might take a couple of runs through to cut through the layers since it is quite thick.
  4. Emboss the Basic White piece using Bricks and Mortar Embossing Folder.
  5. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  6. Adhere the window pane piece on the inside of the card using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  7. Cut out shutters, 2 pots and shelf from Smoky Slate cardstock.
  8. Cut out brackets from Basic White cardstock.
  9. Adhere shutters on with Dimensionals.
  10. Adhere Shelf on with Mini Dimensionals - about 1/4" from bottom of window
  11. Adhere pots on shelf with Mini Dimensionals.
  12. Adhere brackets to shutters using Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
  13. Stamp leaves using Old Olive Ink.
  14. Colour flowers using Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Markers and then stamp on Basic White cardstock.
  15. Cut out using Die
  16. Adhere above pots using Dimensionals.  TIP:  I adhere the flowers to the shutters as they are in the window opening.
  17. Add a rhinestone to the end of each bracket on the shutters

Annual Catalogue Retired List

The new Annual Catalogue goes live on May 3rd. That means that some products will be retired, which is always sad. It also means that there will be amazing new products coming out! If you have items on your Wish List and haven't purchased them, you might want to consider getting your order in before the retired items are gone!
