Happy Spring Project for Jen's Craft Corner's Spring Blog Hop


Hello and welcome!  I just got my first ever order from Peachy Keen stamps and just had to try them out on this project :)

If you are participating in the Spring Blog Hop for Jen's Craft corner you should have arrived from The Purple Scrapbooker.  If not, and you would like to go ahead and start the hop, you can go to the start of the hop at Jen's Craft Corner

Now, I haven't decided if I should turn this into a card, or a little wall hanging.  It will be one or the other.

It measures 6 inches square.  I used a full sheet of some Erin Lee Creative Paper from her My Favorite Things Stack for the base.
The grass along the bottom is a Stampin' Up patterned paper punched with the Martha Stewart grass punch.
The eggs along the bottom are from Recollections by Michael's.

The kids are both cut from the Cricut Lite cartridge called Playtime.  Their faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps Wide Eyed Kids face assortment.  To the little girl I added dew drops in her hair, and real blush to her cheeks using a q-tip (since I don't have any chalk.)  The patterned paper for her dress is from Echo Park's Little Girl collection, and the heart on her dress is a sticker from that collection.

The little boy has a couple metal Irock embellishments on his overalls.  I created them using Coordinations cardstock as I thought it looked nice as denim.  

The stickers that spell out the sentiment are from the Echo Park Little Girl collection.

I have some great blog candy for you today!  It's a perfect stamp set for Spring!!!!


This beautiful set is by SP & Company and it's called Rain Boots.  I really love my set of it and have used it several different ways!  It's photo-polymer so it's clear and super high quality to stamp well with any ink. 

For your chance to win this great set please leave a comment on this post :)  You don't have to follow me if you don't want to, but you may want to leave an e-mail address in your comment if you won't be checking back to see if you won.  If you do follow me, then that's awesome too ;)

I am now officially closing the comments for this post to chose and announce the winner.  Thank you for all your wonderful, sweet words :)

If you want to continue the hop please head on over to Lisa's Blog Crop & Create

Here is a full hop lineup list in case you need it :)
