Happy Easter

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend and won't be tempted with too many chocolate treats tomorrow!
Hopefully spring is just around the corner, despite the snow up country, and we will soon be able to get out and about, enjoy some better weather and take some photos to scrap. The March kit is full of gorgeous floral papers from Prima just perfect for those spring pages.
Every kit comes with a professionally printed booklet showcasing what the design team have created with the kit, so for those of you who don't get the kit I thought you might like to see some of the team has been up to. There are still a few of these kits available for single purchase over in the shop.

Lou, On this LO I wanted to keep it quite simple so opted for the Kraft card as a background. I used circles to lead the eye intothe photo, and tore the fancy edges of the paper to add as strips behind the photo. I used a 6 petal flower punch and added rolled bits of paper and a painted chipboard shape to create an embellishment and layered it with detail cut from the patterned paper and paper twirls. One rub on was split and added to the left and rigt of thephoto, and the alpha stickers were added around the outer circle, with hand journaling added to the inner circle.


Cathy has distressed the blocks of paper to add extra depth to her page using a Tim Holtz paper distresser.



Tracy has made this stunning card, she has used the lovely tab punch to create an embellishment for the top of the card.





















I loved this kit as there was so much that could be cut out of the papers and used to embellish my pages, this page although time consuming was very simple with lots of handcutting and silicone glue.





Don't forget the March challenge, we have had some stunning enteries and I think the design team are going to find it hard to choose a winner. If you would like to enter you still have time, the closing date is the 12th April just link your page to this blog or email it across to sarah@sarahscardsltd.com you could be in with a chance of winning a £10 e-voucher and an opportunity to join the design team to produce an example layout for the May challenge.
