Pattern Happy and Ellen Hutson Blog Hop


Eeekkk, I'm so excited to be doing my official post as a Design Team member for Pattern Happy!  Today is extra special because we are partnering up with Ellen Hutson - who will be carrying Pattern Happy in her store! Yippee! 

***Not only do we have bunches of inspiration, we have prizes!!! Make sure to leave comments at each stop on the hop for a chance to win one of two Pattern Happy prize packs! Leave your comments before April 5th, at 11:59pm PST. Winners will be contacted via email.***

You should have arrived here from Kristine's blog. If not you may want to go back to Pattern Happy blog and start from the beginning. 

The theme is spring and although we have sun fun spring papers (called Rainbows - see it here) I went out of the box and used some of the other papers for my projects.  I like to show how versatile these fun products can be. 

For the first of the projects, I created a couple of cards using the Geofetti collection



For my first card I latered some of the pattern paper behind a die cut panel.  I then stamped the clouds using the Cloudy Day Pattern Background stamp and then just cut out a few of them.  I like stitching, so I added some to the clouds and the die cut grass (which I cut out of the Robots paper).  I then cut the umbrella using my Silhouette and mounted it on foam squares. 



Next up, a card with rain boots... be still my heart - pink boots :)  I would love a pair of baby pink rain boots!  Once again, I layered up some of the pattern paper from the Geofetti collection and the grass is from the Robots collection.  I stamped the Hello using the Mini Greeting stamp and then die cut it out with the Mini Containers die and mounted on foam squares. The boots were cut with my Silhouette and mounted with foam squares as well. 

Playing once again in the Pinspirational challenge: 



Finally, we couldn't have a spring themed hop so close to Easter without some sort of Easter project.  I used the Robots paper to create a little gift box (full of mini eggs.... working hard here not to eat them myself, LOL) 

I just cut and layered papers for the box and then created a tag.  I cut the carrot with my Silhouette and then stitched it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wish you could actually buy umbrellas and wellies designed like yours, the egg gift box is so bright and spring like and you have far far more restraint than me not eating that chocolate.
