Spring Printer's Tray: Crop Circles April Blog Hop

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to the Crop Circles April Blog Hop !! This is our second blog hop, and hopefully many more will come ! Our theme this month is Spring projects - scrapbook pages, cards, home decor, 3D items ... anything with a Spring connection ! So please follow around the Blog Hop and visit all of the lovely ladies involved. You have until April 12th to finish the rounds. For every comment you leave along the way, your name will be entered to win a fun prize !! So after you are finished here, keep going on around and spread the comment love !! And there are some other blog candy surprises along the way as well !! You should have ended up here from Cheryl Ashworth's blog. If I am your first stop, just follow along until you get back here again ... easy and fun !!

I thought the perfect project for me to show for a Spring theme was my Spring Printers Tray !! If this is your first time to my blog, I do a Printers Tray home decor project for every occasion ... Fall, Hallowe'en, Christmas ... you name it !! Look them up if you like my Spring one !! Take a look at what I created !!


Isn't that sweet !?! I must say, I just LOVE my Printer's Trays ... and I think this one is one of my favourites !! I had a lot of fun using so many different products ... current stamp sets, retired stamp sets, punches, dies, DSP, embossing folders ... way to many products to name !! I think 2 of my favourite squares though use the retired Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set from last years Spring Mini. LOVE how sweet they turned out !! And of course, spring is all about flowers and butterflies ... So I used a lot of them on this project ! But I did keep the colors as soft and spring-like as possible. Love the effect !! If you have any questions about any of the products I used, please don't hesitate to contact me ! I would love to answer any questions you may have. 

Thanks for coming by today !! I hope you follow along with us on our April Blog Hop !! And remember, you have until April 12th to comment on as many blogs as you can ! The next stop on the hop is the talented Rhea Skomorowski's blog.

  15. GORGEOUS!!!! I love absolutely everything about it. I have done 2 printer trays before, as gifts. Time to do one for myself, they are so much fun. Great idea to do one for every occasion/holiday. Thanks for the inspiration, adding it to my list of things to get on my shopping trip to SJ :) It's hard to pick my favorite thing about yours- the gnome is adorable and I love those little flowers
