Spring has Sprung

Spring really has sprung here and I am enjoying being outside in the beautiful sunshine.  This time of year, everything is so green and fresh.  And speaking of fresh.  I am loving the fresh, bright colors in the new Prima paper lines.

Here I used more of my farm photos (this time of Ainsley) and the scraps from an earlier project to make this colorful layout.

Flamingo Scraps products used:  Prima Marketing Raspberry Tea Paper Collection, Glitter Cardstock Stickers, Solid Flowers and E-line pearls.  Maya Road butterfly and Deborah font chipboard, Cotton Candy Maya Mist.

I cut the frame out of a larger piece of paper, saving the gorgeous quilted pattern for a later project.  And, of course I misted the chipboard for a quickly finished look.  And I have found the, what I feel, is the perfect place to do my misting.  This cute little pail from the Target $1 spot.  I saw Marion Smith (from Prima) do this on her UStream Video.

I place my goodies to be misted inside, on top of a stack of coffee filters.

And mist away.  When I am done, I can lift the top coffee filter with all my goodies right out.  The sides of the pail keep mist from spraying all over my workspace.  And, the best part, if I want to use the heat gun to quickly dry my items, they don't go blowing everywhere.

Hope you are having a great day.




  1. Cute!! Love the patchwork look :)

  2. Great. Now I need a pail and coffee filters. You are a master enabler! LOL I love your layout. You know I love clean and linear! Ainsley is beautiful.

  3. I really love the pail and coffee filters idea. We've been using a box and newspaper and of course it gets soggy. Thanks for the tip!
