Fussy Cut Spring Florals {Webster's Pages}

 
For me, my favorite Spring products are the beautiful botanicals/florals in the Websters Pages  patterned papers.  I have to admit I always feel a little thrill when I know that Brandin O'Neill is at the drawing board working on a new collection.  One thing I know is that there will always be gorgeous floral's in the collection papers, designs that are perfect for fussy cutting and embellishing with.  For me, that collection this time around was 'Growing Up Girl'....I actually used 7 papers for this page!  It's been a super snowy and cold winter here in Canada this year so I am really looking forward to Spring!  So I wanted this layout to be all about the warmth and happiness of Spring.  It's a time to get back into shape, get outdoors, exercise and just breathe!  ....I did lots of fussy cutting of the many beautiful floral images in the patterned papers. 
 
 
It was March break here in Canada, the kids are off school so when I sat down one night (watching Elementary on TV) and began cutting out images from the 'Embrace Life' and 'Make a Wish' papers, my daughter Chloe couldn't resist picking up a pair of scissors and joining me in clipping out all the pretty designs.  Chloe's favorite was that little pink and white butterfly (above).
 
 
I love the freshness polka dots add to a Spring layout, so I used the dotted side of the 'See the World' paper, tearing of little snippits of the paper and used it as a edger for my page design.   I just love that big large cabbage rose image as well, with thelittle green/white/rose color hydrangeas!
 
 
I'm trying to get myself to journal a little more on my pages.  So for this page I just handwrote a few key ideas on one of the patterned papers, matted with the pink paper and stacked the words.  (the locket is another sweet image I cut out from the patterned papers).  The love arrow is a new design from Dusty Attic Designs (as is the swirly vine design beside it). 
 
 
The flower is a random loose bloom I had lying around in my stash from an old Recollections pack, and the twine is from a Websters Pages 'Quick Pix' packet. The cute li'l light bulb design is a paper clip from the 'Sprinkled with Love ' collection from Websters Pages.
 
Websters Pages Supplies used on this project:
Patterned Paper:  Growing Up Girl (Embrace Life-both sides, Make a Wish, See the World, Express Yourself, Honor Yourself, Dress to Impress, Live Out Loud-background paper)
Embellishments: Sprinkled with Love (Light bulb Paperclips)
 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, I really appreciated all the lovely feedback!
