April Showers

There is nothing like Springy greens and sunny yellow to bring some brightness into the gray cloudy April weather!
This month I created this April Showers layout kit which will be available for purchase at Craft City.
Be inspired by the flowery stickers or to create this layout, follow these instructions:

Ink the edges of the included die cuts.
 1. Ink the edges of each of the included die cuts including swirls, flowers, and clouds. To get into the small edges, I used a foam bruch with my brown ink pad.
All edges of the papers have been inked.
2. If you have a border punch of deco edge scissors, scallop one of the long edges of the greens and yellow cardstock. Ink all the edges of these blocks as well as the edges of the cream cardstock.

3. Adhere the blocks of greens and yellow cardstock to the cream 12X12 cardstock.
4. Adhere cardstock stickers across the page over the cardstock. Leave a small gap between the two strips.
5. I matted my photo on cream cardstock but this is optional. You may also fit two pictures if placed horizontally on the page. Adhere over the sticker strips.

6. Trim four inches of orange ribbon.
7. Tie the four inch strip onto the longer strip left.
8. Slide the ribbon to the spot on the ribbon desired and then adhere the ribbon over the photo using glue dots or glue runner.

9. Trim cardstock swirl in half.

10. Adhere next to the photo alongside the ribbon.

11. Assemble the paper flower using tacky glue and the center of each layer and topping off with the green rhinestone.

12. Adhere the selected cardstock stickers as shown.

13. Adhere the paper flower to the page over the swirls.

14. Apply foam square to the back of flower cardstock stickers.

15. Adhere them to the pages. Adhere the umbrella stickers, title, and journaling spot directly to the page. Adhere the clouds with foam dots above the umbrellas.

Finish off the page by handwriting "bring" and small raindrops coming from the clouds. Add your journaling above the photo.
