Decorate to Celebrate #71 - Spring Decorations or Birthday

For my 3 Year Blogaversary Giveaway - Click HERE!!

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a great week!! Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of Spring??!! It's still chilly here and the flowers haven't started peeking through yet, but the birds are chirping away :) Speaking of Spring...it's time for another fun challenge at Decorate to Celebrate, and for Challenge #71, we are asking you to create Spring Decorations or Birthday Party Decorations :)


For my spring project, I created a wall hanging. I picked up the frame at Goodwill for a couple of bucks. After removing the glass (and darn it, breaking it!!), it was covered with white acrylic paint and then lightly sanded when it was dry.


All of the papers are from Fancy Pants' Park Bench stack. The tags are all Spellbinders Labels 17 and all of the edges were sanded. I picked up the small clothes pins from Hobby Lobby and then cut strips of the paper to cover them. Believe it or not, I used my Cricut!! Poor thing was so dusty and feeling neglected :( The letters are from Gypsy Font and I welded them together with my Gypsy.


I used Spellbinders D-Lites One and Three, as well as tags from Nested Lacey Pennants. The circles were punched from the paper. The smaller tag is a Spellbinders Tags and Flags die. The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz Life's Possibilities stamp set.


The larger circles were cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small dies. The smaller ones were punched from the paper. The rosettes are Tim Holtz Mini Paper Rosettes dies. The butterflies are Spellbinders Fanciful Flight dies...cut in black cardstock for the base.


Spring was also cut from the Gypsy Font cartridge. The bird is a Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary die, and it was covered in glitter.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - March Linky
  2. Every Day is an Occasion - March Linky
  3. Just B Creative Crazy - March Linky
  4. My Sheri Crafts #129 - Celebrate Spring
  5. All Crafts Challenge - Anything But a Card
  6. Make My Monday - Butterflies
  7. Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes (Altered Picture Frame)
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Spring or Birthday project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

  1. What a beautiful piece of spring time, Lisa! This is such a lovely piece of decor! Love each tag and the details you added to every single tag. I think my favorite part is how you've connected the word Spring, that bird is gorgeous. Here's hoping those birds in your area are singing the song of blossoms and sunny skies! Have a happy day today!

  20. My sweetest friend, this is everything I love about Spring: happy colors, sweet butterflies, and beautiful flowers! This is such a stunning wall hanging. Every detail is completely fabulous. There is so much to love on each base and I LOVE that you used tiny clothespins to hang them! I love these types of projects, but of course yours is instantly a favorite. You do everything with such beauty. This will surely warm your heart as we wait for the lovely season to arrive. Exquisite piece of art, my dear Lisa! You are a gem! :o)

Each panel is decked out with amazing embellishments and textures! I absolutely LOVE the fun title! Overall, such an incredible piece and will look amazing on the wall! Very creative and over the top inspiring!

I am exhausted-only reason I am on the computer is because she is napping! I hope to get in my craft room next week to craft-missing it:(

    Have a great Sunday my friend!
