Welcome Spring....

Hello crafty friends!! Stopping in today to share a sweet Spring layout I created using the adorable "Spring Cow" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.

This file is just darling and I have been wanting to use it for sometime now, and with Spring here I thought it would fit perfectly on a lovely Spring themed layout. I started by uploading the file to Cricut Design Space and cut out my pieces using my Cricut Explore Air 2. I then inked all of my pieces using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and adhered them together using Art Glitter Glue.

I used my Fancy Frames Dies from Craftin Desert Divas to cut out the three photo mats. I also used my paper trimmer to cut 1/4" strips of patterned paper to create a border around my page. 

I wanted a simple title and went with "Welcome Spring". I cut these letters out using my Cricut Explore Air 2. I adhered them onto one of the photo mats I had cut and added some stickles here and there for some added interest.

In addition, I also added some Stickles to parts of the grass, flower leaves and stems and also on the bumble bees wings. I added small drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in the center of each of my flowers as well. And to finish it off, I added a small rhinestone gem to the bows on the cow and the flower pot. 

Below is a complete list of the supplies used to create this Spring layout:
