Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Being busy with family this weekend may not allow you the time to scrapbook but I wanted to post this simple and quick layout that is super easy to re-create. All you need is your trimmer, corner rounder, brown fine-tip marker, adhesive, various ribbons, a clear button and a flower to embellish. I used a piece of green Bazzill cardstock for the background, white for the title and tag and brown for the photo mats. The fabulous Upsy Daisy Ice Cream Shoppe papers and letter stickers are so fun and easy to work with, the scalloped edge was easy to cut out and added a little bit of whimsy!

I faux stitched to create that home-made feel and to bring in the brown that helps to anchor the layout.

I hope that everyone enjoys the Daisy Diaries, stay tuned to see some new and fabulous creations using our new paper lines. If you have not seen them yet check out the website. They are FABULOUS! Happy Easter!

Are you ready for Spring?

I know I am!

And to help get you in the mood for sunny skies,birds and butterflies and a wonderful palette of colours in nature, we would love to share two pages from our designers, Davinie and Sharly.

Davinie used the "Perfect Petals" line in her layout. Look how she cut out the flower shapes from the paper and used it to add dimension to her page. You can also see our "Lissy's ABC" stamps in her titlework, as well as our "Daisy Rubs" rub-ons.

Sharly used a beautifully patterned paper from the "Ice Cream Shoppe" collection. She matted a few acrylic shapes with matching paper from the line, threw in a few blossoms and buttons, and voila!
A fresh and eye-catching page...

Don't forget our Spring Contest" for a chance to win some brand new Upsy Daisy paper, straight from the press!
