Welcome Spring!

A very big Hello to Everyone!

When I tell people I do “scrapbooking”, 
many of them think of a sugar paper book 
purchased from a newsagent or 
something made out of scrap etc 
with photos and 
several newspaper or magazine cuttings , 
and are usually quite confused with the whole idea.
How, where, why several questions fill up their mind.

But now things are different and the world of scrapbooking has taken a leap.
We now have designers papers, embellishments and more beautiful ways to
show off your wonderful photos, to put a meaning,
to add a story to them, a way to express your emotions.
By using designer papers and embellishments you can create 
wonderful pieces of art which can be treasured for years.

Here rolls in my very 1st DT
step- by- step photo tutorial.

Spring! Who doesn't love Spring.

Spring is nature’s way of saying, "Let’s party!" 
                         - Robin Williams

Filled with freshness, lively designs and happy colours
 Heidi Swapp - September Skies Paper Pad suited the best to work with.

The theme being Spring, I choose the following papers
with flowers and bright greens and reds.
(oh these flowers are so beautiful!)

After having chosen the papers now its time to decide on
which paper goes at the top, bottom and which one stays in-between 
as well as what combination makes a good attractive base for the layout,
(after a bit of thinking...)

I decided to go with the floral patterned paper being at the top.
(It is upto you to decide which paper you want to embellish.)

Now onto the next step.
Using the amazing super sturdy Tonic super trimmer,  
I have trimmed the following papers according to the sizes mentioned below.
(12" x 12" - Base)
 no need to trim
(11.5" x 11.5"- Centre)
(11" x11" - Top)

Viola! After deciding their positions it is time for the icing.
I picked these 2 papers from the Stack with some 
amazing quotes, words, patterns, bright and happy snap cards .
(It is always a good idea to use the snap cards.) 

 Having looked at all the snap cards I picked few of the co-ordinating ones,
especially the florals attracted me along with the abbreviations and
 the photo mats and now we are all ready to add the toppings.

Lets begin assembling now.
Using the  super red tacky tape I aligned and pasted the 3 papers 
on one corner as shown in the image below.
(There are several ways to arrange these papers)

Now its time for the snap cards arrangements
 Using the 3D foam tape and the red tacky tape
I arranged the snap cards and the photo mats.

There are several ways to arrange it.
Playing around with it all is indeed super fun. its time to add some cherries on the top using the amazing and super cool
(These beauties are a must, they are just amazing and can do 
wonder in beautifying your projects )

And here it is...all ready...
