 Spring is a time for Easter and Mother's Day events but it also signals weddings, graduations, family reunions, and more.  LoveBug Creations has some new awesome products to unveil today for your spring celebrations.
  So do you want to add something special to your handmade projects?? If so, consider these new springtime collections for your crafting arsenal of rumple ribbon delights:

   And for something different, we are releasing the beautiful Mama's Roses.  
Each rose is hand-formed and hand-dyed; each has dimensions of  2"x 2" and can be used as is or inked, painted, stickled, and more - your imagination can provide lots of possibilities for these beauties - and they are feather-light so you can create lots of projects from layouts to cards to tags to mixed media creations to 3-D creations and more and not feel there's an anchor on your project, weighing it down!

And if that isn't enough... We've got 4 NEW Mama's Mesh Colors: Kraft, Ivory, Light Blue & Light Pink!!!
Also Mama's Mesh is now being offered to buy by the yard as opposed to in collections!

So settle back as we take you on a tour of spring celebrations and invite you to visit our LBC ONLINE STORE

 Now, onto my project!! I'm SUPER tickled about this!! For the past week I have been in a flower making frenzy and showed a couple sneak peeks on my Paper Flirtations Face Book page. I used the NEW BUTTERCUP Yellow Rumple Ribbon in my wreath!! This added pops of color and worked beautifully to separate colors. I hope you like this as much as I do!! The flowers were made using files from Fleurette Bloom.
Don't you just LOVE that Buttercup Yellow ribbon on the baby's breath? Did you spot the MANY POPS of ribbon throughout the wreath?? Oh how I love these new colors!!!
  How about some delicious LBC Blog Candy!

Fleurette Bloom Lovebug Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fleurette Bloom-LoveBug Creations Co-Hop. 
If you've flown over from Ilda then,  you've joined the parade, but if you've stumbled on this hop and want to begin with the first stop, soar over to Fleurette!

The pairing of LBC's fantastic rumple ribbon and other trimmings with Fleurette Bloom's outstanding SVG's and digital delights is a great way to jazz up your projects - who wants to be ho-hum? 
Not us grab your favorite beverage and settle back for some crafting inspiration 
for just the right touch of class

Most of you know my LOVE for flowers so... once I saw Fleurette sold flower SVG's I HAD to have them. I used the Rose file and the Lush Flowers kit for my project. A bit of this and a dash of that and TA DA!! GORGEOUS flowers were created!!  Lovebug Creations has the BEST Rumple Ribbon and blooms. I used ( now discontinued .. ) Lady Jenna ribbon and a green bloom. I used my flat iron to "un" rumple my ribbon. I LOVE how easy it is play with!! The pot was from the Silhouette Store and I used CTMH paper. Lesson... use THICK paper for this or .... well.. use thick paper :)  So.. onto my project. Hope you like it as much as I do!

How about some blog candy??

Luck 'O The Irish

Hello jolly friends!! So glad you stopped by!! First and foremost...
I certainly hope you wore your green and avoided the "pinch" from those annoying friends who LOOK for green!! Yea, I have some like that Anyways, I made a few "green" projects and am excited to show you!!
First, I made this corsage for one of the kiddos' girlfriends. He asked for a flower and did something better. :) I'm sure she will love it.... well, I hope anyways.

So.. last week I decided to make a lil "pot 'o gold" using a soup can painted gold and some of my hand sculpted flowers! I also used some of Lovebug Creations ribbon called Fool's Gold. I got the printable from Pinterest.( I apologize as I don't recall which one I got it St.Patricks Day printables and LOTS come up!!)  I love how the colors work so nicely together.
And... last but not least... we MUST have goodies!! My daughter and I dipped pretzels for these lil goody bags! The stamps here are Studio G that I bought years ago!!  Again, I used Lovebug Creations Fool's Gold rumple ribbon. I also used the fancy topper die from Jaded Blossom. I LOVE their dies!

Well, thank you for stopping by!! If you haven't already, we would LOVE it if you stopped by our Facebook page and "liked" it. >>> Paper Flirtations Facebook  We will be having a SPRING Contest soon so be sure to "like" us!!!
