Springtime Collage


























This Spring time collage was so much fun to put together and I love the way it looks in my home. It brightens up the whole room. I found this fabulous idea to put scrapbook paper in a collage frame in Stampin Up magazine.  You will notice in the tutorial on step 6 I used a silhouette machine. Sadly, I don't have one of my own. I tell you I definitely plan on owning one of my own in the near future. It is so unbelievably AMAZING!! Lucky for me I have fabulous friend who you may all know, Heidi from Sew Craft Create let me use hers :) Yay!!!! The flowers I used in my Spring collage came from Jen from Tatertots and Jello who made this  Flower Wreath isn't it so cute!!! :)  The tiny pinwheels were really easy to make you can find a tutorial on how to make them here. I used toothpicks that I found at my local grocery store to put the pinwheels on. The string on the banner is baker's twine. I LOVE that stuff!!

I hope you all enjoyed my Springtime collage tutorial and have fun making one of your own! The best part of this is you can keep it up until Summer comes around. Also, next Springtime you can switch this year photos for next years photos :).
