LAD Spring Mix Preview

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a preview of the new Lizzie Anne Designs Spring Mix Set, called Follow Your Dreams. All the details about the Mix Club can be found here on the LAD website. This Mix set is fantastic! It is just full of some wonderful images and sentiments. I went on a creating spree when I received it!

This first card features one of the Easter egg images - I love this fancy pattern. I put some springy colors together to create my stamped background. Wouldn't this egg image be so pretty embossed?

I added a strip of stitched felt to ground my sentiment. A pretty pastel button was the perfect pop to finish it off.

My second card features this eclectic line drawn image. I love the collage effect it has.

I stamped the image and paper pieced her dress, then matted the image with some green cardstock. I stitched around the outside edge with black thread to mimic the doodled border around the image. The background was stamped with the curly border image from Timeless Textures. This background image goes so well with so many different things, I love to use it.

I tied some baker's twine around my card and added a black button. I love this image!

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you like what you've seen so far! Head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs Blog to see what the other DT members have created for the Spring Mix and to find out how you can get your own set!
