Spring has Sprung!

It’s time.  No really. It’s time!  It has been a long and coooooold winter up here in Canada (I know, I know, it should be a long and cold winter up here), so let’s just say I am ready for spring!
So, when Doodlebug’s Simply Spring collection arrived on my doorstep, this collection went straight onto the crafty table.  It might still be white and bleak outside, but my crafty space is filled with the spring colours and cute spring icons that make me smile.  Goodbye winter – hello spring!
I decided to whip up a few treat containers for some of my colleagues – a little surprise for the first day of spring!   With the new doodle stamps and doodle cuts, these were a spring breeze!
Each treat container is constructed out of textured cardstock and topped with patterned paper from the 6X6 paper pad.  Because these treat containers are quite small, the scaled down patterns in the 6X6 are a perfect fit!
And the great thing about working with the new stamps is you can even play around with layering!  This little bird is a separate stamp from the turtle, but I felt they were just meant to be together!
If you have never made a mini milk carton before, you will be amazed at how easy they are.  There are definitely die cuts out there to purchase, but a rectangle sheet of paper and some scissors will do the trick as well!   Here’s a little template to get you started!
Hopefully these little creations bring a little spring smile to your face and inspire you to get crafty with this new collection! If you are looking for more information on the products used, come on by the Doodlebug blog for a full listing!

Thanks for stopping by!
