April (P)inspire Me Mood Board

Welcome to April!  
With April, comes lots of showers that can lead to early blooming.  
It makes me think ahead to my garden, picnics and the smell of cut grass.  It is like a new beginning.  A beginning of a new season or life.  Enjoy this (P)inspiration board, filled with all things that make you smile.  Yellow, for sunshine, fluffy white bunnies and chunky babies for new growth and butterflies for fresh air.    I think this board is full of natural ideas.  
I can not wait to see what you all will create!  

Let's take a look at how the Paper Issues Design Team was inspired by this board. 
Let's start with my layout.  I was drawn to the pale yellows, the baby and whites throughout the board.  I used Crate Paper Little You.  It is still available in the Paper Issues store.

Let's take a look at a few creations from our Design Team....

Corri makes incredibly clean and beautiful cards.  I love the tiny bow, there are lots of those, in several different colors, recently added to the store!

Take a look at this gorgeous card by Lisa.  Her attention to detail and soft color pallet drawn from the floral bouquet, is really beautiful.  

Rachel created two cards from this board.  She drew from the emoji faces and the floral bouquet.  I love it!  

Her second card is inspired by the Stay Weird and all the yellows in the collection.  Both cards are absolutely perfect!

Not only has Kathleen provided an amazing project, full of life off the page, she has also created a FREE cut file you all of you.  You can go to the store to grab it HERE.  

Orange Gearle decided to document her recent Easter activities.  Take a look at the clever shaker eggs a cute photo!  This is layout is full of fun.  She also has a FREE cut file for you.  

Enza's fussy cutting was totally worth the end result!  Look how beautiful she layered the flowers around the photo of her daughter.  I love the darker background.  

Lastly, here is Sherry's  contribution.   Her use of mixed media has proven to be a stunning piece of art.  I would proudly hang this in my home.
