Even here in rainy Ireland, we are starting to see the first signs of spring. We are becoming reaquainted with sunshine and watching with anticipation as the tulips in our back garden poke their heads through the soil. Many of us crafters are finding ourselves with more energy to create beautiful things. Over at Qwowi, Jill Montag is celebrating spring with a fantastic Spring Scrapbooking Showcase. In this showcase, Jill offers reviews on a variety of new and exciting scrapbook collections to inspire you in your own projects. Here are a few excerpts:
Jenni Bowlin Studio: Farmer’s Wife and More
“The Farmer’s Wife Collection is no exception. This line of 6 12″x12″ patterned papers, 1 label die-cut paper, 4″x4″ mini paper set and journaling cards is distinctly Jenni Bowlin, yet new and different from her previous work. Yes, a couple pieces do directly relate to rural matters (like cows), but basically it’s just a fun line with a bit of a vintage/old-fashioned flavor. Where else can you find a collection consisting of flowers, cherries, stars and flour labels? Delish!”
Zinnia by Little Yellow Bicycle
“This spring collection — so new that it isn’t even in stores yet – is all about glitter, lace cardstock and decorative edges — in other words, it’s basically candy for scrapbookers.”
“This collection is perfect for spring and all its associated events, including Mother’s Day. The colors are deep and rich: pink, purple, orange and green, and the designs are stunningly beautiful.”
