Hello, bienvenue, and willkommen to the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day 2014 Blog Hop! I hope you'll be inspired to craft as you make your way through the 16 blogs of the design team members and participate in each of the challenges!

 MY CHALLENGE: Use flowers on your project - simple as that! I'm hoping all these April showers we're getting lately will bring May flowers so I'm trying to nudge the weather along and use flowers as much as I can :)

Journaling says: Little miss Jane seemed to think this box of goods was hers!

How to: Paint a diagonal rainbow using watercolors on a white cardstock background. Once it's dry, sew lines across the paint. Punch petals from all the papers in the Plus One by Amy Tangerine collection. Layer two of each kind of petal together, sew down each pair, then arrange them into flowers with a fabric brad or puffy sticker in the center. Paint a chevron stamp white then stamp it twice on the center of the layout. Apply a scalloped border rub on to the bottom stamp. Layer an embellished tag and photo over the stamping. Add alphabet stickers and a puffy sticker to the photo. Journal on a journaling tag die cut, stamp the date below, and tuck it under the right side of the photo. Add another puffy sticker and a wood veneer card above the photo. Adhere the homemade flowers in clusters around the layout.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, fabric brads, puffy stickers, alphabet stickers, embellished tag, wood veneer card, scalloped border rub on, chevron stamp, journaling card die cut, roller date stamp, adhesive, pen: American Crafts; Petals punch: Fiskars; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Watercolors: Prang; Paint: Americana; India ink: Artworks
