Hello Spring

Welcome…I’m so happy you’re here!  I’m also happy that spring is on the way…because oh how I LOVE spring!  Seriously…everything about it.


Spring also means that we’re super close to seeing the new, 2018-2019 Annual Catalog…which is good…REALLY good…but it also means that some of our favorite products will retire…like the In Colors.   And this year…that means these beauties.



It’s funny…I remember when these colors were introduced in 2016.  I was at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City…and one of the presenters said that while she loved the colors she didn’t think they were meant to be used all together.  A bit later the CEO at the time…Shelli Gardner…came out and said “YES!”…they were meant to be used together.  It was lighthearted and fun…and at the time I wasn’t certain about it all.  But now…I’m certain that I agree with Shelli…that they ARE meant to be used all together…like here.



I especially love Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy.  They’ve become a staple for me…and I think I’ll miss them most of all.  And these colors in the striped grosgrain ribbon…SWOON!



With the color coordination done for me…these little bags came together in a hop.  First…I cut the tags using Flirty Flamingo cardstock…and embossed them with the Simple Stripes folder.  I then stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim ink on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock…and punched it out with the Duet Banner punch.  I used white powder to emboss the bunny image onto  a 1-3/4″ Dapper Denim circle…and layered that under the sentiment banner and a bit of Emerald Envy cardstock die cut as grass.  I assembled the tag and attached it to the Peekaboo Peach ribbon on the treat bag.
