We hope you are having a wonderful week so far! Today, Irit and Leah are joining us with some beautiful inspiration. Irit, has designed a gorgeous scrapbook page filled with beautiful details. She is featuring our Spring Lilacs Stamp set. Leah has created a beautiful note paper pad for her purse using our Spring Lilacs stamp set too! You will love this gorgeous idea!

Here’s Irit sharing with how she created this beautiful scrapbook layout!

“Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit here with my new scrapbooking page with a story.

I was born and grown up in the former USSR and lilacs were the very common there. I’ve seen them on my way to anywhere and the smell was just delicious. I still dream lilacs, but there are no such here in Israel (I think they need the cool weather). So last year during our Armenian vacation I found those flowers of my childhood. The smell, the colors, the texture- everything was so much in my memories. So I began to take photos.  And then I asked my DH to take some of mine within those lilacs. He said that he is not a good photographer and it happened to be true. No good photos of me with those lilacs. But then I am a good photographer most of the time and his photos were just great. And then I got this most gorgeous LILACS stamp set from Inspired by Stamping new January release and this lilac page was born.

As the paper pads released by IBS were a bit late for this post, I decided to make my own patterned paper with Lilacs stamped and colored over the pale   almost solid paper and I really love result.

One single image was colored, cut out and glued over the lower corner.

Then I stamped birds. There are two different bird stamps in this set and I stamped the smaller over the paper and cut out the bigger colored one and glued it over the photos near the bird cage.

Then I discovered this beautiful sentiment in the same new set and wanted to add it over my page. But it was with “wishing you” before” a beautiful…”, so I just cut it as seen.

Then it was the butterflies turn and they were first stamped over the paper and then stamped again, colored, embellished and added for the 3D effect over the first stamped image.

Some other embellishments were added, a title was made and my Lilacs will be kept in an album. Is there a way to add some smell to our scrapbooking pages? I would really love the smell my childhood again. ~ Irit”

Next up is our talented designer Leah! She has designed a beautiful note paper holder with a shabby chic twist. I love all her details throughout! Her coloring of the lilac stamp set has us swooning! Here is Leah sharing with us how she made her project!
“Hello fellow crafty friends! Leah joining you today and I have a very spring inspired project to share with you today which is a welcome sight to me as in my part of the world we are buried in snow and cold. I am a tad bit obsessed with having note paper handy wherever I am, whether it’s in my purse or at home and was so excited to find this fabulous Silhouette cut file to satisfy this obsession as well as to gift these little gems to others. One of the newest released stamp sets from Inspired By Stamping was perfect for this project called Spring Lilacs.

The Spring Lilacs set is such a beautiful set of images that can be used year round, not just for spring. The delicate script stamping is also from the set as well as the butterfly and sentiment.
I colored the images with Copic markers and added some crochet tape and fancy borders and finished it off with a sprinkling of sequins.

I am looking forward to giving this note holder to a dear friend and I am looking forward to making more! I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you have a blessed day. ~ Leah”
