Echo Park Springtime

with Geli

Hi everyone

I can't help marvel at how my youngest daughter Leah can see the fun in a rainy, rainy summer. 

To scrap this cute photo of her singing her little heart out in the rain I used the Echo Park Springtime collection. 

The colours are chirpy and fun, exactly what I wanted.

I used:

The little tag is a stamp with an Element Sticker  , some teal bakers twine  and a sweet little rainbow charm 

Did you know you can sew the felt embellishments on? 
They are lovely and chunky but go through the sewing machine with ease and don't loose their shape. Cool!

No gluey mess.

I made some ribbon flowers from pink velvet ribbon with silicone swirls.  
The swirls are perfect for shiny petal accents. 

Here's how:

Slip stitch nice and even along one edge of the velvet ribbon as shown. I used a length of 6 waves.

Pull tight and sew ends together with a few small stitches and finish off with a glitter brad

Cluster them together with a few mulberry leaves  and you're done! 

They are cute and tiny and will only take a few moments to make.
Have a great, wonderful day!
