Yes, it is!!! Woohoo! Happy first day of Spring! Or was that yesterday, since 2016 is a leap year? Oh – who cares, it is definitely, officially Spring now here 😀
I love sitting on our terrace, snuggled up in a warm jacket or even with a blanket (because those first sunny days are usually still pretty chilly), enjoying the light and the sounds of nature’s re-awakening. Yesterday the birdsong was joined by a funny, crunching noise – when I curiously looked around to figure out what it was, I saw a cute little brown mouse, sitting underneath a rose bush, happily nibbling away on a peanut. I wonder where he got that, maybe from a birdfeeder? Too cute – too bad I don’t come with a build-in camera so I could show you a picture, lol.
(We’ve had this mouse – or some ancestors- living in our garden for years, he (or they, lol) luckily never come into our house, even so our terrace door is often open – maybe they’re scared of our guinea pigs? ;D
All the Springtime songs and smells did inspire me to create a happy Spring collection:
There are some add-ons to go with the kit and even a little bonus if you pick up the complete collection:
And here’s some beautiful inspiration – a big “Thank you” to Pam and the girls from CT Hotspot for creating these! 😀
whew – some of you have been waiting for this… and here they finally are: The Daisy Flower Fairies! I know, I know – I’m lagging behind, lol, but I’m working on it and the other missing months will follow. In the meantime take a look at the daisies, I hope they will make you smile.
Oh, and I added some great basics – there’s a PU/cutting file version, as well as a CU version of these available.
These are soooo versatile, but I have to admit that the washi tape templates are my absolute favorites. It’s so quick and easy to create the perfect piece of tape for every layout or kit you’re working on. If you want to test them – there’s a free sample on the Studio Blog. (While you’re there, take a look at my other Cameo posts/tutorials, there’s always a freebie to go with them.
I’m yearning for Spring! After a very dreary Winter I loved working on this set of CU Sprinng ribbons – just looking at the colors makes me feel happy :D. These are great not only for using them in your kits, but also on your layouts. Pick them up for 50 % off while my CU store is still on sale (until Monday) – or get them all and save 60 %!:
I have a coordinating fan freebie new on my FB fan page – don’t forget to pick it up 😉

2. Eva aka eqrAveziur and I have teamed up again to bring you another awesome CU Grabbag: 6 full size CU products for 6 $ – that’s a great deal, even if you’re not a designer and want to use them for your layouts! It will be available unitl Feb 15th at theStudio’s CU store:
3. Even so it might be a little bit late for a January kit ;)… my “Snowdrop Fairy” collection is in my store now.
Snowdrops are among my favorite flowers – the first sign that Spring will be coming. So small and delicate and yet robust enough to endure snow and ice. Every year I can’t wait to see the first snowdrops in my garden – and since the snowdrop is the flower of the month for January I decided to shorten my wait by dedicating a kit to them.
This kit (with all it’s add-ons) is the first in a monthly series featuring the flowers of the month.
Today and tomorrow only, the bundle and the kit will be DOTD at theStudio: That means you can pick them up for 70 % off!!
Thank you for reading this long post, lol – here’s a little wordart freebie for you… Enjoy! 😀
