Springtime Make & Take -- February 23rd

Tired of winter? Me, too. That’s why I wanted today’s Make and Take at Scrapbook Plus to bring Spring to mind. Using Basic Grey’s Marjolaine line, I created a “Springtime” page. I love the flowers and the blues and greens of this line. with some added bling, the page pops.

As with all Wednesday Make and Takes when you purchase the supplies to make the layout, you’ll receive a free element that you need to complete the layout. This week’s free element is the “Treasure” box that you need for the message “Treasure Springtime.”

This is a quick layout to make with two 4 x 6 pictures and two 6 x 4. In a short time you can have a gorgeous layout with your favorite Spring memories. I plan on including pictures of the things I love about Spring – baseball, flowers, BBQs and golf. Whether you want to scrap spring break, spring fever or just some favorite spring memories, this page will work.

While you’re at the store you can pick up some extra paper from this line. For those that are curious, marjolaine means marjoram in French. Each paper design in this line (and there are lots of them) is named after foods. For example, there is black forest strata, éclair, fudge truffle and buttercream just to name a few. Despite the food names, the primary blue, green and brown papers include flowers, mod designs and classic designs (like plaids, argyle) so there’s something for everyone.
