Spring Nest – Crate Paper

Spring is fleeting here in Alberta and I try to make the most out of the few weeks between snow and hot sun! The birds singing and flitting around are my favourite sights and sounds. We captured this pretty Robin’s nest last spring, complete with tiny robin’s egg blue eggs!

I chose light and airy colours from the Flourish collection for my layout. I love the Aviary paper with the white painted brick and made that my jumping off point! I added sprinkles of paint and then decided to trim the aviary paper and add the pale coral stripe paper behind it, for added colour! Lately I have been loving having my background papers stacked on angles, for a “thrown together” look! Once I decided on where to place my photo I added paper from the card making pad, frames and tickets in behind it.

For a pretty title I used the gorgeous Fleur alpha and mixed it with the gold alpha from the sticker sheet I stitched them onto the painterly tag that reminds me of spring! After fiddling around with letter placement I decided to stack them and it seemed to fit the best that way on the tag!

In the bottom right corner I added another beautiful rose and trimmed it with the gold leaf trim and added a word strip on top. The little bird from the sticker sheet finished it off perfectly. The gold leaf trim is divine! I also tucked a piece up by the photo as a branch for the embroidered bird to perch on!

I couldn’t resist using the embroidered bird patch on this layout. I could have a hundred of these little birds and never get tired of them! The colours of thread in the bird are so rich and silky. She is perched happily guarding the nest!
