Dreaming Once Upon a Springtime

Once Upon A Springtime Shadow Box 5 CHA 2015 Clare Charvill Graphic 45

So many of us in the Northern Hemisphere are dealing with cold winters and never-ending snow days, so we're trying to bring some Spring into your week! Today, we are sharing gorgeous creations with Once Upon a Springtime! G45 Ambassador Clare Charvill and DT member Annette Green will brighten your day with beautiful projects. Hopefully you'll get some creative Vitamin D from this post!

First, we have a gorgeous Once Upon a Springtime shadowbox from the fabulous Clare. Tell us all about it, Clare:

"It’s lovely to see this gorgeous collection re -released as a Deluxe Collectors Edition.  I loved it the first time around and seeing it again was just as exciting. I really enjoy turning the flat G45 papers into 3 dimensional projects and fussy cutting out the characters.  I’ve used just a few of the papers to make this magical shadow box full of the whimsical woodland characters and flowers.  The fairies all have a hint of shimmer on their wings and Mr Toad is sporting a glossy coat.  I thought this shadow box would make a lovely addition to a fairytale bedroom." ~Clare

"This re-released collection is such a delight to work with. Having missed it upon it’s initial release, I’m thrilled be able to create with it now. I was drawn to the pinks and greens and had the best time making this large tag, as you can tell by the many different papers I have in my supply list. With a craft knife and some patience, you can achieve a laser-cut look for added dimension." ~Annette
