This bright and sunny collection is just perfect for this time of year! We begin with this heartwarming LO by Arlene Cuevas! She definitely captured the loving spirit of Secret Garden! Follow along with Arlene's fun and informative video tutorial to see how this stunning work of art was made! Take it away, Arlene!

"I can’t seem to get enough of the Secret Garden papers by Graphic 45! My husband took this picture of us at a restaurant on Mother’s Day and I already knew I wanted to create a scrapbook page with this picture using Secret Garden! The vintage-spring themed papers are so beautiful and versatile - truly perfect to use for almost any project from scrapbook pages, cards, tags, altered boxes and canvases! The papers marry nicely with wedding/anniversary projects, baby projects, and more. It’s has quickly become one of my new favorites by Graphic 45!" -Arlene

This fabulous creation displays pretty paper layers with fabulous fussy cut elements to create a joyful scene. It's just perfect for vacation or family photos! Here is what Romy had to say about this lovely layout!

"Last summer I went on a city trip to Vienna with my dad. Most of all we really enjoyed our visit to princess Sissi’s castle. On this photo we are posing in front of a fountain that is part of the huge castle garden. I wanted to create a whimsical and magical lay-out to match the photo and figured that ‘Once upon a springtime’ would be the perfect collection to achieve that." -Romy
