Signs of Spring


Every month at Kate Hadfield Designs we have a completely free scrapbook template you can download. I have used this great layout to create a digital page to celebrate the onset of Spring

Pop over to Kate Hadfield Designs Blog and you will find Framed in the Free Templates section

At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.

For the base layer I used my goto paper pack Painted Pretties. I used the blue and green one and selected part of the page to represent sky and grass.

I added a continuous border at the bottom using the daisy from Springtime Tapes. By carefully placing several together they can join together seamlessly.

I added the Mommy sheep and the little lamb from the Nativity set. I love the cute lamb and can't wait to see some in the field at the top of our road. I am very lucky that we live only 6 miles away from Birmingham city centre but we have many farm fields within walking distance of our house.

I used many of the elements from both Springity Spring and Signs of Spring. It is so much fun to combine your favourites from these sets ans they always go so well together.

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.
