Welcome to LoveBug Creations Spring Celebrations 
New Release and Blog Hop!!

If you have floated over from Dawn Mercedes, then you are on the right path, but if you stumbled upon our hop and want to start with our blog hostesses, then click over to

Spring is a time for Easter and Mother's Day events but it also signals weddings, graduations, family reunions, and more.  LoveBug Creations has some new awesome products to unveil today for your spring celebrations.

  So do you want to add something special to your handmade projects?? If so, consider these new springtime collections for your crafting arsenal of rumple ribbon delights:




And for something different, we are releasing the beautiful Mama's Roses.  
Each rose is hand-formed and hand-dyed; each has dimensions of  2"x 2" and can be used as is or inked, painted, stickled, and more - your imagination can provide lots of possibilities for these beauties - and they are feather-light so you can create lots of projects from layouts to cards to tags to mixed media creations to 3-D creations and more and not feel there's an anchor on your project, weighing it down!
 
And if that isn't enough... We've got 4 NEW Mama's Mesh Colors: Kraft, Ivory, Light Blue & Light Pink!!!
Also Mama's Mesh is now being offered to buy by the yard as opposed to in collections!
 
So settle back as we take you on a tour of spring celebrations and invite you to visit our LBC ONLINE STORE

I created this one page layout featuring LBC's new Garden Green!! It's gorgeous!! And just the perfect way to make my Easter Bunny all decked out for Spring!


This layout also features a cute SVG file from Creative Kuts. I love the fact that all I need to do is insert my photos! YAY!

Not us gals.........so grab your favorite beverage and settle back for some crafting inspiration 
for just the right touch of class
 
I created a sweet card featuring the Little Chicks Element Collection from Fleurette Bloom Designs. These chick are just so sweet. They were super easy to cut out with my Cameo and even come with an Easter Bonnet.
The Pennant design on the left was created using KiwiLanes templates and I couldn't leave off some super yummy Simply White Rumple Ribbon from LoveBug Creations. The Simply white works on just about anything I can create. Paired up with some cute paper from Jillibean Designs, a felt flower and some bling this card is all dressed for our Easter Blessings!
