April Inspiration

print designed by the talented Megan Carter

When it comes to unique color schemes and one-of-a-kind patterns, Megan Carter is where it's at! This particular piece spoke to me because of it's light and airy color scheme, and how it reminded me of spring. So use these colors as a springboard for your own ideas. Your project can feature florals, or you could take it in a whole other direction based on a similar color scheme. Enjoy the process and have fun!


 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on April 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge".

-Only one entry per person please.

-Customers & participants alike can peruse all of the links and absorb all of the amazing inspiration that will be shared!

-After you have made your way through the list, simply return to our forum and participate in all of the fun!

-You can chit chat with everyone in the Blog Hop forum! Take this time to praise your peers efforts, discuss anything new you might have learned and which projects really offered something unique!

Tonya Dirk

Tonya Dirk not only created an awesome background using floral dies, the glittered cutaway sentiment strip is also an amazing detail that is really inspiring me.


Marcia Hill

Marcia Hill put together a stunning birthday card based on the inspiration photo. I am really loving the way she stamped all of the florals and leaves, then cut away the bottom portion to expose the sentiment underneath.



Adele H. stepped out of her comfort zone with her gorgeous project. By combining lots of floral elements and pulling colors from the inspiration photo she was able to create a really beautiful background. The sentiment tucked into the corner is the perfect finishing touch.

Congratulations to the winners! Please email customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone who played along! There were some truly amazing projects submitted!

    BEAUTIFUL WORK, LADIES! I would join in on the forum, but I keep getting a notice that the connection ISN’T secure. 🙁 Can you fix that on your end? I would LOVE to be a part of all this fun!
