I was asked to do a few projects that were kind of springy. Well, that is hard to think about when we still have a lot of snow on the ground here in Colorado still and will for months! So I kind of stretched the theme and used my sister's new baby (new and fresh like spring . . . right?) for the inspiration for my projects. I used the This and That Retro Fresh product line for both of my projects.

The first project I made was a scrapbook page with a cute picture of my sister and her baby boy. I ran into a problem with the "Super Duper" embellishment from the kit. The arrow was pointing to the right, but I needed it to point to the left. So I used the crop tool to crop the arrow from the right side and rotated it and put in on the left side—problem solved! I used the transparency tool a lot on this page to add subtle texture and interest to the page without taking away from the photo focal point.

My second project is a "stat cube" for her baby. I designed the six sides for the cube in MDS using all of his birth statistics: length, weight, time born, what town he was born in, his name, and birth date. Then I printed them out, cut them to size and adhered them to a 3" x 3" wood block. I used the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper for the background, muted a little with the opacity tool. I think this will be something fun that they can have for a long time.  

I think the This and That Retro Fresh product line is very versatile and am excited to use it for many projects in the future!
