Now, many of you know that I am a colorer.. colorist? colorizer? er.. I love to color stamped images ;). Give me a beautiful rose, or a bunch of grapes, or a lily, or even a happy little octopus, and I can make it shine. However, though I hate to admit it, I have never really made a scrapbook page. It's one of those hobbies that I just haven't gotten into before, and right now, I'm wondering why not?!!?

Beautiful Blooming Branches Project Ideas

Do you live somewhere near flowering trees? One of the things I love about early springtime is visiting my mom and seeing all the fruit trees in bloom. She lives in central Washington which is covered in apple, cherry, pear and peach orchards. This month's Blooming Branches stamps and dies are based on a picture of a flowering apple tree, but you can color this stamp set to look like nearly any flowering tree. Check out these gorgeous cards to get some ideas about how to make some beautiful cards of your own!
