Here is my contribution to the April 2021 Spring Pixel Scrapper blog train. This kit comes with twelve papers. Six of them are 12″ x 12″ and the other six are 8.5″ x 11″ and are ready for printing. Both can be used in digital projects as seen in both figures 1 and 2 below. This kit also comes with 14 elements with soft blues, greens, yellows, and grays. The papers are all in jpg format. The elements are in png format with a sheet of printable graphics that is in jpg. All items in kit are high quality 300 dpi. To access this kit click here.
The theme for the kit was beachy, spring, garden, rainy days, and lemons. Below is the color palette. To see other kits from fellow Pixel Scrapper blog train collaborators click here.

This is the color palette.
figure 1. Splish Splash digital layout using the Pixel Scrapper April 2021 Blog Train kit
I used multiple elements from the Pixel Scrapper April 2021 Blog train kit in these two digital illustrations. I simply used Adobe Photoshop on my laptop to edit my layouts. Making digital scrapbook pages is a great way to store family pictures without taking up too much physical space. However, if you prefer hanging your images on your walls or or putting them in an album you can keep your beautiful photos and keepsakes by having them printed out.
figure 2. A Beautiful Spring Day
In this next layout I combined multiple shapes of circles and rectangles along with graphics from the kit to finish off the “Beautiful Spring Day” at the Beach.
Journal envelope and ephemera made using the Pixel Scrapper April 2021 Blog Train kit
I made this spring journal piece by printing out one of the 8.5″ x 11″ papers twice; One scrapbook paper on cardstock and the elements sheet on vellum. You can use an inkjet or laser printer on the vellum.
iced lemon ade made using glossy accents and vellum over cardstock.
I layered multiple elements of the same kind together, gluing the vellum overtop the cardstock images. I added glossy accents to some to give them more of a 3-D ice cube effect.

Spring Ephemera made from Multimedia Digital Crafts Freebie kits and other mixed media
I love to make journals and all sorts of scrapbooking elements to fill my books and folios. Today I decided to construct some out of various mediums including digital printables, die cut shapes, washi tape, and more.
Fresh Air Papers Kit
I began by printing out the Multimedia Crafts Digital FREEBIE kit called, “Fresh Air”. Using one of the Multimedia Craft Digital Etsy kits called, “2” x 3” Card and Envelope Template” I printed the card image over top of one of the digital freebie papers.
Printed out papers from “Fresh Air” digital Freebie kit and Multimedia crafts digital etsy kit called, “2” x 3″ Card and Envelope Template
This is the back of the unassembled envelope where two butterfly pieces were die cut out of the paper
Before assembling the envelope, I took two butterfly dies from the Tim Holtz stamp and die set, “French Flight”, placed them on the back of the envelope and die cut out those shapes, keeping the pieces to use later in this project.

I then cut a piece of acetate to fit the size of the back of the envelope and stitched the two together.

Once sewn, I distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink, “Vintage Photo,” and assembled the envelope according to the provided instructions that came with the card and envelope template. You can also watch the YouTube process video of assembling that template if needed.
Completed 2″ x 3″ card and envelope
To dress up both the card and envelope, I added some torn sudoku paper and some die cut elements from the Tim Holtz Ephemera Pack Field Notes. I also added a flower to the envelope to complete the look.
The next elements I made were 2 ½ inch circles I punched out from the purple and white striped paper. I lightly glued them to some muslin and stitched around the edges. (Go easy on me because I’m still working on my sewing skills).
I then created some envelopes from the pink and blue checkered paper. I folded them into the shape of the envelope, partially glued them together using washi tape, and sealed the envelope by stitching around the edges. I garnished them with the leftover butterfly die cut pieces from the first envelope and added some rub on transfer text to each.
For the last piece of ephemera, I made a tag. I took some of the scraps from the previous projects and created a collage. I stitched on and around the tag. I finalized it with an eyelet and some white mini rose trim.

Have you ever been in the process of making cards for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries and so forth from a prepacked card and envelope set and when you complete layering your card you realize it will not fit into your envelope? That has happened to me multiple times. It can get somewhat frustrating because you know that your oversized card is going to need an envelope to house it.
One way to fix that is to either make thin cards with very few layers, or if you are like me, and want lots of embellishments and things, you can find envelope templates to print out that are bigger than the size of the envelope that came with your kit.
Here is a freebie envelope template that is great for easel cards and more. I was originally going to make a pop-up card using an A2 size card (4″ x 5.5″) but when I added chipboard pieces, along with ribbon and other embellishments it would not fit into the envelope. I developed this one to house the plump card and it fit.
This kit comes with original scanned images of the envelope prototype that has my handwriting on it. I also cleaned up the image and turned it into a transparent file so that you can print the highlighted shape of the envelope onto pattern paper. Try this one out and see how it works with your beautiful creations. To access this freebie click here to download.
