Marion Smith Designs & Petaloo Spring Blog Hop Day 1!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 1 of fantastic floral inspiration. With the extended winter weather we've been experiencing as of late Petaloo and Marion Smith Designs have teamed up to bring you a little spring inspiration. Hopefully this will force winter into hibernation and spring will bloom into season!

Both design teams have partnered in hopes of providing a very warm reception to the spring weather we have all been hoping for.  
We will be using new collections from both brands to highlight the versatility and creativity of the products used to create the design teams' projects. 

After you take a browse through our design team member's blogs make sure you hop on over to the Petaloo blog. The inspiration doesn't stop here. There is more fun, and more inspiration over there. 

Also don't forget to comment and subscribe to our blogs as we will be picking a few lucky subscribers to win some of our brand new products! Enjoy!

  41. Maggie, that's a beautiful layout with a beautiful young lady. The flowers are perfect, almost as if they are designed to go with the hat. I love how you have the torn paper framing it all. Sarah's journal is gorgeous. I love the addition of the tags. The pinks and the greens with a little touch of tan goes together so wonderfully. Thank you for another great blog hop!

  42. I love seeing these in action, it's so hard to tell what they look like from a picture of a package on the internet. Definitely going to add Petaloo to my cart. Marion's papers are a bit hard to find, but I do purchase her downloadable products. Love her style.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love, love, love these papers....so vintage and shabby but fresh and wonderful, too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Really beautiful projects! The papers and the flowers really compliment each other and round out the design.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Love, love, love that LO...no I take that back. It's too pretty to just be a LO. That deserves to be framed in a shadow box and hung up to be admired all the time. It's so beautiful!
    And the card. I can almost smell the wild roses in the meadow down by the river where I grew up. They are so delicate and sweet.
    Great work! Can't wait to check out the rest of the designer's.
    Thank you for sharing such lovely inspiration! :)
