3x3 Square Sampler for Spring and Valentines

 

Did you catch my blog post last week with my Framed 3x3 Spring Sampler collage?   If you missed it, CLICK HERE.  I explained in that post how my Luv 2 Stamp group (demonstrators in my downline) did a swap. We each designed one square and stamped 9 of them, then swapped them with each other, so we'd have 9 different squares to make a collage with. 

The theme was spring/flowers or Valentine's artwork from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  We also worked with a color palette so that they'd all blend well, and each square had to be on a 3"x3" Blushing Bride cardstock piece.

Below are photos of all the individual squares created by the Luv 2 Stamp Group that I received in my swap.  Enjoy!

Occasions Catalog 3x3 Sampler Frame

 

Please enjoy my Spring Heart & Flower Framed Collage!! 

This fun project was a "swap" I did with my Luv 2 Stamp Group - about a dozen of us each made 9 "squares" measuring 3"x3" and everyone sent them to me.  I "swapped" them and sent each person back 9 squares.  Kind of fun, because everyone got 9 different squares! :)

 

3x3-occasions-catalog-hearts-flowers-swap-collage-1-luv-2-stamp-group

I created a fun spring home decor collage frame with my squares!

Our Instructions for the swap:  All squares needed to use either a heart/Valentine or flower theme from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  Each square needed to measure 3x3 and needed to be on Blushing Bride cardstock.  This ensures that they all look great in a collage.

 

3x3-occasions-catalog-hearts-flowers-swap-collage-luv-2-stamp-group

 

I used a 12"x 12" white frame from a craft store, and I tried out my framed collage sampler on 3 different backgrounds.. all of the paper backgrounds are from the Birthday Bouquet designer paper pack.. which one do you like best?
