Spring Fun With Felt!

What a simply gorgeous week it has been so far. I absolutely love spring and with all my flowers and crabapple trees budding, I am in spring heaven! Plus, last year for my birthday (summer), I bought and planted a red bud tree. This year, even though it's only six feet tall, it has red and pink all over it and I am ecstatic! You never know through the wind and winter snow if something new like that will make it, but it did! Yay!

Today I am sharing a sneek peek of the beautiful new felt that will be available April 1 at Stamp School/A Walk Down Memory Lane. Honestly, this felt is the softest and most beautiful felt I have ever felt! haha! 

Felt:
Soft to the touch yet sturdy, Stamp School felt is a medium-weight 100% merino wool, imported from Holland.  Be forewarned, once you craft with it you'll have a hard time ever going back to a blend or acrylic.  Approximately 14oz. per linear yard (36x72 inches) and 1mm thick, almost 1/16 inch.  Our felt is not flammable, and safe for babies and children. 

Such scrumptious colors for spring: Banana Split, Grapesicle, Spearmint and Bubblegum! I also added a square of Sno Cone felt. The sentiment is from one of the new April stamp set releases: Women In My Life.
So many wonderful sentiments for mothers and friends!
I stamped my sentiment in Grape Jelly ink on Whip Cream cardstock and then cut out with a Spellbinders pennant die. You can see the beautiful soft texture of the felt in this close-up. ALL new April releases will be available April 1 at A Walk Down Memory Lane. Just type in Stamp School in the search bar, and you can see all there is that you need :)
