Spring Celebrations New Release and Blog Hop


Welcome to LoveBug Creations Spring Celebrations 
New Release and Blog Hop!!

Spring is a time for Easter and Mother's Day events but it also signals weddings, graduations, family reunions, and more.  LoveBug Creations has some new awesome products to unveil today for your spring celebrations.

  So do you want to add something special to your handmade projects?? If so, consider these new springtime collections for your crafting arsenal of rumple ribbon delights:

Peach Blossom, Buttercup, Dahlia

Garden Green, Spring Lilac, Blue Bells

And for something different, we are releasing the beautiful Mama's Roses.  
Each rose is hand-formed and hand-dyed; each has dimensions of  2"x 2" and can be used as is or inked, painted, stickled, and more - your imagination can provide lots of possibilities for these beauties - and they are feather-light so you can create lots of projects from layouts to cards to tags to mixed media creations to 3-D creations and more and not feel there's an anchor on your project, weighing it down!

And if that isn't enough... We've got 4 NEW Mama's Mesh Colors: Kraft, Ivory, Light Blue & Light Pink!!!
Also Mama's Mesh is now being offered to buy by the yard as opposed to in collections! Awesome!

So settle back as we take you on a tour of spring celebrations and invite you to visit our LBC ONLINE STORE

Mama LoveBug is up first to share several wedding tags (The Tag, The New Greeting Card); yesterday I shared several wedding tags in our co-hop with Fleurette Bloom so I was in the mood to continue with that theme for our spring celebrations. Couldn't you see these framed as a lovely treasure for a wedding gift or using the smaller tag below, placing it on a wedding plate or on an easel next to the guest book.......the possibilities are endless!
