Spring Supplies

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Supplies are the things that help us in creating what we all create. They are essentially the backbone of our creations. Here at CIJ we want to know all about your Spring Supplies.

Do you have supplies that make you think of spring? Do your supplies come in spring colors? What can you tell us about them? What are they good for? What makes them special and so on?

Lisajoy Sachs from saxdsign says supplies is what I do!! As a gem dealer and jeweler I have noticed a serious trend this year and that is TOURMALINE!!! So far this year, I have sold more Tourmaline than any other gemstone. Here is a really great example of one of the over the top simply gorgeous pair of Watermelon tourmaline Gemstones that can be used in a lovely design. I have many different colors and designs to choose from in my shop, and continue to list more and more items daily. One of the most popular this year is Indicolite Tourmaline which is on of the most rare colors for tourmaline BLUE.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital said of course, spring makes me think of flowers! One of the most beautiful things about a beautiful season! This set of digital papers has floral designs as well as dots and stripes. The colors are purple, lavender and mint – perfect for spring bulbs. The set would be good for scrap booking and spring card making.

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese states that spring is my most favourite time of the year! I love the flowers especially and the warmer weather. I made this paper pack with spring in mind. I included flowers, butterflies and lovely spring themed papers ready to use for craft projects, snail mail, scrapbooking, journaling. I included bright colours which make me think of Spring!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says I love spring pastels, and the art and craft projects that result when parents and kids, grandparents and grandchildren, teachers and students, sit around a table and create! Our hand punched hearts in our supply shop, Stock Lane Paper, have so many uses. Using recycled paper, these colorful hearts have the right amount of pastel with just a touch of glitter to add sparkle to your best project ever.

Judith Messenger from FabriArts said when I think of spring, I think of all the leaves and flowers that start to bloom.

Silken Chenille thread is great for creating those leaves and flowers in thread. It’s got lots of texture, so can really make those flowers stand out from your embroidered piece! Use it for spider web roses, outlining wool applique pieces with straight stitches or for straight stitches on linen or needlepoint canvas.

Agnes Keh from DeStashAttic said spring makes me think of leaves and flowers too.

These very rare vintage reverse carved painted floral sew on beads are perfect for spring! They can be sewed onto fabrics to make unique bags and purses or decorate any sewing projects, but I used them to make lovely jewelry! As they came with front drilled holes on top and button, great as connector beads!

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeSupplies said I love Spring – it is the time for regrowth and new warmth after months of dormancy.

These clear flower beads are very ‘Spring’ and are great because they are transparent, so that whatever spring colour you thread through them will be visible! How Springy is that!!
