It’s a Vine of the Times With These Spring Scrapbook Projects

They’re nature’s finest organic concealers (and have been known to beautifully cover an unsightly fence with trailing greenery and flowers). They offer shade for patios and screen your porch for privacy. They sculpt and design themselves to enhance trellises, pergolas or other architectural elements of a home. They’re vines! And if you’re looking to prune a pretty presence onto your next projects, then combine the Climbing Vine Chain Border Maker Cartridge with the Spring Cottage collection for a fresh, new take! Here’s a garden of great spring scrapbook projects — a DIY spring card and two spring scrapbook borders!
