Pink or Blue bunnies? Doesn't really matter they are both so adorable. Here is the "boy" version of the basket.
This video is a bit long but sometimes figuring out how all the layers go together can be challenging, right? Hopefully, this will help you if this is something you're struggling with.
Crafting for Spring is one of my favorite seasons. The colors are bright and cheerful and the possibilities of the crafts you can create are endless. Here is the first of the series I'm doing for Spring Cards, Crafts and Decorations.
I put 12 of the Easter Baskets in my store and they all sold within 2 days. Plus I have another order to fill that I'm working on today. They're just adorable...thanks to the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more 2 cartridge and Simply Charmed I was able to put this all together.
Thanks for watching and I hope you have a Sun Shiny Day!
Good morning all you crafty crafters! With St. Patrick's Day on Sunday it couldn't be a better time to create a project with that theme in mind. Now, Just-A-Scrappin has come up with a fun challenge this week "Make a St. Patrick's Day themed Lay out, card or project for your favorite male. Use brads." Well, here's what I came up with.
Here's how it's created:
5 1/2 x 4 green Recollections card stock for the base
5 1/4 x 3 3/4 white Colorbok (layer 1)
5 x 3 1/2 black Colorbok (layer 2). This was embossed with a Sizzix Folder.
3 1/2 inch Heart using Recollection Four Leave Clover paper, Coordinations Green Glitter card stock and Calligraphy Cricut Cartridge.
2 inch Tag using Calligraphy Cartridge
2 gold Recollection brads
"Fun and Games" stamp set from Mary @ cardztv.blogspot.com (stampztv.blogspot.com)
Colorbok White card stock (Walmart)
Coordinations green glitter card stock (JoAnns)
Coordinations orange, black, green, yellow card stock
Design Studio plaid stamp
StazOn Forest Green ink
Inkadinkado blending chalk
Party City Celephane Party bags
Party City Gold Chocolate
How to do the Cricut cuts:
Leprechaun 1: Cut at 3 inches using Simply Charmed (pg.32).
Box: Cut at 10 inches using Plantin Schoolbook (pg. 80) tall ball feature.
4 leaf clover: Cut at 1 inch using Designer's Calendar (pg.30) shadow feature.
Just A Few Notes:
Stamp the front of the box before you put it together.
Use ScorTape instead of glue.
I bought a bag of chocolate coins at Party City ($1.00 each) and put it in a celephane bag then inside the treat box. Oh, I also snuck in a few Girl Scout Cookies.
Thank you all for stopping by and if you have any other questions just leave a comment and I'll get back to you!
My card for the Just-A-Scrappin Design team challenge this week was one that I had made last year for Mother's Day. I had just bought my Sew Easy from HSN and had to try it. This stitch is a simple one but it looks so cute on the card. I do have a sewing maching but it's busy collecting dust under my desk right now. My mom gave it to me years ago and I just haven't taken the time to get it out and figure out how it works. Some day...
Bazzill Gold card stock .
Layer 1 ~ K & Co. (Susan Winget design) paper pack
Recollections ~ Mum
Recollections ~ button brad
Shrinky Dink with Hero Arts "Happy Mother's Day" stamp
Sew Easy ~ with gold thread
Martha Stewart ~ punch
Fiskars Scallop Punch
StazOn Black ink
Cut the card base at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
K & Co. layer 1 5 1/4 x 4
Cut a 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 of paper from the back side of K&Co.
Use the Martha Stewart punch only on one side
Use th Sew Easy to stitch and sew all the way across.
Use the 1 inch Fiskars scallop punch on a piece of shrinky dink. Stamp the sentiment, punch a small hole at the top and use your heat embosser to shrink it down. Insert the brad.
Use ScorTape to adhere the flower.
My Craft Spot has a challenge today that I think this card might be a good one. So, here it is.
Colorbok card stock (Walmart) for the card base and the white (Layer 3)
DCWV Sweet Treats (Stripped Layer 1)
DCWV Shimmer (Pink Layer 2)
Fiskars 2 inch scallop punch
Quick Cards Birthday Cake and Happy Birthday stamp
Ribbon (from Remember When Scrapbook)
Momento Black Ink
Momento Pink Ink
EK Success Scallop punch
Gelly Roll pens
The card base was cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
The stripped layer was cut at 5 x 3 3/4
The pink shimmer paper (layer 2) was cut at 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
The white (layer 3) was cut at 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.
I place a border from the scallop punch near the bottom cut at 1 inch by 5 1/2.
On top of that layer I place the pink and green ribbon.
I then stamped the cake and colored it with Gelly Roll pens (white, orange, green, pink)
I stamped the senitment on a scallop punch and inked the edges then coloring in the words with the gelly roll pen.
The last addition was using a pink frost Pearl pen and putting a dot on each corner of the white paper. Keep in mind this takes a while to dry.
Thanks so much for stopping by. If you have any questions just leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
For several months now, I've been fascinated by the projects that the design team from Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog puts out. Just recently, they offered a design team call. I waited anxiously and found out yesterday I was chosen to be on the team along with several other crafty and talented ladies! This is so exciting for me. Now, I can share my Cricut projects and I'll get to do the Thursday tutorial!
Thank you so much for adding me to your fantastic...or I should say....Fantabulous Design Team. Now, let's to create!
