Hippity Hoppity Easter Is On It's Way!!

Hi Everyone!! I have been under the weather with pneumonia for the last month, so I tried to make some simple Easter projects while I have been recuperating! I hope you like them!

I found a sweet little bunny template on Pinterest, so I decided to make some Easter cards using gingham papers that are on the bias. I added a little bit of lace from Daiso along with some seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added some leaves that I punched out and a sweet ceramic flower that I found at Pretties By Alease. I printed out the "Happy Easter" on my computer.  I think they came out really cute!!

I also created some rosettes using Sizzix #658339 Brenda Walton Medallions Die.  I used some digital papers from MyGrafico - DBAIsabel Set #1 and #2. I topped the rosettes with a scalloped circle that I punched using EK Success 1" Scallop Punch along with some butterflies that I punched using Martha Stewart Medium Single Butterfly and the 3 in 1 Butterfly Punches. I added a Recollection Pearl to the center of the butterflies. I have been making some different rosettes lately. I think they are really cute to add to a card, treat bag or box. They also make a nice little handmade gift to put in Happy Mail!!
Thank you for stopping by my blog!! I hope you all have a wonderful Spring, a wonderful Easter!!
Big Hugs,

Crepe Paper Rosettes

Hi Everyone!! I was watching some haul videos on Youtube and some of the girls had found crepe paper rosettes from Maggie Holmes at Tuesday Morning. The Tuesday Morning near me didn't have any, so I decided to try to make some. I used some crepe paper from Melissa Frances that I purchased several years ago. I cut the crepe paper into 1" x 11 1/2" strips and gathered the long edges with a running stitch to form the circles. I added some gold glitter paper from Recollections to the centers along with some scraps from my stash. I also printed the sayings and cut them into little banners. I love how they came out and can't wait to add them to my projects!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!! Have a wonderful day!!

Heart Rosettes

Hi Everyone!! I would like to share with you some heart rosettes that I created using Nellie Snellen Small Heart Die - NFD011. Instead of stitching the inside edge of the die cuts like the instructions suggested to form the hearts, I formed them on a silicone craft mat from Stampin Up and hot glued the centers to hold them together. I just love using the silicone craft mat when creating rosettes. It makes it so much easier!!        I added some glittered foam heart stickers from the Dollar Tree to the centers along with some cute heart embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The hearts are approximately 1 1/2" x 1 1/2", which is a nice size     to add to a card or a treat bag.  I think they came out so cute!!!
