Eggstra Spectacular Treat Holder

Hey Stampers,

Thought I would stop by and share the fun treats for my Easter table this year ! I got this awesome idea from Sandi MacIver. She created these adorable little treat holders that she called Egg Crates. Click on over to her blog to see the video on how to make them yourself !! Take a look at my fun take, using the Eggstra Spectacular and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets !!

Aren’t they great ?? I used lots of fun Eastery colors - Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Crisp Cantaloupe. Love those colors together !! Here is a close up of my fav combo of Pool Party and Blushing Bride:

How easy were these to make !! They hold a Cadbury Cream Egg just PERFECTLY ! And I love the little bunny with his Rhinestone tail, don’t you ?? And the splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge set add such great interest to the holder itself. I just love them !! Yet another fun project proving how essential the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch is, right ??

Well thats it for me today - why don’t you try to make some of these for your Easter table ?!? Have a blessed Easter and Happy Stamping !!

Too Kind Easter Treat

Hey Stampers,

Easter is this weekend, so I will be showing a couple fun Easter projects this week ! The one I am sharing with you today is a sweet treat I made for my son’s babysitter. I love how it turned out, take a look !!

Doesn't that look cute ?? I made this super easy and yummy Easter Marshmallow Bark, filled up a large mason jar and decorated it ! Very easy way to give a Easter gift. The fabric covering the mason jar is retired SU Twitterpated fabric, tied with (also retired) Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon. See this next pic for a close up of the tag.

One of my favourite flower sets in the Annual Catalogue is the Too Kind set. Isn’t it beautiful on this tag ? The Chalk Talk framelit also layers so great with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Adorable ! 

Thats it for me today - thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping !!

Heartfelt Easter Banner

Hey Stampers,

I had a couple free minutes yesterday (and yes that is ALL the time this cute project took) so I decided to make a cute easter banner using the Heartfelt Banner Kit that I earned for FREE during Saleabration ! I am one of those people that do decorate their house for Easter - complete with a little “bunny village” that I put on my mantle in the living room ! I thought that this fun banner would look just darling underneath it - what do you think ??

Is that ca-ute or what ?? The sample pic that came with it showed attaching your own photos to the banner, but I used my Cricut to cut out the word Easter with my Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Coastal Cabana cardstock. Then I stamped them for some interest with a tiny heart stamp (from the SAB set Banner Blast), a polkadot stamp (from the Perfect Pennants set) and the Chevron background stamp. They turned out SO awesome !!

Here’s a little close up to show you some of the detail. I thought it needed a little bling (doesn’t’ everything ??) so I added some Silver Glimmer paper hearts and butterflies. LOVE this fun and quick project !! 

Thanks so much for dropping by today - why don’t you make something beautiful for your house today !! Happy Stamping !!
