Scrappin' Easter

Hey Everyone - Hope you had a good weekend. I'm sure you took a bunch of photos for Easter and I have a layout to share with you if you are looking for some scrapping ideas.

(give it a click for a closeup view)

I used the title from this Miss Kate Cuttables File entitled: Easter Borders

The flowers and eggs are from the file entitled: Easter Egg with Flowers
I modified it slightly an did not use all the layers supplied in the file.

Here is a closeup of one of the flowers:

There’s a challenge over on the Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria FB Page - go check it out and post before 4/27!

Thanks for stopping by today - have a great week!

Spring Table Runner

Well I have a lot of "Firsts" to share with you today. 
I'm sharing a Spring Table Runner today - it’s the first project I created with fabric I cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 
It’s also my first table runner. I've only used my sewing machine to sew on scrapbook layouts.

I used Miss Kate Cuttable files and cut the SVGs on my Cameo. Check out all the details here.

Here is where the other "first" comes into play...I created my first how to video.
Let’s just say it was a learning experience and I have some ideas on how to improve future videos.
Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Here are a few other photos of my table runner.
If you are an expert seamstress and have any tips - Please leave me a comment!

 Please stop over to the Miss Kate Cuttables Blog and don’t forget to grab the freebie of the day!
Thanks for stopping by today.

Easter Treats

Two blog posts in two days! Wishing everyone a Happy Easter. Seems like lately I've been speed crafting. I remember back when I went to art school I'd sometimes procrastinate and work all night to get a project done. Well now in my life I'm not procrastinating I'm just busy!

Here are my Easter Treats created in about an hour (Easter Morning):

I cut the One Piece Egg Basket from the Easter Treats SVG Kit from Fleurette Bloom.
My patterned paper from Echo Park was rather thin paper so I cut the Egg Basket from sold card stock and cut my patterned paper in an oval shape and applied to the sold card stock.

I added some ribbon and also cut the tag from the same kit. I just hand lettered the tags.

Here is a look at the entire kit - It’s fabulous for Easter and Spring Projects.

It’s a sunny day where I live - hope it’s nice where you are.

Happy Easter Peeps!

Hello Everyone! Hope you have having a fantastic Easter weekend. I had a great time planning my son’s 4th grade Spring Party yesterday. When planning a party I like to work with a theme and our theme was a peep party. The little bunny peeps are so popular now.

 For my projects I used the Peeps Bunnies file from Fleurette Bloom.

I used the file to create the party bags. I printed them out on 8.5" x 11" paper and added to bag.
I did the peeps in different colors.

For the craft I picked up cups at the Dollar Tree.

 I cut the peep file out of vinyl on my Cameo and also cut dots in various colors.
I added transfer tape to the bunnies and the kids did a great job applying the peeps to the cups.
I took cloths for the kids to hold the cups in place.

The dots did not require the transfer tape.

 Here is my Tim with his finished cup. The kids loved the craft.


Here’s a look at the game and snack:

 Last but not least I made myself a shirt for the party. Here’s a Pre-Party Selfie :)

I took the Silhouette Fusible Fabric Stabilizer and ironed on to the cotton fabric.

Keep the white backer on and place it face down on the mat. 
I cut the peep file from Fleurette Bloom and ironed on to the shirt.
I also cut the wording and bunny outline in the silver heat transfer material.

I used the offest and internal offset to create the outline of the peeps.

Thanks for stopping by today - Hope you liked my peep party projects!
Have a Happy Easter!
