This Month's Guest Hoppers are:
he March's Blog Hop is a bit of challenge, I do not typically make many Easter projects. In my house we have Easter baskets for the kids and we color eggs. But, I usually don't have the need to give gifts or cards. With that said, I do not own a lot of Easter stamps. Sometimes I good challenge is all I need to get motivated to think outside of my comfort and get more creative.
The card I chose to make uses all Stampin Up products.
This card somewhat evolved while I was creating, I have added, removed and changed this along the way! I am happy with the results. I hope you enjoyed it.
The stamped images are from the Sale-a-bration Avant Garden and All God's Grace.
I kept the cardbase Whisper White and I used 2 sheets of DSP from the Serene Scenery paper stack. I cut out an oval on the front of the card using the Stitched Frameleits and did the same to the DSP, making sure it lines up.
I adhere another piece of DSP on the inside, I added the oval left over and adding the cross on top. As you can see from the pictures below I stamped and colored in many flowers before fussy cutting them out. I arranged them like a bouquet overhanging the over cut out!
I added Gold Wink of Stella around the edges of the cross and in the blank spaces between the flowers and leaves. Also on the cross I added strands of gold floss.
My project is something that I had in the works or awhile. I was an avid scrapbooker before kids and that slowly dwindled after each child was born. I've mostly worked on digital as its a little accessible. I haven't dabble in Project Life, frankly because I have so much stuff on hand. But I have decided to try to incorporate a little more traditional scrapbooking back into my crafting.
Most of the page was designed to use the fringe scissors and the Spring image that I printed and cut with my Cricut image. Such a long time ago.
So, I apologize the lighting in my basement is a little off. The colors I used was Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.
The words has sprung, was printed from my printer and I used a circle punch to cut them out, The banner was cut out using a Cricut cartridge called Pretty Pennants.
The Whisper White was cut using a Creative Memories Cutting template. The grass on the bottom was used but cutting the edges with the Fringe Scissors. I added some bakers twine and rhinestones to finish the pages off.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the projects I shared with you. Leave a comment and I will make sure to choose a winner of some blog candy!!!

I purchased the Here's to Cheers stamp set & Cheerful Tags framelits bundle awhile back and finally got around to using it. I think at first glance, being in the Stampin Up! Holiday Catalog, we think it is a set that needs to be used during the holidays. But that is not the case!!! It's a very versatile set for gift giving, whether your giving a baked good or a bottle of wine, it all boils down to the colors and presentation.
My card & project for this month's blog hop is for the holidays. All products used are from Stampin' Up! I decided to make a little gift set that all goes together or can be broken out into separate gifts if necessary. But the intent is to give it together. Perfect for a co-worker, friend/family, pretty much anyone! It's perfect as a hostess gift too! A nice gift of candles and wine. A perfect to unwind during all the holiday stress.
I paired the Here's to Cheers bundle with the Perfect Pines suite. I just love the DSP! So festive. But again a versatile pack of paper that doesn't need to be all about the holidays. Since the paper is double-sided, and only a few sheets have gift-giving on them, the paper is perfect to use for winter gifts, treats or cards! And the COLORS are fabulous.
The main colors I used are Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler!!!
So for the card, it is fairly simple to assemble. Cutting out all the pines was time consuming but I used the Diebrush and that helped out a bit. I used Cherry Cobbler as my card base and layered DSP with Emerald Envy and Whisper White. I think the only thing I would change is a different patterned DSP. The one I choice gets covered to much. I cut all the pines using Emerald Envy and the berries with Cherry Cobbler. I stamped a set of pines onto the whisper white with Emerald Envy, greeting is in Cherry Cobbler. I used the fine-point pen adhesive to assemble that way I only put the adhesive at the tips to let the rest hang!
I used Gold and Silver Foil as accents to both sets of tags. I wanted them to pop!
For the bottle tags, I used a piece of DSP behind the foil diecut to add a little more color.
For the folding tags with the "Just spreading Cheer this Christmas, I embossed the greetings in Gold and Silver. I used the circles that are left over from the bottle tags. So no extra punching there.
The framelits are really easy to use and assemble. It looks like alot, but honestly, once you get a system/assembly going they come together fairly easily.
I made 8 tags (2 sets of four) you could certainly split this set up. But since I am doing a gift set, I needed something to put the tags in.
I was going to just leave the tags in a cello bag and tie with a ribbon, but I felt it was missing something. So I quickly made a giftbag/box using the Giftbag Punchboard. I followed the directions to make a medium bag, I used a piece of DSP that measured 7w X 11L. I did not punch holes at the top. I wanted it to look more like the box than a bag. I had cut out a lot of pines, berries and pinecones while I was making the cards & tags. So I incorporated them on the box. Very cute!!
And the last project for today is this super adorable candle jar! The jar was truly my favorite from this whole set. I have alot of canning jars on hand from gift giving projects. And this jar style was perfect.
I decorated the jar very similar to the gift bag above. I kept the gold lid as is. I felt it tied in perfectly with the Gold and Silver foil. I punched a 2" circle using the same DSP that I used on the card, just tonadd a little something to the lid. The jar fits 6 PartyLite tealights perfectly. I added 3 different scents for the holidays. It smells sooo good when you take the lid off. Now if you or someone your giving this to is not into candles, fill the jar with a scrub or holiday kisses, or whatever you prefer!
It looks so pretty when I lit the candle and it's glowing!!
Don't you just love how when you start a project and you're not quite sure how it's going to look when it is done! And then you end with such a WOW factor!!! That's how I felt after I finished and grouped it all together for the picture!!
I really hope you like what you saw!!

I recently watched a tutorial video by Sam Donaldson at Pootles Papercraft. I had bought these Hershey Chocolate Eggs and I had no idea what to do with them, besides eat them. So after viewing Sam's video, I decided why recreate the wheel? These could be cute little treats to give teacher to wish them a Happy Easter.
Sam was able to fit 12 chocolate eggs in her sample. I was only able to fit 10, the Hershey eggs are probably a bit bigger.
Since the bag I had only had 3 different colors. I chose Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Cucumber Crush. I love how bright and vivid the colors are on the Whisper White cardstock. I used the flourish stamp from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Stamp and Whisper White Cotton Ribbon.
The 2 bags I had did not have an even amount of eggs per color. So, I made 2 of each color. I think I have enough left that I can make 2 more in Cucumber Crush and 1 in Melon Mambo. Just have decided if I need to make more just yet.
You can view Sam's YouTube tutorial on how to make the box below. Super Easy!!!
Happy Easter and Happy Stampin
