Hoppy Easter

I love making Easter crafts. After Christmas, I’m ready to pack away all the red and green and bring out the spring colors. Easter crafts are the perfect way to brighten my mood when it’s still a little chilly and dreary outside.

I made a set of these sweet Easter bunny cards for all the little munchkins this year.

I used papers from the new Bo Bunny Soiree collection and some older My Mind’s Eye paper that I have in my stash.

I finished my last round of Easter cards. Here are just a couple of them. Again, I kept it simple and didn’t over-embellish.Vintage postcard images, stitching, and of course glitter adorn these.

I used up some of my paper scraps, too. The cards have all been mailed, so I can move on to the next project.

Easter Bonnet

I joined the ladies over at Bella Creations for a few challenges this month. The tag challenge was to use the provided image and make a tag. Here is the tag I made:

I used a couple of scraps of patterned paper with a spring style as the background. I matted the image on a scrap of vintage sheet music and embellised her hat with a couple of flowers. The rabbit is from an old Prima package – I saved him for just the right project. I made the title on my typewriter and added some pastel flowers.

There is still plenty of time to join in! Stop by and see what the Bellas are up to.

Hippity Hoppity

Easter’s on its way! I made up sweet cards for the nieces and nephew.

I printed a few vintage Easter postcards onto fabric and adhered each to a cardstock base. Then I cut an egg-shaped “window” from a piece of pastel fabric and adhered and sewed it on top of the fabric postcard.

Then I stitched a lace or seam binding ruffle around the opening and added a matching bow.

Now I need to buy some sweet treats for them and I’m all done!
