Easter Egg Hunt Blog Hop Day 3

Today I am showing off a page that I made using some Treasure Box Design cuts.  The actual placement of the cuts was borrowed from a layout made by Designs on Cloud 9.  I used different papers and a bit of a different layout but the way the piecings were placed on the pages is very similar.

The paper pack used was the Sweetheart line by Close To My Heart.


Now for eggs.  I didn't have any in this layout so I thought I would put it in the following picture.  Enjoy.. mmm chocolate.


Continue down the page until you see all of my blog postings for his hop.  Count all the eggs and add it to the total of eggs for all the hops.  There is a grand prize.

Not only am I an avid scrapbooker and paper crafter but I am also a creative team member for Creative Kuts.  On Thursday's we post a new project using a Creative Kuts paper piecing project.  This week I made an Easter Basket using the Color Me Happy kuts set. You can find the pattern for the basket at http://www.allfreecrafts.com/easter/paper-basket.shtml

Here is my project from a few different angles. 

This is the view from the front of the basket.

The Easter bunny has been here and left some eggs on our blogs. Count the eggs on each blog (just for the 3 day hop) follow us on faceook and each blog and leave a sweet comment on all blogs. The one closest to the correct number of eggs will win a $20 gift coupon to your favorite svg file company. Leave your guess on the Super Paper Diva facebook page on friday evening.

Todays project are a few paper piecings that I put together.  These are the My Chubby Bunnies purchased from My Scrap Chick.  They were so much fun that I bought the patterns, put the bunnies together and now I have no idea what to do with them.  If you could post an idea I would love to hear it.

Creative Kuts Project

I had a page I worked on a while ago.  It was pictures of me when I was a child at a dance recitle.  I had used a patter set from Cricut and I never really liked the way it turned out.  See for yourself.



 Well I asked my friend at Creative Kuts if they had  a dance girl and they created "Ballerina Bella".  So I redid the girl.  Here she is.


I think it looks much better. :)

Creative Kuts Kuttin Up Tuesday Challenge

Today for the Creative Kuts Design Team we had to make a card using a paper piecing.  I made this card using "Hello Spring". The paper line I used is Miracle from Close to My Heart.  I used my punch to do the edge and I used some pop up dots on the butterflies.  I doubled over my flowers to give them a 3D look.

Remember that if you create a project using our Tuesday Design Challenge and you post it on the Creative Kuts Facebook page, you have a chance to win an Itty Bitty Kuts or your choice.  This happens every week so keep checking back. 

If you check out the Creative Kuts website they are having a TWO-Spectacular sale.  They have released 15 new images and they are all on sale from Tuesday April 12th until Wednesday April 13th.

Saturday Creative Kuts Design Team Creation

Today I did a two page layout using the Baby Boy pack from DCWV and the Oh Baby's First pattern set from Creative Cuts.  This is a page of my son's first day of life.  The idea behind the layout is that this is the firsts of many firsts.

Creative Kuts Thursday File

For my Thursday file this week I decided that I would use the Bible with Flower file that Creative Kuts had up for free.  Easter is coming and often people forget that it is a religious holiday.  In my family Easter is bigger than Christmas although I like Christmas a lot too.

I made this card using a few funky paper packs I picked up at the dollar store.  I always forget I have them.  The gold, white, purple and dark blue are all specialty papers.  Even the Easter Blessings is a paper from these packs.  You have to love the dollar store.

I borrowed a friend Cuttle Bug a long time ago and the other day I finally bought a folder.  I used it for the purple to give it a textured look.  The ribbon was tied using a trick I learned.  If you make a loop and tie a nice knot with both loose ends, you can cut the loop in the middle and it looks like one ribbon with a knot in it.  I also did a bit of stamping up the one side with a stamp from the CTMH Wing's Workshop on the Go stamp set.

Well I hope you enjoy.

Creative Kuts Kuttin Up Tuesday Design Team Challenge

This week our challenge was to alter an item we found at the dollar store.  I picked up this wood mounted wall plaque and used it to make a cute wall hanging for a babies bedroom.  I used the Sweet Dreams Babies pattern set for the sleeping baby and the writing is also a pattern set from Creative Cuts it is the A Baby wall art pattern.

I painted the background with blue and white acrylic paints.  Then I used Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to give it a bit of shine.  I put little yellow dots to look like stars.  I painted the edge in Silver Acrylic paint.

Boys Boys Boys - Echo Park Paper

I do a lot of scrapping with certain papers.  Of course I use a lot of Close to My Heart paper but its not just because I sell the stuff I really love their papers.  I also use a TON of BoBunny paper.  My new favorite paper line is Echo Park.  I recently bought their WinterTime line and the Little Boy line.  I also JUST got their SummerTime line from last year.  Here are two layouts I created with the Little Boy paper.
