Easter is another of those holidays that I have always loved for all the fun things there are to make and share. Got the idea for these candy bouquets from a catalog I got in the mail last year just before Halloween. The catalog showed very cute but very pricey bouquets of Halloween candies and I thought to myself, "I wanna try making one like that!" The sweet little lambies on the pails are from the Paper Dolls cart, their bodies were embossed with the cuttlebug swirls template to look like fleece and details on legs and face were chalked. Grass is from the Zooballo cart and tiny paper flowers are from Photocraft's All Natural Accents line. Easter goodies were taped onto bamboo barbeque sticks and arranged in styrofoam. One mailed to dd, one for my sweet niece, and one for dh to share at work.
Found the idea for these 9-square baskets at the cricut website. The pattern for these was shared on the message board by a super talented lady, Sue Nelson. She has a extensive gallery full of inspiration of all her beautiful cards and creations at Heart Prints. Used 9x9" chipboard covered with patterned paper to make these. Very quick and easy! Filled these with silly Easter goodies and mailed them off to dd and her bf.
Used the George cart and my new Doodlecharms cart to cut bunnies, baskets and eggs to make tags for my Easter baskets and candy bouquets.
Finally got a chance to try making these pull card pouches that I first saw a sample of at Photocraft back in January. I think the pull mechanism on this is the neatest thing...so simple, and yet it makes you wonder, "How the heck does it work?" Filled the pouches with bags of my favorite Cadbury Mini Eggs and an adorable little Lindt chocolate lambie. Peeking bunny from Doodlecharms & George carts, flower is a sizzlit die, and "Happy Easter" is Mickey Font welded with the help of Design Studio. Made several of these to share with special friends.And WhooHoo!!!! Take a look at these Easter goodies! Aren't they just precious? These darling mini decorated cookies were from a very special lady at dh's workplace. She always does an amazing job making everything she bakes into works of art. It must take an incredible amount of patience and time to make so many different colors of icing and to decorate all these little babies with such detail! Thank you so much! The Betty Crocker-Martha Stewart award goes to you!
