Easter Candy Jar

Here's another project that I made for the DT challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  I altered a Prego bottle, and since it's Easter, I made the bottle an Easter hat. :-D  Here's the tutorial for it that I tweaked a little bit:

I used paper and stickers from Basic Grey's Lemonade 12x12 paper pack, added Prima flowers and some Basic Grey buttons for the flower centers.  The jar is filled with Easter mini Reese cups. ;-)

Watch out for more Easter projects!  Stay tuned...

Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments Easter Banner

Easter is almost here!  Sarah, our DT sister wanted us to make "anything but a card for Easter".  I had some little projects for Easter and this is one of them.  I used paper from Graphic 45, DCWV for the base and frames. I cut this banner at 5" using the Pretty Pennants Cricut cartidge.  The frames were cut using Spellbinders and embossed using the Plum Blossoms Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The lace is from our DT sister Charlotte.

Once Upon A Springtime Shadowbox Book

Raquel, our DT sister at My Sheri Crafts is the hostess for our "Celebrate Spring" challenge, and the requisite is to include spring flowers in the project.  Spring is everywhere here in sunny AZ and the beautiful weather inspired me to alter a Tim Holtz Shadowbox Book using Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime paper pack.  I fussy cut a lot of images from the paper pack to decorate the cover and fill up the compartments.  The aqua rosette ribbon and the pearl button are from Webster's Pages.  I inked some wooden flourishes from Melissa Frances, added roses from Prima and Recollections, leaves punched out using Martha Stewart's Branch punch, ecru ribbon from the Paper Studio, pearls from The Paper Studio, pop dots and of course, a lot of Stickles.

Art Nouveau Triptych

It's my turn once again to host our biweekly challenge at My Sheri Crafts and since March 13 is Jewel Day, our challenge is all about "Blingin' It On!"

I made a triptych using the Art Nouveau cartridge from Cricut.  The ladies were cut at 9" and the daffodils at 2 1/2".  I made a background using the Ornamental Iron Cricut cartridge, cutting the gates at 11 1/2".  The corners were cut at 2" using the Story Book cartridge.  The hinges were from the Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge, cut at 2". I used paper from Basic Grey's Curio paper pack and Amanda Blu.  I drew on the ladies' faces using a brown Copic multiliner, added some inking,chalk, brads from The Paper Studio, Smooch, Stickles, Prima roses and of course, bling from Martha Stewart.
