My Scrap Chick - Paper Eggs

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to my first DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Before I get into my project share,
I would first like to thank you for all your lovely congratulations over on facebook!
You're all so sweet about sharing in my happy news! :o)

Now...a little bit about My Scrap Chick...and what's ahead.
The shop is FULL of digital cutting files to use will all of our great machines.
Each file also comes with a PDF file, so these projects can also be made without a machine.
I'll have the pleasure of sharing some of these files with you.
However, you will want to head over to all the links below and sign up. 
Most important is to sign up to the shop newsletter. 
If you're a member of the mailing list you'll have to opportunity to receive incredible FREEBIES,
and be the first to hear about the great sales! onto my project!
I used the Paper Egg file.

I began with a paper that I thought would make an elegant egg. 
Then it turned out so elegant, that I thought it deserved to be on a stand. 
Rather Faberge-ish, right?
So I'll just call it my Faux Faberge Egg! ;o)

The file is very simple to cut and put together;
only two pieces.
I inked all the edges after it was assembled. 

To decorate the top of the egg, I bent a square filigree shape,
and glued it in place.
Then I cut the prongs off a large pearl brad, and glued it to the center of the filigree.

You can put some lovely treats inside!
I painted the wood candle stick with green acrylic paint,
and then also inked it with the gray ink.

I had so much fun with my first egg that I had to make a second.
This time I made a yellow one to make my friend Annabel happy! 

To decorate the top of this one,
I added a green flower and a pink floral button.
I tied a yellow fiber bow through the pink button.

This one I put on a wood candle cup turned upside down.
I painted it with yellow acrylic paint, and added a bit of pink ink to it. 
Then glued it to the bottom of the egg.

It's a little stubbier than the other egg but so cute!

Other Materials Used:
Papers: K & Company;
Egg 1:
Square Filigree;
Large Pearl Brad;
Stampin' Up Gray Ink;

Hello, my friends!

Today is the beginning of a new challenge at All Dressed Up!

With Easter being just around the corner,
I've used the lovely "Easter Bunny" image,

I coloured my sweet bunny in a light pastel green.
Then I did some simple die-cutting and layering,
also in pretty pastel shades.

Finally, I added some bling with a glittery bow,
some pretty pearls, and some sparkling Stickles.

Here's a closer look at the image:

One last look at the finished card:

Whisker Graphics - Easter Treat Bags

Hello, my friends!

I'm back to share a fun project created with products from the Whisker Graphics Shop!
I'm also over on the Whisker Graphics Blog today.
You're going to want to go over there and subscribe in the sidebar, if you haven't already done so. 
That way you won't miss what the rest of the DT shares,
and all the fun ways you can use these great products!

 Here's what we're making today...some fun Easter treat bags!

I began by gathering the Whisker Graphics products I wanted to use.
I chose the Horizontal Striped Middy Biddy Bags in Aqua and Green.
Then I chose the matching Divine Twine Bamboo in Solid Green, and Aqua &White.
Finally, from the shop, I added two Large White Tags.
From my stash, I added some scraps of matching cardstock,
 and some Easter printables from Gecko Galz (not shown).

Also in my stash, I found some coordinating inks and an Easter stamp.
I stamped the "Happy Easter" on each white tag.
I stamped it high on the tag because the bottom will be covered.

I threaded several strands of the twine through the hole in the tag,
and then tied a twine bow around them.

Finally, for each treat bag, I matted the printable with the matching cardstock.
Then I adhered everything in place on the bag front as shown in the photo.

There is room on the tag to add a name or message.
These bags are a great size to fill with some yummy goodies,
or perhaps a different kind of Easter gift!

Other Materials Used:
Easter Printables: Gecko Galz - Easter Wishes Collage Sheet;
Inks: Distress Ink - Peacock Feathers, Stampin' Up - Lucky Limeade;
Stamp: Amy R - Easter Blessings. 

* * * * *
This was so much fun...I'll be making lots more of these!
Just a simple change of paper and elements,
 and it would be a brand new project.

Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back again soon with another project share!

Simply Crafty SVGs - Glitter Glue Holder

Hello, my sweet friends!

First, I want to give you all a very heartfelt THANK YOU
for your very sweet and supportive comments on my happy news post yesterday!
I sure do appreciate your kindness and encouragment!
BIG thanks to all of you! <3

Okay...onto more fun...

Welcome to my very first post as a member of the 
Simply Crafty SVGs Design Team!

I'll be here to share a fabulous cut file with you each month.

This month I'm sharing the wonderful Glitter Glue Holder,
which you can find HERE.

This is such a fun and practical project,
and it came together so quick and easy!
Wouldn't it make a great gift for all your crafty friends?

You'll want to use a double-sided paper for the side and back pieces.

The file cuts the holes and slits, and includes the circle reinforcements. 

All the pieces are there to give it a completely finished look.

It's even beautiful from the back!

Here it is all full! Isn't it fabulous?
I have enough liquid pearls to fill another one!

I hope you try one of your own. 
You can customize it to match your crafty space,
and the price can't be beat! 

See you next month with another fun project! :o)
