Eggs-Quisite Eggs

Last year, I went crazy around Easter and made SO much Easter decor that not a single place in my house is vacant – so this year I thought I’d cool it a bit 😉

Didn’t really plan on making anything BUT then one after another started popping up – gorgeous, darling and delicious Easter Eggs. So I thought: What the heck – I can always give them away…..that is if I can part with them.

So I made 4 different Easter Eggs. This might just take a while – so go get a nice cuppa, maybe a cookie or a biscuit and get comfy 😉

I usually stay pretty loyal to a paper pack when making a project like this but this time is going to be different. I want to flaunt some of the amazing papers outthere 🙂

Starting with the cute and somewhat different Hollow Easter Egg from Simply Crafty Svgs:

DSC_0018

This is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with Bloom patterned paper from Graphic 45.

DSC_0020

I found a vine in the Silhouette Design Store design #26976 (designed by Jennifer Wambach) and added several Prima flowers and some gems onto the egg as well.

Then I raided my stash for something cute to put inside on the ledge and found several Tim Holtz items that does the trick – gives it a spring-y and natural feel to it.

I also played a bit with the egg design and made another version without the ledge:

DSC_0021

This is also made from Vanilla Cardstock and Bloom papers.

The vine around the hole is made from design #126611 (designed by Sophie Gallo) in the Silhouette Design Store and the vine inside the egg is design #7320 (designed by Samantha Walker) from the same store.

Then I embellished with several Prima flowers, a few gems and a LED light – Voila!

Find the tutorial to the egg here.

Next is the Gouden Ei (Golden Egg) from Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen:

DSC_0012

This is made from White AC Cardstock and decorated with patterned paper from DCWV’s Unicorns & Rainbows collection + gold glitter paper from Vivi Gade.

This is one of their easier designs and it goes together perfectly and easily but with help from the Video Tutorial.

I added pieces of a rhinestone chain, from my stash, onto the egg with hot glue and embellished with a Prima butterfly.

DSC_0010

This is a box and opens up by lifting the egg shell – room for lots of chocolates 😀

Then I made the Egg 3D Form Multi Diamonds from Jodi Warner/Snapdragon Snippets found the Silhouette Design Store design #291232:

DSC_0006

This is a closed egg and is designed to either stand alone or be made with a small stub so it’ll fit in the candle stands that Jodi also designed – I decided that I wanted it to stand alone. Find the tutorial here.

I used AC Cardstock in White for the egg itself and decorated with glitter paper in various colors for a kind of Harlekin effect.

I also added some small and large rhinestones as embellishments and topped it all of with a Prima butterfly.

I regretted that I hadn’t made it with the stub, so I might make three new eggs like this and decorate my candle stands.

Finally I made the Eggs-Quisite Gift Box from Dreaming Tree:

DSC_0012

This elegant gift box is part of a bundle – Easter Time – with several adorable Easter projects. Find the tutorial for the egg here.

I used AC Cardstock in White, Rosebud, Olive, Scarlet, Peach and Plum along with patterned paper from Prima’s Lavender Frost Collection, Rose Gold Mercury Glass Paper from DCWV and Rose Gold glitter paper from DCWV.

I found some bling-y ribbon/chain and added it with hot glue and topped it all of with a pearl embellishment from a Hat Pin.

This one will also hold an insane amount of chocolate so you might want to fill it with a bit of tissue paper before filling it 😉

DSC_0016

So that is what I made for Easter this year – don’t really know if I can part with them….we’ll see 😀

Thanks for sticking with me through this rather long post (so sorry) and please remember how excited I get when reading your lovely comments below 😉

Happy Easter ❤

 

 

 

Little Red Easter Wagon

Hello and Happy Monday…..Happy Spring and Happy Easter 🙂

Today I want to show you a small and very easy but adorable project I made using the Little Wagon file from Simply Crafty Svgs.

DSC_0004

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Crimson, Black and White and I decorated the wheels with small red dots from Simple Stories.

It’s unbelievable easy to assemble and it even has it’s own tutorial video.

I decorated mine for Easter with some chocolate eggs and flowers from my stash but I can imagine lots of other purposes for this cutie – like a place card for a kid’s Birthday (downsized to 75% or 50%) or maybe for Halloween with a skull or a pumpkin in it.

Thanks for joining me today. I really appreciate you stopping by and would love it if you would leave me small comment below – maybe with more fun ideas on how to use the file?

Happy Easter ❤

Easter Basket

Each year – or almost each year 😉 – I make some small Easter treat holders for my nephews and niece. This year will be no different.

I seek out something I haven’t made before and this year I’m making the adorable Easter Basket from Simply Crafty Svgs:

DSC_0004

This basket can be made by anyone (with a digital cutting machine of course) – it is so easy to assemble. The hardest part is choosing the paper 😉

I made it from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Sweet Sentiments.” All edges are inked with a light brown Distress Ink pad.

I also found some small flowers in matching colors in my stash…..

DSC_0005

…..and added a little cute picture inside the basket, that shows when the eggs are eaten.

DSC_0008

Luckily I was able to find chocolate/marzipan eggs in matching colors too 😀

I hope this year’s treat with bring joy as the others did – this crazy aunt just loves to spoil those kids….Ehm…young adults 😉

Here’s a 360 view:

Thanks for stopping by today 🙂 I really hope you’ll leave a little comment below and that you’ll visit soon again. I’m just getting started 😉

 

3 X 3 = Hygge

What is “Hygge”?

Hygge is a Danish word for coziness – for snuggling under a blanket, being with friends or Family or maybe just being yourself watching your favorite series in candle light, cuddled up in a warm blanket ❤

Hygge is definitely what comes to my mind when I see candles – being real or LED – and that is exactly what I’ve been working on for the last week. Not just one but 3 😉

Not just candles – they have to have something to stand on, so I made 3 candlesticks too.

Not just candles and candlesticks – I added a ring of leaves – or should I say 3.

Enough yapping – here they are:

dsc_0005

Candle 3D Chunky with Drips rests nicely on the Candle Stand 3D for Display with a alternated Candle Ring 3D Evergreens sandwiched between.

Let me start with the candle ring, as I made it somewhat different than the original.

dsc_0011

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Leaf and Kale.

I used my Silhouette software to remove the Evergreen sprigs from the ring and add Leafy Sprigs instead as I wanted a more Springy feel to the project. It’s all about daring to use different features in the Silhouette Software (I bet lots of other cutting software offers features like this) like Make or Release “Compound path”, Welding or editing Points. All in all just play around – you can’t fail cause you can always go back.

Then I made the Candle in AC Cardstock Caramel and inked the edges with Distress Ink in a light brown shade. The candle sure is easy to make! You just have to have your pieces organized.

dsc_0007

Finally I made the Candle Stand or Stick in AC Cardstock Vanilla and inked the edges with the same Distress Ink. This is also very easy to make and it is so sturdy!

dsc_0013

That’s it – times 3. Ready for Spring, Easter and Summer. You could add flowers to the rings for more decoration – I just like them the way they are.

Thanks for joining me today – please let me know what you think of this project in a comment below and have a super cozy Sunday.

Springtime Bouquet

Hello again 🙂

Just popping in for a quick little post on the cute Spring-y flower bouquet I made last night 🙂 The flowers being from the devine bundle from Dreaming Tree Alluring Florals.

DSC_0003

I was going for only making the Gardenias, but it got too white and neutral for my taste, so I made some more flowers to make a small but very cute bouquet and put it in a Mason jar. Then I tied some hemp ribbon in a bow on the jar.

But to start with the Gardenia:

DSC_0004

It’s made from AC Cardstock in White, Pine and Mint. I didn’t chalk the flower petals but only the stems and the leaves.

This is by far the easiest of all the flowers to make 🙂 Imagine a whole bouquet of them as Wedding Bouquet ❤

To make this bouquet extra Spring-y I decided to make a Daffodil too and I used the one from the Daffodilly Spring bundle.

DSC_0006

I used AC Cardstock in Banana, Melon and Spinach for this Daffodil and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink 🙂

To mount it on the stem, I just used the same technique as for the rest of the flowers 🙂 – that went surprisingly well 🙂

The rest of the flowers are the same as for the Floral Arrangement I posted yesterday but here are some pictures of the ones in the bouquet 😉

I really hope you like this as much as I do – maybe I’ll give that Wedding Bouquet a spin in the future 🙂 I think that’ll look awesome.

Thanks for joining me today – please do leave me some love in a comment ❤

Chocolate Bunny Basket

Hello and happy Easter Sunday Morning 🙂

In this my last Easter post, I want to show you a darling basket I made using the SnapDragon Snippets Basket Lrg 3D Choc Bunny Insert:

DSC_0002

This cutie is made from AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg, Pine, Spinach, Oregano and Key Lime. I decorated it with patterned paper from Graphic 45 “Once Upon a Springtime” and some assorted Prima flowers from my rather large flower stash instead of the Happy Easter sign.

I also used 4 small pink brads to secure the handle and tied a bow in green organza ribbon on top of the handle.

Finally I put in the adorable chocolate bunny and boom! Ready for giving it away – this time to my sister as her Easter Egg from me. I do hope she likes it!

A very easy and most cute project to make for Easter and if you want to put in something else than the bunny, just leave out the insert.

Thank you so much for joining me today and for all my Easter projects – Now it’s time for something else – Let’s see what I come up with 😉

More Easter projects…..

……Yes – I’m a complete Easter Maniac this year 😀

I’ve got some more Easter projects to show you 🙂 but I promise that these will be some of the last you’ll see from me….this year 😉

First of I made the adorable Egg Holder with a 3D Bunny from the Silhouette Design Store – designed by Tanya Batrak:

DSC_0008

This is a very easy but so cute project to make and it requires a minimum of supplies.

I down sized the original file by 50% and cut the bottom of the box, the grass and the Bunny out of AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Spinach and Grass (the eyes are cut from black pearl paper and doodled with a White Sharpie) and the top is made from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden” paper.

Then I assembled the box and the bunny (find the tutorial here) and glued him inside the middle hole so he can peak out.

I added some cress to the two plastic egg-shells (I was a bit out of time – my original thought was to grow the cress inside each shell. That will get you a better looking cress) and put them in the two remaining holes. Easy peasy and ready for the Easter Lunch table.

DSC_0009

“Hello” 😀

Next I made the Easter Wreath from Miss Kate Cuttables:

DSC_0003

This one I supersized to fit the 12″x12″ cutting mat and cut it from AC Cardstock in Robin’s Egg, Bubblegum, Lipgloss, Mint, Key Lime, Peach, Banana, Vanilla and Cheastnut.

It is very easy to assemble and for a fun little touch, I used Glossy Accent in all the “holes” in the eggs and berries. What a shine!

Now it’s hanging on my entrance door to greet all visitors 🙂

So finally I made the cute 3D Bunny from the Bunny Hop SVG Kit by SVGCuts:

DSC_0011

I’ve made her before, but this time I downsized her by 50% so she could sit in the Easter Egg shaped Dome I found online.

She is made from AC Cardstock in White and Bubblegum and patterned paper from Doodlebug Design paper “Springtime.” The eyes are two black pearls from Prima.

Even though she is downsized, she is still very easy to make and she is SO adorable this small.

DSC_0009

So there you have it. All of these projects were made ready for hubby’s Birthday Brunch last Sunday and are now a part of my HUGE Easter decor stash 😀

Thanks for stopping by today. I really hope you enjoyed these projects and I promise I’m ALMOST done with Easter……I just have one more thing to show. Stay tuned 😀

 

Easter Egg Shaker Bag

Hello 🙂 So glad you found the time to join me today.

I know I’ve been going a bit cray cray with all kinds of Easter projects lately – I just feel so inspired this year.

This time I’ve thrown myself at the cute Easter Egg Hunt Collection from Bird. I felt like having a bit of fun with the files, so I simply combined two of the files into one – The Easter Egg Shaker Card and the Easter Egg Hunt Gift Bag. I also downsized the two files to 50% (so it holds less egg – I’m not a rich girl 😉 )

DSC_0014

For this project I used AC Cardstock in Lavender and Vanilla along with cream colored Pearl Paper. I also used various sequins and glitter to put inside the shaker part.

I also added a small Prima Flower and some leaves, decorated the front of the bag with some small gems in purple and pink and tied a organza ribbon on as handle. Then I filled the bag with chocolates 😛

All you have to do is follow the instructions videos that Bird made and simply put the shaker part from the card onto the bag insted of the panel piece made for it. I did scramble a bit around with the sizes to make them fit perfectly together – just make sure to group the shaker parts together so they still fit together. The size for the shaker front panel is: 101.46 mm x 78.22 mm (3.994″ x 3.080″ )

Here’s a close-up so you can see the sequins and glitter in the shaker:

DSC_0016

A small but easy and fun project that I really hope you feel like making too 🙂

Thanks for joining me today…..Easter is racing towards us. Have you decorated your house yet and are you done with your Easter craft projects? Me….No…..and NO 😀

 

Happy Little Hopper

Good evening……well – it is evening now here in Denmark 🙂

I’m just popping in to show you the cutest little bunny I made last night. It’s from Dreaming Tree’s latest bundle Easter Frolics  – the Easter Bunny Egg Box:

DSC_0005

She is made from AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Lemon and Apricot along with Swiss Dot Cardstock from Bazzill in Purple and Pink, Orange and Green glitter cardstock. The facial features are made from black pearl paper and the freakels are Ranger Enamel Accent in Black. All the panels are embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and I used lots of pop dots for the face, body, arms and feet along with the bow to give it the right dimension.

I dotted the eyes and feet with a White Sharpie and added a small flower gem to the center of the bow.

Now I did say “cute little bunny” but she’s really not that small at all. She can hold LOTS of chocolate Easter eggs 😛 A real treat for the youngsters (and people like me 😀 )

As always with Dreaming Tree the assembly is very easy (did mine without the tutorial) and smooth and in case you just want to get the bunny, you can get her seperately here.

Thanks for stopping by and please brighten my spirits with a small comment on your way out ❤

Hello Spring

Hello to Spring…..Hello to you and Happy Sunday!

Today I want to show some Easter and Spring projects that I made this last week. Who isn’t dying to get out all their Easter and Spring decor right about now and start decorating? I know I’m soooo ready for Spring and Easter always marks the transition from Winter to Spring for me. So I’ve been busy creating.

First of I want to show the cute Spring Wreath from SnapDragon Snippets that I made using the Flat 3D Daisy instead of the original flower – just to make it more dimensional.

DSC_0008

I used AC Cardstock in Lollypop, Cotton Candy, Grass, Oregano, Melon and Sunflower and inked all the edges with Prima Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads. Then I used a black Sharpie to draw the small dot on the centers of the flowers. Finally I tied a pink dottet ribbon on top and that’s it. Very very easy to make – and it’s so Spring-y.

DSC_0010

Next I made the small and adorable 3D Chick Box that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (it is a SVG Attic file though)

DSC_0020

Isn’t he cute?

I used AC Cardstock in Canary, Dandelion, Caramel, Chocolate and Black and for the wings I used Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock in a light yellow.

I inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads and mounted the wings with yellow heart shaped eyelets. Finally I dotted the little eye with a white Sharpie.

Love this little fellow to bits – and it’s a box that you can put treats in!

Last but not least I made an Easter Card:

DSC_0018

This adorable and fun card is the Bunny Shaker Window Card from SnapDragon Snippets (also available in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #189097)

For this baby I used AC Cardstock in White, Black, Carrot, Sunflower, Grass, Oregano and Peony and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads. I used a piece of Acetate from Crafter’s Companion as window and filled it with Skittles. Now who wouldn’t love to get a card like this one?

And there you have it – the Easter/Spring projects I’ve been fiddling with this last week and believe me – I ain’t done yet!

Thanks for joining me today – hope to see lots of Easter and Spring crafting goodies from you guys!
