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:

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.

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.

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 😀

 

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 ❤

Egg-stravagant Baskets……

So glad you decided to come join me today, as I want to show you the most darling little Easter Egg Baskets I made.

All of these baskets are designed by the very talented Tracey Moon Rushton of Idea Closet and can be purchased  here

Let’s start off with the smallest – the Chocolate Egg Basket Single:

DSC_0008

 

Next is the Chocolate Egg Basket Double that holds two eggs:

DSC_0010

 

And the largest of the baskets, the Chocolate Egg Basket 4 pack that holds 4 eggs:

DSC_0006

 

For my versions of the baskets, I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Secret Garden”.

I cut out extra panels for the inside of the baskets and decorated them with various flowers from Prima and chipboard tags also from Graphic 45.

Finally I put in plastic eggs that I decorated with paper borders and Prima flowers + small gems as flower centers, since I haven’t gotten to buying any eggs for them yet 😮

The baskets also comes in a handy bundle if you decide to get all three baskets at once

That was all for now – feels like I’m not quite done with Easter just yet 😉 Stay tuned for more……

 

Bunny Garden

Hello – so glad you want to join me today.

I’m sneaking in to show you a “little” project I made this week. You know when the idea hits, you just gotta go with it – so I did.

I’ve set my mind to changing up the Carrot 4 pnl 3d Box Fence from SnapDragon Snippets and I thought of changing the carrots to bunnies.

untitled

So I grabbed the nose and whiskers from the Bunny Shaker Window Card, the ears from the Bunny 3D Spheres Figure and the eyes from the Bunny Tummy Lip Balm Standing Card and started my project.

DSC_0010

I made the Bunnies in White AC Cardstock with ears and nose in Cotton Candy and the eyes and whiskers in black pearl paper. I dotted the eyes and nose with a white Sharpie and inked the edges with a Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink pad in Pastel Brown.

The ears are made as I would for the 3D Spheres Figure, but I cut the bottom of and glued it onto the top of the front segment, filled it with candy and then I closed the box by tying a ribbon around the top segments and made a bow. I did this for all three bunnies.

DSC_0014

Then onto the box itself….

It’s made from green Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock and White AC Cardstock and all edges are inked with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads in Pastel Brown and Garden Grass. Then all I had to do was follow the instructions from Jodi G. Warners tutorial.

DSC_0012

Last but not least I added some Prima flowers onto the fence for that Spring feel.

Hope you like this “little” project as much as I do and thanks for joining me today.

Tiny Easter Eggs

It’s is closing in on us – need to get those projects done because before you know it, Easter has come and gone.

So my main focus these days is Easter since I don’t have that much made the last couple of years. And there are so many cute projects out there, so you can easily fill your living room, kitchen and bedrooms with lots of cute chickens, Easter Bunnies etc.

Being a slightly active crafter ( 😉 ) I don’t have a lot of space for storage, so I decided to try and downsize some Easter decor and I chose to start with the darling Egg Chocolate Box from Bird’s Eggstravagance SVG Collection

DSC_0028

This tiny cutie is downsized by 50% and I used AC Cardstock in White along with pearl paper in Purple, Gold, Mint and Lilac for it. Then I embellished with different gems and dots from my stash.

To make the Egg a bit more considerable, I made the Cupcake Stand from Bird’s Celebrate With Cupcakes Collection for it to sit on. The stand is also downsized by 50 %.

I love that it fits into one of my Glass Domes – tiny and pretty. It’s about 4.8″ tall.

DSC_0024

But wait – there is more……

You can’t have one without the other, so I made the Egg Luminary also from the Eggstravagance SVG Collection downsized by 50% (now 4.88″ tall)

DSC_0039

I made it from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Pearl paper in gold. Then I embellished with lots of cream colored pearls from my stash. It’s perfect sized – a LED tea light candle fit perfectly inside.

And just look how gorgeous it is in the dark with a color shifting LED light inside

DSC_0008

Now don’t be fooled by the tiny-ness of these projects. They take the same time to make and assemble as the original sizes and this is definitely something you would want to consider making unless you’re a bit masochistic as I am, cause the bits are very small and it’s somewhat tricky to assemble. I think I just enjoy torturing myself with these tiny projects 😀

Thanks for joining me today. I really hope you enjoyed my tiny eggs and I hope you are as busy Easter crafting as I am. Don’t forget to leave me a comment on your way out ❤
