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

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.

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)

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

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 ❤

 

Tick Tock…..

I am finally getting into the game again. Being sick is just horrible for someone like me. Someone who always has to have something to make….to create….to play with. Being forced to lay in bed for a week is torture not to mention one more week of endless coughing, sneezing and a brain that’s just gone completely blank. URG!

Well finally there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I managed to stay up and do a bit of crafting. And I threw myself at Dreaming Tree’s cute little Dogwood Mantel Clock:

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut to make the clock along with patterned paper from Graphic 45 “Rare Oddities” and some wood patterned paper from Kaisercraft. I also used some gold pearl paper for some of the clock detail and more pearl paper in mint, purple and light purple for the flowers. Finally I found some large jewels in my stash for the center of the flowers.

The only thing I thought that was missing for this clock, was the ability to light it up from the inside, so I made it possible by cutting the clock face through all the front layers and added some vellum behind the clock face.

Now I can tell time in the dark too 😉

This was such a nice little rebound project for me and I feel somewhat like my old self again – about time!!!

Thanks for joining me – please remember to leave a small comment if you liked my little project.

 

Pucker Up

Believe me!…..this is very unusual for me 😀 Here is a Valentines Day post from me 😀

I could swear that I would never post anything pink, red and gooey but I just got a new toy: The Cricut Maker. So naturally I had to play.

I know absolutely nothing about the Design Space – the Maker’s software, so I had to find things to play with to learn and this cute Lips Gift Box from Bird’s SVGs was just perfect.

I made the box from AC Cardstock in Rouge and red pearl paper. It is really really easy to make and assemble.

Then I filled it with chocolates:

Now ready for someone 😀 LOL

Making this really teached me a thing or two about the Maker and love a lot of the features…..I’ll keep playing 🙂

Happy Valentines Day to all of you ❤

Happy Birthday Mom!

My Mom’s birthday is tomorrow and I just want to show you what I made for her (we celebrated today so now it’s ok for me to show you 😀 )

Dreaming Tree recently released the Cupid Crush Bundle and this is where you’ll find the Love Blossom Pop Up Card. DSC_0004

I did alter my version a bit – leaving out some of all the hearts. I also added three flowers from the Apple Blossom Lantern,  also from Dreaming Tree, to the front of the card.

I made the card itself from a piece of Prima “Raspberry Tea Collection” paper. Then I added some white pearl paper that I embossed with a Tuscan Tile pattern.

The flowers are made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud and Shrimp and the leaves are in Grass. Then I added some white pearls along with some gold sequins, Doodlebug jewels and a gold embellishment I happened to have in my stash.

The card is a pop up card and here’s a look of the inside of the card:

It was this gorgeous lush flower that sold this card to me!

I made it from vellum that I inked with Prima chalk ink. The flower center is made from green vellum and the leaves are AC Cardstock in Grass and Key Lime.

So that was the card.

I also made her a flower decoration:

This is the Mothers’s Day Bon Bon Bouquet again from Dreaming Tree.

I changed out the heart on the front with a Peony flower from the Peony Gift Box also a Dreaming Tree design.

The box is made from AC Cardstock in White and decorated with panels made from Prima “Raspberry Tea Collection” paper.

The Peony is made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud and Cotton Candy with leaves in Leaf and the center is Banana.

The Bon Bon Flowers are made from AC Cardstock in Rosebud, Shrimp, Cotton Candy, Latté and Robin’s Egg and the leaves and tendrils are made from Leaf and Mint.

All edges are inked with Prima Chalk ink.

I’m very sure my Mom loved it – she loves everything that I make her 😀

Happy 69’th Birthday tomorrow Mom!

 

 

 

To the Great Beyond….

 

I just love how crafters inspire each other. I got the idea for this project from Trina Struckman from one of the papercraft groups I’m in on Facebook. She made a gorgeous version of the Weihnachtsglocke (Christmas Bell) from Sunshine Hobby Works. When I saw her post, I didn’t see the bells – I saw something completely different.

Do you remember the 1994 movie Stargate? I think it inspired a TV-series among other stuff? Anyways….it’s about this ancient ring-shaped device that creates a wormhole enabling travel to a similar device elsewhere in the universe. Now THAT was what I saw 😀

I made this from Granite AC Cardstock, grey Pearl cardstock and some glitter paper in Black. I used glow-in-the-dark vinyl for the signs and gold vinyl for the arrows.

Inside I added two rows of LED strips for light.

It was so much fun to make and all I really did was leaving out the bells.

It looks cool in the dark too 🙂

I think it will be a hit next weekend when my son has kids from his class over for a Birthday party since he requested a space/Halloween theme 😀

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of my wacky idea 😀
