Hi everyone and Happy Spring! It is finally warming up and I am so glad. I love that flowers have started blooming and the trees are starting to turn green. I want to share four projects I created using some of Eileen Hull's newest diecuts.
With Easter being this Sunday I decided for my first project I would create a mini Easter basket from a sheet of Little Sizzles Mat Board, patterned cardstock and the Cookie Box diecut. I inked the inside, edges and creases of the basket with Broken China Distress Paint before putting it together. I adhered the patterned cardstock to the outside of the basket, added the mini pom pom trim and punched holes on either side and ran a pipe cleaner threw each side of the basket to create a handle.
I used the Brenda Walton's Medallion diecut-658339 (which is retired) to added a fun twist to the front of the basket along with a vintage little chick sticker and I printed the Happy Easter sentiment from the computer to finish it off. Since I am on a 21 day no sweets or junk food ban I filled my little basket with crafty goodness.
I punched two small holes so I could add twine and knob as a closure for the chest.
I added paper flowers...store bought and handmade along with twine, thread, pearl sprays and the paper leaves are cut from the Holiday Greenery Diecut.
I adhered lace on the back of the chest to cover the edges of the cardstock I cut to define the base and the lid.
Now it is ready to store some of my washi tape. :-)
My third and fourth projects I cut two bowls each from the Mixing Bowl Diecut and I also used the 3D Food Jar and Spoon Diecut "pocket" to create an adorable arrangement. I printed these little girls and the other little girl with bowl for the other mixing bowl and then fussy cut out. I purchased these from Eclectic Anthology.
I used the Rose, 3D Diecut (558504) along with the Holiday Greenery Diecut, a few punched flowers, tulle, thread and moss to add finishing touches to the bowl.
This little bowl I kept simply by adding a little moss, paper flowers and leaves and I finished off the outside with lace and flatback pearls.
I have you have enjoyed all of my projects I shared with you today and if you have any questions about any of them please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!
