Easter Table Gifts


With Easter next weekend, I've made some little popcorn box table presents for my family get together which will act as gifts and decorations.

Starting with the basic shape cut using the Cricut and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more, I edged the top scallop with glamour dust. Then I stamped four flowers and cut them out, intricate but really worth it. Sticking a button threaded with a coordinating colour that completed the flowers which I attached to each side using foam pads. The look was finished with some ricrac attached with high tac DST. And then of course the most important bit. I filled it with chocolate eggs.

Hope you have a lovely Easter - and manage to get some crafting in with the extra days off :)

Scrapbook layout

I don't often do scrapbook layouts, but i absolutely love these images and had to do a double page spread with them. Using a pink page that already had a slight pattern on, i used some masks, which i then inked around and then went round with a white pen to add stitching (and yes it took ages!) used some pearly doodles to add some accents. Inked around the photo which i used punches to make a pretty edge that i mounted the pictures on. The sentiments were from the Scribble flowers stamp set, which i just love. I glittered the petals and added gem in centre to finish off, and must admit.... im kind of liking scrapbooking, so may have to make alot more pages.

This shot shows a close up of the stitching detail.
