Easter Daffodil Banner - Floral Framelits

I was looking on Google, as I can usually be found doing, and came across a Beatrix Potter Easter wreath. I was taken by the daffodils (even though there is not a very good picture of them to be found at all!!) and thought I could make something similar with the Floral Framelits! 
So, as my darling daughter destroyed my craft room - I wish I was joking, or it was only for alliterations sake, but sadly NO - I played around and came up with this banner! 
Hard to get a large photo of a large banner. Its a little over 5' long.
I am pleased overall with it: I love the way the cross came out on the T and the flowers are exactly what I wanted. I think I will make a couple more to sell at the Carnival later this month, but I will use some more pastel colors. Purple, pink, a light green...

Daffodils and Narcissi - Spring is Here!!
The Pearls may be my favorite accent... the butterflies pop nicely too, though!
Every letter has pearl accents. I love the finished product!
 The flowers are cut with the Stampin' Up! Floral Framelits on the Big Shot, using the two largest dies on Crushed Curry and Whisper White Card Stock. The centers are punched with the Scallop punches and popped up a little with Stampin' Up! Dimensionals. I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die for the butterfly accents in Melon Mambo. Some little flowers are added with the scallop from the Punch Pack, accented with Basic Jewels Pearls - which I also used to accent the cross on the letter T. The cross is die cut with the Lattice Die, then trimmed to shape. The banner pennants were cut from Garden Green Card Stock. The letters were cut using my Silhouette Cameo and Pool Party Card Stock.

Not bad for a #crafternoon project!
I made it, and I can show you how - come to one of my events, or set up a private class! I'd love to share ideas with you, and help you bring your ideas to life.

Easter Bunny & Carrot Garland

I'm 'hopping' with excitement to share this with you!! :-))
Bunny and Carrot Garland made of Stampin Up Paper
Hoppy Easter!! 
Like most of you, I pinned the adorable paper carrot garlands, you see them in felt or paper - they're just too cute!! I thought it would be a great item to make for the craft fair I have coming up, so I set about making one. I used the Stampin' Up! Brights Designer Series Paper Stack, following the measurements Lisa Storms shares over at Fiskars. When I had all my sweet carrots made up and ready to string, I thought  "Oh... cute... but its missing something!" 
I should add a bunny to the sequence, to really give it some Easter flair!!
Looking around for some instructions, or at least a photo (me and my love affair with Google again!) I found NO matching bunnies!! So I came up with the idea to make one like the carrots, but in white... and here they are! 
Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper Neutrals
and Pink Pirouette Card Stock

The measurements are similar to the carrots, but as I wasn't going to trim the edges with the scallop border, I made the strips for the bunnies only 1.25" wide. The ears are 0.75", and the pink strips are 0.5" wide. The length is 12" for the body, 6" for the ears, and 4" for the pinks inside the ears. For the pink inside the body, I used an 8.5" strip cut to 0.5" too. 
Follow same assembly method as for the carrots.
Assembling the bunny is almost identical to the carrot, it is just a matter of layering your ear pieces and tucking them into the body and stapling, flipping the long pieces out and down. But then, instead of stapling the bottom into a point like the carrot, you overlap and round the body and staple the inside pink piece together. 

And Voila!! An adorable addition to the carrot garland! 
At least, I thought so! Hope you like it too!!

The perfect paper and ribbons for your own garland 
can be purchased at my online store! :-)

Burlap and Blooms Wreath Kit #Crafternoon

Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit
It begins with a single bloom...
Getting together with friends is always a fun occasion, but getting together to Make Something with friends, well that is a #crafternoon!!

I often hear how people could NEVER make the crafty stuff I manage to make, they're just "not crafty"! But SERIOUSLY. Everyone. can. make this wreath!! You need a glue gun, so yes there is Hot Glue involved, but Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for you! Everything is pre-cut, pre-measured, pre-coordinated... you just assemble and arrange, and it comes out GREAT!!!

This kit is available in our 2014 Spring Catalog, and the colors are just gorgeous. Burlap and pastels, it will breathe a little breath of spring into your home or office. It could make a nice gift, or just attach a photo or two and give it to a friend!

Here are some pictures from a couple of the group craft sessions where we've made this wreath. Its so nice to sit and laugh with friends while you make something. The laughter gets caught up in what you make, so when you look at it later you have so many reasons to smile! <3 nbsp="" p="">

And, for you that are still singing the "I'm not crafty" song... You need to change your tune!!
"She's Crafty!" will be running through your head every time you look at this awesome wreath! #earworm
