Egg-celent Easter Treats

Today I'm posting a project I did for the kiddos in my family.  I picked up the clear plastic tubes on sale for $.75 each at a local scrapbook store and knew they'd be perfect for filling with Easter goodies.  It's my opinion that this time of year brings out the yummiest candy imagineable!  And I just can't help myself when it comes to passing these treats out to loved ones.

Cricut cuts were all done at 3-4" tall.

I should also mention that this project was done for Challenge #3 over at Just-A-Scrappin.  Head on over to check out the other DT projects for some egg-stra special inspiration.

Luck of the Irish

We've been having the most beautiful weather in Minnesota and I'm chalking it up to the luck of the Irish!  In celebration of St. Patrick's day on Saturday I've created a card to give my hubby.

Leprechaun cut from Simply Charmed at 3" tall

Triangles for banner cut from CM Art Philosophy at 1.25" wide

This card is my design for challenge #2 over at Just-A-Scrappin.  The challenge requirement was to use the color green and a banner.

Just-A-Scrappin Challenge #1 - Card Cutout

Our first challenge over at Just-A-Scrappin is to create a card using a cutout or frame.  My take on this was to use an image as my cardbase instead of the standard rectangle.  This comes at a perfect time to make a congrats card for a girlfriend of mine that found out recently she's expecting a boy!

The bottle is a cut from Gypsy Wanderings and is 4" wide x 7" tall.  I used my Gypsy to weld two of the bottle shapes together.  I also used the hide contour feature to only cut certain parts of the bottle.  A lot of hand trimming took place in order to get the nipple of the bottle a different color and to place the colorful striped paper behind the cutout portion on the front.

And now that I've hopefully spurred your creativity, hop on over to Just-A-Scrappin to add your creation to this challenge!
