Happy Easter!

Easter is just next week and we are creating Easter projects all weekend long over at The Cutting Cafe blog.

What is Easter?
Easter is the 3rd day after Good Friday - when we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16


Here, I made a card using the Happy Easter overlay template and I glittered up the words using some Distress Glitter {mustard seed}. The bunny cutout is from SVG Attic.


Although I have no idea how bunnies are related to Easter, I would love to have a Choc Bunny right now hahaa.

I just want to thank God for all that He has done for me and I am definitely blessed.

Happy (early) Easter! :)

Thank You Jar of Flowers + a BIG Sales!

Hello! :)

It's Hippity Hop time with the Unity DT chicks again and I am back with a card!

But before that... do you - at times - get stuck and have no inspirations at all on what to make? Well, I do!
For me, Pinterest and Instagram is pretty inspirational. But... I am absolutely an INSTA addict! I check it all the time and love seeing what others create. And to think I only started my account a few months ago. Haha.

Here's a quick sneak at my Insta account @scrappyscrappy_
Yeah, I make and try quite a few things out in my spare time - as if I'm not busy enough, right? :)



***

OK, now back to the card I made today and LOTS of exciting stuff to share!!!

Using this month's KOTM "Always Begin Again", I used the jar (which is huge) and I love all those flowers on it along with the Thank You sentiment.


I colored the jar in with my Copics and also added some glossy accent on the flowers (which my camera cannot capture well enough). For the background, I have embossed it with Maggie Holmes embossing folder and used my favorite spritz - the Prima Color Bloom spray {Iris & Teal}.


Today's card was inspired by this month's Unity {be inspired} challenge card sketch.

Wedding Accordion Photo Display

At Scrap-n-Crop.com, we have an exclusive Kit of the month and for March - it's all about Weddings!
The design team members have each come up with some ideas on what to make from this kit and here's mine!


I created an accordion photo display for some of my wedding photos. This was relatively easy and quick to do - and after making this --- I still had TONS left in the kit!


Simply cut out 2 strips of cardstock and adhere them together. Then use the 3x4 cards to embellish each page and include your photos too!


I also added some Stickles to one of the cards to bling it up. You can add any kinds of embellies from buttons, to ribbons and jewels too!


I hope you are inspired to make this simple project to display your photos!



Kits include the You are Loved Digital Cut Files and Digital Stamps* FREE!


Check out Scrap-n-Crop.com's Instagram page to view the creations by us ... or wait for the full review of each of our interpretation on this Scrap-n-Crop's blog soon!

Spring has Sprung blog hop

Here is the project I created for this hop:

Since Easter is coming soon, I made this cute 3D egg as a decor for my humble abode.



Would it surprise you if I told you that this was actually the Golf Gift Box from the "Here's to you dad" kit? 
(The kit is now being reworked and will be available soon) 

I thought it'd be cool to turn the golf ball into a 3D egg for Easter and that's exactly what I did! :) The big bow on top of the egg is a paper bow I made. You could use ribbons too.


I also used the "Easter Elements" and cut out the basket, chick and butterflies to decorate the gift box.
You could hide some chocolate or real eggs in here!! :)

Distress Stamping

Happy Saturday!

I made a card for the Unity Stamp blog using the "Trust your soul" 11/14 SMAK kit . I love the images from this set and it's perfect to make not only layouts, but also cards.

Here's a card I made where I used several different types of distress mediums.


I stamped the big heart using Picked Raspberry Distress Paint dabber and for the splatters some Mustard Seed Distress Ink. For the butterfly, I colored the stamp in using some Distress markers - which I then spritzed with some water and stamp onto some cardstock for that watercolor look. I also used some guava pink gelato for the background.


Have an awesome weekend!
