Its never just a card!

Its never just a card!  Last night at our Easter class I talked to everyone about using their skills to spread God’s love.  Our cards are creations of art and we share some of ourself when we share it with others.  If you are a child of God, that means you are sharing him too.  He created us as creative beings, and using our skills to the best of our ability is a way that we can honor him and serve others.  Share God’s love when you share your cards.  Pray for the recipient as you address that envelope.  Add a Scripture to encourage someone.  Do it ALL for the glory of God.

Ok, off my soapbox now.  I wanted to recap our Easter class last night.  I am so sorry if you missed it, because we had a great time together.  Here are the projects we made.  There were 4 tonight because I threw a BONUS project in for fun.  🙂

The last picture was our bonus project.  Aren’t those sweet bunny ears fun?  I hope you know though, that Easter isn’t about a bunny.  It is the celebration of our resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ.  May you experience his perfect peace this Easter season.

If you would like to have the instructions for those cute Hershey nugget bunny ears, leave a comment with your email address and I will send the pdf to you.  If you know someone who would be inspired by these projects, please share this page on Facebook!  I look forward to stamping with you soon!  Happy Easter!


Berry Basket Without The Die

When I heard you could make a berry basket without the die I knew I had to give it a try.  I love these cute little baskets, but the Big Shot Die to create them is still on my wishlist.  Creating this basket from scratch is really pretty simple and I love how it turned out.   All you need is some 8 1/2 X 11″ cardstock, a paper trimmer with a scoring blade, a stapler and some strong adhesive—I used Stampin’ Up’s Fast Fuse.  I also embellished mine with stamps and ink.  Here’s how it turned out…

Isn’t that adorable?  I used flowers from the Botanicals For You stamp set to embellish it before I assembled the basket.  This little basket is perfect for some Easter treats, but I have lots of ideas running through my head for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts and lots of other holiday fun.  I am excited to make another one with a handle on it.


I was in a department store the other day and saw the cutest Easter grass in a package.  It was made of paper….not the plastic stuff, but they wanted $9.99 for a small bag!  I decided to create my own and save the money.  I used Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the “grass” in my Easter basket.  Here’s another look…
