Celebrate Spring!

Hi everyone! It feels like spring around here so I’ve been busy creating some fun Easter and spring projects to fit the mood!

I used pieces from the Retro Easter kit along with the Family Fun paper kit and some pink ribbon to put together this trading card featuring a photo of my mom and her siblings when then were children.

For my next project I made a spring bouquet that is sure to brighten the recipients day.

Wouldn’t this make a fun little gift for a child, co-worker, or friend? To make it I cut two different sizes of flowers from patterned paper in the Family Fun paper kit, stacked them together, punched a hole in the middle and inserted the Tootsie Pop. I created a spring tag with a sentiment from the Twirly Twine packaging card and embellished the container using some blue pom pom trim.

For my last project I made a little mixed media Easter canvas.

This Easter scene was so much fun to make. I brushed the canvas with water and then sprayed the bottom with green mist and the remainder with blue mist and let it dry. For the grass, I cut the tinsel apart from the center thread and glued it over the green mist. I also added some eggs cut from the Family Fun paper to the grass.

Using a die cut bunny I covered it with the brown crepe paper from the Dimestore Vogue paper sheets and tags kit and tied a blue string embellished with a flower from the Easter Retro kit to his neck.

For the sky I added punched clouds made from the Family Fun paper kit and sprinkled glass glitter on for some shimmer. I also added a sun cut from the yellow crepe paper in the Party Games paper sheets and tags kit.

I really enjoyed using the Easter Retro kit! If you like creating with unique products, make sure you head over to the Easter section of the store to see all the goodies available!

Thank you for visiting!
