Easter Blog Hop

Happy first day of Spring!! I am excited to be part of an Easter blog hop with my fellow Close to My Heart teammates from Evergreen Memories. We will be showing off the latest papers, stamps, embellishments, and inks from the new 2013 Spring/Summer Idea Book.

If you started the hop elsewhere, you probably just came from Lalia's Blog. Welcome!

I used my favorite paper packet from the new catalog - Chantilly. The pastel colors make me think of ice cream and warm weather. Plus, they mix well with bold colors. I had fun playing with my Artiste Cricut cartridge and I was looking for an excuse to cut out the hot air balloon. The balloon makes me think of blue skies with puffy clouds and no rain in sight! The little bunny peeping in the grass was also cut on the Artiste cartridge, right down to his flower tail. The cloud in the background is actually negative space in the card base. I mounted white cardstock behind it and sponged lightly. For the "Easter" sentiment on the Cricut, I used our new glitter paper and had no problems cutting it. I hope you like my creation!

Project Inspiration: Muslin Gift Bags

I think these new Close to My Heart stampable muslin gift bags are so cute! It is an easy technique too. I can't wait to try this when my muslin bags and pigment inks arrive. C'mon Fedex!
