You Color My World

For this month's post, I made a card from the Happy Easter Collection.  When I saw the brush and the paint drip I knew I wanted to make an art related card.
I took the egg on the front and transformed it into a paint palette by adding different size circles and joining them to the original egg using Make The Cut.  

I cut everything on my Cricut, including the watercolor paper so I could drop some watercolor and acrylic paint on the panel as well as the color wells.

On the inside of the card I followed the same theme using card stock with color drips and smears.

I stamped "You Color My World" with a Unity Stamp I just received in the mail yesterday.  Perfect timing, Unity!!

There is a tutorial to put this card together on the Kneedles and Knowledge blog for your convenience.  

This file also comes with a matching envelope.  I used the same color of cards stock as the front panel and the designer paper on inside panels for the envelope.

Well, my friends, sad to say this is my last post as an Design Team member.  I want to personally thank Beth Fiscus for having faith in me and choosing me to be a member of the team for the six month duration.  I enjoyed using SVG Attic files and modifying them into different projects.  I will miss the excitement  of the blog hops for sure, but especially the camaraderie with all the people associated with SVG Attic!

I turned down the request to continue as a member because my husband and I will be traveling in the summer and, of course, I'll be away from my computer!

 I hope I will be able to contribute in the future if there are other opportunities to join the team again!

Keep on crafting, I know I will!!

Easter Treat Baskets

 Hello SVG Attic fans!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with some Easter baskets.
 First us is this super sweet woven basket from the Cottontail Bunny kit.  I inked all the colored weaving strips with brown chalk ink to add a little distressing.  The basket is quite simple to assemble and there is a tutorial for it HERE.  For a finishing touch, I added several colorful buttons to add visual interest.
This treat bag is so cute!  It is also from the Cottontail Bunny kit at SVG Attic.  I had fun picking out the different colors of papers to use on it.
If you are want to look for more Easter SVG kits, you can find them HERE!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Chevron EOS Lip Balm Treats ~ with Courtney

Chevron + EOS = LOVE

I just love all things Chevron and the ways to use the EOS lip balm capsules are brilliant.

So when a friend asked me to make a few EOS favors for a tea party, I knew just what to do.

I started with the Chevron Flowers.  I resized them, (with proportions checked) to 4.409.  The center circle came out exactly the size needed for the EOS capsule.  I cut two layers.  One chevron pattern and one solid with a coordinating color.  Then I used the leaves from the Apple Card from Gearing Up 4 School.  I used dimensionals to pop the leaves away from the flower.  I inserted the capsule.  Added a bit a bling to the leaves and I had darling little tea party treats for some sweet young ladies.

They were so much fun to cut and assemble.
Thank you for stopping by.
Have a fabulously crafty day!  ♥

Bunny Box

I hope everyone enjoyed the Spring Hop as much as we did.  I am so happy to see spring!  I have to admit it is my favorite time of year.  For my project today I made the cute little bunny box from the new JGW Happy Easter Kit.  Added bonus, I got to use more of my Graphic 45 - Once Upon a Springtime.

Bunny box

He was so quick and easy to put together that I made a little family!

Doesn't he have the cutest little face.  There is just enough detail to give him character.

If you want a quick and easy project for your Easter gatherings this should be on your list.  

Do what inspires you,

Spring Has Sprung Blog Hop

Welcome to the SVG Attic-SnapDragon Snippets Spring Has Sprung blog hop! We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and Snapdragon Snippets. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists!
This is the first stop on the hop!

Here is the project I created:
A garland of Easter Eggs!  I used the 3D Eggs from SVG Attic and cut each style of egg out twice.
I used pretty pastel patterned papers and attached the eggs to Limeade Trendy Twine with tiny clothespins.
Here are a couple more closeups of the eggs...
 Wouldn't these eggs be fun in an Easter basket or as part of a centerpiece?
