Easter Egg Basket with Sand & Sea DSP

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. Our theme for this month is “Hippity, Hoppity – Easter’s on its way!”

What is the fist thing that you think about when someone mentions Easter? It has to be chocolate Easter Eggs! If you are playing the Easter Bunny, then you have to have something to put said eggs into – or better yet, dish them out in beautiful baskets that the recipient can admire once the eggs have all disappeared!

For these baskets, I used Sand & Sea DSP and Parcels and Petals stamp set for the sentiment.
The basket is really easy to make and full instructions are in my video below.

Thanks for hopping by today. Hope everyone has a happy Easter and gets lots of eggs (in baskets) from the Easter Bunny! Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Mini Ferrero Rocher Bag using Flower & Field DSP

Did you manage to watch my Facebook live earlier today?
If you didn’t, you missed out on this super cute little bag that will hold a Ferrero Rocher. It is quite deep, so it could hold any small item that you are giving for a gift.

I used Flower and Field DSP which is one of the Sale-A-Bration items for this year. The other products that you need to make this is the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Layering Circles dies. If you order these 2 products, you will be able to choose the DSP as your Sale-A-Bration item. Each bag uses a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP, so you can get 48 bags out of 1 pack of DSP!!

Inlaid Floating Technique for Valentine’s Day

Welcome to this month’s Blogging Friends Blog Hop. Our theme for this month is “Red Hot Love”! The guidelines are to make a monochromatic card using different shades of red.

I decided to try a new technique – Inlaid floating. I used the Always In My Heart stamp set and the Stitched Be Mine dies. These two are not officially coordinated, but they work really well together. I used Cherry Cobbler Poppy Parade and Real Red card stock, along with the Snail Mail DSP and the Resin Hearts from the Snail Mail suite

The video below will show you how I made this card

Thanks for hopping by today. Hope everyone has a happy (romantic) Valentine’s day and eats lots of chocolate! Be sure to hop around and see what everyone else has created
