Easter Collection

Have been busy doing my Easter samples.  Got off to a good start at Ronda's retreat this past weekend.  We did all the boxes and my new Easter card there so just had to come home and make more.

Cased Easter Card

Ronda had a large table full of cards that we could case while we were there and this was one of the ones that I chose.  The picture on the left is of the outside of the card and the picture on the right is what I did for the inside of the card.  I just love all the spring colors.  This was not a quick card to make but well worth the effort when done.  You have to quess what punch that I used for the tulip buds......... Okay I will tell you it is the wing from the new 2 step bird punch, who would of guessed, not me!

Bunny Boxes

Ronda did these bunny boxes as an extra project and I was so glad because I was going to go to Tamie's blog and get the directions when I got back to make them.  I changed mine a little by adding the stitch marks.  I created a boy bunny with the gray and give him floppy ears then  changed some of the colors.  Also my sister Sandi added a tail. I took these down to lunch yesterday and sold two boy bunnies. I also added the handle and did not put the top note on the backside of the box so you could put your hand inside the box easier.  With the handle on it was harder to get inside to get the candy in and out.

Triangle Baskets

This was another project we did and we got directions for three different sizes this is the medium size.  This basket is very quick and easy to make in just a very shot time.  I like the triangle and different shape of it.  I sold the purple one in the front yesterday at lunch for $3.00 to my friend Clara.  She is another purple lover like me. I always have to make at least one purple and one pink of everything.

Scallop Envelope Baskets

Don't you just love all the pretty colors.  Can you tell I am a bold bright person? Lastly we did these scallop envelope baskets out of the big shot die.  One of our gifts in our $60 goodie package was a pack of Sweet Pea Designer Paper and it came in handy with all these baskets.


  1. I am so glad you posted the tulip card as I so loved that at Ronda's. I didn't know you were doing it, but saw the others. I will be casing that at my next class if I can fit it in with the others I want to do. I must be partial, as I love my tail in oval, but love your droopy ears. The scalloped envelope baskets are gorgeous -- love that sweet pea paper!

  2. You did a great job of casing. You sure have been busy. You are right about the Sweet Pea D.P. The more I see it the more I like it. I like the bunny basket that you made but I have to agree with Sandi as I do like the cotton ball for the tail. TFS
