Easter Bunny Box

I made a little Easter Bunny Box using a pattern I found on the Silhouette website. It’s fast and easy! (Sorry I can’t post the actual pattern to the box, that infringes their copyright rules.) The link is to purchase the box pattern is HERE.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

Here’s a total CASE from one of my team members, Patti Galegher! She was inspired by a t-shirt she saw at the Christian bookstore that she works at! One of my favorite Easter cards, reminding us it’s not all about the bunny.

Easter Basket with Berry Basket Die

Last weekend was the Spring Extravaganza! We had such a fun time and I am excited to share the projects with you! Thank you for all of you who attended!
Here’s one of the projects we made – an Easter basket featuring the Berry Basket die! Included with this project is a banner with bow on top, sour cream “carrot” container for treats, a little “Chick Pick”, and a bunny adhered to the side of the basket.

Easter Bunny Card

Here’s an early Easter card we did at my Girl’s Day/Night Out class this month. I saw Laura’s card HERE and knew I wanted to CASE parts of it! That is how this card evolved. I added an actual punched hole (1 3/4″ circle punch) to the card front, and then added the bunny face on the INSIDE of the card!

Recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Delightful Dozen, Woodgrain Background
  • Paper: Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP
  • Ink: Soft Suede, Blushing Bride
  • Accessories: Punches: Small and Medium Oval (feet and ears), 1 3/4″ Circle (hole and bunny body), Bo-Ho Blossom (bunny tail), Cupcake (small circles for bunny eyes), 3/4″ Circle (cheeks and small part of circle for bunny nose), Ornament (face), Dimensionals (happy easter sign), linen thread

Notes: Use sponge daubers to ink around all punched edges. Fold edges of tail forward to give it a 3-D look. Draw small ovals with Blushing Bride marker on bunny paws.

Happy Easter!

Here are some photos of egg decorating this year! We decided to have an egg decorating contest in our family this year. Here are some of the creations we came up with!

Happy Easter Treat!

I had to hurry and post this CASE before Easter is here! There’s a lot of these little bunny/carrot treats all over blogs. The first one I saw was found HERE. Theresa Vargas is the creator, but I couldn’t find a personal blog for her.

I also made a “cheat sheet” to help with the punches that were used to create this bunny treat.

March weSTAMP Swaps

Our weSTAMP group met this month, and what a great time we had! Look at the treats Terri brought! Not only is she an awesome creative papercrafter, you can see she has the gift of BAKING as well!!! These are Lemon Coconut Peeper Cookies! I love how she presented the cookies in the Easter basket (with SU ribbon at the top, of course!) I have added Terri’s recipes (after receiving many emails requesting it!) Here it is! 1 box of Lemon Cake Mix (any brand) 1/3 cup oil 2 eggs 1 cup unsweetened flake coconut 24 butterscotch chips 48 miniature semisweet chocolate chips Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl combine cake mix, oil and eggs; beat until well mixed. Place coconut in shallow bowl. For each cookie, shape dough into one 1-1/2 inch ball and one 1/2 inch ball. Roll each ball in coconut; place on ungreased cookie sheet with smaller ball touching larger ball. Place cookies 1-1/2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes or until coconut just begins to brown. Immediately press 1 butterscotch chip for beak and 2 mini chocolate chips for eyes into smaller ball of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet. Makes 24 cookies. To go along with the Coconut theme, she made a YUMMY Coconut cake!!! Isn’t that a cute little sign to let us know what kind of cake it was?
We start the evening off with a make and take. Peggy was our volunteer for this. This is a beautiful 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ card using the set Easter Blossoms.

Peggy also did our 3 mn. demo for the evening. She showed us how to make a coordinating envelope to fit our 4 1/4″ card.

To make this envelope, first seal it shut. Then you cut off about 1″ of one side of the envelope. That will become the top of the envelope. Then cut a piece of DP the same width of your envelope by 2″. Score this piece at 1 1/4″ (on the long side). Tape the shorter side of the DP to the FRONT side of the envelope as shown below.
Here is a photo of the backside of the envelope. Round the corners of the 2″ piece. This is the backside of the envelope with the flap up.

This is the backside of the envelope with the flap down.

THANKS Peggy! We all LOVED your project!
