I decided to make a Happy Easter card today for someone special. So I gathered some papers that coordinated.
paper I used was: card stock: light green & medium brown… patterned paper: eggs, mosaic and a Hoppy Easter paper.
I first took the light green 8 1/2 x 11 card stock sheet and folded it in half to make the base of the card.
I then cut the background paper to 5″ x 7″ and then cut 2 pieces from a medium brown card stock sheet 1 1/2″ x 4″.
On the backside of the background paper, apply adhesive at the top and the bottom and attach the 2 brown pieces.
Now i grabbed the other sheet of paper that had Hoppy Easter written on it. Cut around both words and then mounted it onto the same medium card stock used before. then again cut around that.
I had some faux grass. and decided that this would add some flare to my card. I cut off 6 blades of grass to use on the card.
using sticky dots I applied 3 blades to one side and 3 on the other.
With the last sheet of paper that had eggs printed on it. I cut out 2 large eggs and 3 small ones and also mounted it onto the medium card stock. then once the grass was on. I added the eggs and made sure 2 of the eggs covered the bottom of the blades of grass. I also added a little bling on the H in hoppy and R in Easter.
I have been so swamped since the scrapbook expo that i have been going crazy today. So I thought since I was working on some of my SnugglyBugg orders that I would share with you some of my new drawings that I will clean up a bit and make into new die cuts.
these are all die cuts that some of my customers requested.

Last but not least Hello Kitty rocking it out.

I bought a cute Orange purse 2 1/2 months ago and the straps are already tearing apart. I finally found time today to be able to mend it because I really like the purse and want to continue using it without worrying about it breaking on me while I am out.
Here is how my strap looked before:
I used DMC – F.75579 but in simpler terms Black thread. this kind of thread is thicker and is more like floss.
I started on one side of the tear and stitched to the other 🙂
Then to cover up the stitches and make it look purty again. I gathered a variety of black and orange-red buttons to stitch over the black thread.
I placed 2 orange-red buttons on each side
Then a bigger black button in the center. and there you have it a mended purse strap with a pretty result.
