Happy Easter Treat Basket

It is time for another 3D Wednesday at My Creative Time.

For my project I got my inspiration from a recent trip to Archiver's. They had these paper baskets that I've made before, but there's had something different. They had a peeking bunny over one of the edges. They had used some paper punches and hand drawn a face on theirs too. I couldn't get over the cute idea and knew that I had to make one but with Emma's dies and with a Peachy Keen Face Stamp.

To make my bunny I used Emma's Stitched Circle Die and the Stitched Oval Die. Easy peasy but cute too. I used the Cute and Cuddly 1 1/8" faces by Peachy Keen Stamps for the face. The sentiment is from Emma's To My Best Peep stamp set and the little piece I stamped on is a die from the Chunky Jar Accessories set.

If you haven't made one of these baskets before it is SUPER simple. My friend Pam made a video tutorial on how to make these a while back. Click HERE if you are interested in seeing her video. Most people make these with a 12x12 piece of paper (which requires a LOT of candy to fill it). I was going for something a little smaller and used a 6x6 piece of paper.

If you are interested in making these in different sizes I will give you some measurements below that might help you out:

*The original 12x12 size is scored at 4" and 8" (when completed the base and each side panel is 4"x4")

*For a 9"x9" piece of paper score at 3" and 6" (when completed the base and each side panel is 3"x3")

*For a 7.5"x7.5" piece of paper score at 2.5" and 5" (when completed the base each side panel is 2.5"x 2.5")

*For a 6"x6" piece of paper score at 2" and 4" (when completed the base and each side panel is 2"x2"). THIS is the size that I used for this project!

And if you want to make a really tiny one...
take a 3"x3" piece of paper and score at 1" and 2" (when completed the base and each side panel is 1"x 1")

Make sure to stop by Emma's blog and check out the other 3D projects!

Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Bridal Shower Congratulations!

Hi, I'm just popping by to share a super simple card that I made for my niece's bridal shower.

The colors are a little lighter in real life and are the colors for her wedding. The purple is really more of a lilac but you get the general idea. The polka dot paper I used is the Bitty Dots collection by PaperTrey Ink. The stamps are from the December 2012 SKOTM by Peachy Keen Stamps. I added some gemstone embellishments and used a EK Success punch for the scallops. Simple yet kind of elegant too.

Hugs- Glora

There's No BUNNY Like YOU!

Pam and I are doing our monthly cut challenge. I chose the cut this month and it was the cute little bunny in the Easter basket from the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge. I LOVE that cartridge  A LOT!

Here is my easel card shut:

And here it is open:

The card base is from the Baby Steps cartridge. I used the Cute and Cuddly Faces  (1 1/8") by Peach Keen Stamps for the bunny face. The darling sentiment comes from one of My Creative Time's original sets Color Me Happy and the shapes I stamped on are dies by My Creative Time called Curly Label Die and Stitched Curly Label Die. Besides that I did a bunch of faux stitching and added some glossy accents and VOILA!

Sports Lover Layout

Happy Monday, today we are 'Scrapping the Little Things' over at My Creative Time.

Here is a fast and fun scrapbook page that I made using My Creative Time stamps.

P.S. this is a picture of one of my darling nephews from YEARS ago. Sorry to have made you guys think that this was my little guy, he isn't quite this big yet but he is getting there :).

For this layout I used My Creative Time's Sports Sentiments, Black Belt stamp set and Soccer stamp set. Like I said simple and easy but I like it.

Make sure to check out the projects on Emma's blog. I know they will be FANTASTIC. Hugs- Glora

Sending Hugs Your Way...

It is time for another Peachy Keen Challenge and this one is Anything Goes (just make sure to use your Peachy Keen Stamps).

I've wanted to make this card for a while now. I even jotted a basic sketch of it down on a post-it note so I wouldn't forget. It is kind of an accordion style card. It looks pretty simple and unassuming from the front....

Then you open it and the story unfolds...

The gray piece on the end is so I can write a note, since that is the main reason why I would send a card anyway.

Here is a close up of each little scene (including the cover photo)...

I had a lot of fun with this card and thankfully it turned out just about the same as I envisioned it. This was made with Peachy Keen Stamps from the new release. I used the Brick Wall Background stamp for all of the brick walls. I stamped them in black on white cardstock and inked them up with Tim Holtz Distress inks. The eggs, faces, crack and band-aid all come from the March 2013 SKOTM. The feet, arms and sentiments come from the Wisecrack Sentiments Stamp set.

Make sure to check out what everyone else has made for this challenge over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog. I hope you can all join in the fun and play along too. Hugs- Glora

A Basket Full of Love

Hello, it is time for 3D Wednesday at My Creative Time.

I decided to dress up a cute little basket I've had on hand for a while. My 4 year old is in love with this blingy treat basket.

I used several dies on this basket. I used the stitched cloud dies from the Fly Away With Me Dies, the kraft colored piece is from the Just Simply Live Stamp and Die set, and the darling stitched bunny die and the sentiment are from the To My Best Peep stamp set. I love how My Creative Time products mix and match so well. I did stamp a PKS face on my bunny too. This one is from the Critter Faces Small set.

Make sure to stop by Emma's blog and see what everyone has been up to. Hugs- Glora

KBD/PKS Birthday Bash Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the KaDoodle Bug Designs and Peachy Keen Stamps Birthday Bash Blog Hop. If you came here from Elecia's blog then you are in the right spot, if not make sure to start back at the KaDoodle Bug Designs blog for the whole hop.

I am excited to have had a chance to have played with some of these darling designs. I made two 8.5" x 5.5" cards.

I just fell in love with this darling bunny peeking over this egg.

 The KaDoodle Bug Design is called Happy Easter Bunny. I used the Cute and Cuddly Face Assortment by Peachy Keen Stamps. The sentiment is from the new Baby Easter Bunny set and the sweet little design around the sentiment is from the March 2013 SKOTM. I inked all the edges of the cuts and did some doodling and faux stitching too. I used the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. The twine is from The Twinery.

For my second card I did a spring birthday card.

For this one I used the new KaDoodle Bug Designs Birthday Cake Frog. He is currently a freebie in their store. For this one I used the June 2012 SKOTM from Peachy Keen Stamps for the frog's face and for the sentiment too. I did more inking and faux stitching.

Well, I won't keep you any longer because there is a TON of fabulous stuff still ahead. There is a full list of prizes and how to earn them on the KaDoodle Bug Designs blog, so make sure you check that out. Hugs- Glora

Peachy Keen Release Party Challenges

Well the new Peachy Keen Stamps are available for purchase and aren't they the cutest? Well the release party just got over and the challenges are up over at the Peachy Keen Connection. I wanted to share what I've made for one of the challenges. I hope you will be able to join in the fun too.

I made this cute bunny tag for Nikki's Background Challenge.

Isn't she such a sweet little bunny? Kathy sure knows how to WOW us each and every month. The bunny is from the Somebunny Special stamp set. I curled up her little ear because I had seen my DT sister Miss Cindy Beland do that and LOVED how it looked. Thanks for another awesome idea Cindy. The 'Hoppy Easter' sentiment is from the Baby Easter Bunny stamp set and that fun background is another awesome background stamp. It is called Copper Ceiling Tile and it is a 4.25 x 4.25 square background stamp. It is SO pretty. The cute tag is a die from My Creative Time called Tag Dies. I also used some ribbon from my stash and some hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Well, I hope you will join in on the fun over at the Peachy Keen Connection. Hugs- Glora

Easter Eggs Layout

Happy Monday! It is time for another My Creative Time Scrappin' the Little Things

I have lots of pictures of my kids coloring easter eggs at my Mom and Dad's house and thought it would be a fun layout to make for one of my kids.

I had too much fun with this and I must admit I really love the way it turned out. I used My Creative Time's Hello Spring Stamp set for the awesome stitched egg die. I also used the Lowercase Fun Letter Dies for the letters. I inked around all of the eggs with Distress Inks and I hand cut the grass. The two eggs with faces are a sneak peek from the March 2013 SKOTM. I used some hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique for the banner and on the photo mat too.

I hope you enjoyed my layout and make sure you check out Emma's blog to see some more scrappy fun. Hugs- Glora
