I finally put up some Easter decorations.
I love these blue/green colors. I also love the simple pop of pink.
I was inspired by the new line of paper and elements by American Crafts, Dear Lizzie Fifth & Frolic (now available at JoAnn's). The line features refreshing and crisp blues, greens (which I obviously LOVED), pinks and yellows.
There is also absolutely delightful glitter paper.
The paper inspired several projects, including some much needed Easter decorations.
I used my Silhouette to cut out a lot of bunnies in the blues and greens and one in pink.
With the help of Mr. Elmer, I attached my bunnies to a blank canvas.
I spaced them out "evenly", or as "evenly" as I could eye ball. 'Cause that is how I roll.
I also cut out some 1/2" strips.
I glued them to a piece of cardstock paper.
On the back of the cardstock I drew an Easter egg shape.
Then I cut it out. I flipped it over and it gave me a lovely stripped egg.
I put it in a handy dandy frame from Ikea.
I had some leftover scraps of the strips, so I started punching out circles from the scraps and from another piece of pink paper.
I sewed them all together to make a little banner.
Now I have a little spot befitting a little Spring festiveness.
I have another project using this paper that I am excited to show you next week sometime if I can get my act together between two birthday parties and Easter. A sweet and lovely girly project. The kind of project I don't often get to do in this house full of boys.
Thanks for reading!
Have a fabulous day.
