Carrot Tops and Bunny Faces

Over the next couple of days at 
we will be sharing Easter/Spring themed ideas!
I love it when I can step away from cardmaking and get in
on some everyday crafting with Bella goodies :)

Easy Bunny Face Photo Prop
Even if you don't have this particular scrolled die by Spellbinders, any fun shape would do!
 If you don't own a die-cutting machine, search the internet for shapes that you
 can print and trace :) My bunny face consists of two large punched pieces using 
Spellbinders' Labels Fourteen die and side B of the Unlimited Text paper
 glued a paper straw to one of the shapes and then sandwiched the two pieces
 together with foam adhesive in between.

My inspiration for the prop came from a pin on Pinterest:
Supplies: Molly: Unlimited Text; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Scallop;
 Crochet Hearts: Punch

 Carrot Treat Cones
 Although my kids are older (20, 16 and 12) they still expect and look
 forward to their Easter treat! These carrot cones were super simple to put together.
 Start with a 6X6 square of the Carrot Starz paper. Cut the paper from one corner to 
the opposite corner, rounding as you go. You may wish to use a template or create your
 own and then trace the design onto the patterned paper. Roll the paper into a cone
 shape and adhere at the seams with a high tack adhesive.

 For the carrot's top, I cut a 3H" X 4W" strip of green cardstock and then
 cut slits into the paper about 3/4 of the way down. Roll the ends of the strips if desired
 and then attach to the inside (back) of the cone. Decorate the front with colorful punch-outs,
 flowers and the child's initials. For display, I inserted a bamboo skewer through
 the cone and then staked them into a bucket filled with floral foam covered in excelsior. 
Fill with Easter grass and candies!

 Supplies: Lucky Starz: Carrot Starz Paper, Color Crazy Starz; Molly: Sparkle & Shine; 
Button Market: Fruit Punch, Outdoors; Sienna Chipboard Alphabet: Punch

And the bad thing about buying candy well in advance of Easter...yep,
I must go out again before Sunday and buy more!  The Kisses are gonnne...oops! :)


  1. So cool! That crochet heart nose is just so perfect. My daughter and nieces would love these to make. Thanks for sharing the idea and inspiring some easter fun.:)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
