Carrot Tops and Bunny Faces

Over the next couple of days at 
BELLA BLVD
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! :)

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
