The Everyday Purse Builder and the Weekender Handbag

I have a friend who asked me to create a set of handbags for her store window display.  
She picked out the papers and I happily made her a set!


The dies sure make whipping up a couple purses quick and easy compared to the old trace and cut method!
The printed papers are from Felicity Jane and the coordinating cardstock in green is from Cardstock Warehouse.
The yellowish cardstock is Stardust and the black glitter paper on the sunglasses and heart padlock  is from the Neutrals Glitter Pack

Lovely Blossoms From The Greetery

How about these pretty blossoms!  
I love the size of these, nice big flowers. This set is full of pieces and parts to build several size flowers and the set comes with an easy to use road map that tells you exactly where to stamp each piece.

Lovely Blossoms was in the last release for The Greetery and I'm just getting to use it.  I spent the majority of one day making beautiful blossoms and enjoying the process. 

Lovely Blossoms Stamp Set and Dies

It was a little overwhelming with all the choices for arrangements, so I used the Lookbook for this set on The Greetery website and sort of copied a few cards from there.  
I love that she has a Lookbook for every set!


The background for this card is the beautiful Brick Layer Die.  It's two little dies that you can place where you want for easy custom break away brick look.

I'm ready for spring, Idaho...come on, you can do it!  It's a sunny 29 degrees while I'm writing this, but I know it's coming!
In the meantime, I put up my Easter tiered tray of pinks, bunnies and all the spring things.  


My tier tray is from Felt Creative Home Goods and can be found HERE.


These are the wood pieces in this months tiered tray subscription kit.  It comes with different colors, but of course I painted mine to match my decor, which is the beauty of painting your own!

The free gift this month is a 4 pack of carrots shown lose in this photo, they are so cute with their green jute!  


Top tier: Rae Dunn cup with flowers.  White wood bunnies from Sweet Oak Shop on Etsy. They're sitting on a 5" stand riser. 

Bottom tier: Marshmallow mug with a bunny hat from VinVan Knits
House with pink roof is from The Lob. 
Ladder is the 9" ladder, bunny and wooden pieces from this months kit. 


Pink basket is from Target Dollar Spot.  Carrots are from The Lob.

Spellbinders Large Die of the Month

The March Large Die of the Month for Spellbinders is an interactive die set!  You can make all the characters move, dance and wiggle.  
I have a short video after each card so you can see the movement.


This months die is called Spring Together and has everything you need to make the cards I've made here.
I started off easy by just making the bunny move, but it was seriously the easiest thing ever so I went all in for the next one.






Here I have all three of them moving and dancing.  
The design on this die set is perfect, you don't have to do anything 'extra' to make it work.

Easter Buddies Card

Today's card is using products from the latest Honey Bee Stamps Spring Bliss Release.  I love bunnies and there are some super cute ones in this release.  
I mixed the bunnies and eggs together for this bright and colorful Easter card.

The background is stenciled with the new Basketweave Stencil and Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink.
The bunnies are from the Easter Buddies Stamps and Dies.  I cut them out with the solid egg shape die in the Build An Egg die set
The Here Comes the Easter Bunny sentiment is from the Hoppy Easter sentiment set stamps and dies


I laid the eggs out on the card front and decided kind of the direction and spacing so I would know how many I needed and then colored them with Copic markers. 


Easter Buddies Stamps and Dies



There is so much spring and Easter goodness in this release, I hope you check it out!

Bunnies and New Tier Tray Essentials

How do you like your peeps?  
I could answer that a few different ways...like, alive and breathing and NOT the marshmallow type? *Ü* 

Well, today we're talking about wood peep style bunnies and other wood things for you to paint and enjoy in your home decor.  I love supporting other crafters, especially local crafters and when I find something I love, I like to share with all of you.
  
My friend Michelle, from Idaho Custom Creations, the one who is creating the fabulous Tiered Tray monthly subscription kit that I LOVE, has a few new products in her store. 
Speaking of which, you are going to love the Easter tray subscription kit.  I will be showing it here on the March 3rd. 


Peep style Mini Bunnies - you get a baggie of 15 of these little cuties for just $5!  




These 2" wood bunnies are made of 1/4" maple wood and paint like a dream!


I may have painted quite a few!  I'm going to include them in a few Easter goodies this year.  
I love the fun, bright colors, but for my home decor, I like things that are a bit more neutral.  So MY bunnies got a coat of  Warm White paint and a dip in some dark finishing wax.

I know you're going to ask...the mini shopping carts can be found HERE



If you would like some bunnies of your own, here is the photo you're looking for on her website

You know how much I love my tiered tray, so I was super excited when she introduced a line of risers.  My tiered tray is recessed, so I have to set smaller thing on blocks and such to get them to show above the rim.  These are PERFECT!


They come unfinished so you can stain or paint to match your decor.  
Stand Risers and Ball Foot Risers in 4" and 5".


I painted my Stand Risers Warm White, put pink stripes on the taller one and them waxed them with dark finishing wax. I used Frog Tape to mask off the areas for the stripes.  
The Ball Root Risers, I painted Neutral Gray and antiqued those too.



The ladders are a fun accessory!  You put them on the edge of your tray and they lean against the next tier. All trays are different sizes, so she has the most common 3 sizes in her store.  My tiered tray needs the 9" to lean from the bottom tray to the top tray.

 They stand alone or you can add a little something sitting on the ladder. 
Tiered Tray Ladders in 5", 7" and 9".  Prices range from $3.99 - $5.99 each.

Let me know if you add some new pieces to your home decor, I'd love to see a photo or tag me on Instagram!
