Happy Easter Bear Basket Card


Here's a fun little Easter card I made from KaDoodle Bug Designs cuts.  So cute.  The little bear was originally a brow bear and I just cut him in black.  He makes a cute little black bear too!  The Easter items were from a retired bunny set I got from them a few years ago too!  I like to use different animals than the traditional Easter ones sometimes.  I think this looks very Eastery without a bunny or chick!

You're Sweet Layout




I love this one!  Remember when I said I cut several of everything. Well, I needed a secret sister gift for a retreat I am going on and decided to do one of the glass ice cream containers with a bath scroungy in it so I cut a cherry to go on top.  Then I thought, wouldn't it be cute to make a title that I could use and make more cherries and put them around the gift on the bed for fun then she could make a scrapbook page with the cuts and they would serve as decorations.  Well, since I always cut 2 titles and as many of everything else as would fit on my paper, I had cherries and a title to go on a page.  They look so cute with my left over watermelon cuts!  A perfect match.  I love mixing and matching patterns!  The cherry is actually the top of an ice cream cone from Miss Kate Cuttables and the You're Sweet title is from KaDoodle Bug designs.  The watermelon came from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs and lastly the little bear is a leftover cut from either KaDoodle Bug Designs or Scrapping Bug Designs....I can't remember as I cut them a couple of years ago!  LOL.  Anyway, I love this page even if for some reason the color are off.  The bottom one is the closest.  Strange but cute anyway!







You're Sweet Ice Cream Gift


I don't know why the coloring of this is so off, but....you get the idea.  I am headed to a scrapbooking retreat and each day we do a gift for a secret sister.  I had seen these online somewhere and decided to make one.  After making the cherry for the top, I thought, "Wouldn't it be fun to make a few more and a title that would be used as decorations when I give it to her but that she could use on a scrapbook page herself?"  So, having cut extras anyway, I set out to find a title.  KaDoodle Bug designs had already created this You're Sweet title so I just welded and cut it.  The cherry's are from an ice cream cone from Miss Kate's Cuttables.  So cute.  I hope she likes it.  One day down, 3 more to go!  







Yellow Monochromatic Card


I love these flowers and leaves with this premade card base.  Simple yet nice.  These are Miss Kate Cuttable files from a fall title and fall bird set.  So cute!

Family Fun Layouts 1 and 2



Ok, so the other day I was playing on pinterest and found another Out on a Limb scrapbook page that I liked.   I thought the colors and the trees were adorable.  So I set off to make my own version of it.  Here is their version.  Cute isn't it.  I like mine too!  Love the colors.  Isn't it fun!  


Then I still had more pictures so I just did a simple page that will follow the first one in my book.  Anyway, love the results!  I just used the basic shapes from my MTC program and stole the stump from another tree I had.  I even had a little hedgehog left over from some I cute from  a file from Too Cute by Jessica and he looks just as cute on my page.  The little 4-wheeler is a Little Scraps of Heaven leftover cut too.  Love it when I can put these extras to use!

Spring/Easter Baby Birds Layout


Do you ever cut something out just because you thought it was adorable?  I admit, I rarely do.  I tend to only cut and spend time on cuts that I need for a page or a project.  However, I couldn't resist today and this has turned out to be one of my favorite layouts that I have done in a while.  Just because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those little birds in the nest.  I thought it would be perfect for Easter.  Lately I've been using a lot of cute little birds and lovin' them.  Not so much into owls like everyone else, but just cute little birds.  For this project, over at Miss Kate's Cuttables, they gave us this little freebie nest with eggs in it and in their buy it section, they came out with a nest with little birds in it.  I fell in love with those little birds and noticed that the shape of the bird was the same as the "It's your special day" bird that I had recently purchased.  So, I cut my little freebie nest that they gave us, added my "It's your special day" birds and then took the branch from another one of their files and voila!  I now have my own little version of their adorable file made with all their adorable files that I already had.   So so cute!  When I cut, I always cut extras - as many as will fit on the paper and so I have some little birdies left which fit  nicely on top and then grabbed some leftover flowers for the top corner and done.   Now I just need some pictures to put on it LOL.  And that is why I rarely do layouts without pictures first!  I'm not to worried because I know I will have some Easter pictures that would love to hang out on soon!  Some projects are just better than others and for me, this is one of those.   Anyway, now I'm off to go play with the left over cuts and see what other layout I can come up with!
