Some Easter & Spring Oldies!

Looking through some old tutorials and I found some great Easter and Spring ones!

You can find the links right below them or just click on the image to see more details!

Eggcelent Box & Chick Cards

Align Center
This is the perfect gift to give anyone, big or small, for Easter!
This would also be a great gift for someone who just had a baby. You could add pink bows for a girl or blue bow ties for a boy!
The egg box flips up to open and fits three chick cards with 3” x 3” envelopes or more.
You do not need 12” x 12” paper for this project, only 8 ½” x 11”!

Star Ornament Revisited

I am such a proud Mama! Yesterday I was doing craft projects with my 9 nine year old daughter, Ashley. We were searching on Pinterest for fun stuff to do. Ashley saw a photo of something she wanted to do, and the directions were HERE on MY blog!! SO much fun. She followed the step-by-step directions that I had done years ago. So... not only did she follow my directions (with no help at all!), she changed it to make it better on her own!! So proud of this kid!!
 On the original post I said to fold the ends to attach them. Instead Ashley just overlapped the ends flat and put a paper circle over them to hide the overlapping. Much easier and looks even better!!
Here is what I originally showed in my directions:
HERE is the link to the original post with the full directions!

My Digital Studio

I now have watercolor painting GIFT CERTIFICATES available and...
 I made them using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!
This program is so great and easy to use, you can really make some beautiful stuff!
On another note... if you want to get a custom pet portrait, home painting or anything else for that hard to shop for person, but don't have a photo to go from... just get a gift certificate for the size painting that you want to give and they can choose the photo and order it themselves! You can order them for any size painting or value.

Indoor Fairy Garden

I know this is not stamping... but I just had to share my early Mother's Day gift to myself. I made an indoor Fairy mini garden to put next to my painting/craft table! It is so cute! I put it in a bird cage house sort of thing with plastic in the bottom. In the photos I have the front lifted up, but it does close down so my cat won't dig everything up!
It's not totally finished yet, but I was too excited to share photos to wait. It will also have a little wooden door for the mushroom house, a stone path and a fence. I will post again once I have those added.

Hopefully some fairies will stop by soon!
