BLOG HOP FUN!!
I am soooo EXCITED it is HERE!!!! The Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!! It is my first one! No idea what to expect other then alot of FUN and INSPIRATION!! I plan to put dinner in the crock pot and just blog hop away!! I tried to stay off the computer so I wouldnt feel bad being glued to this seat for 2 hours! :) Blog hop starts at 8pm Eastern (5pm for me!)
So the challenge was to make something SPRINGY!! What can be more springy then BASKETS!!! :) I am in LOVE with Lauren Meaders My Timeless Templetes I have 6 of them and cant stop buying them! HA HA!! :)
For this first one I used the patter as it was.. printed it on Sweet Blush CS then I inked the edges with Vintage Cream Ink (on a side note I LOVE this color! oh my!) then put it all together!! I punched the squares with my punch.. added the tiny holes to each scallop to give it a frilly doilyish look! Inked the edges with Sweet Blush Ink... added a scallop border on the bottom (fiskars threading water punch).. Tied Sweet Blush Ribon added some flowers, a stamped sentiment using the NEW Tags for spring set and tada.. a cute little basket!
Somedays life or in this case a girls PRINTER... gives her LEMONS.. so what is she todo.. make Lemonade!! I couldnt get my printer to print on my CS yesterday.. and I sooo wanted to make another basket! SOOOO I just printed it on reg. printer paper and cut it out, using that as a pattern on my CS..!! Here is ANOTHER version of Laurens basket!!
For this one I used Aqua Mist CS, Ink (inked all edges again!), and ribbon (around candy!) I cut the top down a bit, and didn't add a handle to this one! I added a bit of scallop border (fiskars apron lace punch) punched using the shimmer white CS (this is so pretty! I used it for all my tags too!) added some tiny white flowers, and add liquid pearls all around the top and bottom of the basket!! :) Added the duckie and candy treat.. I know my girl is gonna be taking this from me! :)
and one more little tiny share.. because sometimes cuteness just HOPS in my basket... I so LOVED this bunny (and the above chicky!) got both at Target in the dollar spot.. HOW do you not get them!!! My dear sweet DH is gonna think I should walk away.. but sometimes a girl NEEDS cuteness! HA HA!! So I stamped up a little tag added it to some candy kisses.. and there ya go cuteness in 5 minutes! and less then $2! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by! I am so looking forward to all the BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS that will be shared.. even if you arent playing along pop over to Papertrey Ink Blog Hop click on some of the blogs and ENJOY!!
