It's almost Easter, so we wanted to share two more great Easter ideas in the knick of time! Joanne Bain and Donna Espiritu bring us the inspiration today!

First, Joanne has a great idea for a beautiful Easter scene!

"With Easter coming up I wanted to create something super cute. I decided to create a nativity scene using my favourite collection Once Upon A Springtime. I am in fussy cutting heaven with this collection, the little character images are so cute and perfect to create a little easter story." ~Joanne

The May Arts & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 3

  Mini _ Policy Envelope, Enchanted Forest, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45  (1)

Are you having a blast this week? We know we are. May Arts Ribbon and G45 are a match made in heaven! Their designers and our Design Team have been knocking it out of the park so far this week. Well, the fun doesn't end here. Today, Maggi Harding, Danielle Copley, and Solange Marques have three perfect projects  using G45 Staples, paper, and May Arts Ribbon for us today. Let's get into the fun!

 

Join the May Arts Ribbon & Graphic 45 Blog Hop March 21-25, 2016 #graphic45
First, Maggi wows with our new Staples and Enchanted Forest. We are loving this combo. Gorgeous gorgeous!

"My design team box came the other day and it was packed to the rim with new staples and papers, it was a little slice of heaven for sure!  I was having a scrappy weekend at my house, so five of my scrappy bff's got to watch me unpack my box. Yep, they all turned green with envy as I removed each item from what seemed like a bottomless box of scrappy goodies!  I immediately zeroed in on the Enchanted Forest collection and all the wonderful new Staples!

Enchanted Forest has great sentiments on its cut-aparts that work great for a wedding so I created a tiny mini that would fit inside the regular sized Policy Envelope.  It'll be a great mini/card to include with a shower or wedding gift.   The mini is just two pieces of  8 3/4" x 6 3/4" black cardstock folded in half to create 4 pages, giving the mini 8 pages counting fronts and backs.  Then I punched two tiny holes in the center, on the fold, and bound the mini together with a 1/4" piece of May Arts silk ribbon.  I put photo mats in the mini as well as tags for journaling.

The mini  fits nicely inside the Policy Envelope that I embellished with a Kraft Imagine Tag.  I backed the Imagine cut out with black paper so that the Imagine word would really stand out, and then I used some cut-aparts and patterned paper to embellish the tag.   I added some interest to the cut-aparts by die cutting one of them with a Spellbinders frame.  Finally I added a pretty bow that I tied with May Arts silk  and leaves ribbons and glued the tag to the front of the Policy Envelope." ~Maggi

Now, Danielle shares a beautiful Easter candy box using Children's Hour and our Small Matchbook Box. This is perfect for this coming Sunday!

"Using a Graphic 45 Matchbook Box, I created a fun Easter box for candy. The March sheets of Children’s Hour provided beautiful images to create a layered scene. I love layering multiple bits of fussy cuts of the same image to add a 3-D effect to my little scene. The scene is inspired by traditional Easter activities of children sitting in the grass after Easter egg hunting. Beautiful May Art ribbons add a festive effect and their unique leaf ribbon is so perfect for surrounding the birds nest." ~Danielle

Easter Delights with Graphic 45!

  Happy Easter Pocket Graphic 45 Precious Memories Ginny Nemchak 1

Easter is coming up soon, so we want to leave you with tons of inspiration! Today, Ginny Nemchak and Belly Lau have two fabulous ideas for this Spring holiday. We hope we fill your Friday with lots of great ideas for Easter!

First, Ginny has a cute set of tags in a beautiful pocket that she can fill with notes and Easter sentiments. What a great idea!

"It’s no secret I’m a sucker for lovely little pockets chock full of tags. Not only is it a wonderful seasonal  decor item..but a thoughtful way to give gift cards to an entire  family. Simply add them to the tags and after they receive their gift..they can add pictures and journaling to the tags to remember the special holiday they  shared with you : ) These tags have sweet children with bunnies and lambs and flowers all layered on bright and cheerful paper patterns. I combined Precious Memories with Baby 2 Bride for the perfect amount of shabby and holiday." ~Ginny
