Maiko Miwa April project Sweet Sentiments #7

Top of the mornin' G45ers,

Welcome to our blog today! It's a few days before Easter and we have some great inspiration today. Annette Green shares a Sweet Sentiments centerpiece and tutorial. Secondly, Arlene Cuevas has a great Easter card idea. Then, we round out the blog with the most stunning Sweet Sentiments Easter basket and Egg mini album by Maiko! Enjoy a beautiful day on the blog.

Don't forget about our Typography giveaway this week! Just comment here on the blog to win this craft-tastic prize pack. Deadline is tonight, so comment now!


Annette shares a really fantastic idea for your Easter centerpiece and for some great treat holders. It will definitely wow your Easter guests. The best part is that it also has a tutorial!

"Sweet Sentiments paper has such beautiful pastels and imagery for Easter, I knew I had to use it for my Easter brunch this year. The new Ivory ATC tags inspired me to create unique treat holders and a centerpiece basket for my table. Then the egg blossoms evolved due to a happy accident when I got the eggs home from the craft store. These are so much fun to make and look so pretty on my table! I hope you’ll give them a try." - Annette
