Easter Basket Update

I managed to get a picture of the fence basket treat that I made the other day, just some of the goods were already gobbled up.

I used the 3D Fence Basket file (#40671) from the Silhouette online store and then added the bunny from the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Hoppy Easter cut file.

I filled the basket with a assortment of goodies, I thought the carrot bubbles were cute. I also added some pb cups decorated with the Jaded Blossom Easter Candy set.

I love all of these companies and their creations that allow my imagination to flow... that is when I have some time for crafting.

Happy Easter!

Hope everyone's Easter was filled with family, friends, new memories and of course chocolate :) As a child I remember waking up on Easter morning and following the bunny prints around the house searching for clues to the next hidden treasure that the Easter bunny had brought.  It was so much fun! I still like to hide treats around the house.

So today I wanted to share with you a few treats that I made for Easter.

The first picture are some pb cups using one of my favorite kind of stamps from Jaded Blossom, Candy Stamps!

These are from the Easter candies set and colored with Copics. I added these to another treat that I made but didn't get a picture of. Oops!

I was at Michaels the other day and they had a really, really, really good sale on paper crafting items, so I just had a get myself the Fiskars  Corrigated Paper Crimper heeheee :)

So these are the first sour cream treat containers that I've made with my new crimper. I filled them with Jolly Rancher Jellybeans and Easter M&M's.

I am pleased with the way they turned out and boy are they fast to make :)

Then I made some Peeps on a stick, found this idea somewhere on Pinterest. I used short bamboo skewers and added 3 Peeps, placed them in a bag and tied a tag on with ribbon.

The sentiment on my tag says " For A Special PEEP" I got this stamp in the $1.50 bin at Michaels and stamped it in Brilliance Lime ink to give it that sparkle like the sugar on the peeps.

I stuck them into a 3D Fence Basket #40671 that I got in the Silhouette Online store and then added the bunny painting eggs from the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Hoppy Easter Cutting file.

Have a great day and don't eat too much chocolate!

Baby Shower Favors

Warning: This post is picture heavy but really adorable.

So today I'm going to share the favors that my friend's sister Katherine and I made for the baby shower.

Katherine made these adorable diaper favors and filled them with yummy candies.

I went to Michaels and purchased some baby bottles and ribbon. I picked up a bunch of Hershey Kisses and used several Jaded Blossom Candy Stamps, as well as a Hero Arts stamp for the bottom of each kiss. I then added some gift basket shred in blue and popped in the kisses.

I made the tag with the print and cut feature on my Cameo.

For the first kiss I used Brilliance Coffee Bean Ink and the little hedgehog on the Hero Arts Precious Baby Boy stamp set.

All the rest of the kisses I used Jaded Blossom Candy stamps.

For this one I used the Mustache Candies set, also stamped in Coffee Bean.

Here I used the Valentine Candies set with Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme ink.

The next set I used was the Baby Candies stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme and Sky Blue.

 The last set I used and this is my favorite of all the kisses I made is from the Kawaii Candies set stamped in Coffee Bean.

LOL... I love this little poop :)

As with any shower we played a bunch of fun games but the game I loved the most was this:

I used Google to find some games and saw this one and I just had to include it in all the fun! I made the sign and the poop ballot using my computer and printer and then stamped the little poop all over!

Then came the fun part making the poop combos and letting everyone try to guess which chocolate bars I used to make them. LOL this was so funny I couldn't stop laughing, this is a must play game for a shower.

 One of the other games we played was What's in your purse? I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Safari Love Cutting files and printed out a header for this game.

What a great time everyone had at the shower. It took a while to make everything but I had so much fun creating everything and using all the different files and stamps and of course did I mention that I LOVE my Cameo :)
