Happy Easter everybody and welcome to Day 2 of the Hippity Hoppity Blog Hop by Lisa of HoneyBearz Designs! You should have arrived here from Cindy, but if you just happened upon my blog today be sure to go back and start at the beginning, as this is a 'HOP' after all! ;0) We are so happy you could join us today!
I'm super egg-cited to show you some of the Easter projects I have been working on. Everyone that knows me, knows how much I love a great holiday just for the excuse to make some more cards or crafts. I found some great inspiration on the hop yesterday and decided to try out my very first side-step card. OMGosh, I had soooo much fun making this! I wasn't feeling well and almost didn't do it, but I had an image in my head and just had to go through with it. I'm so very happy I did! :0)
Details for this project are below the pictures. (Click the pics for enlarged images.)
Fort this card I used the Cricut Craft Room software. I love that program when it works! ;) I have no problem on my Expression, but my Imagine is another story. ;p I used Create-A-Critter, Doodlecharms, Ultimate Series Creative Sampler, and Kate's ABCs (for the first time!). I think I need to get a Jukebox for the Cricut because switching out four cartridges and waiting for them to load takes a while. Not all of them can link to the Cricut Craft Room for some odd reason. Does anyone out there own a Jukebox and if so do you like it?
All the papers and cardstock are from my stash so I don't know the paper lines, unfortunately. I used several layers for everything and I'm so pleased with the effect. I decided to try out a bit more doodling than usual too and I think it turned out well. I used a brown Marvy Memories pen. I inked the papers with my Cat's Eye ink in Dark Brown and stamped the "Hoppy Easter" sentiment (Making Memories) with Basic Black by Stampin' Up. Of course I added lots of pop dots and some blue/white twine from My Craft Spot. I cannot believe how quickly this card came together! Normally it takes me forever to make a simple card and with this being my first side-step, I was amazed! I hope you all like it as much as I do. ;)
