Happy Spring!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today is design team Thursday at My Thoughts Exactly. I have a fun little card for you today that showcases the new Easter Greetings set. Even though the set is called Easter Greetings it really can be used for anything spring related! So I'm going to show you a non-Easter related way to use the set :)

Isn't it just fun and bright? If you didn't already know the Springtime collection from Echo Park is my favorite paper line right now. All of the paper is from the Springtime collection, yes even the card base :) I just love the colors and designs, they go so well with the Easter Greetings stamps too! I also used some Stampin' Up! pom pom , Trendy Twine, and a  few Epiphany Crafts shape studio flowers to embellish.  The card is a standard A2 but it folds over on the right hand side and is held closed by a little twine and a brad. The sentiment is stamped on one of the journaling cards in the Springtime collection. Here is what it looks like open.
I'm not really sure who this is going to yet so I left the inside blank. Be sure to stop by the My Thoughts Exactly blog to check out all the other design team creations today!

Happy crafting!

No Peeps Chocolate Bunny!

Hey everyone! Remember how I promised you a zipper card last week? No, ok well I did :) Anyway my spring break turned in to marathon days in the lab and spending as much time as I could outside in the fabulous 70 degree weather! Yes it was in the 70's, possibly 80 one day, up here in March!!! I have to say I'm not sad to see Spring come a little early to us this year :) Anyway, I finally finished my card and thought I'd pop in to share it with you. Before I show you the card so you remember the commercials with cows holding signs  saying eat more chicken? Well I have been playing those over and over in my head this week as I made this card...that should explain it's quirkiness a little :)

Isn't it cute? The little peeps are disguised at chocolate bunnies and they are protesting against the eating of peeps, "no peeps chocolate bunny" Oh boy I hope this is funny to someone besides me because I think it's pretty funny! As you may know the zipper card zips open to reveal a message and this is what it says: "Easter" (in that little epoxy circle that is really hard to see in this picture >.<)
And underneath "Another egg-scuse for chocolate!" I just love how this card came out! All the paper is from Echo Park's Springtime collection. The little peeps are a Free-Bee from SVG's by Bee. The  zipper card is from the lovely Lenae of Sugar Gem. Finally all those adorable little sentiment stamps are from My Thought's Exactly's Easter Greetings set.

Happy crafting,

Slider Card 'Instructions'

Did you see that cute little slider card I posted earlier? I've gotten a few inquiries about how I made it and I wasn't looking forward to trying to explain it as I was hoping the lovely lady who designed it would post it :) Well, the lovely SugarGem, who designed the card, has finally posted it on her site with a YouTube video to show you how to put it together! You can purchase the file and watch the video here! You should also check out her amazing zipper files here, I should have a card using this file up this week if all goes as planned :)

Happy crafting!

Welcome Spring Blog Hop!

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week so far. Today is the start of my SPRING BREAK!!!! It just so happens to fall on the day of the Welcome Spring blog hop with the SVG Attic design team and any customers that wanted to join us. How awesome is that?!? I am so happy you stopped by today and I hope you get just a little inspiration from the hop. If you just happened upon this post you defiantly want to start from the beginning to catch all awesome projects. If you have arrived from Nicole's blog then you are on the right track! For the hop today everyone is featuring the Welcome Spring collection. Just in case you get lost along the way here is the full lineup: <- You should have come from here.
***** ***** You are here! <- This is your next stop.

As I said everyone is using the Welcome Spring collection but you never know what everyone will combine it with! For my project I also used the Tent Cards, Birds and the Bees, and Easter Elements. Are you ready to see it? :)

Well what do you think? I think it came out pretty cute. I used the flower card from the Welcome Spring set to create the window in the tent card and all the flower accents. The peep friends are all from Easter Elements and the clouds in the background are from Birds and the Bees. I flocked the peeps for added texture and of course added a little trendy twin :) Do you see that cute little sentiment, "Hangin' with my Peeps"? It's from the new My Thoughts Exactly Easter Greetings stamp set! I thought it was the perfect sentiment for this card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Now head on over to Lisa's blog.

Happy crafting,
