March Lovebug Scrapbooking Blog Hop




Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops take place on the last Saturday of every month. Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our members....... or the prizes.

Our theme for March is "EASTER"

When I heard the theme for this month, I was thinking I would be able to make a scrapbook layout, with my girls in their new bunny ears, however, because I procrastinated and then spending some time in the ER with my oldest daughter, it didn't quite work out. I did have time to play with my new Tim Holtz Edge Die and made this Easter card. I am quite impressed with the edge dies, and look forward to receiving the other ones I have ordered. I used a chipboard "e", from Cosmo Cricket Buck Naked Alpha buttons (I wonder what type of traffic this is going to bring to my blog, lol) as a mask, and sprayed with Blue Skies, Meadow Green and Pink Bubblegum Glimmer mist. Now I can use that "e" on another page, by spraying it with more glimmer mist, or covering it with patterned paper or paint.At the bottom of the card, I stamped an image with Dazzle Frost VersaMark, and embossed with American Crafts Clear Embossing Powder. I just touched up the felt butterflies with some Shimmerz Pixie dust, just to give them some more dimension. Another way to dress up your felt, is to stamp on it, stitch it, or add some bling.


Supplies Used: Little Yellow Bicycle PP, Tim Holtz Plaque Edge Die, Cosmo Cricket Alpha Buttons, Glimmer mist, Heidi Swapp Felt Butterflies and Bling, KaiserCraft Pearls, Technique Tuesday "Happy" Stamp, Inque Boutique swirl stamp, Brilliance Ink-Thyme, VersaMark Dazzle-Frost, American Crafts Clear Embossing Powder, My Little Shoebox Mini Alphas, Shimmerz Pixie Dust, Making Memories Photo Corner

I am jealous of you already having some of Tim's dies. Great card. I am having my family over for Easter and then we will be having an Easter egg hunt.

Beautiful card! We are headed out of state to visit the in-laws. Kids will have fun seeing their cousins - they don't get to do it often enough being 9 hours apart.

I love the color effect!
This easter I think I will get the kids an easter egg hunt in the yard. I think I'll get them to do some kind of easter craft too.

Melissa said...

Wow, beautiful card! For Easter we will stick close to home (our family is out of state) We'll probably go to sunrise service and have a nice Easter Dinner.. with a egg hunt in between.

Great card!! Beautiful!

This year, we're having an easter egg hunt for the kiddos (with some guests!), then the "easter store" will be open for them. Probably going to host a family dinner as well. Haven't worked out the details yet, but I have at least thought for 2 seconds about a guest list - perhaps today I'll work on that detail!

Beautiful! Those butterflies look SO pretty.

Love the shimmery butterflies - they really pop off the card!

This Easter we're spending time with family - both sides. Looking so forward to having time to visit and have fun!
