AWH Blog Hop: Easter


Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some Easter projects, seeing as Easter is only about 3 weeks away!
Saleabration is a great time to join or place a $90 order to get extra free items – ask me how!
Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. Now let’s get started!

I don't really send Easter cards, so after a lot of thinking about what I could do instead of a card, I decided to scrap a layout of an Easter from my childhood. I rummaged through my box of photos, and found this gem from around 30 years ago. My sisters and I are wearing blue and pink nighties, which tied in beautifully with the colours in the Falling In Love DSP.

I had to laugh, as my sisters and I each got a Humpty Dumpty egg. They are still around now, and my children regularly receive them at Easter. In fact, I went to a Chicks at the Flicks movie last night and received a sample one in my goodie bag!

I also laughed, as I had to date this photograph based on my haircut! I dragged out my old school photos, and based on those it had to be either 1986 or 1987.

I haven't journalled on this layout yet. I have typed up the text on a Project Life card, however what I thought looked blue actually turned out more of a green and didn't look right on the page. Sadly, my typewriter ribbon ran out, so I have to wait for my new one to arrive so that I can add the text.

I cut this 'sweet' from Cupcake Cutouts Framelits many months ago at my friend Kathryn's house. I cut it in Whisper White, which wasn't going to work on this layout. No problem - I just grabbed my trusty Sponge Brayer and my Sweet Sugarplum inkpad, and hey presto! A Sweet Sugarplum title! I love that the brayer has given it a textured look, very different from if I'd cut it with SS card stock.

Did you know that butterflies are a symbol of Easter? I certainly didn't until I Googled symbols of Easter while I was brainstorming for my project. The life cycle of the butterfly reflects the story of Jesus over the Easter period. You learn something every day!

That's it from me for now, but next on the list is Rachel Woollard. She's bound to inspire you with her creativity!
