Easter Projects & GIVE AWAY

I spent time this weekend working on two projects.  One wasn’t exactly an “epic fail” as my kids would say but it wasn’t a super winner either.  Sometimes you can save an epic fail by taking a great picture of it.  Well, this weekend wasn’t my time for that either.  My photos, nearly all of them, were definite “epic fails”.  Today I will try taking my projects outside and getting some shots that way.  Hopefully, without sneezing my head off and getting a bunch of shots of my own feet or camera strap.  Hmmm, maybe I should get a pedicure just in case.  Always err on the side of your toes being seen.  LOL!

If you’ve missed these Easter projects that I did last year, you might want to check them out:

We're the best of Peeps.

 I used one of Lori Whitlock’s cut files along with my Silhouette SD (before I got the Cameo) and made a mirror that turns people into Peeps!  You can see more photos and information here.

Don't eat that chocolate rabbit. It's vinyl!

Using the Kate’s ABCs Cricut Cartridge, I created this vinyl canvas art.  Yep!  You can use vinyl on canvas you just have to prep the canvas first. 😉  More info and photos on that here.

You have to see this finished project!

 Hot glue, some dollar store flowers and a few other very inexpensive things made the prettiest Easter basket that you just have to see!  Click HERE to see the completed Easter basket.  Um, yeah.  I did get my full $1’s worth out of those flowers by using them in this project and as decorations in the vinyl canvas project.  LOL!


Leave a comment telling me what crafty thing you wish you would find in your Easter basket.  On, Friday, March 30 I’ll use Random.org to choose a winner for a $25 Gift Certificate to Custom Crops.com!  Woo hoo!  Custom Crops sells lots of crafty things so be sure to check them out.

Happy Easter! Your projects are just amazing!! I found your blog through a friend of mine and am enjoying backreading all your great ideas. I also signed up for your newsletter so I don’t miss anything 🙂 I’m not really sure what I’d pick for my Easter basket – I’m pretty easy to please and love to scrapbook and make cards so anything would make me happy. Thank you for having such an awesome blog and awesome projects!

    I would LOVE to find an assortment of gel pens/markers and if we’re talking a SUPER generous Easter Bunny (hehehe) I would want a Cuttlebug machine and a few folders to get started. I really want to get into embossing and love all the projects I see with it done. THANKS for the chance at the giveaway!

  16. If the Easter Bunny is listening….remember: I am the queen of bling, any size and type. Glitter is my friend and gaudy is my middle name. I like the kind you can wear AND the kind that goes on my layouts so I am easy to please! LOL!

  17. lewistruth says:

    Easter is such a fun time, and Spring is the BEST! It does make me want to be all crafty. I always love new tools, pretty papers, Cricut cartridges, embossing folders, and on and the bunny can hop!! Doesn’t the bunny like to shop til he drops?

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  25. Thank you for the pretty Easter inspiration.
    I so wish that I would find a Silhouette Cameo in my Easter basket. I have been drooling over this machine for sometime now. As I look at all of these blogs and see the fantastic creations I want it even more.

  26. Hi Easter Bunny… I sooo wish you could bring me a CAMEO in your Easter Basket. It might be a bit bulky, but I guarantee it won’t have any calories or give you a tooth ache. Smooches… Felicia (lol)

  27. Joy I always love your projects. I wish I could find the cure for cancer in my basket but since that is not going to happen I hope to find some great stamps in my basket. Thanks for the chance to win.

  29. meredeEnA says:

    The crafty thing I’d like to find in my Easter basket would be have to be … well, if I have to pick one it would probably be the Letter Envy Cricut cartridge. I had to think about scrapbooking suppplies since I spent 2011 devoted to making every card I gave and have to wrap my head around the fact that I’m not doing that this year, so I will have time to scrap and should be focusing on tools to do that! Thanks for asking!

My easter basket…. weel I have a couple of Cricut cartridges on my wish list like the Cottage Garden for example…. or some MS punches… or some new stanp sets. I’m not to hard to please since I enjoy playing with new toys/tools anytime.

  42. helenastreet says:

    I hope to find a chocolate easter bunny in my basket along with some delightful crafty items. I’d really love some Echo Park paper, some new Joy’s Life stamps, a Cricut cartridge or two and a blank check made out to my local scrapbook store!

  43. brwneyes46 says:

    I would like to find one of you crafty ladies in my Easter basket this year…..just like a coupon for a one on one inspiration session!! that would be the greatest! but if not, just twine. I see lots of posts using twine and I have yet to do so. thanks for asking.

  44. mehlbaums says:

    My Easter basket would be over flowing if I wished for a Cameo but I’m sure there would be plenty of room for those really cool Sew Ribbon punches that I’ve been craving. They really caught my eye with all of the different designs that would really spice up a scrap layout.

  45. goldilost says:

    I would like lots of colors of bakers twine in my Easter Basket this year. Love the peeps mirror! Great idea!

  46. What wouldn’t I like to find? LOL I guess if I had to pick, stamps. Either images, or of course your stamps.

  47. In my Easter Basket I would love to find some Tim Holtz distress ink pads and refills or the new Teen Cricut Cartridge can’t remember exact name off hand.

  48. I’d like to see some Cinch supplies in my Easter Basket or the new Paper Doll Teen Scene cricut cartridge. Joy’s Life stamps would be a very nice surprise as well.

  49. Gosh any scrapbook supplies in my Easter Basket, Birthday gift (in April as well) or even mother’s day would take me totally by surprise because my husband would never think to do that. So it would have to come from me and I am not very good at being surprised when I put it there. HEHE ~but I do try to put on a show for the kids.

    Anyway I would like the new or old Tags bags boxes and more cricut cartridge and any other goodies!!!!
    God bless,
