Monday with Lindsay - An Eggstra Special Easter


The good ol' Easter Bunny is going to be on his way soon. I am really hoping that he has a "Photoshop for Dummies" book in his stash for me. I have to admit I am really struggling with doing even the basics. When I find a tutorial on the web that seems like it would be helpful, they must be using a different version of PS than I have because everything looks different. So, I might actually help the Easter Bunny along by placing an order on amazon.com. Once I'm there, I might as well order a few other things so I qualify for free shipping...


Speaking of the Easter Bunny, our theme for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff this week is "Easter". Lindsay as a set called Cute Easter that has a lot of fun, cute images. She also has a Word Art Freebie that coordinates with this set available FREE on her blog.


I had a lot of time to craft this week end. I'm not sure how it happened (I'm sure I forgot something important) but it felt wonderful. I messed around trying some new techniques (which I didn't quite master) and made 5 projects. That is a record for me.
'
I also have some additional exciting news. Christie Parker has joined the team and will be making her first LSS post today. Go give her some blog love.

Please take some time to see what kind of Easter projects the rest of the DT came up with.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
