Easter 2012 Layout by Judy S.


Don't you love working with the new color combinations for Spring this year? So many new papers with quite interesting colors!  I am a firm believer in buying Designer Pads and not having to second guess if colors go together. 

The doily's are a newly released file: Tulips Doily . I cut 3 of thesesizing them to 4 inches each.  Since these have a lot of details, I cut on a 1 speed and 2 force with K/O at 12.  If your mat isn't very sticky, use 2 passes.


I then cut the newly released Popcut Bunny Egg using the same settings as above. I used the Card Band Lace for a border and added a few Popcut Butterflies.  


I then cut out the title using one of my Funtime software fonts.  I designed this special flower and named it "Parker" after my great-granddaughter. 

Thank you for looking!

Easter Mini Album by Judy Stark


I like to make myself a separate book throughout the year for special occasions and holidays.  It's fun to bring out all of the previous Easter books and everyone see how much they have grown! 
I also make these for my daughter's to put their special pictures into.  This books' base completed size is
 5" by 7" and you can easily add more pages if needed.

For the bottom of the front page, I used the newly released scallop card border and Tulips by Oliver Myers .  For my title, I used a font in our Funtime, used the outline feature and cut with my Gazelle. Anytime you are using a font that is too skinny, you can also click the outline feature button and substitute the outline.

I used the basket from the Bosskut file: Easter Basket, Bunny and Eggs.  I cut the eggs and decorated and hide them in the Popkut grass. To make the front page of my mini album, I used the BK silhouette bunny by Karen Taglia and adjusted the size accordingly to appear the bunny is sitting on top of my egg basket.

Easter Bags

With Easter being next month, I thought I best get busy making bags for my family.  I usually fill these with Easter grass, then add a few plastic eggs and the candy. These are also great for gift giving!

    I  cut my bag pattern and extended the size to cut 12" by 12".  The finished bag size ends up being 7 inches tall by 4 inches wide. I then measured and cut the newly released Tulip Doily, Popcut Border grass and Froggie the PK Frog. I then used my Bosskut Gazelle pen feature and wrote the title on the egg.  I cut and hid some eggs in the grass and done!  Very easy and quick project to do.

 I made this bag the same as above but used the newly released Heart Swirls Frame, PopKut Border Grass and the Bosskut BunnySilhouette by Karen Taglia.
    I again used the pen feature and use my glue pen and then added glitter to my title.
