Cute St. Pats and Easter Ideas!

Hi Everyone,

First, please note
A new stamp update is at the end of this post if you are interested.

I thought I would post some cute ideas here for Saint Patricks day and Easter. It's funny how when your kids get older you can lose track of the holidays, or maybe it's because we work so far in advance (I've been working on Summer, Halloween and Christmas products this week) and then realized St. Pats and Easter are almost here!

Michele Kovack is our guest designer this month and I love this St Pats decoration she made using an image from our Joys of Life Booklet. Michele used paper from our Earthy Paper Pad. I love the 4 leaf shamrock she made using 4 little green hearts she punched out

If you already have our Seasonal Booklet and you missed the free Saint Patricks Day 'Tea Bag Card' project last year. you can get the instructions and see 2 tea bag card ideas on our website under free projects here

You can also see the sample of the St. Pats tea bag card Vicki Chrisman made here. You simply make a little pocket to hold a tea bag on the front of a card and it's a fun idea for a friend.

Here is an adorable Easter house Michele Kovack created using our Sweetchips Folding House, papers from our Classic and Pastel Paper Pads. Not only did she use the windows and door, she also decorated one of the birds, plus the other set of chipboard wings (for the 2nd bird) that comes with the house. The cherry blossom tree on the side of the house is from our Spring Cotton Scraps and images are from our Seasonal Booklet. I love that these house can store flat, so you can save them and bring out each year. I hope she adds photos. I love the little embellishents she added.

Look for more Easter ideas next week and Michelle Wooderson's (Mish) stamped card project this Sunday. If you have't seen Lisa Zappa's card project, you should scroll down to the previous post and see the cool cards she made!

NEW STAMP UPDATE: We have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new stamp designs and many of them have shipped and will be here by this Monday including more Bird Lovers, Flourishes, Sweet Kids and Story of me. We will then have everything except for the sets that had to be revised which include Bug’s Life, Book Lovers, Fishing Buds and Seaside. We are supposed to get those before the end of the month but I think the new changes will make the wait worthwhile.
