The Pink Elephant Easter Blog Hop

Welcome to The Pink Elephant Easter Blog Hop! If you didn't arrive here from Ann's blog, you will want to go to The Pink Elephant and start from the beginning. You won't want to miss the fun things that everyone has to share! Some of the design team girls are offering blog candy too!


I made an Easter card I wanted to share with you today. I had this egg punch that I punched a bunch of eggs out with and thought they needed a basket so I just cut this basket out of cardstock. I wanted my basket to have a weave so I took my distressed stripes cuttlebug embossing folder and ran my basket through horizontally first, I then inked up the embossing then ran it through again verically & inked up the embossing again, the first run through got flattened when I ran it through again so that's why I inked it. I also embossed my eggs with a variety of cuttlebug folders. I thought my basket needed some grass so I added some bag filler to the basket then embellished with some flowers. This was a simple quick card. I'd love to see yours if you make one, just link it in my comments.



I also made a little Easter project. I altered an egg carton that holds 6 plastic eggs. This carton is a little sample of what my tutorial will be on at The Pink Elephant. So if you're interested in learning how to make your own egg carton for a cute Easter project be sure to check out the tutorial on saturday at 4:00 pm (EST).



Now for some blog candy. I am offering this very egg carton with 6 eggs filled with scrapping embellishments! To be entered to win my blog candy just leave a comment in this post by midnight (EST) Sunday and I will announce the winner on Friday, March 27th on my blog. In your comment tell me your favorite color and three of your favorite little embellishments so I know what to put in the eggs :)

After you are done on my blog, be sure to hop over to Lori's blog to see what she is sharing!!
