Scripture Easter Goodie Bag

Hello! Happy Easter!
I wanted to make some goodie bags that had something to do with the true meaning of Easter. I used a glassine bag. The first item in the bag was a print out of lyrics from the song - "He is Risen".
Then I made three paper eggs that had a scripture on the front and a quote on the back. I did add some thin Lindt wrapped chocolates to the middle of the eggs and glued the front and back of the eggs together.

I put all the contents in the glassine bag, folded the top down. I made the bag topper out of a doily, folded in half and I glued on some paper flowers I made from scrapbook paper and book paper. I stapled the topper to the bag. I printed out the tag in cream card stock (it is hard to tell with the picture)

Thank you for stopping by! I wish you all a happy Easter!
I am also sharing one of my favorite songs about the Savior which fits this season called
"Oh Lord, My Redeemer" by Jeff Goodrich.

Easter Candy Bouquet

Hello! Welcome to my blog!
A new craft passion of mine has been making candy bouquets. With Easter coming up, I knew this project would be a lot of fun with the variety of candy available, and of course the lovely colors that go with this season. 
I have been using empty bean cans for my bases as they are frugal and I love to creatively recycle. I prepare the base by putting a few rocks in the bottom of the can and I pour some plaster over them to secure. Then I glue a styrofoam ball on top of the dried plaster. I added grass to fill the can. Then I added prepared skewers to the styrofoam ball, rearranging them until I got the look I wanted.

The phrase and the chocolate bunnies were cut out with a Cricut using the Create a Critter cartridge.
I am going to have to make a few more of these. They are fun to make and even more fun to give away. Thanks for stopping by!

Fresh Eggs Wood Sign

Hello! Welcome to my blog!
My mom recently gave me a rusty egg basket. I found the cutest natural plastic eggs at a dollar store. Thank goodness for Easter time. The egg basket was pretty lonely on the shelf that I put it on, so I painted a sign to go with it. 

I found a scrap piece of 2x12 that was a perfect for this project. I painted the wood white. To make a stencil - I cut out the letters on my Cricut with the Story Time cartridge. The corners were from the same cartridge. After letting the paint dry I power sanded over the whole sign.

Included in the above picture are paper carrots (click here for tutorial) and

St. Patrick's Day Quote Rocks

Hello! Welcome to my blog!
I love the Irish blessings and lucky quotes that are to be found out there. I made some quote rocks for Thanksgiving and I decided to do the same for St. Patrick's Day.

When I made the Thanksgiving quote rocks (CLICK HERE TO VIEW), I printed out the quotes and transferred them to the rocks using pencil on the opposite side of the paper, tracing over the letters, and then filling in the transferred areas with permanent marker. This time I reversed the quotes on my computer, placed the printer ink side down on the rock and colored the blank side with pencil. This transferred the printer ink on to the rock. Then I filled in the transferred ink in with permanent marker. This worked much better.

Here are the quotes I used. I had to shorten some to fit on the rocks I had.
