Hi Crafty Friends!!! Welcome to the Easter Bunny Blog Hop! We are so excited that you are hopping with us today! If you came here by way of the Fabulously Crafty Julie then you are on the right track! If you landed here randomly and would like to join the Hop please start at the beginning at Cricut Cardz Challenge. Be sure you start there because Mary has some great Blog Candy to give away!
For my Hop project I decided to make a magnetic Easter scene. I love crafting with my five year old Nephew so I knew I wanted to make a project that you could do with kids. I also wanted the project to be one that could be made in a short amount of time. I think little ones will love to help make this project as much as they love playing with it. My Nephew tested this out and loved it. He has since requested a red Easter Basket of his own. Please watch the video below to see my project in action!
I hope you liked my project and get inspired to make some Easter crafts!! I would like to thank Mary & Jeri at Cricut Cardz Challenge for hosting this Awesomely Crafty Hop! Hugs to you both, we appreciate everything you do for the crafting community!

Hi! How is everyone? I’m doing great! I can’t believe October is coming to a close. It feels like it went by so fast! The cold and rainy weather is definitely here. But it’s perfect crafting weather! So today I have for you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #48! This weeks challenge is to make a card for Thanksgiving using the card feature. You can use any cartridge and colors you like. Super easy and fun! I hope you join us this week.
I decided to make a Thanksgiving Dinner invitation using the Doodlecharms cartridge and paper from DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack. (Which wasn’t a hard choice since out of all the carts I own this is the only cart with the card feature. Lol.) I used my new Gypsy to design this card so I was able to hide some of the cut lines on the leaves. This is a flat postcard style card that measures 4.25 x 5.50. First I inked the card base, printed wording and the leaves with distress inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Then I attached the printed wording to my invite. Next I crumpled the leaves, attached them to my card base and dusted perfect pearls in perfect pearl and gold onto them. The wording was typed on my computer and printed using French Script MT font at 22 point. To finish the card I used two brown eyelets at the bottom.
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year maybe this will inspire your invitations or perhaps it will inspire you to make a Fall card. I hope you like my invitation. Have a wonderful week and Happy Halloween!!!
