All Ears

Wishing you a Happy Easter as we wrap up our Easter themed week.
Hope you enjoyed it!

"All Ears"

Ok, so it's not like my dogs don't have big enough ears, but I had to dress them in a bunny head costume!  Katrina here to share an Easter themed layout.  And yes, I do dress the dogs up and I start them when they are puppies.  We do pet therapy with them at nursing homes, hospitals, etc. and it's a good "trick" to have in our pocket!

The Welcome Spring collection is perfect for those Easter photos or projects that you want to create.  I love the navy and pink combo.  Here I added some banners to the bottom of the butterfly die cut, just for fun.

I used some cardstock and the 6x6 mini pad to cut out some decorated eggs with my Silhouette.  I also cut two border strips that looked like grass and layered on top of one another to give some depth to the grassy area. 

Thanks for stopping by Imaginisce today!  And hope you have a "Hoppy Easter"!

Supplies List

Decorated Embroidery Hoops

You are in for a treat today!!
Christine has created this stunning home decor set and has included a brief tutorial as well. Check it out!

Decorated Easter Hoops

I feel like there is not nearly as much Easter home decor out there as there is for other holidays - so I had the perfect excuse to create some new home decor this year!  Welcome Spring is perfect for both spring and Easter projects!  I created a set of three altered embroidery hoops to adorn the walls of the Meyer residence.

I've made several hoops like this over the last couple years.  It can be fun and a good challenge to design in a circle instead of a rectangle or square.

I knew I wanted a set of three hoops so I opted to make one a bigger one and added a little more decor to that one.  Lots of fussy cutting took place to create these scenes.

The smaller two hoops are the same size and use the same base patterned paper but different colored eggs.

They also have different bunnies and scenes.  

After seeing these you may be wondering how I used paper in the embroidery hoop instead of fabric.  I put together a little tutorial for you to show you how quick and easy it can come together.

1. Take apart your embroidery hoop and set the outside piece aside.
2. Trace your inside piece on the back of the patterned paper you want to use.
3. Cut out your circle but don't cut on the traced line...leave about 1/4" border.  This does not need to be exact!
4. Using quick drying glue (the Imaginisce Ibond Cordless glue gun works perfectly here) put a line of glue onto the top of your hoop.  Turn it over and attach it to the circle.  You will have excess border.
5. Once dry go around and snip every 1/2 inch or so on the excess border. Add glue to the outside of the hoop and fold down the snipped pieces.  
7. Add the outside piece of the hoop and you are done.  If you use a quick drying glue you are ready to decorate!

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce: Patterned Paper, Gemstones (Welcome Spring)
American Crafts: Cardstock, Ribbon

Easter Banner

The tulips & daffodils are blooming, the sun is shining and the Easter is here this weekend!  If you like to decorate for this holiday then you will love this next project.

Happy Easter Banner

I really don't have much in the way of Easter decor for my home, so I decided to make a cute banner, but instead of just one, I did three.

This cute banner is so fun because it has the "Happy Easter" as well as some adorable cut out eggs.  

I simply cut out my eggs using my Silhouette Cameo and used a little bit of tape to adhere them to some twine.  It was so simple and easy and a fun way to add a little bit of Easter decor with not too much work.  I know for me, I am always looking for easy and adorable and this is it.

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce Patterned Paper (Welcome Spring)
American Crafts (Twine)


We'll be sharing more Easter themed projects the rest of this week so make sure to stop by!
