April brings Spring, right?

Hello there!

Thanks for stopping by!  It's been so busy with the end of Sale-a-Bration and the Weekly Deals and trying to keep you up to date with announcements... I've been lacking on sharing the creative inspiration that you come to see!  Time to fix that!  I have some new projects and got pictures uploaded so here we go!

Berry Basket Bigz Die!!  Spiral Flower Die!!  Let's get ready for Spring!!  There are a TON of adorable Easter and Bunny baskets out there, so just google or head over to Pinterest and check out my SU! Berry Basket Board for more ideas too!  Since Easter is already upon us pretty much I decided to focus on Spring Ideas!

I used the Under The Tree Specialty Box designer series paper with the Kraft printed side facing out.  I absolutely LOVE this paper, it's such a great sturdy weight for 3D projects!  I sure wish we would have had a spring package but luckily this pack is still available in the Clearance Rack while supplies last, $5!  I selected one of the yellow print sides from the Best Year Ever Sale-a-Bration dsp pack for the basket, which meant it was a perfect match to add in the coordinating ribbon and button from the Best Year Ever SAB Accessory pack!  Thank You Stampin' Up! for doing all of the work for us and making it so easy on our end to create fabulous projects!

Here's a side view so you can see how cute the little ribbon bows are on the sides where the handles are attached.  This was just enough detail and left all of our attention to focus on the front, created of course with the Spiral Flower Die and a dab of hot glue.  I first folded a doily in half over the edge of the basket and adhered with a dab of Green Tip glue (aka, Tombow Liquid Multipurose glue).  I used one of our flower punches to add it a couple petals to act as leaves under the rose with a coordinating pattern of paper (it's the blue bokeh, hard to see in picture).  I added the smallest button to the center of the flower for a finishing touch.  This flower is just 1 of the spiral die pieces, stay tuned later in the week to see what a double looks like!  ;)

The only April Fool's is that I didn't have any treats to add to the basket just yet! 

Happy Stamping and have a great day!
