Easter Cards with Bev

Bev here today at Robin's Nest. I am sharing 2 really cute Easter Cards. The papers available with Easter themes and colours make creating so much fun and easy. Add a few accents and your done. Hope these inspire you to create some too. The kids and grandkids will love them.

Supply List
Robin's Nest Products
Papers: Green Butterflies, Bunny Limoncello Glitter Cardstock
Accents: dew drops, Silver arch shell
Other: ink, stamp, cardstock, variegated cardstock, image

Up first I grabbed these papers and an Easter image which I matted.

For this card I grabbed the lemon yellow glitter cardstock and cut the pieces and strips to start the background. The print bunnies is matted with the reverse side of the paper with fun stripes.

The matted print is added to the main base.

Now it was time to add some accents to the base cards. Above the yellow one has added stripe stripes, dew drops and sentiments ink stamped.

The green card has an added yellow glitter cardstock matt added, the sun arch shell die cut, a green variegated strip with dew drops and it's done too.
Both were fun and easy with the cool paper collections and accents.


Thanks for visiting today... hope to see you again soon,

How to Make Fun Little Girl's Layouts for March

Good Morning, Penny here to show you how to make fun little girl's March layout.

So this is a layout of my granddaughter Madison. When she was smaller she would love to pose for our pretend "modeling photo shoots". We took ton's of photo's of her at that age, just because she loved posing, and having fun. Now as she get's older, it's getting harder, and harder to get her in front of the camera, and I won't even talk about how hard it is to photograph my grandson now that he is a teen.

So to make this layout I started with some fabulous Robin's Nest Scrapbooking supplies

Kiwi Sorbet cardstock - I loved that this cardstock almost matched her outfit colors exactly, so that is what I choose for my background sheet..

Robins-Egg-Glitter-Cardstock - This cardstock was also a great match, and it is speckled throughout with glitter although it doesn't show up in the photograph.

Diamond-Dew-Drops and Dew-Drops-Originals - I used both of these all over this layout, and they were a blast to work with. I'd have to say these are one of my favorite Robin's Nest products.

Alpha-Glitter-Stickers -You can see these pictured here on my title in the word "Girl".  They have ton's of glitter on them, and I found them very easy to line up. 

Here are more samples of how I decorated the accents with dew drops, and fun girly things.

In the following sample I don't know what I would have done without the Best Glue Ever and the Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect.  This glue is perfect for things like this, and the Embellie Gellie helped me to position the Dew Drops perfectly.

So this is our fun girl's March layout, and photo shoot. Get your camera, and get those photos quickly while they are still small enough to let you!

Till nest time Happy Scrapping! Love Penny

A wonderful use of a beautiful tag

Colleen here with a wonderful use of a beautiful tag.  I love to make tags so decided to make a gift tag.  Something so very easy and smart to create.

I started with Kiwi Sobert Glitter Cardstock and a sizzix die to cut out two tags.  I then used a piece of an old doily and molding paste to add some texture to the tag.

I also added some ribbon up at the top and put some molding paste over that.
I glued only the bottom portion of the 2nd tag onto the back of the tag.  I cut off the top part of the tag so that it makes a great pocket to put a little gift or gift card in.

I used a rub-on down in the lower left corner from the Time Flies Rub On package.  I used one of doilies from the Doillie Die Cuts and cut out the clock from the one of the cards from the  Rusty Rose Cards set.  The butterfly was made cutting 2 butterflies from a punch and then used some Transfer Foils from ScraPerfect.  The foils are so easy to use and add a bit of color to the butterflies.  I finished the butterfly off with a Fall Foilige Tear Drop  and a brown dew drop from the Black Forest Mini Dew Drop.  

Lastly I added some ribbon and put green diamond drew drops from the Jolly Dew Drops package on the front and back of each ribbon.

I thank you for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to the Robin's Store to see some of the other awesome products.

How To Create A Delightful Easter Cone

Hello crafty friends.
Welcome to Chattering Robin's.
Michelle here this week 
to share a fun project with you,
just in time for Easter, 
a DELIGHTFUL Easter Cone
that can be filled with all kinds
of sweet treats.

From The Robin's Nest:
Bunny Stripe Cardstock
Spring Stripe Glitter Cardstock
Spring Flowers Glitter Cardstock
Pink Glitter Chipboard
Dew Drops
Diamond Dew Drops
Tear Drops

Additional Supplies:
Scraperfect Best Glue Ever

Personal Stash:
Satin Ribbon
Shabby Roses
Venice Dangle Lace
Satin Ruffle Trim
Plastic Egg
Purple Shredded Paper

For this project I chose the
Easter Stripe Cardstock as the base for my cone.
It features quite a whimsical print
with bunnies, eggs & more
all in beautiful shades of spring.
I used a template cut from
my cutting machine for the cone,
shaped it around a large glue bottle,
and glued it at the created seam.

I had some scrap pieces left from
past projects of the 
Spring Stripe Glitter, Spring Flowers Glitter
Pink Glitter Chipboard
that worked perfectly 
to create bunny & flower accents 
for the plastic egg & 
for the inside of the cone.

After using a punch to create a doily edged trim
to a strip of the striped glitter cardstock,
I glued it around the top of the cone, followed by gluing white shabby roses around the bottom 
of the doily trim.

To finish the top edge, I added
additional Dew Drops to the top.

I glued a 3 portion of the dangle Venice lace
to the bottom of the cone, accented by
lilac shabby roses & variety of Dew Drops 
in purple & white.

I filled the cone
with some purple shredded paper,
& added plastic egg embellished by flowers
from the Spring Flowers Glitter cardstock.

For the final touch, I glued a
thin lilac colored satin ribbon
to serve as a handle.

A very simple project, 
creating a paper cone
that is sure to bring delight to 
any youngster filled with 
yummy Easter treats.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

created by the very talented
Robin's Nest Design Team.
