Last weekend I had the chance to get together with a few of my online scrappy friends. We had such a great time chatting and talking about what inspires us creatively. I love being able to get together with like-minded friends!
I brought along my Felicity Jane Sophie kit and scrapped these photos of my kids all dressed up for church on Easter morning.
It’s a tradition in our home to get new church clothes for Easter Sunday … and, of course, being the scrappy-mom I am, I always make the kids pose for pictures in their new duds. Hehe!
I used an old chipboard alpha from my stash for the title (Making Memories Pitter Patter). I was running low on e’s and a’s and couldn’t spell out “Easter,” so I went with Hippity Hop instead (thanks to the help of some old title idea books I have held onto 🙂 ).
I cut the banner pieces from the Felicity Jane Sophie Sticker sheet and decided to add in a few more of the elements to make the banner long enough to go across the top of my page. I “strung” them all together by stitching them with my sewing machine.
I fussy-cut several of the florals from the floral paper and clustered them together in a few spots around the page.
I cut the top of the “Special Day” journal block to use as a tab at the top of my photos. The other half holds my journaling below the photos.
I wrote the quick facts for this page with a black journaling pen and then stamped the word “happy” using the Stampin’ Up “Endless Birthday Wishes” stamp set.

I hope you’re having a great week!
The sun has been peeking out from time to time and that gives me hope that Spring is just around the corner.
The older cousins have the job of hiding the eggs for the younger cousins. Each child is assigned an egg color, and they are only allowed to collect their color of egg … making it fair for everyone.
I typed my journaling on one of the cut apart cards from the Journal Cards paper
, and layered up a couple of stickers
to decorate the left side.
I’m willing to bed that you have a set of similar pictures that are waiting to be scrapped in your drawer. Why not pull out the Celebrate Spring
and Celebrate Easter
collections and get those precious Spring memories scrapped?!

I have a new Echo Park Paper project using the Easter collection to share with you today!
As I started pulling out my holiday decorations this Spring I decided that my Easter collection was looking a little sad. Time to spruce things up! Like a breath of fresh air, the Easter collection came to my rescue and I used it to create these adorable altered Wood Easter Shapes that I found at Michael’s. This set was so much fun to create with the happy colors and patterns of this collection! I love the way they came together!
I hand cut the stripes for the large Easter egg shape, and then used an Echo Park Flower Silhouette Shape
to create the dimensional flowers as an accent. A few decorative brads add the perfect hint of shine.
I wanted the wood bird shape to have a little more dimension, so I decided to give her a layered wing. I cut the wing shape from this Echo Park Bird Silhouette cut file
. I cut the same shape three times and then layered them together using foam squares. A pink bow around her neck and a yellow button adorning her wing finish her off!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired to create your own Easter decor! See you again soon!
Happy Spring! The sun has come out here in Utah and the snow is melting away. That means that the bunny will be hopping his way to our homes in just a few weeks! I thought it would be fun to welcome his arrival by creating a sweet, little Easter basket
using the darling Echo Park Easter collection
. It’s also featured on the Echo Park Paper Blog
The star of this project is the famous bunny himself! I used the Peter Cottontail Die Set
and the Spring Pink/Brown Distressed Solid paper
to create my pink bunny. He has such a big job to do every year, that I thought he could use a little support from our little chick friend in the Easter Basket
. They make such a cute pair!
is filled with eggs and a Carrot Treat Box that I cut using this Echo Park Silhouette Carrot Box Shape
. I decorated the top of the carrot with one of the Easter
tags from the Ephemera Pack
along with a sheer bow and a button tied with twine. This little box came together so quickly! I can’t wait to create a basket
full of them to give to my nieces for our Easter
dinner this year!
I made the basket feel even more special by accenting the edge with a polka dot paper ruffle strip that I zig zag stitched on my sewing machine before adhering it. Won’t it be pretty sitting out on my table this year? I love it!
Happy Easter, Everyone!
