Bunny Sachet

Is there anyone who HASN'T found Pinterest? I have to tell you, for visually stimulated people it's THE site to have!

Have you ever really sat and thought about how much more inspiration we've gained from just viewing the abundance of sites available online? The things you come across. The "Oh, what a great idea!".

Well, on my travels through Pinterest today I came across THE most adorable idea. Mini bunny sachets. So many possibilites...not just with bunnies, but other holidays as well. Such a sweet and simple idea. I think what draws me to it the most is the fact it's SO quick to create.

Now, I'm off to make a few of these cutie patooties!  Interested in trying your hand at them, go to to the Mini Bunny Sachet link.

Bunny Wore a Brooche

Spent the entire day Saturday cleaning the house so I'm enjoying some additional crafting time today.

Here's another project using the Bentley Bunny template from the February 2012 Paper Crafters Sampler.  The new Everyday Enchantment designer paper works so well for Easter projects.

This time I've incoporated the basket from the template.  It's really for decorative purposes.  There's also the option to turn the basket upside down to use it for a stand.  Bentley is sporting a floral brooche.  It seemed natural.  What bunny doesn't look cute with a little embellishment around the next?

The red 3x3 notecards were stamped with the Fresh Vintage stamp set with white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  The base of the card was stamped in real red with the border image from the same set.

These beautiful flowers are from the Everyday Enchatment designer paper.  Butterfly is from another stamp set and dusted with diamond glitter.

Flowers from the same set were stamped on red and vanilla paper and cut.  Pearl centered in flower.

Bentley Bunny Goes Floral

Introducting Bentley Bunny, the newest EXCLUSIVE tempalte in the February 2012 issue of the Paper Crafters Sampler.  Bentley is part of the "Easter Blessings" issue.

The February Sampler went live on the 10th of the month, but since then I have revamped the template to include a 'visual' assembly.  I'll be sending the revised issue out to those who have purchase the issue prior to the 18th.

Here's looking forward to Easter!
