Hop on

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great Easter Holiday.

 I'm here one more time sharing with you a couple of projects using the "Hoppy Easter" Kit from The Greeting Farm.  I created what is called a pop up matchbox card.

This is how it looks when it's opened up.  I first saw this in a tutorial given on youtube by Rachel Lewsley of My Stampin Haven.  I did a bit of altering because well... let's be frank here... I don't follow instructions very well.  Yes, that's me! hehehe!

Now how adorable are those cute characters from the Hoppy Easter Kit?! For the inside of the card I used the bunny, chick, and Easter eggs.  I jazzed it up a bit with a fence, grass, butterflies, and clouds in the background. There are three little tabs where I adhered all the pieces.

Here is what it looks like all the way open and as you can see there is room for a gift card.

And although it's Easter, I really could not resist a Starbucks hula girl gift card.  I thought this was brilliantly planned out!

And here is the top of the box when it's closed.

This adorable basket and "Happy Easter" sentiment is also in the Hoppy Easter Kit.

The bottom of this box is reserved for personal writing.  So there you have it!... A Pop Up Matchbox Card!

After seeing the "Hop on" sentiment on this kit, I knew exactly which photo I could use for a scrapbook layout.

And my daughter had no hesitation hoping on her bicycle in this photo.  Some of the design papers and the sentiment is from the Hoppy Easter Kit.  So you see just how diverse this kit really is.

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share with you this wonderful kit from The Greeting Farm.  You can also check out the rest of the DT sweethearts... ClaudetteCorinne, and Cynthia, and of course over at The Greeting Farm blog.

Aloha and Mahalo!

Spring Fun

Hiya there!

Did you know that The Greeting Farm's Hoppy Easter Kit can be used in other ways besides Easter?  Here I created a cute little bird house and used the sentiment from the Hoppy Easter Kit.

I thought they went well together.  I came across this birdhouse from paperisbliss.  After seeing it, I knew I too needed to create one.  I love that it's tied with a ribbon so it can still be opened for some sweet treat goodies that are in there.

Here's a close up of how it opens and the "lucky candy" that are in there.

Also from the kit are adorable cards that can be used for many different projects and in this case I used them for a Project Life page of my two minis.

Dress them in pink, give them some flowers, and fun sunglasses and I had no problem getting them to take pictures.  This was such a super easy process and these cards make it so simple.  I also colored up Miss Anya Love from The Greeting Farm.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out this adorable Hoppy Easter Kit from The Greeting Farm.

Yummy Pie

Happy Monday!

I'm here with a card I just created with Cheeky Cherry Pie from The Greeting Farm.  I have a few birthdays this month and this card is for a very special someone who loooves pies.    Being that Miss Anya is always so sexy I have her sitting on her kitchen table. hehehehe!

So it turns out this card is for my hubby.  I know this card is very feminine but this way he'll think of me. hahaha!  Every year for his birthday I bake him a pie rather than a cake.  Okay I'm off to create...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Planning Set-up

Hi friends!

Aside from paper crafting, this past year I have really been into decorating my planners.  Some would say it's a bit extreme to put so much effort into decorating your planners.  I say...Is it fun? HECK YEAH! It's another outlet for me to play with paper, stickers, and stationery.  We all love that right?!

So this is my bigger planner a Kikki K planner and this is where I keep track of everything overall such as: Home cleaning, everyone's schedule, bills, birthdays... just a broad view of everything. And being that Easter is this month naturally I went with an Easter theme to decorate it.

My second planner is a smaller Kikki K planner that fits into my handbag and can be carried with me at all times.  This is where I keep track of the day to day.  I know exactly what I need to do, where I need to go, what I'm making for dinner, etc.  This one wasn't all that necessary but I felt decorating only once a month was not enough fun. Seriously I need every excuse and opportunity to play with paper. :)

Sorry to bore all of you with my planner addiction but this is another fun part of my life so you'll be seeing it here on my blog.  If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!  Thanks for stopping by friends!
