Easter is almost here!

Something Spring for PPA32. Easter is just around the corner. I bought my girls dresses this week and spent an hour in the dollar store picking out window clings, bunny ears, basket straw and other such Easter related items. I love Easter. My mom always buys the big, Big , BIG bunny from Purdys and we all get to break him up after our Easter dinner. Everyone fights over the ears. My mother in law still hides an Easter plate for all the adults. My husband thinks he is too old for such stuff so I always get to go hunting for 2! Decorating Easter eggs are also a fun time that I now get to spend with my daughters. I used the Easter kit from the Occasions Mini to decorate this egg. The rub-ons and bling are my favourite. I've used them for other projects as well. The kit has many uses for all sorts of projects.

The Top Note die has got to be my all time favourite die for the big shot. There are so many ways to use it. Here I stuck it to the inside of the box and wrapped it up and over the sides keeping it in place using the filigree brads and crystal brads.

Here is a great way to make paper confetti. Send some cardstock through your paper shredder and then through your crimper. I always like to throw a little dsp in with it to break up the solid colour.



your basket turned out lovely! I love this DSP! great job :)

Very nice basket. I love the shredded paper. Did you use a crosscut shredder or a strip cut paper shredder? I am not sure if the crosscut shredder is too small to use for such. What is DSP?

Hands On

I used a strip cut paper shredder. If you don't have one just cut 1/8" or 1/4 " strips with your paper cutter. Dsp is Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!
