Flaunt It Fridays Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to Flaunt It Fridays Birthday Bash Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from talented Stacey of Stacey's Creative Corner, you are in the right place. If not and you would like to start at the beginning go directly to Flaunt It Fridays.

This week we are flaunting the little bunny with present on page 27 of the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge.

For my project, I made a cute little Easter basket for a Red Hat Lady. I found a great tutorial at SplitCoastStampers.The base of the basket starts with one piece of 4 3/4" x 7 3/4" piece of cardstock. One piece of 1" x 11" piece of cardstock is needed for the basket handle. You will need one 1 1/2" x 15" of patterned paper to decorate the basket and one 7/8" x 11" of patterned paper to decorate the handle. See the tutorial for the complete directions! I used the Martha Stewart doily lace edge punch on a piece of the purple paper and glued it around the top edges of the basket. To secure the handles of the basket, I used Red Hat Society brads. The little bunny is cut at 2 3/4 inches using a lavender piece of K&Company Designer Mat Pad. I used an Action Wobble on the bunny and placed it on the basket. It is so cute when it wobbles. Here is a close up view of the Wobble and my cute little brad.

For my second project, I chose to make a card to go along with the basket.

These projects are my first time to use the Birthday Bash cartridge. I was pleasantly surprised to see a cut for a crown! This is the card/tag cut on page 47 and is cut at 5 3/4 inches. For the remaining cuts, I used the Layer 1 and Layer 2 on page 56 cut at 6 inches. First I tried 5 3/4" (same as card size) but it was too small, so I used a size larger. I trimmed off a bit of the red check paper for a better fit. Hmm, guess I need to learn to use a Gyspy! Of course, Red Hat Ladies like bling! I added little red hearts which was a Valentine clearance, Recollections gemstones, and Diamond Stickles. For the inside of the card, I used the phrase feature on page 56 to cut Royal Wishes at 3 inches. "For you" phrase is found on page 34 and is cut at 2 1/4 inches. This is photo of the inside of the card. I hope you enjoy my projects! 

Now for a little blog candy! I have a package of Special Moments scrapbook stickers, a package of Miss Elizabeths Scrapbook Embellishments-Travel theme, and 5 mats that I have embossed with some of my favorite Cuttlebug folders.
