Sock Monkey

My daughter's Girl Scout Troop leader is hanging up her sash after 4 years.  I made her a packet of thank you cards for her to use.  Besides being the troop leader,  she volunteers at the PTA for our school as well as runs a business from her home called Sock Monkey Ghetto.  Her creations have a crazy likeness to the actors that she uses.  I have to say that the Captain Jack Sparrow is my favorite!

Choose a Greeting

At my recent demonstrator meeting we always have a theme swap and this month was a little different as we had to create a "spring" card omitting the greeting.   I used something different for the center of my flowers as you can see in the photo.  The group was able to choose what appealed to them.

Chocolate Bunny Card

When the Occasions Mini came out my up-line organized a swap showcasing products from it.  I fell in love with this single stamp!  I made the tag look all speckled with the color spritzing tool, I love how it looks like a robin's egg.

Easter Home Decor

I saw this adorable project on my friend and fellow demonstrator's blog, Lisa Freeman.  She has been showcasing her down-line's incredible stamping talents.  As soon as I saw this, I knew I would be CASEing it, thank you to Sandy Alexander for such an amazing idea!  I made two of them just changed the bucket color.  I know my mom will flip her lid with excitement when she see's it!

The buckets I picked up in the dollar section of my favorite Big Box store.  I just changed out their satin ribbon for our pretty polka-dot grosgrain.  If your bucket does not have holes, you can create your own by using the Crop-a-Dile.

Bunny Basket

I saw this stinkin' cute basket on Lorri Heiling's blog.  She was kind enough to share with me the template.  I CASEd her sample but just changed up the DSP.  One tip though, on the template there are dimensions for the box, but it is slightly larger than the egg shape.  I just put some Chocolate Chip CS in my printer and hit print then trimmed out the egg and box.  Hope that little tip helps.
