Last month we celebrated my baby sister’s pregnancy with a couple of baby showers. So of course I had to get crafty!

She’s having a baby boy (in case the blue onesies didn’t give it away!) and I am so excited to meet him next month! My nephew will be the first boy in our family, and my daughters are thrilled to have a cousin to play with and love!

Sweet blessing indeed! I really look forward to the experiences and memories my daughters and nephew will have together! There’s nothing like building forts, or going swimming, or playing house, or sleepovers, or road trips, or birthdays, or holidays, or a million other things… with cousins! What an exciting adventure they have ahead : )

What are some of your favorite memories growing up with cousins? I’d love to hear in the comments below! Thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!

“Dyed” Easter Eggs {Feeling Crafty}

2013-03-23_4068_retro-warm

We “dyed” Easter eggs today! My girls and I wanted to make a “Happy Easter” banner, so we poked around Pinterest to get our creative juices flowing. We found lots of banners with egg shaped panels. So when I went to start pulling patterned cardstock, I remembered I had a pack of Heidi Swapp Color Magic Resist paper that I hadn’t used yet. I love using stencils/templates (or “stemplates” as Lain Ehmann calls ’em!) with Dylusions Spray Inks and usually make my own patterned paper. But remembering the Heidi Swapp pack I had gave me the idea to “dye” my own eggs!

Using my Slice e-cutter and Dilly Dally design card, I cut 4″ eggs from three different patterned Heidi Swapp papers; using the Basic Shapes 3 design card, I cut 3″ letters from brown cardstock. I chalked the edges of the letters using VersaMagic Chalk Ink in Cloud White and added Ice Stickles in Strawberry Ice.

WIth Dylusions Sprays in Fresh Lime, Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange, Vibrant Turquoise,and Bubblegum Pink, I dyed our eggs! Added some washi tape, and using foam dots adhered the letters to the eggs. Twine and mini clothes pins finished the look and our banner panels/eggs were now ready to be displayed!
