Here is my take on the new challenge going on over at the BBTB..the challenge was to use the bunny face from the Doodlecharms cart.....hum not quite sure if I am in LOVE with the BUNNY face or not, but I sure do love the box...I gave it a little border around it to make it look like a napkin was folded around the whole basket....The box came from the Cupcake box with Lid set over at the cutting cafe...I guess I will just put some jelly beans or a special egg in this little basket for Easter...The sentiment is also from the cutting cafe...
This next circle card was made using one of the new Cutting Cafe Printable Stamp sets Called HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY CIRCLE WORDS.....these huge circle printable stamps are great for layouts and for making big circle cards with....The circle word fits perfectly over the Circle Shaped Card from The Cutting Cafe site....I didn't want to make this card to fussy because it will be for my Sons 17th Birthday...I am trying to not always have to put a bunch of bells and whistles on projects...I used all Crate paper for this circle card adding just a touch of glitter...Also from now until the 4th of April when you purchase any of the 3 new HUGE CIRCLE WORD sets you get the CIRCLE SHAPED CARD template for free.

Another fun Easter project to share with you all today....This one is a little special though....it uses four of the Cutting Cafe sets...
HAPPY EASTER BACKGROUND STAMPS
ASSORTED PILLOW BOX SET
ALL ABOUT EGGS PRINTABLE STAMP SET
....so what is special about this project, well a good friend of mine DeeDee Campbell started using a few of the Cafes printable stamps sets in color...............SO...........I thought I had better show one way of being able to do that......As you may know all of the printable stamps on the site are designed to print out in black ink from your printer, well if you have a some type of Printmaster or Printshop program, you can change the colors of the lines....Which is what I did for this project...I used my Printmaster program...I copied the pdf print and then brought it into printmaster and changed the color of the words to brown....and I LOVE how it looks.....i will be posting EXACTLY how I did this later today over in the tips section at the Cafe site...So be looking out for that....Also don't forget to leave a comment on the cafe site for a chance to win a free SCOR-PAL...it really does make ones life easier...click here for details...
I used mostly all Basic Grey papers on this pillow box with a touch of Doodlebugs inc. glitter paper for the egg...I think this will be cute to add some pink jelly beans in for my daughter..

Granted all of these items don't go together, but I have some great stuff to share about each of them...First off, awhile back I designed a file over at The Cutting Cafe called ALL ABOUT CUPCAKES and I must say that it is still my all time favorite printable stamp set, with enough images to make one wanta go make some CUPCAKES........(smile)....well the FABULOUS and I do mean FABULOUS site The Cuttlebug Challenge design team cooked up some DELICIOUS projects using the ALL ABOUT CUPCAKES set.....Maggies site is full of inspiration...I am sponsoring their site this week with a few free files from the Cafe site....you really need to hop on over and take a look, you won't be disappointed.....You can view all the information here.
Secondly, one of the great things about being on the Pazzle team is that I get to design CD Submissions for up coming CD's for the public........some get accepted and some don't..(but its all good)....Here is an old style bike that I designed...Kind of cute Uh............hopefully this will get accepted and will be in an upcoming CD release soon..........
Lastly but surely not least, Diana over at SCOR-PAL.........is sponsoring one lucky person with a SCOR-PAL........this is a must have for working with all kinds of craft projects where one needs to have PERFECT folds and it will make some really fun boxes........As some of you may know, my Pazzles machine is SICK...it makes me SICK just telling anyone about it...I love that darn machine, well anyHOO, since she is sick, I have been using the Scor-pal in helping fold all my fold lines on projects and oh my gosh it is AMAZING, to say the least.....so in about a few minutes, hop on over to this post over at THE CUTTING CAFE and leave a comment to be entered into a drawing to win one of these awesome babies..................Well that is it for now.....HUGS
