Spring Fling Craft Boutique



I been busily crafting for a fantastic Spring Boutique that my friend Suzanne organizes! Boutwells Landing is a new, expansive retirement community near Stillwater (Minnesota). It's absolutely beautiful. There is an indoor restaurant, a small grocery store, a hairdresser, a barber, a chapel, a town hall meeting room, and a small library all wrapped around a beautiful courtyard!



25+ crafters have been busily making cards, jewelry, pot holders, table runners, stuffed toys, purses and totes, Easter Baskets, little girl dresses, baby outfits, journals, tooth fairy pillows, doll clothes, homemade hand lotion, adult bibs, soaps, bath salts, jewelry bags, earring holders and much, much more!

This cute rabbit will be one of my many creations at the boutique!

Spring Is Here

Although it is a dreary day, at least spring is here. The calendar says it is Spring. The snow is all but gone. And it was 60 this weekend (but in the low 40s today).

This foundation for this card is the Lilly Anna Collection. The Some Bunny stamp set, floss, and some layering complete the card.

And I want to thank Barb Foster for showing me how to make a 5 petal flower from a 6 petal punch. For this flower I used 2 different sized punches, distressed them a bit, and strung the floss through the center to complete the flower.

This card is part of a Spring Blog Challenge. Here are links to other Angel Company Demonstrators who have participated in this challenge. Enjoy blog hopping.

It's Time for Bunnies

I'm getting ready for a couple of spring craft shows; thus, my absence from blogging. Not only do I like to stamp and scrap but I also quilt and sew. Here's one of my Bunny Creations that will go to the 1st craft show!


The background on the card is created by with the Scor-Pal and then sanded. This effect is obtained using white-core cardstock. The"ribbon" is created with the crimper. And the stamp set is our adorable Hoppy Day, a new stamp set in our Serendipity Magalogue recently released.


Have fun with your own bunny creations over the next few weeks.

Happy Stamping and Scrapping
