MARCH MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Creative Sharing Challenge!

Here they are on the wall shelf

I love making little things I can decorate for the holidays . So for this challenge I made cute little blocks for Easter and Spring... I will using this for the Cricut Monthly Challenge:

I made 6 of these cute little blocks. I used Craft card stock and cut them from Wrap It up Cartridge. These are all cut at Fit to page which came out to be 9" (however if you have set on portrait they are only 8").
The green, yellow, pink, purple  papers are from core'dinations - Soft side 
I then used Emma's stamp and dies from Hello Spring set. I cut 12 eggs out and stamped them with the coordinating decorative egg stamp. For the Spring I used the pretty flowers, for Easter I used the swirls.
I heat embossed them with some silver embossing powder.

I cut out several little Easter cuts - like the rabbits, lamb, Chickie, and basket from Easter 2010 cartridge all at 2".
The spring cuts are from April Showers - the bird house, tree, squirrel, worm, umbrella, and the cute little rain boots. These also cut at 2".
I added a few little extras - some rhineshones here, some stitching there, a little chalk, and a pretty little Spring/Easter ribbon.

I find that when you make these types of products that you don't assemble them first you add your embellishments and it makes it a lot easier. I glued the tops and side together, but left the bottom. Since, I'll probably be hosting Easter I'll fill them w/ some cute little Easter candies and put on the table.

Hope you enjoy and
Happy Scrappin'
