Sewing for Easter

Just some quick pictures to share a fun idea for the kids.....Easter basket liners! I can't wait to see all the kiddos hunting their eggs this year!

The baskets are inexpensive ($9) at Big Lots and are a nice, generous size. Lots of room for goodies!

I made Joy's & Cade's a couple years ago, but updated Cade's with some appropriate baseball-themed ribbon.

Have a blessed Easter!

Recycled Crochet Container

How cute is this little project? I found this surfing Pinterest last night and had to get right to work.

Here is the link to the awesome blog post: Filth Wizardry

Here is my finished project:

It started out life as a Juicy Juice bottle.

First, I used my woodburning pen (I think I got that when I was twelve). I just removed the top part of the container.

Next, I punched holes with my cropadile:

Then, the fun part started: the crochet. The original blog post (link above) has enough details to get you started. Have fun!

Pop Up Baseball Card

A birthday card for my precious son who is turning 11 tomorrow!

He lives and breathes baseball right now. I knew I wanted to make a pop-up card and wanted it to be simple, too. The stamps are from two Close to my Heart stamp sets called "Baseball" & "All Star".

I really wasn't in the mood to cricut all those letters and glue them on I used the awesome cricut markers! Sooo much easier. They have a stamped look, right? especially since I inked the edges.

I used an old sticker I had that was already 3-d. I adhered it to a piece of cardstock, and then cut it out so it wouldn't stick where it wasn't supposed to. I also used the method of sewing to stick my two pieces of cardstock (infuse and outside) glue, so no lumps or bumps. Yay!
