Spring & Easter projects by Christine & Natalie

Today we have 2 different Creative Team members sharing their talents with us. First is Christine, she says…
I have created a mini book using the Mini Album Pinking Edge and some papers and embellishments from Sweet Girl by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park.  These are just a few of the pages.  You can see the rest at my blog.

The front page of the mini book has a banner title that is part of the Sweet Girl collection by Echo Park in the Silhouette store.  I loved that I could make this banner larger so it really becomes the focus of the page.

I used another digital cutting file by Lori, called Scalloped Shapes for the background of this journaling card that is part of the paper pack.

You can see yet another frame on this page from Lori Whitlock.  It is called the 4×6 Frame in the Silhouette Store

Mini books are really so much fun, especially when you can cut out your own.  It easy to add as many pages as you want and even alter the size.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to see my project.
Supplies Used:
4×6 Frame- Silhouette Store #9783
Sweet Girl Paper Collection by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park
 Natalie has a beautiful Easter project to share with us. 
I’ve been know to make big signs for my front porch.  So when I brought this wooden pallet sign for my front door home from my local craft store, my son immediately said, “Mom, that isn’t nearly big enough for the front porch.”  I said, “silly, it’s for the front door.”  I had to figure out how to make it work, because I just had to bring the pallet looking sign home.  And since Easter is around the corner, I came up with this:

I first cut out the Easter saying out of vinyl, and placed it on the unpainted pallet.  Then I painted the wooden pallet blue, sanded and distressed it, removing the vinyl to reveal the color below.  I then cut out the Easter egg out of card stock, and using mod podge adhered it to foam core.  I then used plain old doilies, and cut circles and used the left over flowers that were cut to make the banner and stapled them to some twine and attached it to the pallet using hot glue.  It took me about an hour to make it.

I used the following files from Lori Whitlock’s store

Beautiful projects ladies! Christine, your album is so sweet. Totally makes me want to pull out my Sweet Girl papers and play some more. Natalie, love how you used the Easter word in vinyl as a mask and your darling doily banner.
