"First day of Spring" Blog Hop

Welcome to My Paper Love and “The first day of Spring” Blog hop!  Sweet Jill over at Everyday is an occasion has put together another fabulous Hop. (Thanks for having me again Jill)  So if you popped over for a visit then you’re in luck you can follow along starting with Jill at Everyday is an occasion.  If you have been following along you should have come from Heather- The Hunny Pot. This hop is ALL about Spring – It's official Spring is here! I know most of us could use some sunshine & flowers so let’s get started!
I really wanted to create a home decor type project.  I came across an egg card that completely inspired me to create this Spring/Easter door hanger. 

I used the egg cut from the Cricut Cartridge Doodlecharms. I cut two one at 11.5 and one at 12. Cut the larger one in half and adhered it to create a pouch.

Added some boa, filled it with raffia and some plastic eggs - I really should have used some nicer looking eggs:) What's with the holes??

I added some burlap (LOVE) and three roses created with MCT - rolled flower dies. Some paper leaves embossed and inked and there you have it!

I'm sure you are having a great time hopping along so I will send you on your way to Jamie- So Much Better With Age she has a great blog with some fantastic crafty ideas. I sure hope you enjoy the hop and thank you for joining us!

Hi Everyone!

How's your week so far? We had a three day weekend so we relaxed all day yesterday. I was able to get a little project done for the Peachy Keen Challenge - Anything Goes & My Creative Time - Spring related and be sure to have a Die cut on it somewhere! I think Peachy & MCT go so AWESOME together!!! 
Here is what I came up with.
It's a Easter treat holder. I made one similar for Valentines Day and you can grab the link for directions HERE
Oh my gosh - How can you resist the New peachy release. I used The March Stamp of the month kit PKSC - 15

Is that the cutest face ever? 

This is the MCT rolled flower die and Fly Away With Me Sentiments/Dies
The sentiment is MCT - Color me happy
The paper is all scraps

Little Scrap Pieces DT post - Luck of the Irish

Hi Everyone!

Did you have a good week? I got so much accomplished. Do you ever look back at your week and think wow! How did we do all that? I guess it's better than the alternative :) I'm so exited for today of course because its  Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday and this weeks challenge is luck of the Irish. So get ready and link up all your crafty projects! I just wanted to add, that I really love looking at all the projects every week - you guys are terrific :) 
I'm also excited for this evening because I'm having some friends over for game night.  I thought it would be fun to make some treats for the winners. So I created some fun treat bags with a St. Patrick's Day theme.  
I started with the fun Cricut cut from paper doll dress up. I just cut it twice once in black and once in gold. I cut the coins off the black pot and used the gold paper then added glitter. 
The banner is a die from Lil Inker Stamps and the sentiment is from My Creative Time

Irish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hi Everyone!

How was your weekend? Anything fun? We had an incredibly busy but oh so fun weekend. So I have spent the last couple weeks using all my crafty time for a different type of craft. If you noticed I didn't post very much last week or the prior week - well here's why....

My son and his friends participated in the school variety show.  They were the T-birds and sang Grease Lightning. Oh my gosh it was soooo CUTE! See that car - that was done by my oh SOOOO talented hubby - Isn't it amazing. It's cardboard!!! It looks like a real car in this photo (sorry for the bad photo, it was dark and none of us could get a good shot) So by orders of the Mr (heehee) I painstakingly painted this  - (did I mention it's 7 feet long) for days and once it met his approval he added the details that would make the hot rod come to life!  Awesome memories were made:)

Well on to my card for the day
 Oh I know there is supposed to be a pot a gold at the end of the rainbow, but I couldn't resist putting this adorable Leprechaun at the end:)
Cricut Cartridge - Simply Charmed
Paper - All scraps I think K&Co.
