CTC123 Easter

What a busy weekend- I can't believe Easter is almost here, and with so much to do before then I wanted something not too complicated to make for Easter this year. I'm quite excited because 2 of our children are coming home for the short break. It will be lovely to have them around for a few days. I always try to get lots of baking done- and of course there are traditional recipes to whip up. So I need some cards to go with their gifts.

This is a style of card that I have always admired but seldom made so I was pleased to finally get these created.  SOOO easy! Why haven't I done this before?
Their little envelopes will contain a small gift to go along with the eggs!

I liked the layout of the card on the top left of page 27 of the occasions catalogue- just the simple strip of DSP on the lower half of the card, and a colour banner behind the label with the sentiment on it, so that inspired the outside of the bag.

The pull out card is similarly simple. I cut the white card insert and the coloured label on the front using the Project Life Framelits- they make things super easy.

The sentiments are from various sets- Affectionately Yours, and Layering Love - sentiments that are perfect for family. A little enamel heart is also just the right touch. I do love the enamel shapes and they are great value for the number of pieces in a pack.

Don't forget we love to see what inspires you in the catalogue. Show us your easter projects on our Facebook Page.

You can find the full crew here if you get lost.

Grab a coffee and some chocolate eggs and hop around the rest of the blog participants this week. Next on this week's blog is Monique
