Even More Flowers and Easter!

Greetings! Can you believe it's almost Easter? I can't believe how fast this year is flying by! Today we have a little more flower inspiration and some Easter projects for you from designers Nanne Harry, Sandi Clarkson and yours truly! Take a look:

Summer Beauty by Nanne Harry

Nanne used some gorgeous Bo Bunny Vicki B. papers for this project! Love the orange, brown and green combo! Papers used - Bo Bunny Vicki B. - Vicki B., Bazzillion, Cutouts and Stripe. Flowers - Prima Regent (Hamlet), Prima Whisper (Celebrate).

Bunny Project by Sandi Clarkson

Sandi decorated this wooden bunny with some pretty papers and Prima Floret Flowers (Camille). How cute and perfect for Easter!

Mini Easter Baskets by GenCraft

I used the Bo Bunny Vicki B. papers to make my "baskets!" They are actually mini decoupage boxes that I altered to look like Easter Baskets! I love how they turned out! The papers I used are: Bo Bunny Vicki B. - Vicki B., Bazzillion (on the inside), Bubbly (on the inside), Florillicious, Floweret, Perky and Stripe. I also used the Bo Bunny Vicki B. 12x12 Adhesive Chipboard and Jewels. Here are some close-ups of the flowers:

The flowers are Prima Florets - Camille, Gisele and Sunshine. I added some Stickles to them to bling them up a bit! Aren't these baskets cute? I love them!

Have a Happy Easter!
