The new Wildwood Collage fits perfectly onto one of the Half a Dozen Eggs to create a sweet little Easter scene.  Don't you just love it when everything fits together like they were made for each other...and they were!  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a fresh spring design for you today.

Are you old enough to remember those precious hollow "window" eggs with the little Easter scenes inside?   That's my inspiration today - let's make a snailmail-able version of those vintage pieces.  Yes, objects from my childhood are now officially "vintage."

Cut the big egg from the Half a Dozen Eggs set from chartreuse cardstock.  Cut the Wildwood Collage.

Attach adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) to white felt and cut Springtime Bunnies.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps adhesives from soaking through the felt.

Cut glittered cardstock eggs using the small Clutch of Eggs dies.

Attach everything to a side-folded A-2 card of lime green cardstock.

Easter's my favorite holiday.  I love the colors, flowers, bunnies and dark chocolate eggs (not necessarily in that order) that  always make it so special, and pretty.    What's your favorite holiday?

Big thanks to everyone who took last weekend's SPRINGTIME IN SEATTLE class at Impress!  It was a chocolate-powered session - and we certainly flew through the cards and treat tote, and even ended ahead of schedule.    Thanks too - Ann and Karen - for helping us fill our baskets with all of the pretty, glittery supplies we need for Easter.

I've added a new special class from 1:00-3:00 this Saturday - it's ASIAN DESIGN...SIMPLY STATED.  We're making 7 cards, including a simple origami butterfly and a bunny with silkscreened artpapers.  It's time to stop saving those beautiful prints and start cutting them into accents, backgrounds and perfect squares for origami with our Memory Box and Poppystamps dies.  

Thanks for stopping by...
