February Ladies Class Projects

For February's Ladies Class projects I knew I wanted to create some kind of Easter, but I also wanted to use some of the new goodies in the Occasions Catalog. I was so conflicted that the only logical thing to do was to make 3 different projects.

I have the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits (135853) for quite a while and never used them. I was so intimidated by them that I never even tried to make one. But when I saw the idea of punching a hole and adding a chocolate bunny, I put my fears aside and I did it! Oh my goodness they are so adorable AND so easy!

Don't they remind you of the sugar shaped eggs that have the little Easter scene inside?

For the Easter card we used the Work of Art Stamp Set. Isn't that Easter Egg cute? I always get hung up on the fact that I don't have an "egg" shaped framelit so I don't venture out of my zone to use a plain ol' oval. I'm so glad others are not as limited and show that it is ok to use an oval for an egg.

For the Occasions Catalog product I decided I wanted to share the  Cups & Kettle Framelits (140624). I don't know what it is about tea cups, but I love them! I am the Scrap Saving Queen, and I try to use them when I can. The paper I used is the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (138443)
I love using Dimensionals so we glued the bottom of the cup and used Dimensionals for the top of the cup to give it a little bit of a 3-d effect.
We also used the A Nice Cuppa Stamp Set (140683). You would never know to look at it, but the middle of the cup didn't stamp well. I'm sure it was because I was using an old, wavy ink pad. So how did I fix it? I stamped the heart from the set in the middle. Now it looks like I meant to do that!
I love how sometimes you can make a mistake, and if you didn't give it away, the other person would think you meant to do that and would want to know how you did that cool technique. Ha! If they only knew.

What do you think?
