Scrapbook Layout 2: Easter

Here is an Easter layout that I created with DCWV's Garden stack and Nana's Kids stack.   All tear bear animals were hand-torn, fluffed, and then shaded with chalk.  All photo mats and journaling tags were fully machine stitched; the photo mats were inked with Color Box pigment ink (pastel).

Hatching chicks Easter title - one of the chicks has dropped his eggshell!

Egg house
The hinges used were just the right size for this house.

Each flower was secured with eyelets and brads.

To give some variety and contrast, different colors were chosen for the flowers and their centers.

Embossed rainbow
Saw this idea for embossing a rainbow and just loved it.


This bird has built herself a comfortable nest.

I was happy to find socks for this bunny.

Shy baby sheep

Surprise!  A catepillar is hiding in the tree.

This swing looks relaxing.


Wheelbarrow - looks like someone was collecting flowers.

Since the red plate is metal, and can be a little heavier than other embellishments used, it must be reinforced as much as possible.
These flowers have glitter on them, but it is a little hard to see in the picture.
A flower charm to match the flowers on the photo mat.
I love how this mat turned out; the sheer green ribbon matched the green in the paper very well.
Notice that the mats have been stitched as well?
There is also glitter on this photo mat, on the butterfly and flowers.  All mats were also reinforced in the corners with brads and eyelets.

I really liked the sturdiness and pastel combination of these tags.
