Some projects for Spring?

It is a wet and rainy Friday here in "Sunny" California. We thought Spring was here, but I guess Mother Nature has a bone to pick with us or something.

I have some springtime projects to share, thinking that Spring will be here...soon?

See the hand in the picture below? That is my 6 year old sons hand.

He gets jealous I always use his sister as my model, so today he is the star.

His hands are small and so is my little spring project he is holding.

I started making this cone with the largest Scalloped Circle in the Large Circle Stackers.

I am using the Core' dinations Whitewash Collection in this project.

I embossed the paper with the BANDANA embossing plate.

I then lightly sanded to reveal the core. I think it looks like my cone is dusted with powdered sugar.

I used the Daisy Chain Border to wrap around the cone and also to create the handle.
These are so tiny, they would hold a couple of pieces of chocolate.
Perfect size for a little love.

I know this might sound silly, but because this was such a small piece, I felt like I needed to show another project I just finished.

This was a little time consuming and required lots of patience but the final result was well worth it!


I started cutting the paper from the Wittle Weaver Die.

I then attached them all, forming one continuous strip and then I created the lantern.

Mono-filament thread, crystals, pearls and butterfly's dangle from the bottom to add to the eye appeal and fun.
Of course I used the BUTTERFLY BUNDLES DIES for my butterflies.

Now that the weekend is here, have I inspired you to go an make something for Spring?
I hope so. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Friday and I will be back next week.
Ta ta for now - Jeannie.
