Easter Projects with Crate Paper Craft Market

Hello hello! Jennifer Chapin here, and today's Crate blog projects are all about Easter. It's just around the corner! It seems to have come much sooner this year, and here in the Midwest it has even been to chilly to hunt eggs! I created this layout using a photo of my kids from last year's Easter morning. They are always so excited to wake up and find out what is in their baskets, and we also hide eggs throughout the house. The Easter bunny even brought them their very own bunny ears!

I started out with a sheet of white cardstock and cut a 6" strip of the floral pattern from Craft Market. I knew I wanted to keep this side of the page simple due to the busy floral pattern.

I matted my photo on a sheet of neutral patterned paper, then added the title underneath with Memo Thickers from the Craft Market collection. These letters are so beautiful! I also added some more chipboard embellishments to round out this part of the layout. The bunny topped mason jar was also a perfect addition to this page. Who knew Craft Market was so versatile?

A technique I always seem to fall back on is typed journaling. I used the same color of white cardstock as my background, then typed the journaling on my typewriter and adhered to the page. I added chipboard diamonds from the Craft Market collection chipboard embellishment sheet as well.

Next up, a cute treat bag and Easter card. I used Craft Market as well on these projects; the linen bags are perfect for a quick gift for any occasion.

To make the card, I used a piece of smooth white cardstock and added a strip of patterned paper and stitching to the bottom. I then added chipboard letters as well as a happy sticker. I carefully added some pink mist droplets to the top of the card, then punched white butterflies and adhered to the card with tiny glue dots.

The result is a simple card that makes a big impact! Anyone would love to receive a card like this. I love the subtle dimension that the tone on tone butterflies create.

And a quick look at the tag on my linen sack. I simply embellished with a sticker and some enamel dots, then added a glittered mini clothespin from the Craft Market collection. Since the sticker did not say what I needed it to, I quickly typed out a sentiment and punched it with a 1" circle punch, adding it to my sticker. This works great for any use and you can customize stickers for any theme!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. Have a great week!
