My Cricut Craft Room Theme: Easter Eggs & Grass

Welcome to my Theme Day Thursday! For today's theme we are to use Easter Eggs and Grass in our project. For my project I created a Layout using a Easter Bunny picture from when my Daughter was 1. It was her first official picture with the Easter Bunny! I hope you all enjoy today's project!

The cute little sayings around the layout I bought from Archivers I don't know what paper line it was but it was in the Easter Section. The bunny is from Easter 2010 along with the Grass. I welded the grass together in CCR. The Bunny is about 4.50 the eggs are from a CCR exclusive called Easter Basket I cut the eggs out at 1.30. The mat behind my photo is from a rectangle on Art Philosophy cut at 7.61x5.36. As you can see I love glitter and the background paper had glitter as well as mat so I kept that going throughout my layout. I hope you enjoyed today's project.

Erica's Craft Room- Technique!!!

Today over at we were given a challenge, to use flowers but not in a vase. I knew instantly what I wanted to make as I have become obsessed with Flowers and using my CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. This is also a Home Decor Project and I'm sure most of you will love it.

I cut my flowers at 3.50 (about 200 of them) and sprayed them with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Once they were dried I rolled them with a quilling tool and hot glued it together. When I was ready to place the flowers around my wreath (I used a 14" wreath from Hobby Lobby in the craft department) I pulled out my pearl head pins I bought from Walmart (100 for 3.00) and stuck them directly through the middle of the flower onto the wreath. Now normally I do wrap my wreaths in ribbon but since I'm pretty good at hiding the white and I use so many flowers I didn't see the need to. You could paint your base first or wrap it in ribbon that's up to you.

After I was done with my wreath it was beautiful but it was missing something. I knew I wanted to add butterflies and I've become very fond of my Art Philosophy cartridge so I used the butterfly on it. I cut the large butterfly at 3.00 and the two smaller butterflies at 2.00. I did use glitter paper and had to adjust my speed to 3 when cutting the smaller ones on my AE2 machine.  I did hot glue the butterflies to the roses and I only put hot glue on top layer in the middle middle/body part of the butterfly so the wings would like kind of 3D.

To purchase some of the goodies I used on today's project like glimmer mist and paper please visit Erica's store at
