Hop into Spring with the Pals

If you've hopped over from Gina, Cards By Gina, I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find inspirational ideas for papercrafted creations from Mary Fish's Stampin' Pretty Pals! We'll be showcasing all that Stampin' Up! has to offer! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP below and you'll be back on track! We're thrilled to have you visit and excited to hear what you think about our Spring and Easter themed projects! Please feel free to leave as many comments as you'd like along the way!

I've been having lots of fun playing with the Egg-cellent Eggs Kit in the Occasions Mini. And I will show you that its not all about the egg :)
There is a bunny too :) Seriously, you will see I've used this kit to embellish a lot of projects, so far :) I still have so much more left! It is packed with die cut flowers, stems, leaves, egg stands (or borders as I used them), rub-ons, ADHESIVE BACKED RHINESTONES - shazam, bling bling!! I know, enough chatter, on with the show...

Click on any photo to enlarge.
This is a small cello bag that I used the rub-ons directly onto the cello. A Bashful Blue Top Note cut from the Big Shot is decorated with more Rub-Ons and a Certainly Celery Ribbon (sorry, this is retired, but the Certainly Celery Satin will work just the same and look marvelous!). No, this isn't a decorative ribbon, I used rub-ons directly onto the ribbon!!! Isn't that awesome?!(yes, it will work on your Satin Ribbon too!!).
The card is just a sample of something very clean and simple you could kreate with all these pieces too. Do you see the center bling? Love it!!

Ok, here is your egg...I picked it up at a local craft store and using glue dots adhered little blingy flowers all over.
And here is your bunny... oh ain't it cute? My punch art bunny sitting on this cute little frayed grass - an egg stand transformer ;) with a few flowers in the little basket. This opens up to reveal some yummies in little 'holders' made from the Matchbox die. I'm not sure where this idea originated, but I knew I had to try and make one, so I kreated my own template - very simple! I'll post directions here this week, so you can keep hopping.

And if you missed my Milk Cartons from the other day, look how you can decorate with this awesome kit

I hope you enjoyed seeing what you can do with the Egg-cellent Eggs Kit (I still have SO much left too). It looks like alot of time involved here, not so much, the kit makes it SO easy!!! Some bang for your buck I'd say!!! Well, lets get hoppin...
