Happy Freaky Easter


The Freaks are at it again! You probably arrived here via the irreverent and hilarious Brandy Wiggins-Cote (have you seen her scrapbook pages?!?!?)

If you are starting here? Welcome! Forward or backward this tour should give you a ton of Easter project ideas!


My first project was inspired by the uber-talented Gretchen Barron (a freak I might add!) and her mini matchbox drawer set. . . Ever since I saw that cutie I wanted to try it-but it hasn’t happened yet LOL!

Story of my life. . .


Anyhoo, I needed a bigger one so I used our Box #2 to make this dresser card kit for my oldest daughter. She is a crafty girl like her momma tries to be, so I wanted to make her something fun for Easter that she could make things with.

Some punched images, layers for them, ribbon, crayons. . .and an hour or two that mom doesn't have to entertain! Priceless!

I cut off the top of the box flaps, and cut some drawers from our So Saffron paper. I don’t know if you can see them, but I used little bead “spacers” behind our flower brads to give them a little boost! Stole ‘em from my daughter’s bead box. . .don’t tell!


But not every Easter project has to be that involved, right?

Here is a cutsey treat made with our Hugs Notes that can be found in the Occasions Mini catalog:


The super cute bunny is from the hostess set Picnic Parade (Occasions Mini), as are all the punched images from the above kit. He is cut out and layered on a 1in So Saffron circle.

That Satin Ribbon is a favorite right now :)

Inside the treat is a folded glassine envelope, with a few little chocolate eggs inside. Yummy!

Speaking of Hugs Notes. . .I have some folded in half to go with the kit above for making her little notecards. Just the right size for passing around at school!


That's it for this stop, and now you are off to visit Dawn Olchefske (love her!!) and see what she has to WoW you with . . . Have fun, and get stamping!
