Easter Printables

See post below regarding these printables. As I said in my previous post I got the sayings for the ladies at eighteen25! I decided, because I am nuts, to stay up till 11:30 and make bigger versions of the tags below! Now I am off to watch American Idol! Enjoy! I am putting some peeps in a bowl and some marshmallows in another, putting these printables in frames, and putting them right next to their corresponding bowls! Easy!!!! Print in 4x6 size. Hopefully they aren't blurry... I haven't printed mine yet!

Stolen Easter Tag Sayings

So I saw this tag and this one too over at eighteen25 and loved them! The only thing is I wanted to wrap my treats up a little differently so I created my own tags with these sayings. (Hopefully this is legal?) My original intention was to create a full sheet of each tag, but as you can see below that just didn't happen because I got lazy! You see I have to enter every dot, line, piece of grass, egg, bird, etc. etc. by hand for each tag. There is no such thing as copy and paste the "whole thing" on picnik, which is where I make my tags. If there is and you know please tell me!!!!! (I am going to feel pretty dumb if I have wasted hours of my time on the "what seems like" millions of tags I have made over time.) It absolutely stinks that I have to make each tag from scratch! Ah! I am so glad that there are creative people out there that I can just copy!!! Thanks ladies at eighteen25 for the catchy sayings! Love them!
By the way, I printed mine in the standard size but with 4 copies per page. That way the whole page gets filled up and paper is not wasted! And the tags will be blurry if you print them too big. So stick with 4 copies per page or a 4x6 size print. Hopefully this makes sense!

Here are some darling pictures of my cute boy! We go on a walk everyday. I say, "Jackson do you want to go on a walk?" and he runs to his car and climbs in! So cute! Today, however, we went on an extra long walk and I realized as we turned to come home that he was out like a light! Head bobbing all over the place. I wish I would have taken a picture! Shucks! Anyways, enjoy the pictures. This is little guy is going to be 15 months tomorrow! I can hardly believe it!

Spring Blocks

I made these while Jackson was taking a nap the other day! I am currently writing this post with him in my lap as he is throwing a fit because he can't see pictures of himself on the computer right now. I think I need to stop telling him how cute he is! ha!

Anyways, I used my lucky blocks and the clover block I made for St. Patty's Day and just turned them around to make these Spring Blocks. I used the Springtime line by Echo Park. I bought like 8 different pieces and had a hard time choosing which ones to use. I tried to make the i in Spring look like a flower which is why I did the i in green paper. Not sure if it is working out but I will leave it for now.

I used mod podge, ribbons, buttons, and my Alphalicious cartridge for the letters. I also made a paper flower by cutting out 4 small circles, crumbling them in my hand, flattening them out, stacking them up while gluing them together, and adding a button to finish it off. I just realized I forgot to ink the edges! Darn! The pink flower on the i is made from silk material. I just cut circles (free handing them) and held them over a flame to curl the edges. Then I stuck a teal brad in the middle.

These were so easy! Honestly anyone can do them!

Please don't judge the blocks by these horrible pictures! When it is cloudy outside I have the worst lighting in my house! The blocks are actually above my kitchen cabinets but it was too hard to get a picture of them up there.
