Happy Easter Treat Bags~

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone! 
Today I have a fun little treat bag to share with you using a couple files from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and a stamp set from My Craft Spot

I found this cute Little Duckling and Handled Treat Bag Topper 2 file at PPPR and put this fun little treat bag together for Arya to give her little daycare friends for Easter. 
The Little Duckling is cut at 3.10 x 1.48 and the Handled Treat Bag Topper is cut at 4.44 x 3.96. I cut them all on the cameo and then got busy adhering the pieces together. I decided for more stability I would staple the red topper piece to the bag. I then layered the pink piece which covers up the staples up perfectly. I stamped the sentiment with My Craft Spot's Jar Full of Spring 
stamp set which has now been discontinued but there are many other stamp sets available for your Easter projects~to see them, go HERE
Isn't this duck just adorable! 
I finished by adding a small bow to the duck using Maraschino twine and then with foam tape, adhered it to the toppers.  
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Cardz TV Challenge #5 Easter
2.) Pause Dream Enjoy~ Linky Party #8 Anything Goes
3.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #45 Happy Easter

You're Eggs-tra special!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having an awesome week!
I can't believe Easter is in just a few days! Yikes!

I purchased the cute Trio of Chicks file from My Scrap Chick a few weeks back. I cut the adorable chick box a few days back......to view, go HERE and today decided to make the A2 card set that was in that file to. The pattern papers I chose are from Reminisce~Hangin' with my Peeps collection. 
The stamped the face with PK1357 Sweet on You Face stamp set.  I colored in the eyes, added glossy accents and finished with a cute bow using lilac bakers twine. The egg was inked with TH spiced marmalade for dimension.
 I embossed the feet with the tiny bubbles folder for added texture.  I used a SU punch for the tiny label and stamped the sentiment with My Craft Spot's Postage Stamps stamp set.  It was popped with a "wobble" onto the purple mat that was embossed with the dots folder. 
I added an extra panel that was not in the set that I cut 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 and used a Martha Stewart punch for a fun scalloped border. I stamped the sentiment and tiny flower with My Craft Spot's Happy Easter stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 14-06 Color/photo

Thank you

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week so far!
Can you believe it's already the middle of April?? Hard to tell around here with the cold temperatures lately :( We've had just a few days above 50 and that's about it so far. We are under a winter storm for tonight and tomorrow with up to 6 inches of snow.... I am praying there are wrong!!!

On a happier note.....It is my DT day over at My Craft Spot and I have a fun project to share with you today using the Simply Sentiments stamp set.

I was checking out the files at My Scrap Chick and found this cute file I just had to make :)
 It is called the Nail Polish Bottle and Cap Trio
Isn't this just a fun 3D box??
I kept it the size the file downloaded in because I wanted to be able to put a couple small bottles of fingernail polish inside, a file and maybe even a gift card. 
The pattern paper is from Paper Studio and I embossed the layers with the Divine Swirls folder for a little texture along with some inking of the edges with TH victorian velvet.
The tag is My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies 2 metal die and stamped the sentiment with the Simply Sentiments stamp set.  I wrapped some fun tulle around it, tied a bow along with black Jute String bow and a pretty flower to the center. 
As you can see, the perfect size for adding a fun little gift inside:)
It would make a cute party favor idea for a birthday or bridal shower, don't you think?

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Just B Creative Crazy April Linky Party
2.) DL.ART April Linky Party

Dancing in the rain

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Happy Friday all!
Wow, this week flew by fast, don't you think?  It's been SO nice to have sunny skies and temps in the 50's this week! Absolutely lovin' it!

Today I have a fun card to share using an adorable cut file I picked up from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons called  Rainy Day Critters. Oh my gosh, if you haven't checked out Lisa's files, your missing out! She has SO many cute files and  remember she always has a" Freebie Friday" file available for you too!

When creating this card, I also kept in mind some fun challenges to play along in :) I haven't had the chance to play in some of these for a while so I was happy to join in!
Hope you like it :)
The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and base layer 4 x 5 1/4.  The pattern paper for the base layer is from Simple Stories Home Spun collection that I won over at Paper Issues a few weeks back.  I also used Echo Park ~Sweet Girl collection for the darling raincoat, boots and umbrella.

I cut a couple mats from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge at 3 3/4. I embossed one of the layers with the SU chevron folder. The cute frog is part of the Rainy Day Critter file and cut on my cameo. I inked the edges on some of the pieces to add dimension along with glossy accents and Viva Ruby Glitter to the raincoat and boots.
I stamped a darling little face on the umbrella with PK173~Great Vibes Robot stamp set, added rosy cheeks, freckles and glossy accents and then tied a bow on with green apple Divine Twine.
The label was created using My Creative Time's~Curly Label and Stitched Curly Label metal die. The sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's~I'm here for you Rain or Shine stamp set. I finished with 3 Girl JAM daffodil crinkle ribbon for the double bow.
I am entering this in the following challenges:

Happy Easter!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Good Morning!
It is my DT day over at My Craft Spot and have a fun project to share with you!  If you are looking for something to mass produce fairly quick and that kids would enjoy.....here ya go!
I picked up some yummy peeps at the store. Most kids (I think) love marshmallows right? Well, I took them and dipped each one in Wilton's vanilla candy melts and then sprinkled fun little candies on them.
After they set up, I put each one in a clear pretzel bag which fit perfectly. I made a tag using the Ribbon Banners~Straight metal die. I stamped the sentiment with the Happy Easter stamp set and then tied them to the pretzel bag with lilac twine :)
 Super easy and the kids will love them!
There is still a little time to join in the "Easter" challenge we have going on this week at My Craft Spot.  Be sure to come link up your project for a chance at this weeks prize:
