Hello everyone! Welcome to the Pebbles blog! I am Eva Pizarro, and today I am going to show you an easy and fun Easter layout. I am using the new Spring Fling collection – the pastel colors and the designs are perfect for birthdays, weddings, baby showers, parties and even Easter! If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, you can view a preview of the entire collection here. I know you are going to love it!
My layout is called “The Hunt” and tells the story of my first Easter egg hunts. I loved to search for all those tiny chocolate eggs all over my house. We only had those little ones back then, but they are still my favorites. I hope that I can pass this tradition to my toddler now.
For this layout I chose a Color Blocking technique so I could use all those wonderful papers. I placed my picture on my page and then framed it with little pieces of paper. I glued the papers with only a bit of liquid glue on the center.
Here in Chile we don’t have many scrapbook stores so I am used to stretching my paper as far as it can go. To make my frame, for example, I simply cut 4 strips of paper and cut the angles at 45 degrees. There’s no need to use a whole piece of paper!
To add some texture I stitched my pieces of paper to my page with my sewing machine. It is very important that you don’t have tape adhesive in the borders of your squares, otherwise your machine needle could jam.
Next, I added my title and some embellishments. I used mostly my die cuts and glued them with dimensional dots to make them pop.
Aren’t these bunnies the cutest? I cut them from the B side of this paper.
With a wide needle, I made tiny holes in my layout and hand stitched them with some embroidery floss. I used 3 strands.
To make the holes easier, place your layout on top of a soft surface, like a cushion or a couch.
Glue your bunnies with dimensional dots to give the impression they are hopping to the chocolate eggs and finish your layout with some final embellishments and journaling.
I really like the vellum embellishments that are included now in the die cut ephemera packs. They are perfect for layering!
These gold alphas add the perfect finishing touch.
And for my journaling, I used some speech bubbles left over from this project!
I hope that you liked my project this week, and I wish you a very Happy Easter!
