Egg Artist + Giveaway

Today is my last day on the blog and for this last post, I wanted to create a scrapbook layout using the fun spring colors in the Jocelyn line.

Easter is almost upon us and I thought I had done the smart thing by purchasing egg dying kits, tools, and plastic eggs after Easter last year at 75% off, but it has turned into a bugger, because when I dragged the Spring d├ęcor boxes out and my girls saw these items, it has been a daily hassle of saying no to “mom, can we decorate eggs?”. Ayiyiyi. Only a few more weeks left and then we’ll be doing just that.

I went through my photos at Easter time last year and dug up some fun shots of Morgan during her intense decorating session. They were the perfect colors for this layout:


And here’s a detailed shot:


Hmm. Someone thought this layout should have been about them……

Let’s try this:



I loved the glitter covered borders, and wanted to bring some detail to the page, so added stitching and a border punch, and finished it off with some fun brads.

Thanks for spending the week with me! And a huge thanks to SEI for asking me to be here. Have a great Spring! Davinie

There are just so many good ones to choose from but I am going for the Easter LO!! I love the way you used multiple photos and kept the design simple and did a few subtle things with the embellishments!

The garland was my favorite. So simply sewn and cute. Paper patterns always look so different when punched and I like that.

I loved the tutorial on making an Easter basket. It was so darn easy. This little basket will be making its presence known for birthdays as well.

The Easter basket was really cute, but I was totally inspired by kid's clothing!

lillianchild said...

My favorite post this week was the quick and easy (and too darn cute) easter basket instructions. I've already made several for my nieces and nephews and have had such fun making them I might start several dozen for my grandson's entire daycare (grinning). Thanks so much!

Scrapycandy said...

Janell said...

My favorite was the Easter basket post. I'm going to make a few of these and fill with goodies to give to my friends.

Little GTO said...

Without a doubt I choose the scrapbook page! The layout is second to the pictures. So many layouts get so busy the pix fade into the background. Of course it doesn't hurt to have one cute little girl as the subject!

I just love the Jocelyn line with its vibrant colors. My favorite post this week was definitely the Easter Basket. I love learning new ways to carry on old traditions.

diana albright said...

my fave post by Davinie this week would have to be the "Inspired by kid's clothing" post. My 2-month old daughter has the cutest clothes! I've been so wrapped up in her, though, that I didn't think of her cute little outfits as inspiration. Thanks SEI & Davinie!

Cynthia B. said...

I've loved all the posts- Davinie is so talented! But I guess my fave is the Inspired by kids' clothing: cute outfits, cute kids, and cute paper?! How can you lose? ;) (I'll be using that ruffled technique soon!
Thanks, Davinie, and thanks SEI for the chance to win!

Scoobie said...

Thank you for providing us with all these great ideas for easter. I really liked the wreath, but will give the basked a try, too.

TFS!

Chereazy said...

My favorite post was the egg artist post. I love looking at scrapbook pages to inspire me on my own. Love the creativity and the color combinations. It was such a bright bold page. I would second the spring garland post after that. I love that you can alter it for any season!

Valerie said...

I like the garland post. I've been wanting to make a garland for awhile. Should actually do it!

Jodi R said...

The Easter baskets were so cute but the spring garland was my fave...a great project for my girls, Thanks!

ShellyJ said...

Loved all of your projects! ... but your page is fabulous :)

Monika said...

How lucky. I came back to post a comment about how much fun we had making 2 Easter baskets...how creative and inventive. Something I'll be telling the Girl Scout leaders about. Thanks.

So, the Easter Basket post was #1 and the Spring Garland was #2...I made one for St. Pat's Day with stamps and punches and hole punched them and used baker's twine (even though it's red and white, but I have about 3 million feet of it!!!!) to hang it in our front window!

heyitsamanda said...

I really enjoyed the card inspired by the dress. I liked how you were able to connect the two designs and how they matched perfectly. Great job!

jonim52 said...

I just love the post "Inspired by kid's clothes": so fresh and pretty.

Linda E said...

I laove everything that Davinie does but I think the wreath is my absolute favorite.

Nynaboo said...

I loved the Easter Basket post. There are so many different ways to make paper baskets, but this is the easist version I've ever seen!!I've already made one for my china cabinet and will be making one for the table in my entry way soon. Thanks for all the great ideas.

smahrty said...

All the projects were super cute, but think the garland and E. basket will be coming to life at my house!

Debbie H said...

Ashleigh said...

I really enjoyed the last post actually! The story about her children repeatedly asking to decorate resonated with me b/c I made that mistake with the Christmas gingerbread house!

Tab said...

I loved the spring garland! It was so cute, and totally wanted to come up with some to hang in my daughter's room all year long :)

Cortnie said...

Love love love the layout!!! Just did 4 Easter pages this weekend... Shouldve waited!!! LOL! Thanks for the ideas!!!

Kristina said...

My favorite post is the inspired by kids clothing, because that is how I plan my layouts and select my papers. By imitaing the patterns and colors used in my daughters' clothes. I get some really great design cues like mixing prints and stipes and contrasting solids. Who knew, I'm not the only one? :)

Debra said...

I liked the Easter basket as well. What a simple and easy way to decorate. You can make it as simple or extravagant as you want! Love it. Will be doing it soon! :)

KJ said...

Can I say ALL of them?? I love the easter basket post the best, me thinks!!

I loved the easter basket! I posted this on my blog to share with my all my "stay at home mom" friends who have time {yeah right} to make one for their little Bunnies for Easter. I also liked the St. Patricks day broach! too cute... I know that was several weeks ago... but loved it!
