Almost Easter

 Happy Easter everyone,

I think it is important that crafters be informed of their options. 

There are some really good die-cut machines on the market
at the moment that are of high quality materials. And can cut proper circles!
Here is a quick list of some of them, and these are in no certain order:
1. Silhouette SD
2. Boss Kut-Gazelle
3. Black Cat Lynx
4. Black Cat Cougar
5. E-craft
6. Pazzels

And please, please research these cutters to find out which is best for you. You can go here and read the reviews of some of the machines. Jin has done a fab job:) 
And OMG Lettering Delights hit 10k members on FB!!!! Congrats everyone, and to thank their fans they are giveing away free sets!! 11 freebies to be exact and you can find them here.
Lettering Delights is awesome!!! Love their SVG files!!
Also I will be putting a list of sites on my blog to other blogs as well as stores that have FREE SVG files and sell SVG files. So be watching for that :)

So ok, I thought I would post a few things I have been working on for Easter. 
I hope you like them :)
Cadbury Egg Box
 This is the top and I used a Free SVG file from SVGCUTS.COM you can find it here

 This is the inside of the box.

Easter Baskets
 These are cute Easter Baskets I made using MTC Software.
This Basket was made from a 12x12 piece of cardstock. 
I put lace around the top of it to spice it up a bit lol. 
And on the sides there are flowers where I joined the handle.
I also made a macthing card.

 The stamp is from Penny Black: Easter Bonet
I used Promarkers to colour the image in and then added some glossy accents to a couple places.

Small Easter Baskets

The bunny SVG is also free and you can find it here at Jennifer Scrap Shack. 
I kept proportions and sized it to 3and 1/2 wide
I used my Sizzix texture plate to emboss them and then added a bit of cotton wool for the tail. 
The top basket is for a boy and the one beneath is for a girl. On the boy baskets I used dark colour buttons instead of flowers where the handle joins. 
Also I stapled the handles on to give them a bit of re-enforcement.

 These easter baskets were sized at 8x8  
The handle was 1and1/2 inches wide by 10 inches long....
might of been shorter cant find the paper I wrote it down on lol , 
so size to whatever suits your needs.

Size comparison
This picture is to just show the size difference between the 2 baskets.
Thanks for looking :)
