March Blog Hop

Blog-hop-logo
Good Morning everyone, and welcome to PTI's March Blog Hop!
The theme is Sequins!
Enjoy my post and get in on the fun!
Nichole did a sequin shaker card, which inspired me to do one also, Easter themed.
Sequins are pretty flat and easy to put in a shaker. Just not so easy to photograph!
'Ingredients' at the end of the post.
 
2nd post is an Easter card with sequin focus. You buy the string of sequins and curl into a circle.
Just seemed to go with the foil bunny and aqua foil trim.
 
Next is a goodie I found in the Michael's sale bin.
 
Already sequined and ready to stick on a card!
 
One late last post to go along with the March Blog Hop
Funny story. I've been complaining about the lack of cute sequins in my neck of the woods.
Checking out the really unique and colorful posts on everyone's blogs today, I started to go through my sewing stash, which has taken a backseat to my paper stash (anyone know what I mean?).
Guess what I found? The cutest braid with tiny flower sequins!
Got out the burlap bags from PTI and went to work!
Made 3 quick bags for chocolate eggs for the girls. (The boys know grandma loves to make things, and they sweetly tolerate me and my cutesy cards! But the girls are big fans).
Quick bunny cuts from Polka Dot Parade, some lace and rick rack and a few embroidery stitches on each bag, and done!
Hope it gives you an idea. Not that we all don't have enough to do between now and Easter!
Happy Hopping (te he!)

  6. Ack, what a great idea!! I don't think I've seen a shaped shaker before, at least not an easter bunny. LOVE it!! Your flowers are really pretty too, great idea to use the sequins already on a string : )

  17. WOW ~ you really went to town making sequins the star of the show. These are awesome and such different uses for sequins. Stringed sequins curled for a flower really add to the Beautiful Blooms!

  22. Your sequined cards are just adorable - but what I really like are those darling little bags you decorated with sequins for Easter. These are absolutely adorable - what child wouldn't be thrilled to receive treats in these!

  23. Your cards are all beautiful and the detail, oh my!! I'm a little partial to the sacks, knowing what they're filled with. You've got some lucky Grandkids!!

  24. OMG!! I am glad I came to visit!! You have been BUSY!! ALL of your creations are so NEAT!! Yes I used helmar quickdry glue!!

  25. WOW!!! You have been one busy lady, but these are all so wonderful!!! I don't even know where to start, because I seriously love them all... but those bags are the best! How cute to use them on the tails!!! I'm in awe!

    ReplyDelete
  26. All your projects are super nice. Love those chocolate bags!! Yes I know what you mean about the paper stash taking over the sewing stash :)

  27. Fabulous cards and burlap bags, Nancy. You have created such beauty here, I am almost ready to 'hunt' for more sequins around my house :o)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow! You've been busy! Love the cute little bunnies with the sequin tale! What a cute idea. The burlap bags look great. Also love the butterfly! Beautiful.

  29. I'm always amazed at how you can add so much to a card without it feeling like too much. Love the shaker bunny, sequins wound in a circle, and the neutrals against that fabulous pink bunny. One of the things I totally wanted to do (but never had time for) was to use sequins as a bunny's tail. I love how you did that on your bags. It's absolutely darling. You amaze me! (P.S. Thanks for your kind comment...we're hoping he is well soon, too!)

  30. Absolutely fabulous projects!!! I love each and every one!

  31. What cute projects! Love the sequins on a string--mine are all individual. That butterfly is wonderful, too--great find!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my goodness!!! You have hit it out of the park! So many gorgeous projects and elements. I love the flower centres you created the most I think (or maybe the first card with the strawberries/shaker... or maybe the bunny bags.... so hard to chose!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. You are an over-achiever, Nancy, which is fantastic for all of your readers! Really astounding creations!!
