Easter Fill in the Blanks


I am always amazed by the Easter story and think this holiday and it's memories deserve a special page.  So, I started with special paper, special embellishments and a Cricut cut to make this Easter page.  I cut the circular widow with the Paper Lace Cartridge in black card stock.  I used The Robin's Nest Crackle Glitter Card stock in Orange, Blue and Pink and a bit of purple card stock to for the window panes.  To get the stain glassed look I used, liquid glass on top of the Crackle Glitter Card stock and put a few Neon Dew Drops on the window panes.  Here's a tip for cutting all those colored window panes:  cut circles and place behind the window panes.  You will need to notch how the pink and blue circles to show the purple and orange details, but this is so quick and easy compared to cutting each window pane!


The title is made with the Stampin' Up banner punch, Close to My Heart Egg stamps and white letters from The Robin's Nest.  I used mini Neon dew drops between the banner pennants.  For the bottom corner detail, I used a Stampin' Up stamp,  the Epiphany Crafts flower punch with matching bubble caps.  And I used their Flower 25 punch and matching Clear Flower Shape Bubbles. 
I originally had only one banner, but thought the page too empty.  So, I added a second banner in a smaller scale using a Martha Stewart punch.  I cut each scalloped circle in half and strung them together.  Here is my before photo.
I also wanted to fill the blank space in the bottom left hand corner.  So, I stamped a swirl and added flowers.  To create the flowers at the bottom right of the photo mat.  For the center of the flowers, I used The Robin's Nest Neon Mini Dew Drops.  I love these mini dew drops for flower centers!  I fussy cut The Glitter Leaf card stock for the green leaves.
