Very simple card, just colored the frog and flower,stamped the background lightly, added the seam binding bow, die cut from Spellbinders “Lovely View” and adhere the layered sticker from the collection.  Frogs always remind me of spring.  Be sure to check out the other design team members creation on TIOT and come and play!          ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

My first design team project for Scrapadabadoo is making this Easter Basket using the Primrose collection from BoBunny. 
IMG_2030IMG_2035IMG_2031IMG_2037IMG_2023
I created the roses using Harty Clay Air Dry clay and used Cheery Lynn die as well as Martha Stewart Butterfly and butterfly scallop punches.
To create the basket you will need one piece of cardstock and one pattern paper:
IMG_2003
You will cut your paper 10” x 11”  you will use the 1” x 12” for the handle. 
Then score on the 10 inch side at 3 1/4” x 6 3/4”
You will score your paper on the 11 inch side 3 1/2” & 7 1/2”
then mark the 4” square in the middle at the 2” and cut the triangle piece. 
IMG_2001
Cut 1’” on each side to the score mark and then cut 3  into 3/4” strips to the score.
IMG_2002
Assemble as follow:
IMG_2004
Glue the 1” piece together overlapping about 1/4”
IMG_2005IMG_2006IMG_2009IMG_2010
To decorated the eggs, I used the plastic eggs and covered with dictionary pages, glitter, added seam binding and Wild Orchard Craft flowers.
