I spent the weekend on a crafting weekend with some other crafty ladies here in Austin. It was so much fun! It has been awhile since I spent the entire weekend being creative. It did me a lot of good. Diana, the organizer, rented a space called The Stitching Studio. We all brought our own stuff to work on and then when we were ready to call it quits for the night we could leave our stuff out, go home and sleep in our own bed, and come back the next day. This worked out so well! Some people were working on scrapbooks, some were working on quilting, some on cards, and some on kits. We all brought snacks and took turns bringing lunch. I could go on and on. Suffice it to say I had a great time with all of these ladies!
One of the main projects I worked on over the weekend was decorating a perpetual calendar. Stampin' Up! provided a kit for one last year. Most of the pages looked the same and were kind of boring in my opinion. I wanted to make a unique page for each month and that's what I did with my stamps, inks, and embellishments. I plan on offering as a club for my customers this year.
The stamp set I used for April was Basket Bunch. I actually used the bundle with the framelits. I stamped and die cut a bunch of bunnies, eggs, and carrots ahead of time. I wasn't sure which ones I would use on the page so I made up several. With the leftovers I created a couple of baby cards with the bunnies. Here is the baby girl version I made over the weekend:

All supplies can be ordered on my website here. And the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies are finally off of backorder! You better order them while you can. These flew off the shelf when they were first introduced in November. They exceeded all expectations. I am loving mine!
I will share the baby boy card I made tomorrow on my blog.
Thanks for stopping by today!
