Stampin pretty easter card pals paper arts four frames
6a00e54f95df928834014e5fae0d7e970c-320wi Are you ready to play this week's Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge (PPA84)? The Easter Bonnet (left) was the Design Team's launching pad for Spring ideas.  However, any paper project with a Spring holiday or look fits within the theme splendidly. Be sure to check out the PPA Design Team's samples HERE with the added bonus this week of a chance for blog candy if you participate. 


  • Stampin up happy easter card four frames The adorable polka dot frame (Four Frames) around the sentiment will be in the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog on July 1.  However, Stampin' Up! will offer a sneak peek opportunity for you  to purchase it in  April.
  • I love this Nursery Necessities Specialty Designer Series Paper for Easter.  Of course, with just a shift of the sentiment, it's ready to go for a baby card, too.  
  • These little bunny and chick boxes from my post earlier this week are charming way to dress up a Spring or  Easter table setting.  They each house a candy kiss.  Delicious.
  • Perhaps you have a different Spring holiday or occasion to celebrate?  Today's layout can evolve easily with a quick change of designer paper and sentiment.
  • Popping out the sentiment with an Oval Punch made placement easy.  Check out my video tutorial with similar ideas.
