Welcome to the first stop on the PCS Easter Bonnet Hop!

Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler Easter Bonnet Hop.

The PCS design team was given a challenge to create an Easter bonnet. The Sampler is an online publication featuring projects using Stampin’ Up! products based on themes, typically seasonal and holiday. The February issue, “Baskets, Bunnies and Bonnets” focuses on the upcoming Easter Holiday.

The template used by the design team was designed exclusively for the upcoming February issue of Paper Crafters Sampler. Be sure you check out the sampler and sign up by February 10th and your name will be entered in our monthly drawing for $15.00 of Samplers bucks. One lucky winner will be randomly selected on February 11th.

For now, I’d like to share with all of you the sample I’ve created using the Easter bonnet template in this months sampler. I especially love the white bonnet with the Swiss dots that I made by running my card stock through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka-Dots Textured Impressions folder. The butterflies were made with the Beautiful Wings embossilt. The brown bonnet was made using sheets from the Sweet Pea ds. I cut out some of the flowers to make the cardholder and decorated the brim of the bonnet with pink beads.
