Lots of fun at the beach

My turn to share a page using products from The Robin's Nest Store.  These papers were so much fun to use.  These are my grandkids having their first experience with Lake Superior which they found out is a very cold lake.


Please check out the Chattering Robin's Blog to see how I created this page.  Don't forget to check out the other beautiful papers and embellishments at The Robin's Nest Store.

How to create a beautiful Bigger Bitty Bucket from Whisker Graphics

Colleen here with a pretty girly project. I saw this Bigger Bitty Bucket https://www.whiskergraphics.com/bigger-bitty-bucket.html in the store and I could just see it turned into a sweet little girl gift.


Here is my finished project:


I started with my sizzix dies and cut out the flowers using material that I had. Once the flowers were cut out, I layered them in the order I wanted and then misted all the flowers very well. I twisted the flowers up and held them in place with a binder clip and left them to dry. I left mine overnight to make sure they were nice and dry.















While the flowers were drying. I cut out some vines using a sizzix die. I also cut out a doily using a Cherry Lynn Die and inked the edges with pink. I also used a Cherry Lynn die to cut out two butterflies. Since this is for a little girl I wanted to make sure it sparkled so I added some glitter to make sure you could see it sparkle. I added a few beads down the center for the body.


I adhered the doily to the top of the bucket and used a pop dot to make it stand up. Then I added the flower on top of the doily.


The next step is to finish decorating the bucket or if you desire you could leave it with just the flower on top.


I used the rest of my flowers to add to the front of the bucket and some ribbons on the handle.




One thing I love about these buckets is the key is hooked right to the handle which makes it so easy to open.


I had so much fun creating this little girl pretty bucket. You are so going to want to pick up a few buckets to create wonderful, easy and beautiful gifts. Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.
