egg hunt scrapbooking

Welcome to the last day of sneak peek projects for the release countdown. The 15th - that's tomorrow - is the day to purchase everything I have been showing you the past week! The Egg Hunt stamp set, patterned paper, egg die, Background Basics: Tin Types stamp set, impression plates, Fillable Frames #1 stamp set, and Fillable Frames #1 die (whew!) will all be available for sale at Papertrey Ink!

It's been so much fun sharing projects with all of you this week and thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback. It means so much to me to know that you all are enjoying and are excited about all of the things I have been working so hard on this past year! This is going to be a great year for me at Papertrey Ink - this is only the beginning :)


I went back into my Egg Hunt inspiration station to put together this one last project to share. I have been working hard to get my family's photos organized, out of boxes, printed, and into albums. This is the year that I will get caught up and get a system set up. In sorting all the photos, I am inspired to get some scrapping done. One of my albums is all Easter and so I put this page together of my sweet Tacy from Easter of 2002. This was before I had my digital camera and yet I still managed to take so many photos. Using the square punch was a great way to group all of those pictures together on a page.


I added one square of some Egg Hunt patterned paper and embellished it with a punched scallop circle and an egg topped off with a button. I cut apart one of the Egg Hunt sentiments and added it down the side of the layout.


On the bottom of my photo collage, I added a strip from one of the pages of patterned paper and then bits of my scalloped trim I had left over from other projects.

On this last day of sneak peeks, you will want to stop by Nichole & Dawn's blogs to see the new Luck of the Irish set. Nichole and Melissa will also be showing projects with Alli Miles' new Take Three: Spring set. Don't forget that you can find more peeks at Niki, Melissa & Kim's blogs too!

And then tonight from 10PM - midnight EST is the countdown release party over in the Papertrey Ink forums. I will be there to celebrate, chat, and have fun with everyone there!

Thank you so much again for a great release countdown. It's finally here!
