Paper Players 139 and Happy Easter!

A happy Sunday and a Happy Easter to everyone!  I hope you all have a restful, blessed day!  Jaydee is our hostess today and since it’s the fifth week of the month, we have a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!  Here you go:

I chose to go diagonally from left top to bottom right, and I have to admit, this was a real quick little project as it has been a busy week here:


This whole thing started with the gingham ribbon….it had been kicking around on my table for a couple of weeks so I thought I should just USE it!  I had one SU Kraft Gift Box (they are on page 161 of the catalog---at $2.95 for 4, they are a great buy!) left in my stash, so I covered it with some springy pink and green DP, then made a tag from the Two Tags die with some green striped paper and stamped and colored the rain boot from Bootiful Occasions for my embellishment.  The bow is tied on with some retired grosgrain ribbon, and it just slips off to get the goodies inside!!!


I used a blender pen to color in my boot with Primrose Petals ink….I wish I had a pair of boots like this!  I am sure I could use them splashing around in the spring rain that is sure to come!

I hope you can splash on over to the Paper Players blog to see the other springy creations our wonderfully talented team has stamped for you!  Share your project too!  Can’t wait to see it!

We had a lovely day yesterday with family and friends—a wonderful lunch and a fun Easter egg hunt with Cassidy:




And afterwards:  the lineup!


And finally, one more lovely Easter card I received from my friend Doris:


I love this embossing folder…she got it as a gift; anyone know who makes it?

Enjoy your day, in whatever way you spend it!


  1. Pretty projects! Happy Easter!

  2. Happy Easter to you too, LeeAnne! Hope you are spending it with your loved ones!

    Your little gift box is darling! Love that boot! hehe!

    GREAT pictures of the egg hunt. Looks like you had beautiful weather!!!

    Lovely card from your friend too!


    I googled it and found it here. Made by Darice?

  4. Happy Easter to you and your family LeAnne.
    Love the egg hunt pictures.

  5. Happy Easter to you and your family LeAnne. I love your gift box and Cassidy looks like she really enjoyed her egg hunt. I love that embossing folder as well, so if you do find out where it came from, please let us know.

    Have a great one.

  6. Hey LeAnne! I too would be interested in that embossing folder. I too would love to use that for next Easter or sympathy cards.

  7. WOW I love that embossing folder and your box is cute too. Looks like you had a good day. Happy Easter. He has risen.

  8. Such a pretty project, LeAnne! I love the mix of patterns (that gingham ribbon is soooo pretty) and you have nspired me to use those boxes that have been hanging around my craft room for entirely too long now. Cassidy sure looks like she had a fun time hunting for eggs, too. I hope you had a wonderful Easter, my friend! :)

  9. Leanne,
    The embossing folders made by Darice, it is called cross with words. I found it on eBay for $5. The seller I bought from had more available. The seller ID was " handmade-with-love.
    Good luck.

  10. Love this adorable little box and we certainly needed those rain boots yesterday!

    I'm on the lookout for that EF too. Isn't it lovely?

    Cassidy is quite the egg finder.

  11. Wow, what a cute little box and what gorgeous DSP, Leanne! Perfect project for the challenge and a great gift by itself.

  12. Gorgeous, LeAnne. I love that boot and the ribbon is fabulous. Great way to use the challenge.
    Happy belated Easter, too!

  13. I love the gingham ribbon on your cute little box! The dainty floral dsp looks so good on the kraft box, and I love the boot - I wish I had a pair like them, too.

  14. LeAnne, This is a great project, a lovely balance of color and texture. Might have to give the boots a second look. :) Brian

  15. What an adorable box! I love the designer paper and the sweet colors! Great project, LeAnne!

  16. What a great gift box! I love your papers and now I reget that I didn't get that stamp set! Cassidy just gets cuter and cuter! I'm glad to hear that you had a nice easter! :-)
