Everything Easter Baskets from My Digital Studio!

When I saw the Everything Easter Ensemble for My Digital Studio, I knew I had to get it -- after all, it includes the images for one of my favorite stamp sets, Everybunny!  However, once I started using it, I also discovered that it includes an awesome Easter basket template (plus place cards, an egg centerpiece, and more)!!!  Anyway, I've been having so much fun making these baskets.  Here's a sampling of the baskets I've created so far:  

The basket on the far right is the size of the template initially in My Digital Studio.  I played around and discovered I could enlarge the baskets a fair amount without having any problems with pixelation when I printed them.   I printed these onto Whisper White and Very Vanilla Card Stock using my home printer, cut out and then embellished with multi-layer Boho Blossom and Bitty Shapes punch flowers, held together with brads and with leaves from the Bird Builder Punch.

I also experimented with adding different types of "trim" around the top.  As you can see below, I tried out the Lace Ribbon Border Punch and the Dotted Scallop Border Punch.  I think any of Stampin' Up!'s Border Punches would work well for this, though!

I filled the baskets with some shredded paper and goodies in Medium Cello Bags.  Then, I tied off the bags with Pool Party Seam Binding bows, and used Pool Party Baker's Twine to attach tags, which I also created using the Everything Easter Ensemble in My Digital Studio, then printed out.  They printed out the perfect size to punch out with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch!  Here's a closer view of one of the tags:

 And, here are a few more of the unfilled baskets:

I also had fun digitally decorating a basket before I printed it.  Here's how that turned out:

I again added a Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border around the top of the basket, and for this one used Subtle Flower Brads to hold on the handle.

I love the flexibility of My Digital Studio -- so many great possibilities with the Everything Easter Ensemble for Easter and Spring cards, treats, and more!!!  

 Thanks for visiting my blog!
