"Inspired By" Blog Hop Hosted by

Hello!  Glad you can join us for Joy's Life's "Inspired By" Blog Hop!

If you came over from Maria then you are in the right spot.  If you stumbled across this post and want to start hopping from the beginning, you can do so here.

  I must have been hungry when I got my inspiration for this hop!  I remembered seeing these cool Rainbow cakes and figured with all this color, I ought to be able to create SOMETHING!

With Easter right around the corner I used pastel, instead of primary colors for my project. 

Here's what I came up with!

It's a neat candy container stamped with sayings from Joy's Everyday and Holiday Occasions sets.  If you'd like a set of your own, grab them here.  
Now for a look at the backside of the mug.  (I know I could have added something to the candy sleeves but decided that the mug would be the main focus.  It was also getting a bit cramped after I stuffed all the sleeves in.)

For this fairly simple project, I covered a glass mug with papers and stickers from Doodlebug's new Flower Box collection.  I then stamped "Happy Easter" with Memento's Rose Bud ink and added a brad to the center of the flower on banner.   I then wrapped twine around the handle to spice it up a little.  M&M's were sorted by color and then packaged in 1x8 cellophane bags to give the rainbow effect. 

OK, you've stuck with me so far so...
*** how about some GREAT Blog Candy?? ***

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hi, everyone! I've got a fun St. Patrick's day project for you!

I thought since I married into a Bailey family, I ought to post something today to celebrate the occasion!  

Here's a fun door hanger to brighten up your day.

When I was cutting this, I thought the pattern was super cute but I think the cuteness factor went way over the top after I added Joy's stamp from her Yummy Puns set!

You can check out Joy's stamps here.  She's also has THREE new sets coming out!  Joy's offering some great pre-order and bundle deals so I hope you'll check them out. 

This adorable SVG comes from SVGCuts Charm and Chance set.  I cut it out using Sure Cuts A Lot software and my Cricut.  You can also use your Silhouette with their files.  I resized the file to fit my door knob and added some glitter paper for the shamrock to spice it up a bit.  The banner is a strip of paper that I cut by hand and popped up with some foam tabs.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a safe and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
