So let's get to the inspiration for today's new Card Making & Paper Craft Scrapbook challenge...

Wendy - Hello everyone I hope you are having a good week. It's not long until Easter now so why not have a look on the Polkadoodles website as there are some beautiful collections perfect for your Easter projects. Today I'm sharing a card made with one of the gorgeous digital stamps by Lucy Monkman. This is the Cute Hen and Chicks image and I think they really don't need a lot of colouring to make a fabulous and very arty card. I've teamed this with a gold foiled sentiment from the Spring into Easter Collection and some simple mat and layering for a lovely and classy Easter card.

Åsa -Hi there crafty friends! It´s all about Easter gifts today and I made this candy box. I´ve used this adorable digi Cute Bunny Rabbit sitting on Easter Egg. I colored my image with copics and made some grass in the background. The sentiment comes from Spring Flower Mothers Day Friends greetings sentiments.

Betsy - Today's card features Gil Rabbit Growing Sunflowers. In honor of spring I've turned them into daisies! I composed my card in the computer using Winnie's Celebration Kit 1 Papers 2 for my background. I used an excess piece of the green stripe and die cut it with a grass border die. I colored up Gil using Copic markers. I used a side folding card base with a white scalloped panel, then the panel I popped up on foam. I adhered the sentiment to the top left. I embellished with a white gel pen, tiny iridescent butterflies, a heart button on Gil's overalls and tiny yellow flowers.
Copic colors used: Yg00, Y02, Y15, Y17, YG11, YG63, YG23, B000, B01, B93, B95, B97, Roo, R02, E33, E35, E37, B1, C3, C5, W0, W1, W3, W5

Nunzia: With Polkadoodles digi you have a thousand possibilities to making a card. I designed this one by centering a digi doily from Winnie Celebrations Banners on a pink patterned sheet included in Flower meadow digi stamp. Then I pasted Winnie-daisy-fairy and Happy Easter included in Winnie-celebrations sentiments. Finally I coloured with alcohol markers the scene and cut out the frame from the base.

Wendy - Hi everyone! I just love spring! The flowers are blooming and everyone is ready to throw those windows open to let the fresh air in. This image is Winnie in the Window from the Winnie Special Moments bundle, and she has the right idea. She's looking fabulous and enjoying the warmer temperatures. Thank you for looking!

Jennifer - Hi again crafty friend, today's project is is a really fun one for giving Easter candy a one-of-a-kind twist! Let me tell you how I made 3 custom candy bars, so easily! I started with Polkadoodles digital products "daisy lily ladybug", "little bunny rabbits", "hoppy easter", and "rebel printable paper bundle 2". I measured my candy bars to find out how big to make each wrapper. I made the bunny 5¼x5¾", and the other two 4¾x6¾".
After I got the images I wanted layered onto the different pattern paers, I printed them all out as a single layer, on a color printer. To finish the designs, I just colored each of the little characters with alcohol markers.
Now that each wrapper is finished, I attached each one to some shimmery cardstock, from my stash. All 3 wrappers are now 5⅝" by 6¾". The bunny wrapper is a vertical design, so it only has a shimmer boarder of about ¼", where the two horizontal designs have a boarder of about ½". But the border is simply a design choice, and the entire wrapper can be done in a single layer, if you print your wrapper to be at least 5½"x6".
I used some double sided adhesive tape to attach my wrappers to the candy bars. The easiest way I found, was to put the adhesive directly onto the top side of the chocolate bar, then lay my custom wrapper on top. This way, I could be sure that my images were centered on the front of the bar. Then I added more adhesive to each side and folded them over the back of the bar. And that's it!
I hope you like this quick and easy custom candy wrapper idea! It can be great in easter baskets, stocking stuffers, valentines, and as party favors. You can use any pattern paper, and any images you want (even pre-coloured to make them even faster) to make them match your theme. Hopefully I've inspired some new crafty ideas for you. Enjoy your weekend, and have a creative day! ❤️Jennifer S @pueen_queen
***all dimensions are to fit a standard U.S. sized hersheys milk chocolate candy bar.

Candace - For today's challenge project, the theme is Easter and make an Easter gift or treat. I used the Bundle, Spring into Easter to make this darling treat basket. The bundle comes with black & white images, colored images, pattern papers and sentiments. It's an awesome bundle to have an all in one to make a project!

Martine - Hello everyone, i have got a new card for you and because it is almost Easter it is a eastercard! lol I made a basket and two of the same cards with a little basket between them. So you can put chocolate easter eggs in it and giving it away . I used a embossing fold to make it look like a basket and colored it with Distress oxide. I used Butterfly Chick for it . Isn't she cute? There are more of them in the store, under the name Spring into Easter . That word...easter... is from Doodlebug Design . And as always i colored it with Distress ink.
Have a great Easter time!.... and don't eat too many eggs ;)

KIM STEWART - Happy DIGI DAY! For our challenge this week it was "create a gift for Easter". Since my kids and now grandkids, All love Lindt Gold Bunnies i decided to create little baskets for them to sit in. I did 2 smaller baskets for the mini Gold Bunnies and a large square basket to hold a bigger bunny. Lots of piddly cutting but so worth it in the end; The baskets turned out so cute. I added a few mulberry flowers to the handles and die cut out some tags from the Spring Into Easter digi bundle It has the cutest Toppers in the set. My paper are all from my extra pieces bin. Don't forget to enter the challenge. You might win. We'd love to see what you're creating this week.
CHRISTIN B - I used this Cute Bunny Rabbit with butterfly from the Lucy Monkman range in the Polkadoodles store.
