Jubilee Home Decor and Center Step Easel Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Easter will be here before we know it!  So I thought I'd share a cute idea for some Easter/Springtime home decor with you today.  And if you're still working on your springtime card stash, I have a cute Easter Bunny card and a brand new easel card video tutorial to help get your creative juices flowing. To tell you the truth, I broke open my Jubilee 12x12 Collection Kit and just could not stop creating.  So this post is loaded to the gills with ideas and inspiration that I hope you will enjoy.

First up is this super adorable Easter Shadow Box made with Eileen Hull's Trinket Box Die.  Isn't it darling?


This is one of those projects that looks like it took forever to make, but thanks to the Trinket Box Die, it actually comes together quickly.  You just use the die to cut your chipboard base, and pretty papers from the Jubilee Collection Kit.  Just glue the papers to the die cuts and you are nearly done. I also diluted some Walnut Ink with water, then spattered it over the entire piece to give it even more of an aged, vintage feel.


The Trinket Box interior is lined with patterns and images from the collection kit.  Then I altered a Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Trophy with gesso, embossing powder and Distress Paint.  I used my Tonic Scissors to cut the trophy base off so that it would not cover up the sweet Easter image.  Then I filled the base with Spanish Moss and paper flowers.  A tiny brass bunny charm is glued onto the front of the trophy. 


I punched holes for the ribbon closure, then added a vintage button to the top.  A pair of sweet sticker tags is suspended from the bow cluster.  An empty thread spool has been altered with patterned paper and then glued to the base of the trinket box to serve as a pedestal.

Here Comes the Easter Bunny Card with Hidden Tag Pocket


I was having too much fun playing with my Jubilee Collection kit, so I just kept right on creating!  Next up was this 5" x 7" top fold card with a hidden tag pocket.


After inking, distressing, and stitching around this image from Jubilee Two, I rolled the upper left hand corner around a pencil to form a scroll.  Then I adhered a complementary panel of paper to the base of my card.  Next, I glued the prepared panel from Jubilee Two, leaving part of the side and top open so that a tag could be inserted.


The tag is decorated with papers and fussy cut images from Jubilee Two and Three.  I also added images from the 6x6 Bundle and a sticker . 

Jubilee Center Step Easel Cards and Tutorial


Last but not least, I created these super sweet center step easel cards.  Each is made from a 7" x 5" top fold kraft card base.  They look complicated but just two simple cuts and one simple fold are required to make this clever decorative card.


The first card is themed for Easter with bright flowers, sheer ribbons and a sweet sentiment panel.


This second card uses the exact same "recipe" but is not specific to Easter.  I made this design to show off the versatility of this lovely collection.  You could use it for any occasion! This is the card we will build from the base up in the video tutorial below.
