Paper Easter Baskets

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Ours was really nice, spending the morning with our girls' and their families, then having the rest of the day to ourselves to just relax. It was pretty perfect, except for missing our son, which I don't think I'll ever get used to. I was working like crazy getting Easter crafts done, not that I did a lot, just waited until the last minute. When will I learn?
If you remember, I got a Cameo a few months ago. I'm still getting familiar with it, learning how to use Studio and having fun finding files to cut. One of my favorite places for files is SVGcuts.com and that's where this basket came from. The set is called Hippity Hoppity.
I made these for my daughters and their husbands. I used their favorite colors and of course filled them with their favorite goodies. They look complicated, but actually went together quite easily. The nice thing about SVGCuts is that they have tutorial videos for all their file sets. Makes it nice if you do have a question.
The printed purple paper, flowers and pearls are all from Recollections. The white is Colorboc textured paper and the solid paper (pink and purple) is from Coordinations.  For the polka dot basket, I used the Imagine and printed from the Bubblegum Stripe cartridge. The buttons on the basket are from Silhouette and I used the print and cut feature with the Cameo for them. The X's in the centers are made with Liquid Applique. The basket handles are attached with large brads.
Also part of the set was a file for this cute carrot. I made one of these for each of the grand kids and filled them with jelly beans.
Here's a pic of these grand kids I'm always talking about; Carter, Felix and Gianna. It was quite impossible to get a picture of the three of them all smiling and all looking in the same direction at the same time!
Thanks for stopping by!

Really cute easter baskets! I'm waiting for a deal on a Cameo before I take the plunge. I love seeing projects with the Cameo and reading about others experiences with it. I think I would really use the print and cut feature the most. TFS!
