Welcome to my NEW BLOG!
For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Supplies: plastic rabbit treat holder, Gallery Glass Liquid Leading in silver (http://www.plaidonline.com/), glass stain (http://www.deltacreative.com/) in assorted colors, small paintbrush
Next came the gingham bunny. These soft pastel colors of gingham just say SPRING to me so I thought it would be fun to incorporate them into an Easter decoration. Random size pieces of pale green, blue, pink and yellow gingham were torn and then decopauged into the insides of the bunny using Plaid Mod Podge. A bit of pink and blue gingham ribbon around his neck and he was complete. When placed in a window, the sun still shines a bit through this bunny giving it a soft glow. And yes, it still opens so it can be filled with treats and presented as a gift.
Supplies: plastic rabbit treat holder, gingham cotton fabric in pink, pale blue, pale green and yellow. Pink and blue ¼” gingham ribbon. Plaid Mod Podge, paintbrush.
Supplies: plastic rabbit treat holder, artificial flowers in spring shades, Elmer’s Craft Bond Tacky Glue.

http://www.G45papers.com/) The colors are beautiful and soft, the patterns include adorable electic springtime images like fairies, birds, whimiscal bunnies and other springtime creatures. This collection includes a good assortment of patterns that coordinate well together. I turned to RIT Liquid Dye (http://www.ritdye.com/) to create custom colored cardstocks for this card, as well as to dye the buttons on the front, and to dye the crochet trim on the front to match the skirt on the focal image bunny exactly. To find out how I used RIT with these fun papers to make this card visit the RIT Dye website:
