Easter Basket


Hi bloggers!  Today's video is really a "how to assemble" video that is perfect for anyone that has purchased the Easter Basket or may be interested in it for a later purchase.  It is really very easy to assemble and the video walks you through it.  Unfortunately, there are no real "extra" pictures of the basket, just the one above with the video, but it shows it in all it's 3D glory!  This die set, by the way, makes a fab flat card and there are a few more videos coming up that show it off that way.  

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card Giveaway is:

Heather R Oxfordshire!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your card!  All for now, Sue x

A beautiful card, I love it. It's so cute.You must have been delighted with all your congratulations nyesterday as we were delighted to give them. You have always been the best in our eyes now the world knows it.
Congratulations , Heather, enjoy your lovely card.
Tracey, hope you got home safely, I'm glad you had such a wonderful trip, hope the cold has now gone.
June, did the tic tacs work. Glad you enjoyed making the card up.
Saba, of course you don't need my permission, feel free.
Elaine, you are right, Helen is a very special lady. Hope Andrew is well. You too have been such a rock for him, it all helps.
Has anyone heard how Norah is, it has been a while, missing her.
Laine, you certainly are our glamour queen, bet you felt a million dollars afterwards.
Carmen, how is the Kid doing, well I hope. On Create and Craft last night, a lady from Toronto sent a photo, clear blue skies, white snow and dark green fir trees that she took on her early morning ski run, looked stunning.
Hugs all round, especially our poorly and missing friends, have a good weekend.N

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. I'm so thrilled to see this is the video of the day as I've just been lucky enough to receive it as a 'thank you' gift from my keeper, I won't go into details but you really couldn't have found a better day to showcase this die, all I need is the time and to stay awake long enough to watch and digest as I'm still in my role as nurse and I'm wilting quicker than an iceberg lettuce ! Many congrats to Heather, what a wonderful surprise for you to end the week - enjoy ☺
Hope you've found the time to celebrate your much deserved award Sue, if not, hope it's on the agenda soon !! I'm still thrilled to bits for you. All we need to do now is work extra hard to get more people back into the blog, and to introduce new people to your blog to get you back to your top position in the ratings where you belong.
Ok, my shift is about to start again so I'll send my love wrapped up in my usual daily hug xxx

Hi Sue,

Beautiful basket. I love it. Great video. Easter is around the corner and I plan to make some cards for my family back home.Thank you for the inspiration.

Congratulations to Heather!

I am early with this post (2am here) but very late with yesterday comment.

Pam- the Kid is doing fine. He plans to visit us this week. He misses us and we miss him very much. I have no idea what part of Toronto she took the picture since all I see is grey sky, white snow, no green at all even I have a park cross the street. It was very windy and cold (-17) yesterday. We could see the sun for a little while around 5pm.Today is not going to be better.

Have a great weekend!
Still a newbie to Craft / Not longer the newest and the only across the pond Wilsonette

Great video, Sue, thank you. Your basket is so sweet, although not on my list I do like to see how you use all the dies, so cleverly designed.
What a lot of lovely words for you yesterday, all so heartfelt.
Theresa G - pleased your pooch is fairly happy, bit of a wait for the results so fingers crossed.
Echoing Pam again!
Hugs to all.

Lovely basket. I keep looking at the die and wondering... I think it will have to go on my shopping list, which is getting longer and longer. Sue, I hope you're having a big celebration still.
Congratulations to Heather. Enjoy.
Hope everyone is keeping safe and warm. Crafty hugs to all.

Barbara Gosden said...

Hi Sue
A lovely basket.
Yesterday I watched your video of the shaving foam technique with pixie powders which was excellent. I'll be buying shaving foam on my next visit to the supermarket so I can have a go (my husband uses gel, so I can't steal some of his!)
Congrats to Heather on winning that gorgeous card.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and fellow Best Blogettes,
That basket really is darling!
Somebody could set up an Etsy shop just making them.
Has anybody ever had a die wear out?
I'm thrilled to find a Wilsonette in my own tiny state! Humberta Goncalves-Babbitt, I'm a Providence Journal reporter and I wrote the story on Saturday's front page about the Rumford couple who climbed all 46 of the Adirondacks High Peaks in winter! My phone number and email address are at the bottom of each of my stories, so email me your phone number and we can talk. I'm up at 1 a.m. as well, just getting home from work. We could be a gang of two!
You said it best, deniseann, when you credited Sue for taking us from hamemade cards to "professionally made at home" cards. I also agree with whoever said (was that you, too?) that Sue also brought papercrafting to a higher level. Nobody else designs dies with such graceful and perfectly proportioned intricacies.
Saba, what in the world do you do with so much rope? Or were you making a word play? Does ropey mean something in the U.K.? I'm also surprised to hear several Wilsonettes use chuffed to indicate a positive feeling. I would have guessed it meant something like miffed.
May everyone's Saturday be sunny. And congratulations Heather!
Love,
Donita

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, beautiful creation with the basket die set, yes I do have it but not used it yet. I love seeing all your video's they are so useful.

Pam, not been to the shops yet but will get the tic-tacs, once I have them I can send it off to her in the post, I hope to see her on skype on her birthday open it.

Elaine, Andrew and Helen, hope all went well yesterday, special hugs.

Theresa enjoy your celebration trip, xx

Special hugs to all who need them.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a gorgeous basket, I love the wicker look to it too. I can see it will have many uses. Thank you for sharing such a useful video with us.
Love Diane G xxx

Pam as always you have said everything beautifully xxx
Carmen I've heard how cold it can get in Canada and don't envy you at all. My daughter is looking at internships for her industry year at Univeesity and Canada is on her list! I have warned her how cold it is in Canada , she thinks Scotland is cold!! I hope you get some blue skies and bits of green soon xxx
Donita I hope you manage a meet up with a fellow wilsonet. The English language is lovely, chuffed means happy/proud, you are usually chuffed to bits which probably means you are so happy your face almost splits in two with the grin! Xxx
Congratulations to Heather enjoy your card. Xxx

Good morning Sue,
Loving the idea of this Oh! So! Sweet Basket, love it. Will a lovely little gift for lots of occasions.
Pam, I echo your wonderful summary, thank you.
Saba!! better not bring that "rope" with you in April Myra might have naughty thoughts about what to do with it!!!
Saba, will give you the technical reasons for the "rope" but she goes sailing, the rope is for their boat.
She can tell you some tales of her and her hubby on the high seas. We are quite an adventurous "nine" you know!!
Off to watch the Video and learn.
Congratulations Heather, lucky lady.
Have a wonderful day everyone.

Lorraine Freeman said...

What a cute basket but not my style, sorry.
Congratulations on the best blog award, I did vote for you :)
For our Canadian friend ropey means not feeling well :)
That's what I am and have been for quite a while. It's very wearing and the lack of crafting miserable. Most of the time I can't even colour as my arms ache.
Thankfully I managed to make a card for my nephew in the week. Hopefully I will be able to make my brother's this week.
Not sure what is going on with me, possibly viruses setting off fibro flares.
This too will pass :)
It was lovely to pop in and look at some of Sue's makes.
Sending love n hugs to you all xxx

Hi Sue, I love this dear little basket but do not currently have it in my stash. Will see if I can rectify that before Easter but I agree with you and others that it would be suitable for weddings and other occasions also. Very clear video as always.

Heather - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy your lovely card.
Laine - I hope you haven't worn yourself out with yesterday's exertions but it would seem that PP will do anything (including inviting herself out to dinner) to avoid your 'phone calls lol
'P' - I hope Harry is still 'eating hugely and has lots of purrs'.

Tressa said...

A sweet basket that would be ideal for some wedding favours or even a children's party. I like the idea of using craft card to make it look like wicker. It is not a die that I would personally find useful but I can appreciate the circumstances where it might be ideal.

Thank you, Sue! I have the die set, and was going to use it in my Golden Oldies club, having the members make their own basket for Easter. However, since their average age is 82, I have had a rethink....I shall make the baskets up for them to decorate! It will be much kinder on arthritic fingers. :) I am sure they will all be happier with the results, too. Your video was so clear and easy to follow. Thank you, again. Jo xx

Saba said...

Good evening Sue,
I wasn't sure about this die but having seen today's video you have won me over. I need it it! I was mesmerised watching you assemble it. It's just so well thought out, right down to the little fastener on the handles. It must have taken you an age to design this die and I'm looking forward to seeing your other samples.

A little explanation about my penchant for ropes before others no names mentioned (Laine) let's their imagination run riot. It's a white and black rope, not a hint of grey anywhere. I will not be taking it to our meet up although it could be useful to keep some of our gang in line. I'm sure Yvonne will already have sussed it out as her dad is also a sailor, It's a fore line for mooring up our boat and I shall be stroking it lots before we eventually get to use it! Bit like ribbon really only thicker!!!
Love and hugs for all

I'm rather late tonight - sorry about that!

I also didn't really look at the Die set and there are so many Dies in the set! As has been said by others - very useful for many occasions! It's a super little basket and so easily constructed! I love how you fixed the bows! Thank you.
Littlelamb - look forward to seeing what you make with the basket Die!
Heather - many Congratulations! A really lovely card is coming your way!
Wishing all my friends and sparring partners a very good night!

Hi Sue

Love this little basket Just bought the die, so your video came just at the right time.

This basket is so versatile, it can be used for eggs, little baskets of Jelly Beans like you used Sue. I think it could be used as a gift box for any little gift Even wedding favours, full of sugared almonds.

I thought too Sue, they could be used for a little girl's tea party, full of sweets nuts etc. One could line the inner with foil or cling film so the foods in it, would not stain and the basket could be kept for another day.

Love Dorothy
