The Very Grumpy Easter Egg Hunt - Bird Diecut Challenge

Happy Friday!

Our challenge this week for Stuck On U Sketches was to use a bird diecut. A subject for this challenge didn't really jump out at me. So, I started cruising my usual SVG web stores and I came across these grumpy looking chicks from Lettering Delights. The minute I saw them, I burst out loud because I knew exactly what I was going to do with them!

 Papers: Bazzill Basics, Lilybee Designs, Crate Paper; SVG's: Lettering Delights (For Peep's Sake), Lori Whitlock (Easter Candy Set); Alpha Stickers: American Craft Thickers, Echo Park, Crate Paper, Jillibean Soup; Glitter: Stickles by Ranger, Martha Stewart, Making Memories; Misc: American Crafts roller date stamp, Fiskars punch, Hero Arts enamel dots, unknown photo corners
I cut the chicks and jellybeans from coloured cardstock and then applied matching glitter to make them look more "Easterish". I love how cutesy the page looks in contrast to the dark photos of grumpy teenagers. ;)

Please be sure to check out all the lovely work the ladies have done at SOUS and why not submit a card or layout with a diecut bird.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Sylvia, you never disappoint. This is a great layout. What a precious memory too.

  2. What does the journalling say? I'm curious why it was "grumpy"!

    1. If you click on the photo, a larger image will open and you can read the journaling there. In essence, it's an Easter egg hunt with teenagers. "nuff said. LOL!

  3. So adorable! Love your creative mind!
