Yesterday (in my post about some Painted Decorative Eggs) I mentioned that I’d made a layout inspired by all the pretty eggs I’ve seen on Pinterest, and here it is. It was a fun way to do a mixed-media page with lots of different textures!
Easter Egg Hunt Layout:
I cut out lots of the details on my Cricut Explore – the eggs are cut from the woodgrain paper so that I could paint / decorate inside the holes, and I cut the bunting, journal card, bunny tag, and title with it too.

Here’s a layout process video to show you how I put the page together, including using the Cricut Design Space. The video also shows how I made a few mistakes and managed to cover them up! I changed my mind a lot too! The video can be viewed below, or on YouTube HERE.
The Cricut cuts I used were: #M54A6F (eggs), #M37922 (bunting), #M30703 (bunny tag), #MFCC29 (tag), #M369889 (line). And the font was Songbird.
Here are some detail photos of the page in case you want to look a bit longer, or aren’t able to watch the video…
The kids had a great time. We’re going to someone else’s garden for an Easter egg hunt this year and they are very eggs-cited about it!
I’m entering this layout into the ‘Cut It Up’ Spring – Anything But A Card Challenge.
I’m already thinking about what other shapes I can cut from a 12×12 background to then fill with a riot of mixed-media. Maybe some chevrons, hearts, or stars? What would you cut out? What techniques would you use to fill the holes?
Have a crafty day!
