Trendy Twine -- Sweet on You

Hello everyone!  Can you believe it's February?  I sure can't!  February is a busy month for me with a few birthdays (one my husband's tomorrow) and Valentine's Day.  I do love Valentine's with all the red and pink.


Today, I am posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine.  I have a super quick treat box and 3x3 card to show you.  We are featuring the Krafty Red Trendy Twine and the Kraft Tags with Metal Rims this month.



The treat box is the 2 inch Kraft Box from Annie's Paper Boutique.  I cut out the card stock panels for each side slightly smaller than 2 inches.  Then I wrapped the Krafty Red Trendy Twine around the sides and tided it at the top, attaching my Kraft Tag that I stamped with my sentiment. The Love Arrow Woodies are also in the store and are so fun!  I attached it with Glossy Accents.


I decided to make a 3x3 card to go along with my treat.  I tied the Krafty Red Twine around my card stock before I glued it down.  Then I tied on my stamped tag to the front.  I used the same size tag that is on my box.  The paper was from a pack I picked up at Michale's this weekend and knew it would be perfect for my projects!  I love the tag on the card :)






I used a ton of fun goodies from Annie's Paper Boutique, so I do hope you check it all out and buy your Valentine goodies!

Sending Warm Wishes

Hello!

Here's another Unity card I made this past weekend. It's an owl stamp and I have more to ink up this weekend :)


This set is called Owl Bundle Up and he is just too cute!  I really need to make a few more and send them to my family in PA who got a ton of snow last weekend  :)  


I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color  and some Glossy Accents on the white of his eyes again. I do like how it looks.  You probably cannot tell, but I also used silver Wink of Stella on the snow flakes and the snowflake on his sweater.

To finish it off, I used some snowflake sequins and some sequins from the Frosty Sequins Mix from Annie's Paper Boutique.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- Water Bottle Love

Hello all!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today, I made a quick decorated small water bottle using Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and the fun Happy Valentine's Day Printable from Annie's Paper Boutique.


 After I cut out the tag, I decided to glue my Raspberry Cupcake twine around the oval because I can't cute straight!  Plus, I do like the way it looks ;)  I then stamped my Happy Valentine's Day sentiment on the tag in pink and added some pink sequins.  These are not the Raspberry Cupcake Sequin Mix you can get from the store.  I need to get those still :)


I was having trouble picking a pink paper to wrap the bottle in so I just went with white.  It was a bit plain though, so I glued my Raspberry Cupcake twine around the bottom of the wrap and then cut out and pop dotted two of the round hearts from the same printable sheet on the sides.  I was able to use a circle punch on these (remember, I can't cut straight and definitely not in a circle!) and only lost a tiny bit of the pink outer circle that was printed.
 


 These printable sheets are so fun and can help you dress up your Valentine's this year!  Don't forget to get your twine and sequins while you are shopping over at Annie's Paper Boutique :)

Thought of You

Hello everyone!  I have made a few cards this weekend and this one if for the My Favorite Things  Sketch Challenge 264.  I  went pretty simple with this one but I do like a clean card sometimes :)



My Favorite Things items used:

  • Blueprint 1, 12& 13 -- dies
  • Essential Sentiments
I added some dimensional squares to the flowers and self-stick gems for the flower centers and around the sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by!!

Love You This Much

Hi everyone!  We got a small amount of snow here in GA so it was a good excuse not to go anywhere and play in my craft room.

I just got a few Unity Stamps in the mail yesterday so it was perfect timing!  I couldn't wait to ink up this cute owl and thought I would make another entry into the Unity Be Inspired Challenge using red and pink.


This stamp set is called Love you this much and has the owl stamps and four sentiments you can choose from.  I have also been inspired by Heather Hoffman from the Unity Design team and so I used a part of a doily on my card.   I have seen her do that on one of the Quick Tip Videos she did for Unity.  These videos are great and give me lots of ideas :)


I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color and some Glossy Accents for the Owls eye area (hopefully you can see that in the above pic). I think I saw that on Angeline Choo's Unity Quick Tip Video :)

Happy Valentine's Day

Hi again!  Can't believe I'm posting two days in a row--it's nice to have a long weekend and some craft time.

This card is for the Unity Be Inspired Challenge.  This month, it's a pink and red theme.  I used the Unity Love is Grand December Sentiment Kit.


To finish off the card, I decided to try to add some glitter around the edges of the top layer.   I saw a quick tip video by  Heather Hoffman showing this.  I think I do like how it looks, but maybe need to work on how thick the glossy accents go on.

Have a great day!
