Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  The Trendy Twine design team made some wonderful Easter projects to share with you today.

I made a bunny in a basket card.  It went together pretty quickly. I used Strawberry Cupcake and some Totally Limeade Trendy Twine on my card.

The card came from the Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and I used the Curly Label die from My Creative Time.

Please stop by Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fabulous Easter projects the design team made.

Have a Happy Easter!!

How's the Weather? Planner Stamps

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I got some fun goodies in the mail last week and just had to play with them.  The new How's the Weather? Planner stamps are just too cute!  I started using them right away in my planner, which is also new to me this year.  My pages are not as nice as some I see, but I'm just starting and need to play some more :)

Here are my pages for this week.  I don't have much going on a few days, which I plan to using for crafting if I can :) (or watching Grey's Anatomy!)

Monday was really a Monday at my house.  We started the day off running late and I finished the day off by leaving my phone at work.  Since I had to go back for it, it was pizza for dinner since that did not require much work on my part.  So I just had to use the adorable pizza stamp from the Foodies Planner Stamp Set!

I did go ahead and put the weather through Friday which is supposed to be mostly cloudy with a little sun.  So that's why there is one sun and two clouds :)  These stamps make me smile!

Here is a list of everything from Annie's Paper Boutique that I used:

The weather stamps, pen and washi tape were in my package so that's why I featured them.  I just love that adorable bear pen--it's just too fun!

Make sure to head over to the store and check out the Planner Stamps page--they all are on sale right now :)  

Have a great day!

Sunshine in my soul

Hello!  I decided to join in the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this weekend and figured I better go ahead and post today so I don't forget to link up :)  I don't usually like the cards I make from sketches, but I really love this one.

I used a stamp from the My Favorite Things Cheerful Blessing set.  The sun is from a Cricut cartridge, cut at 3 inches and pop dotted on the card.  I also used some Glam Pink Stickles on the cheeks, some white ribbon, and self adhesive pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Trendy Twine Bunny Bags

Hello everyone!  I'm up on the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine Blog today.  This month, we are showcasing Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine along with the Small Candy Sacks

I went a little crazy in the Easter candy isle--there was so much that I liked in that isle and it somehow ended up in my cart :)  The mini malted eggs are one of my favorites so I had to used them in one of the bags. 

I used a cut from the Cricut New Arrival cartridge for my tag.  The green paper is just a small piece I added to bring in some green to go along with the twine.  I stamped the sentiment in some green ink above the bunny cut out.

The cut was actually just a flat card that I scored and folded over the back.  Then I punched small holes for my Watermelon Trendy Twine to go through to hold the bag closed with a bow in the front.  To finish off the tag, I added two small self stick pearls.

Here is a shot of the side of the bag.  I love the flat bottom which helps hold a lot of candy in there.

We have lots of fun projects for this month using the Watermelon Trendy Twine and the Small Candy Sacks--both on special this month at Annie's Paper Boutique.

I hope you visit the Twine It Up! blog today and all month long!!

A Trendy Twine Turtle Box

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.   We are showcasing the fabulous Limeade Trendy Twine and the fun Kraft Gable Boxes this month.  Make sure to head over there to see all the fun projects!

For my box, I also added the St. Patrick's Day Punch and Go Printable that you can get in the store too.

The printable is cut out with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch and I cut the scalloped circle out with my Cricut at 2 inches to attach to the printable.  I threaded the Limeade Trendy Twine through the scallops and tied a bow.  Then I wrapped some around the handle of the Kraft Gable Box and then tied the tag to the twine on the box. 

I used some fun polka dot paper for the background of my St. Patrick's Day Turtle.  The turtle is cut from the Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge.  The animals on this cart are so fun to play with!

There is plenty of time to get some of these great goodies in time for St. Patrick's Day.Head over to Annie's Paper Boutique to get your shopping done :) 
Have a fabulous day!Helen
