Trendy Twine -- Birthday's Rock!

Hello everyone! It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.

I made a birthday card using Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine.  The stamps and dies are from My Favorite Things.  


Supplies used:

I really like the Stars & Stripes Twine lining the border and down the middle.  I will definitely do that again :)


Be sure to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique and grab some fun twine and goodies!

Memory Keeping with Trendy Twine

Hello everyone and Happy 4th of July!   I can't believe it's July already--the summer is just flying by. The Trendy Twine design team has decided to do a different kind of post for today.  We all made projects tied to memory keeping.
  

I am so far behind on my scrap booking. My daughter is 17 and loves to look at the albums that I have completed.  So I really need to start making pages, or just getting my pictures into albums. Today I made a scrap page with pictures from July 2008!


I used some fabulous Nautical Trendy Twine on my page and around my journal circle.  This twine was perfect for my yellow page with my blue picture mats.   The background was cut from my Cricut machine.  I liked the design for our sunny day outing!  I added some white cloud stickers and dark blue self stick gems.  Oh and I used two fun Trendy Page Dots at the top too :)


Please be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fun ways the Trendy Gals are memory keeping!

Trendy Twine -- Star Spangled Treats

Hi there!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  For my project today, made some treats for the 4th of July. I used Totally White Trendy Twine and the Medium Pillow Boxes along with some fun Hershey Kisses.


I have a thing for Hershey Kisses and grabbed a bag at the store a few weeks ago.  They were in the seasonal isle but I didn't pay attention to the bag.  When I opened it, there were blue with stars and red and white striped candies -- so fun!  I thought they would be perfect to put in the Medium Pillow Box in a 'flag' pattern.


I made a tag from a rectangle die and stamped my sentiment with white ink.  Then I added a few small star sequins to it.  I wrapped my Totally White Trendy Twine around the pillow box and tied my bow.  The tag is just tucked under the twine and I did use a small glue dot to hold it in place.



Have a great day!

MFT Camp Create -- Wonderful Watercolor

Hello again!  Here's my last post for MFT Camp Create and it's for Wonderful Watercolor.

(this is not the best picture, but no daylight!)

I definitely went outside my comfort zone on this one and I really do like it!  I used LJD Whimsical Wishes stamp set. For the watercolor, I used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  To finish it off, I added some self stick gems.

Have a great day!

MFT Camp Create -- Delightful Die Cutting

Hi!  I am squeaking two quick blog posts in to make the deadline for MFT Camp Create.  This one is Delightful Die Cutting.


I used the adorable Strike up the Band stamps and die sets and the Stitched Cover Up Companion Horizontal.

I love to use the dies that match all the time--especially now that they open in the middle so I can line it up :)
