Happy Owl-o-Ween!

Hi everyone! I have another Halloween card for you today.  I am just having the best time playing with the new Print then Cut files from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  They have several Halloween Owls that are just so cute!


This one was the first one I bought, then I went and bought about five more.  I made a witch owl that was on the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine blog yesterday.  I will be showing the others in the next few days since I already print, cut, and assembled them.  They just need to go on a card or treat package :)


Print then Cut is so easy on my Cricut Explore machine.  I have not had this much fun crafting in a long time.

Supplies used:

  • Totally Black Trendy Twine
  • Print Then Cut Mummy Owl from KaDoodle Bug Designs--cut at 3 inches tall
  • My Creative Time Stitched Decorative Banner Die
  • My Pink Stamper Happiest Moments Stamp
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Halloween Mat Pad
  • Frosted Lace Stickles
  • Doodlebug Designs Sequins
  • Pop Dots (LOTS)
Have a fabulous day!

A Trendy Halloween

Hi everyone! It's my turn over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have a Halloween card for you using the fabulous Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine.  I love to make Halloween cards, but never seem to give them out.  I need to do that this year though because I have made several lately :)

Here's just a sneak peek for you here though.  You can see the whole card over at the blog.


I do hope you join in the challenge going on right now.  Click HERE and see all the details.  You can also see lots of fun projects on the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine Facebook page so I hope you join the group over there.  And last, but not least, stop by the store, Annie's Paper Boutique, for all your twine and packaging needs!

Trendy Twine Boo-tiful Treats Challenge

Hi everyone!  Today, we start back with the Trendy Twine Challenge and it's a fun month to get back in the groove :)  The challenge is Boo-tiful Treats--Halloween treat packaging with a tag and Trendy Twine.  And there are lots of fun Halloween Trendy Twine Twists to choose from.


The twine I used is Spooktacular Taffy, one of my favorite Halloween twists.  I used a 1 x 8 Clear Candy Tube and a 1 7/8 x 7 Medium Candy Bag since I only had one left of each (I love all the packaging that's in the store!).  


The tags that I used are also from the store.  It's a set of 12 Halloween Tags that are printed for you and have a matching circle reinforcement already on them.  They are so fun!! I just inked the edges of the tag in a matching ink, glued on some spider sequins, and added my twine.  Fast, cute and easy treats!!


I really hope you join in the challenge this month!  Stop by Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the challenge details and the rest of the design team's spooky treats, then be sure to go to Annie's Paper Boutique for all the goodies you'll need for Halloween :)


Have a fabulous day!

Girly Birthday Card

Hi everyone!  Today I have a birthday card that I made for my son's girlfriend.  I really hope she likes it!


I sat staring at it for the longest time, moving the flowers around, trying to find the best way to arrange everything.   The flowers and stamp are both from My Creative Time, the wavy card base is from SVG Cutting Files, and the pink dots are homemade enamel dots (from Perler Beads).  I did ink the edges of the white layer and pop dot the the layers of the flowers.

Have a fabulous day!

Hello My Pretty Friend

Hi everyone!  I made a cute Halloween card this weekend.  Really, I should have gotten more done, but spent all day Saturday running errands.  I really need a good crafting weekend soon :)

I got this cute Happy Pumpkin from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I was about to put it in my cart when I decided to click on the Friday Freebie section and it was there!  I also picked up a cute light bulb that I hope to make a card with this week.


The pumpkin has some teeth too, which I did cut out, but I decided I liked her better without them.  My Cricut Explore machine cut out her eyelashes perfectly! I also added some faux stitching to the hat before gluing it all together.


My Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine was a perfect addition for this card.  You should check out all the fun Halloween Twines over at Annie's Paper Boutique and get what you need for the holiday.

I finished off the card with some Doodlebug sequins in orange and purple and some Frosted Lace Stickles.

Have a fabulous day!
