You're Sweet!

Hello everyone!!   I hope you enjoyed the Pretty in Pink Blog Hop this weekend.  If you missed out, you have until 10pm CST today (Monday 1/28) to follow all the rules for entry to win some awesome blog candy by clicking HERE.

Today, I have a quick and easy gable box I decorated for Valentine's Day with the fabulous Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine--love this combo!

I just cut the cardstock to fit the sides.  The hearts are from My Creative Time's Stitched Scallop Heart Die and stamps from Close to My Heart.  The biggest heart is perfect to thread the Trendy Twine through :)  And I added a bit of self stick gems for some sparkle.

Pretty In Pink Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Pretty In Pink blog hop celebrating the release of two new Trendy Twine Colors Pink Licorice and Pink Midnight!!!  If you have just come from Dawn's Designs that Delight then you are on the right track.  If you happened to stop by my blog be sure to visit Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine so you don't miss out on the fun :)

I just love pink and was so excited to find that Leslie made these awesome new combinations.  For this weekend only, you can get both spools for $16.50. You can get them in a mini set too.

My project is showcasing the Pink Midnight.  I think this would be a great small treat holder or it could even fit a gift card.

Here are the details:
  • Pink Midnight Trendy Twine
  • Purse box cut at 5 inches from Cricut Close to My Heart Artiste Cartridge
  • My Creative Time Stitched Scallop Heart Die
  • Self-Adhesive Gem
  • Scotch Quick Dry Glue
  • White Signo Pen
  • Pop dots
This is a quick little treat holder. The flap has a pop dot under it to hold it down since it wasn't laying flat.  I am just loving adding my Trendy Twine to my projects for more than just bows :)   

Well, since you made it to the end of my post, I get to tell you we have blog candy!! To be entered to win one of three gift certificates, comment on each post in the blog hop, follow the Trendy Twine blog and like the Trendy Twine Facebook page.  You must do all three to be eligible to win and your deadline to enter is 10pm CST, Monday, January 28th.

Your next stop is Jamie at JamieK711 Designs.  Have fun!!

What's Up?!

Hello everyone!  I really am trying to get back to creating again.  We finally have some sunshine and I am trying to organize my crafty space.  That includes trying to talk my husband into letting me hang some things on the wall :)  I have taken over the dinning room the last year and a half but he's not too keen on me hanging some things.   I did have to clear everything out for Thanksgiving, but that was it.  So I'm trying to talk him into it just being my room.  We can have a plan B for Thanksgiving this year :)

Here's a card I made and not for a DT post!  Trendy Twine is having a blog hop on Saturday so I do have to still make something for that.  I hope you will hop with us!


  • Lemon Tart and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine
  • Giraffe cut at 4 inches and kite cut at 3 inches from Create A Critter
  • Animal Print Cuttlebug Folder
  • Frosted Lace, Black Diamond, and Yellow Stickles
I did take the picture pretty late in the day and tried to adjust the color.  It still looks better in person :)

Have a great day!!
