Acorn Hello

Hi everyone!  It's been a super busy August at my house.  My kids went back to school on the 4th and all their activities started pretty much right away.  And I work at a University and classes there started back this past Monday.  I think I worked about 48 hours over this past week and I am very glad it's over.

I am so glad I made time to make a card for the SVG Cutting Files monthly challenge though.  They have a Groot and Rocket (from Guardians of the Galaxy) file for entering and I needed them--LOL!  The challenge is to make anything with fall colors and be sure to use their files as the main focus.

Here's my Acorn Hello card--I am very happy with how it turned out!

Supplies used:

  • SVG Cutting Files Nutty Acorn
  • SVG Cutting Files Circle Trio Card Set--Large Scallop Card and layer
  • Totally Kraft Trendy Twine
  • DCWV Harvest Gathering Stack
  • My Creative Time Floral Sentiments stamp
  • Doodlebug Sequins
  • Frosted Lace Stickles
  • Pop Dots
I used a tiny bit of stickles for the cheeks and then pop dotted the acorn on the card.  Now that I have the Cricut Explore, I love cutting SVG's!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Wishing You a Great Year with Trendy Twine!

Hello everyone! It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I made some cute little treat boxes for back to school.  My kids went back last Monday--I think that's way too early!  I'm also using the fabulous Cranberry Trendy Twine--a great color for those school projects.

I just LOVE all the cute mini boxes in the store.  They are just so fun!  You can find these 2x2x2 Kraft Boxes in a pack of 10 over at Annie's Paper Boutique. These are holding 3 mini Snickers each.  I might be able to fit a 4th in there, but then there would be less for me to eat :)

I wrapped my Cranberry Trendy Twine around the box a few times and tied a bow.  Then I glued some fun Doodlebug Sequins in all the corners.  To finish it off, I pop dotted a die cut apple stamped with the sentiment to the top.  These would be great for kids or teachers.

Be sure to visit the Trendy Blog for more great back to school projects and a close up of my apple.  And you can join the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine Facebook page for more fun.

Have a fabulous day!
