Christmas Friends

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am in the middle of decorating for  Christmas, but made this quick card last night so I could join the Unity hop that ends tonight (Saturday).

I used the new Ginger Snap and Friends stamp set.  These are so cute!  I also used a snowflake embossing folder and some snowflake sequins.

That's it for today!  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Trendy Twine -- Grateful for You

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today. I made a shaker card using the new Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine.  All four new colors are so fun!  I also used the new Autumn Sequins Mix

This is my third shaker card and I think I am finally getting the hang of them.   I glued down my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine around the outer circle.   The sequins also have some copper chunky glitter in with them. 

The circle was a bit big and I probably could have added more sequins.  But I was trying to be frugal with them :)  I finished it off with a leaf that I stamped and die cut.  And then a double bow of my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine.  

Be sure to visit Annie's Paper Boutique for the new Twine and make sure to check out all the other fun goodies you can pick up too.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- Happy Birthday Lesley!

Hello everyone!  Today the Trendy Twine team is wishing our leader Lesley, a Happy Birthday!  I feel so very grateful to be on such a fabulous design team and it would not be possible with Lesley!

I made and sent her a Hello Kitty birthday card using the fabulous Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  I know she love Hello Kitty and that means pink :)

The cut came from my Hello Kitty Greeting Cricut Cartridge.  I used the Strawberry Cupcake Twine as balloon strings and tied them together with the bow.  I also used a Clear Wink of Stella Pen on the balloons to glitter them up.  I do not know how I ever crafted without these :)  The pearls were in the cheap buy me section on the way out of Michaels.

I hope you join me in wishing Lesley a Happy Birthday and head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fun projects the rest of the design team made.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- Give Thanks

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, we are showcasing the 2x2 Craft Boxes and the newest Trendy Twine Colors.  My color today is Creamy Pumpkin.

I made some super quick and easy treat boxes to show you. These would be great to place at the table for Thanksgiving dinner and since I might do that, I kept them easy!

To decorate the box, I cut a 1 inch strip of Orange Polka Dot Paper to wrap around the box.  Next, I stamped the adorable pumpkin from the Hello Fall Planner Stamp Set on paper, colored it, and cut it out.  This is pop dotted on the front of the box.  I stamped the Give Thanks sentiment from the same stamp set on the top of the box.  And then I wrapped my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine around the sided and finished it off with a box. 

These are super quick and fun for Thanksgiving.  I hope you shop over at Annie's Paper Boutique for all your twine and packaging needs!

Have a fabulous day!!

Whooo Loves You?

Here's another quick card that I made after work for the Unity Blog Hop.  I do love to play along with the Unity challenges :) This isn't the best picture, but the color is pretty good.

I used the adorable You are a Hoot set.  (And yes, this is my second owl card).  I just kept it pretty simple with just the three layers.  I could not decide on a twine to use so kept this one pretty flat.

Have a great night!


It's Owl-Right

Hello everyone!  I have a quick card to share with you today that I am entering in the Unity Be Inspired Challenge this month. 

This set is called Going to be Owl-Right and I love him!  I work at a university where the mascot is an owl, so I tend to collect them :)  I colored him in with my Zig Clean Color Markers.  It's fun to color and I really need to try to do it every day.

I added some Totally White Trendy Twine and some self-stick pearls from Michaels.  They weren't sticking very well though so I added some glue to keep them down.

Have a fabulous day!
