Trendy Twine -- A Sunny Birthday

Hello everyone! It's my turn to post over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I have a quick card using Lemon Tart Trendy TwineLemon Tart Sequins, and the new Smile stamp set.

I just love this new stamp set -- it has great sentiments and I just love the different fonts used on them.  I need a few birthday cards this week and this set was perfect to use on my sunshine card.  I used a die to cut out the sunshine and the white scalloped base.

I wrapped some of my Lemon Tart Trendy Twine around the card twice and then tied a double bow on there.  The sun is pop dotted on and I stamped the Happy Birthday on the bottom right.  It needed a little more bling so I added several Lemon Tart Sequins and some Clear Wink of Stella to the sunbeams on the sun.

All the yellow makes me happy and I think the person getting the card will like it too.

Be sure to keep vising the blog all month--there are lots of fun projects still to come!

Documenting the Everyday with a Smile Blog Hop

We are so thrilled to be sharing our new stamp sets with you today. Two of them focus on memory keeping/journaling and the third one is a collection of everyday greetings. All of them are super fun and are sure to make you smile.

Documenting the Everyday

We also are releasing three more planner clips. These cuties can be used on your notebooks and journals and are perfect on a layout, too.

Planner Clips

The design team has created some amazing projects for you. Have fun hopping and we hope you will find some crafty inspiration along the way.
Here are my projects using the Documenting the Everyday #2 Stamp Set.  I have not been memory keeping much lately, but I made a few tags I can use for journaling when I get back to it.  

In addition to the fabulous new stamps, I used a few colors of  Trendy Twine on these. There's Totally Red, Pinkberry Sorbet, and Lemon Tart.  All the tags and die cuts are from my Cricut Machine.  And I did use some Clear Wink of Stella on the cupcake and the swirl and some Nuvo Drops on the top and bottom tags. 

This is a card I made with the fun new Smile stamp set. I will definitely be using this set a lot on my cards. 

The flowers are die cuts that I add some clear Wink of Stella to the edges and yellow centers.  And those are some blue Nuvo Drops -- They are not the same size, but I am starting to get the hang of them slowly.  I added a small bow of Blue Berry Trendy Twine too.

Trendy Twine -- Apples and Pens

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's a super simple back to school treat using the Skinny Candy Bags and some yummy Lemon Tart Trendy Twine :)

I have a thing for pens and all kinds of office supply goodies, so when I was looking for something fun to put in my Skinny Candy Bag, I was very excited to find these fun gel pens.  I picked up a few in different colors, but these yellow ones were perfect for my Lemon Tart Trendy Twine.  I was even more excited to see that they are glitter gel pens :)

I used my Cricut to cut out this adorable apple tag.  It's a small two inches.  I was going to stamp something on it, but really like the normal apple look.  I did add some small Nuvo Drops on the green leaf. (I am LOVING the Nuvo Drops--they are so fun!)

The Lemon Tart Trendy Twine is wrapped around the Skinny bag a few times at the time and then I finished it off with a bow.  It's pretty simple, but I wanted to show off the pen in the Skinny Candy Bag to show that you can used other things besides candy in these great bags.

Hope you have a fabulous day!
