Great card. I like the twine glued around the oval and the sparkle. My son's birthday is on the the 4th of July--this card design would be perfect.

Trendy Twine -- Hello Sweetie!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I am loving the twine this month -- Bubblegum Taffy!  It's so pretty :)  


I started with a small white bag.  Since I wanted to stamp and color a bit at the bottom, I slid a piece of white cardstock in the back before doing that.  The stamps are from the Foodies stamp set.  I picked out the candy bar stamp since I put some of the small Hershey's Bars in the bag. 


Next I folded over the top to back and punched two holes and added some Pink Polka Dot Trendy Page Dots to the bag. Then I threaded my Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine through a few times and tied a bow.  To finish it off, I stamped the Hello sweetie from the You & Me Planner set and another candy stamp to a Pink Tag It.  I added another Pink Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot, some blue sequins from the Frosty Sequin Mix, and a bit more Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.  I just taped it to the front.

This makes a cute and quick gift for someone sweet!

Be sure to head over to the blog to see all the sweet projects all month long!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy 4th of July!

Hello and Happy 4th of July!! A few of the Trendy Gals made some patriotic projects for today.  

My card uses a print then cut from my Cricut.  I thought this cut was so cute!  Originally, I was going to use this on a clear treat box.  But I didn't have any candy lying around for that.  So I made a card instead. 


I used the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around my fun star paper.  Then I die cut the rectangle and pop dotted my die cut onto that.  Last, but not least I added some fun silver, red, and blue star sequins.  I do love that there are different sized stars in the mix.

Be sure to visit the blog for the other project!


Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy 4th

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up with Trendy Twine today.  I'm sharing a 4th of July card with you.  I'm loving the Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine.  I also used the Happy stamp from the Feeling Happy Planner Stamp set.


For my card, I cut out the oval with a manual die and the 4th of July with the star from my Cricut.  I glued my Berries Jubilee around the oval.  Next I stamped the Happy stamp from the Feeling Happy stamp set before pop dotting the 4th of July down.  I really like the way it turned out. 


I added the bow of twine and thought I needed some sparkle.  So I grabbed a blue Nuvo Glitter Marker. Wow, that made it sparkle -- LOL!  I had not used them before so I didn't know how glittery it would get :)

Trendy Twine -- Happy Father's Day!

Hello everyone and Happy Father's Day!  The Trendy Gals made some projects for dad today.


I made a quick card from my Cricut.  All cuts, including the card base are cut out from there.  I added the Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine to the end of my tag. It's not just for fall :)


I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the stars.  Not sure you can see that too well though.  And I used dimensional tape to put the tag on.  It was pretty simple and quick to put together.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Father's Day!


Don't forget, I'm giving away a Berries Jubilee Mini this month.  Commenting on this post counts as an entry :)

Trendy Twine -- USA

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today. I have a fun treat box for 4th of July to show you.

I started with the Biggie Kraft Box 3x3 that you can find in the store. I just love all the packaging products you can find there at great prices.  You can fill this with your favorite candies.  Mine are usually of the chocolate variety :) 


I used some patriotic paper around the box and they wrapped my Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine around the other way and made a bow.  Next, I pop-dotted my USA die cuts onto two of the sides.  The die cuts are layered and came from Cricut Design Space. 


The top seemed a bit plain so I added some white enamel dots that may be a bit off white.  But I think it worked.


These are pretty easy to make and everyone would love a treat on the 4th of July!



Giveaway Time!!
I am giving away a Berries Jubilee Mini this month!  Leave a comment on this post and on my posts on the 18 and the 28th.  I'll draw a winner from those three days.

Trendy Twine -- Memorial Day

Hello everyone!  I hope you are enjoying an extra day off. Whatever your plans are today, take time to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.

A few of the Trendy Gals made projects for today.  Head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other projects.  


I made this card using stars drawn and cut from my Cricut.  I die cut an oval die to put the stars on and stamp my sentiment.  I glued down my Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine around the oval and added a bow.  I used pop dots on the stars for some more dimension.


I hope you have a lovely day!

Have a Super Birthday!

Hello everyone!

Today is my daughter's 18th birthday!  She is my youngest and graduating high school in two weeks.  It's an emotional time for me.

This is her birthday card.  She was an extra in the new Spider-Man Homecoming movie coming out July 7.  You can actually see her in the the first trailer that came out!  So she is into Spider-Man right now -- LOL!



I went on the Cricut Design Space last night and was so excited to see a new Marvel digital cartridge full of Spider-Man.  So I had to make a card for her.


I took a close up of Spider-Man to show you the details.  The red and blue pieces do cut out separately, but the machine drew all the webs and spider on the red!  I just love it!!

Thank you Cricut for releasing this!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy Mother's Day!

Hello everyone and Happy Mother's Day!  The Trendy Gals made some projects to share with you today.  We used the new Tin Tie Bags and Pink Ribbon set.  I also used Pink Midnight Trendy Twine, a Pink Tag-It and Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dots.


The pink ribbon set has four different pink ribbons in it.  I used three of them on the bag itself.  Next, I wrapped the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine around the bag along with my stamped Tag It.


I finished off the bag by adding two die cut hearts.  It's a quick and simple gift!  The bags are super nice inside and could hold some yummy cookies or other baked goods :)

I hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day!  Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other fabulous projects :)

Trendy Twine -- Have a Wonderful Day!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  The design team had a few months off, but I am so glad to be back in the swing of things, creating and posting again :)

This month, we are featuring Pink Midnight Trendy Twine and the Chocolate Boxes from the store.  I just love this twine!


I filled my Chocolate Box with some pink and silver Hershey Kisses.  I still had some in a special Valentine bag (I know, how did I still have some left?! - hahaha)

The flower with leaf is a cut from the Cricut Explore.  It drew the black lines on it too.  I picked this cut since it had the black drawing to go with the pink/black twine.  I did wrap the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine around my Chocolate Box about four times and tied the bow before adding my flower with dimensional tape.


The tag is a die cut that I stamped with a sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set.  I also used dimensional tape on the tag and added a small self-adhesive enamel heart to the tag.

It's a quick and simple little gift and perfect for Mother's Day which is coming up soon!
Make sure to visit Annie's Paper Boutique to find all these fun goodies.

Growing In Unity Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Today is a Growing in Unity Blog Hop! I just love playing with my Unity Stamps and was excited that it was time for the GIU gals that already posted this year to hop.

I was torn on which set to use.  I have so many I love and so many that I haven't used yet :) I did make several cards and this one was my favorite.

I used the Hang In There Lady Set (it's on sale today!).  It's just such a cute little lady bug and it comes with three sentiments that I love.


This is a great stamp to make a quick card with.  There's not a lot of coloring.  I used my red Zig Clean Color marker to color the ladybug in and to add a bit of color to the word wishes.  I then used a clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to wish flower, hearts around the ladybug and the word wishes.  Adding it the the wishes made it a watercolor effect and I liked the way it turned out.


I used a border die to add some detail to the white and red layers on the side.  And I finished the card off with three red enamel hearts.


Be sure to comment on all the blogs in hop for your chance to win a Unity Prize package!  There will be two winners :)
