Trendy Twine - Sending Hugs Candy Treats

Hi There!

I'm over on the Trendy Blog sharing some fun candy treats for any occasion. They would be super cute for Back to school treats, get well treats, Valentine treats or just because treats! I've used the new "Smile" stamp set and boy am I loving all the fun sentiments.

I started my treats with the skinny candy bags and filled them with red hot candy.  


I created some fun little tags to go with my candy bags. I simply die cut some stitched tags and coordinated my pattern papers.


I added a die cut heart and stamped the sentiment on the heart. I picked two sentiments that are universal and can be used for almost any occasion.



I wrapped each tag with Cranberry Twine and looped the top. 

Thank you for stoppin by today!

Hi There!

Hi There!  
It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week we are celebrating! It's a birthday challenge and it happens to be our very own Esther's Birthday, so Happy Birthday to her!

I made a Birthday card set using some die cut candles.

I used heavy duty white card stock and die cut them with rectangular stitched dies. I also added foam tape for dimension and various pattern papers.

Lastly, I stamped each card with a birthday sentiment.

Die Cuttin' Diva's - Thank you

Hi There!  
It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week we're giving thanks! Come by and show off your Thank You projects. Today I'm sharing a Thank you gable box for a teacher.
I started with a gable box and decorated it with a school theme. I wanted to have a Thank you gift ready for this year.  I used a die cut label and stamped a Thank you sentiment.

I used some die cut numbers on top of a school theme pattern paper and tied it up with a Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine bow.

Introducing our new stamps and clips!
Today I'm showcasing the Documenting the Everyday stamp set and the Smile stamp Set
I created a fun School layout with the new Documenting the Everyday stamps. Oh these phrases/sentiments are perfect for all your memory keeping!

I used a lot of the stamps in my layout and I think my favorite is the "place photo here" I love that!

I used a notebook paper die as the photo mats. I had the idea to use small mats for those tiny photos that come in the school picture orders. I never know what to do with them. So I came up with this idea :)   
Another fun new item is this adorable paper clip... Oh my gosh, it's SOOOO cute! I just loved how it looked on the tag along with the Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine


Next up is the SMILE set

I created a fun Birthday set. 

I think most 13 year olds appreciate a gift card or money so these muslin bags are the perfect way to give a small gift. 

The bag itself is super cute but you know us crafters have to make it look ever cuter! I added a tag with some masculine colors :) I used a grey distress ink for the sentiment and added a die cut number "13"
The card is very simple and shows of the sentiment from the new set perfectly!

Trendy Twine - Back to School

Hi There!
I'm over on the Trendy Blog sharing some fun Back to school treats using our spotlight product Medium Candy Bags. I know students will be using plenty of No. 2 pencils, so that's always a great little treat to give a student.

 Our schools actually do not allow mechanical pencils or any colorful or patterned pencil so that leaves a pretty basic No. 2 pencil. We go through tons of them, I mean tons (have you heard of pencil wars) yes they still play it :) 


I wanted to decorate them with school themed paper. I found a fun pencil stamp and I printed the Back to School sentiment. I tied gorgeous Cranberry Trendy Twine to the top of the pencil toppers and in the middle of the treats.

I love the school lined paper and look at that twine. So pretty! I colored the pencil with copics and added glossy accents.


I found some fun little school themed pencil erasers at the dollar store to add a fun touch to the little treats. 

This month the team theme is Back to School, we will have lots of inspiration for you all month!

Stop over to the Boutique and grab all your back to school goodies.

Die Cuttin' Diva's - Sketch challenge

Hi There!

It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week it's our monthly sketch challenge. I always love the sketch challenge and try to push myself out of the box. So here is what I came up with.

I wanted to use some summer colors and I actually had some of these papers sitting on my desk. I wouldn't normally pair them together but I kind of like the way they looked. Here is the sketch

I turned it and used it vertically.

I used die cut labels and butterfly from My creative time. The circle die cut is from Spellbinders. As you can see I'm sort of in a clean and simple mood. Most of my cards have been leaning towards that style. It might be because I have been cleaning and purging many items in our home. It feels wonderful!

Please pop over to Die Cuttin Divas Challenge and check out the inspiration from DT and join us for the challenge! We would love to have you.

Trendy Twine - Get Well

Hi There!

I'm over on the Trendy blog sharing a fun little get well gift. Can you believe we are already at the end of July? Wow, summer is just zooming by! The entire month of July the TT team has been sharing the awesome color Stars and Stripes and I hope you have gained tons of inspiration for projects that you can use this awesome twine not just for patriotic projects! Here is one more :)
Here is an idea for a get well gift. Purchase a plant, herbs or potted flowers and give as a get well gift I think plants and flowers are medicine for the soul :) I put the plant in a cute tin and added a fun handmade tag. Using some TT planner stamps and of course Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine.
I just think this band-aid and medicine bottle are so cute together,

I stamped the stamps and then hand cut them and put them on an embossed die cut circle. I added that fabulous twine and there you have a fun little get well gift :)
