Trendy Tuesday- Sweet Thanks

Hey Everyone!
It's Jamie here, and I'm super excited to share my project with you today!!! 

This month we're featuring Grape Fizz Trendy Twine, so I used some of that and some Strawberry Cupcake.


I stamped the lollipop on white card stock and then used a dot glue runner on the candy part to attach the Grape Fizz and Strawberry Cupcake twine. I added a little twine on top of the ribbon and a sweet bow in the corner to finish it off.
For complete details on my card please visit my blog HERE.

Don't forget we still have the monthly challenge going on, details for that are HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Trendy Twine Tuesday!

Hi Everyone!
Stacey from Stacey's Creative Corner here and today I get to show you a super simple project that I made using the fabulous Grape Fizz Trendy Twine!

I absolutely love the purples in this twine!
Purple is my favorite color so I was extremely excited to be able to work with this color this month and make something simple and cute for my craft room.


I decided to make a little dry erase board for my craft desk. I left the inside blank to make it easier to read the notes I leave myself haha! That twine across the top really pulls it all together and gives it that extra cuteness factor! It is so simple but I love the simplicity of it ;)

Twine Used:

Don't forget about the May challenge, you can find it HERE

Have a great crafty day!

Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a super, wonderful Mother's Day.  I worked part of the day and then went to celebrate the special day with my Mom.  I bought her a couple of things, but decided to make a few things too.  I made something for both my Mom and Grandma.  Just wanted to share what I did.

I made Mom a memo holder from one of the sweet tins in the store.  I love the size of this one.  It can be used for all sorts of good stuff.  I used  my Sizzix to cut out a flower which I decorated with paper tape (I'm really loving that stuff!)  And then I decorated the tin window with the same tape.  Might be a little too much pink for some.  I'm a pink fanatic.  Used Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and a button to finish off my flower.  I used Shabby Chic Stamp Co. Mother's Day stamps.  They have a ton of sweet sentiments.  I punched the tag with one of my EK Success punches and finished it off with my Valentine Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine.

The small envelope is for a gift card that I purchased for Mom as well.



 



For the memo sheets, I printed the red lines first and then I used one of my Sizzix dies to cut out the cards.  These are about the size of a 3x5 index card, so they are nice and big.  I stamped "I'm so blessed to have you!" along the top and added a flower stamp at the bottom.

  

We both love Scentsy, so these were her "flowers."  I just stamped different sentiments on them (nothing fancy).




This next one is for my Grandmother.  I did her's in blue and green and used paper from my stash.  I also used more tape to frame the window and added lots of buttons -- all kinds of stuff to make it pretty.  I bought Hershey's Nuggets on the way to add to Gram's tin, so she would have something yummy inside.



 These were so fun and easy to make. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Tag and Sleeve

I'm so not a crafty person, hence why I have an amazing DT (to hide the fact that I'm not crafty).  My DT is always asking me what kind of stuff I make.  Me, I'm not creative.  That is why I love looking at all the pretty things everyone creates.  This week I thought I'd be brave and try to make something.  Something easy.  I'm more of a tag person than a card person, probably because they are easier for me to make.

So, here we go.  Are you ready for this?  Well... I'm not sure if I am.  But here it is.



Pretty simple, but I was sort of impressed with myself.  The flowers were cut from two different sizzix dies.  The paper is from my paper hording stash.  Yay!  I finally used some.  The envelope is a kraft sleeve that I inked the edges on.  I used some of the new paper tape that is in the store.  It has to pink, of course!  I'm really loving that tape.  So pretty and super easy to use.  I will have to buy myself every color.  I will be using that A LOT.  The button is from the Buttons Galore Sherbert collection.  (There are a ton of buttons in that bag).  I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine, what project would be complete without some yummy twine?  The tag is one of the tags that I made from cardstock that I printed pink graph grip lines on then used a sizzix die (a Tim Holtz one) and topped it with a kraft reinforcement.  Then I stamped a cute little saying "My World is Brighter Because of You" by Studio G.  Gotta love those $1 stamps!  Then I tied some pretty Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine to go with all the nice pink and brown.

So who did I send this to?  Kim (my Design Team Coordinator) along with some goodies as a little thank you for helping me so much. 

I hope you liked my very first crafty project.  And some of you can get up off the floor from laughing so hard ;)

Have a great weekend, Trendy twiners!

Hugs, Lesley

Guest Designer Wednesday with Laura

It's always so fun to have guest designers on the blog.  Today we have Laura from Scrapaddict {4} Life and you are all in for a real treat.  She did a beautiful card for Mother's Day.  Since we are featuring the Grape Fizz Trendy Twine this month, Laura used it for her project, too.





Don't you just love this card?  I do!  I LOVE dress forms.  There is just something about them.  And the way she embellished the skirt with twine is a fabulous idea. 

Thank you so much, Laura, for taking the time to guest for us today.  And the good news is she will be back again next week to share another project with us.  How exciting is that?  Please go to her blog and leave her a little love.  We love and appreciate our Trendy twiners.
