Guest Designer - Candi

Hi Everyone!!! Candi here from again with my second guest designer post for June. As a reminder this month is featuring Blue Berry trendy twine, and you still have a couple of days to enter the challenge Trendy Twine June Challenge.

My project for today consists of a gift for my 8yr old daughter, a dream journal for recording her dreams, a twine wrapped pen (which I feel every lover of twine needs), and a bookmark for her before bed book reading.

I used the Blue Berry trendy twine and 2 buttons to form a sort of clasp for the journal, the papers inside are also attached with twine. I found pens at Target which I could take apart and wrap the barrel with twine before reassembling, and lastly I made a tassel for the bookmark. If you'd like details on this project please visit me on my blog

I hope you've enjoyed my projects this month and aren't sick of me yet, since you're stuck with me for the next 6 months <wink> I'll be back next week as part of the new design team!

Enjoying The Ride

Hey everyone!

Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly :D Today i have a fun card to share featuring some yummy Blueberry Trendy Twine! There are still a couple of days left to enter the June Trendy Twine Challenge so I wanted to give you a little more inspiration for the challenge theme: Take Flight. Of course your entries will need to have 3 buttons as well as the blueberry twine and birds and/or butterflies, my button supply needs a little boosting so I cheated ;)

I created this box card by cutting a piece of paper to 5.5in x 9.75in and scoring at 4.25in, 4.75in, 9in, and 9.5in. When you fold it up you will see it becomes the size of an A2 card that is 1/2 inch deep, You will use the last bit that is 1/4 inch to adhere the card to itself completing the square. Then I used my spellbinders labels 8 (the second to the largest one) to cut the opening.

The butterflies are dangling by some Blueberry Trendy Twine that is adhered to the top on the inside of the card.

I finished my card off by adding this fun "Enjoying the ride" sentiment from the My Thoughts Exactly Up, Up, and Away stamp set.

Have a wonderful day!
<3 Alyssa

Guest Designer Candi

Hi Everyone! Candi here from I'm thrilled to be a guest designer this month and to share my projects with you!

I absolutely love the Blue Berry trendy twine and couldn't wait to work with it. I've decided to keep with the theme of butterflies & birds which is used for this months challenge. I love making two part gifts so my project for you today is a shadow box card with hanging birdcage & a birdcage complete with 3d paper bird & perch.

I used a sweet little bow of Trendy Twine to hang my birdcage on the card and used it again to wrap the base of my birdcage and to ensure our little feathered friend didn't escape by wrapping the cage door. I'd love to share more details with you, please feel free to visit my blog. Look for me again next week when I'll be back to share another fun project! Have a wonderful day!

Father's Day

I hope everyone one had a nice Father's Day with the dads in their lives.  I had to work today, but went to see my Dad and Grandfather afterwards.  I just wanted to share my super quick and very simple Father's Day gift. 

My family is kind of the same about gifts.  We don't want a lot of cluttery stuff that just takes up room somewhere, so we usually do cash or gift cards.  As I said earlier, everything was very simple.  For one, I waited til the last possible minute; and two, I had to make two other gifts. 

I used Alyssa's super cute stamp for the "You are my pop" tags from her Father's Day Subway Art set.  I like the set and will use some of the stamps for other occasions too.  For the "soda-lightful" tags, I had to print those in print shop and I just inked the edges.  So I did three "you are my pop" and three "soda-lightful" tags so each bottle has a cute tag.  The sweet little kraft bag has my Dad's gift card to Home Depot.  I just stamped an assortment of Dad words from Alyssa's set to decorate the tiny little bag.  Lastly, I made the simple little Father's Day tag.  Of course, I used Trendy Twine.  I mean a project just isn't complete without it ;) 

Dad thought the Root Beer was a cute idea.  I wanted to add a sweet  little treat to his gift card, so I was happy he liked it.

Hope you have a super fabulous week, my twiners!
