Trendy Bakers Twine - Spread a little Happy Treat

Hello and Happy Thursday Crafty Friends!
 I'm back as Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!

This month they are featuring Lemon Midnight Trendy Twine

I created a Fun Summertime Treat Holder --

I found the wrap treat holder in the Silhouette Store (#290040)
It came with the scallop frame & rectangle for dressing up
your treat holder!

It was super quick to put together since you just put your
bag top through a hole then tie it with a triple bow using
pretty Lemon Midnight Trendy Twine! 😉

My Clear bag is the Large Treat Sacks Gusset Bag

I used some Designer Papers from Doodlebug & Stamps Of Life
The Stitched Sun is a die from MFT
The Shades is another SVG I got from the Silhouette Store (#142364)
I shrunk them down to fit my sun -

The smile stamp on the sun is from Pink & Main
called Sweet Faces 3 - I covered everything except the
mouth, for stamping on my sun -

The Sentiment stamp is from Annie's Paper Boutique

It's called Choose Happy

 it has such Happy sentiments and I love the
variety - This is a must-have for crafters!

You're Fintastic!

Hello & Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
I have a super fun Card to show ya today!

I seem to be playing with Sharks & Bees
this month besides my Christmas cards!
What a crazy combo! hahahaha

I'm using the Digital Paper Collection called
and my trusty old Silhouette Program

How CUTE is this?? I love the purple shark!

I designed everything in my program, just dragging and dropping colors
here and there - I printed everything out on some
Bazzill White 12 x 12 cardstock - Then sprayed my sheet with
some Acrylic Spray then proceeded to let my Cameo
cut out all my pieces

I used a Stitched Rectangle Frame die from My Creative Time
The Sentiment is from Lawn Fawn (Fintastic Friends) and I
heat embossed it with clear embossing powder -

Here's a Screen Shot of my design and pieces before cutting it all out

Of course, I did the inside as well - I thought this might be fun to send 
to a crafty friend!

Penguin Xmas...

Hello & Happy Tuesday Crafty friends!
We are Midway thru July already
and I've seen lots of Christmas in July designs and sales! 

So, I guess I better share another
Christmas in July Holiday card with you!!

I'm using 2 Digi Sets from Polka Dot Orchard today!

Check out my Sweet card --

Isn't he the cutest?? I ADORE Penguins, so I thought why not
use the Santa Hat from the one Digi Set and place it
on that sweet penguin's head from the other digi set!

The Hat & Penguin were colored with my Stampin' Blends markers
The DP is from Photoplay (Here comes Santa) 6x6 pad

The sentiment was printed on some Neenah solar white
cardstock and die cut out with a Stitched Rectangle die

I made a triple bow with some Candy Cane Trendy Twine
and added a tiny little silver bell (Oriental Trading)

Dies that were used - Stitched Square die (Lawn Fawn)
Stitched Scallop Border die, Stitched Oval die, & 
Stitched Rectangle Fram die -MCT

Of course, the inside is dressed up as well -
The Stitched Banner die & Scallop border are from MCT

I think this turned out really cute and can't wait to mail it off to someone!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Bee's....

Hello and Happy Thursday Crafty Peeps!
I was playing around in my Silhouette program
and made these super Fun Cards - 

Aren't they cute??? I thought they turned out adorable!

I realized after I started taking the pictures that I forgot to
put a sentiment on the fronts! OOPS!!

Here's a close up of one of the cards - 
I Popped up the sweet little bee's
Funny that I say "sweet" for bees! Real Bee's are NOT Sweet! 
And I'm allergic to them! (Fun Fact) LOL

I'm using Digital Files for the bees (FlyPixel Studio)
And the Papers (Scrap de Yas)

The Clear Adhesive gems are from Stampin' Up & CTMH
I used Fun Foam to pop up the design on the Black Cardstock
And I added Some Clear Wink of Stella to all the black areas
on the little bees - 

Here's a look at the inside of my cards - I added more cute bees
and I trimmed a strip of the DP to go along the bottom -
I used a stitched Rectangle frame die to add a little something as well

The Sentiment is a Digital Stamp set from Polka Dot Orchard
It's called Bee Hoppy

It's supposed to read "Hoppy Thoughts for my BEE-utiful Friend"

But I wanted it to say "HAPPY" instead, so all I did was
print out the original sentiment then I took my black
Micron pen and added a little line to the "O" and
BAM I made Hoppy into Happy!!!

Nice way to get a little more out of your Digital stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Have a Terrific Day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Have a Happy Day!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!
 I'm THRILLED and HONORED to be the
Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!

This month they are featuring Lemon Midnight Trendy Twine

Here's what I created using this beautiful Twine!

What do you guys think??? 
I love the twine as the skirt layer on the dress -

Here's a close up of the dress - I took the top layer of the paper skirt and added
adhesive all over it, then I started to add strips of the twine - I trimmed off
the access overhang of twine from the top and bottom of the skirt
 then I started to paper piece the whole dress together -
I added some paper flowers and tiny gems - then I made
a triple bow to add to the waist part of the dress -

I made a second card just using only the paper pieces and adding a
Triple Bow with the Lemon Midnight twine - 

The Sentiment stamps are also from Annie's Paper Boutique

It's called SMILE

 it has such awesome sentiments and I love the
different fonts - I believe this is a set for every crafter

Hello & Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!
It's Christmas in July! YAY - 

It means we have 5 1/2 months til Christmas! YIKES!!! 
And you ALL know how fast that'll fly by! Am I right?

As you guys know, I decided 2 years ago (I think)
to start making 1 Christmas card a week -
 It has been a blessing in disguise! 

Not only am I keeping up with my vow to make them...
I actually get them done early enough to already
start on the next years' cards! How crazy is that???

I gotta say, I've enjoyed making them and
it really doesn't take away from any of my other crafting -

So, this month I'm gonna be showcasing
some Christmas cards I made this past Sunday!

Polka Dot Orchard created a New Digi Set -

It's Called: Magic of Christmas

Isn't it CUTE??? 
The images were designed by one of Jessica's Designers! 
How AWESOME is that!!!

Well, I had a Ball playing with the new images 
that I made 5 cards on Sunday!
I'm soooo Ahead on Christmas cards!

Anywho... Here's one of the cards I created -

I printed out the (Ho!Ho!Ho!) sentiment on some
Neenah Solar White Cardstock, then I added some
holiday Washi tape across the card - 
Then I die cut it out with a 
Stitched Frame Rectangle Die from MCT

I colored up the image with some Stampin' Blends Markers
and attached it to my card front

Of course, my card isn't complete unless I do the inside as well
(That saves me on time) come the holidays! :)

I used another piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and
printed out the cute inside sentiment -
I added a strip of washi tape & a cute tree image also
from Polka Dot Orchard - that set is called: 

That Bear is Adorable!
 I can't wait to show you what I made with him!!

Thanks so much for stopping By!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Peeps!
Do you have BIG plans for the 4th of July this week?
Going anywhere? or staying home and chillin'?

Me? I'll be staying home and probably crafting!
No fireworks... maybe some grilling & a salad or two
I'm a pretty simple gal, easy is always best for me! LOL

Recently I downloaded an Adorable Digital
Shark Tank kit and I had to make some cards
with it - So today I'm gonna show you
one of those Fun cards -

OMWORD... Isn't this just so fun??

I love that Sharks face!!! It makes me giggle!!

I started by using some Distress Oxides to create the background
While I let it dry completely I opened up my Silhouette Program
and pulled in the Digital Shark and seaweed, then I added the bubbles
in different sizes, then I added a yellow stitched frame

I got everything set up the way I wanted then put my Distress
Oxide paper through my printer - 

I used a second sheet of white paper to print out the sharks
and seaweed then cut them out with my Cameo - 

Everything was sprayed with some Acrylic Sealer

Then I added the Sentiment from (Lawn Fawn)
with versamark ink, and then I added some clear embossing
Powder over that and heat set it -
I put my card front through my big shot with the
Stitched Frame Die from (My Creative Time)
then added some fun foam to the back side before
placing it onto my White Card Base -

Of course, I had to share the inside of the card as well with you - 
The sentiment was Digitally created in my Silhouette
and I used the Stitched Rectangle Frame die from (My Creative Time)
along with a little border and a smaller Shark with Seaweed -

This is going to be a fun card to mail out to someone!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS 4th of July!!!

was a looonnng slow blink! 😁

Today I have a Home Decor Project 
to share with you !!! WHAT?

I know.... I know... It's been a while since
I made one! Crazy! Especially since I have
sooo many I need to get made!

Isn't it CUTE??? It looks cute on my shelf anyway! 😁

So, I found the plain Lemon Sign in the
Dollar bin at Target and I knew I could make it into
a simple sign for Summer -

I used 4 different colors of Vinyl
The Flowers are Pebbles Puffy Stickers and
I added 2 Clear Adhesive gems to them
The Cute Sentiment is from the Silhouette Store (#260696)
