Trendy Bakers Twine~Wonderful Day Floral Card

Hello all and happy Wednesday!  I am sharing a project for the Trendy Twine blog today.  This time, it is a card that I tried a new to me technique on; weaving.
I die cut a scalloped rectangle so it would be easy to evenly space the Trendy Twine around it.  Totally Blue Trendy Twine and Totally Lemon Trendy Twine were wrapped in opposite directions around the white rectangle to create this unique and beautiful background.  I die cut a flower and added a sentiment that I stamped in navy ink from the APB Smile stamp set.  The finishing touch was a few dots of Disco Ball Stickles.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Crafting With Kids

Happy Monday morning! I am on the SVG Attic blog today with these crafts my boys recently created.  They are busy with fun summer projects and sometimes that includes spending time in the craft room with mom :)

First up, a monogrammed treat holder.  The file is from JGW Star Tent Place Cards.  It was very easy to assemble!  The papers used are from The Paper Studio's Vintage Nation paper pad and Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine was used to embellish.
Second, my 8 year old wanted to create a 3D item, and after browsing the SVG Attic website, he decided on this cake slice box from SVGA Make A Wish.  The papers used are from The Paper Studio's Birthday Extravaganza paper pad.
Here is a view with it open.
The final project is this slice form rocket place card from SVG Outta This World.
I hope this post inspires you to get out those papers and cutting machines to create with your kids or grandkids!  It is a great time for bonding with them and passing on your love of paper crafting.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine & Mini Popcorn Boxes

Hello all!  Today my fellow Trendy Twine DT sisters and I have created Father's Day inspiration for you using the new Mini Popcorn Boxes from Annie's Paper Boutique.  Head on over to the Trendy Twine blog to see all of the projects.  Here is what I created.
I started with a Cranberry Mini Popcorn Box and simply hand cut a collar and a necktie shape from white cardstock.  I then cut several lengths of Cherry Midnight Trendy Twine the same size as the necktie and then wrapped and tied the twine towards the top to form the top and bottom part of the "tie".  I then covered the cardstock tie shape with liquid glue and adhered the Trendy Twine to it.
 Once the pieces were on the Cranberry Mini Popcorn Box, I filled it with peanuts wrapped in cellophane and tied it with more Cherry Midnight Trendy Twine, adding a tag with a sentiment from the APB Choose Happy stamp set.

Celebrate Sewing Themed Cards

Happy Friday!  Today I am sharing another personal mission post.  I had the 6x6 Carta Bella Sew Lovely paper pad that I absolutely LOVE.  Seriously.  This paper speaks to me!  I had used it some in other projects, but decided that by making the rest of it up into cards, I could make other people smile from the beautiful prints!
So I went to Pinterest and found this awesome pin from Airbornewife's Stamping Spot and started cutting up my beautiful papers :)  I had these mostly assembled for quite a while, I just needed to figure out what die cuts I wanted on the front.  Now they are all done and I am really happy with how they turned out.  Another unfinished project completed!  Woohoo!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
