Trendy Twine ~ Denim Pillow Box

 Good morning crafty friends! Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  I have this treat box to share with you.  

I started with a Medium Kraft Pillow Box and wrapped it with two colors of DCWV's Paper Backed Denim and added a line of Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine between the two.  Next, I wrapped a strip of DCWV's Vellum with Foil around the center.  I colored the red areas in with marker.
To embellish, I added a Kraft Tag with Metal Rim with a banner using a sentiment from the You & Me Planner Stamp set.  A bow of Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine finished off the tag.  The final addition was a trio of red sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley.

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

Shabby Chic Thimble Box

Good morning crafty friends!  I am so excited to share my latest project with you!  When Jodi Warner released her JGW Parlor Patchwork on SVG Attic, I was immediately drawn to it!  I used the thimble box that is in that set to create today's project.
All the fabulous details in the file are so perfect!  I used DCWV's Minty Lace stack (available at AC Moore stores).  The colors of the paper and the embellishments really create a shabby chic feel to the thimble.  There is a wonderful tutorial HERE for assembling this thimble box.
Here is a view of how it opens up.
And a close up of the embellishments.  I added Pearl Pen dots, pins, roses, crinkled seam binding and a sewing machine charm.
And here is the whole JGW Parlor Patchwork set available at SVG Attic!

Frameable Quote and Card

Good morning crafty friends! Today is my day to post on the DCWV blog.  I wanted to share a a couple quick projects that you can do with the brand new DCWV Frameable Quotes stacks that are in Michaels stores right now!

First of all, I took one of the 5x7 pages from copper foiled Frameable Quotes stack and added watercolor to it. I just wanted a little color to highlight the Thankful sentiment. Once it was dry, I simply added it to my frame and it was done! Easy peasy!

Second, I created a card using the excess paper that is along the 5x7 quotes in that stack  What?  Keep those 1"x5" extra pieces?  YES!  The print from the quote background is continued onto that area, so use them to create something wonderful!

My card used 6 of the 1x5 strips of paper in varying prints.  I used meduim gray and charcoal paper from DCWV's Double Sided Cardstock stack as the base for the card as well as the layer behind the paper strips.  I stamped a sentment on one of the 1x5 paper strips.

And here is the finished product!  A simple yet classy card!

Want to see everything that is in this copper foiled Frameable Quotes stack?  Here is a flip through video that I made of it!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

 This album features a lot of Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine, which is perfect for summer!  The file that I used for this album is from SVG Attic's Tropical Haven set.

Minty Lace Cards

Good morning DCWV fans!   Beth from the DCWV Social Media Design Team here with you today.  I know you all are totally LOVING the new stacks that are in AC Moore stores, so I created these cards from the Minty Lace stack to share with you.
The first one was for my sweet niece's birthday!  I used some metal dies and SVG files to create this fun Minnie themed card.  The Minty Lace papers were absolutely perfect for it!
Here is a closeup of the center.  Want a tip about that doily?  I used the back side of the paper face up with my metal die!  It is a win-win situation, no need to dig for white paper!
Card #2 utilizes the pennants that are on one of the pages in the Minty Lace stack.  I chose that to be my focal point and added some Trendy Twine and pearls.
This stack has beautiful pearl and teal foil treatments on half of the pages.  You really need to check it out!
If you you haven't seen the flip through video of this stack yet, you can see it here:
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Oriental Trading Summer Party Ideas

Hello friends!  Happy Fourth of July!  While you are enjoying the holiday with friends and family, you may be planning your next summer get together.  Oriental Trading is the place to go for those party supplies.

A couple summers ago, my family was in charge of hosting a big family reunion and we went with a Luau theme.  Of course, we ordered products from Oriental Trading :)  They have such a wide variety of summer themed party supplies!  Here are just a few:

Grass table skirt

Tropical scene photo backdrop


Photo props to use with the backdrop scene!

It wouldn't be a Luau party without the Leis!


 Very fun, right?  Even if you aren't planning any large events, Oriental Trading also has a great selection of birthday party products.  My youngest son turns 4 at the end of this month and I am going to shop for his birthday party supplies very soon.  We did a Sesame Street theme using Oriental Trading products last year for his birthday and it was a hit!

So, what is your next party event going to be?

Trendy Twine ~ Spelling Bee Layout

Today my Trendy Twine sisters and I have memory keeping projects up on the Trendy Twine blog. Stop over there for even more inspiration!  Here is what I created for the occasion.
This layout is documenting my oldest son winning the school spelling bee for the lower grades when he was in 2nd grade.  His winning word was "university".  I used Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine to string all of the medal dies and create a banner with that word.
I also wrapped more Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around my journaling banner.
Whimsy Stamps' Contest Ribbon stamps and dies were perfect for this layout!  The papers I used are from DCWV's Paper Backed Denim stackVellum with Foil stackSeaside Yacht stack, and Modern Metallic stack.

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