SheetLoad of Feminine Birthday Cards

Hello all!  Today I am sharing yet another SheetLoad of Cards made with papers from the Echo Park's Just Be You kit.  So far, I have made 27 cards from that kit, which I am super happy with!  If you want to see the other posts with these papers, click HERE and HERE.
The SheetLoad sketch that I followed was from June 2020.  The stamp is retired from My Craft Spot's Chalkboard Sentiments and I inked it with Scrapbook.com's Midnight Blue hybrid ink.  I colored bits of the sentiment with Artify markers and also punched three holes in the top of the sentiment strip before matting it with the navy cardstock for a little extra visual interest.  To embellish, I added a trio of adhesive gems to the bottom right corner.  Adhesives used were ATG and Bearly Art precision glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SheetLoad of Thank You, Baby, & Misc. Cards

Hello all and happy Friday!  Today I am sharing a grouping of cards that I created with prompting from Call Me Crafty Al.  She gave a challenge to use a scrapbooking kit you previously purchased and create with it!  Well, create I did, and I also used her January 2020 SheetLoad of Cards sketch to use multiple sheets of the 12x12" papers from the kit.  The kit I used was Echo Park's Just Be You kit.
This is the first set of cards I made using the sketch...thank you cards!  You can see they differ a bit from each other, but are basically the same. Products used on these include: wavy edge die, GMD Slash Stitched Round Square die, Corner Chomper, enamel dots, Unity I Consider You Special stamp, SB.com Midnight Blue ink, stickers from the kit, ATG, Bearly Art glue and foam tape.  There were 6 cards made in this way.
I made 3 baby girl cards next using the following supplies: wavy edge die, Cloud 9 Design Simple Thoughts-Baby stamp, SB.com Midnight Blue ink, Pink Fresh Studio fancy label frame die, corner chomper, stickers from the kit, ribbon, ATG, Bearly Art glue and foam tape. 
These final 3 cards didn't follow the sketch exactly, but the patterned papers were still cut the same way.  Supplies for these include: GMD Fishtail Banner die, GMD banner border die, Annie's Paper Boutique Choose Happy stampSB.com Midnight Blue ink stickers from the kit, ATG, foam tape, and Bearly Art glue.
As a bonus card, I saw this 4x6 panel in the paper kit and knew I had to make it into a card for my niece!  I simply cut around the panel with a GMD wonky stitched rectangle die, matted it with cadstock and added a piece of patterned cardstock behind it.  The two cacti in the front were stickers from the kit that I popped up with foam tape.  I kept the card simple, only adding an enamel dot in the top right corner.
There you have it!  A total of 13 cards made with the Echo Park Just Be You kit!  I'll let you in on a secret, while I had the papers out, there were two more papers that were really calling my name, so I had to make those into a sheetload of cards as well, so you will be seeing more cards from this kit very soon!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Halloween Treats & Tags

Hello all and welcome to Halloween month!  I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with these fun treats with tags.  They showcase our featured products of the month, Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine and Medium Candy Bags.I started by wrapping Hershey's Nuggets with paper from DCWV's Eek-a-Boo 6x6 stack.  Seven of the nuggets fit perfectly in the Medium Candy Bags, and really, chocolate is the perfect treat for any occasion!  Did you notice the small sentiments on the orange paper?  I used all the sentiments from the Happy Halloween stamp set that were less than an inch to stamp fun sayings onto those papers before wrapping the Nuggets.  Don't you just love all the fun fonts in that stamp set?
Here is a close up look of the tag.  I used Mango Large Tag-Its and added strips of patterned paper that I had torn the edges of onto the bottom.  From there, I took four of the long sentiments from the Happy Halloween stamp set and stamped those in black on the tags.  I added a glittery pumpkin sticker and several NEW Enchanting Sequins to embellish.  At the top, I placed a Black Licorice Trendy Page Dot, then wrapped four lengths of Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine around the Medium Candy Bag, bringing it through the hole in the tag and tying a knot.  I did use a standard size hole punch to make the hole in the tag larger to accomodate that much twine.  I left the ends of the Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine stick out resembling eight colorful legs of a spider.
Here is a look at ALL the treats and tags!  As you can see, the Happy Halloween stamp set really got a work out.  I used 8 of the stamps in that set and that was only HALF of them!  If you haven't seen what sentiments are in that set, do yourself a favor and check it out.  Now these treats are ready for my kiddos on Halloween!
Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Annie's Paper Boutique-Wicked Sequin Release

Today is a very exciting day at Annie's Paper Boutique as we release a "Wicked" collection of sequin mixes!  Halloween is such a fun time to create for and with our 4 brand new mixes of sequins, you'll be sure to find just the right one for your projects.  I know you are excited to see what the Design Team has created, but let's take a peek at the new sequins!

For my project, I made a shaped shaker card with my Cameo!  I started with a Hearthsewn file (#50070) from the Silhouette Design Store and edited it to create a shaker out of the hat.  Of course, I used lots of beautiful NEW Bewitching sequins to make this fun interactive card!
Cardstock used include Recollections Haunted Manor, DCWV Glitzy Glitter, and solid cardstocks.  Check out the spider's web trail...it was created with Lime Grapesicle Trendy Twine, attached with Bearly Art precision glue.  Of course, the twine matches the Bewitching sequins perfectly!  To embellish, I glued a thin ribbon to the hat band and also glued Bewitching sequins randomly onto the card.  I am loving the sparkle and shine of those sequins!  The final touch was adding the "Bewitching" sentiment, which was created with the Barghant font.
Be sure to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to see what other faBOOlous projects were made with these new sequins!
