Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a project featuring Trendy Twine.
This month the design team is showcasing 
the Halloween Twines and the Skinny candy bags.

The kids always get so much candy for Halloween 
that we always like to send something other than candy.
I filled the Skinny candy bags 
with some Sparkly Halloween pencils.

A close up of the tag.

Thanks so much for checking out my project, 
I hope you were inspired!!
Have a great day!

Hi Everyone!! 
Today some of the talented designers
 from the Trendy Twine Design Team
are sharing some of the new sequins in the store.

I love making shaker cards, they are so fun and playful.
I used one of the cute witches 
from Fraidy Cats (Digi My World).
I wanted her to look like she was flying over the moon.

Here is a close up of the cute witch and shaker moon.

I added a cute Grape Licorice Trendy Twine 
bow to her hat and the side of the card, 
next to the spider web border. The paper is from 
Doodlebug's Halloween Parade.
I added some iridescent sequins from my stash 
to the *NEW* purple, black and bat sequin mix called Grape Licorice Batty-Halloween Sequins.
The grass is cut from a Lawn Fawn grass border die 
from green glitter paper.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Make sure to stop by the Trendy Twine Blog
to see what the rest of the team made.
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Everyone!
I hope your weekend was great!
Mine was eventful as always, full of family time 
and getting the summer stuff put away for the cooler weather!

I am back sharing another cute Owl Nerds card 
I made for the Pink and Main Challenge.

Love these Owls from Owl Nerds and 
the sentiment from Talk Nerdy
I used one of my favorite Doodlebug 6x6 paper pads
Take Note and the Lawn Fawn stitched Journaling die.
I colored the owl and the pencils with Copic markers and added some glossy accents to the Owls glasses 
and as a few enamel accents on the card. 
The other enamel dots are from Recollections.

Hi Everyone!! 
I am back today to share 
 another Mini Coffee cup project.
This time with a Halloween candy theme.

I added some wink of stella and glossy accents for them to sparkle.

I used papers from the Halloween Parade 6x6 paper pad from Doodlebug 
and another favorite of mine, Happy Halloween by Echo Park.

The cup is filled with several different kinds of Halloween candy.
A view of the top of the lid.
I added one of the cute candies there.

Hi Everyone!! 
My BFF Stacey and I have decided to change up
our card swaps and do a fun card collaboration 
with the same stamp set,
we are calling it "Card Harmony".
This is our third card harmony post.
This month was my turn to pick,
This stamps set is just so fun!! 
I loved coloring these cute "nerds".

We were also challenged to use Freshly Made Sketches 126.
Here is my card using the sketch and the stamp set.

I had so much fun making this card for Stacey.
 I hope she loves the card and the bright colors!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful week!
Today, I am sharing a few cards I made for 
with my new Pink and Main stamps 
I ordered for my Birthday.

I used the Whale of a Time stamp set for these cards.
 I ended up making three cards, one hello standard card 
and two 3x3 lunch box notes for my hubby and daughter.

I followed an older Mojo Monday sketch 383 
for my first card.
Aren't these whales just adorable? 
I love that they are just so versatile 
and the sentiments are so fun! 
I used the Splash 6x6 paper pad by Bella Blvd 
for all my cards.
I stamped the wave stamp and the spout splashes 
in Bashful Blue and Pool Party inks 
from Stampin Up and added some clear 
Wink of Stella pen and Glossy accents.
Then added the cute whale that I paper pieced.
I also added my sentiment with white ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.

 This card I made for my hubby, 
I enjoy leaving him some notes in his lunch box.
I stamped the "you" from the same set just masked 
off the rest of the sentiment.
I left his cute tail loose for a little dimension and fun. Then added some white faux stitching around the edge with my white gel pen.

This little cutie is going to be sent in our daughter's lunch.
She loves getting little notes from me 
in her lunch so this is perfect.
This little whale just looks so happy! 
I die cut the waves from the Pink and Main Scallop Waves Die and inked the edges a bit.
Then I added the cute whale and embossed the sentiment using white ink and embossing powder.
I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins in 4mm and 6mm Sparkling clear to look like water from the whale spout and to accent the sentiment. I also couldn't resist adding some chalk to her cheeks.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Hi Everyone!
I hope your day is off to a great start!
Today I am sharing a project for Trendy Twine.
This month the design team is featuring 
For my project, I made a cute little coffee caddy that fits two mini coffee cups.

I found this cute caddy pattern on Pinterest and knew I had to make it.

I used the NEED Coffee stamp set to decorate the caddy, the cups and the handle of the Mini Spoon.
I stamped the cute images on the coffee sleeve and the cup to-go cup for the top.

These cute mini coffee cups fit a single KCup perfectly!
I put one KCup in one cup then filled the other with some Hershey Kisses.

I decorated the caddy with some Cherry Latte Trendy Twine.
I added some to the edges and stitched some hearts around the sentiment
from the NEED Coffee stamp set.
I also added some around the top of the cups 
and used some to hold the mini spoon to the caddy.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderful day!

it would probably be a book or my planner! ;o)
