Warm Wishes Card

Hello! Today I have a sweet card to share created with the new Wintertime Peachy Pieces SVGs.  I created my card using the adorable Mr. Big Head Snowman.  I stamped his face with the Candy Cane 1 7/8" Face Set also from Peachy Keen Stamps.
My card was created with the DCWV Basic & Brights stack using my Scalloped Stitched Nested dies from Gina Marie Designs.  I wrapped some Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine around the base of my card.  For a finishing touch, I stamped a sentiment from the APB Let It Snow stamp set.

Craftwell - Christmas Countdown

Hello, this is my second post for the day and I am sharing a fun project for kids over on the Craftwell blog.  I created a festive countdown calendar for Christmas.
My project started with an old clipboard that I was getting ready to toss out and then decided to repurpose it.  I used my eBrush, the Siphon adapter and some gorgeous Dixie Bell Chalk paint in Rebel Yellow.  I mixed in the paint with some water in the glass bottle to use with the Siphon adapter.
The end result of my painting was a beautiful, chalky, matte finish with great coverage.  There was no priming required with the Dixie Belle Chalk paint.  I sanded the edges of the clipboard for a vintage appearance.  Next, I used the eBrush to transform my die cuts by shading the edges.
Several of the die cuts and a left over scrap paper were embossed with the Teresa Collins Design Grids embossing folder using my Cut n' Boss.  The added texture from the embossing folder combined with the eBrush shading bring the die cuts to life.
I ran each of the bases for the numbers through my Xyron sticker maker and adhered them to some scrapbooking paper to create my countdown calendar.
Everything was adhered to the clipboard base.  I embellished the clip with a bit of washi tape and a ribbon bow, both with the countdown theme.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Oriental Trading - Treat Boxes

Hello!  Today I have a special project to share featuring some Christmas products from Oriental Trading.  I was amazed at how many fun and festive items are available for Christmas.  For my project, I used the Red & White Christmas Mini Paper Stack and the Winter Wonderland Die Cuts for the snowmen.
I formed the Mini Silver Treat boxes and adhered some paper on each of the sides trimming it to size with my Fiskars Sure Cut Paper Trimmer.  Next, I popped out the die cut snowmen and adhered them to front of each box.  A couple of scattered snowflakes and some Stormy Trendy Twine finished off my treat boxes.
I also have two different cards to share created from the same papers and die cut sheets.  My first card was embellished with a couple of metal snowflake brads from the Christmas Embellishment Kit and layered with some adhesive stickers.  The embellishment kit has 360 pieces and is great for decorating those holiday projects.
I kept both of my cards fairly simple to showcase the gorgeous papers, die cuts and embellishments available in the Scrapbooking & Paper Crafting section of the site.
I hoped you enjoyed checking out my projects using my new goodies from Oriental Trading. These items are available in the Christmas Store and the Scrapbooking & Paper Crafting Store from Oriental Trading. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

This review is based strictly on my opinion.  I was provided the samples free of charge by Oriental Trading to provide my honest review.  No other type of compensation was received.  All ideas and opinions are my own.

Trendy Twine - Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  Today the Trendy Twine design team has a special post to share some amazing Thanksgiving projects with our fans.  For my project, I created a card.  The base of my card was die cut using the DCWV Boho stack with some new dies from Gina Marie Designs, thanks to my DT sister Beth for enabling!  The dies cut so beautifully and are very inexpensive, I know I will be getting some more.   I layered the base of my card with a hand cut flag created with the DCWV Gold Threaded Burlap stack.  The flag was wrapped with a bit of Pumpkin Spice Trendy Twine and topped off with a pearl button.
I stamped a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set on a cork scalloped circle and adhered it to the flag.  Some leaves were cut from the Destinations cartridge and shaded with my eBrush.
Head on over to the Trendy Twine blog to check out the amazing projects created by the design team. All of the crafty goodies used on my card are available in the store.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Trendy Twine - Thankful Layout

Happy Monday!  I have a layout page to share over on the Trendy Twine blog today featuring some gorgeous Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine.  I just love this twine color for fall projects which inspired my layout page created with the DCWV Boho stack.  The large gold doily was fussy cut from the same stack.
The title of my layout page was cut from the Creative Memories cartridge and popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  A whimsical banner was cut from a set of dies and accented with the twine.  My layout page was embellished with a few flowers and doilies from my stash.  I tucked in a couple of tags and added a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set.
Head on over to the store to check out this gorgeous twine for those Fall projects along with all kinds of crafty goodies.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hello! The Trendy Twine Design Team is joining in on a birthday celebration for Janice (Lesley's mom).  Each of the design team members and some of our Trendy Twine friends sent Janice some birthday wishes.  I created a fun birthday card created with the KaDoodle Bug Designs Bake Sale file for the cupcake. The bottom of the cupcake was embossed with the Paper Studio Flourish Journal embossing folder and the top of the cupcake was embellished with some Stickles.
Some gorgeous Watermelon Taffy Trendy Twine was added to the cupcake and tag.  I added a Swirly Page Dot to the tag.  A doily from my stash was tucked under the tag.  The sentiment is from the APB Smile stamp set. The base of my card was created with the DCWV Color Embossed stack.
