Monogram Frame

I am sharing an altered frame that I created using Berry Trendy Twine.  I simply wrapped the twine around the frame using some glue.
I added some bling to each of the corners as a finishing touch.  A chipboard "S" was matted on red card stock.  The letter has a glitter texture which is a little hard to see in the pictures.

Pinwheel Card

Today I am over at the Trendy Twine blog and have a birthday card to share.  My friend's birthday is next week so I thought it would be fun to create a card for her using patriotic colors.  Summer reminds me of pinwheels so I used a tutorial on Pinterest to make these.  I just love the red, white and blue colors with the pop of yellow!
I added some Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine to the pinwheels and attached some ribbon to the bottom of the card.  A hand cut flag with a sentiment from Docerela stamps finished off the card.
There are several patriotic twine colors available on sale this month, stop by the store to check them out.

Docerela Creations "Kraft " Challenge

Today we have another challenge for you over at Docerela Creations which is to use "kraft" cardstock on your projects.  For my card, I added some patterned paper to my kraft card.  Some ribbon with a sewing theme was also added to the card.
I created a large tag using the "Life's A Stitch" stamp set and stamped the sewing machine, sentiment and stitching on my tag.  I finished the tag off by adding a button with some jute to coordinate with the card.  The tag was also inked on the edges.

Girls Layout

This "girly" layout was created using the Hannah Montana cartridge for the title and the Cricut Alphabet cartridge for the doily.
To break up the busy patterned background, I added a doily on the left page under the photo mat.  The photo mat was accented with Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and a felt flower.
 
On the right hand page, I used the Pointed Flower EK Success border punch on the top and bottom of the large mat.  A bling sticker was added to each of the flowers.
The mat was finished off with some polka dot ribbon, felt flowers and a sentiment sticker.  The title was cut twice with foam pop dots between the two layers for added dimension.  A glittered flourish sticker was added to the title with some more felt flowers.
A large hand cut flag was added to the page along with some more ribbon and a sentiment sticker.

Dress Form Card

For my card, I used the "Life's A Stitch" stamp set from Docerela Creations to stamp the dress form.  The dress form tag was wrapped with Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine and accented with some pearl stickers.
The background was embossed with the Chevron Cuttlebug embossing folder which coordinates perfectly with the patterned paper.  I added a small plastic flower with a bling center to finish off my card.

Good Times Layout

Today is my turn over on the Trendy Twine blog and I am sharing a layout which was created using three different cartridges, Phrases for the "good times" title, Carousel for the merry-go-round and ticket booth and Cheerful Seasons for the "fun" tag.
I used a vibrant color scheme to reflect the bright colors of the pictures taken at an amusement park.
The title was added to a large hand cut flag to give it some definition.  I added some Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine to the title which is on sale this month.
A small ticket from my stash was added to the front of the ticket booth and finished off with a twine bow and some bling.
The "laughter" metal tag was adhered to a handcut flag.  The merry-go-round was also embellished to coordinate with the ticket booth along with some Stickles.
Remember to stop by the store to check out all of the fabulous twine colors featured this month!

Docerela Creations Life's A Stitch Release and Challenge

Today is challenge day over at Docerela Creations and we are showcasing the "Life's A Stitch" stamp set.  This is a brand new stamp set being released today.
Our challenge today is to incorporate faux or real stitching into your project.  For my card, I used the spools and sentiment from the stamp set.  
I wrapped different colors of Trendy Twine around the spools and added it around the card to create a frame for the sentiment.  The sentiment was stamped on a punched tag and I used my white gel pen to add faux stitching around the edges.
To check out the new stamps, please stop by the stamp shop.  Stop by to check out projects from the entire team and come link up your creations for our challenge!

Happy Father's Day Card

Today I have a fun card to share which I scraplifted from Pinterest.  Here is the link to the original card.   I used the Elegant Edges cartridge for my mat, the Billionaire Lite cartridge for the bow tie and the Mustaches and Glasses Digital cartridge for the mustache and glasses.
I added a printed sentiment on a hand cut flag and a small bow made from Berry Red Trendy Twine. The finishing touch was a small heart punched from a Martha Stewart border punch.

Graduation Card

My daughter is graduating from high school this week and this is the card I made for her.  The graduate was cut from Paper Doll Teen Scene and the "2013" was cut from Don Juan.  I used the Peachy Keen Princess Faces Stamp Set for the face with some chalk for the cheeks.  Some silver Stickles were added to the shoes and to create a necklace.
The tassel was created with Holly Trendy Twine and the rolled up diploma was also tied with the same twine.  I added a paper clip with a hand cut tag and stamped an "A+" from Docerela Stamps.
