Trendy Twine - Congratulations

Happy Monday!  I have project to share over on the Trendy Twine blog featuring Pink Midnight Trendy Twine.  This twine is a gorgeous twist of pink, white and black and is one of my favorite color combinations.  I used the twine to accent my card.
To create my card, I started with Nested - Scalloped Stitched Rectangles from Gina Marie Designs and layered it with 4 different ovals cut from various dies.  The lace oval was accented with some pearl stickers.  I outlined the white oval with the Pink Midnight twine and added a bow at the top. A few layered flowers were added as accents.  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Cuddles and Kisses stamp set.
This gorgeous twine is available over at Annie's Paper Boutique!  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Thanks a BUZZ-illion!

Hello!  Today I have a shaker card to share which was created with a set of Gina Marie Design dies available here.  This set of dies gives you the possibility of 3 different cuts from each die.  The frame, nested hexagons and solid hexagons can all be cut with this one set of dies which makes it so versatile.
Other than using the hexagon dies to create my card, I stamped a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Gone Buggy (retired) stamp set.  I also added a tiny bee from my sticker stash and some GMD Nautical Ocean enamel dots which coordinated perfectly with my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a lovely day!

Oriental Trading - Stache Bash

Hello!  Today I am sharing a "stache bash" themed birthday using products from Oriental Trading. The masculine theme is perfect for all ages and can be found in the Birthday Party Supplies along with many other themes.  My son just celebrated his birthday so I am sharing some pictures of his birthday bash items.
To create my party decor, I gathered up my party ware and also a few basic scrapbooking supplies, some chevron paper straws and some plain cupcake picks.  I used my electronic die cutter and a couple of SVG files to cut out the party hat, scalloped circle and mustache in a variety of sizes.
I adhered all of items with the Glue Dots.  I used some coordinating paper to wrap the water bottle and added a scalloped circle and mustache for a fun element.
The black and white banner was also embellished with the mustache cut outs for a festive appearance.
The shot glasses were the perfect size for adding some treats available from the Candy store.  I tucked in a cupcake pick as a decorative element.  The mustache box was a fun addition to fill with more treats.
No birthday bash is complete without the yummy goodness of a triple fudge cake.  It was definitely a fan favorite.  Even the cupcake picks were used for scraping every last morsel of chocolate.
I hoped you enjoyed checking out my projects. These items are available in the Scrapbooking & Paper Crafting Store, the Craft Supplies Store, the Candy Store and from the Birthday Party Supplies all from Oriental Trading. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous 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.

DCWV Moment Maker Planner System

Happy Monday!  Today I have a planner spread to share in my DCWV Moment Maker Planner System.  I used the weekly planner page for my layout this week and wanted to share the pages before they get "inked up".
To create my pages, I used papers from the DCWV Rose Quartz stack.  The papers in this stack are absolutely gorgeous, however, the shades are so subtle that they are hard to photograph. I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the numbers for the dates and the title of the month.  A bit of coordinating washi tape and some die cut foliage were added as embellishments.
The planner clip was was created with a Spellbinders Coffee Cup die which I also used as an embellishment on my Monday.  I always need a tall cup of coffee to get through my Mondays.  Die cut scissors were added to my Saturday to memorialize National Scrapbooking Day.  The cut out page had the perfect inspiration quote which I clipped in my planner.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
