Trendy Twine

Hi Everyone - Today is my last post as guest designer over at Trendy Twine. I really enjoyed creating projects using their wonderful twine. Those of you who are regulars here (thanks by the way for following my crafty blog) know I create alot of shadow boxes. It all started about 3 years ago when I made one for my coworker. It has spread from there and I've probably made close to a 100 shadow boxes for family and friends. They really do make a perfect gift for a shower.

Here is one I created using Trendy Twine!

Pick up a frame at Joanns or Michaels. (I get the white ones from Joanns)
I start out by taking a peek at the baby registry online - that will give you a good idea of what the color scheme and theme is. Then start cutting your elements. 

Once you have everything cut add foam tape or pieces of foam core under the elements to give it dimension. Afterall it is a shadowbox so make some shadows. I added Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine to my project which was the perfect accent.

You can either hang this in the baby's room or purchase a holder at Joanns to display in the room.

I really enjoyed my time as the May guest designer ~ have a great Friday and long holiday weekend!

Summer Travels

My husband is a teacher and came home this week with a bunch of requests for teachers who are retiring. I always ask about their hobbies and he said his coworker Sharon is really looking forward to traveling. Well thanks to SVG Cuts I had the perfect project to make for her!

This little suitcase is from the latest SVG Cuts Kit ~ Summer Holiday SVG Kit.

It was really easy to put together and makes a perfect little gift holder. 
I used the Congrats from Five Minute Cards SVG Kit. I added some stitching and attached the luggage tag with Trendy Twine.

I also make some quick Thank You Cards for the Scout leaders. This time of the year I make alot of Thank you cards and this one is so easy and fun. It is from SVG Cuts ~ Five Minute Cards SVG Kit. I am loving the Authentique Papers - it is from the Carefree Line. I accented with some Trendy Twine and used by Epiphany Craft tool.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Hi There! I have a project to share using the wonderful Trendy Twine. I am the Guest Designer for the month of May. This month's challenge is posted on their  blog {CLICK HERE}.

It's a fun one - use the color kraft and Trendy Twine. Here is my project ~ A Happy Birthday Piece of Cake. I added the twine on my candle and added a bit to the button to accent.

Here's a look at the little box opened up - perfect for treats or even some crafty gifts, including Trendy Twine of course! PP is from Sweet Girl by Lori Whitlock, chipboard is from Heidi Swapp.

I used May’s Special ~ Tickled with Teal.

Hey - Hope you had a great National Scrapbooking Day yesterday! I hit the craft room and decided to play along with some challenges over on the Echo Park Blog.

First challenge was to make a Summer Time Card.
I used Echo Park's  Paradise Beach. The sentiment is from a digi kit I picked this past week for One Buck Wednesday called Birthday Boy.

The popsicle card is from the SVG Cuts latest  ~ Fruity Fiesta SVG Kit.

I used the Trendy Twine color of the month ~ Tickled with Teal. I used actual popsicle sticks.
