Lemon Peppermints Sure are Sweet

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by. Today I am fortunate to be sharing my third project as the September Guest Designer for Trendy Twine. The Lemon Peppermint sure has been an awesome color combination...a little sweetness with a touch of spice.  Which do you prefer? Me? I am all about the lemons!

Since this month's theme is "Designer's Choice" I have been having fun (along with ALL the other Trendy Twine designers) showcasing a variety of ways you can use the twine.

I created a 3D window treat box with my Cameo.  The window has been covered with a piece of clear acetate and Lemonhead candies are sealed in a 3 x 4 zipped baggie. The scalloped top is  tied closed with yellow satin ribbon and then topped with a red button and a Trendy Twine bow. Sweet was cut in yellow and white card stock.

The MFT Gerber Daisies were cut with my Cuttlebug and the center of each flower consist of Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine swirled around into circles. A little bit of liquid glue holds them in place nicely.

Be sure to get your Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine today!

You can find this great twine color along with many more by visiting the Annie's Paper Boutique store

We are Mint to Be at Trendy Twine

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing my second project as the September Guest Designer for Trendy Twine. I have enjoyed using this month's fabulous twine...Lemon Peppermint. What an awesome color combination!

The assigned theme is Designer's Choice, which means we can create anything! Last week I said I was going to use the peppermint portion of the twine since I already used the lemon, and I did! 

First, I covered the white lid with you two layers of cardstock (I used the Picot Edge Circle Spellbinder die) and I weaved the twine all the way around. Red gems were added in between. The stamped sentiment is by My Favorite Things ~ Candy Jar Companion stamp set.

I used my bow maker to create a triple loop bow. 

I wrapped/adhered the twine all the way around the lid using adhesive tape.

Be sure to get your Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine today!

September Challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables starts today, and remember there is a free file every day! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Month's Challenge is...
Travel

Here is my Design Team project...
My daughter likes to receive mail while she is at college; therefore, I made her a care package with a few surprises. I created a postcard using a Miss Kate Cuttables file and now I can write her a personal note. I didn't want the back side to be blank, so I added another MKC travel file.

You can use any color combination for your postcard.



Choose any design for the back so it isn't blank.


Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Travel" challenge. The other design team members are definitely ready to go traveling around the world.  Be sure to check out ALL the variety!

Thanks for stopping by!

September's Trendy Twine Guest Designer

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing my first project as the September Guest Designer for Trendy Twine. I am THRILLED to have this opportunity to showcase this month's fabulous twine...Lemon Peppermint. What an awesome color combination!

The assigned theme is Designer's Choice, which means the possibilities are endless! I decided to use the lemon portion of the twine... next time I'll go with the peppermint.

I created a tag for my  Bath and Body Works Lemon scented shower gel. The cute lemon should make your lips curl up into a smile. 

I used the Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine for the little lemon's bows and to add a pop of color to the lid's bow.

Be sure to get your Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine today!

Hello Everyone!

Wow! Hard to believe it has been almost two months since my last post. I haven't spent too much time at my crafting table, but I have been busy with creating school projects, helping my daughter with college designs, and planning lessons each day. I am SUPER happy to finally be able to turn on my machine, pull out my papers, and CREATE!

Today is my day to post at Miss Kate Cuttables. Before I share my design team project,  I want to remind you there is a free file that you can download every day. YES! Every day a new and different one. Be sure to get yours today!

Here is my Design Team project...
A co-worker asked me to make a birthday card for a little man turning one. I thought this teddy would be darling for him. The stamped sentiment is by Cardz TV.

 I used the following Miss Kate Cuttables files...Teddy Bear and Hippo Holding Balloons.
   


I used the Die Cuttin' Diva's sketch from earlier this week. I sure have missed a lot of sketches! Looking forward to finding more!

The stitched circle die is by My Favorite Things. The bow was cut with a Waffle Flower die. I cut the 1 on my Cameo.

A Little Note from an Ant

Happy Friday! 

Earlier this week I had a student come over for some crafting time. Throughout the school year we would chat about projects and she was curious to learn more, so I spoke with her mom and said I would love to show her some techniques. I let her explore with water colors and distress inks. We had a great time!

This background is what I had created when I showed her how to do blending with distress inks. I actually had started with the green on the top and then decided if I rotated it I could make a night sky.

The ant with apple is by Miss Kate Cuttables. He is popped up along with the white stars on foam dots. The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps ~ More Mini Messages and glitter silver skittles by Carri in the other lower corner.

I added Wink of Stella clear glitter to create a sparkle on my stars.
Be sure to stop by Die Cuttin' Diva for this week's challenge...ant/picnic. You still have timr to join the challenge. We have an awesome sponsor too!

This week sure did fly by! Hope you enjoy the weekend!

July Challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone!

I am running a little late this morning...I have been on this fitness kick for the past week. I have been walking, riding my bike, researching  infused waters and foods high in alkalinity (versus acidic foods). That sure takes up some extra time, but it will be worth it to be healthy! I am motivated to lose a few pounds before heading back to school.

Today I also want to  share the new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables...remember a free file everyday!

This Month's Challenge is...
Summertime

Here is my Design Team project...
I was thinking about water to help stay cool since the temperature has been near 100 degrees everyday. What could be better than swimming in a pool!


The stamped sentiment is by Docerela Creations ~ Summertime stamp set.
Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Summertime" challenge. The other design team members  sure are enjoying summer too. Be sure to check out ALL the variety!
