Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello, it's my design day over at Trendy Twine and I have a project featuring Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine which is now on sale.
I will have a new nephew later on this year and I wanted to have something for his first picture.  I used the New Arrival cartridge for this single page 12x12 layout.  A Peachy Keen stamp was used for the baby's face and a small twine pom pom was added to his hat.
The twine was also wrapped around the photo mat as an accent and used on the journaling tag and safety pin.  A sentiment from the Craftin Desert Diva's Sugar & Spice stamp set was added to a hand cut flag.

Craftin Desert Diva's "Anything Goes" Linky Party

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party.  The theme for this linky party is anything goes.  For my project I created a double page 12x12 layout.
This layout was created using four cartridges; Holiday Cakes for the doily, Cricut Essentials for the flourishes, Gypsy Wanderings for the title and Flower Shoppe for all of the flowers.  All of the die cuts were inked on the edges.  The Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder was used on the flag and title for added dimension.  Coordinating twine bows made from Nautical Trendy Twine were used as an embellishment.
The flag was hand cut, embossed and embellished with some crinkle ribbon and flowers.  Each of the flowers were accented with Stickles for the center.
The layout was finished off with this hand cut tag which was punched with the Fiskars Scalloped Daisy Embossing punch on one end.  A coordinating button was added to the tag.
We have some awesome sponsors for this linky party:
Craftin Desert Diva's - one stamp set
Digital Delight by Louby Lou -$5 gift card
Too Cute By Jessica - $30 gift card
Stop by Craftin Desert Diva's to check out all of the inspiring projects from the design team and to join in on the linky party.

Craftin Desert Diva's Design Day

Hello it's my design day over at Craftin Desert Diva's and I have a fun project to share using the newly released The Great Outdoors stamp set.  This stamp set is perfect for those summer themed projects.  I used it to create this sweet card.
I debossed the background of my card using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder to create a graham cracker background.  The s'more was created by layering different colors of card stock to represent the graham cracker and chocolate.  I created the marshmallow by rounding the corners of a square, inking the edges and adding a Peachy Keen Face stamp.  The sentiment is from the newly released The Great Outdoors stamp set.
Here's a closer look at the entire stamp set, you can purchase the set here along with the rest of the August release.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Halloween Treat Bags

Hello, I didn't have the opportunity to share these treat bags on my blog from the Trendy Twine Happy Halloweenie Facebook hop over the weekend.  I used these fun cone bags from Annie's Paper Boutique and filled them with some popcorn for a healthier treat.
The bag topper was created with the Mini Monsters cartridge.  I used some Lime Licorice Trendy Twine for the witch hair.  I love the texture the twine adds.
The wooden scoop was attached by punching holes in the bag topper and tied with twine.  A tiny glue dot held the scoops in place.
If you didn't get a chance to hop with us, you can still head over to the Trendy Twine Facebook page to take a peek at all of the fun Halloween projects and join in the hop to win some amazing prizes.
