9th Birthday Wishes

Hey There!

Don't fall over that you are seeing a post. I am not even sure if anyone is even going to stop by and see this ha!

I know it's been quiet, and honestly I have not stepped foot in my my craftroom since December. The projects you have seen as of late were created then and scheduled ahead.

I am in an intense accelerated program, and I have a commute in traffic each day. It leaves very little time for even my family, so you understand why it's been quiet around here. 

We had a snow day yesterday. I took a break from studying to make a card for my best friend's little girl. I needed a brain break. It felt so weird crafting again and trying to find my mojo again. Hands down I miss it!
I just used bits and pieces and this is what I came up with.  My starting point was the 9 and I just built the card around that. 
So if you're still with me reading, I appreciate it, and I appreciate you stopping by! I am sorry I have not been around to leave comments. We can't have our phones in class, so on breaks I do try and scroll through and catch some of your work. :-)))  

Inspiration was found at:

Inspired by#3 (Which is also featuring one of the sweetest designers in the business Jeanne Jachna)

Thank you again for stopping by.

Trendy Twine - Happy Valentine's Day Valentine's Day Skinny Candy Bags

Good Morning!

I am over on the Trendy Twine blog today! I made some Valentine Treats featuring Krafy Red Trendy Twine and Skinny Candy Bags.  My son handed these to his crossing guards. They really love getting these treats and appreciate them too.
I filled the bags with some M & M's. I created a layered tag and die-cut a heart in the center. I just went back and forth with the Krafy Red Trendy Twine behind the heart window.  It really does look amazing and makes your tags and treats extra special.  
I stamped a Valentine greeting in the lower right corner and added a few sequins for a touch of glam. I punched a hole through the bag to attach it to the top using more Krafy Red Trendy Twine and tied off in a bow.  
Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
Krafty Red Trendy Twine - Kraft & Red Bakers Twine 
25 Skinny Candy Bags - 1x8 Clear Bags

I hope you have a GREAT day, and thank you for stopping by!

Trendy Twine - Valentine Treat

Hello There!

Today I have a Valentine Treat I am sharing on the Trendy Twine Blog using Krafty Red Trendy Twine and Metal Rim Kraft Tags.
I created this using half an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock which I layered a piece of designer paper over then I created a pouch. I used a heart die-cut to create a window for my goodies to peek though. I outlined the heart with Krafty Red Trendy Twine.  
I had a scrap of corrugated cardboard that I used on the right side which gave some visual texture. Next I wrapped a length of red grosgrain ribbon around and tied off in a bow embellishing with a double bow of Krafty Red Trendy Twine.  I attached a Metal Rim Kraft Tag with a stamped image (PTI) to the center of the bow using a button and Krafty Red Trendy Twine. A white paper rose finished it off quite nicely. 
   Hope you have enjoyed this little treat!
