So Happy For You

Happy Hump Day everyone, today is Hump Day at Timeless Twine and for todays challenge I needed to make a project using the word Happy. Yellow makes me very Happy which is probably why it's my favorite color.

So for todays project I made a sweet yellow basket, filled with yummy caramels (also my favorite) sitting in little white baggies. I did use the Orange Licorice twine from Timeless Twine and the Happy Days stamps set, along with doilies and paper bags from Bella Creationz

I love how the doilies added gave it a nice feminine feel and I have to say, I never thought I could find so many uses for twine as I do now, it adds just the perfect touch to any project.

The svg file for this basket is from the Silhouette store, design #25538. Additional supplies used will be listed below!

Enjoy...

Bee Birthday Bear Card

Hey everyone, hope you are all staying bundled up and warm with all of this breaking record cold weather most of us are getting...so ready for some warm weather.

For today I'll be sharing with you a birthday bee card I made using Cardz TV Stamp sets "Going Buggy" and "Beary Sweet". The bear is from the Teddy Bear Parade Cricut cartridge. I used papers from Simple Stories "Summer Fresh" and Pebbles "Garden Party". The gemstones are from Paper Studio.

Be sure and stop by the Cardz TV Gallery for additional inspiration from the design team.

Enjoy...






Have a Great Day!!!

Strawberry Cupcake Hot Air Balloon

Hi guys, here with another Timeless Twine project, for today I decided to make this fun and bright hot air balloon. Today is Technique Tuesdays, so I will give a quick tutorial on how I added the "Strawberry Cupcake" twine to the hot air balloon.

I did purchase the svg kit "High Skies" from SVGCuts.com, on there you will find a video by Mary on how you can construct the hot air balloon. I also have another hot air balloon that I will be sharing with you on March 4th, that one is more towards Steam Punk theme and believe it or not, I have requests for more.

There are some many creative ways you can use this file, for a child's room, party d├ęcor and so on, the ideas are endless... it really is a lot of fun to play with.

Enjoy...

Grandma's Secret Garden

Here is my next project for Party Time Tuesdays! This months sponsor is from Crafter's Companion, so be sure to join in on this months challenge, "Anything Goes". 

I've been wanting to make a memory box, for those special treasures from Grandma to my kids and from my mom to me, things that meant the world to us... the boys baby bracelets that she had engraved, my 1st and very special gold necklace that she worked so hard to get, pictures with her beautiful smile... these are just to name a few!

It's been 3 years, but I still miss my mom each and every day, not a day goes by that I don't think of her kind and gentle way! I love that now I can easily reminisce through so many little treasures that bring back so many wonderful memories. This project was definitely made with so much love!!!

For complete details please see the You Tube video below!

"The
Secret Garden
was what Mary called it...She liked the name,
and she liked still more
the feeling that when
it's beautiful old walls
shut her in...
It seemed almost like
being shut out of the world
in some fairy place."

Valentine's Day Drink and Cookies

Hi everyone, here's my next project for Cardz TV Gallery. I have been wanting to use these little milk bottles that I found at Michaels a while back with some colored straws. 

I think it would be super cute and adorable to give to a precious little girl. You can add pink lemonade for those who don't like milk or Strawberry milk for those who do, either way would be great with some cookies.

I used Cardz TV Stamps "Picture This" and "Sugar Rush". I also decorated the bottle with some Timeless Twine "Strawberry Cupcake" and Bella Creationz sequins "Cleary Beloved".

Enjoy...

 

 
 
Have a great day!!!
