Emily's Sweet 16 Blog Hop

Hello my creative friends, welcome to today's Blog Hop!! Thank you for joining us today as we celebrate Emily's recent Sweet 16th Birthday! We're so thankful you've joined us to celebrate the sixteenth birthday of a fun loving young lady.  She will be blessed by your participation, designs and comments.


For my project I created a Sweet 16 Mini Album, I thought it would be a great way for her to place her birthday photos and do some journaling. The tutorial on how to construct the album can be found on YouTube from My Sister's Scrapper. The stamped image of the girl is from Prima, I used Copic markers to color it in and for the tags, I used the MFT - Die-namics Stitched Tag die.

Hope Emily's day is filled with lots of love, fun and joy... 
Happy Birthday Emily!!!

Happy New Year... Card, Tag and More!

Hello my creative friends,  I have to say it's been an amazing year working with Stacy, Deb and the Design Team. As of today though, this will be my last post for Timeless Twine and Bella Creationz. I want to thank all of the girls for making this a fun loving year!!!  

Christmas will soon be here, but shortly after is New Year's Eve, which will be welcoming us into the New Year. For most of us, it's Party Time and in my case, I've been invited to one... so what better way to celebrate than to bring a wonderful personalized gift to your Hostess. I decided I would bring some Champaign, a gift bag with an "over the top" game to play and a fun shaker card.

Enjoy...


For the shaker card...
I used the "Holiday Sentiments" stamp set from Bella Creationz and from MFT the Die-namics pierced rectangle frames die. For the inside a combination gold sequins with mini micro beads and stars, some white flower soft for the snow and I embossed the background with a swirl embossing folder.


For the gift bag...
I used "Solid Black" Timeless Twine to hang the bells from the tag, from Bella Creationz I used a small tag that I covered with the gold metallic sticker sheet and a smaller tag that I heat embossed in black, for the hole I used a gold reinforcement sticker. The stamped sentiment is from the "Holiday Sentiments" stamp set. I also used a scalloped die, to cut the center of the smaller tag and added foam tape behind it.

For the final touch, I personalized the Champaign bottle with her last initial. To match the gift bag I used a gold metallic sticker sheet from Bella Creationz and  the center of the gold reinforcement stickers for the circles on the black cardstock and finally I had to add a huge metallic bow.


Looking forward to celebrating the New Year!!!

Cards for Christmas

Hello my creative friends, today I am sharing a card that I'm sending to a sweet little 5 year old girl named Safyre, who lost her father and siblings in a fire in 2013. She has one wish this Christmas and that's to get Christmas cards from around the world.

This story just touched my heart and I just had to share. I know this is a busy time of year, but I'm hoping you can find some time to put a little smile on her face by sending her a Christmas card.

Here's the link to the story...


This is just a reminder on how we should all count our blessings everyday...





Happy Holidays!!!

Merry Christmas Gift Box

Hello my creative friends, hope you are all enjoying a wonderful holiday season. Today I have a DT project for Cardz TV, I made this beautiful present box from MCS. I used CardzTV Stamps "Naughty or Nice" for the sentiment and from Timeless Twine the "Cherry Red" twine.

I love how beautiful this box is, the patterned paper is from G45's "A Christmas Carol", I used some red and white cardstock and a red glittery enamel dot for the bow.  You can make several of these in a snap, using any of your favorite papers. I made this one for Christmas, but this can be used for any occasion.

Enjoy...

Christmas Treat Bag

Hello my creative friends, happy to share with you my next DT project for Timeless Twine. I made this cute little Christmas treat bag, I plan on making several of these using different pattern papers, I thought it would be fun to hand out to my little nieces and nephews along with their Christmas gifts.

I used the "Cherry Red" Timeless Twine and the "Holiday Sentiments" stamp set from Bella Creationz. The "Christmas Tree Bag" is from the Silhouette store -design # 50964. I used some liquid pearls for the star and some red glittery dots. This project is super easy and super fun, which is great when making more than one.

Enjoy...
