I am saddened to say that after much consideration I have decided to resign as design team member for Cardz TV. I'm truly honored to have been part of this team, the design team girls are super talented and super sweet and Mary has been so supportive, caring and just a wonderful friend to have over the years. I will miss being part of the team, but I will still continue to enjoy seeing all of their creative talents!!!

Now onto my project... I decided to make the A2 size "magazine" holder with a base. I have made some of these previously, but I like that this one has a base to hold all 4 together, which I used 1 for each season. The svg file is from the Silhouette store design# 123191. I do plan to make another one for birthdays, thank you, moments and just because.

"Fun in the Sun", "Thankful for You", "Snow Day" and "Merry Everything", the "Think Spring" is (Retired).

Happy Mother's Day Tag Card

Hello creative peeps, here today with another DT project for Cardz TV. For this weeks challenge we needed to make a 3d Mother's Day card. So for this project I decided to make a flower pot card with a flower tag, which is great card for any mom who may be a gardener too. You can easily insert a gift card and/or leave a hand written message behind the flower tag.

I found this cute svg file in the Silhouette store... Flower Pot Card Kit design# 8696. I used Cardz TV Stamps "Happy Days" and "It's All Good" for the sentiments. I added some buttons and twine and used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the flowers. This was a simple card to make, but lots of fun!

For more inspiration from our DT please visit Cardz TV and be sure to join this weeks challenge for a chance to win a Cardz TV stamp set.

Birthday Spinner Card

Hi there, I'm here today with a DT project for Cardz TV. In this challenge we needed to make a 3D birthday card, so I decided I would make a spinner card. I designed this svg file on my Silhouette.  I think it's a great way to have kids enjoy their birthday card, by making it interactive and fun to play with. Even I had fun playing with it, haha! :)

There are four different sentiments on this card. The Cardz TV Stamps I used are "Good Times", "Ticket Talk 2", "Picture This" and "It's All Good". I used the "Create a Critter" Cricut cartridge for the dinosaur and TH distress inks for the background. Be sure to stop by the Cardz TV  blog for more inspiration from Mary and our design team.

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.


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!!!

Happy Holidays

Hello my creative friends, I'm pleased to share with you my next DT project for Timeless Twine. I'm still feeling a bit run down from being sick, so I wanted to create a rather simple, but fun holiday card. I used "Cherry Red" Timeless Twine around the tree and star, and the "Holiday Sentiments" stamp set from Bella Creationz.

I'm not a huge sticker fan, but it comes in handy when your low on energy, so I used the two snowmen, bird and Christmas tree stickers from Echo Parks "Everybody Loves Christmas " page kit. This is from a much older kit (2010)... I thought it was time I finally put some of it to use, lol. 

I used MS snowflake punch, baby blue rhinestones and the swirl embossing folder for the snow. Inked the edges and faux stitched using a white gel pen. Lastly, I built up the layers with foam tape.

Have a safe holiday!!!

"So Thankful For You" Card

Hi everyone, hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Autumn season. I want to share with you a card I made as my DT project for Timeless Twine. I made this wonderful "Thankful For You" card for my husband. I used Autumn Splendor twine, punched holes to the seam of the card and added brown brads to resemble the binding on a book.

I used the Inkadinkado stamp set Filigree Fall #99403 and MCS  - Fall Border for the leaves, which unfortunately is no longer available. I added some burlap behind the leaves for more texture. I distressed and inked the edges, popped up the sentiment on foam tape and used the Wink of Stella glitter pen for some shimmer. I really love how this turned out.


I used Wink of Stella on the sentiment and the leaves.

Happy Harvest 3D Card

Hello everyone, glad be back on designing for Cardz TV, it was a nice little summer break we had. Today's challenge was to make a Fall 3d card. I used Thankful for You, Critter Captions and Basic Borders stamp sets. Mary has several new stamp sets, so be sure to stop by Cardz TV Stamps.

The pop out book card can be found in the Silhouette store, design# 64592 and the squirrel in the basket of acorns design# 50831. I used foam tape behind the squirrel and inked all of the edges. I also used orange glitter stickles for the sentiment "Fall' which was also popped up with foam tape as well.

Teen Boy Birthday Cards

Hi there, last time I was here with a DT post for Timeless Twine I had made some tags for a birthday and mentioned that I would be back with matching birthday cards. Well, as promised here are the teen birthday cards I made using the "Cape Cod" twine.
I have twin boys who will be 16 on Monday, I normally don't do matching of anything because they would probably throw a fit, lol. But this once I was "allowed" to make them matching cards and I'm sure I will be the last time I get to do this. (sad face)
I think this is a perfect masculine card, especially for teen boys. I love how it uses the acronym for the sentiment, which seems to be the in thing these days. I did add some metallic screw brads on each side and some metallic eyelets for the enclosure. I tied several layers of twine and frayed the edges to give it a more rugged look.
Wishing a Happy 16th Birthday to my boys... Andrew and Nicholas!!! <3 <3 <3

Once again the matching tags.

Have a great day!!!

Hello Summer Card

Hi everyone, today I'm here with a quick post for my DT project for Timeless Twine. This week I decided to make a card, I used "Hello Summer" stamp set from Bella Creationz and "Raspberry Lemonade" twine. The patterned papers and the bee's are from a couple of Echo Park's paper collections from the last year or two. 

The banner die set is from Craftin Desert Diva's, the pink banner is actually the smaller banner cut in half which I then adhered to the top and bottom backside of the larger die, to make it appear longer. I put foam tape behind most of the layers, cut out some photo corners and voila, the card is complete!

Hello Summer

Have a great day!!!

Up and Away, Hot Air Balloon Step Card

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a Hot Air Balloon card that I made as my Timeless Twine project.  I found the svg files in the Silhouette store - Hot Air Balloon #38875 and the center panel step card #39775. I used the "Firecracker" Timeless Twine and Cardz TV Stamps "Just Saying" for the sentiment inside.

I did some shading with some of TH ink pads, I added a couple of buttons and some foam tape, easy peasy!



Just Saying

Have a great day!!!
