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...

Keep Calm and Jingle On - Tag

Hello my creative friends, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm here today with another DT project for Cardz TV. I love shaker cards, so I figured why not do a shaker tag. I used Cardz TV Stamps "Naughty or Nice" for the sentiment, which I so love. I used a Tim Holtz die for the tag, Spellbinders label dies for around the window and covered it in silver embossing powder and silver glitter.

I went to Michaels and was lucky enough to find some beautiful 12x12 paper pads in silver and white and another in gold and white, I also found some in 6x6, so needless to say, I used some off those papers for this project. I added some silver bells, silver snowflake stickers and white chiffon ribbon, I also added some sequins from Bella Creationz  and "Graphite Gray" Timeless Twine.

Please head over to Cardz TV Stamps for newly released stamp sets!

Enjoy...

Christmas "Merry Season" ATC

Hello my creative friends, I have a Christmas ATC " artist trading card"  that I would like to share. This was made for swap I was in and I actually made 12. I had so much fun creating this, especially because it's for Christmas, another one of my favorite holidays.

I used Tim Holtz inks, wreath die and embossing folder. I fussy cut the scroll from G45's "A Christmas Carol" paper pad, I added a Prima flower and I used the Martha Stewart punch for the branches/twigs.

"A right good time to you and yours...This fair and merry Season."

Enjoy...



Have a wonderful holiday season!!!

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.

Enjoy...

Have a safe holiday!!!

Hi everyone, glad you could stop by and check out my next DT project for Cardz TV. I've been a bit under the weather, so this will be a rather quick post, so I apologize. 

I used the Cardz TV "Thankful for You" stamp set for both sentiments, "Solid Orange" Timeless Twine, buttons and 3d stickers. Please stop by Cardz TV and get more inspiration from our Design Team.

Enjoy...

"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.

Enjoy...


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

Pumpkin Goodness in a Mason Jar

Hello there, here is my next DT project for Cardz TV. I love searching through Pinterest, especially for the holidays, in my search I found this No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake, which is delish!!! Clicking it will take you right to her site for the recipe. These will be perfect little desserts for our Thanksgiving dinner.

I used Cardz TV stamp set "Fall Fun" for the pumpkin and the sentiment. Love that little pumpkin in this stamp set, it was so much fun to color in, using Copic markers and the Wink of Stella glitter pen. I cut out a green leaf to put behind it, added a green button with some "Olive Green" Timeless Twine. I put some orange jute ribbon on top of some ivory trim and wrapped it around a small mason jar.

These can be used with many different kinds of goodies, it's whatever your heart desires!

Enjoy...

Sweet Harvest Mason Jar

Hi there, welcome back for another DT project for Timeless Twine. Here is a cute mason jar that's perfect for the "harvest" time of year. I used the "Autumn Splendor" twine around the lid, pretty papers from Simple Stories "Pumpkin Spice" paper pack and enamel dots.

The svg file can be found in the Silhouette store, design# 65656. The lid is meant for fabric, but I decided to use paper instead...you will have to wet the paper until it becomes soft, so it can easily bend around the lid top, gently tie it, then let it dry. Fabric is much easier, but I really wanted to use the pattern from the paper.  

Enjoy...



I put a tea light inside, but it can be filled with anything... something scented like pot pourri or something sweet to eat, like cookies!

Halloween Treat Boxes

Hi there, welcome back for another DT project I made for Cardz TV. I made some fun Halloween treat boxes and I used Cardz TV stamp sets"Spooky Sayings" and "Trick or Treat". I liked adding the zombie girl to the tombstone treat box, for a little extra creative fun.

The svg files that were used are from the Silhouette store... Myra Mains Tombstone - design#47686, the Zombie Girl - design# 47396 and the BOO treat box - design# 67334. I put foam tape behind the BOO and added some "Olive Green" Timeless Twine. I heat embossed both sentiments, one in white and the other in black.

So looking forward to HALLOWEEN!!!

Enjoy...
