A Happy Birthday Card Parade!

Hello Friends!

Wanna know what happens when I get a kit + some gorgeous Timeless Twine? I bust out a TON of cards. These are my happiest crafting sessions :)

 I'm loving the woodgrain paper and toothpicks!

 This is a glassine envelope.

 Using vellum is a great way to tone down busy pattern papers! I had to use my scraps on this one so the vellum was handy!


I used a Basic Grey collection with coordinating embellies for all the cards. The Strawberry Truffle Timeless Twine matches perfectly!

Hello Friends!

I seem to land on Holidays on Timeless Twine and I LOVE it! Today I have some Halloween cards. I don't really send out these cards, but I love the colors and playing around. Hope you enjoy! Stay safe!


*special shout out to my teamie and friend, Annette Allen!! She totally helped me with this design. We were at Archiver's and I think about 3 hours had past and I was still working on this!*


Love those little twine balls. Totally not my idea, I saw Annette Allen make twine gumdrop balls and about died they were so cute.
Stamps are from Lawn Fawn.


I just wanted to stamp candy and play with glitter! Stamps from Lawn Fawn.


Oh my word. I've these two glitter stickers in my Halloween box since the beginning of time and really didn't want to see them again, so I just played around and made little cards. Stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop.



Ditto from above, although no stamping. This was the last thing I made during this little Halloween crafting session with Annette.

And the gorgeous twine of course!

Stitching and Smiles :)

Hello Friends!

I finally purchased some Amy Tangerine stencils kits! And Strawberry Truffle Timeless Twine coordinates well with the Cut 'n Paste collection from American Crafts!

I don't have a sewing machine so I love, love, love hand stitching on cards. It's not the fastest, but just put on some crafty YouTube videos and stitch away!

Ta Ta for Now

Hello!

I have a card using Hero Arts + CAS-ual Friday Stamps on A Blog Named Hero!

For Hero Arts I used, "All Occasion Messages". (LOVE, freakin' LOVE that set!)
For CAS-ual Friday Stamps I used, "Casual Elegance". The leaves are so pretty and fun to color!

And yes, I spent about 900 years tying that bow ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Bold Thanks

Hiya!


One of my favorite collabs is with A Blog Named Hero and Lawn Fawn. I adore both blogs/company. Hero Arts + LF are probably about 80% of my crafting supplies! This should be of no surprise to anyone who is remotely aware of my blog (like YOU!).

Today I'm up to share what I made:

 I loved making this card. It came together so quick. This weekend I just wanted to color and stamp with some new crafty supplies that my friend Lisa sent me (*waves*). So I had the thank you done and then BAM! It all came together. It is so easy use Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn.

My supply list is over at A Blog Named Hero. The first two days of the collab, the DT cards are ah-mazing! Seriously, how did I get on this team with all that talent! So lucky!

Thanks for stopping by!
