Thanks So Much Pillowbox with The Twinery and SRM Stickers

Hello!!  Today I get to share a wonderful project over on The Twinery blog that features two of my favorite companies.....SRM Stickers and The Twinery!

For the base of my project, I used the Medium Kraft Pillow Box from SRM Stickers.   I added a little bit of ink around the edges of it and then added the pretty White Lace Doily over the top of it.  The sentiment is from the We've Got Your Sticker/Thanks.  The bakers twine that I used today is Strawberry and Honeydew.  I wrapped it around the pillow box and then tied it in a bow on the left side.

I cut the flower image on my Cricut Imagine.  I inked up the edges of the cuts a bit and then glued them onto the pillow box.

I think that this pillow box is a great way to give a treat to show some gratitude towards someone.  What would you fill it with?

Here is a look at the colors of bakers twine from The Twinery I used today....

Honeydew Strawberry 

I would really appreciate it if you would hop on over to the Twinery Blog and leave some feedback love for me over there, too.

Have a great day!

The Sweet Taste of Summer!

Hello everyone!!  It has been a while since my last post and I was hoping to get into more crafting this summer, but things have been crazy busy around here.  I did get this post up over on The Twinery blog yesterday and I wanted to share it here with you, too.  

First I die cut an image with my Cricut Explore and then added some adhesive over it and filled it in with some yummy bakers twine from The Twinery.  I used some yummy Solid Peapod, Solid Natural, and Solid Strawberry bakers twine on my card.  I glued the die cut seeds over the twine for a real watermelon look.  Here is a closer look at that wonderful watermelon.

I added some sticker stitches from SRM Stickers and the sentiment is stamped from an older (out of date and production) stamp set.

So, did you have some watermelon this week?  I would love it if you left a comment here and over on The Twinery blog would let me know that there was someone out there reading my posts.

July 4th Parade Layout

Well, hello there.....yes, I know I have been a stranger and I think that my craft supplies have taken it the hardest because they feel a bit neglected.  Well, they shouldn't anymore because I was able to get into my craft room this weekend and create something!!  And, it felt great!!

I created this fun layout for The Twinery blog - stitching with their solid bakers twine.  Check it out!

This is a layout of my kiddos at the local 4th of July parade....yes, yes, I know that the photos are a few years old, but hey, I was so into the moment the last time the parade was in town that I {gasp} forgot to take pictures.  Hopefully I won't forget this year.  I used my solid bakers twine on this layout for stitching around the star with the Solid Maraschino and also for the fireworks up in the upper right corner in Solid Midnight Blue and Solid Natural bakers twine.  Here is a closer look......

I used my Cricut for the die cut stars and the lettering.  This year we will have a fun packed day with parades, games, wagon rides, BBQ and fireworks.  How will you be celebrating the day?

Happy Mother's Day!!

Hello friends and Happy Mother's Day!!  I created this card the other day and posted it over on The Twinery blog, and I thought that today would be an excellent day to post it here.

I wrapped a square frame with some Buttercream bakers twine from The Twinery and then cut out the floral and flourish with my Cricut Explore.  The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.  This card measures about 4 1/2 inches square.  Here is a closer look at the wrapped twine.

It took me a little bit to wrap all the twine, but I just caught up on a show while I was wrapping it up.  To finish it off, I just added a bit of Stickles glitter glue to the center of the flower.

I hope that you are enjoying Mother's Day with the ones you love!!  Have a great day!!
