Special Delivery

I am on Timeless Twine today and I wanted to make something that focused more on the twine than anything so I made these cute little using that fork method I shared in a video. They are super easy to make and I love the way they turn out. I think it makes a super fun bow for the presents. My photo is not the best today. Its super gloomy here and even though I have a photo tent I just couldn't get it right. I am planning on investing in a better setup for when I have days where no matter how much I try the lighting just stinks! Photo editing can only do so much sometimes. 

I used some sequins from Bella Creationz 
The twine I used was "Cherry Red", "Firecracker" and "Olive Green"

Fleece Navidad!

I am on Cardz TV Gallery blog today. Since the holidays are fast approaching my days seem to be getting shorter. Seems I have what feels like a half of a day to do anything lately. So I opted for a card today instead of a 3d project. I used the new "Christmas Critter Captions" . I used a silhouette image to make this silly yet cute sheep. I actually put it on an action wobble but you can't tell but its super cute!

I used some Timeless Twine Solid black twine to tie around it to give more texture to the card and an added pop. The green paper is from Echo Park it is one of my favorites! Its from the "This & That" collection. The rest of the paper is America Crafts textured cardstock.

GUESS what!!!! Mary is having a Customer Appreciation sale. It started yesterday but you have till Midnight tonight to grab them at an awesome price!!! So go...head over and get you some cute sentiment stamps!! Click here!

Guest Spot for My Craft Spot

Today I am on My Craft Spot continuing my guest spot for their October release. I made a cute little 3d fry box and dressed it up like a santa claus. I again didn't have any candy in the house so I decided it would be cute filled with sticky notes, flags etc. for a planner buddy.

I am really into the planner thing right now and all the cute sticky notes, page flags etc. and why not put those in a treat box for a friend!!

I used the adorable Tiny Tags Christmas and the Tiny Tags dies. LOVE them so much!!! I used a red ink to stamp the sentiment. Tied it with some Simply White twine from Timeless Twine. So simple but so cute!!

3d Christmas with My Craft Spot

Today I am joining in with My Craft Spot on a 3d Christmas Challenge. Be sure to stop over and join in as well. You could win a Gift Certificate to purchase some of Kimberly's awesome stamps. This release was full of wonderful sets and wonderful sentiments.

I decided I would make a 3d Christmas tree because the sentiments from O Holy Night were calling my name! I used a cut file from the silhouette store "3d Tree box" #36408. I didn't have any candy to put inside (can you believe that? That is a crime right there!) so I decided it would be a gift box to give some of my button flair away!

I used a tag that I had from the silhouette store and also the little scalloped round image to make spots for my sentiment.

Attached the little round scallop on the front of the box and attached the tag with some Simply white Twine from Timeless Twine.

Don't forget stop by My Craft Spot to check out all the great stamps sets she has and also join in on the challenge!

Planning and stamping

Today I am on Timeless Twine doing maybe what seems like not much but its the start of my planner I just got. I haven't wanted to write in it I am a bit of a hoarder and somewhat of a "preserver" I guess you would say. I love things in their new pristine condition but what is the point of a planner that I don't use. So I am wanting to start to decorate it a bit and although this doesn't look like much I have to get in my planner groove. I am very new to "decorating" a planner. I have always loved planners, I have always had several plus notebooks to jot my thoughts or ideas in. 

I keep several by my side all the time. While watching tv I may get an idea on a project or brainstorm and doodle/sketch what I am going to do. I also get ideas for what to make for new paperclips. 

So my dear friend who I adore more than I can put into words ordered me a Erin Condren for my birthday!!! So this beauty is getting a start. I am breaking her in slowly but I know once I get the initial start it will get easier. There is so much to get yet. Loads of washi is what I plan to get now. I would like to get the skinnies. 

But you can see with Bella Creationz new "PlanNERD" and "PlanNERD 2" sets she has thought of alot of the things us planners like to use and create a great stamp set. I love the little squiggly that I stamped on one of the bookmarks. The other bookmark has lines so I stamped the "Currently" on it so I could make a list of things that are going on right now I need to work on. 

The other stamp I am in love with is on set 2 and it is the stamp that you can write your project down on, date it is due and then checkoffs for all the social media sites so that you can keep track of where you shared it or what ones you still need to share on. I love that to death!!!

And then these cute little flags. I need to get some better inks to stamp colors with. I have alot of distress inks and I didn't care for the way they came out so I used a few of the CTMH pads I had.

I used the Autumn splendor twine to make some cute fringes for my bookmarks and then also added some to a paperclip to create a little decorative clip.

Autumn splendor is on sale this month so you should grab it. It is super cheap for a whole spool its only $4.50!

Grab the Plannerd stamp sets too while your at it. More stamp sets are in the shop and more coming so stay tuned for new releases!!!
