You Make My Heart Flutter

Hi Everyone!

It Trendy Twine Tuesday and it's my day to share a project!

So here it is

I cut this butterfly with a Silhouette Studio File. I used a glue dot runner on the wings and then wrapped the twine from the outside in. For the big wing I used Cotton Candy Twine and the smaller one I used Sky Twine. I stamped a cute Peachy Keen Face on it and finished off the card with a stamp from the new Bug-a-Boo set from Jaded Blossom.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

These new set are amazing! Right?! You can head over to the Jaded Blossom store and get the new release package for $53.99(normally $59.99)

I used the Make a Wish set for this card. This cute puppy is cut from a Treasure Box Designs File. I stamped one of the candles on his collar tag and colored it with some glaze pens.

My second project makes me laugh. I found these bug candies at the store and had to use them with the new Bug-a-Boo set. I took 2 of the bees and attached them to a Jaded Blossom Straw. Added a little bow and a tag.

Cute Seed Packet

Hi Everyone!

Time for another Jaded Blossom Sneak!!!!!

So cute right!?!  I thought this was a cute idea, because you could actually put seeds in there, or some small candy or a gift card. 

I used a Treasure Box Designs file for the flower and the seed packet is from the Silhouette store.  I used some kraft paper and Echo Park Dots and Stripes. Then I finished it off with some Twisted Lime Trendy Twine!

Come back tomorrow for another sneak peek!

Pirate Party!!!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Just wanted to share all the stuff I made for my Son's 2nd Birthday Party.

Jake and The Neverland Pirates is one of my Son's favorite shows. If you haven't seen the invites I made for the party you can check those out HERE.

Sorry ahead of time for all the pics.

So here is the food table. I have close ups of most of it.

I made the cake pops and cupcake wrappers. My Mom made the Skull Veggie Pizza.

I cut both of the wrappers with files from the Silhouette store.

The cake pops were fun to make(I made 50 of them) and the Jake was clip art I print and cut with my Cameo.

Here's a close up of the pizza my Mom made. How cool is that!!!

Here's the banner I made with clip art and some Silhouette files.

This is a close up I took when I first made the banner, so you can see more detail.

Here's the pirate ship my Mom made out of a watermelon!

Vince's cake(I wish I could say I made this but alas I did not LOL)

Mustache straws made with a Silhouette file and Jaded Blossom straws. Love these straws!!!

Center pieces I had scattered around the party. Each character was clip art that I print and cut with my Cameo. The containers were also cut with my Cameo and the characters are all connected to some more Jaded Blossom Straws.

I didn't make anything in this picture, I know I slacked and bought favor boxes. But I think this are looks really cute. I also had a spot right when you walked in the door with swords, eye patches, bandannas and other pirate gear for the kids to wear. Some how in all the craziness I did take a picture of it(uhh so mad about that).

And here is me and my favorite little birthday boy!!!!

I hope you enjoyed checking out all my party decor! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Trendy Tuesday~ Easter Bunny

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another Trendy Tuesday and today the Design Team is featuring the Cotton Candy Twine.
It's also the start of a new challenge where you must use twine and a bunny in your project.

So I made this little bunny out of twine-

I know it's hilarious!!! I sit here and laugh whenever I look at it. But it actually did take quite a bit of time to wrap a stryofoam egg with all that twine. I cut the ears and feet out of felt. So if you are in love with my project(lol) or just the twine you can go here to purchase your own.

Make sure you stop by the Trendy Twine Blog to see the rest of the Design Team's amazing projects and find out all the details of how to enter this month's challenge.

Easter Treats - Jaded Blossom Challenge

Hey Everyone!

It's time for another Jaded Blossom Challenge!
This month all you need to do is create some kind of an Easter treat and use a Jaded Blossom stamp set.

So here's my project-

The egg box is cut from a file on the Silhouette store with Bo Bunny paper.
I used the Flag Die and the Easter Treats stamp set for the tag and attached to the egg with some Trendy Twine. Then I filled the egg with some Easter grass and chocolate eggs.  

Make sure to stop by the Jaded Blossom Blog to check out the rest of the Design Team's project for the challenge and to find out how to enter. Plus entering the challenges is the only way for you to have a chance to be a guest designer for an entire month!
