Trendy Twine's Birthday Celebration

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Trendy Twine's Birthday Celebration Weekend.
This weekend is not only Lesley's Birthday but her Mom's Too.
She has asked several of us to be her Guest Designers to help with the Celebration.
Now if you're here from Dawn then you're in the right direction, but if you're just passing thru you may want to start at the Trendy Twine Blog because you don't want to miss out on the Blog Candy.
Here is what I made for Lesley's Mom:
I used the top note die from Stampin' Up, but used the negative outline to get the great shape. I used Blueberry Trendy Twine to accent the outline.
Some red polka dot washi tape behind my banner and cut out a banner using Close to my Heart Artiste cartridge. The stamp is also from CTMH.
I had some flowers in my stash that I inked up to make them less pink, more rusty. I hope she likes it!

A fun little ornament

How cute is this little ornament! I love how quick & easy it was to assemble. I cut 4 ornaments from CTMH artiste cart, folded them in half & used atg to stick them together!
I found this awesome feather yarn at the dollar store & used a Jaded Blossom stamp for the sentiment!
My 9 year old helped pick the paper & the sentiment, she saw how quick & easy it was, I see her making these for all of her friends!

Till next time,

Another card today

I wanted to use up a few scraps from my cards yesterday, so here's what I came up with...

I'm trying this from my new phone, hopefully it turns out ok!

Santa tags

I found some super cute tags on Pinterest - I thought I should make some too.

Here they are - I'll be donating them to my son's band program craft fair.

Super simple & cute!

November is here!

November for my house is a great month! We celebrate two birthdays - mine on the 7th & my son's on the 8th. He will be a teenager this year - gulp! With all the excitement of our own birthdays - I also get to celebrate my sister's on the 1st & niece's on the 29th. I also have a post coming this month with another birthday someone special to Trendy Twine! Lots of November birthdays!!

Before popping my sister's card in the mail last week - I totally forgot to take a picture :( 
I made her a card with a doily dress - it was really cute & I plan to make another one, one day, so I will post a pic once I remake the card!

My hubby came home with my bday present on the 1st - yea almost a week early - but I'll take it. He bought me the new iPhone 5!! So I thought I'd take some pics today - wow so much better than my 3GS!! These pics aren't perfect - but I promise to try to get better! (I'm thinking I should make a light box)

Here are a couple Christmas cards I've been working on...

 I used some Peachy Keen winter faces for my snowmen.
Trendy Twine for the scarfs - Twisted Teal & Berries Jubilee
Martha Stewart glitter for the mitts & touque - so they would pop a little more.
Pink By Design sentiments

All of the cuts come from Winter Frolic Cricut Cart!

I had some extra paper cut - thought I should finish using it - so I went into my already assembled die cuts & found a baby Jesus & 2 leftover snowmen from my cards last year - man am I glad to have those peachy stamps, I think their faces are so much cuter!!

Hope you enjoyed these too!

Till next time,
