I just love how easy it is to put a few stickers and twine on my project for a quick gift.
Have a great day and don’t forget to check out all of the projects this week on The Twinery blog for lots of sticker and twine inspiration!
Anita here with a Monday morning post highlighting The Twinery and SRM Press. They sent me this cute plastic box and an assortment of stickers which worked well with a new baby boy project. I had fun using their products with some yummy, soft The Twinery to create this set.
This week we’ve been showing apple themed projects . You can’t help but think of Fall when you hear the word “apples” here in the Midwest. It’s harvest time! We’re starting to see the local farm stands open displaying corn stalks, pumpkins, colorful Indian corn, and an array of gourds in every size and shape. I’m always excited to see bushels of apples! The baskets are filled to overflowing – green Granny Smith, red McIntosh, and Yellow Golden Delicious. They smell amazing too! Fall also means back to school. I can picture a row of apples on teacher’s desk – little gifts of appreciation or to maybe to ask forgiveness for a little rambunctiousness? I know teacher has her hands full and a note of appreciation is always welcome. This card is for a special teacher – she get’s an A+ for going the extra mile! My favorite embellishment is always some Twinery Twine! I wrapped Charcoal Twine around my card several times and finished with a little bow. The black matches the stamped alphabet , and is strong enough to hold it’s own against the bright colors of my design. I incorporated lots of school related items.. the alphabet die cut background, and gosh.. do you remember how good a gold star on your paper made you feel? LOL! A little bit of twine just seems to make everything a little extra special! What will you make with yours today?

Hello everyone!! This is Amy here to share a fun mini card set I created with an apple theme. It is definitely apple season around here. Our trees are sagging with the weight of the apples and are about ready to be picked. We will be getting them harvested over the next couple of weeks and preserving most of them. I created this mini card set so that I could give them away to my kiddos and hubby as little notes in their bags or other ways….just to let them know that I love them.
These cards are stamped from the first Unity stamp set I bought (many moons ago) and then colored with my Copic markers. I added some yummy Peapod bakers twine around the bottom edge and the apples are adhered with foam adhesive. Here is a closer look at the cards…..
These cards measure 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches.
Here is a peek at the bakers twine I used today:
So, do you have a special way to let your loved ones know that you are thinking about them?
Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day. Yes, I am serious that today is set aside for those of you who would like to get their pirate groove on. I made this adorable box with a Silhouette cut file and the ARRR banner as well. I used some matching twine from The Twinery to accent my banner.
