The Magic of Christmas

magic-of-christmas

Hi, it’s Tobi Crawford here with a very Christmasy card!  Can you believe the big day is only a couple of weeks away?? Even though I’m a fully-grown adult, I still excited for Christmas and part of that excitement is making cards with glitter, and twine and stamps!    I’ve been making some pretty interesting colour choices for my cards this year, but this one is going back to the basics: red and green (with a touch of blue..). It’s a pretty simple card to execute, but what I love most is the texture:  The trees […]

Fall Napkin Placecards

Ooooh…isn’t it getting beautiful outside? The leaves are changing colors and the fall weather is finally starting to break through the heat.   When I think of fall…I think of food. (Or maybe I just always think of food.)   And what is a good meal without some cute decor to spruce up the table? Today I wanted to share these cute napkin ties that double as placecards for a fall meal: As I was walking through a craft store, those giant wooden buttons just screamed at me to make something with them, and I […]

Cool Cat Treat Bag

It’s Tobi here, and today I’m sharing a little treat bag! It’s fun to switch up projects instead of cards-cards-cards. I find it boosts my creativity when I create “projects” and it inspires me to think out of the box.  This is a simple little treat bag that would be perfect for a teacher, cat-lover, or anyone who needs a kind word!    I punched holes right through the bag so the contents would stay in. The twines look so pretty!!     

Need a necklace? No problem!

Twine Necklace

Hi there! It’s Tifany here and it’s no secret that I love using twine. I use it for crafting, of course, but I also love to use it for quick and easy jewelry. (You can see some past jewelry projects I’ve done with twine here, here, here, and here.) I love using The Twinery’s twine for jewelry because it is so soft and lightweight, and it adds a great pop of color. Recently I was looking for a last minute addition to my outfit, so I simply grabbed my spool of Solid Mandarin twine and […]

Hi.

Hi. I’m so glad you are here!   It’s Tifany here and today I wanted to share this card featuring a few of my favorite things – mason jars and twine…and (stamped) flowers.  I love using The Twinery’s twine to jazz up real mason jars, and I wanted to give the same feel to this mason jar stamp. Rather than wrapping my twine around the entire card as I often do, I just pierced holes in the card around the rim of the stamped mason jar and threaded some Solid Lilac twine through the holes. I […]
