Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day!  It’s Tobi here and I’m sharing my favourite Mother’s Day card I made this year. I made a lot of cards this year for my colleagues and friends to send home to their Mommas and it was fun to play around with pretty floral designs and colours.      I feel like Mother’s day cards are easy… Flower stamp (Avery Elle), colour it up (watercolours are so on fleek right now), and some pretty accents like our delicious twine!      I hope you have a great day with your Moms and/or celebrating […]

Getting a Head-Start!

Hi there, it’s Tobi here today with a Mother’s Day card! Why, you might ask?

Easter Treat Bags

Hi there! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD. Easter is almost here and I just love to celebrate such a joy-filled holiday.    In our family we try to remember that Easter isn’t about eggs, bunnies, or candy, but about the fact that our Lord was raised to life and that He lives! (And we are certainly thankful that He gave us eggs, bunnies, and candy to enjoy.) These decorated bags are a simple reminder – and as a bonus they hold a little treat. Each treat bag is topped with a paper doily […]

Machine Cording with Twinery Twine

Couching is an embroidery technique in which yarn or other materials are laid across the surface of the ground fabric and fastened in place with small stitches of the same or a different yarn. You can couch down Twinery twine the good old fashioned way, or you can get a handy little cording foot for your machine and sew away! I made a few fun St. Patricks day themed bar towels and will share with you some tips and tricks on making your own.  Supplies: Twinery Twine Cording Foot for your sewing machine Thread Disappearing Ink […]
