solid baker’s twine


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 […]

The Sweet Taste of Summer – Happy National Watermelon Day!

Happy National Watermelon Day!!  This is Amy here to share a fun watermelon card with you today.  Did you know that Watermelon is classified as a berry called a pepo and that it is 92% water?  You can also serve it up many ways like in smoothies, drinks, and even grilled.  I really like watermelon and had fun using it as a theme for my card today.  To make the fun watermelon on my card, I started out by using a die cut image from my Cricut Explore.  I then added some adhesive to the […]

Multi Strand Spine Bookmarks

Hi there! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD and if you’ve been around my blog lately, you know that one of my favorite “crafts” is Bible art/journaling. It seems like at any given time there are a couple of particular passages that are in the queue for future pages to be done, and this is a pretty way to mark those places.  These bookmarks are particularly useful for a large book like the Bible, but they can work for any book.  And even better…they aren’t just regular bookmarks – they can tuck right […]

Earth Week/Upcycled Notebooks

Hello! It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD. For Earth Week (and in the spirit of reducing, reusing, and recycling) I’ve got some quick & easy upcycled notebooks to share with you today.    I started by taking some empty boxes with fun, colorful designs and I cut them to a variety of sizes (making sure to have both a front and back of the same size for each notebook). Cereal boxes and snack boxes are a great to way get chipboard for a variety of crafting projects. I put lined notebook paper inside, but this is also […]
