Take A Hike

Did you know it’s National “Take A Hike” day?  This time of year a walk in the woods is a feast for the eyes.  The colorful foliage in every shade you can imagine looks amazing!  If you’re lucky you might just catch a glimpse of some wildlife too!

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 […]

Quick & Easy Garden Markers

Hello!  It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD and today I wanted to share these quick & easy (& cute!) garden markers with you.  I started by taking some craft sticks and snipping one end to a point with some heavy duty scissors. (Please don’t try this with your standard pair – it will surely throw them out of whack.) Once I had the points completed,  I got out my stamps and ink. I stamped each stick with a single large letter (for example: ‘r’ for rosemary), but you could easily stamp a whole […]

Happy Easter

    Happy Easter: I love making treats for special holidays and am excited about how these Rice Krispie treat pops came out and how cute they look with twine that matches the sprinkles that I put in the batter.  Twine from The Twinery just makes everything that much more special and oh so gorgeous.     Have a great weekend and it if you celebrate it, an awesome Easter.  Be sure to stop by The Twinery store to get some lovely twine for all your spring projects.
