Fall Napkin Placecards

fall-napkin-namecards-6-wm

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
