Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello!!  This is Amy here and today it is Thanksgiving in the USA.  It is my favorite holiday because of all the yummy food and that it also ushers in the Christmas season.  To celebrate, I made a new bookmark that reminds me to give thanks.  Take a look…. To create this bookmark, I water-colored some of the Art Play paintables from AdornIt.  I cut it out and then wrapped some Solid Marigold bakers twine around the top and accented it with a button.  Here is a closer look….. Here it is sticking out of […]

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?

Love, Joy, & Peace Tags

Hello!!  This is Amy here to share a little bit of Christmas in July with you today.  I made some tags with some non-traditional colors but with a wonderful theme and some yummy bakers twine from The Twinery….check them out…… I used my Cricut Explore to cut the tags and images and then some Buttercream and Shore bakers twine.  Here is a closer look at one of the tags….

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 […]

Apple Treat Can

Hello!!  This is Amy here to share a project that would be great to give out to teachers.  It is a quart sized paint can painted and decorated to look like an apple. I just used some red and green paint on this can and then added some washi tape, a tag, stem, and bakers twine to finish it off.  I created the tag with a die from HERE and my Cricut to cut out the apple.  The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.  For the stem, I just rolled some corrugated cardboard. inked it up […]
