Triple loop Bows


Hey Papercrafters. Today is my Design Team Day over on the timeless Twine blog and I'm sharing a really cool tip on how I make my triple Loop twine bows

Here is the card that I made with this little Tip. I apologize in advance for the crappy picture. My Camera batteries haven't been lasting and seem to die after just 1-2 pictures. That's probably because I charge them for only like 5-10 minutes at a time because I'm impatient


 The Card is size standard A2 from Kraft Cardstock. I then added a scrap piece of white cardstock which I ran through my cuttlebug folder.   I use scraps of Bazzil Red and Blue Cardstock to add onto the card, cutting the large blue piece into a banner shape.

Today's post is going to be just a tip on how to recreate this style  twine bow on your own Projects.

Trust me it's alot easier than it looks

Cowboy Mustache!

Hey Friends, I just wanted to share another project I have created with Scrappy Moms Stamps newest Release "Blast from the past".

This is a super fun retro theme stamp set and is great for making Manly yet quirky fun cards.

just check out my project as an example


I just my Print and cameo to make a fun Print and Cut card. I used Lettering Delights Graphics and Silhouette software.  I stamped the mustache over and over on some kraft cardstock using my Crumb cake ink to make a pattern. This was a fun and easy card! I hope it inspires you.

PKS & Timeless Twine Design Team Day: I miss you card

Hey everyone

Today is my Design Team Day at Peachy Keen Stamps, and As well as Timeless Twine.
So I thought I would make a project featuring the cuteness of Both


This card is sized 3.75x 7

I colored Darren and Laura Lee sing my Prismacolor pencils/ Gamsol and cut them out.

Tip: for the African American Skin tones I used Prismacolor Pencils Sienna Brown, Dark Brown, Dark & Dark Umber

The pattern paper is cut at 3.5x 6.5

The sentiment I miss you, is stamped 3 times in Black Ink and then cut out using Pattern Papers. 

The twine heart was made using Liquid adhesive which I drew a thin line, and added a piece of twine.

Stitching lines down each side of the Card finish this project.

Timeless Twine Purple Passion Release!

Today I am sharing with you a project I made for the Timeless Twine Newest Release Purple Passion.

If you haven't tried timeless twine before, let me tell you it's fantastic. It's soft and the colors are vibrant, overall it's a fantastic quality.

Here my project that I made using the newest Timeless Twine Release.


 For this layout I was inspired by something similar that I saw in Scrapbooks Etc Magazine, but I decided to put my own spin on the project. Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut out a folder file that I had purchased forever ago, and altered the shape by welding a fancy shape as the tab.  Inside I decided to add all of my journaling and alot more pictures from her birthday party. .

I tied it closed using some Timeless Twine Purple Passion Twine and decorated the front using various stamps.I measured across the frong of the folder with my Tsquare and then cut out a Lori witlock studio file title and added it to the front of the folder.

 For the little banner I used my brayer and inked up a white scrap with some Daffodil delight ink, I inked it very haphazardly so it looked a little more patterned. I then stamped on the triangle banner stamp from peachy keen stamps and added the letters on each banner with my Doodlebug designs Alphabet Stamp.  I then threaded some timeless twine through the banner which I then secured with two tiny pieces of Target Brand Washi Tape.

To decorate the page I use some discontinued AC Pattern paper that I had in my stash and  added the reverse punched out with a scallop punch.  After I completly had assemebled the layout I went back in with my paper piercer and piercing mat and created a zig zag pattern.

This was a little time consuming but totally worth it. I love the way it came out. By the way stitching with Twine does use up alot. So I highly suggest if you are short on your stash that you DO NOT thread the needle like you would with regular sewing but rather use one knot at the end of a single string and then thread your darner needle and tape the other end to the twine using a tiny piece of tape.

I did not use that technique but used it on another card project I made just before this one. You can check out that project here

I hope you like this project it has alot going on but still came out very clean and simple looking
