Thanks a Latte

Thanks for checking out my blog today!


Trendy Twine - Guest Designer

Hey Everyone!! Happy Tuesday! I am very excited to be a guest designer for Trendy Twine today! I used the awesome Cherry Cupcake twine in my project :) 

So for my project I decided to create a little treat box for my hubby for Valentines day :) I cut the box and the background from Spring Holiday Cards. The heart is cut from Sweethearts and the stamp is from Jaded Blossom "Valentine Treats" stamp set. 

So as you can tell from the picture... twine curls, yay! Its soooo much cuter in person! To curl the twine I wrapped it tightly around wooden dowels and used clothes pins to secure it tight. I then put it in the oven for 25 minutes on 275. After the 25 minutes is up I took it out and let it cool and set for an additional 10 minutes. Then I gently slid the twine off the dowel. That easy! :) 

Do you want to win a twine sampler pack? 

All you have to do is comment on my blog, Trendy Twine's blog and make sure you are a follower of both blogs in order to win. :)

Have a Magical Birthday!

Hey Everyone! So for those of you who follow me on Facebook  know I just got a Cameo on Friday! 
First impression of the Cameo and Silhouette Studio... Amazing! I thought I was going to be so overwhelmed and would need tons to learn how to use it but really I just played around alittle but and I already feel pretty comfortable navigating it. I know there is still tons for me to learn but I'm happy for now! :) And the cameo cuts sooooo much smoother than the Cricut! Those little details are perfect. If I could cut my Disney cricut cartridges in the cameo I would actually use them! 

Anyways, I wanted to share with you my first card that I have created with the Cameo and Silhouette Studio! Everything was cut from the cameo except the star and the little flag the wording is on. :) 

Not bad for my first Cameo card if I don't say so myself :P

Hugs & Kisses

Happy Monday Everyone!! If your looking for the Jaded Blossom blog hop click here.. 

Over the next few days I wanted to show everyone that Jaded Blossom stamps, although they are more geared towards favors etc, can be used on cards! 

Here I used "Valentine Treats" stamp set for Hugs & Kisses on the balloons. The Elephant was cut from Birthday Bash and the heart balloons were cut from Create a Critter. I then used Valentine Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine for the strings of the balloon. 

I am also submitting this card into the Trendy Twine monthly challenge. This months challenge was to create a project for your Valentine and incorporate Trendy Twine. 

Make sure to check back tomorrow and wednesday because I will have two more cards using Jaded Blossom stamps!
