Timeless Twine Wrappings

I'm up over at the Timeless Twine blog today.  In the first part of this month, we were asked to create projects that are inspired by a bright orange and yellow flowered photo.  I love creating with this palette and decided to wrap a present using it and some fun Lemonade Yellow Timeless Twine:



How fun is it to give a simple gift wrapped with love.  I had won a WRMK box maker at a crop a couple months ago, so the box itself was easy.  Then, I wrapped it in twine and topped it with a Heartfelt Creations flower, a button and yes, some more Timeless Twine.

Do you do any special wrapping for your presents?  Be sure to check out the Bella Creationz/Timeless Twine shop for all your gift giving needs!

Craftily yours,

Happy Wishes

Happy Friday!  Happy Friends With Flair!  Today's card is also shared over at the 3 Girl JAM blog.  One of my online crafty buds did a really cool flower canvas with gelatos.  I hadn't jumped on the gelato bus, but I wanted to do one of those canvases, so I bought a pack.  (Thanks, Paula, for the inspiration!  I haven't made a canvas yet, but I'm going to!)

I used them first to create a couple cards to get a feel for them.  This card uses the Unity Stamp Company August 2014 Sentiment Kit, Wish with your Heart.  It also uses 3 Girl JAM Grey Crinkle ribbon from the LG Bundle and Mint from the Tie Dye 3 Bundle.  I love that the grey matches the embossing.  Everything is so shiny :)



If you love 3 Girl JAM ribbon as much as I do, this month, you can add the Sunny Meadows Bundle to your 3 Girl JAM order for JUST $1 by entering coupon code JUNE!  That's a fabulous deal!  OR you can save 10% off your whole purchase with savings code KN10!  Be sure to check out the 3 Girl JAM Store to see all the latest goodies!

Hope all you Unity peeps enjoy your weekend!

Craftily yours,

We Salute YOU!

This month, over at Timeless Twine / Bella Creationz, we are celebrating summer with Firecracker (Aqua and Red) Timeless Twine!  One of my favorite days of the summer is July 4, so I decided to focus on it and make this card for my son.  He is proudly serving in the U.S. Army, and I am super proud of him!


The paper is from my stash pile.  I stamped the image and dog-tags from a CTMH stamp set a dear friend sent me and colored up the background with my new Gelatos.  The star and red sequins are from Bella Creationz! They were in a previous kit, but there are lots of great options for pretty sequins in the store!

Craftily yours,

Karen

Crazy Congrats Bird

I'm up on the Timeless Twine blog today with this fun graduation card for my friend's son.  I decided to make him this CAS card with the Tim Holtz Crazy bird.  I love the look on the bird's face, and imaging this must be how a newly minted adult might feel!



That gorgeous twine is Aqua Blue and Red (Firecracker) Timeless Twine, and I used some pretty Bella Creationz Sequins.  These sequins were part of a kit sold about a year ago, but there are oodles of fun sequins in the Bella Creationz Store.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have you "liked" Timeless Twine on Facebook yet?  You should, so you stay up on all the lovely twine-tastic goodness....

Craftily yours,

Karen
