Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Tag with Manila Pocket

Hello all and happy Thursday! I am sharing this fun tag with manila pocket on the Trendy Twine blog today.  It is perfect for adding to a scrapbook page, a present, or simply writing a note on the tag to give to someone special!
This view is of the tag inside the Manila Library Pocket.  I decorated the pocket with AC Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6x6 papers, Twisted Lime Trendy Twine, and Chocolate Truffle Sequins.
Here you can see the tag removed from the pocket.  Don't these look so sweet together?!
The tag was created with more of the same patterned paper, Chocolate Truffle Sequins, a Hello Fall Trendy Page DotTwisted Lime Trendy Twine, and a sentiment from the APB Choose Happy stamp set, stamped in brown ink.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

First Communion Invitations and Layout

Good Morning! Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog. The cards and layout I am sharing with you uses Raisin Boat's First Communion stamp set.  It is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone who is celebrating that occasion.  My son will be doing so in a couple weeks.
I created all the invitations using gray and white cardstock.  I designed the top white panel shape in my SCAL 4 software to fit the gorgeous border stamp in the First Communion stamp set.  I stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder on the outline.  The sentiment was also stamped in the same way.  For the chalice, I used the same ink, but embossed with white pearl embossing powder for a silver look.
I used the dotted border stamp with gray ink to add a little more visual interest to the paper underneath the sentiment banner.  All the white cardstock was popped up with foam tape.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine to embellish and also added a dot of Ice White Viva Pearl Pen above the chalice to look like the Holy Eucharist.  Here is a look at all the invitations I created!
I kept one of the cards not assembled so that I could make this layout page for my son's scrapbook.  I asked him how he wanted it to be, and this is the design and papers he chose!  All the elements are the same as the cards with the addition of patterned paper from DCWV's Silver Leaf stack, a white and silver doily, and a larger chalice stamp that is also from the First Communion stamp set.  That stamp and it's shadow were cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

DCD Guest Designer ~ Flower Challenge

Hello all!  I am guest designer over at the Die Cuttin' Diva's blog today.  They have a new challenge theme this week with the theme of flowers.  Remember, you need to use a die cut to enter their challenge!  Here is what I created for inspiration:
I used the SnapDragon Snippets Flower Chocolate Candy Card file to create this card and treat all rolled into one!  It has delicious Dove chocolates under the squares of paper.  Instead of the die cut sentiment that came with the file, I used Kat Scrappiness' Mom die cut to make this a Mother's Day card.  The papers I used are from DCWV's Watercolor Garden stack.  Adhesives include ATG, Scotch Tacky glue, and removable Glue Dots (for on the chocolates).
Remember to stop by the Die Cuttin' Diva's blog to check out the other DT inspiration and to enter their flower challenge!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

SumMore Fun Mood Board #24

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the SumMore Fun blog with a new mood board (you can see it at the bottom of this post). Here is what I created for inspiration!
The stamp set I used for this card is Raisin Boat's Spring Is In The Air.  The background was created by using the grass stamp in that set, turning it horizontally to stamp, then rotating it 180 degrees and stamping again, overlapping a bit with the first stamping.  Isn't that a fun way to create a background?  I used Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, Broken China, and Peeled Paint for the background.  The bunny and sentiment were stamped in black.  I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut the bunny and its shadow layer.  I added texture to the bunny's tail with a snow marker (you could also use liquid applique).  I embellished with pink ribbon and sequins.
Here is a look at the current mood board:
You can enter using the theme, pictures, or colors. Lots of choices! Head on over to the SumMore Fun blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s. We can't wait to see your take on the current Mood Board.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
