The Twinery & CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop

I am so excited about this blog hop because I love The Twinery and adore CardMaker Magazine.  I find such wonderful inspiration from both companies.  If you got to my blog without starting at the beginning of the hope, then you are going to want to start at the beginning at CardMaker's Blog.  I used my Silhouette to make this fun fall card and always love doing detail work with twine.  I used some fun yummy colors which you can see below and click on this link to take you to The Twinery store when you can get some for yourself.

Merry Christmas Card Set with Ewe-N-Me Printables

 I am starting to get into the Christmas spirit.  I love these Printable Hang Tag Victorian Santa Post Cards.  You can find them along with lots of other wonderful goodness in the Ewe-N-Me Printables Store.

I cut the post cards up and put stickles on the tree Santa is holding and on the holly.  I love old fashioned Santa's and the idea of giving someone a box full of creative goodness is so fun.  These cards print up so perfectly and there are 8 to a sheet so you can use them for so many different things.  I popped up the post card to give it more dimension next to the flowers.  Thanks so much for looking and have a great day.

Holiday Door Banners

 Made some holiday banners for a friend and made a set for me too.  I love using my Silhouette cut files and fabric to create the designs.  She loved them and I just need to finish my set now.

 I have been hoarding these Tessa Ann Collection buttons for a long time and am glad to have a chance to use them.  Aren't they cute.  My friend loves snowmen so loved this one.

Ho, ho ho, a fun Santa one.

and last but not least Tom Turkey for the month of November.  Have to get him up soon.

Ewe-N-Me Printables Give Thanks Pillow Box

I love to host the holidays and bring some fun and color as well as a treat to the guests at my table.  I printed this Give Thanks pillow box and used some stickers to embellish it as a place card for my mom.
I think that these will look so lovely on each person's plate.  I am going to fill them with some chocolate truffles as a sweet take home treat.  They print up so gorgeous and can be embellished in so many ways.

This awesome printable is called Give Thanks Printable Pillow Box   There are also so many wonderful new items in the store that you just have to pop on over for a visit.

25th and Pine by Basic Grey Table Runner

This was a fun one to sew.  Worked up so beautifully and so quickly.  I love when they take an awesome paper line and create fabric out of it.  This is by Basic Grey and is called 25th and Pine.  Thanks for looking and have a great day everyone.  Oh yeah, I haven't decided who is getting this yet.  Bribes accepted.

True Love Save the Date Layout

Love this wonderful Doodlebug line called Friendly Forest.  As many of you know my son is getting married 10/10/15 and these are the photos that the bride-to-be's good friend Micky Bedell took.  This line matches so perfectly with the photos which so beautifully capture the essence of them and their relationship.

Doodlebug Frosty Friends Layout

When I saw this new winter Doodlebug line Frosty Friends I fell in love with it.  I bought two of everything because these are my favorite colors.  Fun to make a snowflake sequin shaker.  Thanks for looking and have a great day.
