Memorial Day Card

star-card
We are heading into Memorial Day weekend and although it marks the beginning of summer I always try to take some time to remember the soldiers who have been lost in the pursuit of our continued freedom.  We also should honor the soldiers who fight on our behalf every day.  I made this sweet card for a soldier that is coming home on leave soon.  I used some yummy solid twine and some variegated to give my card that extra special touch.

Grad Money Holder and Envelope

grad-card-envelope-too
Graduation season is upon us.  We have three graduations of direct family members as well as the children of some good friends.  My daughter is graduating from college with a degree in Biology and starting working as an EMT to get clinical patient care hours a few days after she graduates.
With all of these graduations this is a really easy card to make and you can fit a gift card, money or a check in the holder.  The cut file from Lori Whitlock comes with the envelope as well.  I used some yummy Marigold twine to decorate my envelope and make a fun tassel.  I wrapped the tassel around my fingers about four times and then tied off the top and trimmed the bottom.  I used a brad to secure it to the grad cap which was cut with a hole in the middle of it.  Be sure to check out The Twinery for all of your graduation and spring celebration decoration needs.

Easter Treats

Happy Easter:
I love making treats for special holidays and am excited about how these Rice Krispie treat pops came out and how cute they look with twine that matches the sprinkles that I put in the batter.  Twine from The Twinery just makes everything that much more special and oh so gorgeous.

Glittery St. Pat's

Happy March Everyone:
I love St. Patrick's Day.  I Irish step danced for 7 years as a kid and married a wonderful Irish man with the last name of Mulcahey.  This is my holiday and I love it.  I had a blast creating this treat container from Lori Whitlock using some wonderful twine which I curled and stiffened for the handle of my box as well as to adorn my card.  There are so many wonderful colors that you can use on all your St. Pat's and spring projects.

Happy Leap Day Everyone:
Anita here posting today on this Leap Day.  I am done with winter and am thinking ahead to spring.  I was lucky enough to receive some wonderful Deco Foil from Therm-o-web.  I had won a laminator at a recent crop so was able to create this project so easily.  I bought the candle at the dollar store and used lots of lovely The Twinery twine to highlight the foil designs.  I finished it off with some Doodlebug jewels.

Here are some close up photos of the top and the bottom.





Here are the fabulous The Twinery colors that I used.
