Plan a Shaker Saturday

Today I am on Timeless Twine and it is "Shaker Saturday" and since I have recently gotten into planners I wanted to combine my love of making paperclips with my design team project so a shaker clip was born!

I created the owl file in my silhouette program from scratch. Believe it or not my first run of this worked as far as sizing and everything! I used some clear acetate and cut two circles of it one for the first layer and then I cut multiple layers of the paper to create a raised area for the sequins to sit in cause I was not going to attempt pop dots or foam tape. Then I used another circle of acetate to seal it up and another layer for the back. I love this little clip! The sequins move around great, although I would prefer to use a smaller sequin in this size it still shakes even though it is a small space.

The colors are a fushia pink and a really pretty turquoise color. I used the Raspberry Pink to create a fun tassel to tie onto my planner and a mix of sequins. Some are not in the shop yet (stars etc) but you can find a bunch of mixes Stacy has in the store and more to come!

I didn't actually stamp anything in my planner because the month we are on is Green in my planner and so it just didn't go with the colors I have here so I just moved to a page in my planner that looked good with my tassel and clip. But check out Bella Creationz planner stamps in the shop!

Planner Sunday with Minnie

Today I am on Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz and its a Plannerd Sunday. So I busted out the Erin Condren and used My "Plannerd Stamp Sets" and decorated up my planner. The stamps are so versatile it just works. The lines from the first Plannerd set fits perfectly in the squares. I love that you have a variety of shapes to use as check offs.

I use a Frixon pen so it is erasable and that is a lifesaver. All the supplies I used are listed below. The pages pretty much speak for themselves what I did to them. I like to have a memo or a To do list for various days and my Top 5 is my wish list. Trust me I didn't finish it but I have two more things I can add!!

If you are a PlanNERD you really should grab the planning sets by Bella Creationz.

You Da Balm!

Its my design team day for Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz and I decided since one of the requirements was to use Strawberry Cupcake twine to do a "Balm Box". I took an ornament box I had purchased in silhouette store and reduced it down and made some modifications to create this little box for the balm to sit in. I should have done a decorative frame around the opening but hey I am super busy!

The box was easy to construct. I do want to make more of these when I have time to create my own file. I see things I will do differently. Have you tried these EOS lip balms? If not...where have you been cause they are seriously da balm!!! I love them and plan to buy lots of them.

I think it will be something I will start buying ahead and give as gifts to my friends. I know you can grab some sets at Sams or Costco pretty reasonable.

I used some sequin mix on my little tag. The tag was stamped using the Bella Creationz "Happy Days" Stamp set. Grab this set it has all occassions on it!

Snappy Card

I am on Timeless Twine today and I wanted to make something camera related. I love all the camera papers that are out, I love aqua, red and yellow together for a pop so this is a combo of all the things I love.

I used a file from My Scrap Chick and what I love about this is that you can give this card to someone and they can utilize it as a photo frame afterwards! A picture could go behind the polaroid area.

I used the colors I mentioned above. I cut all the basic solid colors out of AC textured Cardstock. The little camera paper is from Amy Tangerines plus one paper pad my sweet friend Brianna sent me for my birthday. Well she sent me a bunch of goodies that I am hoarding. She knows I love halloween so she got me a mega halloween bundle from We R Memory keepers I cannot wait to use (If I can bring myself to do it)

I used Cherry Red and Lemonade Twine to make it splash color across the white paper. I love how it turned out. Its a bit harder to photograph and capture the entire thing well but hopefully you can see it well enough. I also used a Bella Creationz stamp set called "Oh Snap" which is super cute. She has several stamp sets out now so you should check them out. If you are a planner person there are stamps for that too!

Photo box decoration

As you are reading this I am on a beach somewhere basting in the warmth of the sun! But i am still showcasing projects for this month. Today I am on Timeless Twine and I made this crazy looking decoration. I had originally planned to make a kraft box to put it on and I think it would have made it stand out more but I just couldn't get it all done. I liked the aqua/black combo. I made a button flair that mimicked the graph design on the aqua paper underneath it. I decided to just make it for a decorated up photo box. I used a pretty pink posh photo strip die for the area below it and even though you can't tell it that is silver foil paper behind it. I also used the silver foil on one of the sqiggly arrows. The angle I took the picture does not show it off but the button catches so much glare I had to leave it like this. I could take 100 pictures and still not be happy with them and I can not afford the time right now so I took the ones I thought looked good and kept them.

I layered this with lots of texture. The kraft paper is a more textured kraft that I normally use and then I cut some leaf shaped burlap. That stuff frays like crazy. I popped some curls of Timeless Twine Natural twine behind it to add to the texture. I might end up cutting those tails down on the black flags but for now it is done!
