PPPR DT Day~ mi casa es su casa

Hello and Happy Wednesday my friends! It's time for another DT day for PPPR :)
I made a fun, "welcome to the neighborhood card", using a couple different files from the PPPR store.
Files Used:
Center Panel Step Card Cutting FilesHome Sweet Home Cutting Files
I just love the sweet scenes you can make using Lisa's Files, this card base has so many different possibilities. I didn't make this card for any particular reason, just going through all my PPPR files and seen these two and the idea kinda popped in my head.
My sentiment came from a set by Hero Arts that I had yet to use and that sorta jump started this card. It's pretty sad to go though your stash and find things that have yet to be opened, does anyone else have this problem!? Obviously I thought I was going to use the stamp set, or I would not have purchased it, that's one thing I am not, is an impulse buyer. I encourage all my crafty friends to pull something out that you have yet to use and get crafty!
I want to thank you all for stopping by and have a great day.

TTDT Day: R is for Robot

Well, Monday is upon us again, one of the best things about Monday, is it's my turn to post over at the Timeless Twine  blog. Possibly the one and only exciting thing about Mondays!!
 We continue this month by sharing 3D creations with you all, I decided to make a 3D project to go into my peanuts bedroom. The hubby and myself are redoing a complete makeover on my old craft room :( and turning it into my 2 1/2 year old's, big boy room. My craft room is now down in our bedroom, it's bittersweet all in one, we made this decision because we will be planning for our second child soon.... no I am not pregnant yet, hopefully soon though.  I am lucky enough to still have a space to craft and having a hubby who is willing to let me have, half of our bedroom!
My peanut doesn't really have a choice, but I have decided that his big boy room with have the theme, "Robots", I am pretty sure he is okay with it though :) he loves my project!
Here is what I made....

It's a 3D Shadow Box Frame, I have been kinda on a kick with making these lately. I plan on making one that also says, "J is for Jayden" since that's my little peanuts name. I decided to loosely and sporadically decorate the inside of my frame with some vibrant Lemonade Yellow, Timeless Twine.
Lemonade Yellow Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine
My adorable robot is from the "Robots Cutting File" by PPPR.
Pattern Paper- Unknown
Studio Calico- Wood Stars
Orange Sequences

I hope you all enjoy my fun 3D project today!? I plan on doing a couple more things to the edges, like adding gears and more yummy twine.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a fantastic week!

TTDT Day: Sweet On You!

Hello everyone, happy Monday, Its my turn to post over on the Timeless Twine  blog today! If you didn't already know, this month the twine-istas with be sharing 3D Valentine projects with you all. I am going to kick off my first post for this month, by sharing a bag I altered.  
I decided to paper pierce my bag and do a scalloped crochet edge on it using my absolute favorite twine, Strawberry Cupcake. I didn't follow a pattern, I just SC down the bag, then turned, did four DC in first SC, SS in next SC, skip stitch and repeat.
SC: Single Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
SS: Slip Stitch
I put a Spellbinders die, cut side up, inside my bag and ran through my eBosser (thanks Dad & Mom, yes my dad does read my blogpost) :) to cut out the circle. I than placed the same circular die inside a larger scallop die by spellbinders to cut out the glittery circular frame. I put a piece of clear acetate on the inside of bag & adhered it down, so the candies wont fall out. The bag was filled with chocolates, but before pictures, my peanut and I got hungry :)
Items used from store:
50 Small Brown Kraft Bags - PRINTABLE BAGS - Candy Buffet Bags
Small Gift Tags - White
Sequins Mixed - Loose sequins mixed shapes and sizes - Sample size bag.
All my stamps used on my bag are by Peachy Keen Stamps.
Thank you all for stopping by and taking a peek at my altered gift bag, also be sure to head over to yesterdays post and check out our Simply White blog hop, if you haven't already, this new twine is just perfect and so are all the creations made with it!!

Okay, so are you ready to see what I created.... I whipped out the crochet hook for part of this project.
I just LOVE this twine, I have so many ideas whirling around in my head, this twine is so very versatile. Like I said, I pulled out the crochet hook and crocheted these adorable little hearts, I used two different hooks to get the two sizes. I then just added a button by threading it through the middle and tie-ing it off in the back.
My sweet image is a clear stamp from SP and Company from the Tine Wenke Collection, it's called "A Twirly Hug". I did the print and cut feature using my silhouette and using a file from the PPPR store called "Layered Labels 3 Cutting Files" to mat my image. I then colored it in using my Spectrum Noirs. My pattern papers I used, are from multiple different 6x6 paper pads.
