Twistin' #83

Here is my take on Twisted Sketch #83 - this week's twist was "Black" any how, any way!  Go over to the Twisted Sketches website and try out the sketch for yourself!

Taggin' it

These fun bottle tags are making their way over to re:Discover this week!  I am in love with this die and I know I am going to use it a lot all year round.  I feel like I'm always giving wine as gifts (who doesn't love that??), so instead of putting it in a bag I can make a fun, personalized tag for the recipient!

Twistin' #81

Here is my take on Twisted Sketch #81, the twist for this sketch was "Love".  I have been wanting to make a Christmas-y kind of card lately, especially since I need to get some Christmas stock over to re:Discover since Santa is going to be there next weekend! So I decided to use a "Peace, Love, Joy" stamp in the background of the snowman as my twist.  I just picked this Tim Holtz Snowman die up from Michael's last week, I was super excited to put it to use!  Check out the other designer's work over at Twisted Sketches and try it for yourself!

Twistin' #79

Here is my take on Sketch #79 over at Twisted Sketches!  The twist for this sketch was "felt".  I used my PTI Cupcake die to cut out the felt for the top of the cupcake.  I made this birthday card for my friend, Ashley.  She is a fellow crafter so it felt special to create something a little different for her.  I used some liquid pearls & rhinestones on top of the felt to make it look like fancy sprinkles.  Check out the rest of the Design Team's work over at Twisted Sketches and try it out for yourself!

Twistin' #77

I can't believe it has been over a month since my last blog update; the last 2 months have flown by!  Mark and I have been traveling every weekend for what feels like forever and now that the weather is cooling down so are our schedules which leaves me with more time to craft on the weekends.  I put in a PTI order last weekend for some holiday stamps & dies and I can't wait until it shows up this week so I can get to work on some Christmas stock for re:Discover.  In the meantime, I am going to post the Twisted Sketches that I have done for the last few weeks.  Head over to Twisted Sketches to check everyone's work out and submit your own take on the sketch!

This is my take on Sketch #77 - the twist was "plain".  The twist worked out perfectly for this card since this was made for my father-in-law and I don't have a lot of masculine stamps.  Keeping it simple ended up keeping me from making it look girly.
