ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Trendy Twine July Project

Hello my creative friends! I'm excited to share with you a project I made for Twine it Up with Trendy Twine. It's July 5th and I thought I'd show you a patriotic 2 page layout to get you inspired to download all the 4th of July photos and get them printed so that you can scrapbook them. 

Project Recipe:
Trendy Twine Berry Red and Berry Blue twine from
My Creative Time "God Bless America" Sentiment
folded Dahlia flowers medallions
Cuttlebug Star folder embossing
Cricut cuts from Plantin Schoolbook - Roly Poly stars 
and Stand and Salute - Banner & Star border
Glittered Buttons

I used the Berry Red and Berry Blue Trendy Twine for the center of my dahlia flowers medallions,

As stripe accents on the star embossed navy paper

and to attach the star border to the smaller dahlia flower medallion

I hope you find time to get creative and join us at Trendy Twine for the Red, White and Blue July Challenge. I'd love to see what you have created.
Thank you so much for stopping by!

First Trendy Twine Design Team Post!

Did you know that I'm a Trendy Gal??? 
Yes, that's right and No, Lesley, you can't take it back. Today, I make it official with my first post for Trendy Twine as a design team member! 

My fellow Trendy Gals and I are sporting the Berry Trendy Twine on this months Patriotic projects. For my project I decided to alter a popcorn box. I've used Washi tape from Annie's Paper Boutique to wrap around the top and bottom of the box then tied the opening closed with navy grosgrain ribbon, I then created 3 felt star fireworks with tendrils of the Berry Red and Berry Blue twine and finished the project with a Thank You tag using My Creative Time dies and stamps.

This would be a great 4th of July party favor.

I hope you'll stop by the Trendy Twine blog and join us for this months challenge HERE.
