It's all about the presentation!

How many times have we
heard that it's all about the
presentation?  Or "you never have a 
2nd chance to make a 1st impression.

Giving a handmade gift is no 
exception.  Presentation is EVERYTHING!

I love making small 3x3 notecards.  While tidying
up my work space after Christmas, I ran across
tons of snowflake die cuts and I wanted to
use them up.  They were the perfect addition
to this small notecard set.

I made up two sets of cards and secured them
with ribbon from my stash and Timeless
Twine.  Check out the video and
tell me what you think!

Making multiples with Timeless Twine!

One of things I love to do is
make multiples of cards.  Some
might call it the assembly line - LOL
but I think it just makes sense when
you already have the idea, the inks are out,
you gone through the stamps & twine.

I'm excited to share with you
a birthday card I've created that
was inspired by Jennifer McGuire.
I used my Cameo to cut the 
balloons.  I put three 4x12 strips on my
mat and cut the balloon that I 
trimmed in Designer Studio.

This is what it looked like when it was cut.

I've got my Timeless Twine all ready to go!

Here's the video to show you how 
I added the Timeless Twine and Sequins.

Check out this great stamp set
by BellaCreationz!

Here's a couple of views of my finished project.

Okay - it's your turn to make some
"multiples".  Get your favorite stamp
set and make up a bunch of cards.

It's so nice to NEED a card, go to your stash and
there it is!

Thanks for stopping by.

It's a planner day!!!

Hello!  It's Cathy again from
 Mimi's Craft Corner but today I'm showing
you my new It's all About Me planner for 2015.
I decided to create this planner after seeing a new
stamp set from Bella Creationz called Plan to be Fit.

As soon as I saw it, I knew it was time to start
logging my progress and keeping track of my
goals and being accountable. 

Here is my planner in it's black mesh bag that
I bought from Barnes and Noble.  I have a thing
for these bags!!!  LOVE them!

I made a video for you showing you the 
inside of my planner and all the goodies used
from Bella Creationz/Timeless Twine.

Join us on Sunday's for planner tips from the 
Creative Crew!  Remember, if you don't plan
life will just happen.  Join us and take charge!

My first post for Bella Creationz/Timeless Twine!

I am very excited to be a new 
Creative Crew member for Timeless Twine/
Bella Creationz!  I have used many of their products
this past year and have fallen in love with so 
many things!  If you are a frequent visitor to my 
blog, you know I like to make 3D items and gifts.
Stacy has the cutest little packages to help me
create the perfect gift.

To start off, I created 2015 calendar
gift for my BFF.  I found the calendar as a 
free printable from Pinterest.  I printed
it out and trimmed it to the size I wanted.
Then I created a little booklet to hold
all the months.

The cover features a doily, sequins and twine from
Bella Creationz/Timeless Twine.

Six months will store on either side of the booklet.

You can use a small picture holder if you want to
display on your desk or even pin it on your 
bulletin board.

My BFF is not as "blingy" as me :), so I didn't add
more sequins to the individual months!

Here is a quick video showing you
how I put this together.
If you like this video, give it a
"thumbs up" on YouTube.
