Note to Self

Hi everyone!! 
Amber with Best Stamped Intentions here with today's PL Inspiration post.
As I've been doing strictly Project Life for 2.5 years now, I'm finding my "process" change.  I used to do our spreads on a weekly basis, but now that Neysa is older and is busy with school/dance/playing with friends, I was finding that our weeks were getting kind of repetitive and boring. :)  So, I've switched to a monthly spread.  I do specific events (dance competitions, holidays, a friend's birthday party, etc. for example) together, and then I usually have a few pages of random stuff that we've done throughout the month that's notable, but not necessarily belonging to anything specific.
My very favorite part of doing it monthly is going back through my Momento app, and doing screen shot prints of the funny (or sometimes not so funny.) things that have happened that or that Neysa has said that I've posted in Instagram or Facebook.  Using the Design F protector, I cut them down to 3x4 squares and scrapbook them just as I would a picture.  I love looking back (especially since it's now the end of August and today's project is from April....) and re-living those moments. 
That's what it's all about, right??
Here's April 2015:
I am TOTALLY diggin' the flower card with the random petals stitched with Cape Cod Twine!
Timehop makes for some fun screen shots as well. :) 
I did another twine frame around the bottom right picture.  I really love how it gives it some dimension.
These doilies are FABULOUS for adding even more texture/depth to your basic cards. 

I'll be back September 6th with my very first PlanNerd post!  I'm pretty excited for that. :)
xoxo, Amber

Happy Teachers' Day!

Hello there! Sophie here. In Singapore, Teachers' Day is celebrated on the first Friday of September annually. I thought making a little personalized notebook will be a suitable gift for my little girl's teachers.

After binding my own notebooks, I embellished them with Cape Cod twine, doilies, stickers and tags from Bella Creationz. I also used stamps to add more hearts to the tag, as well as create a little banner.

I really love the combination of grey and yellow and think they make for such a gorgeous twine. Hence, I went on to create tassels for each notebook as well.

I hope this inspires you to create your own notebook, perhaps as a gift or even for yourself. Till the next post!

Teen Boy Birthday Cards

Hi there, Maria here from Maria Lina's Creative Designs. As promised from my last post on here for the birthday tags, here are the matching teen birthday cards I made using the "Cape Cod" twine.
I have twin boys who will be 16 on Monday, I normally don't do matching of anything because they would probably throw a fit, lol. But this once I was "allowed" to make them matching cards and I'm sure I will be the last time I get to do this. (sad face)
I think this is a perfect masculine card, especially for teen boys. I love how it uses the acronym for the sentiment, which seems to be the in thing these days. I did add some metallic screw brads on each side and some metallic eyelets for the enclosure. I tied several layers of twine and frayed the edges to give it a more rugged look.
Wishing a Happy 16th Birthday to my boys... Andrew and Nicholas!!! <3 <3 <3

Once again the matching tags.
Cape Cod Twine
Have a great day!!!

Mrs. Brimbles weaving project

Hi All, it's Anna aka Mrs Brimbles back again to share something different with you this week...

Many moons ago I went to college (I'm not gonna tell you how long because it makes me feel old he he!) and at college I studied art in many forms. I did the traditional drawing and painting but also some textile arts. I loved the textile arts more than I did the paining and drawing as I had less criticisms from the tutors for these. Yes I was criticised heavily by my teachers who just didn't 'get me', it's only because I loved art so much that I carried on regardless but that is another story for another day! The two textile art modules that I took where weaving and batik.

I haven't thought about my weaving for a long, long time. I used to love it though and got some very good marks for it. One day I was browsing on instagram and a weaving came up in my feed. I followed some of the hastags as I often do and found myself immersed in various weaving accounts which I have been lusting over ever since.

I decided to get my loom out again, I kept it because I knew one day I would use it again. Since I saw those photos I have actually made a few weavings, it's a bit like riding a bike, how to do it came flooding back to me. I am not quite as good as I used to be as following an accident I had last year with one of my hands my dexterity skills aren't quite as good as they used to be for finer work. Still I don't let that deter me, I enjoy it and find it very relaxing. As much as I like to paint and draw, there is something to be said for making or crafting somthing 3d with your hands and seeing it come to life.

I am always looking at different woold and fibres as my love for the art has never waivered. One of the things with weaving or textile arts is that it can be more pleasing to the eye to have more textures to look at so when I saw the twine from Timeless Twine I knew it would be perfect to incorporate into a weaving project!

I used the pink and white twine to create the warp. The warp is the vertical threads that you then weave your project onto. Once this was done I was then off! Here is what my finished piece looks like:

As you can see I used various shades of pink and white. I used this colour scheme as I had a friend in mind that I wanted to make this for and she loves pink!

I used a stick that I found when out on one of my walks in the woods near where I live. I love that you can bring personal elements that mean something to you into your art and your work. I used the same twine for the hanging loop.

Here are some close up images of the finished piece:

As I mentioned, this was a gift for a friend so I had to package it up all nicely. Funnily enough, packaging and wrapping is not my strong point what so ever! I have never been very good at it, I don't know why! Anyways I try my best. I used manilla tissue paper to wrap it up, folded a doilly round (I have Pinterest to thank for that!) and then used one of the other twines to 'string it up'. If I do say so myself, it looks rather nice.

I really hope my friend likes it and I hope you have enjoyed seeing something a little bit different to my usual art / journal / planner posts!

Snorkle & Snuba

Happy Friday, friends!!
Amber here from Best Stamped Intentions up today on the Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz blog with a new PL spread from our trip to Hawaii last September.
I can't believe it's already been a year...  For those who don't know, Snuba is a mix between snorkeling and scuba diving.  You're tethered to a raft that carries the oxygen for you instead of in tanks on your back.  I wasn't able to breathe w/the respirators so I couldn't do it, but my husband did and had a BLAST!

I chose to keep this LO very simple as the pictures really speak for themselves.  The Cape Cod Twine was the perfect neutral with some color for this project. The banner was so fun to make!

I also used Days of the Week Journaling Cards, and the Hello Summer Stamp Set to add a few little pops of cute. :)
xoxo, Amber

Let Your Hair Down This Weekend!

Hi there! Sophie here and I'm excited to share with you a little something I created using Cape Cod bakers twine:
I thought this would make a perfect gift for a girl friend or even a little girl, with the intention of encouraging someone to take a break this coming weekend. I crocheted the bow using Cape cod and Lemonade yellow bakers twine. Add on a hair clip and I had a quick and easy gift!

To jazz up the gift further, I embellished a small kraft bag with a white doily and star sequins. I also stamped the banner from the Weekend Plans clear stamp set and attached that to a metallic gold sticker sheet. This is such a useful product as it made adhering the banner to the project easy.
I popped a little note into the bag for my friend and I was good to go! I hope you are having some fun this weekend and perhaps you might like to invite a girl friend along as well? =)
