Using Divine Twine for Book Binding

February 16th, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink



Hi Everyone!!

It´s DT Noe here from El Scrape de Cris y Noe to show you another inspirational project using Whisker Graphics products!
Did you know that Baker Twine is perfect for binding our projects? Besides being pretty, it’s very resistant and the way to bind with it couldn’t be easier. Enjoy the DIY book binding materials!
















The first step is cut our paper to a measure of 12×6 and fold it in half … With your Crop to Dile or similar tool, make a hole that matches the fold, both at the top and bottom.








Repeat this step on the spine of your album, using one of the inner sheets as a template to mark where the holes should go.
Then pass the Baker Twine through the inside of the sheets and have both ends come out through the holes in the spine.










You only have to tie both ends !!
Following this same pattern I also made a little notebook in which to write my memories and placed it in the final part of the álbum.














Don´t forget to put a nice piece of Baker Twine in your tag … Remember … A Tag without Twine, isn´t a Tag!













At you can find a lot of precious colors of Baker Twine .. my favorites … the metallics!! Get started on your twine projects today!

Make Movie Night fun!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Janae here…I put together some movie fun movie handouts for my kids’ teachers. They could equally be used as last minute Valentines :)

I started with a red chevron stripe middy bag, some white crinkle confetti, a candy bar and a bag of popcorn. I made a coordinating set of tags, one with movie night stamped on it for the front of the bag and one with a redbox code I slipped in the bag with the other goodies.



































Valentine’s Day Tags & Banners!

February 9th, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink


Hi everyone,  Steph Ackerman with Live Love Scrap here today with some quick and easy projects for Valentine’s Day.

I created some mini cards measuring 3″ x 3″. The white panels were cut a little smaller and I stamped a selection of stamps from the Candy Hearts stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps. Once assembled, I wrapped Divine Twine Metallics – Rose Gold around each card. The twine was just the right embellishment needed.









I created banner strips for the next cards and used Divine Twine Metallics – Rose Gold to hang the banner strips. I also stamped a selection of stamps from the Candy Hearts stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps on the banner strips.










And Valentine’s Day is the sweetest day of the year so you can’t just give a card, you need to give some candy too. I had these test tubes that fit small candy hearts perfectly so I embellished each with Divine Twine – Red Solid and Divine Twine – Cherry, wrapping the twines around the test tubes.














I created little tags which I also stamped with a selection of stamps from the Candy Hearts stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps. I added Solid Red and Cherry twines to the tags, then added the tags to the test tubes.






















These are perfect little cards and treats to give your child’s classmates and teachers.

Bitty Bag Photo Keepsake

February 7th, 2017 § 1 comment § permalink



Hi, Connie here with photo bags using the Bitty Bags, large tags and Divine Twine by Whisker Graphics. The Bitty Bags are about 5×7 in size, so perfect to stuff photos in for storage or as a gift bag.











I started out with the Bitty Bags in red and black. They come in all colors and designs. I paired the Bitty Bags with the large tags and red and white Divine Twine for these keepsake photos.











These are my photos that I want to give in gift bags ~ cute kid photos and vintage photos.

First the vintage photos:












The Bitty Bag was stamped with a background stand and so was the tag.  Added Divine Twine to the tag and wrapped it around the bag.  Added embellishments and then the photographs.














 Up next, the cute kid photos~












The Bitty Bag was decorated with pattern paper, added the large red tag and embellished. Tie the Divine Twine on the tag and around the Bitty Bag.













Get started on your DIY photo crafts!

Bitty Bag Gift Bags!

January 24th, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink




I’ve always been big on happy mail, but I sort of slacked off last year.  So this year one of the things on my list is to send more happy mail.  I have a list on my phone of the holidays I want to send something for:  New Year’s, Valentine, Mother’s Day, Spring/Easter, Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

New Year’s is first up for fun gift bag ideas.
I stocked up on Christmas clearance from Target at 90%-off and thought I could use the gold and silver items to embellish my Gold Metallic Horizontal Bigger Bitty bags for some new year pizzazz.












I got some fun tissue and included a family picture from Christmas, a card, and some chocolate gold coins.













I embellished the outside of my DIY gift bags with a lace doily, a large colored tag, gold and silver initial ornaments, and Divine Twine Metallics; gold & silver Divine Twine, that I stitched down.



































Starting 2017 spreading good cheer – check!
