Hi everyone !!

Noe from SCN blog here with a new project to share with all of you !!

What do you think a nice card for a special friend? In addition, you can used it to deliver any gift card, you only include it in our paper bag!












For this Project I used Green Large and White Small colored Tags, Little Bitty Bag (Green Chevron Pattern) and Gold Metallic Divine Twine from Whisker Graphics shop:







Very easy to make !! Let´s go!! Step by Step:

  1. Punched a piece of white cardboard with your favorite frame and then died it with a background die to give more volume.
  2. Use your inks, have fun getting your hands dirty!! Use the same color you chose for your paper bag and tag ..
  3. Stamp it for a Bokeh effect and then add some ink splashes.
  4. Use your favorite stamps to add some messages to your paper bag and tag.
  5. Glue a blonde behind the paper bag.
  6. Add more layers to your card, for it cuts a slightly higher base white cardboard and a base for your card a little bigger than this white cardstock.
  7. Use a smaller tag to make the close of your card, fold it in half, cut corners and make a hole in the center. Add double-sided adhesive tape in one of the halfs and glue it on the right side of your card. Remember to stick it in the back of the base of your card
  8. Make a small and pretty bow and add some embellishment, in my case, I added some enamels dots.





You got it!! Hope you like this Card!! Have a nice week!!

Spider Web

October 11th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink


Are you decorating for Halloween this year??  Janae P. made a spider web decoration using the black divine twine and it turned out so spooky!

Materials for this project included:










You’ll start by separating the inner and outer parts of your embroidery hoop, you’ll be using the one without the clasp on it (the inner hoop). You’ll paint your hoop black and allow it time to dry.











Once it’s dry you can start stringing. I tie a knot to secure the beginning of my thread and then just start wrapping around opposite edges. You can either knot each stop or just wrap it around a few times and proceed. Once you’ve gotten around the outer edge and created a base for yourself you can start wrapping the twine in the outer twine (think dreamcatcher), spiraling into the center and getting tighter and tighter with your spaces. Knot of the center and add a spider for an extra spooky effect.










Each spider web will turn out different, so allow for mistakes and try out different methods with the twine for different effects.










Ready to Display!



Happy Birthday!!

Katie L. from the UK with Life in a Snapshot created with Happy Birthday Card with Divine Twine.

First cover the card with patterned paper and then use a stencil mask on the base and leave to dry.  Cut a strip of paper 2 cm by 15 cm and stick it to the center of the card.  Cut a wider strip 4 cm by 10 cm and use a border punch along the edges.


Wrap White Divine Twine around the bottom of the Little Bitty Bag: 


Die cut two small butterflies and layer them up. Wrap Divine Twine around the center and then add a button and a bow before adding them to the bottom of the Little Bitty Bag:



Take a button and thread White Divine Twine through the middle and tie into a bow.  Glue this to top of tag.  Adhere a Little Bitty Bag to the middle and slot a Large Colored Tag inside


Finish off card with a sentiment and buttons, adding Divine Twine through the centers to create little bows.

Hi, Connie here with a fun project using the Divine Twine  Red, White & Blue.  Divine Twine is just like stitching with thread but so much easier.  The twine doesn’t get tangled like the thread does making it easier to stitch a project.
Products used:











After the placement of the colors were determined I started stitching with the white twine first.  I threaded a needle with a big eye and began sewing like I would on material.












I skipped around with the because I was curious about how it would look.  So I stitched a few rows of red, and then went back and filled in with the white twine.  When the stitching was completed the stars were added along with the button and sticker. I’m pretty sure it will be the star of my Christmas tree this year.



Thanks for stopping by,

Fall Bitty Bag Wreath

September 30th, 2016 § 3 comments § permalink




Jessica C. created this absolutely gorgeous fall wreath out of Bitty Bags and the PLAID String Creations Round Template.  This is a perfect wreath to hang on the front door or over the fireplace to brighten your place with fall calls for Halloween or Thanksgiving!
















My first step was to figure out what kind of pattern I wanted to create on stitch board.  I ended up liking a circular pattern.  I threaded the twine about 30 stitches apart.  I had to tie off the twine on the back several times and found tying three knots made the knot big enough not to come undone.














Next I rolled the little bitty bags in a cone shape.  I first folded down the top to create a perfect rectangle and then rolled the paper into a tight cone.  I used the mono glue at the end of the bag to hold its shape.  I really liked using the little bitty bags because they were the perfect shape and size and I didn’t have to do any extra cutting.













After I finished rolling the Little bitty bags I cut my pattern paper into strips and folded them like an accordian.  I glued the strips together to create accordion flowers.  I cut the tips of the paper to create a petal like pattern.  I used brown paper circles for the center of my flowers.














Next I used mono glue to adhere my paper cones to the stitch board.  I used 36 cones on the bottom row, 9 cones of each color.  I used a bowl to put weight on the cones while the glue dried.






























I followed the same process for the second row of cones except I added glue to the upper part of the cone to adhere to the cones underneath it.  Again using 36 cones, 9 of each color. I used a smaller bowl to add weight while they dried.












Finally I glued my flowers to the center.











Now…Ready to hang!

Bitty Bag To Do

September 27th, 2016 § 2 comments § permalink




Check out this easy and inexpensive Bitty Bag To Do List from Michelle P.


Today I’m sharing a quick, cheap, and easy back-to-school DIY project to help keep the kids on task. We have a lot going on with school, church, soccer, band, jobs, friends, etc. so I thought making them a little “whiteboard” to keep on their nightstands or wherever they want to put it would help them keep the important things top of mind.


I picked up (2) 4×6 picture frames from the dollar store, and a pack of dry erase markers; and pulled out (2)  5″ x 7.5″ Middy Bitty Bags from Whisker Graphics.












I used the picture template from the frame to cut by Middy Bitty Bag down to size:













And then placed them in to the frame as I would a picture:













I used the notebook pattern for my daughter’s, and the purple horizontal stripe one for my son as his school colors are purple and black:












These cost $1.51 each to make.

  • Bag: 26-cents
  • Frame: $1
  • Pen: 25-cents

— $1.51 each!




















Have a great week!
