Happy Halloween Candle Holder

October 8th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Designer, Vicki Dutcher, is here with a Fall gift giving idea. Gone is the traditional orange and black. Instead, she pairs Solid Green Divine Twine with Solid Black for a winning combination. A miniature coffee cup is the base for the twine — clever!  It makes a colorful, seasonal candle holder. Here’s a secret — the lid can be removed to include a a treat. I won’t give any more away. Please get the whole story by watching the tutorial on Vicki’s blog at All I do is Stamp. Have Fun!

Bitty Bag Recipe Binder

October 6th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Recipe collecting can get messy and disorganized. We tear recipes from magazines, print them online, and have a file full of the old school recipe cards. What do you do with all the different shapes and sizes? How do you keep them organized.? Shirley Karnos has a solution: a simple, sensible recipe binder to house ALL of your recipes!  She starts with an aqua Bigger Bitty Bag cut down a bit to fit into a 5.5 x 8.5 binder. She stamps and labels the cover and each recipe category on a Sweet Sticky. (The Sweet Sticky Labels are available in three colors and also come with a template so text can be added and printed on your printer – handy!)


Laminate each of the section dividers to make them sturdy so pages turn without tearing.


Trim the top of the laminated bag to open it and create a pocket to store smaller recipe cards and magazine clippings.


Hole punch fullsize recipes and add to the appropriate section. The three ring binder makes it easy to add new sections and pages as needed.


That’s it – recipe storage made simple! For more details on creating your personalized Recipe Binder, please see Shirley’s blog at ShirleyShirleyBoBirley.

Divine Twine Pom-Pom Pens

September 10th, 2015 § 2 comments § permalink

Project 2I think we all can relate. Pens seem to walk away. I’m not judging; we’ve all done it. You borrow a pen, or sign a paper and before you know it the pen is innocently still in your hand once you’ve left its owner. Here’s a simple solution, by one of our new and creative WG Designers, Vicki Dutcher. She has cleverly personalized her pens with Divine Twine. You can tell the colors are from our new line of Divine Twine Bamboo. Look closely and you’ll see the beautiful luster! Each pen is carefully wrapped then capped with a homemade pom-pom. To add to the wow-factor, Vicki uses the same shades to wrap the pen holder. Love the fresh, clean look! This set would complement an office or be a great gift for a favorite teacher or pen-losing friend. Check out Vicki’s blog to learn more about her and her pom-pom pen set at All I Do Is Stamp.
