Using Twine for a Card

February 19th, 2019 § 0 comments § permalink



OMG I am having great fun using Whisker Graphics twine on my card. Using single threads and following patterns along with the addition of a bead… it makes and amazing card accent. Whisker Graphics has an amazing collection of twine colours to choose from.

To make this card I awl punched out the pattern. Use some that available online or make your own.




Following from one side to the other going up and down through the paper pattern create your twine accent.








Next I added beads to finish the pattern off.





This accent piece was squared off, matted for coloured layers and popped up using foam dots for depth and dimension.


I put it onto the floral paper base, added the die cut sentiment and corner accents. It makes and awesome card design.





Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon when I come back with so many more projects using Whisker Graphics products.

Valentines’s Day Tag

February 10th, 2019 § 1 comment § permalink


Hey there friends!

Today I am sharing a Valentine’s tag I created for Whisker Graphics.

I used a:

Here’s my process:

I glued patterned paper to the tag and then trimmed off the excess:




I cut the Sweet Sticky Label in half. Using a pencil, I traced part of a heart on each side:




I used a push pin to punch holes along the pencil line of the heart:




I decided to use the Red Solid Divine Twine to hand stitch the hearts:




I peeled the twine apart, using two strands instead of the whole strand so that the stitching wouldn’t be so thick on this small space:




I popped the Sweet Stickys Label up using foam. I fussy cut the “XO” from patterned paper and glued that on my tag:





I finished off the tag with a Divine Twine bow:






I love how this tag came out and will be adding it to a Valentine’s Day card.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


A Page from My Scrapbook…

January 29th, 2019 § 1 comment § permalink


Colleen from Scrappin Granny here sharing a scrapbook page with you.  I had so much fun creating this page using products from the Whisker Graphics store.


I started this page by picking out some Gray Divine Twine.  I cut 3 equal lengths of twine and then starting braiding it.




Once I had it braided I put it in a mixture of white glue and water and made sure the twine was thouroughly coated.




Next I cut a single piece of twine and put that in the water and glue mixture.




While this mixture was soaking up the glue and water I arranged the braided twine into the shape I wanted.  I put this on a silcone mat so it would stick.




While this was still wet I took the single strand of twine and wrapped it around the braided twine.  I wanted it to look like the barbs on bard wire.




Don’t worry about the lengths as you can cut them after everything is dry.  I left mine overnight to dry.  While this was drying I two tags and inked and sprayed them and left them to dry overnight as well.  I tell you that the tags are just so great to work with, love how easy they take the ink and spray.




Once both items were dry I started assembling the rest of the items on the page.  I love how the tags gave a rustic feel and the bard wire turned out just like I wanted it to.



Please check out the rest of the awesome products in the store.

So until the next time have fun creating.


Perpetual Calendar

January 13th, 2019 § 1 comment § permalink


Perpetual Calendar
Hi and Happy New Year from me to you, fellow crafters! It’s time once again to share with you a project I made using product from Whisker Graphics. I wanted to make something a little different (for me anyway), and something that will be useful in the years to come (until I wear it out! 😊 ). For this project, I decided to make a Perpetual Calendar that I can set on my desk. This can be made any size you want, but I’ll show you what I did to make mine, along with a box I created for it. Let’s begin, shall we?
Supplies needed:
The Middy Bitty Bags-4 and Bigger Bitty Bags-6 (depends on size of your tags), 8 large tags, cardboard for box and chipboard for tags, white cardstock, double sided tape, glue, and distress ink.




Making the Box
Step 1: Cutting the box
I cut out a piece of cardboard for my box 9”x6” and cut off 2” from each corner to get the box pattern.


Step 2: Box sides
If you’re using cardboard, as I have done, you can take a ruler and run it on it side and crease with a bone folder, in order to get your sides made for your box. If you are using chipboard for your box, I use my trimmer to cut into the chipboard without going all the way through in order to make my fold.



Step 3: Corner Stabilizers

In order to get the box sides to stay up, we’re going to need to make some “stabilizers”. Cut out 2 – 1”x5” strips and 8 – 1”x2” strips, fold each in half with bone folder.




Step 4 and Step 5: Prepping the stabilizers
I neglected to mention that you’ll need scissors, but here I have angled cut each strip so they’ll fit better in the box. I then took my double sided tape (I used Scor-Tape) and adhered to one side of the stabilizers.






Step 6: Insert stabilizers
The larger strips will go inside your box, and 4 smaller ones on the inside and 4 smaller ones on the outside of each corner. This can be a bit tricky, so if you want, you can temporarily use masking tape on the outside of your box to hold it into place until you get your stabilizers in.



Step 7: Decorate your box
You can either decorate your box now, or wait until you’ve finished getting all your inside pieces done. Either way works. Here I’ve decorated the outside with a leftover piece of a bag and glued on twine. You’ll see the final results in the final pictures.




Time for the Tags!
Step 1: Tags for Months of the Year
Here I’ve used the Middy Kraft bags as my mounting paper. I cut out a tag using chipboard that will fit inside my bag. I then folded over the top and the corners and glued them down with double sided tape (liquid glue is fine too).




Step 2: Adding a layer
I wanted to put a decorative piece on top each side of the tag, so I used a smaller template of my original tag, opened up a bag by cutting the folded end open and further opening up the bag all the way. I then laid it on top of the bag so I could cut out my mounting paper (think of it as using scrapbook paper).







Step 3: Adhere
Mount your cut out piece on both sides of your tag and adhere to your tag.




Step 4: Tags for Days of the Week
Now cut out the size of tags you need for your Days of the Week. Mine are cut to 5”x5 ¼”. I totally covered both sides of the tag without leaving a margin.







Step 5: Add your Titles
This is a sample of my titles. Here you see a day of the week. In the final picture you will see everything finished, with Months, Days, and Dates. You can either use pre-made stickers or cut out your words from a die cut machine. Since I didn’t have stickers, I cut mine out with my Cameo and used a glue stick to adhere.




Using the large tags for your Numbers
Step 1: Prep
I needed to trim off ¾” from the bottom of my tag. I wanted to do this last, to see if I needed to shorten them any. As it was, I did need to trim.


Step 2: Distressing
I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Walnut stain. I inked all around the edges and lightly in the middle on both sides of the tag.




Step 3: Cut a strip for border
I used this strip to make a border on both sides of my tag so I’d have room for my numbers. Now, let’s look at the final project! hope you give this a try! It’s such a fun project!



All done!
