NEW VIDEO: Quick Tip for Storing Your Baker’s Twine and Linen Thread!

Twine Jar 1

We all want to have pretty craft areas, but not all of us have a craft room with space for all the fancy storage. So let’s create a bit of pretty where we can! Today I have a video for you with a cute idea for storing your baker’s twine and linen thread, no matter where you craft!

It’s easy and fun to keep your twine in a jar with a pretty bow around it! And I really encourage you to use your favorite ribbon to tie it up. It’s good to surround yourself with things that make you happy. When you look at this jar you’ll smile and it will make you happy to sit down and craft!

Twine Jar - Peggy Noe

I like to take my twine off of the cards or plastic spools it comes on, and transfer it to old fashioned wooden clothes pins. It looks so pretty on these clothespins and it’s actually easier to use! I like my twine to have a bit of curl to it, and when you twist it around these clothespins and store it there, it had a gentle curl when you go to use it. This looks really nice on cards and projects. The clothespins I use are the Honey-Can-Do Dry 01381 Traditional Wood Clothespins from Amazon.

NEW VIDEO: Embossed and Highlighted Fall Leaves!

Stampin' Up! Very Versailles Leaves - prettypapercards - stampinup

It’s almost fall and it’s time to start thinking about fall leaves! This is a “transitional” card, bridging the transition between summer and fall 🙂 And, I’ve created a new video to help you make some pretty embossed and highlighted leaves!

Today’s card starts with the standard A2 card base: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2,” scored at 4-1/4.” There are 2 panels on top of the card base. Each is cut at 3-3/4″ x 5.” The first panel is a piece of Mint Macaron Gingham from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack. And the second panel is Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.

Stampin' Up! Very Versailles Fall - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The watercolor panel has a light Petal Pink watercolor wash. After that dries, stamp the gorgeous leaf stamp from the Very Versailles stamp set using Mint Macaron ink. Then add some Early Espresso splatter. Tie a piece of Linen Thread around the lower portion of the watercolored panel; and tie a bow.

Using the Nature’s Roots dies, emboss and cut two 3-leaf clusters from Mint Macaron card stock and one large leaf from Petal Pink card stock. Color the veins with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend as shown in the video. Then lightly sponge the edges of the leaves with a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake ink. Also very lightly sponge the leaves. Adhere the leaves over the Linen Thread using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a copper Leaf Trinket using Mini Glue Dots.


Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink on a scrap piece of Petal Pink card stock. Cut with the small label die from the Perfect Parcel Dies, then trim as shown in the video, and adhere with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Special Occasions Pals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that add beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampn' Up! Woven Heirlooms - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The special occasion for today’s card is a friend’s wedding! The Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper is just the right paper for a beautiful card and a beautiful occasion. And of course a special card needs a special envelope. The envelope was made out of vellum and tied closed with the gorgeous Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon (did I say gorgeous?!!!). Some Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon were tied in with a few little Bird Ballad Trinkets (a tiny key and some leaves).

The card base is a special large size: 6-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ created with Whisper White card stock. A Petal Pink panel 6-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ was glued to the front of the card base. Then I cut and adhered a piece of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, 6-1/4″ x 4,” making sure to keep as many flowers as possible within the borders of this piece.

The sentiment was stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink on Whisper White card stock and cut out with a square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Rose Metallic Thread was attached to the back of the square. See my Video Tutorial on how to do this HERE. And a few Woven Threads Sequins were added for bling 🙂
