Here is the project I created:

Tropical party decorations

Watermelon with tropical flower

I used the pineapple from the JGW Tropical Haven kit to create my watermelon.  I attached the sign with Lemon Peppermint - Trendy Twine (I just love this color!)

Lemon Peppermint - Trendy Twine

I wrapped some Lemon Peppermint - Trendy Twine around the top of my bottles.  I have seen this a lot on Pinterest and I really like it.  It adds a cute touch to your drink glassware and you don't have to worry about the adhesive coming loose from the condensation. 

Treat bag with lemon peppermint Trendy Twine

I used the Monster mini treat sac from JGW Monstrously Munchie Party Kit with the Backyard Barbecue SVG Collection to create this treat bag along with Strawberry Cupcake - Trendy Twine.

4th of July Boot ~ with Cyndy

I just love the new JGW My Hero kit.  I decided to make the Boot for my project today.

3d paper boot with pinwheels

I wanted to use the boot as a centerpiece so I added pinwheels from the JGW USA Ensemble kit.


These pinwheels are so cute and they where very easy to put together.


These pinwheels would look great in a bucket, bottle, vase or just about anything else you can think of and you can make customize them for any holiday or occasion with your choice of paper.  I hope you have enjoyed my project today. 

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.

Down On the Farm ~ with Cyndy

I can't believe how fast time flies.  As summer quickly approaches and temperatures rise, I am reminded of how much I have missed fresh tomato sandwiches!  My children love to visit Maple Spring Farms, it is one of our favorite outings.  In the spring we pick strawberries and in the summer we love their blackberries.  I also enjoy visiting the Farmer's Market.  My project today is in honor of all our local farmers, summer just won't be the same without you!

Barn box with pig, sheep, chicken and cow

I used Down on the Farm and the square box from SDS Basic Deep Lid Boxes (without the lid).

Barn box with cow, pig, sheep, and chicken
I sized the box as big as it would go on my mat.  The finished size is 4x4.
Just the right size for the cube of foam I used to stick the tubes in.


I think the farm animals are adorable!  I love them all.




I hope you have enjoyed my project today.  Don't forget to thank your local farmer!
