Friday DT Round-up!

Good morning blogosphere!
Our new home is almost completely set-up...yay! Here's a picture of the morning sunlight pouring into our family room. I just love these couches from IKEA. <3

Now for the inspiration...
Every time I hop over to Courtney's blog, I feel like I've landed upon something extra special! This card is amazing! She used the Pink Paislee Old School Papers and her Slice to make something fantastic. Jump over to her blog for the deets!

This altered Altoid tin Jenn made is just TOO cool! She used the Pink Paislee Sweetness Collection papers and take a look at what's inside!


Here's a quick embroidery hoop I made using the Pink Paislee Old School Adornment, some burlap, and paint! Check out the full tutorial here!

Oh Amy! this is just too pretty for words! Don't you just LOVE this card! I love the colors, the layout, the details- EVERYTHING! She used the Sassafras Indie Girl Papers & Banners and an In A Stitch Bloom!

A quick reminder:
Don't forget the Torendi Customer Blog Hop!!!
Email Jenn at if you'd like to participate.
It's Tuesday, the 13th! Hope you'll join us!

Have a great weekend!

I'm Baaaaack! Friday DT Round-up!

Good morning and Happy Friday everyone!

The picture is a Hipstamatic shot of our new view...
I am just getting settled into our new home! My studio is the last room waiting to be unpacked and set-up! Any fun weekend plans? We're going to unpack (that's a given), make a trip into Seattle, and we're going to pick out a Christmas Tree!

Before I get to the inspiration, have you see Paper Crafts Magazine's Pink Paislee Sweetness Giveaway!!!!? You should surely check it out for yourself! And if you're like me and don't enjoy waiting around to see if you've won, we carry the Pink Paislee Sweetness Collection in the store!

Here are 3 cards made with the Old School Collection:

Courtney totally rocked the Sassafras Lass Vintage Brooch, didn't she!? She also used the Old School 6x6 papers and the Sassafras Lass Garden Bits Blues Chipboard.

Can you guess what item Jenn upcycled for her card!!!? She paired some cool stamped images with the Pink Paislee Old School papers!

And, I designed this really quick card using some new Lawn Fawn Stamps (My Silly Valentine) with the Pink Paislee Old School Papers!

And if you like Pink Paislee, you'll LOVE-LOVE-LuRRRve the Anthology Collection!

Amy's card is DELISH! Do you SEE all that Anthology goodness! WOWzers, this is a stunner!

Were you able to take advantage of Cyber Monday here at Torendi?
Don't forget to send in your customer creations to and they just might be featured here on our blog come Monday morning!

Have a great weekend!!!

DT Round-up!

Time to see what the ultra hip Torendi DT has been up to this week!

Amy placed this adorable santa on top for some Sassafras Indie Girl Paper.  I love the way it made Santa's suit POP and of course the hearts are perfect, cause we all love Santa! 

Courtney put this card together using all scraps from other projects! WOW, I would have never known! She used so many Torendi items on this card...Sassafras Garden Bits, In A Stitch Blooms, Paper Whimsies and Washi Tape

Tiff is of course traveling across the country to her new home but I managed to steal this little sneak peek of her dirty dozen projects off her blog!  I spy some Little Three Pigs stamps in there!  Be sure to check out all the guest designers on Tiff's blog too!

Jenn (that's me!) had two cards to share this week.  The first card uses some plaid paper in the Pink Paislee Old School line and Sassafras Glitter Alphas.
This card is clean and simple, just having fun with some smokey washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Customer Project Day and Don't Forget About the Torendi Challenge!

Hooray! I love it when I get emails with Torendi projects in them!  It totally makes my day and I hope that by me sharing on the blog, it makes your day too! 

Nicole from "I'm a Honey Bee" emailed me this adorable layout. How can the colors, hearts and stars not make you happy?!  She used some Sassafras Indie Girl Flag Banners and  Count Me In wee bundle. I also noticed a new layout on her blog with some green polka dot washi tape on it!  Go check it out!

Corinne from "My Bliss" sent me these fun Alice in Wonderland projects.  Sadly the Japanese Alice in Wonderland stamps are sold out but the Hansel and Gretel and Little 3 Pigs are just as cute!

 The layout and colors on her card are beautiful!

Thanks so much for sharing ladies!
