Customer Day!!

I love that I get to post customer projects on Monday! It really makes the week start off nicely! :)

My jaw dropped when I saw this scrapbook page! The colors and layout just POP! A big thanks to Ann for sharing it with us today! I spy some Bam Pop! Pop Frames, and Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious Chipboard! What do you see?

I'm not sure these owls could be more ready for Halloween! Emily and her daughter had fun creating these little cuties with some Cosmo Cricket Matilda Paper. They even had fun naming them but I will leave that to your imagination! hehe

Thanks for sharing ladies!

Friday DT Round-up!

Good Morning Blogosphere!
It's time for another Design Team Round-up!

First up is Jenn:
Aren't these cards ADORABLE!!!?
Jenn used brand spankin new Cosmo Cricket Matilda 6x6 Papers along with Bam Pop! Pop Font 2, which is a personal favorite of mine! Oh, and Pop Font 2 is 50% off at $12.50 and these stamps are HUGE and awesome quality!

Next up is BR-T:
Does it get any better than dancing robots? Beth used the long sold out Bam Pop! Hello Bot and Bam Pop! Volume 3 Collection papers, which are 50% off!

I had a ton of fun making these sticky-back canvas badges (or pins) with some Shinzi Katoh Pigment inks and the Decole Little Red Stamp Set! I made a removable tag out of the postcard from the Modern Red Kit. The recipient can remove the badges and reuse them however they see fit!

I hope you have a Fun Friday!
I plan on taking the boys to the Aviation Museum here on post and then tonight I'm teaching a class at my local scrapbooking store!

Customer Day and a Thank You!

I just wanted to say thank you to all the amazingly talented ladies that have sent in a submission for our Design Team call! WOW!  This is going to be rough! Tiff and I are going to sit down and go thru all the applications "together".  Hopefully we don't keep you in suspense too long but please be patient.  I know it's going to be hard to decide on only 2 new DT members. 

On to some fabulous cards!! 

Amy has me grinning from ear to ear with this kawaii card. She used the Torendi "A Kawaii Day" rub-ons, love that you can paper piece with them! 

The colors and layout of this card by Angela are amazing! The Rust washi tape frame, the scrunched up ribbon, the fun mushrooms, I just love it all! 

Amy may have calmed my fear of clowns with this card! ;) It's so fun and colorful!  She used some Sassafras Apple Jack Paper which is sold out but we still have the same fun images on the Apple Jack Sweet Treats.

Remember to keep those projects coming and to tell your friends about Torendi! :D

Friday DT Round-up!

Good Morning and HAPPY FRIDAY! TGIF!!!
Any fun weekend plans?
I have SCHOOL work to do, so nothing too snazzy! And, I must conquer Mount Washmore ;)
Before you take-in your to-do lists, here's some morning inspiration!

I made these cards for the Lawn Fawn Heart Cards for Kids drive:

I thought Bam Pop's "J Alphabet" stamp set (50% off) was perfect for Zach, who loves video games! Read more details here!

This is my ode to yo gabba gabba ;) Gavin is the same age as my sons, CJ and Liam, so I knew he'd love a big furry friendly monster! This is made with Bam Pop's "M Alphabet" stamp set. I also used the American Crafts Chit-Chat thickers (50% off). Oh and that fun paper and sticker is from Sassafrass Lass's Nerdy Bird Line! The stickers are only $1 now!

I made cards similar to this one for 3 other children. I adore that Kodomo No Kao Bicycle Stamp!!!! I just love personalizing cards! Read more details here!

Here's a goodie from Kelly:
Kelly used our now sold-out Kit of the Month! But, don't fret there are PUHLENTY of new goodies in the store and BRAND NEW Bam Pop Stamps that are about to hit the store! Don't you LOVE this card? LIKE LOOOOOVE? I know I do!

Last but not least, Jenn has a REALLY cool project to share with you:
There's a how-to video available HERE on how to make this cool canvas art! Jenn has used the SUPER cute Alice and Wonderland Storybook Stamp Set!

I hope these projects have inspired you!

Now, about those to-do lists...

Customer Projects!

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had an amazing weekend!

Amy is a card making machine.  There is always something new and exciting on her blog.  She left this cutie on our Facebook page.  It uses the new Sassafras Indie Girl Line!

Angela is back at it again with the rust washi tape  but this time paired it up with some Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride paper and chipboard.  CA...UTE!! I know I would love to get such a cheerful card in the mail!

Michelle made up this woodland flair card using some of our Shinzi Katoh linen tape.  She paired it up with some adorable mushroom images for the perfect combo!

Here is a sweet card by Rinne using some Sold Out Buzz and Bloom Clouds. (The prefect example of how you need to shop fast on all imported items at Torendi.  We only carry about 3 of each imported item). Ahh, this card makes me want to relax and enjoy the waves at the beach.

A big thanks to everyone who has submitted so far! OUTSTANDING CREATION!

Friday DT Round-up!

It's Friday the 13th!
Do we have any superstitious peeps out there in the Blogosphere?
How about some fun projects to kick-off your weekend?
We've gotten a TON of new products in the shop that are selling out left and right!

Check out Beth's awesome coloring job:
She used Torendi's Current Kit of the Month, No Place Like Home, which is sold out. If you were lucky enough to snag one of our kits this month, I cannot wait to see your creations!

Here are some cards I made with the Decole Camera Stamp before it sold out:
I used the brand new Sassafras Lass Glitter Alphas, the Kraft Log Tape, and some fun washi tape! I love any and all things camera related!

This card used generational stamping to create a fun pattern with the cameras.
You can do this with any stamp to achieve a fun, modern, graphic look!
And of course I used some washi tapes!

So, has anything strange occurred in your realm today?
Nothing here! LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Don't forget about our DT call!

Who's ready for some Torendi Customer Love?! 

Courtney is fairly new to Torendi but she is fitting right in perfectly! Look how cute her card is!  She used some of our new Polka Dot Washi Tape, Earth Love Chipboard (half off) and Material girl paper (sold out).  The embossed paper really puts this card over the top!

De made this "oh so adorable" paper hat out of our "Paris in Bloom" kit (half off).  I wonder if she wears it when she sews.  I know I would! PARTY! I also love the flower "pom pom".

Angela also used some of our new Washi Tape.  She used the Old Text Tape in Rust to really set off the colors in her card.  It's is such a calming and peaceful card. Beautifully done!

Stepping away from the cards, we have a breath taking layout from Nicole using the new Indie Girl Flag Banners! All I can say is this is jaw dropping, ooooh la la! 
Here is a close up of her magic. WOW!

Thanks ladies! I love love love your projects! Keep them coming!

Also, don't forget about our Torendi DT CALL!!
