Friday DT Round-up!

Good Morning Blogosphere!!!
Fall is upon us and it's time to bring out all things knit and houndstooth, jewel toned and warm toned, and say good-bye to those long summer days!

I have a confession to make, Jenn shared this card with me some time ago and I fell in LOVE!!!! Don't you love the squirrel trailing across the tops of the letters!!!!? How about those pieced trees!!!? She used Sassafrass Glitter Alphas and Cosmo Cricket Matilda Paper.

During Autumn, we find ourselves baking and cooking more and more in preparation for the holidays! Here is a fun Coffee Lovers Take-out Gift Box that I made! Pack it with homemade biscotti or chocolate covered coffee beans (yum)! I used various washi tapes and the Bread and Milk Stamps.

Jenn made this card to celebrate former Torendi Setter's Kelly-Marie's 30th Birthday!

Speaking of baking...check out these fun cards Jenn made using the Bam Pop! abc collection y stamp set! She also incorporated some Kawaii rub-ons. It doesn't get any better than smiling treats, lol!

See you on Monday! We've got something brewing....

Customer Project Day!

Today's customer projects are all made with Torendi kits

Angela  used our Color by Number kit for this adorable card.  I love what she did with the fabric from the kit. She even added some Rust washi tape! Can't go wrong there! 

She also posted this mini album to her facebook page.  The chipboard is Cosmo Cricket Material Girl from out Paris in Bloom kit! I think the layout on this is perfection!

Michelle sent us two fun projects using one of our sold out kits.  Everyone needs a pen holder! I like how she added the strip of coordinating paper to accent the felt bird house! 

Awe, a gift for her sweet! :)

Friday DT Round-up!

Happy Friday Folks!!!
Any fun weekend plans? I plan on rebooting, lol! After tons of deadlines and being sick I just need a weekend to reboot, so I'll be spending my days in the digital scrapbooking realm (gasp!).

Here is some eye candy from the Torendi Setters:

Jenn's CAS card really showcases the cute little Bam Pop stamp in the corner! Can you see what it is? It's the world's bestest of friends, PB&J! Check out all the cute images in the Bam Pop abc collection F!

Beth has a lot of goodness going on in this layout! I love the paper pieced images from Bam Pop's abc collection J stamp set! Most of all, I love how Beth incorporated 4 different photos!

Because we're saying good-bye to Beth at the end of the month, she is giving away something Torendi on her blog! She's also posted a collection of her favorite Torendi creations which will be sure to inspire you :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Customer Project Day!

It's time for the fun inspiration of Customer Day Monday!! :D 

Courtney from Court's Crafts has two beautiful projects for us today.  One she posted on our Facebook Fan page and the other I found while checking out her blog!

Her first card showcases the beautiful colors of the Sassafras Indie Girl Wee Bundle. I love how the flower has added textured but mimics the flower patterned paper.  

This layout is just beautiful.  I love the embossed details with the fun Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Chipboard! (SOLD OUT)
Thanks so much for sharing your lovely projects with us!

Ashley  took the modern and cute look with her card! FUN!  I love that little tofu cube (at least that's what I think he is) from the "A Kawaii Day" Rub-ons. I also spy some Cosmo Cricket Paper that was in out Fresh Mix kit! Thanks for sharing your fun card on our facebook page!!!

And a big THANK YOU to all our Customers who helped make our 1 year anniversary possible!!
Don't forget to email me photos of your fantastic projects!

DT Announcements!

I have been honored to work with Kelly, Beth and Tiffany for so many amazing months.  They have all been wonderful additions to the Torendi Team.  

Kelly has been so busy with Lawn Fawn (GO KELLY) that she stepped down from the team a month early.  We are so happy for her and her adorable stamp line.  If you haven't seen them, you should check them out for sure! We will miss your fabulous style Kelly.

Beth will still be a Torendi girl until October, WOO HOO!  She has such an amazing way with paper, it is no wonder she has been picked up for so many more design teams! We wish Beth the best of luck in all her new and current crafting adventures!

Tiffany!  I just don't know what to say about her.  She is amazing and is never allowed to leave the Torendi team! ;)  She is our Design Team Coordinator and SOOO much more! I love her style, personality, everything and I am so lucky to have her helping me with all the Torendi decision making.  I'm also thrilled she will be moving SOOO close to Torendi SOON! :D 

Ok, and now for the new girls!  Be sure to leave them so love and let them know we are so excited to have them joining our team!  The "officially" start in October but you may see some Torendi things from them sooner. :D 


 Hello!  My name is Amy and I live in the gorgeous state of Washington with my 2 fab kids.  I'm engaged to thee most wonderful guy who is quickly learning the quirks of a crafter:)  I knew that I wanted to submit my DT application for the Torendi team because of the fun products that Jenn carries!!!  I'm thrilled to be a part of the Torendi Design Team!!!


Originally from Northern California, I made my way east to attend graduate school and have called NY my home for the past 10 years. Along with my beautiful dog Sara, and 2 rescued-from-a-basement cats, I live on the boys corridor of a boarding school just north of NYC. By day I'm a math teacher, but by night I'm all things paper and stamps. Papercrafting has been my go-to hobby the past 6 years, and I stumbled into stamping just about 2 years ago. Most of my projects fall into the clean & graphic category with a bit of cute throw in for fun - although I wish I was a bit more distressed and grungy at times.
