Trendy Bakers Twine -- Warm Wishes Treats

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I have a quick treat box to show you using Aqua Midnight Trendy BakersTwineMedium Kraft Pillow BoxesWhite Tag-ItsLet It Snow Stamp SetPink Midnight Trendy Page Dots (Black Polka Dots), and Blue Berry Sequins.


I was able to fit four Snicker Minis in the Medium Kraft Pillow Boxes. Then I cut my pattern paper two inches wide and long enough to go around the middle and tape it to the box.  The Aqua Midnight Trendy Bakers Twine was wrapped around three times the opposite ends of the paper.  


I stamped the sentiment from the Let It Snow Stamp Set onto the White Tag-It and inked the edges of the tag with the same color ink. Next I added my Black Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot to the top and tied my tag on with a bow.  I finished it off with a snowflake die cut from my Cricut and added a sequin from the Blue Berry Sequins to the middle and another one to the tag.

Have a great day!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I' posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  Even though it seems like time flies by, I'm happy for a new year, new start.  I'm hoping this is going to be a great year!

I'm sharing a New Year's card with you today. I should make some more to send out. This was a pretty easy one to make once I settled on the design.  I went with Totally Black Trendy Twine to go along with my print then cut new year's penguin from my Cricut.


I used this fun background paper with sparkles.  It's from a Christmas paper pad but it was perfect for this New Year's card.   I wrapped my Totally Black Trendy Twine around the top layers and tied a bow.  Then I pop dotted those layers onto the base layers.  I also pop dotted the penguin on and then added some sequins from the Lemon Midnight Sequin Mix, just minus the lemon colored 😊


To finish it off, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sash and the top hat band. It was fun to make this one!

I hope your New Year is off to a good start and I wish everyone the best year yet!!

Trendy Twine Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

The Trendy Gals wanted to share some Christmas creations with you!

These were my Christmas cards this year.  I started them two weeks ago when my power was out all day.  I usually don't make stamped cards that I have to color.  It takes me too long.  I'll need to make some New Years cards to send out to the people I missed 😉


I used Candy Cane Trendy Twine (which is unfortunately sold out right now) because it is one of my very favorite twists.


The stamps are Believe in the Magic Sentiment Kit from Unity Stamp Company.


I colored the stamps in with my Zig Clean Color Markers and some gold and silver glitter pens for the ornament tops.  Then I added red self stick gems on the green pattern paper cards and green self stick peals on the red pattern paper cards.

I do hope you have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy the day!

Trendy Twine -- Merry & Bright



Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Can you believe that Christmas is in four days?  I'm not ready LOL!

Today I made a quick Christmas Card.  I used Berry Trendy Twine, the Merry & Bright stamp set and some Candy Cane sequins.


This card went together pretty quickly.  I die cut the oval and the image is a print then cut from my Cricut.  I glued my Berry Trendy Twine around the oval and tied a pretty bow for the top. 


Then I stamped the sentiment from the Merry & Bright Stamp Set at the top in red, pop dotted my penguin on the card and added some Candy Cane sequins.

Have a fabulous day!

Trendy Twine -- Merry Christmas Treats

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine

I cannot believe it's almost Christmas!  I have so much still to do.

Today, I have a project using the Mini Candy Cubes, Berry Trendy Twine, the Merry Christmas Stamp set, and some sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley.


I added red and green M&M's to my Mini Candy Cubes.  Then, I cut out this label using a die and stamped the Christmas Blessings sentiment from the Merry Christmas Stamp set.


I punched a hole at the top and threaded my Berry Trendy Twine through it and around the box and tied it off with a bow. Then I just added a few sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley to the tag.  I love the tree sequins in the mix!


This is a super fast and easy project and would be perfect to add by the place settings for Christmas dinner.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- Give Thanks

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I know we are all thinking about Christmas right now, but I'm posting one last fall project today using the Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine along with the Autumn Sequin Mix and the Chocolate Truffle Sequins.


I made this banner with a file that was shared in a Cricut Group.  It was just so fun and I knew my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine would look great with the paper I picked out.  


I added Clear Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen to all the letters and the leaf.  You can see that much better in person as it's hard to photograph a banner 😃 Then I added some Autumn Sequins along with brown sequins from the Chocolate Truffle Mix to the panel.  I didn't want to over do those.


Lastly, I tied little Creamy Pumpkin Bows to put on all the banners--two per banner.  Then I laid it out on the floor, doubled up my twine, and glued all the top tabs around the twine to secure it.  It's pretty sturdy!


This folds up nicely to store for next year!

Have a great day!
