Trendy Twine & Pink Diamonds

Hello everyone!  The new Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems are featured today!  These are some fun gems that you are going to want to play with.  The Trendy Gals have made projects to show you how fun they are. Read down to the bottom to find out how you can win some of these new goodies!


I made a shaker card to share with you today. I found a diamond cut in my Cricut library and welded the base of the die cut onto my card base.  Additionally, I used a fun font and my Pink Glitter Gel Pen to write the happy birthday directly on front as well.


When the base was finished cutting, I did cut out the top layer of the die cut diamond.  It fit onto the the cutout very well on top of the acetate. I used my foam tape around the diamond on the back of the base and I filled it with my Pink Diamonds.  


After attaching my top base I added more Pink Diamonds on the front. I made a pattern on the sides and added some to the top corners.  Lastly, I added some Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine to the bottom and tied a bow.  

Now that you made it to the bottom, you have two chances to win some Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems.  The first way to win is to comment on all the design team blog posts and the Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine blog today--You can find all the blog links on the Trendy Blog.

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  This month we are featuring Celebration Trendy Twine and the Clear Pillow Boxes.  I used the Medium Clear Pillow Boxes for today's post. Additionally, I used White Tag-ItsChoose Happy Stamp set, and Bumblebee and Peppermint Stick Sequins.


I had a cute sticker set from Recollections sitting on my table.  I thought they would be perfect for the colors in the twine.  Bonus--they are scratch and sniff stickers!  That was a surprise when I opened them. 


Next I stamped my sentiments on my White Tag Its from the Choose Happy Stamp Set.  Then I added some yellow and black sequins from the Bumblebee Sequins Mix and red sequins from the Peppermint Stick Sequins Mix.


After filling the Medium Clear Boxes with candy, I wrapped my Celebration Trendy Twine around the box long ways a few times and tied a knot.  Then I tied on my Celebration pom poms that I made for this.


I just love these clear boxes -- they are so fun to fill and add some decorations to! 

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thinking of You

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I have a quick and simple card to share with you today.  I used Cotton Candy Trendy Twine along with some Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry Sequins.


I made this card on my Cricut.  It was a pre-designed card but it had a different sentiment to write out.  I changed it to the Thinking of You and picked a cute font.  It cut out all the pieces and wrote it in a black pen. 


I decided to add another layer under the pattern paper I picked out. My Cotton Candy Trendy Twine is wrapped around a few times and then tied in a bow.  Then I put it on with foam tape to pop it up a bit. I added the Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry sequins and then decided to outline the words with some fun Wink of Stella pens.  I love to add sparkle :)

Have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending Smiles

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have some cute little treats to show you today.  We are featuring Cotton Candy Trendy Twine and the 2x2 Candy Cubes. I love these little cubes and use them a lot.


I filled my 2x2 Candy Cube with some pink and blue Hershey Kisses to go along with my Trendy Twine.  Then I took a small strip of pink and white polka dot paper around the outside.  Next I wrapped my Cotton Candy Trendy Twine around the other side of the box.


I took a Pink Tag-It and a White Tag-It and cut them down a bit to fit on the box without hanging over and then just rounded the corners that I cut. The stamp is from the You've Got Mail Stamp Set and I added some pink sequins from the Raspberry Cupcake Sequin Mix and some blue from the Blue Berry Sequin Mix.  I also used a Sky Blue and White Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot on the Tag-Its.

Have a wonderful day filled with smiles!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- A Little Cup of Spring

Happy Easter! 

The Trendy Gals made some cute Mini Cup Easter Treats to show you today and I'm here with mine.


I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and some Raspberry Cupcake Sequins on my Mini Cup.  The Twine is wrapped around the cup and then I put my stamped and die cut image over top of that.


I used these cute Peep stamps from Simon Says Stamps.  Then I punched out a circle for the top and stamped the Happy Easter from a My Creative Time set onto it.  It needed a few Raspberry Cupcake sequins and some more Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the lid with a small bow.


Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the what the other Design Team Gals made--they are so cute!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Easter Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a super quick treat to show you.  I used the new Treat Packets in Spring Green and Pink. I don't think the pink are in the store yet, but I made them both so I decided to show them both.  I also used Twisted Lime and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.


I really did keep these simple.  I didn't have a tiny Easter stamp to use on a small tag, so I pulled up a tag on my Cricut and had it write Happy Easter in a cute font and with my new Glitter Gel Pens. 


I filled my treat bags with some pink jelly beans and taped it inside the treat cover.  Then I just wrapped my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the Pink Treat Packet and added my tag with the pink writing.  And the Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine went on Spring Green Treat Packet with the pink writing tag. 


I think these would be very cute embossed but I didn't try that today.  These Treat Packets would be great to keep on hand for small treats and gifts.  Be sure to check them out in the store!

Have a great day!
