Trendy Twine June Giveaway Winner

Hello all!  It's been a busy July for me and I just got around to picking a winner for the Trendy Twine Berries Jubilee Mini.


And the winner is:

Great card. I like the twine glued around the oval and the sparkle. My son's birthday is on the the 4th of July--this card design would be perfect.

Congratulations Sue and thanks for commenting on my posts! You can email me with the contact link in the right sidebar.  I can send this out to you this weekend.

Trendy Twine -- Hello Sweetie!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I am loving the twine this month -- Bubblegum Taffy!  It's so pretty :)  


I started with a small white bag.  Since I wanted to stamp and color a bit at the bottom, I slid a piece of white cardstock in the back before doing that.  The stamps are from the Foodies stamp set.  I picked out the candy bar stamp since I put some of the small Hershey's Bars in the bag. 


Next I folded over the top to back and punched two holes and added some Pink Polka Dot Trendy Page Dots to the bag. Then I threaded my Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine through a few times and tied a bow.  To finish it off, I stamped the Hello sweetie from the You & Me Planner set and another candy stamp to a Pink Tag It.  I added another Pink Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot, some blue sequins from the Frosty Sequin Mix, and a bit more Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.  I just taped it to the front.

This makes a cute and quick gift for someone sweet!

Be sure to head over to the blog to see all the sweet projects all month long!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy 4th of July!

Hello and Happy 4th of July!! A few of the Trendy Gals made some patriotic projects for today.  

My card uses a print then cut from my Cricut.  I thought this cut was so cute!  Originally, I was going to use this on a clear treat box.  But I didn't have any candy lying around for that.  So I made a card instead. 


I used the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around my fun star paper.  Then I die cut the rectangle and pop dotted my die cut onto that.  Last, but not least I added some fun silver, red, and blue star sequins.  I do love that there are different sized stars in the mix.

Be sure to visit the blog for the other project!


Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy 4th

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up with Trendy Twine today.  I'm sharing a 4th of July card with you.  I'm loving the Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine.  I also used the Happy stamp from the Feeling Happy Planner Stamp set.


For my card, I cut out the oval with a manual die and the 4th of July with the star from my Cricut.  I glued my Berries Jubilee around the oval.  Next I stamped the Happy stamp from the Feeling Happy stamp set before pop dotting the 4th of July down.  I really like the way it turned out. 


I added the bow of twine and thought I needed some sparkle.  So I grabbed a blue Nuvo Glitter Marker. Wow, that made it sparkle -- LOL!  I had not used them before so I didn't know how glittery it would get :)

Trendy Twine -- Happy Father's Day!

Hello everyone and Happy Father's Day!  The Trendy Gals made some projects for dad today.


I made a quick card from my Cricut.  All cuts, including the card base are cut out from there.  I added the Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine to the end of my tag. It's not just for fall :)


I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the stars.  Not sure you can see that too well though.  And I used dimensional tape to put the tag on.  It was pretty simple and quick to put together.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Father's Day!


Don't forget, I'm giving away a Berries Jubilee Mini this month.  Commenting on this post counts as an entry :)

Trendy Twine -- USA

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today. I have a fun treat box for 4th of July to show you.

I started with the Biggie Kraft Box 3x3 that you can find in the store. I just love all the packaging products you can find there at great prices.  You can fill this with your favorite candies.  Mine are usually of the chocolate variety :) 


I used some patriotic paper around the box and they wrapped my Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine around the other way and made a bow.  Next, I pop-dotted my USA die cuts onto two of the sides.  The die cuts are layered and came from Cricut Design Space. 


The top seemed a bit plain so I added some white enamel dots that may be a bit off white.  But I think it worked.


These are pretty easy to make and everyone would love a treat on the 4th of July!
