Trendy Twine - I Miss You

Hi everyone!

It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I have a quick card for you today featuring the fabulous Nautical Trendy Twine.

I cut out this fun life preserver from my Cricut.  The Nautical Trendy Twine was perfect for the 'rope' around the outside.  I taped a bit to the back and glued right on the edge to make the twine stick the way I wanted. 

The waves paper was perfect for this card.  Then I added some sequins to finish it off.

Be sure to visit Annie's Paper Boutique for all your twine and packaging needs!

Have a great day!

I played along with the challenge using the Card Sketch shown here.

Trendy Twine - Treats For You

Hello everyone! It's my turn to post over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I have some fun treats using the Medium Candy Bags and the fabulous Nautical Trendy Twine.

I filled the Medium Candy Bag with yellow skittles.  I really wanted to use Starburst, but didn't really like the way they settled in there.  I should have gone for chocolate nuggets especially since I love to eat them :)

Next I cut some yellow polka dot paper 3 inches by 2 1/2 inches.  I scored it at 1 1/2 and folded it over.  Then I added my anchor border cut from my Cricut, stamped my sentiment and wrapped my Nautical Trendy Twine and tied the bow.  I used glue dots on both sides of the yellow dot paper to stick the header to the bag.

I do like how they turned out! This is a great twine twist and the bags are a really good deal for the price.  Be sure to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique to pick these up while they are on sale!  

Have a fabulous day!!

Sweet Summertime Co-Blog Hop with Trendy Twine and SVG Attic

Welcome to the Trendy Twine-SVG Attic Sweet Summertime blog hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of Trendy Twine and SVG Attic. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists!

You should be arriving from Shelley's blog. If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the Trendy Twine blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Here is the project I created:

My card came from the JGW Tropical Haven SVG Attic Collection.  I used my Cricut Explore to cut it out and it will fit in an A2 envelope.  This is such a fun collection -- I can't wait to try out the other cuts in this set.  This card was very easy to assemble, the layers go together so well!

I used the totally fun Limeade Trendy Twine on the details parts of the leaves.  Then I decided to decorate the banner with some Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine.  I love to see pink and green together! I finished it off by adding some Frosted Lace Stickles on the the Sweet.
