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!



Giveaway Time!!
I am giving away a Berries Jubilee Mini this month!  Leave a comment on this post and on my posts on the 18 and the 28th.  I'll draw a winner from those three days.

Trendy Twine -- Memorial Day

Hello everyone!  I hope you are enjoying an extra day off. Whatever your plans are today, take time to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.

A few of the Trendy Gals made projects for today.  Head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other projects.  


I made this card using stars drawn and cut from my Cricut.  I die cut an oval die to put the stars on and stamp my sentiment.  I glued down my Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine around the oval and added a bow.  I used pop dots on the stars for some more dimension.


I hope you have a lovely day!

Have a Super Birthday!

Hello everyone!

Today is my daughter's 18th birthday!  She is my youngest and graduating high school in two weeks.  It's an emotional time for me.

This is her birthday card.  She was an extra in the new Spider-Man Homecoming movie coming out July 7.  You can actually see her in the the first trailer that came out!  So she is into Spider-Man right now -- LOL!



I went on the Cricut Design Space last night and was so excited to see a new Marvel digital cartridge full of Spider-Man.  So I had to make a card for her.


I took a close up of Spider-Man to show you the details.  The red and blue pieces do cut out separately, but the machine drew all the webs and spider on the red!  I just love it!!

Thank you Cricut for releasing this!!

Have a wonderful day!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy Mother's Day!

Hello everyone and Happy Mother's Day!  The Trendy Gals made some projects to share with you today.  We used the new Tin Tie Bags and Pink Ribbon set.  I also used Pink Midnight Trendy Twine, a Pink Tag-It and Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dots.


The pink ribbon set has four different pink ribbons in it.  I used three of them on the bag itself.  Next, I wrapped the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine around the bag along with my stamped Tag It.


I finished off the bag by adding two die cut hearts.  It's a quick and simple gift!  The bags are super nice inside and could hold some yummy cookies or other baked goods :)

I hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day!  Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other fabulous projects :)
