Trendy Bakers Twine -- Be Merry!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, the Trendy Gals are spotlighting Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.  I also used the Small Pillow Boxes, the Merry & Bright Stamp Set, and Peppermint Stick Sequins


I filled my Small Pillow Boxes with my Christmas M&M's.  Then I wrapped my Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine around the box like a package and made a knot.  Then I used a tag die to cut out the tag, stamp Be Merry from the Merry & Bright Stamp Set onto it, and I added a sequin to each tag from the Peppermint Stick Sequins.  I just finished it off by tying the tag onto the box and finishing it off with a bow.


Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thankful for You

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a card to share with you featuring Orangesicle Trendy Twine and the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp set, and I used some sequins from Chocolate Truffles and the Autumn Sequins mixes.


I picked a pumpkin from my Cricut Design Space and made it a print then cut.  Then I cut out a the white layer with a die to make the wavy border.  Next I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set and glued down my Orangesicle Trendy Twine.


After putting on all the paper layers, I glued on my pumpkin and my sequins the mixes.  I wanted some brown and some orange so using Chocolate Truffles and the Autumn Sequins together worked out well!

Have a great day!

Christmas Treats with Annie's Paper Boutique

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Gals are showcasing some of the Christmas stamps today over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. All stamps are on sale so its a great time to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique and do a little shopping on Cyber Monday.



These are some quick and easy treats you can make. I put some white chocolate Reese's Trees in the bags because my coworkers are crazy for them.  I picked out my stamps from This is December and This is December #2 and lined them up on my Cranberry Tag-It.  Then I used a stamp positioner so that I could keep them in the same place for all the tags I needed to stamp. I added some of the white and green sequins from the Candy Cane Mix and then my Christmas Mint Trendy Page Dot.


 To finish it off, I punched two holes and threaded my Candy Cane Trendy Twine through them and tied a knot. I then tied my tag onto it with a bow.

Be sure to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique and check out the sale!

Have a happy Monday!!

Happy Birthday Leslie!!

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Gals and guest designers have a special post today to say Happy Birthday to our leader Lesley! She has created all these fun products that we love to use.

I sent her this Hello Kitty Card.  The image is from Cricut and I printed, then cut it out.  The twine is Strawberry Cupcake (I use this one a lot).  It's glued all around the over and finished with a bow.  I used Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems and a sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set.

Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the cards that were made for Lesley!

 
 



Happy Birthday Lesley!!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Turkey Treat Box

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, we are featuring the Mini Take-Out Boxes and Orangesicle Trendy Twine. I also used the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp SetWhite Tag-Its, the Autumn Sequin Mix and a Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dot.

I had this idea to make the Mini Take-Out Box into a turkey. I found the cut file on Cricut Design Space. The feathers are glued to the back and I cut a slit in the front to slip the turkey head in.  I think it's fun!


Next, I stamped my sentiment from Happy Thanksgiving onto my White Tag-It. I added my Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dot and the Autumn Sequins.  Lastly, I wrapped my Orangesicle Trendy Twine around the box a few times and tied my tag on with a bow.


I just love Orangesicle Trendy Twine and it's so perfect for fall and for summer 😊 Make sure to pick some up if you don't have any yet!

Have a great day!

Memory Keeping with Annie's Paper Boutique

Happy Halloween!

Today the Trendy Gals are featuring the memory keeping stamps: 

I used stamps from all fours sets on my planner pages.  

These are my planner pages for last week.  I can't write everything in there to show people, but work was a bit stressful.  The stamps help show that.


Monday's I'm always tired, but really it's practically every day :) And we actually had Taco Tuesday and my son even ate at the table with us LOL! I had some food washi tape that I got this summer at Michaels that was perfect for these pages.


I love all the arrows that go along with the Documenting sets.  They are fun to add with the sayings.  The weekend was so busy for me.  We are three weeks in our new house and I really wanted my craft room painted before I get it all settled.  You can see some of the things I was feeling.


Here's the start of this week.  


It is my birthday so I went with birthday washi for today instead of Halloween.  I like to keep it separate as much as I can LOL!


There's still lots to get settled in our house so I'm sure the rest of the week will fill up.  Remember to turn your clocks back Saturday night :)


You can see how fun all four sets are to use in your planner.  Be sure to check out the deals that are being offered today.  And check out Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine to see the scrapbook pages the other gals made for today!
