Trendy Bakers Twine -- XO OX Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's finally February!  January really did seem like a very long month.  It didn't help that it rained a lot where I live.  This month, the Trendy Gals are showcasing Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I also used Candy Cubes 2x2 Boxes and the Smile Stamp Set.


I have these cute buffalo plaid SVG files that I just got last week.  They go perfectly with our Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine!  The original plan was to just put them on the box, but I wanted them to pop.  So I wrapped a 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock around the box after wrapping my Twine around the box a few times.


Next, I put foam tape on all the pieces.  Even the tiny heart.  It was thing pieces of tape! There's an XO and OX on each box.


To finish it off, I cut a small tag from a die I have and stamped the Smile from the Smile Stamp Set onto it and punched a hole.  Then I slipped it through one of the pieces of twine and finished it off with a box.  I also added a small red enamel dot that I just picked up this weekend.  I love craft shopping for February!
Hope you have a great day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- That's the Point

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine. I'm back again with Totally White Trendy Twine.  Today, I made some pencil treats to show you.  I used the Skinny Candy BagsChoose Happy Stamp SetTag-It'sRaspberry Cupcake SequinsBlue Berry Sequins, and Lemon Tart Sequins.

I got these cute pencils in the check out line at Michael's.  The sayings were cute and I matched up some similar ones in each bag. I cut down the Tag-It's so that the sayings on the pencils would be seen and I picked out sentiments from the Choose Happy Stamp Set that kind of matched the pencils.


I tried to find matching Tag-It's but didn't have one of these pencil colors in my stash.  So I went with a pink one.  (Lavender would have been perfect!) I used Blue Berry Sequins to accent this one.


This is a Lemon Tag-It.  I then used some Lemon Tart Sequins too.


This one is a darker pink Tag-It but I don't see it in the store.  It was probably a different pink cardstock at one point.  I used Raspberry Cupcake sequins. I loved that the sentiment matched the one pencil!


These were fun to make and will be fun to give!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Birthday Panda

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have a Clean and Simple card to show you today.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine and the black and while sequins from Lemon Midnight Sequins.

I am not one to make a card with no layers.  This is not usually LOL!  But I loved the simplicity of the black and white on the kraft cardstock.  It's my year to try new things I guess!


I used a cute little panda from Lawn Fawn called Party Panda.  I die cut him out and his cute little cupcake.  Then I wrapped my Totally White Trendy Twine around the card twice and tied a knot in the middle.  I pop dotted the panda and cupcake above the knot. 


I'm not the best at placing my Lemon Midnight Sequins 'randomly' like some people are.  But I think the card still turned out cute

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- XOXO Treats

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine today. I hope your new year is off to a good start! I've been crafting a lot so I think it's pretty good for me in that area LOL!

Our Twine of the Month is Totally White Trendy Twine. You can color this with Copics but I love the bright white and it paired really nicely with the Kraft Treat Packet I used. I also used  the You & Me Planner Stamps.


I just wrapped my Totally White Trendy Twine around the front of the Kraft Treat Packet. I did use some tape on the other side to make sure it stayed in place with the angle going up. Then I just made little knots at at angle too. I liked this look.


I stamped the cute You & Me Planner Stamps in White Pigment ink onto the flap.  I thought I would need to heat set, but I only had clear and the pigment ink dried really well on the kraft which I was happy about!

Inside the plastic bag that comes with the packet are red only M&M's. So this would definitely work as a Valentine's treat.

Have a great day!

Just for Ewe

Hello everyone!  Day 2 of the new year and I've made a card two days in a row!  It did help that I had an extra sheep already colored from my creating yesterday LOL!


This is for the new MFT Sketch Challenge.  I hope to make at least one more for it as I'm liking the sketch and maybe I can get in my craft room before the deadline next week :)

I used MFT Stitched Dome STAX, Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips, Ewe and Me Forever Stamps and Dies, and the Candy Land 6x6 Paper Pack.

I also used some Twisted Lime and Raspberry Cupcake Sequins from Annie's Paper Boutique

Have a wonderful day!
