Trendy Twine -- Happy Birthday Lesley!

Hello everyone!  Tomorrow is Lesley Ann's birthday--she is the fabulous lady in charge of Trendy Twine and Annie's Paper Boutique.  Happy Birthday Lesley!!

The design team and a few guests made cards for Lesley and they are all posted over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Mine will be there after she sees this :)


I am loving llama lately and made it a theme for the package I sent. This llama is from my Cricut.  I flattened the image and turned it into a print then cut.  That is so fun to do :) I added some Clear Wink of Stella to some of the spots on the die cut.


Next, I used an oval die to make my top layer.  I stamped the sentiment from Smile Stamp set and then glued my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the over and added a bow.  Then I added a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins too.  

I hope Lesley enjoys all the fun today and has a very Happy Birthday!!

Trendy Twine -- Hello Coffee

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today's project is a decorated coffee cup. We have some fun new Kraft Cup Sleeves in the store to play with!


To start, I used one of the cute leaf stamps from the Hello Fall Stamp Set and stamped it all over the Kraft Cup Sleeve.  Then, I slipped it onto the cup and wrapped my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine around it a few times. I decided to slip in a Wooden Spoon so I tied if off to that to hold it in place.


Since I was using a Mango (Light Orange) Tag-it, I decided to add it to the top of the spoon and add my bow of twine there.  I did pop tape the tag to the spoon to help hold it in place.


The Tag-It has a Trendy Page Dot on it and the sentiment is from the Smile Stamp Set and I added a leaf to that cut from my Cricut. To finish it off, I added a few Autumn Sequins.

This is a reusable cup so will make a cute gift!

Annie's Paper Boutique Cup of Holiday Cheer

Hello everyone!  Today we are showcasing the fabulous little Mini Cups that are back in stock in the store.  They are so fun!



I made a mini coffee sleeve from a file I had in my Cricut software.  I used some fun red foil striped paper that went great with my Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine. This is a pretty easy and quick gift :)


The stamp is from the Merry Christmas Stamp Set.  I just added one Peppermint Stick Sequin to each circle--I didn't want to add too much.  Then I wrapped my Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine around the lid rim and tied a bow.

Make sure to head over to Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fun cups the DT made!  And be sure to head to Annie's Paper Boutique for all these fun goodies plus more :)



Have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Twine and Sequins

Hello everyone! There are four new sequin mixes that just released today over at Annie's Paper Boutique and are featured on Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. The Trendy Gals are each featuring a different mix and I'm here to showcase Blue Berry Sequins. The sequins all have a coordinating Trendy Twine and mine is, of course, Blue Berry 😃


I made a snowflake shaker card.  The Blue Berry Sequins and Blue Berry Trendy Twine were perfect for a winter themed card. The snowflakes were cut using my Cricut.  I picked out one snowflake and arranged it in different sizes on the card front.  


I used foam tape cut in small strips to section off the snowflakes.  I poured sequins in each snowflake and carefully turned it over to keep them in the right place.  The front also was cut with a border die so you could see the pattern paper on the bottom.


The stamp is from the Let It Snow Christmas Stamp Set.  It was perfect for this card.  Then I added my Twine and some extra sequins to finish it off. 

All the new sequins are so beautiful! Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fabulous projects the design team made and all the beautiful new sequins.  And then visit Annie's Paper Boutique to pick some of them up 😄



Have a Happy Halloween!!

Trendy Twine -- Batty For You

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's finally a bit cooler here in Georgia and it's almost Halloween!  What a fun time of year.

Today, I made a shaker card using my Lime Licorice Trendy Twine along with the Lime Licorice Batty Sequins and the Happy Halloween Stamp set


I used a circle die to cut out the center of my pattern paper and my Cricut to cut out the black back circle.  That cut is for pumpkin carving but it's perfect for a cover for the shaker card 😃


I glued my Lime Licorice Trendy Twine around the outside of the circle, added a bow and sparkled up the bats.  Then I found a small tag die to stamp my sentiment on from Happy Halloween.  I used the Lime Licorice Batty Sequins for my shaker mix along with some small and bigger glitter to match the sequins.  And I added two bats to the front label which I did use small pop dots on.

You still have time to shop for Halloween goodies at Annie's Paper Boutique
Be sure to stop by and shop!

Happy Birthday Balloon Card -- WCMD 2017

This is my fourth card for World Card Making Day.  I'm entering it in three challenges:



I used MFT Stitched Oval and Up in the Air stamps and dies.

I'm trying to make birthday cards if I can this weekend since I always need them :)
