Trendy Twine -- Miss You!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. Today, I made a card for you using In the Navy Trendy Twine.  I have not used this twine enough and really look forward to playing with it all month long.


I used an anchor cut from my Cricut to start with.  It had a 'rope' cut out on top that I thought would be a perfect place to use my In the Navy Trendy Twine.  I glued down four rows onto the rope cut and used some clear Wink of Stellar on the anchor.


Then I found the perfect paper for this project--the anchor paper was even the right color!! I added a white base with a wavy die cut border so you could definitely see the pattern paper.  It needed something else so I also glued my In the Navy twine to the bottom of the border and added a bow.  To finish it off, I added clear gems for some sparkle.


Have a wonderful day!!

Trendy Twine -- Have a Happy Day!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.


I've made a quick card to show you today. First, I picked out this candy jar cut from my Cricut Design Space.  I knew I wanted to use something pink or blue to go with my Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.  This is a print them cut and I was excite to see that it had layers that you could cut too.  So I let it print and cut the three big candy pieces that I pop doted on for some dimension.


Next, I cut out the oval shape and glued my twine around. I like to to that to make the twine really part of the card.  I stamped the sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set that you can find in the store.  The I pop dotted my candy jar onto it.  The sequins came from two mixes -- Frosty Sequins and  Raspberry Cupcake Sequins. If you don't have the colors you need in one, it doesn't hurt to use two :)

And there you have a quick and simple card!


Have a Happy Day!

Trendy Twine -- Hello Sweetie!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I am loving the twine this month -- Bubblegum Taffy!  It's so pretty :)  


I started with a small white bag.  Since I wanted to stamp and color a bit at the bottom, I slid a piece of white cardstock in the back before doing that.  The stamps are from the Foodies stamp set.  I picked out the candy bar stamp since I put some of the small Hershey's Bars in the bag. 


Next I folded over the top to back and punched two holes and added some Pink Polka Dot Trendy Page Dots to the bag. Then I threaded my Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine through a few times and tied a bow.  To finish it off, I stamped the Hello sweetie from the You & Me Planner set and another candy stamp to a Pink Tag It.  I added another Pink Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot, some blue sequins from the Frosty Sequin Mix, and a bit more Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.  I just taped it to the front.

This makes a cute and quick gift for someone sweet!

Be sure to head over to the blog to see all the sweet projects all month long!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy 4th of July!

Hello and Happy 4th of July!! A few of the Trendy Gals made some patriotic projects for today.  

My card uses a print then cut from my Cricut.  I thought this cut was so cute!  Originally, I was going to use this on a clear treat box.  But I didn't have any candy lying around for that.  So I made a card instead. 


I used the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around my fun star paper.  Then I die cut the rectangle and pop dotted my die cut onto that.  Last, but not least I added some fun silver, red, and blue star sequins.  I do love that there are different sized stars in the mix.

Be sure to visit the blog for the other project!


Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy 4th

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up with Trendy Twine today.  I'm sharing a 4th of July card with you.  I'm loving the Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine.  I also used the Happy stamp from the Feeling Happy Planner Stamp set.


For my card, I cut out the oval with a manual die and the 4th of July with the star from my Cricut.  I glued my Berries Jubilee around the oval.  Next I stamped the Happy stamp from the Feeling Happy stamp set before pop dotting the 4th of July down.  I really like the way it turned out. 


I added the bow of twine and thought I needed some sparkle.  So I grabbed a blue Nuvo Glitter Marker. Wow, that made it sparkle -- LOL!  I had not used them before so I didn't know how glittery it would get :)
