I found this image in Cricut Design Space as a print then cut. It was really my third image as my machine did not like the first two. It would have been more of a Thanksgiving card had I got one of the others to work LOL. I put foam tape on the die cut and added it to my white layer that I glued my Totally Pumpkin Trendy Twine on to.
To tie it all together, I found this paper that matched the leaves pretty well from a DCWV stack. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink and added some of the fun Autumn Sequins to the card along with a Totally Pumpkin Trendy Twine bow to the bunch of leaves.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving however you are spending it. Ours does look different this year just as the whole year has.

Hello everyone! The Trendy Gals and Guest Designers are celebrating Lesley's birthday today!!
I picked out this cute Hello Kitty from Cricut Design Space and used some shades of pink. I also used some Clear Wink of Stella on some parts of the die cut. Next I die cut my white top layer with fun edge die and glued down my Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine along the edge and added a bow to the corner.
I adhered my layers, added my sentiment and pop dotted my die cut on top. Then to finish it off, I added some Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems.
Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the fabulous birthday cards and to wish Lesley a Happy Birthday!!
Have a fabulous day!

First, I decorated my Kraft Tin Tie Bag while it was flat. This is perfect to do that. I used some fall leaves I cut out with my Cricut on glitter cardstock. I also die cut some fall paper with a banner die and staggered them on the side.
Next, I filled my bag with some candy, but they would be perfect for baked goods like homemade cookies. I then used my Totally Pumpkin Trendy Twine to loop around the top a few times and tie off with a bow.
Pretty simple but I like how it turned out.
Have a great day!

Hello Trendy Twine fans! Welcome to the first day of October. The design team is so excited to be crafting for the upcoming holidays, that we decided to have a guest design team group join in all the fun! Today we are having a group post with both the regular design team AND the guest design team to get the creativity flowing for the Halloween season. Please join us in welcoming the amazing guest designers! Be sure to hop over to the Trendy Twine blog to see the projects from all of the Trendy Twine Gals!
My Trendy Twine color is Grape Licorice and we are all using the Clear Mini Take Out Boxes. In addition, I used the Happy Halloween Stamp Set, Grape Tag-Its, Grape Licorice Batty Sequins and Trendy Page Dots.
I filled my boxes with 5 mini Peppermint Patties. They were a perfect fit for the Clear Mini Take Out Boxes and I they were purple wrapped to match my twine. Next I made a band around the box. It's not perfect in the back, but I made it work 😉
Next, I trimmed down my Grape Tag-Its a bit and stamped and embossed my sentiment from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set on it. Then I added my Trendy Page Dots and the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins. Finally, I made a Grape Licorice Trendy Twine tail for the tag.
Please be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the projects from the Design Team and the Guest Designers!
Have a great day!

I used a fun autumn stamp set from My Favorite Things and colored the pumpkins orange and teal for my fall colors. Next, I stamped the sentiment on the oval die cut and glued down my Twisted Teal Trendy Twine around it and added the bow.
Then I used foam tape to adhere the oval and the pumpkins on the oval. Lastly, I finished it off with some fall enamel dots to match my colors.
Have a great day!
