Trendy Twine -- Birthdays Are Better with Chocolate

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today, I made a card using Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine.  

Since it's all about chocolate this month, what's better than a chocolate cake for a birthday?  I print then cut this cute chocolate cake from my Cricut.  I added some clear Wink of Stella onto the die cut and pop dotted it onto the white layer.  


I used an edge die on the white layer so that you could see some of the pretty brown pattern paper I used.  These dies always cut a line above the pattern so I glued my Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine on that.  I do love how that looks!  I finished with the little bow at the top.
  

After everything was assembled, I added some brown self-stick pearls.  Someone at work had a birthday so it has already been given to her and she loved it! It's always great when people appreciate hand made cards :)

Trendy Twine -- Dropping By!

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine.  For today's project, I used the Twine of the Month, Chocolate TruffleMedium Clear Pillow Boxes, the Smile & Foodies Planner Stamp Sets, a white Tag-It and a Trendy Page Dot.


The clear boxes are just so fun! It really does not take much to dress them up.  This time, I cut some pattern paper about 2 1/2 inches wide and wrapped it around.  Then, I wrapped my Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine around the other way.  


For the tag, I inked the edges with some brown ink and stamped the sentiment and cute little candy bar. I added some silver to the ends of the candy with a glitter pen and a few stick on gems.  Before tying the bow, I added a Chevron Page Dot to match the twine.

Trendy Twine -- Halloween Take-Out Treats

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  It's a three-day weekend, but I made it into four :)  And we have a fun new product to show you today -- Kraft Mini Take-Out Boxes.  


The design team made some fun Halloween treat boxes with them and the cute Mini Wooden Scoops.  Here's my project.


I covered the sides with some fun Halloween paper from DCWV.  Then I die cut some spiders out of black cardstock.  I used my clear Wink of Stella over the spiders to give them some sparkle.


Next I grabbed my Orange Licorice Trendy Twine and wrapped it under the top flap so that I could attach my wooden scoop to the box.  


For the top, I added two more spiders and a few orange sequins from the Autumn Sequins Mix.  I just cut some black and white cardstock and stamped my sentiment from the Happy Halloween Stamp Set.

Be sure to head over the Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the rest of the design team's boxes--they are amazing!


Have a fabulous weekend!

Trendy Twine -- Happy Candy Boxes

Hello everyone.  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I have some super quick and easy treat boxes.  I used In the Navy Trendy Twine, Chocolate Boxes, and the Fun in the Sun Printable.


This are so easy to make!  I didn't start out with a project so simple, but I knew I wanted to use these fun printables.  Then I ended up with the clear Chocolate boxes and my In the Navy Twine.


The candy inside the boxes are Whopper candies.  You can get a box for a dollar at Walmart. It will fill three maybe four boxes with the $1 purchase--I'm not sure since I was eating them as I was filling the two I made :)


I just doubled up my In the Navy Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the box and added my tags.  Makes a super cute treat to pass out to friends.

I could have added some bling, but I do like to make some things pretty simple sometimes.  And the clear boxes are just so fun that I don't like to over decorate them.

Please keep Texas in your prayers. Annie's Paper Boutique is closed this week due to the flooding rains there.  Be sure to order when it's up and running again!

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 :)

Trendy Twine -- Happy Father's Day!

Hello everyone and Happy Father's Day!  The Trendy Gals made some projects for dad today.


I made a quick card from my Cricut.  All cuts, including the card base are cut out from there.  I added the Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine to the end of my tag. It's not just for fall :)


I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the stars.  Not sure you can see that too well though.  And I used dimensional tape to put the tag on.  It was pretty simple and quick to put together.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Father's Day!


Don't forget, I'm giving away a Berries Jubilee Mini this month.  Commenting on this post counts as an entry :)
