Trendy Bakers Twine -- Salty & Sweet Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine.  Is anyone else going crazy trying to finish last minute gifts and cards besides me?  I haven't mailed one card and have been trying to get some treats for coworkers finished for this week.


This weekend I made some quick chocolate covered pretzels and added a Cranberry Tag-It with Peppermint Twist Trendy Twine for some fast treats to pass out at work.


I used some pretzel bags that I had in the house and wrapped my Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine around it.  I stamped my sentiment from This is December #2 stamp set onto a Cranberry Tag-it.  Next, I added a Candy Cane Trendy Page Dot and some Peppermint Stick Sequins to the tag.  Finally, I tied it to the top with a bow.

Life is crazy, so treats need to be easy LOL!
Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Be Merry!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, the Trendy Gals are spotlighting Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.  I also used the Small Pillow Boxes, the Merry & Bright Stamp Set, and Peppermint Stick Sequins


I filled my Small Pillow Boxes with my Christmas M&M's.  Then I wrapped my Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine around the box like a package and made a knot.  Then I used a tag die to cut out the tag, stamp Be Merry from the Merry & Bright Stamp Set onto it, and I added a sequin to each tag from the Peppermint Stick Sequins.  I just finished it off by tying the tag onto the box and finishing it off with a bow.


Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thankful for You

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a card to share with you featuring Orangesicle Trendy Twine and the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp set, and I used some sequins from Chocolate Truffles and the Autumn Sequins mixes.


I picked a pumpkin from my Cricut Design Space and made it a print then cut.  Then I cut out a the white layer with a die to make the wavy border.  Next I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set and glued down my Orangesicle Trendy Twine.


After putting on all the paper layers, I glued on my pumpkin and my sequins the mixes.  I wanted some brown and some orange so using Chocolate Truffles and the Autumn Sequins together worked out well!

Have a great day!

Christmas Treats with Annie's Paper Boutique

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Gals are showcasing some of the Christmas stamps today over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. All stamps are on sale so its a great time to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique and do a little shopping on Cyber Monday.



These are some quick and easy treats you can make. I put some white chocolate Reese's Trees in the bags because my coworkers are crazy for them.  I picked out my stamps from This is December and This is December #2 and lined them up on my Cranberry Tag-It.  Then I used a stamp positioner so that I could keep them in the same place for all the tags I needed to stamp. I added some of the white and green sequins from the Candy Cane Mix and then my Christmas Mint Trendy Page Dot.


 To finish it off, I punched two holes and threaded my Candy Cane Trendy Twine through them and tied a knot. I then tied my tag onto it with a bow.

Be sure to head over to Annie's Paper Boutique and check out the sale!

Have a happy Monday!!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Turkey Treat Box

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, we are featuring the Mini Take-Out Boxes and Orangesicle Trendy Twine. I also used the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp SetWhite Tag-Its, the Autumn Sequin Mix and a Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dot.

I had this idea to make the Mini Take-Out Box into a turkey. I found the cut file on Cricut Design Space. The feathers are glued to the back and I cut a slit in the front to slip the turkey head in.  I think it's fun!


Next, I stamped my sentiment from Happy Thanksgiving onto my White Tag-It. I added my Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dot and the Autumn Sequins.  Lastly, I wrapped my Orangesicle Trendy Twine around the box a few times and tied my tag on with a bow.


I just love Orangesicle Trendy Twine and it's so perfect for fall and for summer 😊 Make sure to pick some up if you don't have any yet!

Have a great day!

Memory Keeping with Annie's Paper Boutique

Happy Halloween!

Today the Trendy Gals are featuring the memory keeping stamps: 

I used stamps from all fours sets on my planner pages.  

These are my planner pages for last week.  I can't write everything in there to show people, but work was a bit stressful.  The stamps help show that.


Monday's I'm always tired, but really it's practically every day :) And we actually had Taco Tuesday and my son even ate at the table with us LOL! I had some food washi tape that I got this summer at Michaels that was perfect for these pages.


I love all the arrows that go along with the Documenting sets.  They are fun to add with the sayings.  The weekend was so busy for me.  We are three weeks in our new house and I really wanted my craft room painted before I get it all settled.  You can see some of the things I was feeling.


Here's the start of this week.  


It is my birthday so I went with birthday washi for today instead of Halloween.  I like to keep it separate as much as I can LOL!


There's still lots to get settled in our house so I'm sure the rest of the week will fill up.  Remember to turn your clocks back Saturday night :)


You can see how fun all four sets are to use in your planner.  Be sure to check out the deals that are being offered today.  And check out Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine to see the scrapbook pages the other gals made for today!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Bewitched Halloween

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I'm sharing a bewitching Halloween card with you. I used the fabulous Gray Licorice Trendy Twine on it and some black sequins from the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins Mix.
 

I made this card way back in September because we moved October 5th.  And my room is still not unpacked so it was a good idea to have this ready LOL! (I did find my box of Trendy Twine though!)  The paper came from a Halloween stack and the spiders, tomb and stamp are from My Creative Time. I did add clear Wink of Stella to the spiders.


I carefully glued my Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around my tomb and added a bow.  I wanted to add the twine to the part of the web the spider is hanging from too, but it was too small and was not working for me. Then I added some black sequins from the Grape Licorice Batty Sequins to the middles of some of the webs.  

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Spooky Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  This month, we are featuring Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and the Skinny Candy Chutes.  I made these fun treats and also used some bats from one of the Batty Sequin Mixes.


I used some Halloween M&M's to fill my Skinny Candy Chutes.  Then I cut out the tombstone from My Creative Time Dies and used a stamp that goes with them.  


I just added a small, cute bow of my Gray Licorice Trendy Twine to the top of the tombstone.  It needed something else so I grabbed one of the Batty Sequin Mixes to pull out some bats.  I love those bat sequins 😍


Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Many Thanks!

Hello everyone! I'm over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today showcasing the Totally Kraft Trendy Twine.  I just love this for fall so I made a fall thank you card.


I used this cute acorn from my Cricut.  I used print then cut and added some clear Wink of Stella to it. Then I decided to cut an oval shape to put it in with my sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set.  It's perfect for a fall thank you.


I glued my Totally Kraft Trendy Twine around the oval and added the bow. And lastly, I added a few sequins from the Autumn Sequin Mix.  A perfect finish to the card!

Be sure to stop back for more fun projects!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- So Thankful

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  This month we are featuring Totally Kraft Trendy Twine and the Kraft Mini Seed Packets.  I also used the Happy Thanksgiving an Hello Fall Stamp Sets on today's project. These seed packets are so cute! You can buy just the envelopes or envelopes with cards.


I wanted to add a bit of color so I used an orange Zig Clean Color Marker that I used water with to flick the color on the envelopes with a paintbrush. Then I stamped the sentiment from Happy Thanksgiving at the top of the envelope.


The acorn and leaf is cut from my Cricut using print then cut. Then I added a bow of Totally Kraft Trendy Twine around the acorn stem and pop dotted it to the envelope.  


I stamped the cute acorn from Hello Fall on the top corner of the matching card and left the rest blank for my note.  I also tucked in two Life Saver Candies.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- You're Sweet

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine.  Today I made a cute card using Cherry Limeade Trendy Twine and some Twisted Lime and Peppermint Stick Sequins.


The cute cherries are a Hello Kitty cut from my Cricut.  I cut out my top white layer and added my Cherry Limeade Trendy Twine at the bottom and added two small bows on each side. 

I used some pop dots to add my cherries.  The last touch was the sequins -- green from Twisted Lime and red from Peppermint Stick.  It's always fun to mix and match.

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- Sweet as a Cherry

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I am showcasing Cherry Limeade Trendy Twine and the Short Candy Bags.  I also used White Tag It's, some red sequins from the Holly Berry Mix, and Christmas Mint Trendy Page Dots.


I found the cherry candies and just knew that they would be so cute in a clear bag and would be perfect with the twine. I stamped my sentiment on the Tag It and added a few red sequins from Holly Berry and put on a red Christmas Mint Trendy Page Dot.


Next I loaded the candy into the Short Candy Bag and wrapped my Cherry Limeade Trendy Twine around and tied on the tag by finishing with a bow.  These are super easy to make a bunch at one time!

Have a wonderful day!

Congratulations to Beth!

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Twine Design Team (current and alumni) and some of this year's guest designers are posting today to send love to Beth to celebrate the birth of her baby girl Autumn! We created cards to send her with our best wishes.

I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine for my card.


The cute baby toy is an image from Cricut Design Space.  I flattened it so I could print it, then cut it out.  It makes it so easy! I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the antenna, eyes, mouth, and dots at the bottom.  Then on the eyes, I added dots of glossy accents.


 I glued my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the oval cut out and added my bow. Then I pop dotted the oval and the baby toy onto my card base. 


Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see all the cards and congratulate Beth!  I hope she enjoys all the posts and the cards when she gets them 😊


Have a fabulous day!
