Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sunshine Treats

Hello! I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I made some quick treats to show you.  I used Orange Limeade Trendy TwineOrange and Green Chevron Treat BagsChoose Happy Stamp SetWhite Tag-Its and some Trendy Page Dots.


These Chevron Treat Bags would be great with some homemade cookies in them. I didn't have any of those so I put small Hershey Bars in them LOL! They really are good for any kind of treat. Next, I folded the top and punched two holes for my Orange Limeade Trendy Twine.


I used a die to cut out a sun and stamped the Hello Sunshine from the Choose Happy Stamp Set in the middle.  Then I used dimensional tape to put it on the White Tag It. I added my Trendy Page Dots and added to my bags tied with a bow.


Have a fabulous day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending You Sunshine!

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up with Trendy Twine using the Orange Limeade Trendy Twine and a few Twisted Lime Sequins.


This was an easy card to make.  I did a print then cut image on my Criut.  Then I just added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the sun rays. Then I picked a lime green cardstock and an orange pattern paper than I stamped my sentiment directly on with black ink.  


I wrapped my Orange Limeade Trendy Twine around the top base and added a bow.  The cute sun is on with foam tape for some dimension. Lastly, I added a few Twisted Lime Sequins.

Have a fabulous day!

MFT Summer School -- Complimentary Colors


I didn't have much in the way of MFT Stamps that would work well with this lesson.  So I used paper mostly to show my colors orange and blue.  I used MFT Musical Dies cut out in blue and a MFT Stamp to show my orange in the sentiment.  The scallop mat is from MFT Blueprints 1.

(not the best picture, but it's late)

This is has been a lot of fun!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- Repetition

Hello!  Here is my card for My Favorite Things Summer School -- Repetition.  I'm hopeful to get the last two days done too :)


I used MFT Full of Sunshine Stamp set, Hello Die-namics, and the Radiant Sun Die-Namic.  The ink is also MFT Pineapple Hybrid Ink.  

The sunshine die has foam tape to give the card some dimension.  For the hello, I added clear Wink of Stella and then covered it all with Glossy Accents.  I haven't used that in a while and love the way it turned out.

Have a great day!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- Primary Colors

Hello!  This is day 2 of My Favorite Things Summer School -- Primary Colors.

I used the MFT Penguins in Paradise Stamps.  The dies that I have with this set are not the open dies.  So I fussy cut my images. I really should have die cut, then stamped and colored but I forgot that's what these dies were and had already colored.  


I did use Copic Markers except for the black.  I don't own a lot and black is not one I have. The black is a Zig Clean Color marker.

Three more lessons to go and I hope I have have time to finish before the 12th!  Unfortunately, I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Have a great day!

MFT Stamps Summer School -- White Space



Hello all!  I'm playing along with My Favorite Things Summer School.  This is Session 1 and the first lesson was White Space.


I do not usually have this much white space, so it was a good challenge for me.  Not sure I like it very much but I wanted to try it out and this is what I came up with.

I used MFT Hog Heaven Stamps and dies.  Then I used the Stitched Dome STAX a banner from Blueprints 13 Dies.  The cute pink gems are the Pink Diamonds from Annie's Paper Boutique :)

There's four more lessons I'll be posting this weekend I hope!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Celebrate!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month, we are featuring Orange Limeade Trendy Twine and the Cotton Muslin Bags.  I also used an Orange Tag-It, a Lime Chevron Trendy Page Dot, and some Twisted Lime Sequins.

I decided to stamp on my Cotton Muslim Bag.  I used a stamp platform so I could stamp several times to make sure the color is good.  It took about three times each to get a good image.  I used an orange ink and a lime green ink to match the twine. This is a very easy way to decorate these bags!


After I put some candy in the bag, I tied my Orange Limeade Trendy Twine around the top.  Then, I pulled out and Orange Tag-It and cut it down.  I wanted all the Celebrate sentiments to show. And then I stamped my other sentiment and added a few Twisted Lime Sequins.


This is a quick and easy little gift--you can add a gift card in here along with candy!

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Twine -- Celebrate You!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine and today I'm sharing a fun card using Totally Blue Trendy Twine and several sequins mixes.  I really LOVE how this card turned out!!

 I've had this pinata die from My Favorite Things since May.  I've totally been wanting to use it and the Totally Blue Trendy Twine was perfect for the 'string' to hang it from.  The die cutout has a cardstock base and all the layers are cut out of crepe paper, except for the eye, that's cardstock.


Next, I glued my Totally Blue Trendy Twine to the back of the pinata and hooked it over the back and taped it down, and added a bow. I attached the pinata to the card front with dimensional tape. 


Lastly, I added my sentiment and added colorful sequins around.  The sequins came from the following:  Blue Berry, Grape Fizz, Lemon Tart, Rapsberry Cupcake, and Twisted Lime.  I love how fun they all go together and should mix them up more often LOL!

I hope you have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Twine & Mini Popcorn Boxes

Happy Father's Day!  
The Trendy Gals are showcasing the new Mini Popcorn Boxes today.  

I picked the Lemon Mini Popcorn Box and paired it with Dark Citrus Trendy Twine.  I also used the Choose Happy Stamp Set, a Navy Tag-It and some Lemon Tart Sequins.


These are just the cutest little boxes!  I had some small stamps on my desk and realized this cute pineapple stamp would be the perfect size for the Mini Popcorn Box.  I stamped and dies cut four of them and pop dotted them to all the sides of the box.


Next, I glued a strip of Dark Citrus Trendy Twine around the bottom of the box.  It matches so well.  I wanted to have a sentiment sticking out and starting searching for something that might work.  Then I saw the Navy Tag-It in my stash.  It sticks out just perfectly in the box.  I added the Rock this day from the Choose Happy Stamp Set and some more Dark Citrus Trendy Twine for the tag topper and a few Lemon Tart Sequins.


Make sure to visit Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine today to see all the fun boxes the Trendy Gals made!

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Twine -- Just for You!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have some cute mini cards to share with you.  We are featuring the Totally Blue Trendy Twine along with the Square Glassine Envelopes. I also used the adorable Foodie Planner Stamps, the You've Got Mail Stamps and some Trendy Page Dots to close the envelopes.


I made some some 2x2 cards (approximately).  They were the perfect size to fit into these cute envelopes.  I stamped the cupcake from the Foodie Planner Stamps and the sentiment from the You've Got Mail set.  Then I added my Totally Blue Trendy Twine with a bow.


I slipped the cards into the Square Glassine Envelopes.  I love that you can see the cute card through these fun envelopes


The envelopes don't have a seal so some fun Trendy Page Dots to close them up!


These were so fun to make!  

I hope you have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- You're Incredible!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a card using the Celebration Trendy Twine and some sequins from the Peppermint Icicle and Bumblebee Sequin Mixes.


I had so much fun designing this card.  Since this twine has a Disney vibe, I looked through my Disney images in my Cricut Design Space. These characters have a lot of layers to cut out, but I flattened her and printed and cut her out. Next, I decided I wanted the sentiment to say You're Incredible, so I found a font and had my machine write it on the front with a red glitter pen.


To add in the yellow color from the twine, I cut out a yellow starburst which is also from the same cartridge that Mrs. Incredible is from too.  Then I added my Celebration Trendy Twine above the sentiment and pop dotted up my die cuts.


The last touch was to add my sequins.  I pulled out my Bumblebee Sequins for the yellow and black and my Peppermint Icicle Sequins to add some red.

I think this turned out so fun!

Have an incredible day!

When the base was finished cutting, I did cut out the top layer of the die cut diamond.  It fit onto the the cutout very well on top of the acetate. I used my foam tape around the diamond on the back of the base and I filled it with my Pink Diamonds.  


After attaching my top base I added more Pink Diamonds on the front. I made a pattern on the sides and added some to the top corners.  Lastly, I added some Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine to the bottom and tied a bow.

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  This month we are featuring Celebration Trendy Twine and the Clear Pillow Boxes.  I used the Medium Clear Pillow Boxes for today's post. Additionally, I used White Tag-ItsChoose Happy Stamp set, and Bumblebee and Peppermint Stick Sequins.


I had a cute sticker set from Recollections sitting on my table.  I thought they would be perfect for the colors in the twine.  Bonus--they are scratch and sniff stickers!  That was a surprise when I opened them. 


Next I stamped my sentiments on my White Tag Its from the Choose Happy Stamp Set.  Then I added some yellow and black sequins from the Bumblebee Sequins Mix and red sequins from the Peppermint Stick Sequins Mix.


After filling the Medium Clear Boxes with candy, I wrapped my Celebration Trendy Twine around the box long ways a few times and tied a knot.  Then I tied on my Celebration pom poms that I made for this.


I just love these clear boxes -- they are so fun to fill and add some decorations to! 

Have a great day!
