Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thinking of You

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I have a quick and simple card to share with you today.  I used Cotton Candy Trendy Twine along with some Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry Sequins.


I made this card on my Cricut.  It was a pre-designed card but it had a different sentiment to write out.  I changed it to the Thinking of You and picked a cute font.  It cut out all the pieces and wrote it in a black pen. 


I decided to add another layer under the pattern paper I picked out. My Cotton Candy Trendy Twine is wrapped around a few times and then tied in a bow.  Then I put it on with foam tape to pop it up a bit. I added the Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry sequins and then decided to outline the words with some fun Wink of Stella pens.  I love to add sparkle :)

Have a fabulous day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending Smiles

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have some cute little treats to show you today.  We are featuring Cotton Candy Trendy Twine and the 2x2 Candy Cubes. I love these little cubes and use them a lot.


I filled my 2x2 Candy Cube with some pink and blue Hershey Kisses to go along with my Trendy Twine.  Then I took a small strip of pink and white polka dot paper around the outside.  Next I wrapped my Cotton Candy Trendy Twine around the other side of the box.


I took a Pink Tag-It and a White Tag-It and cut them down a bit to fit on the box without hanging over and then just rounded the corners that I cut. The stamp is from the You've Got Mail Stamp Set and I added some pink sequins from the Raspberry Cupcake Sequin Mix and some blue from the Blue Berry Sequin Mix.  I also used a Sky Blue and White Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot on the Tag-Its.

Have a wonderful day filled with smiles!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- A Little Cup of Spring

Happy Easter! 

The Trendy Gals made some cute Mini Cup Easter Treats to show you today and I'm here with mine.


I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and some Raspberry Cupcake Sequins on my Mini Cup.  The Twine is wrapped around the cup and then I put my stamped and die cut image over top of that.


I used these cute Peep stamps from Simon Says Stamps.  Then I punched out a circle for the top and stamped the Happy Easter from a My Creative Time set onto it.  It needed a few Raspberry Cupcake sequins and some more Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the lid with a small bow.


Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the what the other Design Team Gals made--they are so cute!

Have a wonderful Easter!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Easter Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a super quick treat to show you.  I used the new Treat Packets in Spring Green and Pink. I don't think the pink are in the store yet, but I made them both so I decided to show them both.  I also used Twisted Lime and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.


I really did keep these simple.  I didn't have a tiny Easter stamp to use on a small tag, so I pulled up a tag on my Cricut and had it write Happy Easter in a cute font and with my new Glitter Gel Pens. 


I filled my treat bags with some pink jelly beans and taped it inside the treat cover.  Then I just wrapped my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the Pink Treat Packet and added my tag with the pink writing.  And the Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine went on Spring Green Treat Packet with the pink writing tag. 


I think these would be very cute embossed but I didn't try that today.  These Treat Packets would be great to keep on hand for small treats and gifts.  Be sure to check them out in the store!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Flower Birthday

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a quick card I made using  Twisted Lime Trendy Twine and the Twisted Lime Sequins.


This is a pretty simple card.  It was a pre-designed card on Cricut Design Space but with a shamrock.  I went with a flower instead since we are past St. Patrick's Day.  Besides the flower, I changed up the location of the squares so I could put my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine at the bottom and to add a stamped sentiment.


There are two flowers one on top of the other.  The top flower is curled a bit and I inked the edges. And there are pop dots in between to give a it of dimension.  I finished it off by adding some Twisted Lime Sequins.

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Lucky Treat

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  This month we are featuring Twisted Lime Trendy Twine and the new Kraft Window Tubes.

I made a lucky 'pot of gold' treat. First, I stamped on the Kraft Window Tube while it was flat.  I used a St. Patrick's Day stamp set from Unity Stamp Company and colored in the shamrocks with a green marker.  Then I wrapped my Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the bottom of the tube a few times and tied a small bow.  Then I pulled out my Twisted Lime Sequins and added them around the tube a bit. I love that there are matching sequins for some of the twine twists!


After all the decorating, I added my Hershey's Nuggets and mini Resees' Cups and filled my 'pot of gold' Kraft Window Tube.  This tube holds a lot of candy and will make a great treat for my student assistant next week.


There's lots of fun products over at Annie's Paper Boutique.  And the March Treat Packing Bundle is such a great deal! Don't miss out :)

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hello Happy Mail

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and I made a fun purse card to show you today.  I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine the Smile Stamp Set, You've Got Mail Stamp Set, and a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.


The card was a ready to make card in my Cricut Design Space.  Sometimes I like to look through there for some fun projects and this one was so cute!  It was supposed to use a Hello Kitty cut that I didn't own, but I just substituted one that I did own.


This is a purse shape and called for a snap to close it and a chain for the handle.  I couldn't find a snap to work so I used a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins to add to the top for a button look.  And I wanted to use my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine for the handle.  


The instructions said to pop dot the Hello Kitty on the front.  That was a little boring so I glued my twine around the outside of the purse and then added a small banner die cut with the Hello from the Smile set. The design included and envelope which I did cut out and stamped the Happy Mail from the You've Got Mail Stamp set.

This was fun to make and I hope you have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine's Day!

We have a special post today over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.

I got a Cricut Maker for Christmas (Yay!) and I was excited to try cutting felt on it.  I found this file for a heart felt basket and it was perfect to use for today's post.  One of the fun things about Trendy Twine is that you can use it to stitch with too!

I assembled the felt heart and cut out two smaller hearts from a regular heart in Design Space.  Next I grabbed my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and did a blanket stitch around the hear on both sides and on the smaller hearts.  I had to google the blanket stitch and I think I need to work on that!


I glued on the handle with hot glue and then found a button to sew on to have my hearts dangle.  This was so fun to make! I intended to make more than one but time got away from me.


I can't wait to cut more felt with my Maker and use my Trendy Twine to stitch with!

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hello Sweetie!

Hello everyone! Can you believe it's February?! This is such a fun month--I just love all the pink and red that is around since Valentine's Day is coming up. Over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine we are featuring Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and the new Kraft Window Boxes.  I LOVE pink so this is a fun one for me :)


In my 'treat' boxes, I put make-up highlighters -- this is my daughter's favorite kind of 'treat'. She just loves make-up!  Before assembling them, I used the hearts from the You & Me Planner Stamps and stamped the hearts on all sides of the window using a neutral ink.  


I put the highlighter in the box and wrapped my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around both ways to make a cute package.  Then I stamped my White Metal Rim Tags with two sentiments from the You & Me Planner Stamps and tied my bow. I did add a sequin to each tag from the Raspberry Cupcake Sequin Mix.


Have a fabulous day!

Trendy Baker's Twine -- Valentine's Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine again this week to share a really quick Valentine's treat with you.  Everything I used on this (except the candy) you can purchase at Annie's Paper Boutique:  Berry Trendy TwineShorty Candy Chutes, and the Happy Valentine's Day Print and Punch Tags


These are so quick and easy to make!  I printed the Happy Valentine's Day Print and Punch Tags and use a 1 3/4 inch circle punch to punch them out. After filling the Shorty Candy Chutes with Hershey Kisses, I tied my Berry Trendy Twine around a few times then tied a bow.  All that was left was to use a few glue dots to stick my tag on. 


They would be great for school Valentines' or even to give to your own friends or co-workers. You should head over to Annie's paper Boutique to get some boxes, twine and download some Print and Punch Tags.  There are other designs too!


Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- A Little Note

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and I have a snowy card to share with you.  I used Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine and a few white sequins from the Blue Berry Sequin Mix.


The cute stamps are from My Creative Time.  I really wanted to use them and it gave me the chance to use my Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border Dies to make snow piles 😊 I colored my snow people with my Zig Clean Color markers. Before assembling my layers, I found a snowflake embossing folder which was perfect to use on this card!


After putting together the layers, I wrapped my Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine around them and then put the layers on the card base. I then tied a bow and glued it down to the corner.  The snow people are on the card with pop dots.  Finally, I colored a few hearts and glued them down along with some of the white sequins from the Blue Berry Sequins.

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Warm Wishes Treats

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. Today I have a quick treat box to show you using Aqua Midnight Trendy BakersTwineMedium Kraft Pillow BoxesWhite Tag-ItsLet It Snow Stamp SetPink Midnight Trendy Page Dots (Black Polka Dots), and Blue Berry Sequins.


I was able to fit four Snicker Minis in the Medium Kraft Pillow Boxes. Then I cut my pattern paper two inches wide and long enough to go around the middle and tape it to the box.  The Aqua Midnight Trendy Bakers Twine was wrapped around three times the opposite ends of the paper.  


I stamped the sentiment from the Let It Snow Stamp Set onto the White Tag-It and inked the edges of the tag with the same color ink. Next I added my Black Polka Dot Trendy Page Dot to the top and tied my tag on with a bow.  I finished it off with a snowflake die cut from my Cricut and added a sequin from the Blue Berry Sequins to the middle and another one to the tag.

Have a great day!!

Trendy Twine -- Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I' posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  Even though it seems like time flies by, I'm happy for a new year, new start.  I'm hoping this is going to be a great year!

I'm sharing a New Year's card with you today. I should make some more to send out. This was a pretty easy one to make once I settled on the design.  I went with Totally Black Trendy Twine to go along with my print then cut new year's penguin from my Cricut.


I used this fun background paper with sparkles.  It's from a Christmas paper pad but it was perfect for this New Year's card.   I wrapped my Totally Black Trendy Twine around the top layers and tied a bow.  Then I pop dotted those layers onto the base layers.  I also pop dotted the penguin on and then added some sequins from the Lemon Midnight Sequin Mix, just minus the lemon colored 😊


To finish it off, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sash and the top hat band. It was fun to make this one!

I hope your New Year is off to a good start and I wish everyone the best year yet!!
