Best Wishes

Hello everyone!  Every new year I resolve to play in more challenges.  Now that I have my own craft room, I think it will be easier to create now.  I had time since I'm off so I decided to start this year :)  And I'll just have to schedule time to play starting on Wednesday when I go back to work.
This is for the MFT Sketch Challenge.  The deadline is noon Jan. 1.  It isn't exactly what I wanted to make, but I decided to post and play along anyway.  I think I'm just out of practice LOL!

I used MFT Gift Box Cover-Up Die, Best Wishes Die, and Forever and Owlways Stamps and Dies.  The sequins are Chocolate Truffle from Annie's Paper Boutique.
Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Salty & Sweet Treats

Image
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!

Image
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

Image
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

Image
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.
I used This is December and This is December #2 on my project.  Additionally, I used Candy Cane Trendy Twine, Candy Cane Sequins, Red Chevron Treat Bags, Cranberry Tag-It's and some Christmas Mint Trendy Page Dots.

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 …

Hello everyone!  The Trendy Gals and guest designers have a special post today to say Happy Birthday to our leader Lesley! She has created all these fun products that we love to use.

I sent her this Hello Kitty Card.  The image is from Cricut and I printed, then cut it out.  The twine is Strawberry Cupcake (I use this one a lot).  It's glued all around the over and finished with a bow.  I used Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems and a sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set.

Trendy Bakers Twine - Turkey Treat Box

Image
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

Image
Happy Halloween!
Today the Trendy Gals are featuring the memory keeping stamps:  Documenting the Everyday & Documenting the Everyday #2 Sets Feeling Happy & Feeling Funny Sets
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…

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Bewitched Halloween

Image
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

Image
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!

Image
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

Image
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!
