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!
