Trendy Bakers Twine -- Have a Sunny Day!

Hello!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a sunny card to share with you.  I used Dark Citrus Trendy Twine, the Smile Stamp Set, and some Lemon Tart Sequins.

I found this cute sun and cloud image in my Cricut Design Space. I know it would be perfect with my Dark Citrus Trendy Twine.  Next I cut a tag shape with a die and made the topper a cute yellow to contrast with my blue and white paper.  


Then I stamped my sentiment from the Smile Stamp set on the bottom of the tag and wrapped my Twine around the bottom with a bow and added it to the top.  I pop dotted my image to the tag and pop dotted the tag to the card base and added my sequins.


I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sunshine and Smiles

Hello everyone! I'm posting some treats over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I used our twine of the month, Dark Citrus Trendy Twine, along with Medium Kraft Pillow BoxesPetite Kraft Metal Rim TagsChoose Happy Stamp Set, and the Lemon Shaker Medley.


After I filled my Pillow Box with candy, I wrapped my box in a strip of blue paper and then wrapped my Dark Citrus Trendy Twine around the long edge. 


I stamped my sentiments from Choose Happy onto the petite tags and then tied it on the top of the box.  Then I just added a few flowers from the Lemon Shaker Medley.


I hope you have a great rest of your week!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Ready for Spring!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I'm showing you some cards I made a few weeks ago and haven't posted.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine on one and Limeade Trendy Twine on the other. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some pretty weather!  These cards make me think of the nice days that Spring can have and I'm dreaming of 😊


On this card I used the Unity Stamp Wreath Builder set and kept it simple.  Since you need a square piece of cardstock, I knew my Totally White Trendy Twine would be perfect for the bottom part of the card with a bow in the middle.


This card used Limeade Trendy Twine and Lemon Tart Sequins.  I love the yellow and green together and this paper had both.  So I used my Limeade Trendy Twine on the curve of the card stock and my Lemon Tart Sequins as accents.

I hope you have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Much Love

Hello all!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today and sharing a card that could be a valentine, but it doesn't have to be!  I used Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine and two different sequin mixes from Annie's Paper Boutique.


The heart tree is from MFT stamps.  I thought it would be perfect for my Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I made the red base, and the white top layer.  Then I wrapped my twine around the card and tied the bow at the tree base in the middle.  


I then cut out a small tag and embossed my sentiment onto it.  Then I took a black sequin from the Lemon Midnight Sequin Mix and a red one from the Candy Cane Sequins.  It's good to own them all from the store so that I can mix and match LOL!

Have a wonderful day!

  • Blueprints 33
  • Tag Builder 7

Trendy Bakers Twine -- XO OX Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's finally February!  January really did seem like a very long month.  It didn't help that it rained a lot where I live.  This month, the Trendy Gals are showcasing Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I also used Candy Cubes 2x2 Boxes and the Smile Stamp Set.


I have these cute buffalo plaid SVG files that I just got last week.  They go perfectly with our Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine!  The original plan was to just put them on the box, but I wanted them to pop.  So I wrapped a 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock around the box after wrapping my Twine around the box a few times.


Next, I put foam tape on all the pieces.  Even the tiny heart.  It was thing pieces of tape! There's an XO and OX on each box.


To finish it off, I cut a small tag from a die I have and stamped the Smile from the Smile Stamp Set onto it and punched a hole.  Then I slipped it through one of the pieces of twine and finished it off with a box.  I also added a small red enamel dot that I just picked up this weekend.  I love craft shopping for February!
Hope you have a great day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- That's the Point

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up with Trendy Twine. I'm back again with Totally White Trendy Twine.  Today, I made some pencil treats to show you.  I used the Skinny Candy BagsChoose Happy Stamp SetTag-It'sRaspberry Cupcake SequinsBlue Berry Sequins, and Lemon Tart Sequins.

I got these cute pencils in the check out line at Michael's.  The sayings were cute and I matched up some similar ones in each bag. I cut down the Tag-It's so that the sayings on the pencils would be seen and I picked out sentiments from the Choose Happy Stamp Set that kind of matched the pencils.


I tried to find matching Tag-It's but didn't have one of these pencil colors in my stash.  So I went with a pink one.  (Lavender would have been perfect!) I used Blue Berry Sequins to accent this one.


This is a Lemon Tag-It.  I then used some Lemon Tart Sequins too.


This one is a darker pink Tag-It but I don't see it in the store.  It was probably a different pink cardstock at one point.  I used Raspberry Cupcake sequins. I loved that the sentiment matched the one pencil!


These were fun to make and will be fun to give!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Birthday Panda

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and today I have a Clean and Simple card to show you today.  I used Totally White Trendy Twine and the black and while sequins from Lemon Midnight Sequins.

I am not one to make a card with no layers.  This is not usually LOL!  But I loved the simplicity of the black and white on the kraft cardstock.  It's my year to try new things I guess!


I used a cute little panda from Lawn Fawn called Party Panda.  I die cut him out and his cute little cupcake.  Then I wrapped my Totally White Trendy Twine around the card twice and tied a knot in the middle.  I pop dotted the panda and cupcake above the knot. 


I'm not the best at placing my Lemon Midnight Sequins 'randomly' like some people are.  But I think the card still turned out cute

Have a wonderful day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- XOXO Treats

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine it Up! with Trendy Twine today. I hope your new year is off to a good start! I've been crafting a lot so I think it's pretty good for me in that area LOL!

Our Twine of the Month is Totally White Trendy Twine. You can color this with Copics but I love the bright white and it paired really nicely with the Kraft Treat Packet I used. I also used  the You & Me Planner Stamps.


I just wrapped my Totally White Trendy Twine around the front of the Kraft Treat Packet. I did use some tape on the other side to make sure it stayed in place with the angle going up. Then I just made little knots at at angle too. I liked this look.


I stamped the cute You & Me Planner Stamps in White Pigment ink onto the flap.  I thought I would need to heat set, but I only had clear and the pigment ink dried really well on the kraft which I was happy about!

Inside the plastic bag that comes with the packet are red only M&M's. So this would definitely work as a Valentine's treat.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  I've made some New Year's cards so send to some friends that didn't get a Christmas card from me as I ran out of time.  

These cards all use the same cut file from my Cricut that I turned into a print then cut.  I just made them different colors and used different twine and sequins on all of them.




I hope you have a happy and crafty New Year!
