Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Birthday to You

Hello everyone!  I'm posting at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I'm sharing a simple one layer balloon birthday card.  I used Blue Berry Trendy Twine and Blue Berry Sequins.

This is based off a card sketch by MFT Stamps.  I just love this balloon die, so I cut it out with this cute blue heart pattern paper. I then used my Blue Berry Trendy Twine as the string and added a cute bow to it.

I added my banner sentiment and then some Blue Berry Sequins.  This was just a quick and easy card but so fun!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Woohoo Treats!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have some quick treats to share with you today using the 2 x 2 Window Boxes and Blue Berry Trendy Twine.

I wanted to show off the cute windows on these boxes so I decided to just decorate the tops.  To do that, I die cut the banner shape, then stamped my sentiments on them.  Then I glued my Blue Berry Trendy Twine around the outline.  

Next I filled my 2 x 2 Window Boxes with my candy.  I ran out of my blue peanut M&M's so I picked up a 4th of July bag of regular M&M's and pulled out the blue and white for the other box. Then I wrapped my Blue Berry Trendy Twine are the sides twice and tied it off. 

Finally to make my banners stand on top of the box, I just made a small base to glue to the back by scoring a small piece of cardstock and gluing it to the back of the banner and the top of the box.

These boxes are so cute and even have a spot at the top you can pop out to put a cake pop in it!  But I have not had luck with cake pops so didn't try it for this post. Maybe I will again some day.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Father's Day

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen posting at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  I made this Father's Day card using Blue Berry Trendy Twine.

Fathers Day is less than two weeks away and that's plenty of time to make a card.  I found the top layer of this card on Cricut Design Space as a complete card.  I just used the top layer from that and made it bigger and it printed out as a print then cut. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom and wrapped my Blue Berry Trendy Twine around a few times.

I used an embossing folder to make the tire marks on the shiny silver paper for a base.  I love how it turned out! It's just hard get a great picture due to the shiny material.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a simple, but pretty, birthday card using Posy Trendy Twine to share with you.

I never have enough birthday cards.  And during this stay at home stuff, I'm trying to mail cards more often, so I made this pretty pastel birthday card to add to my stash.  I picked out this pretty flower patterned paper to go along with my Posy Trendy Twine.  Then I cut out the flowers from Cricut Design Space as a print then cut. 

I die cut the top base and glued down my Posy Trendy Twine around the border and added a cute bow at the bottom.  The flower die cut is pop dotted on and I added some flat enamel stickers to the flower centers.

This was a pretty quick card to put together yet looks so pretty!

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Miss You Treats

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine today.  It's a new month and we are highlighting Posy Trendy Twine and the adorable Mini Pillow Boxes.  These are a new item in the store and are tiny and cute!

I filled my Mini Pillow Boxes with a roll of Smarties.  Each box can hold the whole roll.  That's pretty good :) These were pretty simple to create-- I wrapped some pink washi tape around the box for a base.  Then I found these cute 3D llama stickers in my stash and they were the perfect size for this box. And I added a tiny tag die and some small sentiment stamps and stuck them to the front.

Lastly, I finished it off by adding my Posy Trendy Twine as a bow at the top on the 'hang tag' part of the box. You could tuck this in but I like the look of making it kind of a handle.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Sending Love to You!

Hello everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  Today I have a sunshiny card to share with you.  I used Lemon Tart Trendy Twine and Lemon Tart Sequins.

I stamped my mailbox with flowers and colored it in.  Then I used a rectangle die to cut that out and to showcase my cute yellow dotted paper.  I glued my Lemon Tart Trendy Twine around the border of the rectangle and added a bow at the top. Then I glued it to the card base.

Next I die cut a small banner, stamped my sentiment and added a bit of my twine to the side.  I pop dotted this onto the card.  Lastly, I added some Lemon Tart Sequins.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  The Trendy Gals made some treats to share with you today using the Small Treat Box.  I love all the clear boxes and this one is fun too.  I also used Totally Pink and Totally Limeade Trendy Twine, a Large Spring Green Tag-It, a Trendy Page Dot, and a mix of Lemon Tart, Blue Berry, Grape Fizz and Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.

This was super easy to put together. I made my tag by using a print then cut bunny from Design Space and stamped my sentiment on the Large Spring Green Tag-It.  I pop dotted the bunny on and added my Trendy Page Dot.  Then I pulled out my Sequins to add to the tag.

The Small Treat Box is filled with Easter M&M's.  Since we are to 'stay at home' as much as possible, I'm doing my shopping online and having it brought to my car when I get there. The store was out of the regular holiday candy and substituted the bag of fun size packs.  I think I put four maybe 5 of the small bags in there LOL!  I picked out the sequins I added to the tag to match the candy.

Lastly, I wrapped my Totally Pink and Totally Limeade Trendy Twine around the box and tied on my tag.  I love to show off the candy inside and try to match my decorating to it!

I hope you have a blessed Easter and that you are hanging in there with all that is going on in this crazy world right now!

Be sure to visit Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the rest of the fun treat boxes!!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Aloha!

Hello everyone! I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine and I'm starting this month off with a fun Aloha treat box.  Who doesn't wish for summer right now and somewhere at the beach?  I used Lemon Tart Trendy Twine, the Mini Kraft Take Out Box, a White Tag-It, a Trendy Page Dot and a sequin from Lemon Tart Sequins.

I put some mini peanut butter cups in my Mini Kraft Take Out Box. Next, I wanted to use this fun pineapple paper.  I cut out sections and taped them together. You can see a bit of a line in the picture below. But I matched them up pretty well and it looks good.

Then I decorated my White Tag-It with a cute pineapple stamp that had a die, stamped my sentiment, and added a Lemon Tart Sequin. And then I added my Trendy Page Dot and my Lemon Tart Trendy Twine.  I also added some twine to the top handle and added a bow.

Have a great day!

Trendy Bakers Twine--Just for You!

Hi everyone!  I'm posting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine. It's been a while but I have some cute, quick treats to share with you.  Everything I used is from Annie's Paper BoutiqueGrape Fizz and Limeade Trendy TwineCandy Cubes 2x2 Clear BoxesLavender and Spring Green Tag-ItsTrendy Page Dots, and the You've Got Mail Stamp Set.  

I skipped right to Easter since I saw some chocolate eggs in the store.  I love to buy the holiday candies LOL! I filled one 2x2 Clear Box with the pink and purple candy eggs and the other with the green and yellow green eggs. 

I stamped the Just for You from the You've Got Mail Stamps on the Tag-It's that I cut down a bit and rounded the edges I cut. That's since the box is small, but I can use the tag and still see the fun stuff.  Then I added a matching Trendy Page Dot to them. 

The last step is wrapping my Grape Fizz and then my Limeade Trendy Twine around the boxes both ways, adding my tag, and tying my bow. Easy!

Have a great day!

MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge 472

Hello!  I decided to join the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge 472 this week again.  I have fun with them :)

I used the Lots of Love Die-Namics and Hearts & Stripes paper pad.  This was a simple card, but I love the way it turned out.  

I used some pink glitter paper to cut out the love and then some thicker white paper and cut it out two more times.  I glued it all together to give it dimension since I was not going to get my pop dots on that cut.

Have a great day!
