Trendy Bakers Twine~End Of School Year Treats

Hello all!  'Tis the season for end of school year/start of summer projects, and that is just what I created for my latest Trendy Twine blog project.
These were super simple to make and absolutely can be made last minute if needed!  All of the supplies I used to make these were from Annie's Paper Boutique besides the mini glue dots for the sequins.  I started by putting fun size Kit Kat bars into Yellow Chevron Treat Bags and folded over the tops.
To embellish them, I made "thread nests" of Lemon Tart Trendy TwineYellow Chevron Treat BagsFun in the Sun PrintablesMini Wooden Clothespins, and Autumn Sequins.  The last thing I did was a bow of Totally Lemon Trendy Twine tied to the clothespins.  Yes, it really was that simple!
The sayings and images in the Fun in the Sun Printable are so cute for summer!  You'll definitely want to check that out for any and all of your summer projects.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Trendy Bakers Twine~Mother's Day Card

Hello all!  Today I am on the Trendy Twine blog with a Mother's Day card.  It features one of our bright and cheerful twines of the month, Totally Lemon Trendy Twine.
I started by stamping a Unity stamp onto watercolor paper with Scrapbook.com hybrid black ink.  Once that was fully dry, I watercolored the image with Distress Inks then die cut around the image with a GMD Eyelet Elegance rectangle die.  That die has the perfect holes to weave the Totally Lemon Trendy Twine through!  I love how it added texture and created another visual frame around the image.  I added a sentiment from the APB Friendship stamp set onto a kraft banner and glued a die cut "mom" above it to make it a little more personalized.  The sequins on the card are from the Grape Fizz SequinRaspberry Cupcake Sequin and Sky Sequin mixes and were adhered with Bearly Art precision tip glue. The whole front panel was then glued to a kraft card base that I had distressed with brown ink along the edges.  I think this will be the perfect card to give my mom for Mother's Day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Spring Thanks Card

Good morning!  Today I am on the Trendy Twine blog with this spring themed card.  It features our Trendy Twine twists of the month, Chocolate Cupcake, and Chocolate Sprinkles.
I started with a kraft card base and added Jillibean Soup patterned papers with Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine wrapped around.  I then proceeded to add a GMD eyelet elegance square die cut at an angle, with the excess trimmed off.  The Kraft Tag-It and flower die cuts were all distressed with Memento Desert Sand ink.  The tag was finished off with a Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dot and Chocolate Cupcake and Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twines, then popped up with foam tape to the card.  The sentiment was stamped from the Greetings stamp set using SB.com Dark Chocolate ink.  Cotton Candy sequins added a finishing touch to the whole card.

Seminarian Easter Cards 2022

Hello all!  I know Easter is past, but I wanted to share the Easter cards I created for the Seminarians from our Diocese that are studying to become priests.  

All the cardstock besides the white was from Kingston Crafts paper pads.  I followed the September 2021 SheetLoad of Cards sketch.  The stamps were from Diamond Press.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine Clair Warm breeze ink and the cross was stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed with gold powder and die cut with the included die.  I kept the cards pretty simple and flat as I was making them in quantity to mail, so the only embellishments I added were a strip of ribbon behind the cross and gold pearl pen dots.  I love the richness of that embossed cross!
Here is a look at all the cards I made in this style...22 in all!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
