Trendy Bakers Twine~Christmas Ornament Card

Hello all! I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with a new card. We are having a Christmas in July theme this month, and I was thrilled to break out my Christmas supplies and have some fun!
The background paper and fussy cut ornament were from The Paper Studio's Star of Bethlehem paper pad. The dark blue cardstock was embossed with a Kaisercraft Tiles embossing folder. After adhering the ornament with foam tape, I added Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine as a hanger and double bow for it. The sentiment was stamped using the APB Merry Christmas stamp set,VersaFine Clair Twilight ink, and heat embossed with Wow! Clear Sparkle embossing powder. I wrapped Peppermint Icicle Trendy Twine around that strip of paper two time, then popped it up with foam tape. The finishing touch was a trio of Peppermint Icicle Sequins adhered with Bearly Art precision glue.

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

You can find all kinds of Christmas themed Trendy Twine samplers on sale this month, including the Christmas Sampler.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Friendship Tin Tie Bag

Hello all! Today I am sharing a project for the Trendy Twine blog. It is a tin tie treat bag to give to a friend. It features two of the original twists of Trendy Twine, Tickled With Teal, and Strawberry Cupcake.
I started with a Kraft Tin Tie Bag and glued strips of patterned paper from The Paper Studio's Boho Vibes paper pad onto it. I then added short pieces of Tickled With Teal Trendy Twine, and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine to the upper left of the bag. I then created the tag by starting with a Light Teal Large Tag-It and adding a pink 3" Paper Doily to the center. I stamped sentiment strips using APB Friendship stamps and Scrapbook.com Leather ink. Once those were glued to the tag, I made a double bow of Tickled With Teal Trendy Twine, and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine for the top of it. Once the bag was closed, I attached the tag to the bag with a Mini Wooden Clothespin for easy access to the treats!  I decided to add a little shimmer to the tag and bag with Cotton Candy Sequins. They coordinated well and added just a bit more visual interest. 

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
APB Friendship stamps (currently on sale!)

Both Trendy Twines that were used on this treat bag are available in the Original Trendy Bakers Twine Sampler if you are looking for a great starter of many colors!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Chicken Cards

Hello all! Welcome to a new month for the Trendy Twine blog! This month is a free for all with Trendy Twine colors, so I let my imagination run wild and ended up using both Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine and Totally Kraft Trendy Twine on these chicken themed cards.
When I saw the fun chicken paper in the 6x6" Carta Bella Sunflower Market paper pad, I knew I wanted to make a card for my mom using it. Chickens have have a big part in her life! I used the Bourbon Creek Crafts No Scraps Sketch Set #1 and 3 patterned papers as the starting point for these cards. Once I had the paper pieces coordinated the way I wanted, I decided to glue a braid of Trendy Twine down the front of the card. Two have Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine and the third one has Totally Kraft Trendy Twine because I thought it stood out better on the busy chicken paper. 
On one of the cards I decided to use the reverse of the chicken paper so it could be used for anyone. To build the focal point of the card, I adhered a kraft circle die cut from a GMD x-stitched die to a 3" Paper Doily. On the two chicken themed cards, using SB.com Leather ink I stamped a retired Raisin Boat chicken wire stamp. Once that was adhered to the card front with foam tape, I stamped the sentiment strip with a stamp from the APB Smile stamp set in SB.com Dark Chocolate ink and used ATG to place it on the circle.
The final touch was a trio of Chocolate Truffle Sequins that were adhered with Bearly Art precision glue.

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

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Masculine With Thanks Card

Hello all, I am back with another post for the Trendy Twine blog! This month we are spotlighting Bumblebee Trendy Twine, a bright, cheerful twist of black and yellow. It is such a versatile color! Today, I am sharing a masculine card with it.

The patterned papers are from DCWV's Honey Dear stack. I thought they were great for a guy card and the colors were a perfect match with Bumblebee Trendy Twine! The background paper was cut to 4"x5.25" and the yellow plaid strip was cut to 2''x4.75". I then matted the narrow strip with black cardstock cut to 2.25"x5" and cut one end at 1.25" to create both sides of the strip. The cut ends border the outer edges of the card. I used my Crop-A-Dile and 1/18" eyelets and 20" of Bumblebee Trendy Twine to create the lacing area. I did not adhere the yellow strip until after it was loosely laced, then once both sides were glued in place, I tightened the laces and tied a bow.

The focal point was created with a Kraft Bracket Card matted with a black die cut from CC stitched rounded rectangle dies. The toolbench stamp is retired from a SumMore Fun set called Handy Man and was stamped with SB.com Rainy Day ink. The sentiment was from the APB Greetings stamp set (on SALE for only $9!) and was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The Kraft Bracket Card was popped up with foam tape for a little extra dimension.

 If you are looking for more inspiration on what you can create with Bumblebee Trendy Twine, you can see some of my past projects using it HERE.

Trendy Bakers Twine~Cheerful Treat Box

We are in the month of May, and that means a new color for the Trendy Twine blog posts! This month we are spotlighting Bumblebee Trendy Twine. I created a cheerful treat box to make someone smile!

I started my project with a Lemon Mini Popcorn Box and using Bearly Art precision glue, adhered Bumblebee Trendy Twine near the top and bottom edges of the box. I then created a die cut flower using papers from DCWV's Honey Dear stack, inked the edges with SB.com Daffodil ink, and layered it with foam tape to stick to the front of the box. A double bow of Bumblebee Trendy Twine and a sentiment stamped in black from the APB Choose Happy stamp set finished off the front of the box.

On the three other sides of the box, I used the centers of Lemon Midnight Trendy Page Dots to embellish! Don't throw those centers away when you use Trendy Page Dots, use them to dress up your projects! They can take the place of sequins or simply add polka dots to add visual interest.

Trendy Bakers Twine~You Are 1 Layout

Good morning! I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with a first birthday scrapbook layout for my daughter. It features Tickled Pink Trendy Twine, a beautiful twist of pink and white, perfect for any girly projects!
All the patterned papers are from DCWV's Unicorns & Rainbows stack. It is THE stack of papers to get if you have a unicorn loving person in your life! I matted and adhered the photos first. The green striped matte layers were edged with Scrapbook.com succulent ink. I then made the title using my Silhouette Cameo and SCAL with fonts from my computer. The yellow and purple layers were solid colored cardstock, but the silver layer was adhesive vinyl. I love using that for words! The cardstock layers were adhered with Bearly Art precision glue. Before adding the number one to the layout with foam tape, I glued a 3" paper doily in green to the background paper, then wrapped Tickled Pink Trendy Twine around the 1 and tied it in a knot. I then put the Tickled Pink Trendy Twine up to the balloon, which was inked around with Scrapbook.com Candy Shop Pink ink. After adding a bow of Tickled Pink Trendy Twine on the balloon, I glued Raspberry Cupcake Sequins around the title.
I added a journaling tag to the layout with a Lavender Tag-It, Lemon Midnight Trendy Page DotTickled Pink Trendy Twine, and stamped a sentiment from the Documenting the Everyday #2 stamp set with VersaFine Clair Morning Mist ink. The bottom right corner had a unicorn printed on the paper. I simply added a double bow of Tickled Pink Trendy Twine to it's head to fancy it up a bit!
 Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:


You can find our featured twist of April, Tickled Pink, in the following samplers if you don't need a whole spool.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Birthday Fishes Card

Hello all! Today I am sharing a fun birthday card I sent to my little nephew. He loves fish! The Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies stamp set was perfect for this card.
The printed card base is from The Paper Studio. I die cut 4 Cottage Cutz stitched circle dies from solid cardstock, glueing the colored ones with Bearly Art precision glue. Once the white circle was stamped and colored with Artify alcohol markers, I popped it up with foam tape to the card front. I used vintage rick rack to add visual interest and texture. The finishing touch was a few Pearl Lane small gems above the fish to look like bubbles!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Mother's Day Love Cards

Good morning! I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with two sweet Mother's Day cards. That holiday will be here before you know it, so I took the time to work ahead so I don't have to scramble when May comes. These cards feature Tickled Pink Trendy Twine, a beautiful twist of pink and white.
The patterned papers are from Doodlebug Design Lots of Love collection. I used a hole punch to take a bit of the card base off where the two patterned papers met to create and indentation for 3 lengths of Tickled Pink Trendy Twine. I tied those into a bow near the bottom of the card. 
For the focal point is a die cut heart stamped with Momenta stamps and Scrapbook.com inks ink Candy Shop Pink and Oasis. It was popped up with foam tape. To add a bit of sparkle, I used Bearly Art precision glue to adhere Raspberry Cupcake Sequins. Now these are ready to gift to make my mom and mother-in-law smile!

Hello all, and happy Easter! I have a post on the Trendy Twine blog with a new set of Easter cards! I needed a few more cards to send out, and this was just the right amount.
The part that makes these cards so adorable are the new circle retro Easter tags. I just couldn't wait to use them! This first set has Happy Easter Ducky Retro Tags and blue 3" Paper Doilies

The second set of cards feature Easter Egg Chick Retro Tags and green 3" Paper Doilies. They are embellished in a similar way with the Lemon Tart Trendy Twine, but have Grape Fizz sequins.
