Trendy Twine - Guest Designer, Christi Steinbeck

Ten more days till Christmas!  (But, who is counting, right?)  Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility with my last Guest Designer post for December.  I always love when Lesley and the gang here at Trendy Twine grace me with this honor!  Who can't resist Trendy Twine's Bakers Twine????  I know it is on the top of my Christmas list!

For my last project I want to share with you another Christmas card I made for a special friend.

I found something similar in a magazine, like my last post, but of course had to make this mine.

I started off with a white base folding it in half and putting a red Piece of AC Card stock on top of this.  I then pulled out my DCWV stack, Winter Solstice for the pattern snow flakes.  I Glued all three down together .  

I brought out my Nested, Stitched Circles from Pink and Main and laid them in the middle of the front of the card.  (making sure to not have the back of my card in the way.)  And ran it through my Big Shot to cut out the 3 inch circle.

Taking a 3 inch die and a 4 inch die I then cut out the frame to go around the circle, and set it aside for later.

Cutting 5 , 3 1/2 inch pieces of Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine, I proceeded to lay ATG Tape around the circle edge then stretching the twine from one side to the other.  Keeping the twine at the top of the circle close together and spread out at the bottom.
When the Twine was laid out I put the ATG tape over the top of the twine edges around the circle edges again to now lay the frame I cut out earlier.  I proceeded to put Glitter Glue around the frame and set aside to dry.
I cut out a 1 1/2 in circle and a shadow for my sentiment and picked out a sentiment from a stamp set I had in my stash.  Once my glitter glue was dry I glued my sentiment on at the bottom of my circle and made a bow out of my Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine and draped it down the sides of my circle.  To finish it off, I added clear snowflakes and added red and blue bling to the centers to match my twine.

Here is what I used from Trendy Twine:

I hope you all have a VERY Merry Christmas and a VERY Happy New Year!

Tredny Twine - Snowmen Treats

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love sharing some little snowman treats showcasing  Mini Candy Cubes and Holly Trendy Twine.

These candy cubes are just way too CUTE! They are tiny but great for candy or tiny treats!

I wanted to keep my boxes clear because I color coordinated the candy for my project - HAHA I simply wrapped each box with  Holly Trendy Twine. and topped them off with some snowmen.

I also added a little bit of  Holly Trendy Twine to the scarves :)

Trendy Twine -- Merry Christmas Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations .  I cannot believe it's almost Christmas!  I have so much still to do.

Today, I have a project using the Mini Candy Cubes, Berry Trendy Twine, the Merry Christmas Stamp set, and some sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley.

I added red and green M&M's to my Mini Candy Cubes.  Then, I cut out this label using a die and stamped the Christmas Blessings sentiment from the Merry Christmas Stamp set.

I punched a hole at the top and threaded my Berry Trendy Twine through it and around the box and tied it off with a bow. Then I just added a few sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley to the tag.  I love the tree sequins in the mix!

This is a super fast and easy project and would be perfect to add by the place settings for Christmas dinner.

 Keep checking back all month long for more fun Christmas/Winter projects!

Trendy Twine - Guest Designer Christi

Hello!  It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!  :)  Christi here, and I am sooo lucky to be a Guest Designer again this holiday season for Trendy Twine!  YEAH! 

I want a share a card I made but I can't take full credit for it.  I found one similar in a crafting magazine and loved it.   I filed it up in my to do list and finally had a chance to make it.  Now I am sharing it with all you Trendy Twine fans!  

With out further ado:

Easy to make, You take and cut out a triangle (taller than wide) out of card stock.  Wrap it in double sided  tape.  I used Christmas Mint Trendy Twine to wrap closely together around the triangles to make the trees.  Decorate with Bling.  Tear Card stock for the mountains and I used Stickles for the snow tops.  You can make your card front any way you would like.  I then decorated with shaped buttons and bling.

Here is the what I used from Trendy Twine:

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas trees made from the Christmas Mint Trendy Twine.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Hello all and happy Thursday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here, and today I am sharing these adorable little candy boxes I decorated.
I started by filling Mini Candy Cubes with Mint Truffle Hershey's Kisses, then wrapped some Christmas paper around them.  Then I created the tag and stamped sentiments from the APB Merry & Bright stamp set on them.  To embellish, I added a double bow of Berry Trendy Twine and a jingle bell as well as sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley.  Simple yet festive holiday treats complete!

Trendy Twine - Be Merry

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I have a Christmas themed project to share.  I started my project with some Mini Candy Cubes which were the perfect size for tucking in some treats.  I wrapped some festive paper around each of the candy cubes.
For the top, I cut out a couple of scalloped circles.  A die cut reindeer was popped up on foam dots on top of each of the circles.  I used a bit of Wink of Stella on the reindeer noses for a sparkly affect and inked the edges for added dimension.
A sentiment from the APB Hello Santa stamp set was stamped on a hand cut flag and adhered to each candy cube.  A tiny jingle bell was tied to each of the cubes with some Holly Trendy Twine.
The products used on my project are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Trendy Twine - Pumpkin Greetings

Hello Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a pile of pumpkin fun :) I just love the APB Fall Stamps and the pumpkin is my favorite! So I decided to use it along with our spotlight color Creamy Pumpkin to create a fun little card. 

I simply stamped the pumpkins like they were stacked on one another :) I added a little tag that I stamped with two sentiments from the APB Fall Stamps and then tied it with Creamy Pumpkin

Super simple and easy card for Fall.

Trendy Twine -- Give Thanks

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  I know we are all thinking about Christmas right now, but I'm posting one last fall project today using the Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine along with the Autumn Sequin Mix and the Chocolate Truffle Sequins.

I made this banner with a file that was shared in a Cricut Group.  It was just so fun and I knew my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine would look great with the paper I picked out.  

I added Clear Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen to all the letters and the leaf.  You can see that much better in person as it's hard to photograph a banner 😃 Then I added some Autumn Sequins along with brown sequins from the Chocolate Truffle Mix to the panel.  I didn't want to over do those.

Lastly, I tied little Creamy Pumpkin Bows to put on all the banners--two per banner.  Then I laid it out on the floor, doubled up my twine, and glued all the top tabs around the twine to secure it.  It's pretty sturdy!

This folds up nicely to store for next year!
