Planner Friday - February

I know it is only the end of February but I am already daydreaming of spring!  I can't wait to see flowers blooming and feel the sunlight warming my skin again, winter feels like it has lasted at least six months!  With this feeling in mind I have swapped planners into a white binder and I am filling it with lots of florals and fresh colours to keep me going until spring actually does arrive. 


Journalling cards & paperclips

I have added some journalling cards and a few of my favourite paper clips into the pockets of my planner and they make me smile each time I open it up!  The positive quotes on the journalling cards are going to help me through the last days of winter and they are nice and handy if I want to document anything on them in the meantime.

I continued the spring theme onto my planner pages this week using lots of lovely Annie's Paper Boutique products.


Products used:
Choose Happy stamps
Used but not pictured:
Trendy Page Dots
Journalling cards
Paper clips

I am really happy with how they turned out!  I love how clean and tidy they look because of the APB stamps and I matched my ink colours to the washi tape and Trendy Page Dot reinforcements just to pull it all together.


My spring themed spread

I used the At HomeMore At Home and Check It Off sets for my daily to do lists and reminders and the Weekend stamp for some extra decoration.  All of the positive little quotes come from the Choose Happy stamp set and they are fantastic for brightening your day!  I think they are one of my all time favourite sets, they're just so happy and cheerful!

If my pretty spring planner has inspired you to get organised then stop by the store now to pick out some supplies and I will see you again next month!

Trendy Bakers Twine - February Guest Designer Christi

Hello!  Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility  Stopping in to share my last post as February's Guest designer here at Trendy Twine.  I sure am going to miss it greatly!  Lesley and the ladies are truly among the greatest crafters and sweetest to work with, in the crafting industry.  

My last project is a simple card .  I like to make up non sentiment cards to have around so if I need a card in a hurry all I have to do is pick a sentiment and add it quickly and off I go.  That is what I did with this card.  Here it is:


I picked springy colors with my AC Cardstock. I made a paper piecing from Cuddly Cute Designs called Spring Elfkin and then of course it wouldn't be finished without my beautiful Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine to top it off!  So many uses for this card!  Birthday, Easter, Thinking of you, Miss you, Love you and on and on. 

I hope you enjoyed my card!   Here is what I used from Trendy Twine:

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Hello Happy Mail

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations. I made a fun purse card to show you today.  I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine, the Smile Stamp Set, You've Got Mail Stamp Set, and a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins.


The card was a ready to make card in my Cricut Design Space.  Sometimes I like to look through there for some fun projects and this one was so cute!  It was supposed to use a Hello Kitty cut that I didn't own, but I just substituted one that I did own.


This is a purse shape and called for a snap to close it and a chain for the handle.  I couldn't find a snap to work so I used a few Raspberry Cupcake Sequins to add to the top for a button look.  And I wanted to use my Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine for the handle.  


The instructions said to pop dot the Hello Kitty on the front.  That was a little boring so I glued my twine around the outside of the purse and then added a small banner die cut with the Hello from the Smile set. The design included and envelope which I did cut out and stamped the Happy Mail from the You've Got Mail Stamp set.

This was fun to make!  There's still some more fun projects this month so keep checking back.

Trendy Bakers Twine - Thanks a Latte - Guest Designer Christi

Hello Trendy Twine Fans!  Christi from Scrapping For Tranquility  It is always such an honor to  post for Lesley and The Trendy Twine gals.  They all do such fine work and come up with the cutest ideas with such beautiful twine, don't you think?  I only hope I showcase The twine as well as they do.  

Speaking of....Here is my second project for this month:



I have numerous friends that are coffee lovers even though I am not fond of it myself.  (I love hot tea or Hot cocoa.)  Many times I want to thank them for a job well done or for just a small token of my appreciation and didn't want to just hand them a regular ol' card.  and this is what I came up with.

At Annie's Paper Boutique  Lesley  has these awesome little mini Coffee Cups with lids!  You can do soooo many fun things with them!  I happened to make a fun holder and cup wrap for mine!   Then,  At Annie's Paper Boutique you can also get the CUTEST Wooden Spoons and decorate the handle. I used Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine  for my handle, then stuck it in the lid!  Wrap some more Trendy Twine around the outside of the cup and and a sentiment of any kind .  I filled my cup with Hersey's kisses instead of coffee , put the lid on and now my friend has a beautiful little "thanks a-latte!" from me!

Whatever the occasion, isn't this a fun alternative to a regular greeting card?   Have fun with it!

Come over to my blog here:Scrapping For Tranquility for more ideas and links to my svg's for the cup holder.

Here is what I used from Trendy Twine/Annie's Paper











I would love to hear from you!  Leave me a message and let me know what you think!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Love!

Hello Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a fun idea for more Valentine treats!
The team is spotlighting these adorable Kraft Window Boxes. These are so cute for adding treats, cookies, candy of any shape or size. The candies shown are the extra large M&M's, so the boxes are a really great size!

Here, the box is shown without the tag so you can see how big the window is to display your treat.  Helen put makeup inside her treat boxes, and it looked GREAT!

I added a fun tag using APB Pink and red tag-its and used a cute TPD.  Last by certainly not least I added the gorgeous Strawberry Cupcake Twine.

Stop over to the Boutique and see all the specials this month!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Kraft Window Boxes - Guest Designer Christi

Hello Trendy Twine Fans!  Christi from Scrapping For Tranquility here!  Excited to be Guest designer for another term here at Trendy Twine! 

Today I want to share these adorable Kraft Window Boxes and beautiful Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine that are on special this month.

Here is what I did with them:




 First I took the Kraft Window Box and measured it and made an SVG to match out of it to cut my cardstock to cover the box.  Glued the AC Crimson Cardstock on the box.  Wrapped the Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine several times around the right side of the box and let it hang loose.  I glued a large heart shaped button onto the box and then a small heart shaped button on top of the large one.  Filled the box with Starburst candy.
I then made a tag in my Cameo 3 , putting a superhero burst to represent the burst in "starburst". cut out the  heart and lettering and glued them down and tied my pretty little Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine  on my tag and called it done!  

I have made 3 more of these for my grandchildren for Valentine treats  and hope you can do the same.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

This is what I used from Trendy Twine:

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Valentine Treat Box

Hello all and happy Thursday!   Beth from Beth's Beauties here, and I am sharing this sweet Valentine treat box I created with you today.
I started with a Kraft Window Box and stamped on it with APB You & Me planner stamps using Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry as well as VersaMagic Cloud White ink.  When the inks were dry, I added the peanut M&M's, wrapped the box with Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine and added a Pink Tag-It.  The Tag-It is decorated with a Pink Midnight Trendy Page DotJust For You print and punch tag, and Chocolate Truffle Sequins.
I used all of the elements from February's Treat Packaging Bundle on this project!  I just love how well these go together.  Perfect for Valentine's Day or party favors!

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