Trendy Twine - Valentine Treat

Hello There!

Today I have a Valentine Treat I am sharing on the Trendy Twine Blog using Krafty Red Trendy Twine and Metal Rim Kraft Tags.
I created this using half an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock which I layered a piece of designer paper over then I created a pouch. I used a heart die-cut to create a window for my goodies to peek though. I outlined the heart with Krafty Red Trendy Twine.  
I had a scrap of corrugated cardboard that I used on the right side which gave some visual texture. Next I wrapped a length of red grosgrain ribbon around and tied off in a bow embellishing with a double bow of Krafty Red Trendy Twine.  I attached a Metal Rim Kraft Tag with a stamped image (PTI) to the center of the bow using a button and Krafty Red Trendy Twine. A white paper rose finished it off quite nicely. 
   Hope you have enjoyed this little treat!

Trendy Twine- Bee Mine Mason Jar Treats

Hello everyone!

I hope you are warm where you are at. We are in the middle of a blizzard this weekend. The snow just keeps coming. It's been many years since I have had to deal with this much snow. It's pretty to look at from the inside, but it all has to get removed and go somewhere. That means shoveling and getting out in it. I can't even open my front door at the moment. Ugh! Anyway, I am on the Trendy Twine Blog today with a project. 

I am happy to share with you a little gift I put together for my son to give to his teachers that incorporates some Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  
I love decorating and gift giving anything in a jar. They are so fun and easy to decorate. I spray painted the top and set to dry. Once dry, I then hit it with some spray adhesive and added some chunky glitter.
This gives a slightly better view of the top. I just die-cut a circle from hot-pink patterned paper and die-cut a lighter pink heart to cover the jar seal.
At the top of the jar, I added some light pink crochet lace trim which I topped with the yummy Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine tying in a bow embellishing with a baby pink paper rose. I simply adhered a die-cut layer to the center of my jar after I stamped my images and sentiment using the Paper Smooches Bee Mine set. Before I adhered the layers, I trimmed my circle with Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine adding a bow to the top for a further embellishing touch.

Trendy Twine Valentine Box

Hello everyone~

I have a Valentine Treat Box to share with you today as it's my day to post on the Trendy Twine Blog. As you have seen already, we are featuring Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine. I started by decorating a 3 x 3 Kraft box that can also be found at Annie's Paper Boutique. you receive 10 boxes in a package and they are flat. I decorate mine flat and then assemble!

I also used the images from the new Valentine's Day Printable in the store as well. The pink graph with hearts you see below come on that sheet, and I just cut it down to size. I also die-cut the circle with heart out and added to the center. I die-cut a pink arrow layered on top. Next I die-cut a heart from bright pink felt added to the center embellishing with a white button laced with Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
I also trimmed the front of the box with Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine as well!
I fussy cut the red xo heart also from the Valentine's Day printable and added to the center of the pink-polka dotted patterned paper. 
You will also find this cute Happy Valentine's Day banner on there as well. A little further embellishing with a sweet Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine bow never hurt. :)
Makes for a sweet little gift for your Valentine, neighbor, co-worker, teachers, crossing guards...the list goes on~

Trendy Twine - Mittens in Winter

Good 1st Sunday to you in this new year!

I am on the Trendy Twine blog today and we are featuring Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  You will probably see a lot of pink being featured this month! :-)

I started this card by piecing together a few pink and white patterned papers I had in my paper stash and adding to the pink card front.

I then wrapped a length of bright pink crinkle seam binding around the vertical center of the patterned papers and tied it in a fussy bow at the top of the card and embellished it with a big pink button laced and looped with a Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine bow.

The striped frame was stamped in white snow ink, on pink cardstock added to the center o the card front.  I filled the frame with some die-cut mittens which I tied together in a shape of a heart using Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  The sweet sentiment was added to the bottom of the card.

Thanks for peeking in!
Here are the supplies I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

2016- Happy New Year {The Kraft Journal}

Hello Friends!

This is a bitter sweet post for me! I've been with The Kraft Journal a few years and The Kraft Journal has decided to close it's doors, but The Kraft Outlet remains open. They have been wonderful to me over the years and they are very FAMILY focused and have been a dream to design for. 2016 also will be a new beginning for me as I decide to head back to school and I will find less time to craft myself in the coming year as I concentrate on school.

So for my last care in 2015 and for The Kraft Journal,
I began this New Year's card with a card base of Brown Kraft cardstock. I pieced together patterned papers from a designer paper pack and joined them by wrapping around a length of Natural Twill Tape and tying in a bow further embellishing with a double bow made from Black Baker's Twine which I topped with an Icon Flatback
Using Buff Ivory Cardstock, I cut a rounded stitched rectangle using a die and distressed edges with inks. I cut out 2016 from Blackboard Stockpaper adding to the rectangle embellishing with three black gems followed by stamping Happy New Year in black ink. Lastly, I die-cut an arrow and popped it up facing the year.  All other stamps and dies are by My Creative Time

It truly has been wonderful designing for The Kraft Journal using fabulous products for The Kraft Outlet the last several years.
And as a way to say Thank You we would like

Trendy Twine - Thanks

Good Sunday Morning to you!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

I am over on the Trendy Twine Blog today. It's a little bare under the tree, and it's time to think about thank you notes to show appreciation for those thoughtful gifts. I have one to share today featuring Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
I started with a red card base and then pieced together two patterned papers from my stash.  I took a length of Candy Candy Trendy Twine where the papers met.
Next, I die-cut a tree from patterned paper and trimmed it with some more Candy Candy Trendy Twine adding to the left side of the card front by adhering with foam adhesive. I stamped my sentiment adding a Candy Candy Trendy Twine triple bow to the top.

Trendy Twine - Tis The Season

Good Morning!

I am over on the Trendy Twine Blog today sharing these cute tags I created which I trimmed out using Candy Cane Trendy Twine

A quick and easy gift is to fill some festive goblets with some yummy chocolates (I used Hershey Kisses here) and put in a cute celo bag and dressed up with a darling tag which I added to a red satin bow.
I layered a tag and used Candy Cane Trendy Twine to trim the edge of the tag.  I used the Create A Critter Cartridge at 2 1/2 to cut the Penguin. The sentiment is also from the same cartridge. It makes a cute little gift for a neighbor or hostess.

Love & Happiness {The Kraft Journal}

Good Monday to you!

We have a Take Your Pick challenge at The Kraft Journal this week. I chose snowman, green, glitter, and ribbon. I started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock where I added a rectangle layer of green and white snowflake patterned paper to the center. 

Next, I took a length of red seam binding ribbon and wrapped it around the left side of the card front making a fussy bow adding in some white seam binding, A bow was made of Red Baker's Twine which was embellished further with a green button and layered as a topping to the ribbon treatment. 

I die-cut a circle from white cardstock and stamped the sweet little snowman from Peachy Keen Stamps directly to the circle next paper piecing the hat and scarf adding a touch of glitter to the hat. I added three black pearls for buttons.  I stamped the sentiment (My Pink Stamper) in black ink. For a final embellishing touch, I placed a few enamel dots on the card.

Here is your choices for The Take Your Pick:

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Take Your Pick creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

Trendy Twine - Holiday Gift Candy Tin

It's my turn to share a gift giving idea with you on the Trendy Twine blog today.  I am showcasing the Candy Tin, but not using it for candy. :) This is the season of gift gift giving.
I took some pictures to show you how I started out. I added some adhesive to a gift card and stuck it in the bottom of the tin to hold the gift card in place.
 Next I added a festive bar of handmade soap on top.
If you are not a crafty person or limited on supplies this alone makes an adorable way to give a gift card and gift as you see below, but it's always fun to dress up further of course. :)
I trimmed it out with Candy Cane Trendy Twine adding a triple bow to the corner embellished with a red gem to the center.
