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!

Trendy Twine ~ Mini Christmas Candy Boxes

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

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!

Planner Friday - November

Yes!  We are so close to December I can almost taste it!  I can't wait for the festive period to start so I thought for this month's Planner Friday I would show you my Christmas themed spread in my Travellers Notebook.

My Christmas spread

I wanted to record some of my favourite things about Christmas and list the things I am looking forward to doing next month so I got to work with my Annie's Paper Boutique stamps!  I absolutely LOVE my Christmas stamp sets, they are full of fun and quirky quotes that are perfect for journalling, card making, gift tags and lots more!  

On the first page I have used the Christmas Movies stamp from the This is December set for the list of films I want to watch over the holidays and I added a couple of stamps from the Foodies set as there will definitely be snacks involved while I watch them!  Frozen is a family favourite in this house so the Do you want to build a snowman? stamp from the Let It Snow set just had to make an appearance too!

On the second page I have a list of things I need to do but they are also things I enjoy.  I can't wait to put up the tree, cover the house in decorations, hit the shops to buy gifts and treats and then wrap it all up.  I also recorded some of my favourite things to drink and eat using the This Is December #2
and Drinks & More stamp sets and I have left myself a space to add a photo of my children I am going to take on Christmas Eve while they are waiting for Santa to arrive.

The last thing I did was to give myself a reminder that I need to put out some cookies and milk for Father Christmas and a carrot for Rudolph and I used the image stamps from my Perfect Pairs set for this.  I think they look super cute!

Are you all set for Christmas?  Do you want to get organised in 2018?  Why don't you pop over to the store now and check out all the fab products to help you finish off the year with a bang and banish the January blues at the start of the year?

See you again next month!
