Trendy Bakers Twine - LOVE

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly with My Paper Love sharing a Valentines card for my love :) This month we are featuring Cherry Licorice twine. It's a festive twist of red and black. I just love these colors for Love day, but I also used it for Christmas as well. It's such a great twist!



I just started with a bunch of die cuts. I used a mat die cut and the letters are also a die cut. I just layered them to add a little highlight to the black letters. It makes the word pop just a bit more.


I made a sweet little twine heart using Cherry Licorice twine. I love how the twine looks on the heart.

Stop by the blog this month and see all the design projects using this gorgeous twine!

Have a nice day!

Annie's Paper Boutique~Valentines from Notecards

Hello friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  I was in need of some Valentine's Day cards...and fast!  I was trying to decide what to make that would be cute and quick and came up with this idea.  I used S.W.A.K. 3x4 Printable Cards available at Annie's Paper Boutique.
I simply printed them off onto white cardstock and cut around them.  I chose coordinating solid colored cardstock for a shadow behind the printed panel and fun patterned paper from The Paper Studio's Best Day Ever paper pad for the background.  All layers were adhered with ATG.
On two of the cards, I stamped a Hugs & Kisses sentiment from APB You & Me Planner Stamps using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink.  These were very quick to make for those of you who may be like me, scrambling to get those last minute cards in before the holiday :)  Be sure to check out all the printables at Annie's Paper Boutique!

Planner Friday - February

Hello!  I am Amanda from She's Eclectic and I am the resident planner girl here on the Trendy Twine blog.  I love to use my APB stamps to help me stay organised and to add a bit of fun to my planner pages too.  As next week is Valentine's day I have gone all out with a "romantic" theme full of hearts and things that go together perfectly so let me show you how I did it!


Products used: You & me planner stamps

The first thing I always do is to add washi tape wherever I can fit it in on my spread, usually along to top and bottom of the pages.  Then I pair that with a set of trendy page dots which reinforce the holes and protect my pages from tearing as well as adding a lovely splash of colour! I do this before I write or stamp anything so I know exactly how much space I have to work with.

Next it is time to get practical with the Check it offAt homeMore at home, and School days stamp sets!  I use the Check it off stamps to create my to do lists and then I use the other sets to add my reminders and things I need to complete like doing the recycling, paying bills and running errands.  They also cover things like events, appointments, assemblies and after school clubs.

If you want to just get organised you can stop here, you have made your plans and now you just need to work on finishing them but if you want your planner pages to look really pretty as well as being practical then there is one more stage left to do, decorate them!



Decorating with image stamps, washi and trendy page dots


I use my APB image stamps to create my designs and a few stickers here and there.  For this week I used the You & mePerfect pairs and We go together stamp sets to add sweet little couples that compliment each other like coffee and doughnuts and eggs and bacon.  Then I coloured them in to match my Valentine's Day theme using lots of pink!


Next week's plans

So this is how my week looks!

Do you like to decorate your planner, I'd love to know!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Valentine Treat Bags

Hello friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  Our featured twine for the month is Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  It is perfect for Valentine's Day treats and so much more!
I decorated Large Treat Sacks with toppers for today's project.  Starting with white cardstock folded in half, I stamped  APB You & Me Planner Stamps in red and black inks, making each topper different.  I then accented each topper with Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine, each in a unique way.
I wrapped the Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine around three times then added a bow.
This one has three bows glued to the centers of the arrows.
This final one simply has rows of Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine at angles.  I attached the toppers to the Large Treat Sacks with Linear Coverage Glue Dots.  Now these treats are ready for Valentine's Day!

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

Trendy Bakers Twine -- XO OX Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  It's finally February!  January really did seem like a very long month.  It didn't help that it rained a lot where I live.  This month, the Trendy Gals are showcasing Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.  I also used Candy Cubes 2x2 Boxes and the Smile Stamp Set.


I have these cute buffalo plaid SVG files that I just got last week.  They go perfectly with our Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine!  The original plan was to just put them on the box, but I wanted them to pop.  So I wrapped a 1 1/2 inch piece of white card stock around the box after wrapping my Twine around the box a few times.


Next, I put foam tape on all the pieces.  Even the tiny heart.  It was thing pieces of tape! There's an XO and OX on each box.


To finish it off, I cut a small tag from a die I have and stamped the Smile from the Smile Stamp Set onto it and punched a hole.  Then I slipped it through one of the pieces of twine and finished it off with a box.  I also added a small red enamel dot that I just picked up this weekend.  I love craft shopping for February!









There's lots more fun to come this month so keep checking back! And check out these other fun places:

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly with My Paper Love sharing a fun little gift box using our spotlight color Totally White Trendy Twine

The box is from Annies Paper Boutique it is a 2x2 size box, perfect for a tiny gift.



I added a Kraft Tag-it tag and a sweet sentiment from the  You & Me planner-stamps. Helen from the DT trimmed her tag and it reminded me that you can use these tags for all different sized projects.

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Crocus Birthday Card

Hello friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties back with a new project today.  Our featured twine for the month is Totally White Trendy Twine.  It is a must have in your crafting stash because it is so versatile...plus it is on SALE this month!  Here is the card I created with it...
Where is the Totally White Trendy Twine you ask?  I changed it into that lovely lavender color with a Copic marker (BV11)!  I colored it first, so it would have time to dry before adding it to my card.
Ready for a quick tutorial?  I stamped the image and sentiment from SumMore Fun's Crocus Craving stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I watercolored the image using Distress Oxide inks in Dusty Concord, Fossilized Amber, and Lucky Clover then sat that aside to dry.
Then I made an A2 sized white cardstock panel for the outside frame of the card.  One color at a time, I placed ink on my craft mat, spritzed it with water, then dabbed the edges of my cardstock into it, heat setting it between colors.  I repeated the process until I was happy with how it looked.  Using my paper trimmer, I cut in 3/4" from all sides to leave just the outside, so it doesn't matter how messy the inside area is!
Here is a close up of how it turned out!  I love how well the altered Totally White Trendy Twine matches the card.
After adhering the twine and frame to the crocus panel, I added Grape Fizz Sequins with Micro Glue Dots to give the appearance of a shaker card, but without the bulk of foam tape like a traditional shaker card.  I really love how it turned out!
