Hi Everyone !!!! Its Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug. I'm sooooo flippen excited my for very first post on Trendy Twine !!!!

This month we are highlighting one of my favorites Chocolate Truffle. It is so pretty with 2 tones of brown mixed with the white.

I created a banner for my friend who is FINALLY having her first baby.....and I wont mention that she is nearing 40 ! LOL!

Since I wasn't able to attend her shower I told her I would do all the party favors and decorations. She wanted a banner that would grow with him. So this is what I came up with ...these are the colors in his room.

Happy Birthday Lesley!!

Hi Trendy Twiners!!
I wanted to share a few photos of some Birthday Goodies I made for Lesley.
She was gone on vacation during her birthday so I wanted to send them and make sure she got them.

She loves pink and Hello Kitty so here is what I made her!
Her Card!! Love that cute winking Hello Kitty!!


I made her a sign for her office, room or anywhere she wants to put it.
I used homemade Glimmer mist but its hard to catch in a photograph.
(Just for you, so you don't have to share!)
Yummy Bucket full of CHOCOLATE!! MMmmmm!!!
I hope she loves all of it! I enjoyed making each one!! 
Happy Belated Birthday Lesley!! :)

Trendy Twine Tuesday - Advent Calendar

Hey everyone!

Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly :D Happy Tuesday! It's time for another Trendy Twine Tuesday!!


Today for my project I decided to make an advent calendar. I used the SVG Cuts Advent Calendar Kit. I bought this set last year but I wasn't able to make it in time so I was really excited to finally get to make it. Here it is:




The papers I used are Echo Park's Season's Greetings by Lori Whitlock. This is by far my favorite Christmas paper this year!

Here are some close ups:







I added a lot of little accents with the Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine. It may seem like an odd choice but I felt it might be overdoing it to use Peppermint Stick. I like the subtle and slightly rustic feel that the Chocolate Truffle twine adds.




AND I even have a couple SNEAK PEEKS for you! Inside some of the doors I hid some cute little sentiments :D These are just a TINY peek of the My Thoughts Exactly stamp sets we will be releasing on the 28th!





Don't you love it?? Now I need to fill it with goodies for my hubby, he LOVES advent calendars :P




I hope you are all having a great week so far!



I have a couple of reminders on my blog that I would like to share here as well:



*Check out the 2012 My Thoughts Exactly Design Team Call HERE!

*THIS Friday - My Thoughts Exactly Black Friday SALE! - The ONLY sale of the year!

*Be back her on Monday the 28th for a very merry stamp release!!

*Hop with us Dec 2nd-4th for tons of holiday inspiration plus GIVEAWAYS!

Trendy Twine Tuesday: Baby Carriage with Chocolate Truffle details


Hey everyone, Bee here for my Trendy Twine Tuesday!... :-)
The color we are showcasing this month is Chocolate Truffle, a beautiful mix of dark brown, caramel and white... :-)
For my project I decided to do a gift-card holder for friends who just welcomed their 6th boy!... :-)



It all started because of this cute little bear giftcard I found at Target and I instantly thought about the awesome little baby carriage Mary designed for SVGCuts. I was right because it was the perfect size, and they are quite a smashing duo I think... ;-)


I used some Chocolate Truffle Twine to make a little criss-cross pattern on the hood of the carriage, and also added some little bows on the sides.


Then I used some of the Sky Trendy Twine to make a little stitching on the sides too. It's hard to see in my pic but the cardstock is actually ivory colored and the twine is cream and pale blue colored. It has this soft vintage feel that makes it perfect for baby projects. :-)

If I had more time I would have added a line braided twine handle to mimic the carriage handlebar, but unfortunately time was of the essence... :-( This definitely was a fun project though and I love the result! :-)
