Guest Designer - Tanya Adams

Hello everyone!  This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner with my last post as this month's Guest Designer.  Before I share my project with you, I would like to thank Lesley Ann and her fabulous Design Team for allowing me to play along with them this month!  I've had a wonderful time - you ladies are awesome ♥

Okay - let me show what I have for you today.  With the 4th of July just around the corner, I wanted to do something with a bit of a patriotic feel to it.  I came across a lovely, dark blue candle at one of my favorite stores. It's a beautiful candle, but it was just crying out for a bit of bling........


After blinging up my candle, I thought I might give this as a gift, so I blinged up a plain white gift bag to match!  So, let me tell you how I put this together:

*I used two colors of twine to wrap around the neck of my candle and make that big, beautiful bow - Cranberry Twine and In The Navy Twine.  Aren't they gorgeous together?
* Using my Silhouette, I cut out a few stars in red and white cardstock.  I covered them in glitter and glued them to the bottom of the twine on my candle.

I love the way my candle turned out...


The gift bag was super easy to complete....


*I punched a few holes around the top of a plain white gift bag and threaded my twine through the holes.  I tied a big pretty bow off to one side of the bag.
*Next, I glued on a few of my glitter stars and a fun sentiment and it's all finished!

I hope you've enjoyed my project today!  Thanks again to all the wonderful Trendy Twine Ladies!  I've enjoyed being your Guest Designer this month!

Star Spangled Treats

Hi everyone!

Helen here from HTB Creations today.  I have a fun 4th of July bucket for you.  I saw this idea on Pick Your Plum and had just the right colors of Washi Tape to pull it off along with the perfect twine for it -- Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine!

 



It is pretty easy to make, but it does take a bit of patience to get the washi to stay straight.  You just need to rub out any bubbles that might pop up.  On the top twine, I just glued down the beginning and the end.  But on the bottom, it wasn't staying very well so I used a bit more glue throughout the process.


 
 
To finish it off, I really felt like it needed those pretty silver star sequins!

Don't miss out on the patriotic specials that you can find in the store.  That sale will be over very soon.  Over on the Trendy Twine Facebook page there is an awesome giveaway -- be sure to check it out and follow the directions to enter.  And last, but not least, there is a new color coming out on July 4th.  Bumblebee!!  Be sure to come back here for a fun debut :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

Trendy Stars & Stripes Treat Bag

Happy Trendy Tuesday, Twiners! It's Jessi here from Kissin' Krafts! I hope you have been enjoying this month's spotlight color - Stars & Stripes! I am in love with this twine the color combo is perfect for so many holidays! And of course, the Fourth of July!

Today I am sharing a very simple and easy to make treat bag! Perfect for the upcoming Fourth of July parties/picnics!


It all starts with a canvas treat bag (available HERE in the Trendy Twine Store), needle and Trendy Twine's Stars & Stripes. Stitch a large star on the front of the bag. I thought it looked better with the star off-centered. Once the star is complete, I stitched a large button using Trendy Twine's Totally White. To finish the bag, I stamped a festive tag and tied off with more Stars & Stripes!


Thank you for stopping by today! Looking for more Trendy Twine inspiration? Like our Facebook page and join our Twine It Up Facebook group!

Pinwheel Card

My friend's birthday is next week so I thought it would be fun to create a card for her using patriotic colors.  Summer reminds me of pinwheels so I used a tutorial on Pinterest to make these.  I just love the red, white and blue colors with the pop of yellow!
I added some Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine to the pinwheels and attached some ribbon to the bottom of the card.  A fun sentiment from Docerela Stamps finished off the card.  For more project information, please stop by my blog.
All of these fabulous colors are on sale, so stop by and check out the store.  Plus, there is a sneak peek of the newest color available on July 4th, you won't want to miss it!
Have a great Monday!  Sukie

Guest Designer - Tanya Adams

Hello everyone!  This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner bringing you my second project as this month's Guest Designer here at Trendy Twine!

I'm a list maker and I love pretty little notebooks to keep by my phone, in my purse, and to give to friends and family.  I'm excited to show you my latest little notebook that I just finished putting together.....


Let me tell you how I put this little cutie together:
* I used a Spellbinders die to cut my covers from lightweight cardboard.  Then, using the same die, I cut out some pretty cardstock for the covers of my notebook and the inside pages (I used regular printer paper for the inside pages)
* I decorated my front cover with the cute little bird and musical notes that I cut out with my Cameo.


* After decorating my cover, I bound the covers and inside pages together using my Cinch.
* Next, I cut several pieces of Blue Berry Twine about 5 - 6 inches long.  Taking 2 strands at a time, I tied them around each wire.  I repeated the process 2 more times, giving each wire 6 strands of twine total for a nice, full look.
* After tying on all the twine, I trimmed off the ends for a nice, even appearance.


I totally adore the beautiful mix of blues in this Blue Berry Twine!  So pretty!
 
Well, that's about it for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be back with one more project to share with you on Friday, June 28th.  I hope to see you then!

Happy Flag Day

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap and
I have another fun treat idea to share with you using one of the special colors of the month  
Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine

This has got to be one of my favorite colors, a twist of red, white, and blue...Perfect for all those patriotic projects! And if you are a blog follower of mine, you know I have been making quite a few projects over the last month using this twist. 
(you can see them HEREHERE, and HERE)


  Flag Day is on Friday and I thought I would celebrate by making a fun little treat bag using the super adorable Tiny Clear Flat Bottom Lunch Bags that you can pick up in the Trendy Twine store. 
They are the perfect size to hold lots of treats...in my case I ended up filling it with some salt water taffy. There are 6 pieces in this bag but there is plenty of room to add double that! Aother the great thing about these clear bags is you can add so many different treats to them and embellish them is a variety of different ways!! The possibilities are endless!
Moving onto my topper I used my Cameo and a bracket cut file to design the actual topper. I double layered it using Navy and White card stock and then stamping my sentiment from
My Creative Time's- Many Greetings stamp set. For the heart flag, I used another file I found going through the Silhouette store and hid the actual stars that were meant to be cut out. I remembered that I just picked up some star sequins that I thought would make a great added embellishment.  I finished my topper off with a Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine bow and it is now ready to be given out :)

 Well I sure hope you have enjoyed my project! Make sure to check out the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine along with these other awesome colors..... all on sale for the month of June!
You can see them all HERE at the store!

Thanks for Your Service

Hello everyone!

Just a quick card with some fabulous Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine on it :)  I love this twine (but then again, I think I love it all!)

I was asked to do a card demo in July and my mother-in-law took some of my cards to show the ladies.  One of them asked that I make cards for her to send to a troop for the June package she is sending. I spent an entire Saturday trying to come up with something and this is what I ended up with.  Sorry the picture is not exactly the best.  It was cloudy and now the cards are on their way.



This twine is perfect for July, so don't wait, get yours now!  It on sale along with some other great colors for the 4th.  There is even a mini special so you can try all 4 colors out.  


Have a fabulous day!!

Guest Designer - Tanya Adams

Hello everyone!  This is Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner and I am so excited to be the Guest Designer for the month of June here at Twine it up with Trendy Twine!  Thanks so much to Lesley and the Design Team Members for having me over to play!

For my first project, I made a special thank you for a very special friend and I can't wait to share it with you.....


I came across this fun black and white polka dot bucket and thought it really need a punch of yellow to bring it to life.  So, I got out my beautiful Lemon Tart Twine and got busy!


Starting at the bottom of my bucket, I wrapped my twine around the bucket going up about 3 inches.  I used dots of Glossy Accents along the way to hold my twine in place.

I also created a fun accent piece by wrapping Lemon Tart twine around a 3 inch piece of cardstock several times.  I slid the twine off and tied it in the center with a short piece of twine, then trimmed off the end pieces.  I added a black button to the center and glued it into place at the top of my bucket using a hot glue gun.
All of my decorative pieces received a touch of twine:
1)  The center of my flower is covered with Lemon Tart Twine
2) The cute little bumble bee has a sweet bow made from Tickled Pink Twine
3)  The stick portion of my chalkboard plant marker is covered with Lemon Tart Twine,  I think you can see it better in this photo.....
And there you go...a special thank you gift for a special friend!

I think this beautiful, bright shade of twine added so much color and fun to my gift...


Isn't it pretty?....and just perfect for summer!
Well, that's all I have for today. I hope you enjoyed my project and I look forward to sharing another fun Trendy Twine project with you next Friday!

Look who's 10!

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap and
I have a fun treat idea to share with you using one of the special colors of the month  

 it is a great mix of navy and red Trendy Twine perfect for just about anything.... 
and it is on sale all month!

So for my project
I am getting a jump start on my son's 10th birthday party and and wanted to make a cute treat that he could give to some of his party guests. 
He is a HUGE bubble gum lover so my project is right up his alley!

We always tend to forget that sometimes simple can really make a great project and I hope you agree that this is one of them!
I used 2 of the Skinny Candy Chutes 
(did you know that Anne's Paper Boutique carried them?? Well now you do...LOL!)
and filled them with some Red/White and Blue gumballs. These boxes are PERFECT for holding the small bulk gumballs and jackpot for the kids because I only picked out the colors I wanted for my project and the rest they get!

Next for my sentiment I used My Creative Time~Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies along with the All Around Birthday Time stamp set and added them to white and navy card stock. I punched a small hole in the scalloped die cut, popped up the circle to add more dimension and it was ready to be added to my clear box. I then wrapped my Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine several times around the clear box and added my sentiment tag tied with a big bow.
So here is what they look like.....Fun project right??? And very easy to make! The great thing about these clear boxes is you can add so many different treats to them and embellish them is a variety of different ways!!
So what do you think??? My son already wanted to dig into one....but he has to wait until Monday...on his birthday!

 Well I sure hope you have enjoyed my project! Make sure to check out the Berries Jubilee along with these other awesome colors..... all on sale for the month of June!
You can see them all HERE at the store!

Trendy Beach Fun

Good morning, Trendy Twiners! It's Jessi from Kissin' Krafts!  (Hop on over to see my Trendy Twine Giveaway!!) Have you enjoyed the summer weather yet, and brought out the (dreaded) swimsuit? I have yet to dust off mine, putting it off as long as possible! Although, my mind might change with this fun summer card! 

Here is the card I made using Trendy Twine's Spotlight Twine - Stars and Stripes:


Stars and Stripes is one of my favorite Trendy Twine colors available! The color combo is PERFECT! So many wonderful possibilities available! Today I took the simple approach and created a twine clothesline. The beach background is created by blending inks. To add a special beachy touch, I took some beach stamps and repeated the images throughout the sand.
