Planner Friday - May

Summer is just around the corner and I can't wait!  Spring has been a mixed bag this year, we've had a lot of rain and even some snow this side of the pond so I am looking forward to spending time outside in the sunshine more than ever right now.  Today I thought I would document my ideal summer in my travellers notebook using some of my favourite APB stamps to really get me in the mood!

My perfect summer

So as you can see most of my favourite summer activities involve some kind of food!  Whenever I think of summer I always picture BBQs, ice cream and chilled glasses of wine, get togethers with family and friends and adventures!  

I used stamps from the FoodiesDrinks & More and Perfect Pairs sets for the images in my spread and then coloured them in using pencil crayons.  The sun stamp was from the How's The Weather? set and I used yellow ink for that one so it would be nice and bright.

Then I used some stamps from the Choose HappyYou & MeDocumenting The Everyday #1 and #2 sets to add some quotes that remind me of summer to the pages!

Weekend plans

I used part of  Weekend stamp but I didn't ink the whole thing as I wanted to add an S to the end of it to make Weekends instead.  I love busy Saturdays followed by lazy Sundays especially in the summer!    

What are your favourite things about summer?  

If you fancy creating your own journalling spread then stop by the store now and pick up some stamps to get you started!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- You're Incredible!

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  Today I have a card using the Celebration Trendy Twine and some sequins from the Peppermint Icicle and Bumblebee Sequin Mixes.

I had so much fun designing this card.  Since this twine has a Disney vibe, I looked through my Disney images in my Cricut Design Space. These characters have a lot of layers to cut out, but I flattened her and printed and cut her out. Next, I decided I wanted the sentiment to say You're Incredible, so I found a font and had my machine write it on the front with a red glitter pen.

To add in the yellow color from the twine, I cut out a yellow starburst which is also from the same cartridge that Mrs. Incredible is from too.  Then I added my Celebration Trendy Twine above the sentiment and pop dotted up my die cuts.

The last touch was to add my sequins.  I pulled out my Bumblebee Sequins for the yellow and black and my Peppermint Icicle Sequins to add some red.

I think this turned out so fun! Keep checking back for more fun projects.

Have an incredible day!!

 Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a party treat with a familiar FUN theme.   I love these colors and love the spotlight twine this month Celebration Trendy Twine .  I wanted to make personalized treats, so instead of printing names and tags.... I used some cardboard letters. 

Of course these treats start with a GREAT little treat box from Annie Paper Boutique  the Small Pillow Boxes.  

Next I filled them weth color coordinated candy.

I wrapped each treat with Celebration Trendy Twine and added the cardboard letter.

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

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Happy Treats

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  This month we are featuring Celebration Trendy Twine and the Clear Pillow Boxes.  I used the Medium Clear Pillow Boxes for today's post. Additionally, I used White Tag-Its, Choose Happy Stamp set, and Bumblebee and Peppermint Stick Sequins.

I had a cute sticker set from Recollections sitting on my table.  I thought they would be perfect for the colors in the twine.  Bonus--they are scratch and sniff stickers!  That was a surprise when I opened them. 

Next I stamped my sentiments on my White Tag Its from the Choose Happy Stamp Set.  Then I added some yellow and black sequins from the Bumblebee Sequins Mix and red sequins from the Peppermint Stick Sequins Mix.

After filling the Medium Clear Boxes with candy, I wrapped my Celebration Trendy Twine around the box long ways a few times and tied a knot.  Then I tied on my Celebration pom poms that I made for this.

I just love these clear boxes -- they are so fun to fill and add some decorations to! 

Be sure to keep checking in to see all the fun projects this month!!

Planner Friday - April

Wow, Planner Friday came around again so quickly!  I feel like the months are speeding by and it will be summer before we know it.  Though that's not a bad thing, I can't wait for some sunshine! 

For today's post I wanted to show you how I use my Annie's Paper Boutique stamps to help keep me organised and add a little fun to my planner pages too.  

I knew when I started planning my week that I was going to be busier than usual so I added plenty of check boxes for my daily to dos using a stamp from the Check It Off set and then added my reminders and lists with stamps from the At Home and School Days sets.  I reinforced the holes in my pages with colourful Trendy Page Dots, paired them with some bright and cheery washi tape and added one of my favourite coffee planner clips.

Talking of coffee I knew I was going to need a lot of caffeine see me through the week so I made it the theme for my pages!   There is a special set of  APB stamps for my fellow coffee addicts, aptly called Need Coffee and they are the perfect size for planner pages as they are quite small so you will still have have plenty of space left to make your notes around them.  I also used a larger coffee stamp from the Perfect Pairs set in my Sunday section as I have less to do that day and had more space for decoration.  The last thing I did was to colour in the stamps with fineliners and pencil crayons and then I was ready to face the week!

My week fuelled by coffee

I have to admit I am glad it is Friday now as my week is winding down a little.  I might have had a lot to do but every time I opened my planner I was greeted with a cheerful spread which made my tasks seem less daunting.  

How do you get through a busy week?

Don't forget to stop by the store to check out all the lovely planning supplies and I'll be back again next month for another Planner Friday!

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thinking of You

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  I have a quick and simple card to share with you today.  I used Cotton Candy Trendy Twine along with some Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry Sequins.

I made this card on my Cricut.  It was a pre-designed card but it had a different sentiment to write out.  I changed it to the Thinking of You and picked a cute font.  It cut out all the pieces and wrote it in a black pen. 

I decided to add another layer under the pattern paper I picked out. My Cotton Candy Trendy Twine is wrapped around a few times and then tied in a bow.  Then I put it on with foam tape to pop it up a bit. I added the Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry sequins and then decided to outline the words with some fun Wink of Stella pens.  I love to add sparkle :)

Don't forget about the great April Treat Packaging Bundle available for a few more days.  Don't miss out!
