Trendy Baker's Twine - Halloween Peat Pot Gift Giving

Hello and Happy Friday!

 I'm back as the Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!! 
This is my last post! I've enjoyed my time
here on the Trendy Twine blog again and I hope I have brought some inspiration
for you to make some creations with your Trendy Twine!

Since it's my last post I thought I would share a Halloween Gifting Treat that incorporates this months featured Kraft Mini Seed Packets.

I started with some little peat pots and painted them up in pumpkin orange using Rit dye.  I than added pretty black lace to the bottom and top.  
  My next step was to make a fluffy layered bow which I added a 4 layered Totally Kraft Trendy Twine bow to the top which I anchored with a fancy button and greeting tag onto which I added to a gathering of tulle on the side of the pot.  
Next I started having fun layering some diecuts and images onto gold and orange tulle and add dimension adhesive for a 3D effect. I created a double bow using Totally Kraft Trendy Twine embellished with a darling black jewel.
Now comes the fun part. Finding some goodies to place inside for your gift.  I decorated a Kraft Mini Seed Packets by stamping an image using VersaMark ink. I then used Totally Kraft Trendy Twine to trim the outside of the Mini Seed Packets.  I stamped a 31 in black ink and added a vintage image to complete the look. 
This is the perfect size to fit most gift cards and makes an adorable way to give a Halloween Treat. Perhaps to those hardworking teachers or if you know someone who has a birthday around Halloween. It is something they can use year after year.

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Many Thanks!

Hello everyone! I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  I'm back today showcasing the Totally Kraft Trendy Twine.  I just love this for fall so I made a fall thank you card.

I used this cute acorn from my Cricut.  I used print then cut and added some clear Wink of Stella to it. Then I decided to cut an oval shape to put it in with my sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set.  It's perfect for a fall thank you.

I glued my Totally Kraft Trendy Twine around the oval and added the bow. And lastly, I added a few sequins from the Autumn Sequin Mix.  A perfect finish to the card!

Be sure to stop back for more fun projects!

Trendy Baker's Twine - Thanks Bunches

Hello and Happy Friday Crafty Peeps!
 I'm back again as the Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!

Today I'm sharing a card featuring our spotlight products this month. 
My card incorporates using the Kraft Mini Seed Packets that can be found here.  I added it to the card front as interactive way to add a special message that can also be used as a mini bookmark or tag if you so choose.
 Such a cute and fun way to add an extra surprise to your handmade creations!
Makes a darling bookmark. This comes as part of the set of the Kraft Mini Seed PacketsThe possibilities are endless! You could tuck a gift card or even a bunch of seeds for a gift.
My card front was very easy to put together, so it's up to your style and taste on how involved you want to get.  I started with a typical A2 card size and utilized a piece of pattern paper I had already cut from a previous make. I then took a length of
Totally Kraft Trendy Twine and wrapped the card front multiple times and tied off in a bow embellishing with a button and dew drop dot. Next I added my decorated Kraft Mini Seed Packet to the front of the card. Lastly I added a sentiment on a banner to the top left side of the card.

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ 40th Birthday Card

Hello all and happy Thursday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  This month we are spotlighting the very versatile Totally Kraft Trendy Twine.  I created this 40th birthday card using it.  It is 5x7", which is larger than the A2 size I normally make.
Using a White Large Tag-It, I cut a 40 out of it with my Silhouette Cameo and then added a sentiment from the APB Documenting the Everyday stamp set to the bottom.  Behind the 40 I adhered rows of Totally Kraft Trendy Twine to the back of the tag.  When that was done, I glued a Kraft Large Tag-It behind the white tag-it.  At the top of the tag, I added a Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot and some Totally Kraft Trendy Twine.
The base of the card was created with The Paper Studio's Stonewashed 4.5x6.5 paper pad and black cardstock.  I wrapped Totally Kraft Trendy Twine around the banners and added Chocolate Truffle Sequins to the top right corner.

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

Trendy Bakers Twine -- So Thankful

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  This month we are featuring Totally Kraft Trendy Twine and the Kraft Mini Seed Packets.  I also used the Happy Thanksgiving an Hello Fall Stamp Sets on today's project. These seed packets are so cute! You can buy just the envelopes or envelopes with cards.

I wanted to add a bit of color so I used an orange Zig Clean Color Marker that I used water with to flick the color on the envelopes with a paintbrush. Then I stamped the sentiment from Happy Thanksgiving at the top of the envelope.

The acorn and leaf is cut from my Cricut using print then cut. Then I added a bow of Totally Kraft Trendy Twine around the acorn stem and pop dotted it to the envelope.  

I stamped the cute acorn from Hello Fall on the top corner of the matching card and left the rest blank for my note.  I also tucked in two Life Saver Candies.

This is just the start of September so be sure to stop back to see more fun projects!

Planner Friday - August

Amanda here from She's Eclectic. I'm sorry, I know it is still August and officially summer for a few more weeks yet but we are one day away from September and I can't wait for the season to change!  I've had a lovely summer but autumn is my favourite time of year and I'm ready for it to begin so my theme for this month's Planner Friday is very autumnal and inspired by APB's Hello Fall stamp set!   I wanted to create a monthly overview for September as my children go back to school next week and it's time to get organised again after a rather relaxed August so I opened up my TN and got to work with washi tapestamps , pens and stickers!

Used but not pictured: Coffee paper clip

My colour theme for September is full of oranges, browns, yellows and reds with a bit of green mixed in there too based around the colours of autumn leaves.  I used the image stamps from my Hello Fall set to add some fun decoration to my pages and matched them with a leaf print washi tape to pull it all together.   I coloured in the fall images and then added a big coffee cup sticker because all I ever hear about in autumn is pumpkin spiced lattes!  I have never tried one because they really don't appeal to me but so many people seem obsessed with them maybe I should give one a go this year!

Hello Fall image stamps in action

The next thing I did was to add all of my reminders and appointments etc to the month with my At Home and More At Home stamp sets and the start of a new school year meant that it was time to use my School Days stamps again too!  Until the children actually go back and get their new timetables I could only use the First Day of School stamp and the Club one to remind me that my oldest two need to return forms to select which after school activities they will be doing this year.  Once I know what and when things will be happening I can use the rest of the set to record things like PTA events, welcome back assemblies and the all important picture day!  I have left myself plenty of room to add these things over the upcoming weeks so it should be pretty easy for me to stay on top of things, fingers crossed!

September in my TN

This is how my month looks at the moment, there's nothing too scary on there just yet and hopefully it will stay that way but if things do get crazy I know I can handle it all as long as it is in my planner!

If you want to have a go at getting more organised or just want to check out all the planner stamps then stop by the store now and take a peek!

See you next time!
