Trendy Bakers Twine~Back to School Printables

Good morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  If you have school age kids or grandkids, you probably have back to school on your mind like I do!  I always love giving my kids a little treat for the first day and Annie's Paper Boutique just released several new printables for school that made that task a snap.  I used three of the four new printables on today's project plus both of our featured twines of the month, Cranberry, and Totally Red.
First up, let's talk about the 2x8" Zip Bags.  They are the absolute perfect fit for 6 pencils or many other combinations of school supplies or goodies!  You can see below that I added erasers and pencils to one while keeping the second with only pencils inside.
All patterned papers used for today's projects are from Echo Park's Back To School 6x6" paper pad.  the treat on the left was dressed up with a belly band, Cranberry Trendy TwineCranberry Tag-It, a die cut dark gray circle and a Happy First Day of School Print & Punch Tag.  For the second treat bag, I added the Let's Start This Year Off Write Printable Bag Topper, which fits these 2x8" Zip Bags perfectly, to the top.  I then added a belly band embellished with Cranberry Trendy Twine and Twisted Lime Sequins.
Next up, I created little notecards to match the pencil treat bags.  They are made with more of the patterned paper mentioned earlier, embellished with label die cuts, Totally Red Trendy Twine and a sentiment stamp from the APB Smile stamp set.  I love how the one really looks like a composition notebook!  I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper to mimic the corners of the labels.
Last, but not least, I made a quick treat for my daughter who still stays at home with me so she would feel special too!  I took a box of crayons and wrapped it with Cranberry Trendy Twine, added a Cranberry Chunky Tag-It and a Here's to a Bright Year Printable Tag which I rounded the corners on and popped up with foam dimensionals.  Literally a 2 minute project, but she will love it to pieces.  Be sure to check out the printable I didn't use this time called Little Pick Me Ups Printable Tags that are perfect for school or any occasion!
 
Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Trendy Bakers Twine - Thinking of you

 Hi Trendy Fans!

I'm back with another project using our spotlight colors of the month, Bubblegum Taffy and Twisted Gumball. Bubblegum Taffy is a festive mix of pink, white, and aqua; Twisted Gumball is a wonderful combination of pink and blue.

This is Shelly with My Paper Love and I have a card to share with you today.

I know this is a little different than my normal style as I tend to stay clean and simple. This card has a lot going on, but in a good way!

I used some washi tape on the base of the card and stamped it with the “thinking of you” stamp from the Smile set.Then I added some flower die cuts. To each flower I added a little bit of both:

Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine


To give this card the sparkle that it deserves I added some APB sequins! Thanks for stopping by all month and hope we've left you inspired to create something with Trendy Twine!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Hello

 Hi Trendy Fans!

Have you enjoyed the "Sweet" inspiration this month? Well it's not over just yet... This is Shelly with My Paper Love and I have another project to share using a sweet theme and some gorgeous Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine.



This is a cute tag that would be perfect for any occasion: a new neighbor, for a thank you treat, to cheer up a friend, anything really. I love making tags like this and just having them in case I need them.
I started with the APB White Large Tag Its

These are 2-1/2" wide and 3-3/8" tall so perfect for a small die cut or cute stamp. For this tag I added some washi tape and a sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set


I placed an ice cream die cut in the center and tied it with Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine


I hope this leaves you inspired to create something with Twine and paper :)

Trendy Bakers Twine~Pop-Ice Pals

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  I created a scrapbook layout that features a brand new product that hit the Annie's Paper Boutique store...Chunky Tag-Its!  They are 2-3/4" wide by 3-1/2" tall so you can fit a lot onto one of these tags.  Guess what?  They fit the notebook paper stamp from the APB Get It Done stamp set PERFECTLY.  Can you tell how excited I am about these Chunky Tag-Its?!  Anyway, on to my project...
I took a photo of my daughter and her cousin BFF eating Pop-ice together and thought it would be fun to make a scrapbook layout for it.  The papers are from The Paper Studio's Pixey Stix paper pad.  All of the Trendy Twine accents on the page are Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine.
I created the title in SCAL 4.  One tip I have is to use adhesive vinyl for thin words because they always cut beautifully and already have adhesive on them!  The Pop-ice were just strips of paper that I put VersaMark on and clear embossing powder.  I think they turned out looking pretty real!  The bow of Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine was a fun addition.
The Pink Chunky Tag-It was so much fun to create and I am definitely going to use these more on layouts and simply as tags.  As I mentioned earlier, I used the APB Get It Done stamp set with VersaFine Clair inks in Morning Mist and Warm Breeze to stamp it.  I recommend using a stamp platform to get the notebook page as centered as possible. You can see I added even more Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine on the tag!  As a finishing touch, I glued on sequins from the Raspberry Cupcake and Blue Berry mixes.

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

 If you don't need a full spool of Twisted Gumball, there are petite spools!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Have a Happy Day


 Hi Trendy Fans!

Are you ready for a fun month of "Sweet" inspiration? This is Shelly from MyPaperLove sharing a card using the spotlight twine Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.

Okay this twine just screams ice cream! I absolutely love Aqua Blue, White, & Pink and so this is just as perfect as you can get! I made a fun little card that reminds me of an ice cream shop with the striped canopy and aqua walls. 



I used quite a few dies to make this card. I started with the rectangular mat and sized the pink striped paper for the top trim piece but wanted it to resemble a canopy. So I used a scalloped die to create the trim piece.
Next, I cut a square mat and placed the fun ice cream shape on the square mat. I tied the ice cream with the lovely Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set.

I feel so inspired by these colors and have created a few projects this month so please check back and see what the team has created this month. 

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

Trendy Bakers Twine~Ice Cream Card

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here today. I don't know about you, but we have been having some HOT temperatures lately, and what better treat on these hot summer days could there be than ice cream?!
I used papers and tags from the Authentique Sweetness Collection on this card.  From Annie's Paper Boutique5" Paper Doily that I trimmed the sides of and glued it to the background, a Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot on the front tag, and Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine at the top of all three tags.  To embellish, I added pearl pen dots in bronze.  Adhesives used include ATG, Bearly Art glue and foam tape.

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