Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Layout in Purples

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  This time I have a scrapbook layout to share.  While this layout isn't flashy or bright or elaborate, it is one of my favorites because a little bit of my heart is on this page.  The photo on it is of my precious baby girl during her "newborn" photo shoot in 2018.  It is the most perfect picture of her and it holds such a special place in my heart.  I guess that is the reason we scrapbook, right?! To preserve those memories!
First up, I started with papers from DCWV's Lilac Love stack and one piece from DCWV's Silver Leaf stack.  I decided on the placement of the elements on the page and thought the simple title "Love" would be perfect.  That was cut from vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo.  I knew I wanted to make the picture pop as the focal point, so I outlined the tan photo mat with Grape Fizz Trendy Twine using Lineco Adhesive in a precision tip bottle.
I knew I wanted to add some sparkle to the page, so I used Grape Fizz Sequins, plus white and silver gems to add some visual interest.
Last, but not least, I added a duo of tag-its.  One of my favorite things to do is to layer a darker color under the lighter one so the top tag really pops!  The supplies I used for this one include: Lavender Tag-ItGrape Tag-It, Krazy for Kraft Trendy Page Dot, Grape Fizz Trendy Twine, Documenting the Everyday stamp set, Charcoal ink, flower die and gems.

Trendy Bakers Twine--Just for You!

Hi everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations. It's been a while but I have some cute, quick treats to share with you.  Everything I used is from Annie's Paper Boutique: Grape Fizz and Limeade Trendy Twine, Candy Cubes 2x2 Clear Boxes, Lavender and Spring Green Tag-Its, Trendy Page Dots, and the You've Got Mail Stamp Set.  

I skipped right to Easter since I saw some chocolate eggs in the store.  I love to buy the holiday candies LOL! I filled one 2x2 Clear Box with the pink and purple candy eggs and the other with the green and yellow green eggs. 


I stamped the Just for You from the You've Got Mail Stamps on the Tag-It's that I cut down a bit and rounded the edges I cut. That's since the box is small, but I can use the tag and still see the fun stuff.  Then I added a matching Trendy Page Dot to them. 


The last step is wrapping my Grape Fizz and then my Limeade Trendy Twine around the boxes both ways, adding my tag, and tying my bow. Easy!

Items used:






Did you see that all the green Trendy Twine colors are on sale this month?! There are samplers too.  Here's my favorite one, the Limeade Trendy Bakers Twine Sampler. This set has Limeade, Totally Limeade, and Totally White Trendy Twine.

Have a wonderful day!!

Trendy Bakers Twine - March Product Spotlight

Happy March, Trendy Twine Friends!

Time is flying by. It's hard to believe that Spring is right around the corner. Winter completely missed southern Texas this time around, so I'm a little bummed to see the weather warming up so quickly. But it will be nice to see the sunshine!

Since St. Patrick's Day is this month, we've got our beautiful green Trendy Twine
colors on sale all month long. It's a great time to stock up.







If you're in a hurry for St. Patrick's Day tags, try our Happy St. Patrick's Day Print and Punch Tags. There are 19 tags on the sheet and they measure a little under 1-3/4" in diameter.

Helen used one of the tags on her cute little mailbox along with some Limeade
 and Totally Limeade Trendy Twine colors. 


We hope all of these festive greens have given you some crafty inspiration. 
Be sure to tag us on Instagram or Facebook so we can see your wonderful projects.

Trendy Bakers Twine~Turquoise Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with this somewhat atypical valentine.  Instead of the traditional reds and pinks, the primary color is turquoise!
Truly the reason this card even came to be was because of that pretty flower sticker behind the heart.  I searched through my craft room to find ALL the coordinating things!  I decided to have it peek from behind a die cut heart that was popped up with foam tape.  The white panel was cut using a GMD pleated square die.
The background floral paper is from The Paper Studio Pretty Petals paper pad and the bottom layer was die cut with a GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die.  before adhering everything to the card base, I wrapped Tickled With Teal Trendy Twine around it, and added a small die cut tag with a bow.  The sentiment was stamped in Scrapbook.com Mermaid hybrid ink using a Raisin Boat stamp.

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

There also have been SEVERAL new sampler sets added to the store, including Valentine's day ones.  Here is just one example called "Lovely".

Trendy Bakers Twine~Valentine Muslin Bag

Good morning friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today.  I am back with another Valentine's Day treat that uses products from Annie's Paper Boutique
I started with a Cotton Muslin Bag and decided to stamp images from the You & Me stamp set onto it.  Before stamping, make sure to add a piece of cardstock into the middle of the bag for stability and to prevent ink from transferring to the back of the bag.  The colors of ink I used were Scrapbook.com Mermaid, Candy Shop Pink, and Cardinal Red.  I used my stamp platform so I could double stamp because the bag will soak up a bit of the ink as you stamp.  I also used my embossing heat gun to thoroughly dry the ink before I did anything else with the bag.
Instead of using the tie that comes on the bag, I decided to change it up a bit and use Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine to tie it shut after I had filled it with treats.  I added a die cut heart onto the Trendy Twine before making the bow so it could be used as a tag.  A simple but unique way to present Valentine's Day treats!

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

There also have been SEVERAL new sampler sets added to the store, including Valentine's day ones.  Here is just one example called "Rosy".

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Valentine Treat Tube

Good morning friends! Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today. I am getting geared up for Valentine's Day so that is the project theme that I wanted to go with today.
I started with one of the fun Kraft Window Tubes that are available in the Annie's Paper Boutique store. They are shipped flat so you can easily stamp on them. The APB stamp sets that I used are You & MeWe Go Together, and Perfect Pairs.
The sentiments were stamped in black ink using the We Go Together stamp set. I also stamped the images from the Perfect Pairs stamp set in black ink. I then colored the images with colored pencils. The stamped hearts were from the You & Me stamp set and I used Scrapbook.com Candy Shop Pink and Mixed Berry inks for those. The finishing touch was wrapping Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine around the tube and then I added a package of powdered donuts.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
There also have been SEVERAL new sampler sets added to the store, including Valentine's day ones.  Here is just one example called "Lovely".
