To create the card, I used several prints from the Doodlebug Design 6x6" School Days paper pad. I used an edge die for the blue layer and wrapped the Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine around it and added a bow. On the lined paper, I pierced holes into it and threaded Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine through the holes to read "A+". I stamped a sentiment from the Choose Happy stamps in red ink at the top of the page and added the date my kids are going back to school. I cut the chalkboard with my Silhouette Cameo and popped it up with foam tape. The finishing touch was a trio of GMD Peacock clear enamel dots.
I wanted a pretty simple card since I was using a cute beach towel adorned with Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine. I found a cute pattern paper to match the twine and just lined the edge with the twine. I unfurled it a bit to give it a very full effect.
I love Swedish Fish so when I saw a bag of mini ones, I knew they would be perfect to fit in my Clear Small Pillow Boxes and they would go very well with the Trendy Twine I was using this month. I added the candy to the boxes and wrapped the Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine around the box several times.
Next I found a fish to cut out on my Cricut and punched a small hole near the tail. I stamped the Just Keep Swimming sentiment from the Choose Happy set on the fish. I mean this is a perfect sentiment these days and goes so well with the candy. I then added a few small Metallic Red Medley sequins to the fish and tied it on with a bow.
These treats would be perfect for a swim party, if we can have a small one soon, or to send to a friend for a pick me up!

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here today sharing a card that my son, Levi, created for his little sister for her birthday! He used one of our featured colors of Trendy Twine of the month, Lemon Peppermint.
Since Autumn was having an Elmo birthday theme, Levi wanted to use Sesame Street patterned paper, which was super cute! He created the vinyl words in SCAL4 and used a textured black vinyl to add a little visual interest. The tag was a Cranberry Tag-It that we trimmed short and was stamped on with a sentiment from the APB Smile stamp set. To finish off the tag, he added a Lemon Midnight Trendy Page Dot and a tie of Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine. The card was a hit! Autumn loved it!
Happy August, Trendy friends! This year is just flying by isn't it?
We are spotlighting two colors this month: Cherry Lemonade and Lemon Peppermint. We are so thrilled to have Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine back in stock after being sold out for almost a year. Yay!! It's a beautiful twist of lemon yellow and cranberry red. Lemon Peppermint is a festive mix of lemon yellow, white, and cranberry red.
The yellow and red combination is so bright and cheery and adds a nice pop of color to your crafting. Both twists are absolutely gorgeous and would be perfect for your Summer or back-to-school projects. You can mix both colors with Lemon Tart, Totally Lemon, Cranberry, and Totally Red. All of these colors were originally designed to be used together.
Our Samplers are petite sets of Trendy Twine goodness; and they are a great way to add to your twine collection. Each color is ten yards in length and comes hand wound onto a wooden clothespin for easy use and storage.
I have had this really cute paper for a while and it goes great with our spotlight colors this month! I love having generic cards on hand. This one is perfect and once again I'm using the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine for a theme other than the traditional Holiday theme. I love that the Navy Tag-Its was THE perfect holder for this die cut.
