Trendy Bakers Twine~Halloween Tag Art Collection

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here. It is definitely getting cooler, so fall and Halloween are on my mind! Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine, one of our featured twines of the month, works perfectly for both of those themes. Today I am sharing a Halloween tag art collection.
All of the patterned papers used are from G45's Steampunk Spells 8x8" pad. I used the colors within it for inspiration for the entire project!  I started with a Manila Library Pocket and decorated it with patterned paper that was wrapped with Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine. I used Scor-tape to adhere the patterned papers. The flower was made by die cutting flower layers, spritzing them with water, crumpling them up, then letting them dry and layering them with a brad. To embellish, I glued Spellbinding Sequins to the front and tied a key on with a bow of Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine.
It go inside the library pocket, I created three tags.  The first was a Lemon Tag-It decorated with an Aqua Midnight Trendy Page DotAqua Licorice Trendy Twine, and a panel from the paper pad.
Next up, a Sky Bracket Card with a panel from the patterned paper, a stamped sentiment from the APB Happy Halloween stamp set, and a bat sequin from the Spellbinding Sequins mix.
Lastly, I embellished a Mango Chunky Tag-It with another patterned paper panel and attached aqua ribbon from the Chevron Ribbon Sampler with a staple at the top of the tag.  This project was a little out of my comfort zone, but I absolutely loved creating it!  Wouldn't it be FABULOUS with shabby chic or elegant feminine themes?  I'd love to see if you try this idea with different twists!

Trendy Bakers Twine~Happy Birthday Tom!

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here with an extra special post. It happens to be Lesley's dad's 80th birthday today, and this is the card that I created for him.  Join us in wishing him all the best on his special day!
One of the things Tom likes is vintage cars, so I knew this Unity Stamp Co. image would be a great focal point for the card!  It was stamped in Scrapbook.com Dark Chocolate ink and accented with white colored pencil.  Both the image and patterned paper panels were die cut with GMD wonky stitched rectangle dies.  The fun vintage license plate paper is from DCWV's Treasure stack.  Around the patterned paper, I wrapped orange ribbon from the Chevron Ribbon Sampler and Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine. I then adhered that layer to the background with scor-tape. After that, I added the car panel with foam tape.  For a sentiment, I used a Petite Kraft Metal Rim Tag on which I stamped words from the Hello Fall Planner Stamp Set in dark chocolate ink.  Once that was glued to the front, I also embellished with two square brads in the top left corner.  I hope Tom enjoys this card and has a birthday filled with joy!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Happy Fall

Hi Trendy Fans!

We are excited to bring you the latest and greatest in paper crafting and creative ideas. This month, we're shining a spotlight on Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine. It's a shade that exudes both elegance and vibrancy, making it perfect for all kinds of crafting projects. I'm Shelly from My Paper Love, and I'm thrilled to showcase a treat using the spotlight color.

For this project, I'm starting with a simple yet stylish base: Black Chevron Bags. These bags offer a sophisticated backdrop that makes the Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine and fall-themed tag really pop.

I wanted a fall-themed tag that would complement the Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine and the Black Chevron Bags. So, I decided to create my own using free pumpkin graphics and some carefully selected fonts. 

I began by finding pumpkin graphics online and came across an aqua blue pumpkin and quickly realized this graphic captured the essence of fall and added a touch of rustic charm I was looking for. You can easily find free graphics on various design resource websites.

On the tag, I added the "Happy Fall" and once the design was complete, I printed it out on high-quality white card stock. I used a paper cutter to trim the tags to the desired size and adhered to the White Tag-it. 

To add that extra special touch, I threaded a length of Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine through the hole and tied it around the bag. The aqua color beautifully contrasted with the black chevron pattern, creating an eye-catching effect.

And there you have it—a delightful fall treat presentation that's sure to impress. Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine brings a touch of sophistication and fun to your crafting projects, and paired with the Black Chevron Bags and charming fall tags, you have a winning combination.

We hope this project inspires you to get creative and explore the endless possibilities of paper crafting. Whether it's for a special occasion or just to add a bit of joy to your day, we're here to help you make every project a masterpiece.



Stay tuned for more crafting ideas, tips, and trends right here. Until next time, happy crafting!

Tag Tuesday~Scarecrow Tag

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here. For the remainder of the year, I am going to be featuring quick tag ideas using products from Annie's Paper Boutique.  This week, I am sharing a simple fall tag with a sweet scarecrow on it.
I started with a Kraft Chunky Tag-It and stamped a sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set using Twilight VersaFine Clair ink.  I used a Round Scarecrow No. 2 Vintage Inspired Tag as the focal point.  It was matted with navy blue paper that was die cut with a GMD x-stitched circle die.  Isn't that scarecrow adorable?!  It comes with lovely inked edges that add such a sweet vintage feel to it.  I popped it up with foam tape onto the kraft tag.  At the top of the tag, I added Dark Citrus Trendy Twine and a bow of Totally Navy Trendy Twine, then finished it off with Blue Berry sequins and Chocolate Truffle sequins adhered with Bearly Art precision tip glue.  Didn't it turn out cute?

Trendy Bakers Twine~SheetLoad of Gaming Cards

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here with a SheetLoad of gaming cards for all of the boy birthdays I have coming up in our family!  It worked out great with the Trendy Twine featured this month, Aqua Midnight Trendy Twine.
I used papers from The Paper Studio's Boy paper pad with the August 2023 SheetLoad of Cards sketch to create these 8 cards.  I thought Tag-Its were the perfect blank slate to use as a focal point on them.  For half of the cards, I used Lemon Tag-Its, stamped the sentiment from the Smile stamp set in black, added a Aqua Midnight Trendy Page DotAqua Midnight Trendy Twine, and a fussy cut video game controller from the patterned paper.  The tag was popped up with foam tape and I added a trio of Blue Berry Sequins around it.
For the other half of the cards, I made the focal point in very much the same way with the exception of using Leaf Green Tag-Its instead of the Lemon ones.  I also placed it on a different area of the card front.
Here is a look at all 8 of the cards I created.  I really love how they turned out and will be great for all video game loving kids.

Trendy Bakers Twine~Lemonade Card

Hello all! Beth from Beth's Beauties here. This month we are are featuring the summery twists of Lemon Peppermint Trendy Twine and Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine.  My lemonade card has Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine on it. 
I personally think lemonade is a sign of summer, so my mind automatically went there with these colors of Trendy Twine.  Luckily, I had these stamps from Unity's Totally and Utterly Amazing set that were perfect for that theme!  Once the image was stamped with VersaFine Clair Nocturne onto watercolor paper, I watercolored it with Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Weathered Wood, and Mowed Lawn.  I corner chomped the corners and glued it to a Lemon Bracket Card.  Those cards are flat, so they also work perfectly as layers on cards or scrapbook layouts!  After putting a thin line of Bearly Art glue around the image, I lined it with Lemonade Trendy Twine and added a bow in the bottom right corner and popped it onto the card with foam tape.  The sentiment panel also had Lemonade Trendy Twine wrapped around it and was popped up with foam tape.  The finishing touch on the card was a trio of Frosted Cranberry Sequins adhered with mini Glue Dots.
