Rockets Red Glare

Hello, hello!  Design Team member Becki here with a cute little project that I wasn't sure would work out too well - stand alone twine stars.  I know Fourth of July has come and gone this year but I couldn't get the Star Spangled Banner out of my head (probably because it's one of the only songs I can play on the piano).  With that song came the idea of a rocket ship with stars trailing behind it.  But since the Fourth is over, what would I use it for?  Along came my 2 year old nephew who is obsessed with Buzz Lightyear.  Buzz has to use a ship to go from planet to planet right?  Why not make a rocket ship mobile to hang in his room?

Different, huh?  I thought this month's Trendy Twine color Berry was perfect but couldn't help use some Blue Berry besides to match my rocket ship.  Guess I just can't get the good ol' red, white and blue colors out of my head.

I already know Logan likes it because he kept trying to grab it and repeating "Buzz" over and over.  This mobile is really going to look cool hanging in his Toy Story room.  The stars are super easy to make.  Just visit my blog, The Happy Card Encouragement Factory, for details on how to make the stars.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Berrylicious Trendy Twine Projects

Hi Everyone:
Here is my second Trendy Twine DT project this month using Berry Trendy Twine. I had such fun making all these lucious berry items with this wonderful twine. I made the card first and then went from there. I had fun with the strawberry and am sure that my father-in-law will enjoy the cherry strawberry preserves that are in this jar which I made for his birthday.  Stop by my blog for more details.

 Be sure to also check back often at the blog for some wonderful Trendy Twine inspiration. Hugs,

New Trendy Twine Colors

I already shared this on the Trendy Twine facebook page,
but wanted to share here as well.

I'm really loving that Nautical one. 
The navy and yellow look gorgeous together.

Spools are available for purchase in the store, but will ship after August 8th. 
Remember, we do have many more colors coming this summer.

Happy Saturday!

Simple, but 'Trendy" use of Twine

Hello, Trendy Twiners! Thanks for stopping by today! Sometimes as I am creating a card/project, I stare at what I think is the final product. I stare at it thinking there is something missing. My favorite go-to product is of course TWINE! There are so many things that you can do with twine, from a simple bow to creating a detailed twine embellishment. On my card today, I thought a simple twine bow would do the trick!
Here is my card creation:
A close up of the simple, but perfect twine bow using Berry Red:

Give me a T, give me a R, give me a ENDY....

What do you have? TRENDY, TRENDY, TRENDY TWINE!!!!! (insert cartwheels & flips here)

Hi Everyone! Candi here to share a fun shaped card with you today, featuring the lovely Berry Trendy Twine (which just happens to be on sale, hint hint).

One of our favorite things to do over at Trendy Twine is to show you fun & creative uses of twine, not only can it add the perfect simple touch with a few strands or a bow, but you can also use it as a main component in your creations!

I decided to make an encouragement card to send a friend who is considering going back to school. Since I'm going to be mailing this I opted to make my pom poms a little less full so they will still fit into an envelope easily. Feel free to visit my blog if you'd like some details.

Remember to enter the Trendy Twine Challenge for this month, you could win the extreme mini pack (which is 10 regular colors of Trendy Twine and 20 yds of Berry Trendy Twine!!!)

Thanks for looking!

Paper Pinwheels

Hi, it’s Izzy Anderson here with the Trendy Twine design team. I have a fun and easy summer project: pinwheels and paper flowers.

We’re using Berry Red Twine this month, which is a great versatile color to use all year long. To me, pinwheels just scream summer fun and they are really easy to make. To make a pinwheel, all you need is a square of double-sided patterned paper, your favorite twine (Trendy, of course!), glue and some sort of stick or dowel. You can find full project instructions and additional photos on my blog at Write Snap Scrap.

I paired the pinwheel with several flowers made from paper and chipboard for a fun and festive summer centerpiece. I used Berry Red twine in the pinwheel center and for the button bow and I used Twisted Lime for the veins of the leaves.

We’d love to see what you’re making with Trendy Twine. Just jump right into our July challenge here. It’s easy to enter and fun to win! You can find all the details on the Trendy Twine blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Trendy Twine Shoe Card

Crafty Coffee Weather!

Hey Crafty Friends!

The weather here in Vegas has been crazy! It went from sunny and 116 degrees to cloudy, stormy skies and 86 degrees! So since I work better under pressure of course I waited until this week to get my Berry Red Trendy Twine project done. I was so inspired by our "cold" snap I had to create a cute little card to prove my undying love for a cup of hot COFFEE!

I do a lot of party projects and other types of crafting but sometimes I just like making a simple card. This one made me smile when it was done. I hope you like it too! I will be back on Monday August 6th with a new creation for you so please come back and visit often.

Don't forget, you have until July 28th to participate in the July Challenge featuring Berry Twine!

Seeing red - it's confession time!

Okay, let me start with my first confession - I am seeing red right now!!  But it's not what you might think - there is not an ounce of anger brewing over here. The truth is, I have been up to my eyeballs in Berry Red twine, and I couldn't be happier.  After all, (and here comes confession #2) - I am addicted to ladybugs, and this particular twine had me thinking about all sorts of ways to get "insect crafty" for my latest project!  What better reason to smile!  

With the help of my trusty tweezers, some liquid adhesive, the beautiful Berry Red twine, I experimented with a few ideas. I am happy to announce that the final result are in:

Created simply by spiraling the twine around wing shapes that I hand cut, the twine really added a fun tecture to these emebellishment!  And the best part was that by using the twine cmbined with a liquid adhesive, I was actually able to mold the wings so that the bugs are acutally domes as well. 

So, if you are a fan of ladybugs, get your hands on some of this great twine (it's even on sale right now) and get crafty!  Use it for the monthly challenge or for any crafty project, and let us see your crafty creativity!

To see more details on this project (including a surprise or two with this layout), feel free to stop by my blog!  Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great week!

Happy 4th of July!

Hi everyone!  My name is Helen and I am so happy to be posting today as part of the new Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine Design Team!!  We are spotlighting the Berry Trendy Twine this month.  So I decided to make one last 4th of July card to show you today.  You can use the same design for something other than 4th of July though.

I used my Berry Twine and carefully glued it around the heart in I *heart* USA.  I used the Stars Cuttlebug folder for the top layer, then I wrapped it the twine several times around that.  I think it turned out pretty cute!  You can get the rest of the supplies used for this card at my blog.

This card also fits the challenge that we have going on this month--red, white and blue and coordinating twine :)  You can see the details for the challenge on this POST.  Make sure to take time to play along!

Have a great day and safe 4th of July!!

Trendy Twine Monday Featuring Berry Twine

July is such an exciting month.  The new Design Team starts this month and I'm so excited to work with them.  It will be such a fun term.  We will have two group posting days since we have expanded a bit.  So the first consectutive Monday and Tuesday of each month will be set aside for the group posts.

Also let me take a moment to say that I'm really going to miss Stacey and Kim not being on the team.  Stacey is so sweet, super talented, and very organized.  Her projects were up weeks before they were due.  Isn't that just awesome?  I love that Stacey does all kinds of projects, not just cards, and quite a few of them involved chocolate.... my favorite.    Kim is my go-to girl for everything.  She was my DT coordinator and took care of all the bloggy stuff.  Plus she is so amazingly creative.  And the best part is, she likes to send me cards and gifts... a lot had chocolate.  I love happy mail.  Isn't happy mail so fun?  Kim has become a good friend along the way, too.  I'm grateful to both ladies for being on the design team and I wish you all the best.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Kim, please feel free to send chocolate whenever ;)

This month we are featuring Berry Trendy Twine (red and white); for you SU fans, it looks awesome with Real Red.  Let's move on to see what the Design Team has for us:
