Guest Designer Susie

Today we have Susie with Susie Craft Happy guesting for us today. 
I "met" her earlier this year when I was out visiting blogs and
I  just loved her crafty work.  So, the day has finally arrived to
have her here on the blog.  Yay!!
Isn't her card beautiful?  Love the anchor and
the way she used the Kraft Trendy Twine on it.

Stop by  Susie's blog to see the inside of the card. 
The sentiment is darling and goes so well the theme of the card. 
Take a  moment to thank her for guesting for us.
This month was such a fun month on the blog.
I loved all of the beach themes
and Kraft was the perfect twine for it.
 I want to thank the Design Team and all of our Guest Designers
for doing such an amazing job with their projects.
Today is the last day to link up or the challenge
And Kraft twine is still on sale through tonight,
so you still have a little bit of time to snag it if you haven't already.
Have a great Friday!

Life's a Beach

Hey everyone, Becki here from The Happy Card Encouragement Factory (yes, I know that's a mouthful!) to bring you my Design Team project for the month of August.  The theme for the challenge is beach so I thought I would continue on, and get a few more summery cards out there.  My inspiration came from my friend Brigit.  I just adored her card, and couldn't help making one just, well almost, like it.  Does this make you want to stick your toes in the sand or what!

Look at that awesome Trendy Twine in Krazy for Kraft.  One of my personal faves!  If you want to know the paper stack or SVGs I used, head over to my blog for all the details.  Happy crafting!

Krazy for Kraft!

Hello and welcome to this wonderful Wednesday and my Krazy for Kraft post!
It's Margaret from AuntMargaretDesigns here today and I'm thrilled to show you what I've been up to this month working with the beautiful, mellow Krazy for Kraft twine. Make sure you drop by my blog to see what I started with when working on this project.
Here's the finished product and it is hanging in my bathroom looking just beyond gorgeous!
I wove the Krazy for Kraft around the spindles that were built into this shelf. Then I added those cute butterflies. 
Thanks for checking out my DT project for the month. Make sure you take advantage of the sale going on for Krazy for Kraft. While you are shopping around, why not join in in the monthly challenge? It's always a fun time.

I scream for...


Hi everyone, it's Karen!  I am excited to be sharing an extra project with you this month!

Now I am not sure why the beach makes me think of ice cream, but this Krazy for Kraft twine makes the perfect chocolate swirl don't you think???!!!  I had so much fun this month playing with a few ideas for using Trendy Twine to create ice cream embellishments, and although some were more successful than others, there is no doubt that the texture of twine is perfect!  It's as easy as creating a cone shape (you can even use a stamp), and then wrapping and adhering the twine with a bit of glue!  What a fun accent for cards, layouts or even altered objects!

If you are interested in seeing a different version, come on over to my blog to see what else I have up my sleeve!

In the meantime, go and pick up some Krazy For Kraft twine!  You will be able to use this colour on so many different projects, and since it's on sale, you can't go wrong!

Gift Card Bookmark

Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly. Today I have a fun little duel gift featuring Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine. This cute gift card holder also doubles as a bookmark!

On the front I stamped "Enjoy, it's your day" from the My Thoughts Exactly Big Thoughts stamp set.

To create the adorable flower I looped some yummy Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine.

It slides open to reveal a gift card!

And once you remove the gift card it can be used as a bookmark!!

Isn't that a fun little addition to a gift card?

Summer Visitors

Hey Crafty Friends-

It's Kerri here with another great Trendy Twine project. I'm sticking with the beach theme we've had going this month and decided to do a little something for my house guests popping by on their summer vacation. Why not make them feel like they are staying in fancy hotel and provide them a little luxury. This way they don't have to use my kids' Hello Kitty soap ha ha.

I created a beach inspired hang tag to dress up a bottle of shower gel/bubble bath and attached it using this months featured color Krazy for Kraft. I also rolled up a washcloth and tied a double bow around it for fun! Cute idea huh? Love is in the details and any summer guest would love to see this waiting for them on the bathroom counter.

For more details on how I made the tag you can visit my blog at  I will see you back here on Monday September 3rd with more twine goodness!

Don't forget to join the August challenge HERE Krazy for Kraft is a great color to create with!

Beach Fashion - Trendy Twine style!

Hi everyone!  Believe it or not, I am currently trying to beat the heat up here in Canada, so I thought I would have some fun using my Krazy for Kraft twine for a bit of beach fashion fun!  Now, I hope you are not expecting a string (twine?) bikini, because heaven knows you won't catch me in one of those, but I do have a couple of altered hats that I wanted to share with you all today! 
This first one simply uses a pompom with a bit of black embroidery floss mixed in for a dimensional and textural feature on the kraft coloured flower. 

And this second one uses a few knots and some twisted strands to take this beach hat from a bit drab to Trendy Twine fab (okay, that was really bad fashion cliche... I better stick to crafting)!  :) 

If you are interested in seeing some closeups of the embellishments, come on over to my blog for the insider's scoop!  And then, get "krafty" with some of that fun and versatile Krazy for Kraft twine!  There's still plenty of time to enter this month's challenge - twine bikini's included!!

Put the Lime in the Coconut...

"Put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up, put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up..."
Oh sorry, I've had that song stuck in my head for a week now! Candi with you again from Chaos-n-Crafts to share another fun project featuring Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine (and a few others). We're having a whole month of beach themed yumminess this month so I had to make another tropical project, this time a cute little gift box to go with the hula card I made earlier in the month.

I actually used 4 different colors of Trendy Twine on my project. My tree is wrapped with Krazy for Kraft (which is on sale this month), my banner is hanging on Twisted Lime, my coconuts are made from chocolate truffle which is also wrapped around the lid, and lastly I have 2 rows of Blue Berry on my box base.

Before you come on over to my blog to see more photos and details on my project, have you entered our challenge yet? Be sure to link up your project HERE!

As always, thank you for looking & have a wonderful day!

Friends Fur-ever

Hello everyone!  Helen here from HTB Creations.  We are featuring Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine this month and I made a cute doggy card to show you today.

I was at a crop with some friends and she was playing with some Trendy Twine leftovers.  She had this great idea to make a dog pull toy.  She helped me figure out how to 'put' it in his mouth too :)  I also made some twine 'buttons' as accents for the card.

To make the buttons, you need a 3d glue dot.  You push the end of the twine down in the middle of the dot and start winding around to the outside--super easy!

You can visit my blog to see more details!  Don't forget to play along this month to win some fabulous Trendy Twine at this LINK.  Just be sure to follow all the guidelines when you enter.  Krazy for Kraft Twine is on sale this month--just visit Annie's Paper Boutique to purchase.

Have a great day!

Wish You Were Here

Hi everyone. It’s Izzy Anderson here today and I’m so excited to help kick off a new month of projects with Krazy for Kraft, our featured Trendy Twine this month. Kraft is such a terrific, versatile color. It’s like khaki pants: it goes with everything!

For my project, I made a summer card that features a fringe mat made with twine and a lonely pair of flip flops. Now, don't you just want to run over and drop your flip flops next to his and relax at the beach?

The mat fringe was super easy to do. I have a tutorial on my blog, as well as a girl version with blingy flip flops and a Berry twine fringe mat. I got the idea from this pin on Pinterest.

We'd love to have you join in our monthly challenge. You can find all the details on the Design Team group post on Monday.  If you have your eye on Krazy for Kraft, you can find it here.
