No Tricks, Just TREATS!

Hello my crafty friends, it's Yvonne from OneCreativeMomma and I'm here to share with you some Halloween treats I've been working on. Halloween is upon us and when you have 3 kids in school it means this momma is crazy busy making all kinds of goodies for the teachers and classmates. This year I have about 70 classmate treats to make and 10 teacher gifts, I'm tired already and I've just begun.

These Bubblegum treat boxes filled with chocolate are perfect for my childrens' teachers, I love how the Orange Licorice twine looks like spider legs.

I think the teachers would also like these ghostly candy corn treats. I used Midnight twine on these sour cream container shaped treats.

My girls classmates will be getting lollipops in these adorable witches hats all tied up with more Orange Licorice twine.

And my son's preschool friends will love these spooky straws topped off with a funny faced monster. I used a special release twine called Grape Limeade for this project. It matches the monster perfectly!

To find out more about the supplies I used to make these fun Halloween treats please visit my blog.

Don't forget today is the last day to enter our monthly challenge.  
It's always super fun and you can win yummy twine!

Aren't you crafty!

Hi everyone!  There is snow on the ground up here in Calgary, and you know what that means...Halloween! ;)  I know for many of you, that sentiment may sound strange, but up here the first major snowfall is usually around Halloween - just in time for costumes that get to get covered up by snowsuits! :) 

This month, we are celebrating Halloween here at Trendy Twine with the fun Orange Licorice twine. There have been so many great project ideas from the design team and guest designers, that I thought I would celebrate their craftiness with a little card:
My little spider friend was obviously inspired by all of them too - perhaps I should name her Charlotte! 
If you would like the details, come stop by Scrappy Canuck Studios.  And don't forget to check out all the amazing projects that were entered into this month's challenge!  You still have a day to enter and join in on the fun!
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
- Karen

Here's Your Sign

A very spooky Halloween sign to be exact!  Hi, Becki from The Happy Card Encouragement Factory here to bring you scary uses of twine for this heart-pounding holiday.  OK, my ghosts aren't that scary but I do think it was a genius use of the Orange Licorice twine, if I do say so myself.  LOL

It's hard to get a glimpse of the glitter pen I used on the inside of the lettering from my camera.  So if you are wondering what that weird looking stuff is, blame my camera for not picking up the cool iridescence of the pen.  Much shinier in person.  LOL  Want to know the supply list?  Check out my blog for details.  Thanks for stopping by Trendy Twine.  Have a great day and happy crafting!

Trick or Treat Layout

Hello Trendy Twiners, I am back for another design day this month and I have a Trick or Treat layout featuring Orange Licorice Trendy Twine. The Halloween scene on my layout showcases these little silhouettes who appear to be having a blast on Halloween Night.  The entire layout was accented with several different colors of Trendy Twine.
My twine spider was created by outlining the center with Orange Licorice twine, Midnight twine for the legs and Black Licorice for the web path.  I also incorporated a Lime Licorice bow into the title.
For more details on my project, please stop by my blog.  To take a closer peek at the twine colors, feel free to check out the store and don't forget there is still time to join our monthly challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!  Sukie

Trendy Guest: Thienly with Halloween Cupcakes.

Hello everyone!
I am SUPER EXCITED to be a guest blogger here today!!

It's Thienly here from mod paperie
and I made a project that I think is SO CUTE, and hope to inspire you today!

I love twine, especially Trendy Twine! 
They come out with the coolest color blends that NO OTHER companies make! 
It's so fun to be able to match your projects exactly with their perfect color combo!

Anyway, for my project - since we're featuring Orange Licorice twine this month 
AND running a Treats Packaging challenge
I couldn't resist but to make some Halloween cupcakes.  

No, I didn't go into my kitchen and make them... 
I'm not a good baker, 
and would rather keep those baking pictures to myself. 

 I made them with paper using the most adorable 3D cupcake file from SVG Cuts, 
and decided to put a little 'twist' to it.  
I covered them with burlap 
(oooh, yes, I LOVE burlap, and it's hard to NOT use them in my projects these days...) 
and used twine to make sprinkles and swirls... 
and of course, I had to add some orange metallic sprinkles and eyeball sprinkle ones, too... 
after all, it's Halloween!  
Then, I made a custom box from this file to package these yummy treats!







I hope that you liked my project... 
 and if you're interested in getting more info about making this project
just to say 'hi!' (just because comments are the best!)
 - please come visit my blog! :)

Thank you so much Lesley for having me here today!
It's always so fun to be invited as a guest!

Don't forget about the monthly challenge!

That's it!
Have a super TRENDY day!

Halloween Party Favors

Hey everyone!
Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly :) Today I have some adorable little Halloween party favors to share with you!

To make these I used the cauldron from the SVG Cuts Party On Elm Street SVG set. I made the cauldron mini and then added other elements from the set to turn each one into a pumpkin, bat, or spider. Finally I added some yummy Halloween Trendy Twine (Orange Licorice, Lime Licorice, and Grape Licorice) to make them perfect!

Don't forget to check out this month's challenge!

Have a wonderful day!!

Trendy 'n' Trick Bags

Hello, Trendy Twiners! Hope you are having a great day! (Sorry for the late post today!)

I decided to make these treat bags for my kids' classmates. And when you are making around 40 of them, what is better than quick'n'easy!

I used this month's spotlight color - Orange Licorice- as the closure of the bags.  I love how bright the orange pops against the black!

Happy Halloween Card

Hello everyone!  This is Helen from HTB Creations.  Today, I have a card for you.  It's a quick and easy one that you can make if you are short on time.  I do love when things are easy sometimes :)

I used the fabulous Orange Licorice Trendy Twine which we are showcasing this month.   The paper and stamps are all from the Close to My Heart Spellbound kit.

The bow I added is my new favorite kind.  It takes me a bit to tie though since I've only made a few :)

I truly hope that you all take the time to play along with our challenge this month.  We really do love to visit your blogs and see what you create!!  And you can win a fun prize!  Click the linked challenge word above to see the details and to enter your own creation.

Halloween Treat!

Good morning my creative friends! Emma here w/My Creative Time! I am so excited to be the guest designer here today. Well, let's get right to it! For my super cute EASY treat today, I just used my "Bubblegum Treat Box Die", filled it w/some little pops from "See's Candies", then closed up each end using the "Orangesicle" color twine. I love it w/the 2 shades of orange w/the white, I thought it went PERFECT w/my Teresa Collins "Haunted Hallows" Halloween paper!

Here is another view of it, I just LOVE how this twine looks on this treat box! You can find MORE fun twine like this HERE!

Supplies I used:
~ Teresa Collins "Haunted Hallows" 6x6 pad
~ Teresa Collins "Haunted Hallows Brads"

I just want to say a HUGE "THANK YOU" to Miss Lesley for always being so sweet & for inviting me here to be a guest today!  Have a FABULOUS weekend!
