11/29/12 Thanks Card with Orange Truffle Accents

Anita here from Happy Paper Craft Happenings Blog.  I created this thank you card with the gorgeous Orange Truffle Trendy Twine which is on sale this month and you can buy here.  A lot of wonderful people have been helping me out since I had my knee replaced and this is a thank you card that I made for the lady who has been coordinating the yummy meals which have been delivered to my home.  I love chocolate with anything and the pop of orange in this twine is just fabulous.
Be sure to check out this month's challenge, there is a tiny bit more time to play along.  

Be well and until next time. Hugs,

Go wild!!!

This month, the Trendy Twine gals have been working with the Orange Truffle twine.  It's a great combination of orange and brown that makes me think of all things warm, cozy and cuddly.  And what's cozier and cuddlier than a lion, right?
This little guy was simply created by paper piecing a stamped image over some of the Orange Truffle twine. 
With my favourite triple strand tie to add a bit of texture, I think this fun card would bring smiles to any recipient!

If you would like more details about this card, hop on over to ScrappyCanuck Studios share all my secrets with you (well, crafty ones anyway)!

And don't forget to pop on over to the monthly contest page - you still have a few days to get in on the fun and have the chance to win a store credit!

Thanks for Being My Friend

Hey all, Becki here from The Happy Card Encouragement Factory with my November project.  With thoughts of thankfulness on my mind I made my card.  I have a friend who recently had a baby. Normally this means hanging out at her house hugging and squeezing on that little cutie, but I have been soooo busy I have only seen him one time for about 10 minutes. Add to that I was sick and didn't want to hold him.  That really stinks. I wanted a card I could send just to her to let her know that I am thankful for her. That she still wants to be my friend even when I am a stinky one.

She loves all the twine I have so I put a cute little Orange Truffle bow on there. You can get the details on my blog, if you are so inclined. Have a great day and happy crafting!

Guest Designer Michelle

Hi Everyone !! It's Michelle from Scrappin With My Bug!
Happy to be asked to guest design ~
I wanted to create something other than just tying a bow on something!! lol
I used a metal ring and some terrifically tacky tape and wrapped it with Twisted Lime Trendy Twine.
Then used a holly punch and rhinestones to create the wreath.
The door card is cut from the Silhouette store with velum behind the door to give the yellow a soft look

After the person receives this card they can remove the wreath and its a necklace !!

Here's close up of the door, I cut 2 small holes in the door to thread the necklace through
and a button for the door knob

Here's the inside: on the left I created a pocket to put the extra rope from the necklace in
on the right: I used a Jaded Blossom sentiment from Christmas Wishes and a holly punch.

Thanks so much for stopping by, please visit me at
We are so thrilled to have Michelle as our guest today. 
Thank you for spending some time with us.
Please stop by her blog to leave her some love.
Don't forget the Black Friday Sale starts today. 
Head over to our facebook page for some coupon codes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Trendy Gals and Guys out there!
It's Yvonne and today I wanted to bring to you an oldie and a goodie... 

First the Goodie, I made this treat bag for my Thanksgiving table. A little something the kids can much on once Dinner is over. I used Trendy Twines Orange Truffle Twine that is on sale in the shop here, Then added a Pilgrim bird on an Action Wobble and a Thank you sentiment from My Creative Time. To see a video of the bird in action click here to visit my Blog.

Now for the Oldie, This is a favorite card of mine that I made last year. 
A fun Thanksgiving Day card that is sure to bring a smile to whoever receives it.

If you're crafting today you should enter the challenge we have going on, here.

Thanksgiving Frame

Hi everyone!  Helen here from HTB Creations today.  I hope you are enjoying all the fall projects this month!  We are showcasing the fabulous Orange Truffle Trendy Twine which is on sale right now.

Today, I decorated a frame I had laying around.  I had been very interested in the idea of making it like a white board as I've seen on Pinterest.  I don't have the best handwriting on this one, but it wipes off great and I might make a thanks board on Thursday.  That way, everyone can write something they are thankful for!

I had thought (briefly) about covering the entire front with twine, but did not want to use up my whole spool! A little at a time, I used a strip of glue and tried to make a straight line around the frame.  It turned out pretty good I think.

There's still plenty of time to join our challenge this month.  Just click here to see the guidelines and to link up your own project. We really do love to see the fun ways everyone uses Trendy Twine!  And make sure to check out the store on Friday.  There may be some fun sales for you  to take advantage of :)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

All Warm and Cozy!

Hi there Trendy Twine fans! Jessica here from Crafty Rocket Science. I am super excited to be guest designing for you today! I'm sure as many of you can guess I LOVE Trendy Twine and I use it on almost all my paper crafting projects, but when I found out I was going to be guest designing I just knew I had to do something a little outside the box. So without further ado a project with ZERO paper, gasp, I know that's a little crazy!


In case you can't tell I LOVE LOVE LOVE coffee and I just knew
I NEEDED a coffee cozy made out of my favorite crafting embellishment :)

I used lots and lots of Stormy and a little In the Navy to decorate.

Don't forget to join in the monthly challenge and
if you don't have any Trendy Twine yet
 (well shame on you!) go pick some up right now!

Happy crafting!

Picking Pumpkins!

Hi there!
Hope everyone is having a fantastic November. I'm loving the fall weather and all the goodies that it brings, especially pumpkins.
Trendy Twine is featuring the dreamy Orange Truffle this month. Make sure you purchase a spool for your self, it is to die for.

I made a layout about picking pumpkins. Make sure you drop by my blog to see more pics of it. I hope you enjoy it. Sorry the color isn't the best...I waited too late in the day to take the pic, I either had to much sun and had shadows or not enough light and had shadows. UGH!!

Check back daily this month to be inspired by our fabulous design team and our individual posts.
