Spring Treat

Hi everyone!  It's Karen from SCRaPPY CaNuCK STuDioS!

When Lesley said she was coming out with a pink, green and white twine combination, I squealed!  Yup, I did (and you need to understand that I am not really the squealing type).  But with two little gals at home, I honestly couldn't have thought of a more perfect twine for everything, spring, sweet and girly! Watermelon Taffy did not disappoint.

In this layout, I used the twine to embellish the banner and added some long bows for a bit of a focal point at each end.  I also lined the edge of a pullout tab (but you'll have to pop on over to my blog to see what is hidden in that little pocket (and to get some fun closeups of the twine too). 
So, head on over to the store to pick up some of this fantastic twine!  And visit us again soon because it is almost time for our new challenge and fun February projects!

Guest Designer Candace {Third Post}

Happy Friday!! Candace here from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses

 I am sad that today is my very last day as a guest designer here at Trendy Twine!! I love all the ladies on the DT, as well as the owner Lesley, and am so grateful for the chance to join them this month! 

Since my last two projects were layouts, I wanted to come up with a card. I am so happy this card turned out exactly how I had pictured it in my mind! Super duper rare for me! 

I cut out three hearts all of the same size and glued them together to make a more sturdy heart that I could easily wrap my twine around. I used the Berry Twine, which seems to get used a LOT in my craft room! 

The man, woman and heart shapes were all from the Silhouette store and my sentiment is from a Pink By Design stamp set. I used digital paper from Sassy Designs to create my chevron background. 

I'm so glad to have had the chance to share my projects with you this month! Thanks for stopping by, and remember, you still have time to link up your project for this month's challenge! :)

Coffee Cup Trendy Tags

Getting warm must have been on my mind when making these tags. The temps have really dropped here in Ohio and a nice hot cup of coffee really does the trick. Even when they have a cute little snowflake attached.  It definitely is my sweet treat. I love my coffee with a little bit of Italian Sweet Cream. Mmmmm, it's the best.

Anyway, I made these tags with my new favorite twine, Watermelon Taffy.  If you don't have any, you must get some NOW! It looks even better in person. Love, love this color. It works well for winter, summer, and spring projects. So very versatile.

Thanks for stopping by the Trendy Twine today. Hope you enjoyed my project and come back to see what the rest of the Design Team have up their sleeves to finish off the week.

Guest Designer Candace {Second Post}

Hi crafty friends!! Candace from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses here again! This week I have a project that fits this month's challenge theme: Show Us Your Mittens

For all the details of the challenge click HERE

I LOVE the Watermelon Taffy twine and it matched perfectly with some cute mitten paper I had on hand. 

I used an adorable bear cutting file from Kadoodle Bug Designs and added a Peachy Keen face. With some ZipDry glue on the back of my die cut to hold the end of the twine, I wrapped my twine around the bear's hat. My snowflakes are cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I created the title myself in Silhouette Studio. 

Here is a closer peek at the twine on my cute little bear....

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure you link up your projects using twine, mittens, snowflakes, buttons and PINK right HERE!! There will be a $10 store coupon up for grabs, as well as a $2 coupon for ALL qualifying entries!! How sweet is that?!

Trendy Twine Suncatcher

Hello, it's Becki from The Happy Card Encouragement Factory back with a slightly different twist on twine. I made a set of mitten suncatchers with my new favorite - Watermelon Taffy! Cool, huh?

I am sorry about the pictures. I wanted to take them hanging in the kitchen window, but sadly, no sun for us Ohioans for a few weeks. So I had to hang them on my lightbox with a second light shining from behind the drop cloth. I know they don't show these mittens in their best light, but I really wanted to show everyone how cool they came out. Totally different!

If you would like to know how I made them, I have a tutorial up on my blog. Check it out and thanks for stopping by!

Cute calendar using Watermelon Taffy

Good morning Trendy Twiners!

It's Dawn here from Dawn's Designs that Delight!

I'm excited to be here today!  This is my very first individual post as a member of the fabulous Trendy Twine team!

If you haven't heard .. this month's featured twine is Watermelon Taffy.

Isn't it just a fantastic combination?  

This month I've created a pocket calendar.  As I was putting it together TONS (and yes, I do mean TONS) of ideas came to mind as to what I could put in this cute thing.  I could organize my bills, my receipts, my many to do lists, kids projects .. and the list goes on and on and on!

You can see all the yummy details as well as more photos of this project if you stop by my blog HERE.

Last but not least, don't forget to stop by and check out the challenge going on right now.  We'd love to see your project!

Until next month ....

Guest Designer Candace

Hi Trendy Twiners!! Candace from Scrappin' 2 Little Princesses here. I am SO excited to be a Trendy Twine guest designer for the month of January! I made my very first Trendy Twine purchase a while back and it was immediate love! I can't wait to share a few projects with you! 

For the layout I am sharing today, I used the Berry Red twine

The combination of the Berry Red twine and white polka dot paper from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons screams Minnie Mouse to me! :) 

I used a fine line applicator bottle with some craft glue to outline the hearts, then added my twine. Using glue in the fine line applicator bottle makes it so clean and easy to adhere and place the twine exactly where I wanted it. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I am having a great time laying with my twine and can't wait to share my next project with you all!!

Trendy Barrette using Watermelon Taffy

Hello, Trendy Twiners! It's Jessi here from Kissin' Krafts! I am excited to share this fun project with you today!

As you probably know, Watermelon Taffy Twine is the spotlight twine of the month! It is an awesome color combo that (to me) shouts 'girly'. So with that in mind, I wanted to create a project for a little girl.

I created this barrette with some Watermelon Taffy Twine, a punch, ribbon and buttons.

I was hoping to get a picture of it in use, but my 3 year old daughter was not agreeing with the idea! So Strawberry Shortcake to the rescue :)
Please stop by my blog to get more details about how I created this project!
Have you seen this month's Trendy Twine Challenge? There is a great prize at stake! Check out the details HERE!
Have a great day!

So excited to share my project with you all....

This month we are showcasing the gorgeous

So time to see my project....
Walking through the store the other day I found this adorable fleece scarf that had the same colors as this month's Twine so I thought...why not wrap it up and tie an adorable tag around it for a gift...
Seeing that I have boys...anything cute and pink and cute...(yeah I said that twice..LOL) I eat up...and this is something I think turned out adorable..
Here is a close-up of the tag and all the fun Watermelon Taffy Twine that was added.... on the buttons, as a scarf on my penguin and to help tie my tag onto my scarf.
