A Little Argyle Lovin'

Good morning everyone! It's Karen from SCRaPPY CaNuCK STuDioS.

A few weeks ago, I was inspired by an argyle-themed wreath that I saw on Pinterest.  I figured that the only thing that could make it cuter was a little touch of twine.  So I grabbed my adorable Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine and got to work:

I used my TT to create the argyle pattern as well as to accent the center of the flowers.  A little yarn, a little felt and a little twine!  What can I say - it really is that easy!

Come on over to SCRaPPY CaNuCK STuDioS for all the details!  In the meantime, grab some twine int he store (Cherry Cupcake is still on sale until the end of the day but this wreath would look great in a variety of colors) and get crafty.  After all, anytime is a good time for argyle!

True Love

Hey everyone, Becki here from The Happy Card Encouragement Factory with some more love for the month of February. I know you have seen similar projects from the other team members recently but I swear I was already working on mine in January, just had to wait my turn to post. I, like Candi, love to work with wood. She is trying to convince me to buy a scroll saw and router. Now I just have to convince my husband I need one. Candi, you may have to give him a call. ^__^

I love the Cherry Cupcake twine, don't you? I like using it on more than just Valentine's Day. It's great for a whole host of other holidays too. Well, hope you liked my project today, it was super fun to make. Even though the February challenge is over, be on the lookout for next month's challenge. It's going to be super fun!

Guest Designer Brigit {Third Post}

Hello again Trendy Twiners, it's Brigit here from Brigit's Scraps one last time as this month's guest designer!  I just want to say I had such a wonderful time making these Trendy Twine projects for all of you; it was just so much fun!!

So for my last project I had spring in mind and I wanted to use the new Aqua Midnight, this color is absolutely beautiful, so I decided on this butterfly card and used the Pink Midnight and a touch of Limeade for his hair, three colors I love so much!

I thought the twine would look awesome against the black of the wings.  I really love how it came out, the twine is so gorgeous and it really pops!

The butterfly card is from an SVG Cuts kit, sentiment is a Unity Stamp and the face is one of the Peachy Keen face stamps.  What a fun and easy project to make!

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you all enjoyed my Trendy Twine projects this month!!

Today is the last day to enter the Monthly Challenge "Sweets For My Sweetie", so hurry up and enter!!

I Heart You

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!
It is my day to share some twine goodness with you all and even though Valentine's Day is over you can always make that someone special a cute card to show them that you are thinking of them!
And what better way to do that then with this months featured color~

Here is my CAS card....
For my card I used a cut that I purchased from the Silhouette Store and instead of using the original heart that was above the image, I used a Fiskars heart punch, one that was significantly larger than the original heart and covered it with some Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine. I really wanted that heart to stand out and be the focal point on the card. 
For one more burst of color I added a bow to the little girl's hair. 

Don't forget about this month's challenge~
You still have time to enter!! We would LOVE to see all those projects!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT week!!!

Guest Designer Brigit {Second Post}

Hi Trendy Twiners Brigit here again from Brigit's Scraps with my second guest designer project for the month of February. A yummy ice cream sundae birthday card Trendy Twine style! I used four different colors for this project, Valentine Cherry Cupcake, Lemon Tart, Chocolate Truffle and a touch of Orangesicle on the button.

I just love how the twine looks on this project, really added that old ice cream parlor feel from the good ole days!!

The sundae with cherries is an svg from one of the collections, I just added the chocolate syrup and whipped cream which is not part of the file. I covered each layer with the different colors of Trendy Twine, trimmed the excess and layered it with some pop dots. The digital paper and elements are from Echo Park's Sweet Day collection which are printed and cutout on my Silhouette Cameo.

Well I hope you enjoyed my project and don't forget to enter this months Trendy Twine Challenge "Sweets For My Sweetie"!

Guest Designer Brigit

Hello Trendy Twiners, it's Brigit here from Brigit's Scraps!!  It's such an honor to be Trendy Twine's Guest Designer for the month of February, I'm so excited!!  I just love Trendy Twine and use it all the time, the colors are gorgeous and it always adds that perfect touch to my projects.

For this month’s Trendy Twine challenge, "Sweets For My Sweetie" I made an ice cream cone treat box and matching card using the pretty Valentine Cherry Cupcake.

I just love how this twine looks with Echo Park's Love Story paper collection, it's so perfect together.  The ice cream cone box and xoxo are both from, I made the shaped card using two shadow layers from the xoxo and welded them.  The faux stitching was done in SSDE and then cutout on my Cameo.

I covered each top accent piece of the ice cream with twine and glued them to the ice cream base.  It really went together very well and I just love how it came out.

Inside is a bag full of chocolate kisses tied with a some more Valentine Cherry Cupcake, which is on sale until Feb 14th!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and make sure you check out all the awesome projects that the Trendy Twine Design Team has created, totally awesome!!

Trendy LOVE Home Decor

Hello, Trendy Twiners! It's Jessi here from Kissin' Krafts! I am excited to be sharing today's project with you! The project is made using this month's spotlight color, Cherry Cupcake!

Here it is (my first attempt to make 'canvas' art):

During one of my many visits to Pinterest, I came across an idea using embroidery thread on canvas. Click HERE to see the link that sparked the interest!

I bought some rope from Hobby Lobby, along with the canvas. And headed home to start the project. I soon found out that I did not have the right tools to complete the project as it was done in the link! So I had to modify my plans. I decided to wrap the rope with the Trendy Twine Cherry Cupcake twine.

I decided to complete each letter at a time and glued them one by one to the canvas.

I was surprised how quick this project went (once I figured it out)!

Don't you just love the pink and red color combo in the Cherry Cupcake? If you love to create with those colors, please join our Monthly Challenge! Check out the details HERE!

Have a great day!
