Guest Designer Trixie {Third Post}

Good Morning!

Hi Everyone! It's Trixie here from Pink Glitter Studio.

Today I have a yummy card to share with you. 

But first I'd like to thank Lesley for 
having me as a Guest Designer for Trendy Twine this month. 
I've had so much fun using your FABULOUS twine.
I got my inspiration for this card from Pinterest.  
It just makes me think of summer and I'm so ready for it to be here!! :) 

For my lollipop I used Grape Fizz, Blue Berry, Tickled Pink, Orangesicle, 

I put the lollipop on a white background so you could see the AMAZING color of the twine.  
I used the Jaded Blossom's Fancy Topper Die for this.  

I also used some Lemonade Rumple Ribbon from LoveBug Creations.

Here is a close up of the lollipop!

Inside of card..

Thank you so much for checking out my card today!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!!

Best Wishes and String Art Tutorial!

Hey Everyone!

Jamie here to share a new project featuring Twisted Lime with you!
Plus I've got a mini string art tutorial.

I made this colorful Best Wishes card.

Here's a close up of the finished string art with Twisted Lime.

Onto the tutorial....

Hopefully my pictures make sense to everyone, if not you can always contact me through my blog HERE.

I used the rhinestone feature on the Silhouette software to make my holes. I made the shape I want and then I do an internal offset a little smaller then the shape. After that I used the rhinestone feature to change the internal shape to size 10ss holes and for this circle I changed the spacing to 3.

1.  I put a line of my atg glue on the back to hold down the end of the twine. 

1.  I numbered the holes in the pics above so you can see where to start and where to go next. 
 But you can pick any hole to start and then pick another one somewhere across from it.
Depending on how far apart the holes are you choose will make the hole in the center bigger or smaller. 

3.  Then you just keep moving one hole over(counter clockwise) all the way around the shape until you have 2 strands into each hole.

If you run out of twine while working the shape, you can just start a new strand on the back. 

I hope you enjoyed my project, stop by my blog for complete details on my project HERE.

You can purchase some Twisted Lime on sale HERE.

Thanks for stopping!

Guest Designer Trixie {Second Post}

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

Trixie here from Pink Glitter Studio.

I'm so happy to be back again today with another card to share with you.

Today I made this Hello Kitty Bunny card. Isn't she sooo cute!!!!  
I feel in love with her when I saw her on Ruthie Nixon's Blog.

I kept the background of this card pretty simple so Hello Kitty would stand out. I did a little bit of embossing on the bottom part of the card.

I used one of my new FAVORITE colors, Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine for her bow, on the Easter Basket and for the Charm.  

Here she is close up. ;)
I put some bling on her bow and some Stickles on the Easter Eggs.

For the sentiment I used Jaded Blossom's Easter Candies and put it on one of the Charm Dies from the Candy Charms and Banner Dies.

I just love how the Charm Die looks. What a cute way to add a sentiment to your card or project!

Thank you so much for checking out my card today.  

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!

Lucky You

I'm finally back with a new project today for Trendy Twine. I am jumping over here from the Happy Card Encouragement Factory with a little taste of Twisted Lime. It's a simple Print N' Cut card to let your best buddy know how lucky they are to have you as a friend. hehehe I mean, you do make them awesome homemade cards, right?

As you can see, it's a pretty straight forward paper charm bracelet pun. I didn't add a sentiment to the front as I thought the middle charm was enough. The only thing is, I need your help with an inside sentiment. I was thinking "you're such a charm" or something like that, but I am not sure that is very good. Got anything? Leave me some suggestions in the comments below!

Don't forget you still have a little time to enter the March challenge. It ends Friday, March 22nd. The prize is a $10 store coupon for the best twine on the planet! Which, by the way, you can grab this month's spotlight color for just $7.95 for a 160 yard spool. What are you waiting for?!?

It's Always Nice to Wish The Best.......

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap and today is my day to share some twine goodness with you all.  For the entire month of March the DT is featuring the gorgeous 

Image of Twisted Lime Trendy Twine {Light Green & Dark Green Bakers Twine}
Isn't is such a GREAT twist of greens??? 

If you are a blog follower of mine, then you know I love to create CAS cards... and I am always on the lookout for different ways to use my twine.
So for my card today I went with just that... CAS design and let the twine be my burst of color...
Hope you like it!
 I used a beautiful border stamp and added some eyelets to the corners in line with the stamp pattern. Then I threaded my twine though the holes leaving some hanging over the egdes on purpose for a fun added look :)
I think this gives the twine the front and center spotlight and really shows off the beautiful colors and twist.
What do you think???

 Don't forget about this month's challenge~
~St. Patrick's Day with a clover, leprechaun, or both
~Monochromatic green (shades of green; no other colors)
~Trendy Twine
You still have time to enter and we would LOVE to see all those projects!!!!

As always there are additional details up on my blog. I would love if you popped over to say "Hi" there as well!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT week!!!

Beeeest Wishes

Good morning twine fans! It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios!  I am here today to share a fun and simple project with you using Twisted Lime Trendy Twine - one of my all time favourite twine colours! 

This time of year always make me think of green, and not just because of St. Patrick's Day, but also because I start to anticipate the wonderful bright green colour that starts to make it's way into my garden!  So I thought I would team up Twisted Lime with a couple of other springs favourites of mine - bumblebees and plants!

To make this little plant topper, I teamed simply created a flower shape around my scalloped circle by looping the twine in behind the punched shape and adhering in place.  I then added a bit of twine to the pot to tie the embellishments together, and I am all set to take this off to offer some "Beeeeest wishes"!
Don't forget that you still have time to join into this month's challenge - Going green!  And there are so many fun Trendy Twine green colours - there's bound to be one that you'll love as much as I love Twisted Lime...go check them out!
