Hello There!

Hi everyone!  It's the last day of May and I am so happy about that.  It has been a really busy month and I am really hoping things slow down a bit now and I can craft a lot more! Did you see the sneak peak of the new twine color that was posted on Facebook yesterday?  If not, visit the Trendy Twine Facebook page to take a peek :)

So the challenge is over this month, but I can still show you Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine, one of the awesome twines we have been showcasing this month.  Be sure to head over to the STORE to purchase your favorites :)

This is a small treat box I made for you today.  

I also used The Alley Way Stamps Petal Pushers stamp set on this cute little box.  The box and lid is 6 inches high cut from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge.  I carefully glued the twine around the lid and finished it off with some Frosted Lace Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure to head back next week to see what fun twine colors we are showcasing.

Wish You Were Here

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 May the DT has been featuring the gorgeous 
Tickled with Teal and Twisted Teal Trendy Twine

So for my card today I get to post a project using one of these colors, plus Kraft (which follows our challenge that just recently ended for this month) and some of the fun The Alley Way Stamps. 
Doesn't this make you want to hit the beach??? 
Following with my love for CAS designs, I used Kraft card stock as my base, designer paper from Echo Park for my mat and surf boards and Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine
Here is the close-up of my twine surf boards... They are a sneak for the new June release from TAWS ~ Tropical Hideaway stamp set. I added the twine to the center of the boards and then thought they needed a bit more embellishing.
 The cords are what came out of that :)

So what do you think???
As always there are additional details up on my blog HERE. I would love if you popped over to say
"Hi" there as well!
Don't forget to hop over to the NEW store HERE and pick up the colors of the month! They are only on sale for a few more days.

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

Go Fly a Kite!

Hi everyone,

It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios, and I am here today to share with a little layout I created with the awesome Tickled with Teal twine!  This colour is a fabulous combination of 2 colours of teal and white.  Since teal is everywhere in paper patterns right now, it's a perfect staple for your crafty stash!

This was a layout I created to celebrate an afternoon adventure I had with my family - we went out to fly a kite!  I thought that the twine would make great tails for the kite embellishments and it was as easy as tying on small strands onto a longer one and then tacking in place with a bit of Glossy Accents.

I also used the twine to help me with one of my favourite techniques - hidden photos!

When you untie the bow, the flap opens to reveal a couple of extra photos of our adventure!  Twine is the perfect way to keep these types of elements in place, and so easy to tie back up when you are ready to put the layout away.  

You still have time to pick up the great teal colours that we have here at Trendy Twine!  You don't want to miss out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Guest Designer Amy McCabe

Hi Everyone - Today is my last post as guest designer for the month of May. I really enjoyed creating projects using Trendy Twine's wonderful twine. I love to create shadow boxes (lots of examples on my blog). It all started about 3 years ago when I made one for my coworker. It has spread from there and I've probably made close to a 100 shadow boxes for family and friends. They really do make a perfect gift for a shower.

Here is one I created using Trendy Twine!

Pick up a frame at Joanns or Michaels. (I get the white ones from Joanns) I start out by taking a peek at the baby registry online - that will give you a good idea of what the color scheme and theme is. Then start cutting your elements. 

Once you have everything cut add foam tape or pieces of foam core under the elements to give it dimension. Afterall it is a shadowbox so make some shadows. I added Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine to my project which was the perfect accent.

You can either hang this in the baby's room or purchase a holder at Joanns to display in the room.

I really enjoyed my time as the May guest designer here at Trendy Twine. Thanks to Lesley and her awesome DT for having me for the month of May! See you around. ~Amy

Wet Your Whiskers

Hello all from the Happy Card Encouragement Factory. I have a little inspiration for your Father's Day gifts today with a bit of Twisted Teal and The Alley Way Stamps.

Can you guess what I want my hubby to do with his 'stache? LOL It may seem like a kind of lame gift, but we go through a lot of shaving cream and razors around my house with three guys. I'm pretty sure one of the boys will take it from their dad before the day is over.

On another note, take a look at the May Specials going on right now. Get the mini set of three colors for $5.50 or pick up a full spool or two of Tickled with Teal or Twisted Teal for $7.95. Then get to crafting! ;)
