Sting Like a Bee - Trendy Twine's Bumblebee Release

So glad you could join us today!  It is such an EXCITING day for us. 

First, we are announcing our two newest Trendy Gals. 

Say a big hello to Brigit and Candace.  I was stoked when they agreed to join the Design Team.  Both of these ladies are incredibly talented, so when you have some time, browse through their blogs.

Second, we are releasing color #49, Bumblebee Trendy Twine,
and having our Sting Like a Bee Hop to celebrate its release.

The Trendy Gals have created some amazing projects showcasing this brand new color.
Hop through to get some crafty inspiration.

For today, Bumblebee twine is $8; tomorrow it goes back to regular price.

Here is the lineup for the hop:
Trendy Twine {you are here}
Jessica {next stop}
There is some yummy blog candy if you follow this blog and
comment on every blog (including this one) in the hop.
You will be entered in a giveaway for the Jaded Blossom's Love Stings stamp set. 
Isn't it the cutest? 
Stop by their FB page and say thank you.
(You have until 11:59 pm central time, Friday, July 5th, to enter.)
Also for today only, if you place a $25 or more order (before taxes or shipping)
 you will get this cute envelope set with your purchase. 
Set includes ten envelopes and they will go perfectly with your twine :)

I am not much of a crafter, so I have a fabulous design team.  They show off the Trendy Twine and I just make it.  But this time I did create a few simple projects that anyone can do.  Most of the items can be found in the store.  Just click the link and it will take you right to it.

Tags & Bags:

The tag die is from Papertrey Ink. 
The cute sentiments are from Jaded Blossom's Love Stings set and the bee is from my stamp stash. 
I LOVE the one with the Jaded Blossom set, but is was too big for my tags.
I embossed the glassine bags with a honeycomb embossing folder. 

Bubble Gum Treat:

I love these boxes; they are the perfect size for all kinds of goodies. 
The bee stamp is from my stamp stash.

Buttons & Twine:

This is a little treat that I made for a crafty friend.
Buttons:  Stitched buttons.
Boxes:  Pillow boxes.
I used the cute "bee happy" sentiment from the Love Stings stamp set.
Thread cards are from my stash.

Your next stop is Jessica.
Happy hopping!
