Happy New Year Trendy Friends!

Hello, Trendy Twine friends! Who is ready for the new year to get started? I know that I am! As usual, I have a list of things I would like to get done in 2014.

So here to starting off the New Year with a bang!

2014 Party Favors - Guest Designer: Susie Craft Happy

Hi Everyone and Happy Friday!!!  Susie Craft Happy here today as excited as I can be to be today's Guest Designer!!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday! With all the presents opened, family and friends still near, its time to celebrate the upcoming New Year!!!  Today I'm using a couple of the fabulous Trendy Twine Solid Twists.  I used the Totally Black and Totally White Trendy Twine to add a bow.
I thought a party favor idea would be great for your New Year's Eve celebration.  The possibilities are endless on what to put inside.  I added a little bling and glitzy glitter paper to dress them up a bit. 
You still have a time to join in on this month's challenge to incorporate twine in your gift wrapping!

A BIG thank you to Lesley and the amazingly talented Trendy Twine Design Team for having me here today!! If you love adding twine to your projects you will love the Solid Twists variety!!

Jingle All The Way

Hey Everyone!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Jamie here and this is my last post for the Trendy Twine Design Team.... It's been awesome being on the team for the last 2 years and I will miss sharing my projects with everyone each month!  I've loved creating all kinds of fun projects with twine and I hope you continue to visit me over at my blog. I always love trying out new ways to use twine on my projects!

I used some Candy Cane on my project today.

I made a bow with some of the Chevron Ribbon from the store and then added some Candy Cane Twine to the center on top of a sparkly green button. Then I also tied on a tag with some more twine. 

Here's the full shadow box filled with jingle bells and I cut the saying out with vinyl. 

You can pick up some of the Candy Cane Twine HERE
And the Chevron Ribbon HERE.

Christmas Gift Giving Ideas

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap with 2 more Christmas gift giving ideas using the 

For my first project I used a Cotton Bag and came up with this...
So cute right? 
I used the adorable Unity Stamp~ You Melt My Heart and stamped it onto my cotton bag using Stazon Black Ink. Then using some Candy Cane Trendy Twine and a needle, I sewed the twine into the heart and on the scarf in a very simple up and down pattern. After coloring the hat using my copic markers, I added some Christmas/Xmas red Stickles as well as some Orange Peel Stickles to his nose. I pulled out the string that comes with the Cotton Bag and threaded more of the Candy Cane Trendy Twine through the opening and tied knots to the ends of each side. To finish up my project, I added a cute die cut tag and filled the bag with some chocolate nuggets.

For my next project, I had to make some more Candy Sticks using the Skinny Candy Bags. These are perfect for handing out and I ended up making 25 of these for my son's class :)
I filled each of the Skinny Candy Bags with some red and green M&M's and sealed them shut, making sure to leave about an inch or so clear on the top. Then using my Cameo and a file I picked up in the Silhouette Store, I cut all the pieces for my reindeer toppers. I stamped his eyes using a Peachy Keen Stamps set, added some white gel pen doodles and made his nose sparkly with some Christmas/Xmas Red Stickles. To attach the tags to the bags, I tied some Candy Cane Trendy Twine around the tops of the bags (leaving some of the clear bag top to show) and then tied the tags in a bow on top.

 I hope you  have enjoyed my projects and will give some of these gifts a try!

Tis the Season to Sparkle!

Hi everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  Today I have a quick and simple Christmas card for you. 

I used the fabulous Candy Cane Trendy Twine on my card today.  I just love all the Christmas Trendy Twine colors--they are so fun! Originally, I was going to pop dot the top star too, but it was a bit thick.  So I just pop doted the one white star.  

It's been raining for over a week here so the pictures are not as good as I would like.  I am really, really ready for some sunshine :)

Now, be sure to visit the STORE to see what fun Trendy Twine you must have for Christmas.  And then you should join the Twine It Up! Facebook Group--there are lots of fun things going on over there!  Finally, there is a challenge going on!  Please join in--we really love to see everyone's creations and you know you need to wrap some gifts anyway.  Just be sure to use some Trendy Twine :)

Have a fabulous day!!

Joy Layout

Happy Monday!  It's Sukie here today and I have a holiday layout to share featuring Candy Cane Trendy Twine.
The title was cut from the Don Juan cartridge and the snowflakes from Wrap It Up, Winter Woodland and Spellbinders.  The snowflakes with the green background came from my stash.
The square tag also came from my stash and was embellished with a couple of hand cut flags.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Mini Messages stamp set.  I paper clipped the sentiment flag to the tag and added some twine to the paper clip.
More twine was added to each of the photo mats for a finishing touch.  The Candy Cane twine coordinated perfectly with my striped paper.
Please visit the store to check out all of the holiday colored twine.  Remember to join in our "Wrap It Up Challenge" going on this month.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
