3x3 Notecards

Hello everyone!  It's Krystle from Krystle's Crafty Niche & I'm super excited to be guest designing today!  I decided to make some 3x3 notecards for my project.  I absolutely LOVE 3x3 cards & love to have them on hand just in case.(:  Here are 2 that I created using some Bumblebee Trendy Twine.

I used some of my favorite products on these 2 cards.  I used Jaded Blossom's Flag Die for my banners.  I also used Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings & Simple Sayings 2  stamp sets for my sentiments.  I added some adhesive gems to the top of my cards to finish them off.  I love how adding some trendy twine to my projects help them pop!  (:

Here is a close up of each of my cards.

I want to thank Lesley for allowing me to be a guest DT today!  Thanks for stopping by! (:

Hey There......{CAS w/Jessica}

Morning Trendy Twiners!
Jessica from Chick-n-Scrap here to share a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using one of the featured colors for the month~Pink Midnight

It is always nice to have a stack of cards on hand for those last minute Just Because cards, Birthday cards and/or Thinking of You cards. Adding embellishments as a focal point not only makes your quick and easy card really stand out, but makes it look like you spent more time constructing your card than you really did :)
Here is the card that I made.....
I was able to use all scraps for my card, picking out the pink Bazzill cardstock and a small black piece of cardstock that match the colors in the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine.
Once I cut my colored cardstock to size to fit my white card base, using my ATG I attached the black to my pink paper. 

When adding the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine, I cut 2 small notches on either side of where I was wrapping the twine around the cardstock. This adds a place for the twine to sit and helps it to stay in place on my card as well.
Next I stamped my sentiment~ from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set right above where my colored cardstock will sit using Versifine Onxy Black Ink.
After adding the colored cardstock to my base, I further embellished my card using some enamel dots.

The GREAT thing about this card is you can make several in no time, and by just changing up the twine colors, sentiments and papers make it work for any occasion :)

I hope you have enjoyed my card and remember that tip I mentioned about wrapping twine around your cards :) It really does work GREAT!

Before I head out make sure to check out the Trendy Twine store for these GREAT featured colors for the month of February as well as several other colors on sale!

A Chocolate Treat!!!

Hi Trendy Twiners!!  
It's Migdalia, from Crafting with Creative M, here to share my project. 
Here is my Yummy and Super cute chocolate candy wrapper.
For the wrapper, I measured it according to the bar itself and used double sided tape
to adhere the back and bottom. On the bottom portion I used a Paper Crimper.
I cut pieces of cardstock (pink & black) and stamped a background "Love" collage from
My Creative Time.
I cut out hearts (CAC2) and used Peachy Keen Stamps on one of the hearts
and on the other I used the YUMMY Pink Licorice Twine with a button.

Pink Licorice Trendy Twine - Pink & Black Bakers Twine

For the top portion of my treat, I used 3 Girl Jam Ribbons and made a
SWEET bow with the Pink Licorice Twine.
Here is my chocolate Treat!!!
