Baby shower gifts with lots of Trendy style

Hi There Trendy Fans!

Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a baby shower gift idea. Today I'm showcasing Tickled with Teal. I found the most beautiful gum balls at the candy store, they have a pearl finish to them.  They are too pretty to eat :) I wanted to make little gifts for an upcoming baby shower.  I wanted something simple and fun. So I think these may be the winner, but I still have some time to try some other fun stuff too. Everything except the kraft paper and gumballs came from the Trendy Boutique

Let's start with these fabulous Medium Candy Bags perfect size for large gumballs. 

Next are the toppers, which were made using Echo Park paper pads.

and finally that gorgeous twine... Tickled with Teal & finished off with a great little tag and sweet sentiment.

Be sure to stop by the store... All original colors (mini & spools) are on sale!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

Treats Just for You!

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap 
and I am so excited to be sharing another project with you all!

The DT have been sharing projects all month using one or more of the Trendy Twine original twists~

So for my projects today, I used 3 of the above colors, Strawberry Cupcake , Blue Berry  and Twisted Lime to make these sweet party favors!
Wouldn't your party guests just love to take these home with them??? 
And the great thing about these is they are so easy to make! 
Here is how I did them.... I used the adorable Mini Treat Cups (you can purchase these either in individual colors or a multi pack of all 3 colors) and filled them with some Hersey Kisses. Remember that you can always use whatever treats you want... these are what I had on hand :) Then using some of the new Mini Wood Scoops, I stuck them into each of the cups.

For these 2 treat cups, I added a matching tag and then tied either the Blue Berry Trendy Twine or the Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine onto the Mini Wood Scoops.

For my Lime Polka Dot cup, I packaged this one a little differently. I placed the treat cup with the mini wood scoop into a treat bag and then tied a matching tag with the Twisted Lime Trendy Twine to hold everything together.
Either way you decide to package your treats, I know your guests would love it!!

Don't forget the Original Six Trendy Twine's are on sale this month for $6.95 for the sampler 
or get each spool for $7.95 each. What a DEAL!!

Girly Spa treat and card

Hi everyone!
Kimberly from Hellocutiecrafts here.
Today I am sharing a project for the Trendy Twine Design Team.
For my project, I made a side step card and used one of the 1x8 Clear Candy tubes
Trendy Chevron Pink Page Dots and a White Tag all from Annie's Paper Boutique.

Card from the side.

I love all the pinks and purples together! 
Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine is one of my favorites, 
there are just so many possibilities!!

This Clear Candy Tube fits 4 of these mini nail polishes, mini nail files and a mini orange stick perfectly!!
What a fun gift to give to big and little girls alike!!
These would also make fabulous party favors.

This white tag is also available in the Store in different colors and sizes. 
I also used the Trendy Pink Chevron Page dots too! 
There are several colors and designs to choose from.
 The Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine used in today's project is also on sale!!

Gift Tags...

Happy Friday Morning!!! 

It's Candi again from FILO*eye*candi to share with you all another project
showcasing two Trendy Twine Minis!

Here are a couple of gift tags that I created...
Above I used the following items...
Black Chevron Trendy Page Dots

Above I used the following items...

To create these tags you will need the following items...
-any color/size shipping tags
-black ink pad
-"To" +  "From" stamp or you can just use your own handwriting
-any color Trendy Twine
-fun stickers
-matching Trendy Page Dots
-kraft bags
-colored tissue paper

How to place the twine around shipping tag...
I used my roller adhesive and rolled over the bottom/back several times.  I placed the start of my twine on the bag against the adhesive and wrapped the twine around 5-7 times until the way I liked it.  Cut the twine off at the back side and stick it down against the adhesive.  Stamp or write your "To" and "From"...add some cute stickers and then place a Trendy Page Dot around the hole of the shipping tag.  Take your scissors and cut a slit at the center/top of tag so it can go around the handle of your kraft bag!  

I want to thank Lesley for having me as a guest designer this month.
It was so much fun creating with a great product.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend :)

Smile it's your day!

Hi everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  And today I have a super quick and easy card to show you.  I am using the Orangesicle Trendy Twine today.  I LOVE this twist!

I really wasn't sure what I wanted to make today so this is what came out.  I do love making the twine a focal point and this turned out fun.  The twine wanted to slip down, so I did tape it a lot on the back to hold it in place.

The die and stamp are from My Creative Time.  I die cut the Smile three times to give it a bit more dimension.  That pattern paper is from Echo Park Dots 6x6 paper pad and the pearls are Doodlebug Tangerine Mini Pearls.

Don't forget that all 6 original Trendy Twine Colors are on sale this month and you can even get a six pack mini of those too.  You can see lots of inspiration over at the Twine It Up! Facebook Page.  I hope to see you posting over there :)

Have a fabulous day!

You brought COLOR into my life.

 Good Morning!!!

This is Candi from FILO*eye*candi and I am super excited to
be here as the guest designer this month! 

There are sooooooo many amazing colors to choose's hard to just pick a few to
create with so I decided on 5 beautiful colors!

Supplies used for the card I created...
 For this greeting card I used white cardstock, scrapbook paper, circle punch,
mini stapler, inks, popsicle sticks, adhesive, pop dots and of course......Trendy Twine!

 I basically trimmed down my patterned paper to size, crumpled it up,
then spread it out onto my white card base and stapled
it down on all four corners.

Next up I took each ink color and "smeared" it against all four edges of the card...

Now it's time to grab those popsicle sticks and twine......
I started off using a glue dot to hold my twine in place at the beginning (back side
of the popsicle stick)...then I continued to wind the twine around the
popsicle stick...towards the end I cut the twine and used another glue dot to hold
that end in place.

Time to assemble the card...
I used liquid adhesive and spread it out in the middle of the card and
started to lay out my popsicle sticks, pressing them down firmly.
Then I topped it off with a circle layer and then my saying using pop dots
for a little added dimension to the card!

I had so much fun creating with this gorgeous twine!
Looking forward to sharing another project with you all next week :)

A "Christmas In July" Treat!!

Hello, Trendy Twiners!
It's Millie, from Crafting with Creative M, today sharing my project with you.
Today's spotlight is Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine.
So for my project I made a Super cute & Yummy Treat!
A "Christmas In July" Treat!
What else would go perfect with Peppermint Stick Twine!
With my portrait, I used the print, cut & offset feature on my adorable KBD Christmas Bear.
I then placed my Christmas Bear on a oval shape.
In my Christmas stash I found the polka dotted ribbon which went perfect with the
Peppermint Stick and Button!
I then stamped "I Love You Beary Much" from CDD's Punny Stamp Set.
Remember, I said a treat, a yummy treat?
I used a Small Kraft Bag and put (2) chocolate Ghirardelli's inside.
So, what do you think?
Here is a look at the Small Kraft Bags (HERE)
Here is a look at the Fun & Festive Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine
and it's on sale (HERE)

Planner Friday - July

Hi! Can you believe it is Planner Friday again already? I can't, the month has flown by! 

I explained in my first post how I go about decorating my diary pages and what I put in them, in this post I want to show you my pages for this week and which Annie's Paper Boutique products I have used on them. 


How my week started out

Now for an English woman I have a pretty big coffee addiction! I mean I like tea, I really do but sometimes only coffee will make me happy so I dedicated this week to my love of that little bean. 

The Feeling Happy Planner Stamp Set, Personalised Journal Tags and coordinating Hello Dottie Trendy Page Dots are all new products and I love them! 

I had been thinking recently that my life seems to revolve around my to do lists and it would be nice to spend a little time concentrating on myself. I used to keep a journal when I was a teenager but it's not something I would enjoy doing now.... and I'm slightly worried there wouldn't be anything interesting to write in it anyway! But I would like to spend a little time each day reflecting on how it went and how I felt which is where the Feeling Happy stamp set comes in. The set has stamps saying Today, I'm, Feeling and then a wide range of emotion stamps. I received them last week so I am using them in my planner for the first time this week and I think they are fab! It is like keeping a journal but less time consuming and easier too.  

At Home Planner stamps and
Personalised Journal Tags in use.

I have used the Personalised Journal Tag as a note card this week and punched holes in it so it can go on my rings.  I just adore the sweet teacup drawing on it and how it goes with the Trendy Page Dots perfectly.  I'm a sucker for things that match! 

On the rings

This Love My Cup of Joe Coffee Clip also looks adorable with the theme!

My nearly finished week

So that's it for another month, I will see you again in August! In the mean time why don't you stop by the store and check out the planning supplies, I would love to know if you get creative with your planner pages too! Oh and did you spot the cute owl paper clip from Kawaii Paperie in the back of my planner?

Treat Bag

Hello, this is Sukie and I have a treat bag to share.  I used a medium sized glassine bag with a wooden spoon and fork from Annie's Paper Boutique for my project.  I was looking for a creative use for the wooden spoon and fork and saw a similar idea on Pinterest.
I tucked in some goodies inside the bag, folded it over and attached a fun tag.  I punched 2 different scalloped circles from the EK Success Scalloped Circle punches and stamped a sentiment from the Craftin Desert Diva's Say It Big stamp set.  The top circle was popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  Some polka dotted washi tape was wrapped around the spoon and fork for a pop of color.
The finishing touch to my treat bag was a double bow made from Twisted Lime Trendy Twine. This is one of my go to colors for my projects.  The twine is tied around the spoon and fork keeping them in place as a decorative element for my treat bag.
Make sure to stop by the store to check out the products I used and all of the other crafty supplies available for purchase.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
