Let's Celebrate!

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap.

The 4th of July is just a few days away I have another fun project to share using the Large Kraft Pillow Boxes and my all time favorite Trendy Twine~the Stars and Stripes!
Did you know that you can emboss these Kraft Pillow Boxes??? I did this one with the stars embossing folder from Cuttlebug and it gave the pillow box such an awesome texture. 
I did keep my project on the CAS side to really showcase the embossing on the box as well as show that wrapping some of the gorgeous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine around the box and attaching a sweet tag is just the finishing touches a 3D project needs.
Here is a close-up of the twine holding on the star tag. You can also see more the embossing and how awesome it looks. Some random sequins in the red, white and blue and this project is ready for the 4th of July celebrations (filled with some candy of course)

 Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
10 Kraft Pillow Boxes - Large

Celebrate the 4th Patriotic Popcorn

Happy Sunday Trendy Twiners!

It's Tammy from Creating Somewhere Under The Sun with you today!  If you are headed to a friend's for the 4th and looking for a little hostess gift to take...how about some Patriotic Popcorn in a cute jar with some fabulous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine?

I think any hostess would appreciate this don't you?
For my card, I started with a Real Red card base onto which I added a layer of blue and kraft patterned paper. To top that I added a star embossed layer of kraft cardstock to carry out the patriotic theme we are celebrating this month. 
I added lots of the fabulous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine behind a die-cut star to serve as my main focal image. I have always been a fan of Baker's Twine used this way! Just above my sentiment, I wrapped the twine around several times and tied in a bow to complete the card. 
I just added a little bit of the twine at the top of the lid to tie it all in and decorate the jar. The label was found on line. The popcorn is easy to make. Just melt white chocolate, add sprinkles and M & M's and toss. 
Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to pick up this Stars & Stripes twine for those patriotic projects. Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome day!

We play all day then walk home clean up and walk back down for a huge firework show provided by our city.  They light the fireworks right off ocean barges near the shore.  It's pretty amazing! So I thought some cute treats were in order for the 4th of July! What's better on the 4th of July than POPCORN? I used these adorable favor bags to hold some yummy popcorn that we can all carry down to the beach!
I used a die cut for the 4th of July.

I wrapped the number 4 with Stars and stripes Twine

I filled the bags with yummy popcorn that I'm sure the kids and adults will love!

Happy Fourth!

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations and I have a fireworks 4th of July card to show you today.  We are showcasing the fabulous Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine this month and it so one of my favorites!!

I used a firecracker that I glued my Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine on the 'fuse' and they on the middle section.  It was just a plain white section but this made it look so much better :)   I added some fun fireworks Doodlebug paper and lots of fun star sequins.  I pop dotted the top of the firework on and also pop dotted the whole firework to the card.

Make sure to keep checking in to see all the fun red, white, and blue projects the design team has made.  For more inspiration, join the Twine It Up! Facebook group and you can share your Trendy Twine projects as well.

Happy Fathers Day!

Hello fellow Trendy Twiners! It's Ann Marie from Yours TruLee! I was so honored when Lesley asked me if I wanted to do a Fathers Day post! Of course I said yes! So here I am!

Today is such a special day for me.  As we all celebrate our Fathers I think of the choice mine made.  He chose me to be his daughter and for that I will be forever grateful! I could never repay him for the love he has given me.  I'm thankful he found my mom and I.  I haven't always made the best choices in life but I am thankful for this great man who stood by me no matter what :) I love you dad and hope you have a wonderful Fathers Day!

As I thought about what I wanted to make I realized this was going to be more difficult then I realized lol.  My dad is not into fishing, or many other "hobbies".  He loves his motorcycle and is a die hard Harley Davis fan.  He also loves coffee and relaxing in front of the TV.  With that said I decided a card with a gift card holder would be the perfect gift for him!

I used a simple black cardstock with some wood grain background and then a simple Fathers Day sentiment.  The Midnight Twine was the perfect addition to the card! Men are so simplistic that you do not need to do much to make their cards look masculine.  

Here is the inside of the card.  On the left side I created a gift card slot and added more of the Midnight Twine. My dad LOVES Dunkin Donuts :) What a perfect gift :)

Here is a close up of the twine! Really love this color combo!

Thank you Lesley for letting me guest on the blog again! Always an honor and pleasure!

Hope you all enjoy celebrating your Fathers today! 

Yours TruLee,

Ann Marie

College Bound Congrats~

Happy Thursday Trendy Twiner Peeps! It's Tammy, and I have a masculine graduation card today using our fabulous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine which is still on sale!!!!
I started with a red card base onto which I added a layer of white cardstock. Using some patterned paper from my stash, I die-cut a banner adding to the middle left side of the card front. I added a strip of red polka-dot washi tape across the middle of the card. I then took a long length of the fabulous Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the card front several times for visual interest and texture.
I used a scallop and square die to serve as a mat for my focal image and added it to the upper right portion of the card. Lastly, I added a few sequins and the Congrats sentiment in the lower right corner to complete my card.
(On Sale!)

A 4th Of July Treat!

Hello, Trendy Twiners! 
It's Millie, from Crafting with Creative M, and its my day to post!
Today's project will feature this month's spotlight, which is the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine along with the Large Kraft Pillow Box.

Since the 4th of July is right around the corner I decided to made a fun treat.
I wrapped navy cardstock around the Large Kraft Pillow Box.
With my Cricut Explore and the Graphically Speaking cartridge I was able to make the red borders with stars, which I adhered on both sides of the navy cardstock. I then placed a strip of the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine on each side of my borders as well as small bows on the bottom portion of the Large Kraft Pillow Box. I used the CAC2 cartridge for my banner and made pom poms for each side with the Stars & Stripes Trendy Twine.
For the 4th of July doggie and his super cute outfit I used the CAC2.
I stamped the sentiment "Celebrate" from Teeny Tag Greetings by My Creative Time on the banner, which I made with the "When I was a Kid" cartridge. Since I am invited to a 4th of July BBQ, I will be making a few of these fun treats and filling them with red & blue gumballs. Fun & Yum!

Thank You to our Service Men and Women

Happy Sunday! It's Trendy Gal Melissa here from M Miranda Creations and I have another geat gift idea for you today as we spotlight the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine and the Kraft Pillow Boxes this month. I hope you have been keeping up with all the 4th of July inspiration that the Trendy Gals have been sharing all month long. 4th of July is such a fin holiday to craft for!
For my project, I wanted to make something I could use to thank those who serve. Or it could even be given to a hostess for a 4th of July gathering. I am using the Medium Kraft Pillow Box for this.
 For this card, I wanted the twine to be the focal point, so I did not add my usual paper piecing on top of the patterned paper. I wanted my Stars and Stripes Twine to pop off the card instead. I think the patterned paper and twine will makes it a great guy card which are sometimes so hard to come up with. And then the Medium Kraft Pillow Box is perfect for stuffing in a treat or a gift card. And it looks awesome wrapped with more of the twine and the added stars. It will make a wonderful gift set for anyone this 4th of July as we celebrate freedom, but especially to say thank you to those who serve.
Thank you for stopping by today. We hope you will stop by the store and see all the great products Lesley has for your 4th of July crafty needs. And please stop by the FB group page, Twine It Up, and share all your wonderful creations with us. And if you want a few more details on my gift set, please stop by my blog.

4th of July Pillow Box

Hello friends!  This is Tammy and I am featuring the Medium Kraft Pillow Box and Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine. As you have been seeing all the aweosme projects this month, the twine is a fabulous mix, of red, white, and blue. For my project, I started by stamping a cute border in Navy Blue ink along the top and bottom curves of the pillow box.
I added a die-cut border of stars to the center.  At the top and bottom of the border, I wrapped the box several times with the Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine. I added a label I created using spellbinders and stamps to the center. I added sequins throughout the project adding a Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine bow to the center of the label.
Lastly, I added a red seam binding bow to the top which was further embellished with a navy button tied off with Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine bow.

Planner Friday - June

Hello!  Planner Friday is officially one year old so I wanted to do a special theme for my pages to celebrate.  I decided gold and black was the way to go, it puts me in the mind of a classy cocktail party and I think it looks quite sophisticated.

Supplies used this week: Trendy Page Dots Circle Reinforcements

I received the newest set of stamps from Annies Paper Boutique this month.  It is called the Get It Done set and it has some great stamps in it to help you get organised!  You can see all of the stamps in the set in the photo above but my favourite one is the post it note image.  It has been designed to fit 3x3 inch post it notes or you could just use it to stamp onto notepaper as a way of highlighting your reminder or notes.  There is also a selection of stamps that fit in the top box of the post it note so you can pick the one that works best for you.  You can choose from ten different ones, from Goals and Shop to Urgent and This Week.

Get it done stamps in action

I used the Don't Forget stamp for my list of things I needed to pack and sort out for my daughter's trip to London yesterday.  I stuck the post it note on my page marker so I could see it every time I opened my planner.  I think it looks so much nicer than if I had written on a plain post it and it makes it stand out more so my eye was drawn to it straight away reminding me to get it done.

My week filled in

I hope you have enjoyed this Planner Friday!  I will be back with some more ideas for you next month, in the mean time why don't you stop by the store and see if anything takes your fancy?
