Trendy Twine - Pumpkin Greetings

Hello Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a pile of pumpkin fun :) I just love the APB Fall Stamps and the pumpkin is my favorite! So I decided to use it along with our spotlight color Creamy Pumpkin to create a fun little card. 

I simply stamped the pumpkins like they were stacked on one another :) I added a little tag that I stamped with two sentiments from the APB Fall Stamps and then tied it with Creamy Pumpkin

Super simple and easy card for Fall.

Trendy Twine -- Give Thanks

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  I know we are all thinking about Christmas right now, but I'm posting one last fall project today using the Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine along with the Autumn Sequin Mix and the Chocolate Truffle Sequins.

I made this banner with a file that was shared in a Cricut Group.  It was just so fun and I knew my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine would look great with the paper I picked out.  

I added Clear Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen to all the letters and the leaf.  You can see that much better in person as it's hard to photograph a banner 😃 Then I added some Autumn Sequins along with brown sequins from the Chocolate Truffle Mix to the panel.  I didn't want to over do those.

Lastly, I tied little Creamy Pumpkin Bows to put on all the banners--two per banner.  Then I laid it out on the floor, doubled up my twine, and glued all the top tabs around the twine to secure it.  It's pretty sturdy!

This folds up nicely to store for next year!

Planner Friday - November

Yes!  We are so close to December I can almost taste it!  I can't wait for the festive period to start so I thought for this month's Planner Friday I would show you my Christmas themed spread in my Travellers Notebook.

My Christmas spread

I wanted to record some of my favourite things about Christmas and list the things I am looking forward to doing next month so I got to work with my Annie's Paper Boutique stamps!  I absolutely LOVE my Christmas stamp sets, they are full of fun and quirky quotes that are perfect for journalling, card making, gift tags and lots more!  

On the first page I have used the Christmas Movies stamp from the This is December set for the list of films I want to watch over the holidays and I added a couple of stamps from the Foodies set as there will definitely be snacks involved while I watch them!  Frozen is a family favourite in this house so the Do you want to build a snowman? stamp from the Let It Snow set just had to make an appearance too!

On the second page I have a list of things I need to do but they are also things I enjoy.  I can't wait to put up the tree, cover the house in decorations, hit the shops to buy gifts and treats and then wrap it all up.  I also recorded some of my favourite things to drink and eat using the This Is December #2
and Drinks & More stamp sets and I have left myself a space to add a photo of my children I am going to take on Christmas Eve while they are waiting for Santa to arrive.

The last thing I did was to give myself a reminder that I need to put out some cookies and milk for Father Christmas and a carrot for Rudolph and I used the image stamps from my Perfect Pairs set for this.  I think they look super cute!

Are you all set for Christmas?  Do you want to get organised in 2018?  Why don't you pop over to the store now and check out all the fab products to help you finish off the year with a bang and banish the January blues at the start of the year?

See you again next month!

Trendy Twine ~ Thankful Treat Bags

Hello all and happy Tuesday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today, and I am sharing these thankful treat bags that my 5 year-old son and I created.
He wanted to make something for his preschool teachers, so I got out my Annie's Paper Boutique and let him choose what he wanted to use!  He started by stamping the Kraft Large Tag-It with a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set in blue (his favorite color!) and a pumpkin stamp which we heat embossed with copper embossing powder.  He added the tags to Orange Chevron Treat Bags.

Here are the finished bags! He also used Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Page Dots and Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine on the tags.
He added candy in the bags and glued them shut with Glue Dots.
Connor was really proud of the treats he gave to his teachers!

Here is what we used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Trendy Twine - Send Coffee Now

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I have coffee themed project to share.  With it being a nice cool fall I have coffee on the brain which inspired this fun tag.  I used the adorable APB Need Coffee stamp set and lots of Distress Inks to create my tag.  I used a die to cut out my tag and then used a smoothing technique using ink and water to create the background of my tag.  The tag was also splattered with some paint.
Next, I stamped the images and sentiments on my tag, watercoloring each image.  I added some Wink of Stella to each of the images for a sparkly effect.  A few sparkly enamel dots complimented the images.  Some Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine was used to accent my tag.  A small wooden button was threaded with the twine as a fun embellishment.
The products used on my tag are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Trendy Twine - Eat Drink and be Thankful

 Hi There Trendy Twiners!

This is Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a fun new product this month our Kraft cup sleeves. These sleeves are absolutely perfect on their own but I thought I would really decorate this sleeve so you can see all the possibilities. I found this reusable coffee cup at the Dollar Tree and I saw some at Target and CVS. These are so perfect to fill with Coffee treats, cookies or even a coffee gift card which is just what I did.

First I just found some Fall themed paper and covered the sleeve. Next I threaded some Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Bakers Twine through the sleeve.

I found a cute label that had a Fall sentiment and added a to-go coffee cup stamp from the Drinks and More Stamp Set. Then I just tied a bow of Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Bakers Twine around the label.

We have plenty of Fall inspiration for you in the coming weeks, be sure to stop by the blog often!

All of these fun products are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique

Trendy Twine -- Hello Coffee

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  Today's project is a decorated coffee cup. We have some fun new Kraft Cup Sleeves in the store to play with!

To start, I used one of the cute leaf stamps from the Hello Fall Stamp Set and stamped it all over the Kraft Cup Sleeve.  Then, I slipped it onto the cup and wrapped my Creamy Pumpkin Trendy Twine around it a few times. I decided to slip in a Wooden Spoon so I tied if off to that to hold it in place.

Since I was using a Mango (Light Orange) Tag-it, I decided to add it to the top of the spoon and add my bow of twine there.  I did pop tape the tag to the spoon to help hold it in place.

The Tag-It has a Trendy Page Dot on it and the sentiment is from the Smile Stamp Set and I added a leaf to that cut from my Cricut. To finish it off, I added a few Autumn Sequins.

This is a reusable cup so will make a cute gift!

Be sure to keep checking back to see all the fun projects this month! I used a lot of products from the store on my project today so be sure to click the links to see them and shop 😃

Annie's Paper Boutique - Cup of Holiday Cheer

Happy Friday!

We are spotlighting our Mini Cups today.  At a bit under three inches in height, 
they are absolutely adorable.  These little cups are one of our favorite 
products because they have so much potential. They can be altered to 
fit any occasion -- use them for candy and small treats or use them for a tiny 
coffee or cocoa cup. The possibilities are endless.  

The Trendy Gals have created some super festive projects to give 
your day a little bit of extra happiness.


Did you see how Shelly altered one of our Biggie Kraft Boxes
What a brilliant idea.  It's perfect as a cup holder.
