Planner Friday - November

Amanda here from She's Eclectic and it's Planner Friday! I can't hold it in any longer, I'm so excited!  December is only a day away and then we can all get into the festive mood!  With this in mind I have been using my APB stamps to plan my perfect Christmas.  I want to get the lights, decorations and Christmas tree up as soon as possible and spend my weekends watching holiday movies with my children.  Though there is all that pesky shopping, wrapping and card writing to get through as well so I definitely need my planner to help me!

As usual I started my spread by adding some strips of washi tape along the top and bottom of my pages and then chose some coordinating Christmas Trendy Page Dots to reinforce the holes and add an extra splash of colour.

These pages are my monthly overview so I'm only adding the most important reminders and events to them, I will be recording everything else like housework and my regular to do lists (or the boring bits!) in my weekly pages so this is really just to give me an idea of how my month is shaping up so far. I also wanted it to look fun and festive so I'd feel a little tingle of Xmas excitement whenever I check my planner!


I've recently moved into an A5 sized organiser so I had plenty of room to add some fun decoration to my pages using stamps from the FoodiesDrinks & More and Perfect Pairs sets, after all it's the season of cocoa and cookies with the odd glass of fizz thrown in as well!

It's Christmas!!

As you can see I still have space left so I can jot down anything else I need to know or remember as it comes along and I am going to use my naughty and nice sections to keep track of the things I have to do (naughty) and the things I want to do (nice)!

On one of the pages I popped a Love Letter planner clip as it reminded me of writing letters to Father Christmas, something I still need to do with my youngest daughter this year.  Fingers crossed there are no surprises on her list as Santa has already brought all her presents!

I absolutely love the APB Christmas stamps so I used lots of my favourite ones on this spread.  Some are for reminders and others are just quotes to add to the festive feeling.  There is a nice mix of practical and creative stamps in each set so you can use them for Christmas cards, crafts, memory keeping and planning.  They are really versatile and all six sets are currently on sale so you can grab yourself a bargain!

I will wish you a merry Christmas and happy holidays now just in case I am not back here again before then and I hope you have a wonderful December too!

Trendy Bakers Twine - Many Thanks

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly from MyPaperLove stopping in to share a Fall card using the spotlight color Orangesicle Trendy Twine and the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp set.

I love this color combo for Fall, it feels so warm and toasty. I used a bunch of scrap paper to create this card...something I need to do more of.

I used the pumpkin and Orangesicle Trendy Twine as the focal for the card.

The twine is gorgeous and I just wanted a very simple sentiment to compliment the twine.

Stop by the store to see all the Fall specials, here are the product I used on my card

Trendy Bakers Twine -- Thankful for You

Hello all!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  Today I have a card to share with you featuring Orangesicle Trendy Twine and the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp set, and I used some sequins from Chocolate Truffles and the Autumn Sequins mixes.

I picked a pumpkin from my Cricut Design Space and made it a print then cut.  Then I cut out a the white layer with a die to make the wavy border.  Next I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set and glued down my Orangesicle Trendy Twine.

After putting on all the paper layers, I glued on my pumpkin and my sequins the mixes.  I wanted some brown and some orange so using Chocolate Truffles and the Autumn Sequins together worked out well!

Be sure to head over to shop for all your holiday crafting!

Trendy Twine: Be Thankful Every Day

Happy Friday!
It's Migdalia from Crafting with Creative M with my last project as this month's guest designer. Thank you Lesley & DT ladies! I had so much fun! 

For today's project I used this month's spotlight, which is the Orangesicle Trendy Twine along with the Orange Chevron Treat Bags and the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set from APB.

I made some Treat Bags to take to the Thanksgiving Day dinner that I was invited to.
I started out by filling the Orange Chevron Treat Bags with some candy. Yum!
I sealed the top portion of each treat bag with double sided tape and then I wrapped some of the Orangesicle Trendy Twine around the top/bottom portion of the bag. For my papers I used all of my scraps that were left over from previous projects.

The adorable stamped images are from Denami Design. I adhered the images on to a scallop stitched tag and then adhered the scallop die cut on to a stitched die cut tag.

Next, I stamped the "Be thankful..." sentiment on a die cut label.

For the mini clothespin I added a Orangesicle bow with a rhinestone to the center. 

Here is a look at the fun products I used to complete my project:

Trendy Bakers Twine ~ Contemporary Thankful Card

Hello all and happy Tuesday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here sharing this "thankful" card I made recently. This month we are showcasing Orangesicle Trendy Twine which is awesome for fall projects, but can also be used any time of the year.
I started with some fun contemporary patterned papers from DCWV's Peachy Keen stack.  I wanted the sentiment from APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set to be the focal point, so I stamped it in black ink on a Mango Tag-It, then layered that on a White Tag-It.  I added a Lime Orangesicle Trendy Page Dot to the tag then tied Orangesicle Trendy Twine through the hole.
I wrapped three strands of Orangesicle Trendy Twine around the light gray cardstock to add a little more visual interest to the card.  To embellish, I glued Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems and Autumn Sequins on the lower right corner.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
