Trendy Twine - Ahoy

Hi Trendy Fans!

Are you loving all the "Nauti" going on this month? I sure am! I'm sort of obsessed with the nautical theme right now since our last vacation. We were fortunate enough to visit Sweden and stayed with friends in the most beautiful little fishing/boating town. So every store had the MOST gorgeous nautical products. So I'm so happy that this is our them this month and we are spotlighting "In the Navy" Trendy Twine. 
I wanted to make a card that was universal so I could use it for different occasions although I kind of looks like baby boy colors. I started with die cutting rectangle mats from blue and white striped paper.  I die cut a large anchor to be the focal point.

I just LOVE the huge anchor with the trendy twine tied around. Lastly, I just printed the sentiment on my card stock because I actually couldn't find an "Ahoy" stamp, (I think someone needs to do some stamp shopping) I hope you all have a chance to visit the blog, we have some fun inspiration all month long.

Trendy Twine ~ Nautical Treat Bag

Happy Thursday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today and I am sharing this fun nautical themed treat bag that I recently created.
I started by filling a Kraft Chevron Treat Bag with some chocolate candy and decorated it with the cute "Feeling Nauti" printable from the Fun In The Sun printables and red and navy cardstock die cut squares.
In The Navy Trendy Twine was wrapped around the length of the bag twice and then I created the rope with more of that twine using the Sizzix Twist N Style tool.  I chose red sequins from the Christmas Shaker Medley and some white enamel dots for embellishments.  The sequins and twine were adhered with Glue Dots stitch glue squares.

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

Trendy Twine - Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Hello!  This is Sukie and I have a nautical themed single page layout to share featuring some In the Navy twine.  The papers are from the DCWV Coastal stack.
To create my layout page, I cut out the helm using my Cricut Explore and the Life is a Beach cartridge. I layered a photo mat on top and added some cut outs and sentiments from the same paper stack.  A White Tag-Its was stamped with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Anchors Away (retired) stamp set.  Some twine and a Chevron Trendy Page Dot were used as embellishments for the tag.
My layout page was embellished with some paper flowers from my stash, a few die cuts and twine accents.  I added some cork stickers to the flower centers.  The finishing touch was a twine embellishment created with a square knot.
This gorgeous twine is available over at Annie's Paper Boutique along with lots of crafty products. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

Trendy Twine -- Miss You!

Hello everyone!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  Today, I made a card for you using In the Navy Trendy Twine.  I have not used this twine enough and really look forward to playing with it all month long.

I used an anchor cut from my Cricut to start with.  It had a 'rope' cut out on top that I thought would be a perfect place to use my In the Navy Trendy Twine.  I glued down four rows onto the rope cut and used some clear Wink of Stellar on the anchor.

Then I found the perfect paper for this project--the anchor paper was even the right color!! I added a white base with a wavy die cut border so you could definitely see the pattern paper.  It needed something else so I also glued my In the Navy twine to the bottom of the border and added a bow.  To finish it off, I added clear gems for some sparkle.

Keep visiting to see more fun projects this month!

Trendy Twine - Cupcake Card

Hi There Trendy Fans!

It's Shelly from My Paper Love sharing a cupcake birthday card using our spotlight color  Bubblegum Taffy. I am just loving all the gorgeous projects this month. I used our fun theme Sweet Treats.

I found this cute paper with flag banners on it and thought it would be cute to line some of the banners with the Bubblegum Taffy twine. I die cut a circle and inked it up and then added a little paint platters.

I originally wanted to make a "Hi" card for a friend, but I thought these colors were better suited for a birthday card. They always remind me of a party :)

Hope you stop by the blog and have a look at all the FUN!

Trendy Twine -- Have a Happy Day!

Hello all!  I'm Helen from HTB Creations.  I hope you are enjoying the posts this month.  I just love the Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine we have been using!

I've made a quick card to show you today. First, I picked out this candy jar cut from my Cricut Design Space.  I knew I wanted to use something pink or blue to go with my Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.  This is a print them cut and I was excite to see that it had layers that you could cut too.  So I let it print and cut the three big candy pieces that I pop doted on for some dimension.

Next, I cut out the oval shape and glued my twine around. I like to to that to make the twine really part of the card.  I stamped the sentiment from the Smile Stamp Set that you can find in the store.  The I pop dotted my candy jar onto it.  The sequins came from two mixes -- Frosty Sequins and Raspberry Cupcake Sequins. If you don't have the colors you need in one, it doesn't hurt to use two :)

And there you have a quick and simple card!

Planner Friday - July

Hello!  Welcome to Planner Friday!  I know for some of you the summer holidays began a while ago but here in the UK the schools don't finish until this afternoon and I really can't wait!  I wanted to do a tropical theme in my planner to celebrate the start of lazy days and endless sunshine (fingers crossed!) so let me show you what I used and how it turned out.

Products used:

Used but not pictured:

As always I started out with some washi tape and Trendy page dots to give my pages a splash of colour and then got out my collection of planner stamps to fill in my to do lists and reminders.  

My Planner Friday to do list

I also made myself a little Planner Friday card to keep track of what I needed to do for today's post and added a bit of Trendy bakers twine just because it's such a pretty colour!

My week so far

I am documenting my week using one of the newer stamp sets from Annie's Paper Boutique, they are so funny and give me a giggle when I am selecting which one sums up My day.  Some of my favourites from this set are "Didn't slap anyone", "Kept the kids alive" and "Overindulged in planner supplies" which is particularly apt for me!  I am using a different colour ink for these stamps so it is easy to see straight away what kind of week I have been having and I love the combination of pinks and greens together.

If you are feeling the urge to overindulge in planner supplies too then stop by the store now and see what takes your fancy!  Go on, treat yourself!

See you again next month!

Trendy Twine ~ Hello Sweetie Treat Bag

Happy Thursday!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you and I am sharing this sweet treat bag today.
I decorated the Kraft Tin Tie Bag with papers from DCWV's Sweet Stack and the sheer ribbon from the Pretty In Pink Ribbon Set.  Then I adhered oval die cuts of that yummy cake to the center of the bag and finished that off with a bow of Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine.
I added a Kraft Tag-Its to the bag that was stamped with images from the APB Foodies stamp set and a sentiment from the APB You & Me stamp set.  I also added a Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot to the tag and finished it off with a tassel of Bubblegum Taffy Trendy Twine, a pink pom-pom trim from the Pretty In Pink Ribbon Set and some white gel pen doodling.

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