Trendy Twine - So thankful for you

Good Morning!

I'm over on the Trendy blog sharing a Fall card. I can't believe this is the last day of November, WOW, that went quick. I have one last card to share using some gorgeous Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine & the Happy Thanksgiving stamp perfect combo for Fall.
I saw this great big sunflower and thought it would look great with the spiced pumpkin colors. I found some pretty plaid paper and paired the two.

I stamped the sentiment at the bottom because I wanted this to be the focal for the twine.

I had this idea in my head and it was easy and I really liked the way it turned out. I left a space at the bottom of the card and  hole punched holes along the bottom. I simply weaved the twine and tied a bow. Simple but I think it gives a nice finish to the card.

I hope you had a chance to pop over to the blog and see all the inspiration and purchase these goodies while they're on sale.

Trendy Twine - Happy Thanksgiving from the Trendy team!

Good Morning!


Happy Thanksgiving to you! The Trendy team would like to share some Thanksgiving wishes with you. Hop over to the Trendy blog and check out all the gorgeous projects!
I created a simple card but shows off the gorgeous twine so nicely.


I simply die cut a rectangle with a stitched die as the base for my Trendy Twine wreath. I coated my natural twine in glue and shaped it into a wreath. I tied a bow with Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine

Last but not leas,t I stamped the inside of the wreath with a sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving Stamp Set.


I just want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and may you all enjoy a beautiful dinner and a wonderful day with family and friends.

Die Cuttin" Diva's - Anything Goes

Hi There!

It's Tuesday and welcome to another challenge day over at DCD, this week we have our most popular challenge.... Anything Goes! So come over and show us what you're working on, just be sure it has a die cut :)

I know I should really be making Christmas cards, tags, gift cards, but frankly I just wasn't ready for all that. I pulled out some Christmas goodies a while back made a few tags and then put everything back in the cabinet :( true story. I know I'll feel more festive after Thanksgiving. So I made a little thank you card just to have on hand.

Pretty simple card. I recently purchased a bunch of dies from Die Versions and this was one of them. I cut the die first and then I cut again with a stitched circle die which I also purchased from Die Versions. 

I liked the combo of peach, black & white. I added a few liquid enamel dots and the card was complete.

Please pop over to Die Cuttin Divas Challenge and check out the inspiration from DT and join us for the challenge! We would love to have you.

Birthday Celebration for Janice

Hi There!

We have another fun surprise from the Trendy Twine Team and friends! Today is Janice's Birthday! That's Lesley's mom :) what better way to send birthday wishes than to have a little blog hop/post :) I hope you have an extra special day Janice!

I made Janice a card with lots of TT & APB Goodies. I used some of my special paper (you know that paper you save forever) Well this was the perfect occasion to use it :) 

I paired the paper with a die cut balloon and some Cranberry Trendy Twine.  I gave the twine a little twist by simply coating the twine in clear glue and letting it dry around a pencil, paint brush, or anything that is a thin cylinder. I stamped Happy Birthday from the APB smile set and added some GORGEOUS sequins called Christmas Shaker Medley .

Janice, I sure hope all the cards put a smile on your face and you enjoy your special day!

Trendy Twine - Have a Wonderful Day!

Hi There!

Today is a VERY special day.... Surprise Lesley, Happy Birthday to you! The design team wanted to celebrate your special day in a special way :) So each of us have a post for you. Thank you for being such a fabulous bloggy boss :) You are so much fun to work with! I sure hope you have a GREAT day!


I know how much you love Kitty:) I just couldn't decide between Hello Kitty and Minnie :) In the end Kitty won. I found an awesome chipboard selection of super cute Hello Kitty's and this one was my favorite.
I simply die cut some rectangles and popped them up for dimension.  I adhered Hello Kitty and added some Totally Red Trendy Twine under the balloon. I used a sentiment from the Smile set. 
I sent Lesley a fun little gift hopefully it makes her smile/laugh. I wrapped the gift with more Totally Red Trendy Twine and added a little tag.

Lesley, Hope you have a fantastic day my friend!

Trendy Twine - Give Thanks

Good Morning!


I'm over on the Trendy blog sharing a Fall themed Thank you treat using this months spotlight products Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine & Orange Mini Open End Envelopes. I just love to make treats and thought these little envelopes would be perfect to hold a sweet treat.
I started with decorating these cute Orange Mini Open End Envelopes with some fun paper and some die cut leaves. The Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine matched perfectly with this paper.... I really had to search for just the right color but I finally found some and I just love how it turned out. 


Here's a close up of the Thanksgiving stamp and the twine - so pretty!


I filled my envelopes with a mini size candy car and I wrapped the bar with coordinating paper and tied each one with more Spiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine.

These little envelopes fit a variety of fun things like a small note, tag, gift card and a mini or full size candy bar too. 
Stop by the store and grab some goodies!
