Trendy Twine ~ Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  Today on the Trendy Twine blog, the DT has wonderful thanksgiving projects to share with you.  Make sure to head over there to see them all!  Here is the card I created.
I wrapped Orange Truffle Trendy TwineSpiced Pumpkin Trendy Twine, and Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine around the patterned paper (DCWV's Sweater Weather stack) on the card base.  I die cut a leaf out of the Large Mango Tag-It and traced around the opening with pencil onto the card front.  I then adhered Autumn Sequins, and Chocolate Truffle Sequins in the area that would show through the leaf cut.  The Large Mango Tag-It was decorated with more of the Trendy Twines and a sentiment from the APB Happy Thanksgiving stamp set.  The tag was adhered to the front with foam tape.
Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Baptism Card

I love creating frilly things for girls, and since I have all boys, I jumped at the chance when my mom asked me to create a girl baptism card!
For the papers, I used DCWV's Whites 6x6, Gold Foil 6x6, and Fairytale Dreams stacks.  It is hard to see, but the cross die cut is a glittery white paper.  The dies I used are Cottage Cutz Ornate Cross die, Spellbinders Floral Oval die, and Stitched Rectangle and Scalloped Stitched Rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs.
To embellish, I used white crinkled seam binding, GMD soft pink pearls, and a little flower.  Adhesives used include ATG and Scotch Tacky glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Thankful Treat Bags

Hello all and happy Tuesday!  I am sharing these thankful treat bags that my 5 year-old son and I created on the Trendy Twine blog today.
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 removable Glue Dots. The tag was adhered with Craft Glue Dots.
Connor was really proud of the treats he gave to his teachers!

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

Christmas Cookies!

Good Monday Morning!  I recently was baking Christmas cookies to freeze for next month, and that spurred me to create this set of projects for you today!  All of the files are from SVG Attic's JGW Mama Kringle's Kitchen.
 The Pretzel card was quick to assemble.  I inked around the cuts with brown chalk ink for extra dimension.
 I also inked around the cuts on the tart (or as I like to see it, pie!) card.  For the topping, I brushed Crackle Accents on it and added glitter.  It really looks like a pie crust that is crackled and glittery with sugar!
 I also made the ribbon box from that set to hold some cookies!  You can find the tutorial for assembling this box HERE.  All patterned papers on these projects are from DCWV's Hand Painted Christmas stack.
Here is the inside of the box.  It fit 9 cookies inside!
 And just because I love to bake, here is a close up of the White Chocolate Peppermint Pudding cookies that went inside the box.  They are more yellow because I used French Vanilla pudding instead of the traditional vanilla pudding mix.  If you are a fan of peppermint, I highly recommend trying out the recipe HERE.  They are yummy and stay soft, just like I like my cookies :)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
