Trendy Twine - Gift Card Holder

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I am sharing a quick gift card holder featuring some beautiful Totally Pink Trendy Twine.  I used a Small Glassine Bag which was punched on the edge and then embossed for a decorative finish.
I added a tag from the DCWV Watercolor stack to the bag and embellished it with some die cut hearts in different sizes.  A gold clip was used to attach the tag to the glassine bag.  A few accents of Totally Pink twine were the finishing touch on my project.
The products used to create my gift card holder are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!

Trendy Twine ~ Sprinkled With Love Cards

Hello crafty friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  This month we are featuring Totally Pink Trendy Twine.  
I really loved working with all the colors on these papers from DCWV's Confetti stack.  It had the perfect shade of pink to coordinate with the Trendy Twine!
This bottom part is where most of the details are.  The border and bow of Totally Pink Trendy Twine, a small doily and square die cut, a Doodlebug Designs cupcake brad, and some coordinating sequins.

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

Trendy Twine - Love Day

Hi Trendy Fans!

This is Shelly over at My Paper love with a Valentine card using some gorgeous Totally Raspberry . I always make a few cards for Valentine's day and usually they are for my boys so I try to not use a ton of pink & red.
Although, I did use a great big pink heart with some Totally Raspberry :) HAHA! 
Oh my gosh, Totally Raspberry is such a pretty pink I just couldn't resist.
I die cut a pink heart and then I die cut a smaller heart in the center and just lined the small heart with twine. 
For the sentiment I used two stamp sets Documenting-the-Everyday-Stamp-Set & Smile-Stamp-Set and simply stamped the sentiment off center.

I hope everyone has a GREAT Valentine's day!

Trendy Twine - Treat Set

Happy Monday!  This is Sukie and I have a Valentine's treat set to share featuring some gorgeous Totally Pink Trendy Twine.  I embellished a Small Kraft Gable Box with papers from the DCWV DIY Project Stacks - Mini Albums and Tags.  The gable box is the perfect size for tucking in some yummy treats.
I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies from Gina Marie Designs to create the base layers of my card.  The tag on the gable box and card were both accented with the Totally Pink twine.  The pop of pink twine was the perfect embellishment on my projects.  A couple of enamel dots finished off my card.
The products used on my project are available over at Annie's Paper Boutique. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have an awesome day!

Trendy Twine ~ Milk & Cookies Treat Bag

Hello crafty friends!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  This month we are featuring Totally Pink Trendy Twine.  I started out with a Kraft Chevron Favor Bag and glued a section of a die cut paper from DCWV's 6x6 Paper Lace stack to the front.  Once I added the treat into the bag, I tied it shut vertically with Totally Pink Trendy Twine
For the tag, I started with a Pink Tag-Its and stamped the XOXO from the You & Me Planner Stamps.  On top of that I added a Biggie Kraft Tag with Metal Rim.  I die cut a stitched circle and stamped a sentiment from the We Go Together Planner Stamps on it and adhered it to the kraft tag.  On separate papers, I stamped the milk and cookie from the adorable Perfect Pairs Planner Stamps, inked and colored them then fussy cut them out.  I popped them to the tag with foam tape.  I added more Totally Pink Trendy Twine to the holes of the tags and finished it all of with a bow of Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine.

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

Planner Friday - January

Hello!  Welcome to the first Planner Friday of 2017!  As it is the start of a new year I wanted to write a back to basics post for all the people who have a new planner and don't know where to begin when it comes to decorating their pages.

No matter what kind of planner you are using, Erin Condron's LifePlanner, Happy Planner, Travelers Notebook or a ring bound organiser like Filofax and Kikki K there are a few Annie's Paper Boutique essentials you will need.


I always start with adding a couple strips of washi tape to the top and bottom of my pages.  I then choose some coordinating Trendy Page Dots for an extra pop of colour!  I usually know how busy my week is going to be when I start planning it so I know where I can add a few stickers and leave myself enough space to write.  If you aren't sure then you could add decorative stickers after you have filled in your notes, reminders and to dos. 


Planning my week

Next I use my Check It Off stamps to print my check boxes.  If you haven't used stamps before my advice is to not overload the stamp with ink and don't press down too hard, you need to apply firm and even pressure to get the best image.  You might want to do a few practice stamps on some scrap paper before you print on your pages so you know which technique gives you a good, clean image.



Stamping

I have a few blank heading boxes on my inserts so I use the Title It set of stamps to label these sections.  This week I made them Shopping, Reminders, Thoughts and Finances but the set is so versatile I could use them for meal planning, brain dump, errands and lots more! 

There are a couple of stamp sets I use for my reminders and to dos each week, they are At Home and More At Home, between these two I almost have a stamp for everything I would need to put in my planner!  Bill paying, cleaning, cooking, planning, gardening and laundry are all covered.  If you are at school or have children at school like me then the other stamps I recommend are the School Days set, these have reminders for homework, picture day, library, clubs, concerts, tests, carpool, football, baseball etc, it really has a good collection of school related activities!

Finally for anything else that I don't have a stamp for I use my trusty pen!




My week so far

As a finishing touch I like to use a cute paper clip like this coffee cup one, I think they add a touch of fun to my pages!  You can find some lovely clips here, I was going to tell you which was my favourite but I can't decide! 

I hope this has inspired you to try decorating your own pages, if you would like some more ideas then check out these previous Planner Friday posts and don't forget to stop by the store and take a peek at all the supplies!

See you again next month!

Trendy Twine ~ You & Me Card

Hello all!  Beth from Beth's Beauties with you today. This month is all about Totally Red Trendy Twine. It was the perfect color for the card that I created.
The Totally Red Trendy Twine is more subtle on this card and adds texture and a pop of red on the black and white papers.  I used it on the & sign and around the black word panel.
I used three Peppermint Icicle Sequins in the top right corner.  The card is a 5x7 red base and all the other papers are from DCWV's Jet Black stack.

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