Strawberry Treat Bag

Happy Friday paper crafters

 It's Cristina from Crafting with Cristina and today I'm sharing another Piece of Twine Design Inspiration.

Use your twine to complete a color theme and tie a bag closed!!

My daughter is turning 3 in a few short weeks which means... I only have a few short weeks to get everything together for her Strawberry Shortcake themed Birthday Party. Naturally since I am of the crafty variety I have tasked myself with making items that could be purchased at the store (such as treat bags)


  • I Cut this little bag on my silhouette cameo at 12 inches wide out of some designer cardstock, and then added a small strip of cardstock across the front.
  • I Stamped a strawberry on some white cardstock and cut it with my 1.5 inch circle punch. I layered that on a piece of black I had punched with a scallop border punch
  • Some quick coloring with my prismacolor pencils and the main image is complete.
  • A length of  Strawberry Cupcake Timeless Twine  threaded through a "For you" Sentiment finishes the treat bag, and this project is cute enough for strawberry shortcake herself. 
I hope this project inspires you! Have a great day!

Twine Background...

Good Morning Twine Friends...Annette from My Clever Creations here with you today to show a little twine background. Most of my blog buddies call me the twine queen just because I like to use it in so many ways and one of my favorites is to use it as a background instead of designer paper.
I know you are looking at it like it took a long time well really it did not. What I do is cut a bunch of strips of twine and put some Martha Stewart all purpose GEL adhesive down and just start laying down the twine. Once it is all glued down put something solid on top so it dries flat. When dry trim the edges. I would say this took me maybe five minutes. Not long at all. 

I challenge you to try it and share you creations on Timeless Twine Facebook page. I want to know what you think about this technique after trying it. 
Kraft Brown Twine
Chocolate Chip Brown Twine

Thanks for stopping by today.. I hope I have inspired you to create a twine background..Until next time.....

You Are Handsome

Hello Twine-aholics!

It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, today to share with you a simple masculine card I made featuring  Olive and White Timeless Twine.

It seems that masculine cards are always the hardest for me to make. So when I find some great papers, I make a few to keep on hand.

Here is one that would work great for a Birthday or Father's Day.

Cardstock is from a My Minds Eye Boy stack (Sorry, I don't know the exact name)
Sentiment is from Pink By Design's "Bracketfull" set
Timeless Twine Olive Green/White

Twine adds just the perfect finishing touch and is perfect for both feminine and masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget link up your project for this months challenge.
You could win a full spool of Timeless Twine and a 6x6 Paper Pad.

Basket Weave Card

Hi Everybody!
Jenny from Crazy About Cricut here, and I'm excited to be sharing another design team project with you :O)  All my kids are in school or napping, so I actually have a couple of hours to play during the day!  So I decided to try a weaving technique using the best twine :)  Here are the details:

*Jaded Blossom - Feeling Fruity stamp set (sentiment)
*Preserves Cricut cartridge - strawberries
*Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge - basket
*My Mind's Eye, Stampin' Up! - patterned paper
*Recollections - brown cardstock

*To create the weaving on the basket, I first ran a strip of adhesive down.
*Then I took a few strands of Kraft twine at a time and created rows.
*Next I ran another strip of adhesive parallel to the other.
*I took a few strands of Chocolate Chip twine at a time, and weaved them through the Kraft twine going over, under, over, under, etc.

 *For the strawberries, I put adhesive on both sides of the cut and wrapped some Cherry Red twine around it.
*I used Olive Green twine for the "stems".

I hope you liked my project :O) Make sure you come back to check out more amazing twine inspired projects from the design team! And don't forget to check out the Timeless Twine August challenge HERE. TFL, and have a twine-tastic day!

Spooky Timeless Twine project

Hello Again!! Its Debbie with Bugjuiced and I have a couple Chilling projects for you!
Thank you for joining us here for another project with Timeless Twine!
Spooky times! 

I don't know about you all but I LOVE HALLOWEEN! I used the Black Coffee & white Timeless Twine for it and it was perfect! Grab you this Halloween Party pack before Halloween so you can make your spooky projects too!

Seems I didn't get as excited about it until i start scrapping! Its my favorite thing to make projects for. I got my new Cricut Artiste cartridge and tried my hand at the coffin and the pillow box. I really didn't have a clue how big to cut them and next time I will size it down. But at least you can see them!!

The pillow box I just got cut fit to page. The coffin is 7.5" which is pretty big but it would hold alot of treats and probably the right size for anyone i would want to give a nice Halloween treat too.

I don't remember what size I cut the skeleton because honestly I just messed with it in craft room to see about what size to actually make it cause of course I didn't use CCR to cut it! That would be a miracle in itself if I got that to happen.

The little spiders are from Jolee's sticker set and the tombs I just cut by hand and inked up and put a funny name on them. The Pillow box cuts are from Teresa Collins Chic-n-scary. First time using this cartridge. I ordered it last year before halloween but it didn't come until way after so this year I get to use it.

Hope you get some inspiration from this post and get spooky with it!

Little notebook with Twine!

Hey Paper Crafters

It's Cristina from Crafting with Cristina and today I just quickly wanted to share with you some Twine Inspiration!

Today I decided to use my timeless twine to make an adorable little notebook

I used my bind it all to create this notebook. The little note paper is actually a journaling card that I printed out ages ago.


I tied a twine bow and added a button and also outlined my pencil with some fun twine as well


I paper pieced the pencil in various pattern paper scraps for extra interest!

Some glossy accents, a doily and a scrap punched with a scallop border punch completes this project

I hope you enjoy it and inspires you to use twine in decorating your homemade notebooks :)

Have a great friday

Mini Notebooks

  Hi everyone! It's Kassidy from Inking It Up Crazy!  I am so excited to share a project with you today.
  I am so addicted to making these mini notebooks.  I alter them of coarse.  I have also seen tutorials on how to make them from scratch (search youtube for some great ones).  It is just easiest for me to pick them up at the dollar store and cover them with paper and cute embellishments.  These are so fun and easy to make.  It is a great way to use up those paper scraps and embellishments that you can't fit into your regular scrapbooking.  I love to top these notebooks off with a little twine tied onto the pen.  
  Hope you all enjoyed my project today.  See you all later :)
Supplies Used:
  • Mini Notebook and Pen Set (dollar store)
  • Paper Scraps
  • White Gel Pen
  • Stamps- Hero Arts, My Creative Time
  • Bling
  • Chipboard Flowers
  • Twine- Cherry Red (Timeless Twine)

Lil' Monster Frame

Hi, Debbie here from "Bugjuiced" showing a project I did with the "Happy Hauntings" cartridge and all my yummy twine colors. 

I love this cartridge! My favorite cartridges are Happy Hauntings, Pack Your bags, Campin critters just to name a few. Can't get enough of those! I made the frame on the Happy Hauntings cartridge but left off the outer layer that is a web. I cut this at 6.25" and I knew I wanted to use a pic of our grandkids trick or treating. I cut the little Monsters out from "Bump in the Night" on my imagine so I could fill the images with the colors I wanted. I used solid colors that were on the "Berries & Cream" cartridge.

I purchased some cute peachy keen stamps to use on the faces but didn't end up using them for this because i cut with my E2 and couldn't hide anything since I didn't use CCR or my gypsy. 

The monsters I believe were cut at 2.5" as well as the title "Monsters". I used several colors of twine that are listed below with links to the store. I actually used several together that matched my colors of my frame. I liked using them around the picture opening too! I love the way it turned out and the colors ended up perfect.

Use the links on the colors and visit the store and grab you some yumminess too. Lots of other goodies to pick from too! Thanks for stopping by to see my project and stay tuned for even more projects to come from the awesome DT and a great challenge coming up!
