ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Pretty In Pink

WELCOME to TRENDY TWINE'S Pretty in Pink Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Sukie's blog then you are in the right place. If you just started and want to hop along from the beginning please start HERE

It's a NEW COLOR release party!
So here they are - Pink Licorice and Pink Midnight.
Aren't they fantastic? And they are available this weekend only at a very special introductory price.
These Spools are only $16.50 for the pair!

And the mini packs are available for $3.95 this weekend - After Sunday they will be available at their regular price. So run over to the store HERE and BUY yours NOW! Don't worry - I'll wait but come back because you haven't seen my project yet!!!

So now that you stopped by the store and purchased your own Trendy Twine here's a fun project you can make using these colors or any of the over 40 twines we have.

I created a kleenex box cover. This is a large kleenex box measuring 3 1/2"H x 4 3/4"D x 9"W. Isn't it super cute!?! Well, My girls think its fabulous and that's good enough for me.
Want to make one?

To make this project you will need to cut out 4 side pieces. 2- 3 1/2"H x 5 1/4"W and 2- 3 1/2"H x 9 1/2"W. After measuring and cutting these pieces you can dry emboss them and then score on 1 side only at a 1/2". This will create a tab for you to connect these pieces together to form the boxes foundation. The lid of the box measures 6 3/4"D x 11"W - Score at 1" on all sides and cut one side of each corner to create a tab so it can be folded to create the box top. Once you've scored the sides you can then cut a center opening that measures 2" x 6 3/4"- this should cover the original opening of most kleenex boxes. Cut this out with a Die cutting machine, with a spellbinder or trace the opening and cut out by hand. Once the side pieces have been assembled you can adhere them to the inside of the lid and then embellish the box with whatever you want. 

I used the Pink Licorice twine and embossed the sides with a Zebra embossing folder to match the pink paper and silk flower. What do you think? Easy right?
If you decide to make one please share your creation with me on my Facebook page HERE.

Winter wishes ...

Hello Friends! Here again today with another fun project for the Trendy Twine blog. This month we are featuring TT's newest color Watermelon Taffy and from the buzz around the crafting world and Facebook it's a FAVORITE!!!

Today I created for you a very simple yet cute favor box. The snowflake paper was an amazing find at Dollar tree and I new it would be a perfect match to this twine. You can create this for any occasion, Mine happens to be for a Mommy to be and I used My Creative Times All around Everything stamp set for the sentiment "Welcome Sweet Baby".

Dollar Tree Snowflake tissue paper
Pink Ombre wire edge ribbon
My Creative Time - All around Everything stamp and Stitched circle die
Buttons and a 3"x3" favor box

I love how this project turned out and I think the Mommy to be will love it too.

I'm excited to announce that I have been asked by Lesley at Trendy Twine and Annie's Paper Boutique to stay on the Design Team for another term. I'm thrilled and beyond excited to be a part of this team and to share my creativity with all of you using Trendy Twine.
