It's Day Two of the blog swap between Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker and The Twinery! You can find The Twinery blog HERE. We have the other half of our Diva's up here on our blog today. So are you ready for some more fun?! And don't forget about the giveaways! See at the bottom of this post!
Also, be sure to visit the Diva's blogs for additional pictures and projects that may not be posted here!
First up is Deana using the Noah collection for a sports themed layout about a girl! She used the Maraschino twine from The Twinery to create her banner out of the pants pockets!!
Next up is Laurel with a girly girl layout using the Audrey collection. All the little details with the twine are wonderful (no pun intended, considering the title of her layout!) She used the Denim color of The Twinery twine on this layout. It matches perfectly!
And here is my (Katrina) layout using the Messages collection and the Flax color from The Twinery. I loved the fact that the brown was a little lighter in color and gave a softer look and feel to the layout.
Here is a close-up of just one of the ways you can incorporate twine into ANY
And now we have Sarah with a wonderful use of the Exit Here collection and she has some tips for you!
I used the Exit Here papers to create the banner at the top of the layout. I cut 3/4 inch strips from different papers and then trimmed them to various lengths. I cut triangles out of the bottom of some of the banner pieces and on some used my scallop border punch. I used a strong to adhere the twine. For the twine above my title I first put the liquid adhesive on the paper in the design I wanted and then adhered the twine directly over it. It helps to use a liquid adhesive with a thin tipped applicator and one that dries clear to make the design neat.
Next up is Melissa with three cards using the Audrey collection along with The Twinery baker's twine. Let's hear what she said about them....
I used the Audrey line for all three cards. I just adore this line. I rarely make cards but with Audrey's die cut punch-outs and cut-ups made it so easy to create these cards. I used both of my favorite color twines, Maraschino and Lemondrop, from The Twinery to add special touches on my cards.
And last, but not least we have Marielle who created two projects for us. An adorable card out of Exit Here and then a layout using Messages.
I wrote the word LOVE on the sign with pencil , then added a bit of glue and adhered the Maraschino twine to spell out the word. I also used some twine for the "ropes" on the hot air balloon.
We want to thank The Twinery for doing this fun cross promotion/blog swap. Our designers fell IN LOVE with The Twinery twine and I have been spying it on additional projects coming to my inbox! So, I think you are going to be seeing it a lot.
