I hope you all support Stacy and Timeless Twine as I believe in supporting women business owners and small businesses in general. I once was a business owner and I know alot of my business was based on great customer service and women who also referred friends to me as well. We stayed united in the cause! Here is stacy's store "BellaCreationz" where you can order the wonderful twine.
Stacy sent me three beautiful colors to work with. Her new Strawberry cupcake, Aqua Delight and Strawberry Truffle.
I wanted to do something "outside the box" with the twine. I love bows and using twine on my cards but I took this as a challenge to utilize it in other ways. My first project (Yes there are 3 total so please keep reading!) is a card. I used a SVG file from SVGCuts (Hula Girl) and then used the strawberry Truffle to wrap around the card to make it look like music paper sorta and placed the music notes on there.
I then glued the twine under a band that you cannot see under the little guitar to make a skirt with it. I made my own sentiment and used coordinating paper. The paper I used was My Minds eye 6x6 Paper stack "Market Street" from the lost and found collections.

NOW on to the second project. I decided on a 12 x 12 layout. I already had in mind what I was going to do so this one played out pretty much like I had planned it. I just wish I knew how to take better pictures of 12 x 12 layouts! The most difficult part of scrapping to me seems to be the photography! Its hard to get the whole thing in the picture, then it becomes far away and you don't get the same effect of the project. The twine I used for this was again the Strawberry truffle on the lion. And then I used the strawberry cupcake for the lamb/sheep. The SVG files for this was from Treasureboxdesigns. The paper is from a cricut pattern cartridge.
But here goes......hopefully it will look good to you. The picture really doesn't do it justice.

The shade on this lamb pic is a bit off, paper is actually like on the lion. The lighting wasn't so good when I took it! The lamb had the strawberry Cupcake twine on it. I love this stuff! My next investment is in a light box!! :)
Last project is another card. I really thought hard about this and actually revamped a SVG file for this one. I didn't use some parts, added some parts and then completely turned the bears around to get the effect that this was the back of a car. I also took some chipboard and made a little license plate! I used my Bonash adhesive and foils to achieve the metal look around the license plate and made some little cans too.
The twine I used for this was "Aqua Delight" Oh how I love thee......
I used Aqua Delight, Strawberry truffle and Strawberry cupcake around the card....kind of like the grand finale on a fireworks display I wanted to have a small bit of all the colors on this card. Since I used a cardstock that had the aqua color in it I thought it went really well with this twine. I used kraft cardstock for the bears, the paper is printed from a cricut pattern cartridge. The aqua paper is from DCWV brights paper pad.

(AGAIN! shading is off on these last two pics because I took them in the evening!)
Well I hope you enjoy these projects and get some inspiration on how to use your twine to its fullest~!
