My Little Shoebox and Twinery Blog Hop


Hi there and welcome to the My Little Shoebox and The Twinery blog hop!!! We've teamed up this week to bring you lots of inspiration and prizes!

Here's my share for the hop....

Curly Stytle


In this page I combined the Happy go lucky papers with a few Twinery twines. I used the twines as a stitching accent, I wrapped my chipboard letters for the title with colorful twine and I also wrapped the twine around my punched scallop flower to create more dimension and texture for it.



Supplies Used:

Cardstock- WorldWin
Pattern papers-(Life is sweet, 11860; Cricket and lagoon, 11858; Ride Along, 11854; Happy Go Lucky collection kit, 11850) Happy go lucky collection
Letter stickers- Glitter Alphabet sticker, Black Diamond, 10113
Chipboard letters- Maya Road
Flowers- Accent Creative Designs
Rhinestone- Doodlebug Design Inc.
Twine- Denim, Carribean, Mandarin, Lilac, Pink Sorbet, Lemondrop, Cappucino- Twinery
Flower punch- Creative Memories
Black pen- Creative Memories
Adhesives- Glue Arts

Holy cow! I am really loving this idea!! i can't tell you how many mismatched chipboard alpha's I have and this is a great way to coordinate then....so cute and a lot less messy than painting them....of course I could always end up tangled, and probably would but this is just too cute not to try!!!
