Twine Love Recipe Swap at the Catered Crop

I’m so excited about the current Catered Crop recipe swap.  It’s TWINE!  You know how I love twine. 

I was tossing around ideas in my head for my card when I found out that I needed a card for a baby shower.    That cinched it.  I immediately knew what I wanted to do.     Rarely does a card end up so similar to the idea that I had.  Yeah! 



2013-04-03 CC Baby card WM


I had a spare piece of white CS that I covered with Scor-tape and then wrapped with twine.   I adhered it to the back of the main panel with the letters die cut out.  The entire piece is mounted to the card base using dimensional dots (Zots).    Of course I threw in some extra texture using my favorite embossing folders and adding stars cut from some spare Starbucks coffee sleeves. 


Here is some additional twine love inspiration that Linda put together for you.   Click on the photo to go directly to the Catered Crop Twine Love inspiration board on Pinterest.



I hope that this has inspired you to join the Twine Love recipe swap at the Catered Crop.  Stop by the Catered Crop blog to link up your project.

So many great textures - I had to laugh because my cards seldom turn out how I had "planned". Thank you for joining me in my Amusing Challenge Anything Goes on Mar 31...I'm sorry it's taken me so long to pop over for a visit and I'm so glad I finally made it! :)

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
