The Twinery/Echo Park Blog hop


We are so glad you could join the Twinery as they celebrate their one year anniversary all this week. If you came here by way of Danielle Flanders blog you are on the right track. If not, make sure you start at the beginning over at The Twinery's blog because there are terrific prizes for those who complete the hop by commenting on each blog.You'll have two days to enjoy this hop so relax and have fun!
The Twinery are giving away the Ultimate Sampler Pack


Be sure to hop to each of our amazing designers hops and check out the projects using bakers twine from the Twinery and the fabulously creative design papers from Echo Park.

I was lucky enough to team up with Echo Park for the party and used one of their original collections - A walk in the Park - its one of my all time favourite series of theirs.
I loved the coil pattern in the lazy days paper and simply imitated it with my carribean twine - coil over coil. i set it down and then just glued it where it crossed over so that some of it remained loose. Easy peasy!


 i placed some of their cute stickers along the bottom of my page and then ran "railings" of cappuccino twine down either side of the sentiment. It actually hides a multitude of sins along the edge of that strip as i freehand cut it and it strangely didnt come out all that straight. well not straight enough for this virgo anyway!
I'm so glad you stopped by! i hope i have inspired you to give bakers twine a try.Please make sure you leave a comment on my blog because there are terrific prizes for those who leave comments on each designers blog. The deadline for commenting is 1159pm est Friday August 19th. Prizes will be announced on Saturday August 20th. Your next stop on the hop is Sheri Twing's blog.
Good Luck and Happy First Anniversary to the Twinery!
