March Challenge Winner!

We had some fantastic entries for the challenge.  Did you take a look at them?  Very super fabulous!  Thank you all so much for joining us this month.

Now to announce our winner... Candi with Chaos and Crafts made a sweet hat for St. Pat's Day.  The really awesome thing about her entry (not only is it gorgeous) is that this is her  first time to participate in a challenge.  How neat is that!   

And then we decided to do an honorable mention.  Scrappin Dhilly did a layout in honor of St. Pat's Day and it turned out soooo pretty.

Be sure to take a peek at these and the other entries for some twine inspiration.  You can never have enough.... inspiration or twine!

So ladies, email me at Annies_paper_boutique@yahoo.com and we can discusss your winnings :)

PS:  Don't forget we are having a sale this weekend at AnniesPaperBoutique.com.  Spools are on sale for $7.99 and use code SAVES5TODAY to get $5 off any $25 purchase (before shipping or tax).

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Twine banners

Twine always lends a helping hand to any project! :) Here I've used twine from Trendy Twine's Original Mini Pack of colors. I cut a Pink Paislee - London Market die cut in half and punched holes on the two ends to hang a little paper heart banner with the "Strawberry Cupcake" twine.
I really like how the kraft paper looks with the fun colors! The pink and white twine shows up nicely on the kraft. Twine can be used for so many things, but hanging things with the twine is one of my favorite ways to use it! You can punch any shape from patterned paper, then use a small hole punch to create a hole for hanging. String them on the twine, and you have a cute banner embellishment for any card or layout!

 4 You Friend card supplies:
Stamps: Mat Stack 2 and Mat Stack 5 by Papertrey Ink
Ink: True Black by Papertrey Ink
Paper: Raspberry Fizz Pattern Pack by Papertrey Ink, Aqua Mist Pattern Pack by Papertrey Ink, kraft cardstock by Papertrey Ink, teal paper by Heidi Swapp
Dies: border punch by Fiskars
Other: twine by Trendy Twine, die cuts by London Market Ephemera by Pink Paislee, number - London Market Jumbo Numbers by Pink Paislee.

Thank you very much for having me as a guest this month!

Cards With Twine by Danielle Flanders

Hi there! This is Danielle Flanders here today on the Trendy Twine blog with a couple of quick and easy things you can do with your twine! There are so many different ways you can create with layers in your scrapbooking and card making, and twine is a simple way to add another layer of interest without a lot of bulk. Today I'm using the Original 6 Mini Pack of twine.

On my first card, the first thing I did to create it was to adhere two die cuts from London Market Ephemera (post card and flowers) by Pink Paislee. Next, I stamped the postage stamp with red ink onto pink patterned paper from the London Market 6x6 Paper Pack and cut it out. I adhered it, then stamped the black postage mark over the top. The black frame is another Ephemera piece also that I folded in half over the top of the card! (It was actually placed there to cover up a stamping mistake!)
I wrapped the Strawberry Cupcake twine around the card top before adhering to the card base and used the twine to tie on a Wooden Spool Button by Pink Paislee. You can use twine for SO many things! To tie on buttons, wrap around cards, make mini banners with and so much more.
On the second card, the Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine is used here to create butterfly antennas - just wrapped it around the butterfly and tied, leaving two tails for the antennas.
I also stitched around the die cut with Twisted Lime twine to add dimension and interest to a plain 'old die cut. :) (Oops, I see that one antennae is falling down in my pic.)

Would you like to win an Original 6 Mini Pack of twine? Just hop over to the Trendy Twine Facebook page and tell them I sent you!
