Guest Designer: Ann Marie from Yours TruLee

Hello Trendy Twiners! My name is Ann Marie from Yours TruLee and I am so excited and honored that Lesley Ann  has asked me to be a guest designer today.  Trendy Twine was my very first twine and it has been my one and only twine that I have used from the beginning of my crafting days. I love how versatile it is and I am constantly using her twine for so many projects around the house! It is very rare to find a crafty project of mine that does not include her twine! The project I have today is no exception!

I created this fun Happy Birthday mini album with this post in mind!

On the cover I used Lemon TartTicked with Teal and this months featured twine Ticked Pink.

On the inside cover I created two tags to be used as photo matts and then tied some seam binding with the Lemon Tart Twine.

Through out the album I continued finding different ways to add the beautiful Trendy Twine 

Most of the pages in the album interact.  This is an example of the flip page, and the one with the cupcake are half pages that have tags inside as well.  The tags are finished off with seam binding and Lemon Tart Trendy Twine. 

Here I created a "pom pom" on top of one of the gift embellishments.  I used Tickled with Teal, Tickled Pink and Lemon tart.  Tied them all together and then unraveled them and fluffed them to create a pom pom. 

This is the last page and I LOVE how this came out.  I created a "closure" for this mini photo mat by using two buttons threaded with Lemon Tart twine.  I then wrapped the twine around the buttons for closure and tied a clear fragment charm that had paper from the collection glued to it. The back of the album has another pocket with two tags which also include seam binding and the Lemon Tart Twine. 

I love how this album came out and how bright and colorful it is! 

Make sure you check out Trendy Twines store and get this months featured Twine, Ticked Pink, on sale! 

I hope you all have a great day and I will see you tomorrow!!! 

Thank you again Lesley for letting me be part of your blog! 

Yours TruLee, 
Ann Marie
