Editing on Monday am: I forgot that I am supposed to tell you a bit about myself--LOL! I am a married, full-time working mom of 2 teenagers (it pains me to say that!). My son is 15 and just got his learners permit and my daughter just turned 13. We have one dog, Charlie (girl) who is just adorable which gets her out of trouble a lot :) I started scrapbooking when my son was one and then started card making soon after when friends talked me into selling Stampin' Up! Being a demonstrator did not last too long since I was not good at being pushy. My blog began 2 1/2 years ago and I have been on the My Pink Stamper DT for about a 1 1/2 years. I was also on the Fantabulous Cricut Team for a a few terms too. I am beyond thrilled to be this amazing Trendy Twine Team!! Lesley is just fabulous and I can't wait to get started!!
Here's a project that I sent in to try out. I used the Spring Cottage Cartridge to make the basket and berries.
- Krazy For Kraft Trendy Twine
- Twisted Lime Trendy Twine
- Cricut Spring Cottage Cartridge
- Basket cut at 9 1/2 inches (I think)
- Berries cut at 3 1/2 inches
- White Signo Pen
- Stick on gem
I had to get this Cricut Cartridge just because of the basket and berries--LOL! And this project just needed twine to go on it too :) I glued the Krazy for Kraft Twine around the basket and handles. The berries hold one or two pieces of candy and then you close it with the twine. I used the white pen to do some faux stitching on the berry leaves.
