Spooky Tags and Twine

Hi everyone!  I'm here with a project for the Spooky Tags and Twine Challenge that just started over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  We are showcasing the fabulous Trick or Treat Trendy Twine this month.

Here are the challenge requirements:
Halloween image (flair, stamp, sticker, die cut, or brad)
**If you do not have Trendy Twine, use hemp, jute, 
embroidery thread, or yarn only
(no other brands of bakers twine)**
Deadline is 11:59 p.m. central time, Friday, October 25th. 
Project must be new for the challenge.
No back linking.
Only one entry, please.
Must include all items for the challenge.
Projects not qualified will be unlinked.
(including wrong twine)

To be honest, I have trouble with tags.  I've heard someone say to treat it like a mini card, so that's what I tried to do with this one.  And I think I really do like how it turned out :)

The Trick or Treat Twine makes a great topper for the tag and I also added it to the bottom by wrapping it around and tying the bow in front.  I did not have to tape it down in the back this way.

The stamps are from Unity and I cut out the feet and pop dotted them on.  I used some Pro Markers to color, some Doodlebug pearls and a Martha Stewart edge punch on the bottom.

Be sure to head over to Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine to see the other design team's projects.  They made some amazing tags!!  And while you are there, be sure to enter our challenge this month.  We really do love to see all the projects you make.

Last, but not least--head over to Annie's Paper Boutique to see all the fun Halloween Twines available.  You can also find tags and boxes for all your Halloween treat needs :)

Have a fabulous day!

Totally Limeade Trendy Twine Hop

Hi everyone!  It's a new Trendy Twine release today--Totally Limeade and Totally Grape!!  And we are celebrating with a blog hop showcasing Totally Limeade.  There are some prizes to be won if you stop and comment along the way :)

If you just came from Kate, you are right on track.  But if not, please start at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine so you don't miss a thing.

I have a picture frame to show you today.  It is cut from the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge.

The frame is cut at 8 inches.  It stands up pretty well and even the back stand is cut from cardstock.  I was thinking I would need to double up that cut, but didn't take the time.

I originally thought I would cover the entire front in the fabulous Totally Limeade Twine, but then thought that would be a bit much.

I tend to get glue all over and that doesn't look very well on the black.  When I decided to put some star sequins at the places the twine met, I added some to the spots that had some extra glue too.  This size frame is holding a normal picture that was printed from my camera.  I just glued the back on on the side and bottom.

Your next stop is Jessica.  Now, be sure to follow along and comment on all the blogs in the hop.  There are three prizes to be won:

Aren't these some great prizes?!  Be sure to leave all your comments before 11:59pm Friday, October 4th!!

Have a great day!
