The Twinery and Nikki Sivils {Product Showcase}

Hello there!  Welcome to Day 2 of The Twinery and Nikki Sivils product showcase!  If you missed the first day....be sure to check it out. The projects are fantastic and I am so honored to be on a design team with these ladies.

For today's hop, start at The Twinery Blog for a list of blogs to visit.  Be sure to comment on all the blogs for your chance to win the Colorful Sampler pack from The Twinery !


Here are my projects.  I used the Nikki Sivils collection Messages on all of them.
The first two are cards:

For my first card, I went with a round card design and decided to highlight the circle shape with some Charcoal twine.  I wanted it to feel like a phone cord (remember those?!) so I gave it some extra loops on the right.  I added a tiny bit of  Maraschino twine on the mini clothespin that holds the HI message.  The phone was cut from one of the pieces of designer paper.  I added the little metal heart to the center of the phone.

My next card uses the same collection but I focused on the typewriter on this one:
I used some Buttercreme and Stone bakers twine to accent this card.  I added lots of layers of the beautiful patterns in the collection and then cut out the thank you section to add on top of the typewriter.

Finally, I have a little notebook I created with this collection:  Here is the front.  I used some Stone Baker's twine to wind around the binder ring. (Note: when doing this, make sure to only wind about half of the ring so that the book will still open!) And I used some Charcoal twine to wind around the borders:

Here is the book when opened.  The heart is on the inside page.. I used some Stone twine to wind around the arrow inside the heart and some Charcoal twine to accent the pages again:

Here are the next two pages---I added a bunch of ivory cardstock sheets inside for notes:

Here is the last page of the note pad:

I hope you enjoyed these projects. I certainly had fun making them!

I LOVE these two cards! The telephone and typewriter are just great! Yes, I do remember the phone cord! What a thing our kids aren't experiencing now, like ducking under your older sister's phone cord that's stretched across the kitchen as she talks! :-D
