The Twinery and Bella Blvd Project Showcase and Giveaway!


Hello! Welcome to the final day of the The Twinery & Bella Blvd Project Showcase that has been taking place all week at The Twinery blog and the Bella Blvd Blog.  Each day designers from each team have been showing their projects created with both products and the results are amazing. 

Be sure to check over at the two company blogs to see all the designers' projects from each day!

Here is my project:
I created a little gift using a flower pot, some dowels and some chipboard to create a notepad:
 
I wrapped each dowel in baker's twine - Blossom and Shore-- and then attached the Bella Blvd chipboard elements (Sophisticates- Stars & Hearts) to the top. I added some more twine embellishing to the tops using Pink Sorbet and Shore.  I finished the heart dowel with the little Bella sweet Heart flag (Flag-Girl) :)

Here is the finished gift:

 

And here is a close up of the notepad.  I think this is a gift anyone can use.  I always keep a notepad in my purse to jot things down and I keep one by the computer for passwords, etc.  I designed this notepad for that purpose so I added the word "Remember" to the front of it.  The Bella Blvd paper is from Plastino-Bermudas and the label and stickers are from Plastino-Label Additions.  I added a little Bella Blvd button (Aqua flower) in the center, threaded with some Pink Sorbet baker's twine.  I used the Pink Sorbet to wrap around the clip as well:

 

Next, I just wanted to share this project that was on the SRM blog this week because it uses both Bella Blvd and The Twinery products.   I created a little photo cube using Bella Blvd. chipboard (Sophisticates- Stars & Hearts) and patterned paper (Plastino):

 

I used some Honeydew baker's twine to cover up the place where I cut the chipboard flower in order to attach the picture of my daughter.  I really don't think I make any projects anymore without at least a touch of twine. Sigh!
