The Twinery and My Little Shoebox Blog Hop



Hello! Welcome to The Twinery and My Little Shoebox blog hop event.  All week, designers from both teams will be showcasing these products together.  I just know you will be inspired by all the wonderful things everyone came up with to share with you.

You should have come here from My Little Shoebox blog.  If not, and you want to start at the beginning, head on over to The Twinery blog!

Here are a few cards I made to share today.   LOVE:  The first card was created by folding the round scalloped Lovely Day-Flower Ring Circle paper in half and then cutting it in half the other way and trimming the side.  I used several flower stickers from Lovely Day to add along the top of the card and then I added the large flower (that I made by stacking two Happy Go Lucky 3D Roll Up flowers).  Each of the smaller flowers has a small twine circle layer in the center (Pink Sorbet, Buttercreme).   I added some Buttercreme yellow inside the larger flower.  The labels (Lovely Day Sticker sheet, and Lovely Day New Story) are stacked up to create the background for the sentiment.  I inked all the edges of the card with Distress ink.
 

HI:  The next card uses more stickers from Lovely Day. I layered the stickers over the patterned paper (Lovely Day: Let the Sun Shine) and ran some Charcoal and Pink Sorbet baker's twine up and over the layer to "hang" the birdcages.   I also used some Honeydew baker's twine to add a bow under the sentiment stickers (Lovely Day Cardstock sticker). I cut some Happy Go Lucky: All A Bloom paper to add some fun to the bottom of the card.  To complete the card, rounded the top corner and added some colorful rhinestones to the centers of the little flowers.

ALL You NEED IS LOVE:  Finally the last card I made uses some Happy Go Lucky: Ride Along paper.   I cut the adorable little couple from Happy Go Lucky: Out and About paper.  I punched the heart form the coordinating red paper (Lovely Day: Raspberry).  I popped up the cloud stickers (Lovely Day Stickers) and then created grass by wrapping the Honeydew baker's twine over the green coordinating paper (Happy Go Lucky:Cricket).  I stapled a few of the edges to keep them all in line:
 
Hope you enjoyed these cards. I LOVED playing with My Little Shoebox paper this week.  I especially love that they include coordinating solid sheets of paper for their collections!  What fun designs and what a great match for The Twinery baker's twine!
