Baker's Twine Blog Hop

Hi!

Well, this blog hop snuck up on me very quickly and quietly!  Funny how some months are like that...   A small but talented group of friends are hosting a blog hop today to showcase one of our fabulous newish products  -Baker's Twine.  The blog before mine on the hop was Kathryn Ruddick's, but you can stop and start wherever you'd like.  What a lovely way to spend a wintry, rainy Saturday morning.

If you haven't had a chance to play with our Baker's Twine you seriously need to get some.  It is so cheap and there are dozens of ways you can use it on your projects.  I have made 2 mini albums using twine as a feature on both.


The first album is made using the Flirtatious DSP.  It's unfinished for now, and is for my daughter.  We've been having lots of "mummy/daughter" dates lately and this records some of them. We playing on my iPhone and taking 'selfies' while we're out.  I have mostly used the Baker's Twine in a single strand in this album as I wanted a light, soft look to compliment the pretty papers.


A great way to use up some smaller pieces of Baker's Twine is to tie knots or bows around other ribbons, like I have in the photos above and below.


The second album features the Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine.  I mostly used it in three strands throughout this album as I felt it suited the darker, more distressed look of this album.


This album is also unfinished, as I haven't even decided what to do with it!  I think it may end up being an album of my husband and I.


There was a lot going on on this page, so I used the Baker's Twine in a single strand.  I used a couple of scraps of the Twine to tie on the tags.


Here I've just used a triple strand as a bow feature on the side of the die cut window.  I've only adhered the top of the panel to the page so I can slip a photo in underneath when I decide which photo to use.


I thought I"d shake it up a bit with the page below and do a triple strand with a single bow.  Not sure if I like it as much as the triple bow but it may grow on me! Again, only the top is adhered so I can slip a photo in later.



Well, that's it for me, now you're off to see the wonderful creations of Ros Davidson.

Bye for now,

Tina
