Here’s a peek at the new release:





























Here’s a smidge about The Twinery:






“The Twinery’s twine is made from 100% cotton (and some of our twine is twisted with gorgeous metallic string!) and made in the USA. Whether you’re gift wrapping, crafting or tying up baked goods to give to a friend, our baker’s twine adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! Our baker’s twine comes in an assorted array of delicious colors and is uniquely twisted against a bright white hue, creating an eye-popping burst of color and a creative embellishment!   Our twine has lots of color which lends to a fun, candy-striped look.”




Today I will be featuring the two border dies.  I used the Decorative Corners Die set last week in THIS card.  I’ll be featuring the Pretty Petals Die set this Thursday.

In my first card I used the Top Dog Dies Alaina Lace Border Die and 


I definitely tend to gravitate towards solid twine because I generally use quite a bit of patterned paper.

Isn’t the new Alaina Lace Border gorgeous?  So pretty and intricate!

Next up is a card that uses the Top Dog Dies Laurel Lace Border Die and

The Laurel Lace Border Die is my favorite.  I love the pattern and the tiny botting along the top border.

The Twinery Peapod is my all time favorite green twine.  I love it teamed up with the Authentique Anchored collection.  Doesn’t it seem 80’s preppy?

That’s it for me!
