Hello everyone and welcome to the fifth and final day of our fabulous blog swap with our friends over at The Twinery! I guess it's true what they say, all good things must come to an end. We are sad to see this week end. But hey ... before it does, I have a couple more projects to share with you from the Biker Chicks, prizes to give away (later today) ... and next week I'll be back with more inspiration from our wonderful Head of the Class, Get Your Game On, and Hello Fall! Cycling Teams!
So I promise ... the fun never ends here on the LYB blog!
Let's get to the projects!
The colorful bundle of twine in the assortment pack had me at hello! The colors are so fun and playful and just the right shades of color. For my “I Love Fall” layout, I wanted to play off the Fresh Verse Cardstock die cut that says “piles of smiles” and literally piled a bunch of snapshots in the middle of the page.
From there, I started adding pops of color in clusters by layering several types of embellishments from the collection, then kicked it up a notch with the addition of the twine. I love that the twine is a playful twist of light and dark, as the white is twisted with a color. It keeps the embellishment light and not too dense for the eye. Love that.
For the next cluster, I layered Fresh Verse die cuts, a journaling tag, flowers from the layered flowers pack and a chipboard button from the Fabric Pieces. Before adhering the button, I pulled off the foam dimensional tape and strung two layers of twine through the eyelets.
Lastly, I wanted a bold punch of color in the center of the layout to draw the eye to the photos first. I just added several loops of twine to the felt flower, near the felt leaves to resemble another leaf on the flower. Such an easy addition that helps add more visual weight to the flower embellishment.
I want to give a HUGE thanks to The Twinery for the generous supply of twine that was sent for our team to complete these projects this week!

Naughty or Nice Page
Just a funny page of my daughter hamming it up for the camera. It reminded me of how she is always thinking about what is going to be on her list for Santa and how hard she tries to "make it happen." Adding pop dots to the cardstock stickers is a great way to give them dimension and accent the page. I cannot help but tuck a decorative edged cardstock piece on all of my pages and the patterns on the Wonder & Wishes pices are lovely.
