{Imaginisce is Wrapping with the Twinery...with giveaways!!}

Hello and welcome to The Twinery and Imaginisce Blog Hop!!

If you're just starting here and would like to hop along with us today, hop on over and start at The Twinery Blog, there are some great giveaways!!

For my project I made this fun Summer layout using The Twinery's Mandarin twine and paper and embellishments from Imaginisce.
For the cute sun, I punched a circle from cardstock, covered it with adhesive, then starting from the middle, wrapped the twine following the circle shape. When I got to the outside of the circle, I cut the twine and added a dot of glue to secure it.

 I also tried a new technique for the first time...I loved the color of the Mandarin twine, but it didn't quite match the color of the paper I wanted to use for the rays of the sun. I wanted a lighter orange color, so I thought why not try some bleach??  I let the twine sit for a few minutes in small cup of bleach and it lightened to just the perfect color!! Woo-hoo!!

Both Imaginisce and The Twinery will be having a giveaway this week,
The Twinery Giveaway
"I Dream in Twine" Packages (retail $32)
to 3 lucky winners!

and Imaginisce is giving away a "Makin' Waves" collection pack (retail $37) to 3 lucky winners!

In order to be entered to win a prize:
  • you MUST comment on each participating blog on the hop throughout the week
  • Deadline to comment is Midnight EDT, Sunday, April 22nd
  • Winners will be announced Monday, April 23rd on each company's blog.
Now hop on over to Tiffany's DeGough's blog to see what she has created.
As always, thanks for stopping by!!

Mary Ann, your scrapbook page is simply adorable. How clever to bleach the twine to match your paper. Will have to remember that. Sure hope I win some of The Twinery Twine so I can try this. Or I'd also be happy if I won Imaginisce Makin' Waves paper collection. Thanks for a fun Blog Hop!
