Chic Tags | Twinery Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the Chic Tags and Twinery blog hop!  Chic Tags and The Twinery have partnered together to showcase their amazing products, and show you how well their products compliment each other. There's also a fun giveaway so make sure you leave a comment on each blog post!
 
You should have arrived here from Rebecca's blog; there are 10 stops in total. As you stop by each blog, we know you will be in awe of all the beautiful projects. The Chic Tags Creative Team was inspired by the beautiful Twinery Twine they received, and we can't wait to share with you!
 
I made my layout using the pretty Cloud 9 collection  along with the beautiful Marigold, Caribbean and Strawberry twines to fill in my cut out circles.
For the twine circles, I traced the circle on a scrap piece of cardstock, then covered the whole circle with dry adhesive. Next, I cut small pieces of twine, then added them piece by piece until the whole circle was covered.
 
After the circle was completely covered with twine, I adhered the twine covered cardstock to the back of my layout so the twine shows through the cut out.
 
I love the texture the twine adds, and how perfectly it matches with the Cloud 9 collection!!!
 
From here, the next stop on the hop is Stacey's blog. And don't forget, be sure to check out the Chic Tags blog tomorrow for day 2 of the blog hop!

Oh my word. I saw your layout on Facebook and I was like, "Oh my gosh, that is the best thing she's ever done!" (which is saying something 'cause I'm always impressed by you) Then I come here and read how you did it and I had not even noticed that the solid part was twine. As I read it, I said out loud, "No you did not." I just can't even imagine being that creative!! You are the bomb dot com. This is AMAZE-BALLS!!!
