Bella Creationz Timeless Twine makes creating fun

Hi my creative friends .. I took some time playing with timeless twine from Bella Creationz.
I wasn't sure about what the finished theme would be but love what it turned out to be.
My grand daughter would love to hang this from her bedroom door. "girls only" is the perfect sentiment and it's always a Happy Day when friends spend time together.

Starting with twine, some medium length sticks and Beacon 3-in-1 glue and your all set to create.
Glue the cross portion of the sticks and let harden.
Now tie a knot around the centre cross section.

Now the fun part. Working always to the right take the twine over the 1st post, around and down under and up ... head now to the next post.. over around down under and up. 

Continue around and around until the 4 sides of posts are all full.

Now before you cut the twine tie a knot and do it again around the last post. Leave an estimated length to make the tie or loop for adhering to either a door knob or maybe you would like it to be a wall hanger which need twine to tie it up also. 
Here is the finished background piece.

To decorate this piece I started with a fun Scrapbook Stamp Society digital image from Sherri Baldy which I copic coloured. Then using the Bella Creationz Stamp set stamped the Happy Day.Using the Kreaxions circle cutter I sized the image. I stamped and copic coloured the pennants. 
Using a Bella Creationz doily as a background base I layered all the pieces together.
I added the Girls Only sentiment and the cute fun coloured sequins were the perfect finishing touch.

Other: digital image Scrapbook Stamp Society with Sherri Baldy

Off the Rails Scrapbooking and a fun technique to try


Welcome to Off the Rails Scrapbooking .. super excited to be mixing a fun technique and the sketch. (above)
So using the sketch I wanted to try something different!
If you own a cricut or silhouette/Cameo etc and own the pens/markers I challenge you to create starting with the use of these pens/markers and your machine.
If you don't own those listed in #1 then I challenge you to grab some crayons, pens, markers of any kind to do some part of your card following the sketch even if it's only the sentiment.

I used my Cricut and designed it following the sketch. Photo shows first attempt and decided to do it again and alternated blue and yellow for a pop of colour. (photo below)

To this I added cricut cut stars and super fun twine borders.
Also made this an easel card base so needed to work on the border section which I stamped the sentiment in centre, added a border with Bella Creationz Timeless twine and then glued on some shiny sequin stars to finish it off.

Here is the view to see the easel shape of the card.  Also I am adding the quick instruction sheets for you to follow.

Supply List:
Paper: prebought card base and envolope
Cardstock: cut 5x7" front
Cut files: Cricut
Markers: Cricut markers
Twine: Bella Creationz Timeless Twine
Sequins: Bella Creationz
Stamp: Bella Creationz
Ink: Color Box

Thanks for stopping by.. sure hope to see you again soon.

Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kit.... what an amazing GDT term with a great kit

Hi everyone... I am back again as Guest Designer for my last post using the  Boys Rule Scrapbooking Kits. I really enjoyed my time here and working with fabulous kits makes crafting so much fun and easier for sure. Be sure to check out their bi-monthly kits for yourself... you'll be pleasantly surprized.
Thanks to all for my fabulous time spent here.

My last layout using the amazing Boys Rule Kit for March and April is my grandson 
playing in the hammock at the cottage.. a favourite spot the whole family loved spending time together for many, many years before we sold it. They will cherish these pages in their future to preserve the cottage memories of their lives.

On this background I started with paint splatter using many colours to pull out the paper colours.
I then used stenciled circles to finish it off.

This section has many layers, many die cut cardstock accents ... all inked on the edges ..
along with multi wrapping with Bella Creationz Timeless Twine and a tied bow.

This photo shows the small circular stickers postioned amongst the stenciled circles.


Super alpha for the title and fun foam popped accent.


Project Life is such a big new style of scrapping today. I only did a single page but it will be awesome in the albums along with more card layouts to share my husbands car with family.
It's a guy thing .. they all love going for a ride and touring with the car.
In the details of the page I share the story about the special car license plates and what we had to do to be able to use them on this special car.

Close ups of the 4 PL panels on the page.

So many extra but perfect stickers and accents to add to my Project Life page.

Sure hope you enjoyed my mix of fabulous projects made for the fabulous kit.
Be sure to visit often to see what kit is up next month.
