Bella Creationz Timeless Twine Projects

HI friends. Today at Bella Creationz I am sharing many layout pages that I used Timeless Twine
accents on. There are so many easy ways to use twine on your projects.
Some times it's a simple tied bow, attaching an accents or winding it around things and
finishing with a bow. Just remember that when twine comes in so many colours
it's so easy to match up to all our projects.

On my first page above I did multi wraps around the page with a tied off bow. Also 
added twine to the tag accent.

On my 2nd page I tied twine to tag, freely looped it behind the lacey title, circle looped
it beneath the photo and more twine wrapped around the lower slanted border with tied bow.

On my 3rd page I wrapped around the matt for the photo and finished with a bow.

On my 4th page I glued around the oval title piece and double tied a bow through a tag.

I was working with Authentique Cozy collection and this blue and red twine combo was perfect
match for the paper line. There was just enough blue and red from the paper along with the fabulous
mix of brown to create a stunning colour combo.

Be sure to visit the store Bella Creationz home of Timeless Twine to view not only the twine
but also the other amazing product lines.

Scrapbook Stamp Society - Vintage digitals on layouts make fabulous accents

OMG working with an amazing vintage image makes creating so easy from Scrapbook Stamp Society. Today I would love to share this  page... 
it's a perfect accent with my gramma's very old photo.
Now add clustered flowers, a few pieces of fabulous lace, metal accents, a punched border,
an acyrylic butterfly and a untreated chipboard Title.
Use lots of paper layers with inked edges and what an amazing vintage page.

I am using a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy Monday

The close ups show more details....

The pop of green lace was perfect... and the Kreaxions punched border inked is 
a great addition to the border layers.
Flowers in a cluster are a great accent on any project.

This section highlights the amazing image that was so perfect for this page.

Here is the link to this Hat Digital Vintage Download Image in the store.

Bella Creationz Timeless Twine.. and my 1st DT project with amazing products

Welcome today to my first Bella Creationz Timeless Twine post.
Super excited to share projects using this amazing product line.
Timeless Twine is the #1 product line but OMG there are some super 
fun additional products available in the store also.

What a great clear stamp line... and this is only a few of them.

Today I am sharing journal pages that I put together and gave to my eledest Grand Daughter for 
part of her Christmas gift. She is now away from home on her own at University and I thought
it would be a perfect time to share with her some super quotes to get her through some days 
when things are not so perfect and she was feeling alone... so she knows we are with her
at all times in our thoughts and prayers along her journey to adulthood.

Braid your tie and have it ready to size to your project.

I tied the end of the twine when the length was established.

I used my new stamp set on this page and also glued another accent piece of twine to it.


I twine accented the banner, covered the cardboard heart frame and wrapped and tied a bow
to the lower edges of page.  

In this close up you can see the embossed section and the addition of washi tape.


This super cute page is highlighted by a twine made butterfly.
Wrap twine around about 2 fingers and then tie the centre leaving the feeler pieces and then
add a twine flight path.
I added a twine bow to adhere the metal key and also hand stitched the base border.


On this double page piece I used twine and the fun stamp set.

On this side I wrapped multiple times and tied at the centre to pull it in.
In this thinned out section I glued the accent.
This page has Creative Embellishments and a We R Memory ink roller stitching.

On this side a added the blanket stitch edging. See below.

Start by taping to the backside the twine end. Pulling end to the right and holding with your thumb..take the needle below and up through the paper as per above. Pull tight and repeat again all the way across the page.


On this fun double I used twine accents and added some sequin accents.

On this side I hand stitched the shape of a frame to add the quote.
On the lower section there are fun sequins, a stamped butterfly, stamped title 
 and some dew drop flowers.

On the left side I added a double row of twine to form a border accent.


On this page I formed a sunray of twine.. cascading from the verse.


This page is accented with wrapped twine and a button accent on the top.
In the lower punched section I weaved twine and tied a knot in each centre section.


This page boasts and very long line of swirled twine to accent the verse.


With the rainbow in the verse section it prompted the twine coloured rainbow.

After viewing all the above.. I hope you are inspired to add even the smallest
of twine accents to some more detailed ones. So many possible ideas and possibilities
for all projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.. so happy to share my 1st of many projects 
using Bella Creationz Timeless Twine and many other Products with you.

CHA and my projects for Paper House booth

I am honored that Paper House used my projects in the CHA display using the newest 
line of Color Ways Emerald collection.

The photos aren't the best as they are shared on FB by Shaena.
So.. below are my actual clear photos of some of my projects on display.

I had an amazing time creating with new product lines and 
how exciting is this to see them on display at CHA. 
The only way it would be better is if I could have been there in person.
