Friday Favorites: Scrapbook Steals and the Twinery

So I have somehow convinced myself that giving certain days of the week a theme or title may help me become a somewhat \consistent blogger.  Wordless Wednesday.  Hello Thursday.  And now introducing...Friday Favorites.  Since this the first installment, I'm making it a double feature.  :)

Scrapbook Steals.  For those of you that follow my crafting journey, you know that the community at Scrapbook Steals (and specifically Kristy Lee) have been instrumental in motivating and inspiring me to scrapbook and ultimately finish Charlotte's first year album.  They are featuring on their amazing blog some fantastic ideas for twine that are not to be missed.

And while you're at it, go check out what they have on sale today at the store.  (Remember to click on the little scissors icon to visit the secret archives.)  Some of the "steals" they feature are just too good to be passed up - much to my wallets dismay.  And since we're on the topic of twine, this leads into my second Friday Favorite...

The Twinery.  This store sells the most gorgeous 100% cotton, made in the USA bakers twine.  The twine comes in a variety of 14 delicious colors "for crafting, packaging and more!"  Bakers twine is certainly very "hot" in the crafting industry right now and the quality of Twinery twine will certainly not disappoint.  Below are a few of my projects highlighting the versatility of this twine. 

I've wrapped twine around cards to make it a bit more special.

I've used twine to string banners.  This particular project is the album cover to Charlotte's first year scrapbook (which I will have to share in its entirety another day).

On this layout (which is actually the last page to Charlotte's first year album), I glued the twine down to create the butterfly's tracks.  Since the focus of the page is the letter itself, the twine really stands out.

And on this layout, I used twine to outline the "string" of the banner sticker.

If anyone is interested, below are the supplies that I used to make the projects featured in today's post.

As always, thanks for stopping and by and please feel free to leave a comment.  I do love reading them!
