Ruby Rock-It and The Twinery Blog Hop - Day 3

Hello and welcome to the Ruby Rock-It and The Twinery Blog Hop!!

This week, design team members from both companies are teaming up to provide several days of project inspiration!

If you arrived here from Jeanne Jachna's blog then you're in the right place, if not, you might want to start at today's beginning at: Ruby Rock-It's blog.

There are some fantastic prizes to be won! To be eligible for these prizes, simply start from the beginning and hop all the way through, leaving a comment on each designer's blog over the 3 days and then go back to the blogs of Ruby Rock-It and The Twinery to let them know you have! Comments close Monday, September 22nd at 11:59pm PST and we will announce the winner later in the week!

The prize to be won from Ruby Rock-It is the fabulous "Empire Bebe" collection:

And the prize to be won from The Twinery are 3 full spools of this awesome twine!! Winner's choice!

And now on to the project I created for the hop: this card using Ruby Rock-It's My Romance and Celebrate collections and a die-cut from a decoupage pack and some awesome pink striped twine from The Twinery:

Here are a few close-ups of how I used the twine. I cut a strip of white cardstock and punched out three hearts. Then I cut another strip of white cardstock, a bit smaller than the first one, added a bit of adhesive (with a roller) and wound the twine around it. I placed the strip with the hearts cut out on top and tada! ready!

I just love the soft pink color of the twine in combination with these papers from Ruby Rock-It/Bella!

Supplies: Ruby Rock-It: "Bella! My Romance" collection, "Bella! Celebrate" collection, "Fundamentals Decoupage Pack Birds" and The Twinery "Blossom Stripe" twine.

Now it's time to hop on to the next stop on our hop: the fabulous Denise Hahn!
