The Cardmaker+The Twinery bloghop

Hi everyone!
I hope that you have had a wonderful blog hop so far!

If you have hopped your way through the bloghop-list, you came to me from Penny Ward

We here at The Twinery are so excited to be joining up with CardMaker for this twine-tastic blog hop! Designers from both design teams will inspire you with projects created using our fabulous baker’s twine

CardMaker, featuring instructions for handcrafted greetings for every occasion, was introduced as the first major magazine devoted to the card-making craft in 2005. It remains the leading print-and-digital publication for card-making enthusiasts on the market and will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year. CardMaker is an Annie’s publication. Annie’s products — including magazines, books, kits and supplies, online classes and TV programming — are targeted to home and family interests, including crafts, nostalgia and home décor.

Since we dont celebrate Thanksgiving over here I made a card with a thank you note… perfect for a cute gift or as it is to a good friend!

Now for my Mini Album Ive used Kraft Cardstock as a base, I trimmed it down to 3pcs 4″ each, that I folded and put together with the Helmar Glueroller.   After that  I added the gorgeous GP#405 Surfs up paper from Best Creations, I love that orange colour in the paper and Ive used the glitter Cardstock GCS064-diamond to punch out some cute butterflies 🙂

The Edge punch I have used is from EK success, and called Round binding.

the adhesives Ive used is the Helmar Glue runner and the Large round Zapdots.

now its time for me to say thank you for dropping by… now hop on to Jona Saavedra.

Have a nice day
