Sweet Summertime Co-Blog Hop with Trendy Twine and SVG Attic


 
Welcome to the Trendy Twine-SVG Attic Sweet Summertime blog hop! We are excited to have you join us today.
 
At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of Trendy Twine and SVG Attic. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will  be at the top of your crafting lists.
 
You should be arriving here from -----'s blog. if you happened across this post out of order, please head to the Trendy Twine blog to start at the beginning of the hop.
 
SVG Attic's Cape Cod collection has a lot of fun elements perfect for a variety of projects. I decided to use them to make these two cards for you. And pairing them up with some Totally White and Totally Red Trendy Twine was the perfect touch.
 
For the first card, I pieced together the sailboat to fit nicely on my A2 size card base. I then took my Totally White Trendy Twine and wrapped it around the left side and attached the anchor to it. I then added the sentiment "Make today ridiculously Amazing!"
 
 
For the second card, I cut out the pieces for the lighthouse and added the rock to the bottom of the card base flush with the background paper. I then took the background piece of the lighthouse and wrapped Totally Red Trendy Twine around the bottom half. I then layered the rest of the pieces over the top to finish it off. I added this to my card on the left side leaving room for my sentiment in the top right corner that says "Faith does not make things easy, it makes things possible."

I love the idea of "wrapping" the twine around the piece of paper .. so easy - and then you don't have to have the exact color of cardstock - and you get dimension to boot!
