Pretty In Pink Blog hop with Trendy Twine!



Hi everyone!

I'm super excited to be a part of the hop to announce the two NEWEST colors at Trendy Twine!
Can you believe that these two new additions make 42 different colors fo twine now available?  WOW!  I think I need to take inventory ... 





Let's welcome Pink Licorice and Pink Midnight! 


Could there be better timing on this release?  I mean the things that you could do with these for Valentines day... seriously!  I'm thinking boxes, cards, spruced up valentines... endless opportunities here!

AND ... GREAT NEWS ... for a limited time (this weekend only) you can get your pretty little hands on the set of two spools for only $16.50.  But be sure to grab them now .. because after the weekend they back to their normal prices!

Here's the link to Grab them NOW ... Pink Midnight and Pink Licorice Bundle Special

Now .. do you LOVE these but just can't bring yourself to commit to two whole spools?  (Sounds crazy to me)  You can grab a mini pack HERE for only $3.95.  This is an introductory price for the new release .. so act fast .. deal goes away at the end of the weekend.



Now .. on to the fabulous projects that the team has created to show off how awesome these colors are.


Here is the line up for the hop.  If you've stumbled upon my post first .. I highly suggest you go back and see the cuteness that Candi created .. then make your way back here!  I promise you won't be disappointed!


Dawn ~ YOU ARE HERE!

For this hop I REALLY wanted to challenge myself.  Get out of my comfort zone.  Well .. Lesley is kinda to blame for this as she asked us all to create a 3D object.  Well .. wowza .. that IS out of my comfort zone!

I knew all along what I WANTED to make .. however I wasn't sure HOW I was gonna do it.   Well, one evening ... one LATE evening .. I stumbled upon a talented lady's blog.  Her name is Ilda Dias and she has some amazing projects that she shares with the world!  Anyhow ... Ilda posted THIS project on her blog and I was TOTALLY inspired.  I knew I had to make this.  I contacted her and she graciously provided me with the file that she used to create this awesome gem of a project!  Thanks so much Ilda!

Here is the direct link to her blog ... http://www.ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com/
Be sure to check her out and send her some love!

Here is my version of Ilda's hot air balloon.
The 'basket' is a box to store your Valentine's Day treats.  
I've also incorporated a pull out tag to serve as a card.



Here is the box put together


You can see in this picture that the tag pulls out of the box to allow for a fun Valentine's Day greeting for a friend or a loved one.


Here is a close up of the box.

And a close up of the Balloon

Last but not least, a close up of the pull out tag.

I hope that this project inspires you to get out of YOUR comfort zone!   Who knows what I'll create next!
