Hello {card} and Smile {box}

Hello! :) I am a few days late with this post, so please excuse my tardiness. Ashlyn had surgery on Wednesday and ended up being unexpectedly admitted until Friday evening. That's my girl- always keeping us on our toes. ;) She is resting at home now and feeling much better.

Onto the fun stuff- I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a Guest Designer for Trendy Twine! My month will be September, so stay tuned for some fun twine projects.

Until then, here are two projects I created using the Totally White Bakers Twine (it's on sale so snag it up!).

I cut dozens of strips of twine and glued them to a piece of cardstock. I added the die cut piece on top and then adhered to a card base. A little time consuming, but the end result was well worth it.

Hello card supplies:
