Trendy Twine - Life's an Adventure

Happy 4th of July to all my bloggy friends!!
The Trendy Gals and myself have created wonderful projects for memory keeping. 

I created a Mini Album!!

I used Recollections Black & White card stock to cover the Recollections Chipboard Mini Album. For the edges I used black ink. The paper flowers, tags, wooden words (smile), stickers and ribbon are all from the 1.50 bin over at Michael's Craft Store. Since I did not have the Trendy Page Dots to coordinate with my colors, I improvised by using a circle die, a hole puncher and Bazzill Basics Dotted Swiss card stock (yellow) for some fun texture. To make my shaker, I used a scallop square die cut from the Cricut Design Space and added the BEAUTIFUL  Bumblebee Sequins to the inside. On the rings I added strips of ribbon and Totally Black trendy twine.

I used Totally White for the adorable pom poms.

For my photo mats I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Squares. 
I added a Totally Black bow on the tag.

I added a Totally White bow on the tag and used foam tape on the tags for dimension.

I made a pretty butterfly with the Totally Lemon twine.

Isn't the Totally Lemon butterfly pretty?

I added a Totally Lemon bow on the tag.

Don't you just love the Totally Lemon bow?

I made another pretty butterfly with the Totally White twine.

Here is a closer look at the flowers, twine, and shaker.

I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend!
