Cake Time with Trendy Twine

Cake Time with Trendy Twine
Hi Everyone!
So glad you could drop in and check out my DT post for Trendy Twine.
I'm always so excited to work with Trendy Twine, it's the best twine out there! Make sure you check out the sale on the Chocolate Sprinkles that I used in my layouts.
Don't forget about the CHALLENGE, it's an awesome way to win some yummilicious twine of your own!

I have a neighbor that just recently started decorating cakes. She has had no training, this is all self taught. I wanted to do something nice for her, so I decided to make her a paper bag album to put her pics in.

Here are the pages that I used my Chocolate Sprinkles on and I think they turned out heavenly:





 Doesn't hurt that the cakes are beautiful either!
Album is approx.,: 6 x 6 and is made from paper lunch bags. I used DCWV's the SWEET STACK (one of my faves).
Hope you will come back and see me soon.
Thanks so much for dropping in.

Strut your Style Blog Hop with JustAFewFriends

Strut your Style Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our "Strut your Style" blog hop today.
Please excuse how messy our dens look but we have been super busy creating in order to inspire you. Encourage you to stop hoarding all those awesome supplies. Cut them up, glue them together and make projects. Projects that will make you smile and feel all warm and cozy inside.

So here is the first glimpse of my Purrrrfffeeectttt lil paper bag album:

I have a neighbor that is blessed with a cake decorating skill. I wanted to make her something to showcase her beautiful cakes in. Paper bag albums are pretty durable and fun to make.
It took six lunch bags to make this one in my den this week. I had fun cutting and pasting and purring right along.







Of course I used my favorite paper stack DCWV's The Sweet Stack.
Lots of ribbon and Trendy Twine completes my Purrfect lil album.
Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to visit the other dens along the way.
Pounce or prowl on over to Bon's, she is next on the list!
In case you get lost....here is the complete lineup:

Blessings

Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine

Chocolate Sprinkles

Mmmmm, doesn't that just sound so yummy?
This month over at Trendy Twine our group project was to create a 3D item with the theme Snips & Snails and Puppy Dog tails (little boy themed) and use the yummylicious Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Twine. That's the special this month...so make sure you hop on over and purchase it while its on sale this month.

I decided to make a baby shower treat bag for the challenge. I used a cutting file from Paper Piecing by Nikki to create this awesome little bag. The bib was made from the Chocolate Sprinkles as was the ribbon holding the bag together and the tiny little bow holding the monkeys diaper in place.

Glossy accents gives the bottle, pacifier and big black monkey nose a little shine. Love my glossy accents that's for sure.

Here's a couple more views of the bag:

Hope to see you join in the September's challenge, I always love seeing what everyone creates.
Thanks for dropping in today and I look forward to sharing my next project with you soon.
