Twinery & Imaginisce Showcase

Welcome to The Twinery & Imaginisce blog hop!  I am so glad you stopped by!


If you are following along in the blog hop, you should have come from Tiffany Hood's blog!   If you would like to start at the beginning, visit The Twinery's blog for a full list of those participating each day!


There are some fabulous prizes too! 

SIX lucky winners will receive either...



'I Dream in Twine', The Twinery's full collection of all 18 colors

or


Imaginisce's 'Makin' Waves' Collection!

To be eligible to win visit each participating designer's blog each day of the hop & leave a comment by Sunday, April 22.


The paper kit that I used from Imaginisce was "Sole Sisters" and it is all about friendships and girl time!  I decided to go with a girl's night out party theme.


For the party theme, I created a card to send out as an invitation, some lollipop favors and a colorful little candy cup.


The paper kit, Sole Sisters, included lots of fun premade tags, chipboard shapes and diecuts so it was so fast & simple to create a card!  I used some coordinating trendy tape that I picked up at my local stores and attached the black & white houndstooth tag that was included with the kit.  I added a single strand of Twinery twine as a bow accent down the side.  I love how one tiny piece of the Twinery's twine adds such a pop to a card!


For the candy cup, I purchased a very inexpensive (50 cents on sale!) glass votive candle holder and filled it with colorful candy to match the theme.  I cut some red muslin in a circle and then rubber banded it to the top of the candle holder so it was easy to tie the twine & buttons in place.  I punched a circle with the cutest purse paper from the paper kit and attached it to the top of the muslin.  It made a super quick, super inexpensive party gift!


I also made some lollipops to serve as additional favors and to use as decoration.  I attached another one of the stickers from the kit onto a punched piece of coordinating cardstock and tied two different colors of twine.  Fast and simple!


Here is a side view so you can see how the lollipop looks from the side.


Thank you for visiting us on our hop today!! Be sure to visit The Twinery & Imaginisce's blogs tomorrow to continue on with more product showcasing from both companies!

Don't forget to leave a comment on each participating blog to be eligible to win one of the SIX prizes up for grabs!

Take care and thank you for visiting!
