anniversary party week 3

Is everyone enjoying the anniversary festivities so far? This is week three of the PageMaps month-long birthday bash and we've got a really fun give-away in store for you. A beautiful collection of trims, twines, jute and linen from Montana Misfits is up for grabs! Did I just hear a collective querie, "What is Montana Misfts?" hee hee Well, *that* announcement will have to wait until the anniversary party is over, but here's a sneak peek at some of their wild, whacky, wonderful stuff, and all of it could be yours!

For your chance to win, post here what your favourite type of trim/twine/ribbon is and how you like to use it on your projects. We'll draw a random winner next week from all of the posts.

Wouldn't you agree that Lynn Ghahary's videos, part 1 and 2, have been amazing so far?? Honestly, the way she puts together a how-to makes me want to scrap on the spot. Here's her third installment of the 4-part video series and in it, you'll learn how to make a flower embellishment from a couple of unusual PageMaps dies. Fun stuff everyone -- enjoy!


Good luck!

Becky

  4. I think that my favorite is baker's twine. The different colors look so cute with whatever I make (I mostly make cards) because there are so many colors available, and the twine is so thin that it's not overwhelming.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I've been using baker's twine more and more recently. I find that not only can it be tied around a card or layout with a bow, but you can use it to make flowers, add to pre-made embellies, wrapped around chipboard letters, etc. The possibilities are endless!

  54. Great video! And what a great giveaway, very much in suspense about Montana Misfits! My go-to trim is probably grosgrain ribbon. It's boring, but it goes with pretty much everything, easy to adhere, comes in pretty much every color, so it's my everyday trim. After that probably twine, but I do love fancy and antique trims....just tend to hoard those a bit more.

  79. The fanny pack is Gianmarco Lorenzi Shoes Sale under many names. Only in the US there are several monsters beats by dr.dre terms used, including "belt pack", "belly bag", "buffalo pouch", and "hip sack". In the UK they also use the terms "hip pack" and "bum bag", while the name "moon bags" is used in other parts of themonsters beats solo. Whatever you want to call them, Gianmarco Lorenzi Boots, they have not been in fashion for many years. If you want the flexibility of the fanny pack, we will explain why you should rather consider a swing bag. Trust us, the fashion comeback ofGianmarco LorenZi Pumps packs is likely never to happen.The reason cheap monsters beats they are called fanny packs is that they were originally worn facing the monsters beats outlet above the buttocks, which are often referred to as fanny in the United States.

Otherwise they do not have this proper.Cheap Jordans In case you might be looking for low-cost Jordans purchasing them from the jordan sneakers importers could be the excellent resolution only in case you can trust that they are reliable types. There are many frauds around the Internet, this is why you should read a lot more carefully the ideas wrote earlier about how to recognize real jordan sneakers.Cheap Jordans For Sale Following those steps you should have the possibility to not be cheated. The best way you'll be able to verify if a particular importer has the correct to sell these footwear and if the merchandise is for true or not is by asking directly the Nike's personnel if they gave their approval for that importer to promote jordan sneakers. As it was mentioned earlier you might desire to have jordan sneakers,Jordan Retro 13 and low-cost Jordans seem to become one among the best solutions you can ever have, but this doesn't mean that you just have to replace the good quality only to the image. The image and the name will not be the most critical items about these footwear. Another thing you can do will be to search for reviews wrote by persons who already bought from a specified importer or another and like that they will certify you if the merchandise are real or not.Air Jordan Retro 1Jordan Retro 1 In the event you adore jordan shoes so a lot, and also you wish to benefit of every one of the rewards they can bring along with them, you must respect them also. By keeping away from frauds and fakes may be the very first step to show them respect.Nike and Air Jordan are two powerful names, which can guarantee the success to anyone who uses them as a label. Everyone in this globe heard about Nike, and it really is considered to get the top activity items model from this Sector. By joining with Michael Jordan and earning the rights to create jordan shoes, for him and for all his followers, the success was greater than guaranteed. Several manufacturers might appreciate a short periods of success,Retro Jordans but Nike achieve the success for unlimited periods of time. jordan sneakers have been searched and requested through the first day they have been introduced on the market place. Beside they will always be searched and requested.

The music paper can be used in a collage, on an invitation to my boys' orchestra concert, on a scrapbook page with pictures of the music our family enjoys....so many uses - and then I'd tie a bow around it with the baker's twine! LOL
