top dog dies and the twinery blog hop…

Good Monday morning!


What better way to start a new week than with a fun blog hop, lots of fun ideas, and even prizes?!?  This week, the team at Top Dog Dies is joining forces with The Twinery to bring you oodles of ideas and inspiration for your next paper-crafting project!

I created a set of three cards using the Alaina Lace Border Die from Top Dog Dies, several different colors of twine from The Twinery, and fun papers from the “Be Different” collection by Fancy Pants Designs.

Here’s a closer look at each of the three cards I created:

Even though these dies are more on the "fancy" spectrum, rather than the "playful and cute" spectrum where the papers and embellishments lie, they still work together well!
