PTI at an angle.

It's PTI Blog hop day.   I love visiting as many of the blogs on the first day as I can.   There is so much inspiration out there.   This months challenge is to "tilt".   The world has been on a tilt lately so I am happy for a pretty tilt.   Here is the photo posted for inspiration and then my take on the



And mine....yes that is washi tape there that the gorgeous sunflowers are sitting on.   Super easy and fun to use.   The twine is the next Red Shimmer.

It's the PTI MIM challenge

Think layers, layers, layers but only with your stamps.   I loved Dawn's challenge today and had a great time creating this card for Mother's Day.   Non traditional colors here but I am very happy with the results.   You can see the PTI goodness here.

It's a Blog Hop for April Fools Day

Welcome to day 2 of Little Prince Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoyed your day yesterday looking through all of the blogs.  My name is Jodi and I am the owner of Talking Twine and Trim @ etsy found   It is a bakers twine shop with some fun new items such as pattern paper straws, seam binding, cupcake boxes, cookie bags and washi tape.   Recently I did a 1 day outdoor boutique and I had questions about what can you do with all of the bright, fun colorful stuff.   So today I am going to share a few ideas that would also work with the little guys in your life.   

It's a fun little party favor.   I took a mix of paper straws in boy colors and started with a full length straw and just kept cutting them down by a 1/2 inch.  Then I took 2 lengths of washi tape and taped them together.   Kids could make there own they are so easy!   With that said these little straw pipes don't make noise so they are a mothers dream but a little guy to sing/hum his tune and then they do make music.

 Next is a simple scrapbook page.   Yes it has flowers and such on it but the pinwheels are cross gender and I see some great outdoor photos housed here.  There is a bit of washi tape on this layout.

Next is a pillow box that is the perfect place for a gift card.   Slip it in and fold up the edges.   I finished it off with some die cuts, tag and of course my passion bakers twine.

Ok now for the good stuff.   Yes there is a freebie attached to this blog post and this is it.

Yes a prize package of ocean goodness.   10 yards of ocean bakers twine, a roll of ocean washi tape and a box of ocean straws.   Here is how you can win this in a random draw.
