Sting Like A Bee Trendy Twine Blog Hop

Yippee!!! It's my very first post as a member of the Trendy Twine Design Team!! I feel like this has been a super hard secret to keep and am so happy today is finally here so the cat can be let outta the bag!! :) I am so happy Lesley has given me this opportunity and am already loving playing with this great twine!!

If you are here from Brigit's blog, then you are in the right place. If you have just stumbled upon this hop, make sure to head back to the Trendy Twine blog to make sure you don't miss out on any of the great projects using this awesome new twine!!

I'm sure you are well aware by now, that today is the release day of the great new Bumblebee twine!!


So fun, right?! The Bumblebee twine is only $8 today only!! (After today, the spool is back to the regular price of $9). I love bumblebees so I was so excited to get started on my project...


I used my Bumblebee twine to add stripes to the body of my bee adding ATG tape on the backside of my body layer, then wrapping the twine around until it was completely covered. And of course I had to add a bow to turn my little bee into a girl... :) 

And a blog hop just wouldn't be a blog hop without some great blog candy... Jaded Blossom (whom I am Guest Designing for in August!!!) has donated their great stamp set, Love Stings for one lucky winner!! 


All you have to do to win this stamp set is make sure you are a follower of the Trendy Twine blog and leave a comment on each blog in this hop (by 11:59pm CST Friday). Pretty easy!! 

Here are all the supplies I used to make my card:
- Trendy Twine Bumblebee Twine
- Pink By Design Honey Pie stamp set
- Recollections washi tape
- Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Honey Bees cutting files set

- My Creative Time mini flag die

I am the very last blog on this hop so I hope you have enjoyed the hop and loved all the great projects!! Here is a list of all the blogs in the hop, just in case! Thanks for stopping by!!
