2012 Scrapbook Trend #3: Baker's Twine

Hi and welcome to another project showcasing the top 10 scrapbook trends for 2012. Number 3 is Baker's Twine. This one is also not a 'new' trend for me, but it is always fun to try new and different ways to use Baker's twine.

I used the sketch from the challenge over at The Friday Mashup this week.

This cute little guy is from Bugaboo: Dino Heart. I thought he was perfect for a card I had been wanting to make for awhile: "RAWR means I love you in dinosaur." I always say 'Rawr' to my hubby, and to be honest, I don't think he even knows what it means. He thinks I'm just being silly and so he humors me, lol. So I have been wanting to make a card to let him know exactly what it means! Here is the interior of the card:

I didn't have a stamp that said "means I love you in dinosaur", lol. I thought about typing something up on the computer, but decided to use some stickers from MME instead. They are meant to be a little skee-wompus. The Valentine's stamp is from Whimsical Designs (With Love)
I have a tip for Top Tip Tuesday this week: In order to get the edges of my banner in that nice little pattern I actually took my Zig glue pin and drew a swirly line with the glue, then laid the twine over it. It laid perfectly!

These little beauties were some blog candy I won from Debbie Bakk at Debbie's Scrappin Corner. She MAKES these! Aren't they adorable?? As soon as I received them from her I had to make something! Thank you Debbie, I LOVE them!!
