Playing in Paradise #98

Happy Friday everyone, we made it through the first week of 2013. I am not one for New Years resolutions and I don’t  endeavor to make any changes in the new year other than to stop over eating all the wonderful treats that appear over the holidays.

I did not craft as much as I would have liked over the holiday but maybe that is a good thing as I am jumping back in with some fresh Ideas.

Playing in Paradise welcomes a new Challenge team member this week. Welcome to Dawn, it is so exciting to have you join us. Dawn is our hostess this week and has challenged us to use something new. I have to admit this was not too difficult for me, I have been an active online shopper this holiday season and I have lots of wonderful crafting goodies to choose from.

Right before Christmas I ordered an obscene amount of twine from the Scrapbooker’s Paradise online store… seriously there is a large selection and I think I order just about ordered 1 of every colour.  I had a picture of the box filled with all the spools but I lost it so I took a smaller picture of a few up on my shelf.
I could argue that this sweet paper is also new, I broke the seal on my 6X6 paper pack for this card.  I used die cuts for the two sizes of balloons, then added some foam tape to the background. I added the twine, pulling it tight to gather it and added some little ties. I finished with an heat embossed sentiment.
Supplies: Natural White and navy cardstock, Designer Paper -Jillibean Soup , The Stamps of Life-balloons2cut, Fiskars-All Yeay Cheer, twine.
Stop by the Playing in Paradise blog to join in the fun and play along with this week’s challenge and to welcome our new challenge team member.


  1. That is so fun! I love the idea of incorporating twine in this way!

  2. Hi Sis,

    this card is FABULOUS - I'm a hooty fan so this card just tickles me. It says FUN in a big way and the colors pull it together perfectly. I don't think we can appreciate all your wonderful layers and textures.
